How Is Death Mark Used?

This card is used mainly to burst down enemy Axies. Because it’s a Beast card, it deals additional damage against the tank classes, Plant, Reptile, and Dusk.

Its main purpose is inflicting Lethal on targets, a debuff that turns the next attack the affected Axie receives into a guaranteed critical hit that would deal insane amounts of damage.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Death Mark?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Beast Axies. There are also a few builds that take advantage of All-out Shot’s self-inflicted damage to reduce their Axie down to the HP threshold required to activate Death Mark’s effect.

Lethal is especially effective against tanky classes (Plant, Reptile, Dusk). Having guaranteed critical strikes could easily spell disaster for the enemy team and instantly melt even the beefiest of tanks.
