Today’s Team: Blizzy McSurgester
P/P Rotten Little Helper (Ice Lance, Booby-Trapped Presents, Call Blizzard)
B/B Tiny Snowman (Magic Hat, Call Blizzard, Deep Freeze)
H/P Tundra Penguin (Surge, Slippery Ice, Ice Lance)
Tonight I was bored of the same old pets and teams when I came across my Rotten Little Helper team from Christmas (12/25/13). I ran that team for a few games but decided that two humanoids is too risky in this Val’kyr infested meta so I switched to the Tundra Penguin. I ended up getting most of my ten Tuesday wins with this team. This is a team that utilizes the weather Blizzard. Both Ice Lance and Deep Freeze benefit from the weather Blizzard. Blizzard gives Ice Lance a bonus secondary attack and Deep Freeze is an automatic stun if it hits. Surge can help against fast pets, Slippery Ice might cause a few misses but the real icing on the cake is Booby-Trapped Presents which is another version of Minefield. The strategy is to throw down the presents, put up Blizzard then use the moves that benefit from the weather.
Critters might be a problem with all of this elemental damage along with their racial ignoring the stun. This is a very slow team. Since I’ve been running it so much tonight I might start to see some counters.
The Opposing Team:
P/S Pandaren Fire Spirit
H/P Ruby Droplet
I was concerned about the two elementals ignoring the weather but then I realized that Slippery Ice makes pets chilled so the elementals will still get stunned and hit with a double Ice Lance. I started with the Rotten Little Helper and Booby-Trapped Presents then I swapped right away to the Tundra Penguin. It was able to take out the Ruby Droplet before the Booby-Trapped Presents expired with Slippery Ice and Ice Lances. The Booby-Trapped presents crit the Pandaren Fire Spirit when it came in. It used Flamethrower and Conflagrate but surprisingly the Tundra Penguin was able to take out this elemental too. Then it died to a Flamethrower tick. Zao was easy enough after that since I was able to stun the beast with Deep Freeze before it was able to cast Wish.
