Today’s Team: All Buzz Cons
H/H Fledgling Buzzard (Thrash, Adrenaline Rush, Lift)
S/S Fiendish Imp (Burn, Immolation, Nether Gate)
P/P Warbot (Missile, Minefield, Extra Plating)
Minefield swap teams have a simple strategy: put down your Minefield then swap the opponent into it. The Buzzard is here as an anti-Adder. There are better choices to deal with Adders but I enjoy using this bird. If I’m going to use it regularly I should probably upgrade it to an H/P or even a P/P Dragonbone Hatchling (which is the exact same pet except for the model). For now I have this H/H and it’s doing okay.
With a multiple attack from the Buzzard and a DoT from the Imp, Sandstorm or shields might give me trouble. I will need to use my Warbot responsibly.
The Opposing Team:
P/B Snowy Owl
P/S Rabid Nut Varmint 5000
Someone else’s fun team versus my somewhat competitive team. Not only that but my team counters it really well. Today I’m the bully.
My Warbot threw down the Minefield against the Varmint, who cast Extra Plating. I could have gone to Imp right away for the strong damage but I decided to pop Plating myself. If my damage is mitigated then so is yours. After my Plating wore off I swapped to the Imp. The Imp gated out the Varmint to the Snowy Owl. Thanks to the Minefield it immediately lost its flying bonus, ouch. The Minefield from a 325 power Warbot often does upwards of 700 damage. My Imp cast Immolation as my opponent brought in Stinker. I swapped to the Buzzard as Stinker cast Bleat. Bleat is a really nice AoE heal. I’ve used skunks a few times but moved on right away. I think I need to revisit them. What wasn’t really nice for my opponent was Thrash. It took out Stinker fast with strong attacks (I’m not sure why my opponent didn’t swap). I kept my Buzzard in to take out the Owl then my Imp easily finished off the Varmint.
