Today’s Team: Jadedissed
S/S Jademist Dancer (Jade Claw, Rain Dance, Geyser)
H/S Scalded Basilisk Hatchling (Crystal Prison, Feign Death, Geyser)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)

This isn’t the most brilliantly synergistic team ever. It’s more about playing two pets I really like. The Spirit Crab is one of the strongest pets in the game and the Basilisk is my favorite PvP pet. Both of those pets rely on Beast attacks which are weak against Flyers. The Jademist Dancer has Jade Claw which is strong against Flyers so it’s there to take out those annoyingly fast birds when it has to.

As far as a general strategy goes I’ll put a Geyser down and then Rain Dance for the 50% chance to crit. The Spirit Crab is a very straightforward pet: put up your shields and do damage. The Basilisk is a risky pet to use because if it goes against a faster pet it’s worthless. To can’t use Prison effectively and you can’t hit a third Thrash. At 305 speed the Basilisk isn’t that fast, that’s why it’s risky.

It doesn’t sound great, but sometimes you just want to have some fun with some pets that you like.

I don’t have a good overall strategy here. It’s just a few good pets with a little bit of coverage synergy.

The Opposing Team:
P/S Flamering Moth
S/B Clockwork Gnome
P/P Spirebound Crab

The Battle:
092713BIf I’m faster than all the opposing pets then I’ll start with my Basilisk and get some free shots but I’m not faster than the Moth. Basilisk versus Moth well end bad for me. Instead I decide to start with the Jademist Dancer and my opponent starts with the Crab. I Geyser and the Spirebound Whirlpools. I get Surged before I use Rain Dance and decide to go to my own Crab rather than get pounded by more Surges.

092713AThen the power of the Crab took over. Along with the help from Geyser the Crab took out the Spirebound Crab fairly easily. Then the Gnome came in to take a beating from Snaps and a Whirlpool, it only had around 300 hp by the time the Crab died. In comes my Basilisk to Prison and Thrash to bring the Gnome to 0 hp then one more Thrash to finish it off. Now there’s only this Moth to deal with. I Feigned the Moth Dust and in comes the Dancer. This is exctly why I brought it, for some Flyer killing. I put a Geyser Down and spammed Jade Claw for the win.

This wasn’t the most interesting battle, but its nice to see the coverage plan work out. I’m sure I can come up with a more interesting team for my Jademist Dancer.
