Strategy Chat: The Legendary Hydra!
Hello and welcome to another Splinterchat with LordTimoty –
Today, I need to talk to you about one of the most awesome cards I didn’t even know existed a few days back.
I was casually playing some ranked battles – and then, BAM! Out of no where I came up against this card and I instantly went to the market to find it.
(In truth, it took a while, I didn’t think to check out Neutral straight away. I had vs’ed it in an Earth team, so I got stuck there for a while).
OK – so let’s have a closer look at the card. I play in the Silver League, so specifically, I’ll focus on the card being Level 2.
So what makes it so darn attractive?
So – what is it’s perfect pair?
Let’s take a look at a 15 mana battle –
I used the Merdaali Guardian, alongside the Hydra, using the final mana on the Hardy Stonefish.
There were a couple of things going into this strategy. Firstly, I used Kelya Frendal because he gave my cards +1 armour. It borrows from the idea I spoke about with Mycella or Venari – it’s all about getting him that additional hit. The Hardy Stonefish then was there as a blocker. If my opponent did play a sneak card, I wanted him to spend a couple of hits getting through my defense – while I worked on knocking down his tank.
Thanks for joining me today – and I can honestly say, I hope I don’t end up versing too many hydras in the future!
