Here is why my team wins:
Mufasha is banking on Stone Giant absorbing the blows with its Stoneskin, but his team simply isn’t strong enough. Here’s how it will go down: Behemoth tanks early damage while Bone Dragon & Wight get filled. Once they’re filled, Wight steals Stone Giants Life, Bone Dragon steals ALL its armor, then BD makes a ton of skull matches and the incredibly weakened Stone Giant gets one-shotted. It’s literally that simple. With the Lifesteal + Armor steal combo, Bone Dragon is going to fill the entire board with skulls and do crazy damage. Stone Giant stands no chance, with or without Stoneskin. And after that his team falls apart. Meanwhile think about my Bone Dragon: It Freezes when its attacked. It steals Armor from its spell. Then it has Priestess giving it Armor AND Barrier. It’s going to be an unstoppable killing machine.
And here’s the flip-side to Mufasha’s team:
Mufasha’s team simply doesn’t have enough offense to be effective. Stone Giant & Warlock both do pretty paltry damage with their skills (and SG’s is a random target making it pretty worthless). Bone Dragon is going to be insanely tanky, as will Wight, and Priestess will be giving them Barrier, making all that hard work filling up single-target spells totally worthless. Yes, Sunweaver helps buff Stone Giant’s damage, but the team isn’t built to generate skulls so it will do a incredibly poor job on offense. Once SG falls his only strong offense is Sunweaver in the back doing skull-based damage, which it can’t generate matches for. He’s simply trying to bank on the fact that SG has Stoneskin and my team does skull damage, but his team is way too weak to overcome the combo of Life and Armor stealing.
Lastly, yes, Warlock denies Purples but it’s really easy to get around if you don’t play in a totally mindless way. Wight creates Purples, so simply don’t use Wight’s spell at a really dumb time when Warlock can steal them. Either Warlock is held back waiting for Wight to be used, in which case Warlock is totally worthless and his team is limited to only Stone Giant for offense, or he uses Warlock’s spell and then I use Wight right after to create way more Purples than Warlock consumed. Wight is actually a counter to Warlock, not the other way around.
