The Quick Three
This needs to be quick!
Battle 1: Cabin Stabbin
Fiendish Imp, Sen’Jin Fetish, Alterac Brew Pup
vs. Direhorn Runt, Lil’ Ragnaros, Bronze Whelpling
I’ve been playing with the Alterac Brew Pup yet I still don’t have a great team for it. This team was able to beat Kovokination earlier, which is no easy task. This battle resulted in a win but it was very close, like the imp had less than 50 health at the end close. I got off one heal with the ABP but was unable to use Avalanche. Lil’ Ragnaros’ trap was wasted on a fetish with resilience from Horn Attack. I’ve been seeing a lot of rag teams with another stun move on the same team; I’ve survived the stun a few times thanks to resilience.
Battle 2: Murkist Regime
Murkalot, Royal Peacock, Blackfuse Bombling
vs. Death Adder Hatchling, Death Adder Hatchling, Death Adder Hatchling
I was testing out Murkalot teams to see how they fare against the AoE overlord teams of the current meta. I know, Righteous Inspiration is grossly overpowered, but so are these even split AoE moves. Well, maybe not as bad as RI. In creating this team I was too greedy; Murkalot and the BFB work well enough together, I didn’t need the Arcane Storm to help out Falling Murkalot. It didn’t matter much in this case. With the BFB as a hard counter and the Royal Peacock as a soft counter these three snakes were easy enough to deal with.
Battle 3: Holy Lashers
Lost Of Lordaeron, Lifelike Mechanical Toad, Huge Toad
vs. Chrominius, Nordrassil Wisp, Wild Golden Hatchling
I tried to keep it real by using a less successful team. I expected it to end like the skit “when keeping it real goes wrong” from the Chapelle Show. Instead, my opponent fled early after making a bad swap. I asked for quick, I got really quick.
