Today’s Team: Red Fawn
P/P Son Of Animus (Metal Fist, Touch Of The Animus, Extra Plating)
S/S Grizzly Squirrel (Woodchipper, Crouch, Nut Barrage)
P/B Infected Fawn (Flurry, Adrenaline Rush, Death And Decay)
It’s been a while since I’ve used my trusty Son Of Animus so here’s another DoT/field effect team based on Touch Of The Animus. With Death and Decay, Woodchipper and Nut Barrage all able to get heals from Touch Of The Animus this team can be quite resilient if played right. The plan: get the DoTs and field effects going, swap to the Son Of Animus and watch the heals add up.
While I’ve had some success with these Touch Of The Animus teams they always have a “second tier” feel to them. With all the small damage attacks a Sandstorm might ruin me. Actually Son Of Animus is decent against the Anubisath Idol. Not great, but decent.
The Opposing Team:
B/B Unborn Val’kyr
P/S Crawling Claw
Thank you queue.
As if it wasn’t nice enough to have three undead pets to use all my strong attacks against the enemy pets were named “youlost”, “quitcryin”, and “gohome”. I just love spanking people who name their pets like that. And spank I did. The Grizzly Squirrel started out to get the Nut Barrage going, its target was an Unborn Val’kyr. Curse Of Doom and Haunt were not worrying me too much since I used Crouch on the second round. The Crawling Claw replaced the Unborn Val’kyr and got more nuts dropped on it. It was then kind enough to Death Grip the Son Of Animus into play. Touch Of The Animus was used to help the Grizzly Squirrel gain back some hp and now the rout was on. Son Of Animus healed itself twice with Metal Fist then applied Extra Plating. For the record, if I thought this battle was going to be closer I probably would have applied Extra Plating before Touch Of The Animus. My mech finished off the Crawling Claw, the healed Grizzly Squirrel came back in to finish the Val’kyr, then the Blighthawk missed a Lift-Off before running away. Someone is indeed going home, but it’s not me.
