Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!
For our latest event, I played my Superwoman Swarm team. I loved this team and it was tons of fun to play!
You can find the team build here, on DiceMastersDB.
My main goal with this team is to sneak attack with a pumped up Superwoman, while using Spider-Man to absorb all the blockers. I thought the best way to churn and ramp for Superwoman would be with the Swarm mechanic so I chose Kobold and Goblin. I love using Professor X and Blue-Eyes, though I don't think this team needs both. Blue-Eyes helped me a few times, but I could easily have gotten by without him. Professor X with Swarm is super good for my play style. I never bought my Kryptonite, but I put it on the team just in case someone got an Oracle or Dwarf Wizard out against me. Anger Issues is my tool for pumping Superwoman's attack and Polymorph is good for additional sneak attacks or to get a trouble character out of my way.
My first round was against a younger player that's been trying to improve her Spider-Man team. Her addition of Oracle was a great choice as it slowed me down a little. I thought about buying Kryptonite, but I decided to tough it out. The game was pretty close and she did really well, but Superwoman was able to get though for a large amount of damage and then I finished her off later. Spider-Man was a star and worked really well with Superwoman. We had a great match and it was really fun. My opponent went on to claim third, just narrowly missing second place.
Record after Round One: 1-0-0
My second round opponent was trying something different with his team - kind of an experiment. Based on his results, don't build a team of eight characters like these and one die each. He ran into loads of trouble, like needing additional Joker and Loki dice. If he would have had additional dice, I probably would not have beaten him. I hope he continues to adjust his 'Big Booty Squad' team because I look forward to playing against it in the future. He targeted my Swarm characters with Joker and Loki and he never used my Blue-Eyes to KO them so he could reroll them and choose a different target. I don't think he realized that Superwoman was the major threat on my team and not the Swarm characters. Superwoman and Spider-Man did their jobs once again and pulled out another win for Superwoman Swarm.
Record after Round Two: 2-0-0
My round three opponent is another player that's building up their competitive skill and she's doing a good job of it. I'm very proud of her as well as our other players for all the work they've done and all the progress they've made in improving their teams and their skill as players. She has taken on the daunting task of trying to learn how to play Vicious Struggle and she's doing better with it each passing week. She did really well against my team and this game was also very close. I was able to race against the Vicious Struggles and timed my attacks so that I didn't kill myself in the process. My last turn, I was able to ensure my victory by using Anger Issues to increase Superwoman's attack just enough to KO my opponent.
Record after Round Three: 3-0-0
Final Standing: 1st
This team was such a great casual team to play, and it was so much fun to play with! The only thing I think I would change is Blue-Eyes, but I'm not sure what I would put in his place. I've thought about Ultraman since I have Kryptonite on the team which would give me an alternate win condition. But other than that, I wouldn't change anything else. I feel like this team also gave some of my opponents a chance to get their combos going unlike some of the faster, meta teams. I love making new teams with interesting or unique styles. This team was definitely fun and different from what I'm used to playing. Multiple attacks were definitely better than trying to go for the one turn KO.
What are some changes you'd make without changing the spirit of the team?
