Today’s Team: Spanksgiving
P/S Highlands Turkey (Peck, Squawk, Food Coma)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)
H/S Scalded Basilisk Hatchling (Crystal Prison, Feign Death, Thrash)
I like using the a turkey for a very simple trick. I start with Food Coma to put the enemy pet to sleep. Then my opponent can choose to either swap or not. If they don’t swap then I get a free turn (since Food Coma lasts for 2 rounds), if they do swap then it’s no loss at all. I’m surprised at how many people stay in rather than swap. Usually I’ll bring the Spirit Crab in to throw down a Whirlpool or put up a shield on my free turn. Even when this doesn’t work these pets are solid, so far there have been plenty of wins with a few losses here and there.
As always, flyers make me nervous when I use the basilisk. Right before doing this write up I got spanked by a Warbot and a moth. The spank in Spanksgiving is supposed to be for me spanking other teams, not vice versa!
The Opposing Team:
S/S Alpine Foxling
P/B Kun-Lai Runt
P/S Scourged Whelpling
My opponent fell for the trick. I cast Food Coma on the Scourged Whelpling then swapped to the Spirit Crab. The Scourged Whelpling stayed in, which allowed my crab to cast Whirlpool while the undead dragon was asleep. This allowed my Spirit Crab to win the head to head then get off another Whirlpool and a Snap against the KLR. The basilisk finished off the KLR with a Crystal Prison and Thrashes. The Alpine Foxling was faster than my Scalded Basilisk Hatchling so I brought back the turkey for a fairly easy kill and a fairly easy win.
