I have a decent lighnting team with zandalari toenibbler/clockwork gnome/yeti
- BUT as black claw is really a must have, you need a fast one because it is a no brainer for every average opponent to switch to another pet if you debuff him.
- Lightning + any beast is very situational to play, the toenibbbler has just 1250 hp, he will drop very fast, so it is not easy to play, you can play lightning - a turrent - black claw - flank (or primal cry, that is situational as well) if the toenibbler catches any dot it will be dead very soon due to lightning, so eventually you have to set up lightning later considering the opponents line up.
- Alternatively play with an fiendish imp in 5/15, immolation first, a turrent, black claw + xy
- 2nd alternative could be hoppling in 5/15, i hate this pet and it has a strong dot per so, but no real team synergy in opposite of fiendish imp/yeti
although serpents have also lightning and cyclone which can be devastating to the opponents team if you are lucky, i wouldn't recommend usng a serpent for lightning as it is a really weak pet in the late game where as the yeti using lightning+ ion cannon one shots every living pet and the imp is strong as well if played right
in general i wouldn't recommend playing such a team right now, direhorn runts are to strong, in nearly every team is an anub idol and as you play a rather fix rotation especially with the lightning setup, any switcher pet will screw you up. your only chance to avoid this is to open with fiendish imp and nether portal to annoy your opponent and to get a "free" immolation cast.
