How Is Acrobatic Used?

This card is used mainly to outspeed faster Axies and catch opponents off-guard when the turn order suddenly shifts in your favor. 

It’s especially useful against Aquas and Birds, because not only are they faster than Beasts, they are also the natural counters that deal tons of damage against the Beast class.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Acrobatic?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Beast Axies. I’ve also seen a few builds that put it on Aqua Axies to supplement their lacking damage against the tankier classes, while still retaining the speed buff.

I’ve also seen players use Acrobatic to counter faster Dusks and Mystic Rush from Dusk Terminators.

Pros and Cons of the Acrobatic Card


  • deals decent damage and gives good shields
  • grants the user a stack of Speed+


  • deals relatively low damage when compared to other Beast cards
