Hello lovely fellow players .
For the past days i’ve noticed alot of Gobtruffle teams in PVP, and somehow they don’t feel very impressive to me to be perfectly honest. I have to note that i’m using the Cedric/Egg thief meta team in PVP mostly and they seem to destroy those teams so far…
But it did get me thinking about a Gobtruffle team of my own…
"How hard can i spam disease & Poison to all enemies?"
As stated in the title, this is a theory-craft (mostly because i miss some essential troops for this build).
This way i can work towards a team that seems alot of fun to me in the (near) future.
HERO (Plaguelord) /w Mountain Crusher
You’re hero is somewhat tanky by nature, and mountain crusher is without a doubt one of the best mana-generating weapons (if not the best in particular). But it’s the class that gives it it’s niche.
1st talent: Inflict stun when taking skull damage
2nd talent: Gain 2 Magic if using a Hammer
3rd talent: Disease a random enemy on 4 or 5 Gem matches
4th talen: Start battles with 50% Mana
5th Talent: Gain a Barrier when matching Brown Gems
6th talent: Gain bonus Brown Mana from Brown Gem matches
7th talent: Immune to Stun, Poison, Disease, Death Mark and Devour
The talents are not set in stone… I realise that i chose offensive talents over defensive talents most of the time. And the only things that give somewhat of a bulk are the 5th and 7th talent wich are higher level class talents…
Explode brown gems (lesser variant of the mountain crusher) while poisoning and diseasing 2 enemies
God what do i need to say about this? This is without a doubt the “mascot” of this team. Tho it might be squishy, the acceptable mana cost for exploding the board for mana, and inducing both statusses to enemies is godly. Wether Plague Rat is squichy or not, firing it off only once comes with all the benefits to make up for that.
And our next troop will make very very very good use of that
Here he is! The one that made me come up with the team so far. Again; this is a theorycraft for fun, i’m not expecting this to be meta in any way possible, it’s a synergized team that i would like to use later on for my own pleasure.
This troop pretty much speaks for itself; It deals damage to all enemies, and creates Green & Brown gems in the process boosted by diseased & poisoned enemies, and to top it off, even if it misfires… it’s a goblin! So it even get’s an extra turn(!!)
The brown an green mana it generates goes directly into the hero and the Plaguerat. And with plaguerat’s mana cost being acceptable, all excess green mana pours right back into Gobtruffle.
It’s 3rd trait is a given, disease an enemy on any 4- or 5-match
Again a troop that get’s boosted by every poisoned and diseased enemy when damaging the entire opposite team and applying both effects on any enemy that doesn’t have them already. Being a purple troop it is not mana blocked by the others and get’s filled up with every explosion the first 2 troops create.
Magnus is in last place since Plague Rat is to squichy and Gobtruffle to essential.
For the time being i don’t own Gobtruffle and Magnus yet, but on paper the potential is obvious. How this team works in realtime is still unknown for me. If anyone is feeling gimmicky and wants to give this team a try, please do! I would very much appreciate any type of feedback regarding this build.
And as always…
Thanks to all the beautiful people taking the time to reading/trying this
