How Is Early Bird Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out massive amounts of damage. It is commonly used as an opening attack by the fastest Axie on the team.

It’s especially useful against Beasts, Mechs, and Bugs because of their natural disadvantage against Birds. 

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Early Bird?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. Birds are the fastest class of Axies in the game, which is why the other classes will not typically have this card in their arsenal.
