Good luck one and all!


for taking damage:

  • the first troop has a 25% skull damage reduction,
  • 2nd troop has 20% chance of dodging,
  • 3rd position pride hunter cant be targeted.

Other cool things about my team

  • sacred guardian will add 2 points to a stat on all my troops, and since he cannot be entangled will be able to always use his skull attack, he also gets a 25% skull match reduction.

  • Shadow hunter will get 1 blue on matchs and +1 magic from hunter

  • Pride hunter will give shadow hunter and himself +2 life, and will also get +2 magic from himself and marilith

  • Marilith gives all +2 attack, we will get red bonus on matchs, and +1 attack each time she takes damage.

  • So I will get bonus mana on blue+2, yellow, red

things about the other team:

  • Goblin king has a big weakness when playing my team - he has an extra 20 hp and regin which will attract the shadow hunter.
  • Goblin king’s regeneration, while making it a tiny bit harder, also helps shadow hunter to do more overall damage to the team.
  • overcoming the hobgoblin’s dodge is easy as most of my team is AEO or targeted.

the attack -

  • 1st - fill shadow hunter to attack goblin king
  • 2nd - fill sacred guardian and pride hunter
  • ---- pride hunter to stop the goblin attack (repeat until dead, move down, repeat)
  • ---- shadow hunter to target goblin king until he is dead
  • 3rd - fill merilith as green control and do random 6 AEO and gain attack and the gems to help fill the others
  • after goblin king is dead, then go on to hobgoblin (because of the dodge)
  • although the shaman provides green, leave him for last because he only heals 3 and he doesnt do damage.

Congratulations @kzintiwife. You’re into the semi-finals against @Zelfore.
