After missing last week I’m ready to rumble!
Battle 1 (Ripalot)
Electrified Razortooth, Snarly, Spineclaw Crab
vs. Anubisath Idol, Gilnean Raven, Unborn Val’kyr
This was a tough one to start off with. I had two aquatics to help with the Val’kyr but there was that scary Raven to deal with. My opponent never got off a Haunt or Ascension or Curse of Doom, it was quite odd. They just spammed Shadow Slash against first Snarly and then the Spineclaw, who each hit the val’kyr with a Blood In The Water. Lightning Shield really took its toll on the Alpha Striking bird. I still had the Idol to deal with, luckily it had Stoneskin rather than Sandstorm. It came down to the last move, my Spineclaw took out the Idol with 228 hp remaining. I never get tired of seeing Idols on their faces.
Battle 2 (Pay To Haunt)
Lil’ Ragnoros, Murkalot, Unborn Val’kyr
vs. Gilnean Raven, Death Adder Hatchling, Lil’ Bling
Murkalot started against the snake and put up shields as the snake Poisoned him. Just to be less predictable I decided to throw in a Blessed Hammer before the RI. That turned out to be a great call since my opponent swapped to the bird. Those strong attacks took out the bird fast. I finally RI’d when Lil’ Bling came in. The Val’kyr got the buff and was able to keep the buff for the entire duration of Haunt. That turned out to be enough to completely take out Lil’ Bling who tried to hide on the back line while the snake faced Rag. My opponent was still in the battle until the Magma Trap went off. They ran away.
Battle 3 (AK 6)
Tiny Bog Beast, Unborn Val’kyr, Magical Crawdad
vs. Anodized Robo Cub, Shimmering Wyrmling, Murkalot
I wish I would have had a Cyclone to deal with those shields. I also wish Demolish hit at 50%. I got hit by four out of five Demolishes, the important one being the Supercharged one that took me out. I was about to say that this battle “doesn’t count” since Demolish is broken, but last game I just took out a Lil’ Bling with one Haunt thanks to RI. One Haunt. The whole damn meta is broken. It would be hypocritical of me to say that the broken moves I use count and Demolish doesn’t. So I will take my licks and an early exit from this week with a measly two wins, along with a chuckle and tear at the current state of PvP pet battles.
Final Score: 2
