How will MoP teams do in the current meta?
Battle 1: Flaming Gobbo
Unborn Val’kyr, Treasure Goblin, Fel Flame
loss vs. Magical Crawdad, Singing Sunflower, Terrible Turnip
Ugg, I was about to go on a rant about broken day teams, but I will refrain. I will simply state the obvious: if you don’t have a direct counter to sunny day (aka broken day) teams you probably aren’t going to beat it. With my silly team I had even less of a chance. I fled after round twenty-something. Most of my opponent’s pets had full health and mine were being slowly whittled down. I’d much rather face Graves than a broken day team.
Battle 2: Assbutt Trees
Jademist Dancer, Spirit Crab, Snarly
vs. Blossoming Ancient, Xu-Fu, Lil’ KT
How awesome is that? I run a team designed to kill trees and I get a tree to kill. It was still sort of hard to take down. No, really, not broken. I was put to the test since a Xu-Fu crit took out Snarly before the croc could get off a second Blood in the Water. If it wasn’t for Lil’ KT being really bad I might not have won. It lost the head to head face off with my Spirit Crab badly. Go go super crab! If I remember correctly I had a trailer load of Jademist Dancer teams in MoP. If it’s going to be a sunny day parade then I’m afraid I’ll have to rain on it.
Battle 3: Death By Water
Jademist Dancer, Snarly, Eternal Strider
vs. Frostwolf Ghostpup, Grotesque, Fossilized Hatchling
Having two aquatics on a team is a risk, but that risk certainly paid off against a team of triple undead. I started with the Jademist Dancer and tried to go berserk with my aquatic damage. My opponent swapped a few times so by the end of the dancer’s life the Fossilized Hatchling was down to zero health and the Frostwolf Ghostpup was less than half. The Eternal Strider finished off the undead puppy and took a big chunk off of the Grotesque, then Snarly finished off the Grotesque. Snarly didn’t have a lot of health left so I guess you could say it was a close battle, although it didn’t feel that way.
Battle 4: Battlegropers
Jademist Dancer, Blighthawk, Snarly
vs. Graves, Abyssius, Clockwork Gnome
This was an odd battle. At first I was thinking that I would have to wait to cast Cyclone until Grave Destruction was used, but Abyssius started instead of everyone’s favorite undead scapegoat Graves. I figured that my Cyclone was safe if Volcano went down since Graves wouldn’t want to clear his own team’s object. Abyssius stayed in as I brought my dancer in to get the clonedance going. Rain Dance was cast and the damage started to add up. Things were going well for me already when Consume Corpse missed. It’s probably the cyclone (which is my personal favorite scapegoat) that caused the glitch. Damn, I was probably going to win anyways but now my “W” is tarnished. Stupid cyclone. That’s it for today, once again MoP teams did okay.
