Today’s Team: Backwoods Gourmet
S/S Death Adder Hatchling (Poison Fang, Puncture Wound, Blinding Poison)
P/S Highlands Turkey (Peck, Squawk, Food Coma)
S/S Mongoose Pup (Gnaw, Survival, Dive)
Apparently I eat mongoose and snake for Thanksgiving.

This team is fast. The plan here is to use all of my fast pets to control the flow of the battle. How? By being able to blind or use Food Coma to gain some extra attacks. My speed will also earn me an extra attack from Gnaw and allow me to Dive before the big hits come. I’m glad my Mongoose Pup is seeing more action these past few days, it’s one of my favorite pets.

Since my entire team is based on speed any type of pet that has a Surge can really shut me down. I have a lot of beast attacks and an aquatic pet so flyers will give me trouble.

The Opposing Team:
P/B Kun-Lai Runt
H/H Netherspace Abyssal
P/P Sunreaver Micro-Sentry

The Battle:
No flyers, no Surges, what a relief. I started with the Adder, I’m becoming as predictable as an Unborn Val’kyr user. The opposing pet was the Micro-Sentry so you would think I was at a disadvantage due to the family types. Wrong. The Adder is great against mechs due to Poison ticks doing elemental damage. I started off with Poison Fang but had to eat a Call Lightning. No biggie, next I used Blinding Poison which caused both rounds of Haywire to miss. After blowing its CDs all the Micro-Sentry had left was Laser which only does 310 damage. The Adder ended up surviving the one on one match-up with 293 hp. Not bad for a beast against a mech.

We then went though a few rounds of Food Coma, swapping, blinding and poisoning until it settled down as the Runt versus my Mongoose. Sure, I’ll take that match-up. My Mongoose Gnawed while the Runt began its Rampage. The second Rampage missed, reminding me that the dice gods have been on my side these last few days. The Mongoose finished off the Runt and was almost able to solo the Abyssal thanks in part to Dive hitting after avoiding the Meteor Strike and also to Survival prolonging its life. The Turkey came in to finish off the battle with a Coma and two Pecks. Overall it was an easy battle.
