That is my anti mab team. It is the most reliable way of defeating the mab combo.
I don't have Sylvanimora, and my true damage troops don't one shot. Getting amira up for 2 or three casts before a loop is a joke (in my experience and stat level), unless there are some empowered troops that fill up red/purple or some other method I don't understand.
I think the game experience is different once a player have a bunch of mythic troops and 5 star kindgoms. The issue in my opinion is the game PVP doesn't seem to separate those players from players with far less stats. I laugh sometimes. Teams have almost double my stats for effective health on 3 trophy. If my team is 6 or 7k, why can't I fight an 8k team for 3 trophy?
Just to be clear, I don't want to use mab. The most fun I have had with this game was using a dragon team before I had to start playing guild wars, which I can't take seriously because of the same mab teams and inflated stats exacerbated by sentinels. I had to stop using it because famine and mab were wasting my time in PVP.
I have trophies I need to get for my guild, and loosing a bunch of battles to the same team is not fun nor motivating.
I use mab because it is the only way I can quickly get through PVP to try and enjoy explore, where all my traits and troop levels actually reflect the strength I was able to gain.
