Today’s Team: Supermodel
S/S Bronze Whelpling (Arcane Slash, Crystal Prison, Lift-Off)
H/S Young Talbuk (Horn Gore, Tough N’ Cuddly, Flurry)
S/S Sky-Bo (Flamethrower, Sticky Grenade, Decoy)
I’ve been having a lot of fun with the Young Talbuk. It has Flurry to put a beating on undead, a shield to reduce damage and a reasonably powerful normal attack. I chose the Bronze Whelpling to make my team a bit more competitive. I realized I have a big weakness to mechs since Arcane Slash is weak to mechs and mech attacks will do strong damage to me beast. I wanted some elemental damage because of this. While looking through elemental attacks I noticed Sky-Bo, with Flamethrower being strong against mechs.
Mechanicals may still be an issue.
The Opposing Team:
H/P Twilight Spider
Mini-Thor is sort of scary with all of that health and move Minefield. As with any pet that can lay mines, one of the first things that I do is try to figure out how I can mitigate the mine damage. Do I have an elemental to eat the weak damage? Do I have a cleanse? Do I have a block? Why yes, I do have a block. The battle just got a lot easier for me thanks to Sky-Bo. I just needed to make sure that I always brought in Sky-Bo to face Mini-Thor so that I could cast Decoy right after the mines went down. Then I could swap on the next round and the damage from the mines would be blocked.
This ended up being a 28 rounder with a lot of swapping so I think I’m going to cut the blow by blow short. Basically there was a ton of swapping. Whenever Mini-Thor came in I would swap to Sky-Bo to create the scenario described above. I was able to block two mine explosions this way. The Bronze Whelpling was a able to provide a lot of control throughout the battle and it was able to force the frog into some swaps due to fear of strong Lift-Off damage. My opponent fled in round 28 and I had not even used the Young Talbuk yet, which goes to show how much swapping, stunning and blocking that was going on.
