Card Spotlight: Clam Slash

In this article, I’ll be putting the spotlight on the Aqua card, “Clam Slash.”

Clam Slash

As of October 2021, this card has 110 base damage, 40 shields, and costs 1 energy. It also grants the user Attack+ if they attack a Beast, Bug, or Mech target.

How Is It Used?

Clam Slash is a high-damage Aquatic horn card. It’s mainly used for applying Attack+ on the user so its next attack deals 20% more damage.

Star Shuriken

It’s also a good substitute card if you don’t have Star Shuriken or Hero’s Bane in terms of damage. Other players also use this card defensively because of its high shields.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use It?

Most of the Axies I encounter that use this card are Aquas, but it may be possible for other classes to use it, especially if they deal reduced damage to Beasts, Bugs, and Mechs.

Personally, I’d rather put it on an Aqua. Even though they don’t need the extra damage against the aforementioned classes (they already hold the class advantage), it’s still a pretty decent damage card. It also has decent shields that can come in handy in 1v1 situations.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • high damage and good shields
  • can gain Attack+ 

Cons

  • effect only works against certain classes
  • Star Shuriken and Hero’s Bane deal slightly more damage

Card Synergies

  • Crimson Water, Scale Dart, and Water Sphere
  • These cards have 120 base damage and could potentially deal more if paired with the Attack+ from Clam Slash
  • Angry Lam
  • Angry Lam’s effect could deal devastating damage if the user has Attack+
  • Upstream Swim, Swift Escape
  • These cards could be paired with Clam Slash and another high-damage mouth card to create a traditional Aqua build
  • Fish Hook
  • Having Risky Fish in your arsenal could help you get more Attack+ buffs and let you deal damage against stronger classes
