Today’s Team: Jaguero Intensified
H/S Tiny Twister (Wild Winds, Bash, Call Ligntning)
P/P Sen’Jin Fetish (Flame Breath, Wild Magic, Sear Magic)
P/P Baby Ape (Smash, Clobber, Banana Barrage)
I’m loving these stun moves on the 289 and 260 speed pets. Especially when there’s some lightning, DoTs and field effects. The extra turn gained can add up to a significant amount of damage. The Sen’Jin Fetish works well on this team due to Flame Breath and Wild Magic working so well with lightning and also because of Sear Magic being able to somewhat counter Unborn Val’kyrs. The ape will hopefully be able to drop some bananas in lightning for a lot of extra damage.
With two stuns I need to keep track of Resilience so that I don’t try to pull off an impossible stun.
The Opposing Team:
B/B Unborn Val’kyr
P/S Death Adder Hatchling
S/S Silky Moth
Oh, what a lovely tea party!
I was feeling proud to beat another tough combo when I realized it wasn’t so much my skill that won, it was more of my opponent not knowing how to deal with a Sen’Jin Fetish. What would be the optimal opening for me? It would be:
Blinding Poison/Sear Magic
Which is exactly how the battle started. The Unborn Val’kyr was then on fire and taking extra damage while the snake didn’t get its second turn of protection from the blind. The Sen’Jin Fetish took out the DAH with Flame Breath and Wild Magic. My opponent really should have either blinded again on the mask’s undead round or swapped in order to gain the benefit of the two round blind later, but they let the snake die instead. So far, so good. I’m ahead but by no means safe. The valk was brought in as I brought in my Tiny Twister. I Bashed, my opponent swapped to the moth which took a Call Lightning to the face. The next round saw Moth Dust hit (but not proc sleep) and Wild Winds. Now I was starting to feel safer. I decided to swap to the ape in order to let my Bash and Call Lightning recharge. The rest of the battle played out pretty straightforward, the Baby Ape and Twister were able to finish the battle out, although the Shadow Shock plus lightning brought my ape a lot closer to death than I would have preferred on the Unborn Val’kyr’s undead round.
