Search for counter

Postby Tratatemium » April 28th, 2017, 4:35 am

Hello! This is the team I'm facing a lot on my realm:
Ghastly Kid, h/h, Hoof, Consume Magic, Haunt
Fiendish Imp, s/s, Burn, Immolation, Nether Gate
Teroclaw Hatchling, h/p, Claw, Dodge, Nature's Ward

My counter team is:
Emperor Crab, p/p, Surge, Healing Wave, Shell Shield
Wicked Soul, s/s, Shadow Shock, Haunting Song, Haunt
Crusher, p/s, Acid Touch, Shell Armor, Body Slam

Emperror Crab can ignore Haunt, good vs Teroclaw and can block Immolation ticks with Shell Shield. Wicked Soul can haunt Imp or Teroclaw if Imp will gate the crab out. Crusher is very strong vs Teroclaw: he has an aquatic DoT plus when TC uses Dodge, he can go Shell Armor followed by Body Slam and not waste a turn.
Still, I'm thinking Wicked Soul is not the best option here, baecause it's countered so hard by Ghastly Kid. Shimmering Aquafly maybe?

What are your ideas about counter team?

The healing factor is what makes this team so strong.
Cut that in half.

S/S Frostfur Rat
P/S Northern Hawk Owl
H/H Bone Serpent

Or, albeit not as fun, Emperor Crab x3 would probably make him flee at the start of the battle.

While not a counter per say, I find it fun to use cleansing abilities against Haunt teams.

In particular, the Fiendish Imp has baited many Haunts - most people expect it to run Burn/Immolation/Nether Gate; but you can actually go Sear Magic/Flamethrower/Nether Gate.

Not as durable (due to lower of backline healing by mission on Immolation) but it does get most Wicked Souls and Ghastly Kids by surprise, resulting in an instant kill :)
