Today’s Team: Almost Six Thousand
H/H Robo-Chick (Peck, Overtune, Wind-Up)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)
H/H Magical Crawdad (Snap, Shell Shield, Wish)
That’s almost 6000 hp with the mech racial.
With all the Kovoks, Val’kyrs and Death Adders running around I was curious to see how a super high hp team might do. I don’t have high hopes but you never know until you try. The Robo-Chick may not be the best choice but I wanted some speed (from Overtune) so I’m not entirely susceptible to CC. Mostly I just want to try something new. The plan is to simply outlast the opponent with my high hp, shields and Wish.
Where do I start? I’m slow at 195, 227, and 260 speed which means that I can be CC’d for two rounds by a lot of moves. With Wish I need to be careful to make sure I have enough hp to survive a swap. There’s nothing more pathetic than a pet who dies on the turn it’s going to receive it’s Wish. I’m also somewhat of a Crawdad noob.
The Opposing Team:
S/S Fiendish Imp
This battle once again shows the power of the Warbot, which many people just don’t understand. I lost this one, but I have the satisfaction of taking credit for making the Imp/Warbot combo popular on my meta. If you destroy enough people with something they’re bound to start using it for themselves. The Imp had a lot of control this battle due to Nether Gate, but the Warbot was the true hero of my opponent’s team. I just couldn’t take it down fast enough. Since it was faster than my Crab and Crawdad it got four turns out of its Extra Plating when used against these pets.
I started with the Crab to hopefully get a root down when the Imp swapped in, but my opponent decided to keep the Warbot in. It applied Extra Plating, I brought in the Crawdad so I could get a Wish off then eat the mines and get healed. I should have stuck to that plan, but for some reason I decided to go head to head versus the Warbot. Bad plan. By the time I had taken out the Warbot and the Imp I was left with a half health Robo-Chick to face a full health Blighthawk. The Blighthawk easily came out on top. Studid Warbot on other people’s teams! I may give this high hp team another try.
