Today’s Team: Death Goose Hatchling
S/S Mongoose Pup (Gnaw, Survival, Dive)
P/S Chi-Chi (Fire Quills, Wild Magic, Feign Death)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)

It’s officially Death Adder Hatchling night on my meta. I’ve been seeing them left and right so I threw this team together to play the meta. Since Death Adders are gimped without their speed advantage I like the Mongoose against them. It’s a decent pet in its own right, albeit a bit fragile. The flyer is also there for its speed. I don’t use Chi-Chi much so I’m gonna play it just to change things up a bit. Since Chi-Chi is also fragile I’m including the Spirit Crab for its hp and shields. There’s no set order of play, but I do like to my save my Mongoose to clean up at the end.

Two of my three pets are fragile.

The Opposing Team:
P/S Wild Golden Hatchling
H/P Lil’ XT
P/S Scourged Whelpling
No Death Adders to punish.

The Battle:
120413BThis was a fast battle due to my opponent leaving early. It started off as Chi-Chi versus the Lightning Dragon. I know that the Lightning and Cyclone combo then a swap is coming so I don’t bother with Wild Magic. I use Fire Quills twice, both hit the third attack for some serious damage to the Golden Hatchling. My opponent thoughtlessly or unknowingly swapped to Lil’ XT. I hit three strong Quills on the swap. Ouch. I hit three strong Quills to take Lil’ XT to 0 hp. After the Failsafe it cast Tantrum. Another Quill finished it off. My opponent is down to a Scourged Whelpling and a one-third health dragon. I’ve only taken damage from the Lightning and some Cyclone connects. They ran.

    Hey Discodoggy
    I noticed on the forums you said you had some wins with the Silver DragonHawk.
    Why use that dragon in particular?

      I’m thinking it’s probably the S/S breed. If so, it’s cuz that breed has 357 speed, which is only topped by Mongoose, some cats, Aqua Strider, and fliers. If I wasn’t taking a break from leveling pets atm, I’d definitely jump on leveling that one. 357 speed for a dragonkin that has an attack that is strong against Aquatics makes a pretty mean addition to any Conflag team, IMO. :)

      • Discodoggy says:

        Yes, that’s exactly why, the 357 speed. There aren’t too many good pets faster than the Adder and being faster can really shut the Adder Down. It’s fun using it again, it was my go to FFF killer back in 5.1.

    Death Adders ruin a lot of strategies. It’s frustrating that blind stops attacks that would normally work against dodge and don’t seem to depend on hit/miss . . . mines, pheremones, cyclone, basically all aoe.

    Also, as I was typing this, I finally realized why that stupid Raven hit my Adder with Nocturnal strike even though Darkness wasn’t up and they were . . . blinded. ugh.

      They are pretty damn frustrating. I need to find some more fast pets to use against them. I’ve tried a 357 Wisp a few times and I wasn’t to impressed. The Wisp’s 50% blind is too unreliable for my tastes.
