Today’s Team: Boltmaster Arson
S/S Fiendish Imp (Burn, Immolation, Nether Gate)
P/P Frostwolf Ghostpup (Scratch, Haunting Song, Ghostly Bite)
S/S Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling (Breath, Thunderbolt, Decoy)

The Frostwolf Ghostpup is still my favorite pet as a counter to AoE damage thanks to Haunting Song. I paired it with the imp to provide some speed and a forced swap. I finished off the team with the MPD for the Decoy and AoE. I can’t really say that it’s the best AoE counter ever, but it has been winning a lot against non-AoE teams and it has had a few brilliant moments against the overlords. There’s still no great team that I’ve discovered to counter the meta; for now this team has been adequate enough when all the tough teams are out.

I’ve been starting with the imp to get Immolation going, then usually swapping to the MPD to drop the Decoy, then cast Thunderbolt. After that I’ve been bringing in the ghostpup for the heal. That’s been the plan, of course things don’t always go as planned. I’ve won eight in a row tonight with this team which is nice considering the amount of battles that I’ve been losing lately. It’s been bad.

I don’t like that the MPD’s main attack is weak against undead.

The Oppoosing Team:
S/S Wild Crimson Hatchling
P/S Kun-Lai Runt
H/P Menagerie Custodian

The Battle:
022515AThe battle started off almost exactly as I described it above. The imp cast Immolation then gated the dragon out. I brought in the MPD, it cast Thunderbolt then placed a Decoy. I brought the Frostfur Ghostpup in right as my opponent came in with the KLR. Rather than take a Ghostly Bite to the face the KLR swapped out for the Menagerie Custodian. I couldn’t resist the chance at the strong damage so I had cast Ghostly Bite even while thinking the KLR would swap, so I was stunned for a round. After it wore off I cast the heal then decided to stay in and take down the mech with my undead and whatever Immolation ticks were left. I guess my opponent thought that they were too far behind to come back because they fled. Make that nine in a row.

    I’ve had extremely good success with a Pupdance team against the AoE overlords, dropping the Blighthawk for Jade Crane Chick, and occasionally Ikky. Not perfect, but significantly more wins than losses at the moment against the usual suspects.
