As soon as I found out what the Infernal King’s spell was, I knew I wanted to use him. Took me 58 event keys to finally draw him, but now he’s fully leveled and I spent some time working on a good team for him. Here’s what I came up with:
My first notion was to pair him with someone who could power him or whom he could power, and the Alchemist got the bill perfectly since he transforms Choice–>Yellow, and the King can power him by changing Brown–>Red. I also considered Sheggra (imagine pairing the Brown–>Red with the extra skulls from Green–>Skulls!) but had a hard time finding other troops to make that strategy really tight. Also considered other Brown/Red troops like Ragnagordand and Jarl, but again thought that might be too risky.
I also knew I didn’t care if I had a green troop, since I wanted maximum possibilities for skull creation, so I focused on other troops. I considered some Blue/Red troops like the Anointed, but he would actually have dampened Infernal King’s spell so I passed. I ended up with Serpent for pure Red creation to power Alchemist (and with luck, Valkyrie), and Valkyrie to power Serpent and farm souls.
I’ve used it a few times and it actually does a pretty good job of controlling the board, but it’s a bit slow to get rolling. That’s one reason Serpent is handy: Agile can buy time with a lucky dodge.
Thoughts or criticisms? Anyone else have a favorite team with the immortal daemon king? Anyone else decide to go with one of those other Brown/Red troops I passed over? Let me here from you!
