When You Cry
S/S Alpine Foxling (Flurry, Crouch, Dazzling Dance)
H/P Zomstrok (Infected Claw, Rot/Shell Shield, Carpnado)
H/P Trunks (Smash, Ethereal, Avalanche)

I was getting pounded pretty hard by the recent Graves/FoA/Bone Serpent/MPD revival, plus there was a Teroclaw hatchling running around so I brought out the S/S Alpine Foxling. The plan is pretty simple: start with the fox, give undead pets a big dose of Flurry, then bring in Zomstrok and Trunks at the end for some big damage Avalanche and Carpnado. I suppose since I use Shell Shield so infrequently that Rot is the better choice, but I still remember Shell Shield being good so I have trouble not taking it. For these battles I inadvertently had Rot when I started so I stuck with it.

win vs. Graves, Fragment Of Anger, MPD
A close win against an incredibly tough team. Nice work!

win vs. Unborn Val’kyr, Unborn Val’kyr, Unborn Val’kyr
Three valks = fox food.

win vs. Fel Pup, Fragment Of Anger, Ghastly Rat
This was surprisingly difficult.

loss vs. Graves, Fragment Of Anger, MPD
This time my opponent didn’t start with the MPD, which turned out to be a great call. I got beaten badly.

Bonus Battle
23:35 – Rick Frostly
Graves, Ghastly Kid, Frostwolf Ghostpup
win vs. Graves, Fragment Of Anger, MPD

I couldn’t accept the last loss gracefully and went straight to a revenge team. I got revenge, which is a dish best served while watching your opponent’s three powerful pets run away.

    I confess that I watched this and the last with an unworthy smirk. đŸ˜›

    You have often said something like “people say there are lots of Graves around, but I’m not seeing them” or “my meta is quiet”. I kept wondering how I could get into a server group like that, when I was seeing 50%-80% Graves / triple Undead / Healing teams from my opponents.

    Nice work winning with Done Did Kid. That’s a great team, but has its work cut out against a Graves And The Evil Undead combo.
