It’s time for penance. I’ve been running an awful amount of FoA teams; I’d have to do an immense amount of topless battles to make up for the number of times a Spirit Beam has waylaid an unsuspecting fun pet hanging out on the back line. I’m only planning on doing three or four…
Battle 1: Union Of The Blight
Infected Squirrel, Mechanical Scorpid, Alpine Foxling
vs. Restless Shadeling, Bone Serpent, Ghastly Kid
After just beating an idol in a sandstorm my team had some momentum. Then I saw three undead… and smiled. Both the Blighted Squirrel and of course the fox have strong critter attacks. Thanks to a really bad swap by my opponent that left the Bone Serpent to bleed to death on the back line my squirrel almost went two for one, taking out the serpent and bringing the goat to 0 health. After getting blinded the Restless Shadeling left. I’ve been experimenting with different breeds of fox, this team is using the P/B that Tekulve suggested for his POTM entry. So far, so good.
Battle 2: Black Bones F
Mechanical Scorpid, Macabre Marionette, Alpine Foxling
vs. Fragment Of Anger, Stunted Direhorn, Zomstrok
Variety be damned; Black Claw is just too much fun. Well, I thought it might be until the FoA completely ripped me apart. I made a horrible decision in the beginning by not taking the FoA down with the fox. I should know better. Instead I tried too hard to force the Black Claw and Bone Barrage combo. The puppet took high damage on the swap then got stunned, then took high damage on the stunned round, bye bye health, hello immortal round. I was too far gone at that point to make a comeback. Plus direhorns have been pounding me lately. This makes direhorns 6-2 against me since I started keeping records. My rabbits are in therapy at this very moment. Normally I would go to a high powered team for some revenge, yet right now my penance prohibits it. And it’s time for dinner.
Battle 3: Jaguero Intensified
Sen’Jin Fetish, Baby Ape, Tiny Twister
vs. Tainted Waveling, Fel Flame, Thundering Serpent Hatchling
It appears that I’ve landed at some sort of topless party! With two lightning pets I was in DoT heaven with my fetish. I could have also been in heaven with my ape, but the 50% hit rate of Banana Barrage wasn’t kind to me. If I remember correctly it wasn’t always a 50% move. Despite the missing bananas it was a fairly easy victory. Both of my stuns were faster than the dragon and the flame so my opponent missed a number of turns. Post meal has left me with few words, so I’ll call it a night.
On a different note, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in keeping track of the pet frequencies in your meta. I’ve been doing it with google sheets for about the last week and I realized that it would be easy for others to add data as well. It wouldn’t be hard for me to set up. This was actually chibimage’s idea long ago when she found out I was keeping a spreadsheet. I should warn you though, it gets tedious after a while. I’ll make a page with instructions later; right now I’m just throwing it out there to see if anyone’s interested.
