Today’s Team: Agent Black
H/H Bone Serpent (Bone Barrage, Call Darkness, Nocturnal Strike)
P/P Dread Raven (Shadow Talon, Call Darkness, Anzu’s Blessing)
S/S Nightshade Sproutling (Lash, Call Darkness, Blinding Poison)
I’m taking Vapid’s suggestion (4/19/15) about replacing my Junglebeak with a Dread Raven on one of my current best teams. The Bone Serpent and Nightshade Sproutling combo has been absolutely lethal for me, winning over 90% of the time since I’ve been keeping track of team win loss records. The Dread Raven adds a magic attack into the mix. I chose Anzu’s Blessing over another Nocturnal Strike to keep things interesting, but I’ll probably change the buff with the attack if it turns out to be a bad choice.
I know there will come a time when I could win with a Nocturnal Strike from the raven but instead I have Anzu’s Blessing. I know it.
The Opposing Team:
P/S Fossilized Hatchling
Hopling started against my Nightshade Sproutling. I won the coin toss and blinded the vermin. The Fossilized Hatchling came in to take a Call Darkness to the face bone. I swapped to the Bone Serpent and all it took was a triple-hitting Bone Barrage and a Nocturnal Strike to take the opposing undead to 0. Hopling came in after that to interrupt then die quickly from Bone Barrage, Call Darkness then another Bone Barrage. There was no way the Tideskipper would be able to come back from this far behind; the Dread Hatchling easily killed it in round thirteen. Another faceroll, courtesy of the Bone Serpent.
