Today’s Team: Reddish Raiders
P/P Elementium Geode (Feedback, Amplify Magic, Elementium Bolt)
P/S Chi-Chi (Fire Quills, Tranquility, Feign Death)
H/S Scalded Basilisk Hatchling (Crystal Prison, Feign Death, Thrash)
It’s been a long time since I made any new basilisk teams. At one point it was my favorite pet to battle with. I don’t know why but I gradually stopped using it. Tonight I dusted it off and decided that a double Feign Death team would be fun. Flyers have always given the Scalded Basilisk Hatchling trouble so I included the Elementium Geode for a magic attack. If all of the opposing pets are slower I’ll start with the basilisk for a Crystal Prison and Thrash.
When the Scalded Basilisk Hatching is slower than the opposing pet it is seriously gimped since the extra attack from Thrash is based on being faster. Crystal Prison is also much more effective when faster.
The Opposing Team:
P/P Dread Hatchling
H/H Unborn Val’kyr
This was a close battle that was decided by the detonation of the Magma Trap. It remains my contention that traps are broken and need to be fixed. Let’s see, my Scalded Basilisk Hatchling was interrupted, stunned the next turn and had 410 damage done. All in one move. The sad thing is that I still would have won after the Magma Trap went off except for a Flamethrower crit. Don’t get me wrong, my opponent made good choices and deserved the win, it’s just that losing to traps is annoying. The Scalded Basilisk Hatchling and Chi-Chi both performed well, as did the Elementium Geode. I may give this team another try, or I may replace the Elementium Geode with something else.
