Today’s Team: Brony Express
S/S Fiendish Imp (Burn, Immolation, Nether Gate)
P/P Sen’Jin Fetish (Flame Breath, Wild Magic, Sear Magic)
H/P Vengeful Porcupette (Powerball, Spirit Spikes, Flank)
I’m late to another party. This party being the Vengeful Porcupette party. After hearing respected and experienced battlers talk it up for so long I gave it another chance. This is probably the third or fourth time I’ve tried it. Every other time I’ve been like “yeah, that’s okay” but after using it yesterday and today I’m saying “where have you been all of my life”. It’s a fun pet to use and it can be wildly successful. I’m sure I’ll have more to say in the future but right now my fingers are rope burned* so typing is difficult. You know the drill, the imp and mask are a dynamic duo, the Vengeful Porcupette brings its own brand of butt whooping. Anything called Spirit Spikes has got to be cool.
Even with Wild Magic a well played sandstorm idol could shut me down. Wait, are idols ever well played?
The Opposing Team:
P/B Droplet Of Y’Shaarj
H/B Singing Sunflower
P/B Spawn Of G’Nathus
I force swapped out the Spawn Of G’Nathus and in came the Droplet Of Y’Shaarj. I expected an Acid Rain/ Dreadful Breath combo but instead I got hit with a CoD. Dang. I quickly back lined the imp and brought out the Sen’Jin Fetish. The mask killed the elemental but got dropped to 0 hp (somehow Swallow You Whole hit for double when I wasn’t expecting it to). The CoD did around 900 damage to the imp on the back line. Spawn Of G’Nathus came out to take a Flame Breath from the mask. It was force swapped again, this time being replaced by the annoying flower. Not to worry, the imp can do really well against some sunlight teams if it can get Immolation going then get to the back. That’s exactly what I did so the imp was gaining around 100 hp per round thanks to Immolation and the humanoid racial. The Vengeful Porcupette took a Solar Beam on the swap then cast Powerball to get a speed advantage. It hit the flower hard enough with Flanks so that when my opponent surprised me with an early second Solar Beam kill shot it wasn’t a game changer. The imp was able to clean up the two remaining low health pets thanks to its swap and its speed.
*I got the rope burns from running in my first Spartan Race today. Climbing the rope was easy enough, but sliding down… very bad idea. Besides that the race was incredibly fun, I think I’ve found a new hobby.
