Not me. It looks competent, but not especially tough - maybe I'm missing something?

Of course, the Crawdad can go for miles, but what's the strategy? Idol tanks, and use Wish to heal him?

Yep constant healing. The fast Adder is there for utility and damage. For all 3 enemy pets you need a specific counter pet/team, makes it a challenge to build a solid counter team. You'd be surprised how relative well it does against darkness teams, and consume corps too. My opponent made very smart decisions, all the time. :)

You got off light. LOL. You didn't have to contend with a Blossoming Ancient + Crawdad tag team. Those truly last forever.

Depends on your definition of tough. It's not hard hitting but they're hard to kill. There was a time people would run with a Blossoming Ancient and a Crawdad. The strat was to wait out your opponent. :roll: 30 minutes in and you realize you've only taken like 50HP from the stupid thing is generally enough to make anyone give up.

Just off the top of my head, I'd run a Teroclaw clonedance team against the one you mentioned.

Funny you say that, I did won with exact that team but it was a long and close battle. Fortunately crawdad had snap instead of surge. :)

:D Nice to meet you! I'm sure you beat me several times (I recognize your pet names). My wicked soul didn't stand a chance. I do remember winning one or two. Looks like people start to play copycat, however make the wrong choices.

Let me ask my friend: what team gives you trouble? :mrgreen:

HA wont tell you!
Tbh its not a team per se but a player - which i call my ARCH NEMESIS - his team (you will surly laugh about it) was simple: Imp, Zeppelin and an Unborn Valkyr and he drove me crazy cause he seem to be able to predict my every move.
So really it comes down to the player and the knowledge he has.

What I really dont like are straight simple darkness team with three times darkness and nocturnal strike. I dont see where there is any fun.

OH and to be sure my team is named Joshua (Wargames) and Mess with [the] best, die like [the] rest (Hackers) and my crab is called Long Game John (after Long John Silver)

I'm 2-4 against this guy and it's driving me crazy.

Ghastly Kid (w/ethereal)
Teroclaw Hatchling
Hogs (w/ headbutt)

Any suggestions?
Darkness team?

One of my wins was fortunate with an Arcane Storm/Mana Surge team.
Burnt him down fast enough where consume wasn't enough and the storm backline damage put a hurting on the Teroclaw.

I have to check my rematch notes some more, but try and tinker with my teams:

Interesting darkness teams (with a twist) are Nightshade/Bones/Ruby, or Frostfur/Bones/Wicked (agony), or Nightshade/Bones/Kid.

(by the way, in general I'm still liking Autumn Breeze for a team with Vengeful and Teroclaw) ;)

DAH for the Hogs, Magical Crawdad with Surge to soak the Kid and kill the Teroclaw and a 3rd pet of you choosing.

The DAH (or Rose Taipan) is probably the one and only top-tier pet I never really got interested in using.
I hate the guessing game of weather or not my opponent is gonna swap out their pet after I poison it.
I'll give it a shot though!
