How Is Ill-omened Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out massive amounts of damage. It’s also used to drastically prevent your opponent from critically striking.

It’s especially useful against Beasts, Mechs, and Bugs because of their natural disadvantage against Birds. It’s also great against teams with high Morale and guaranteed crits.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Ill-omened?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. Ill-omened deals a lot of damage, which makes it one of the top Bird cards in terms of offensive potential.

It’s also a great card for backdoor Birds because of its high base damage, but Eggbomb and Blackmail are still the best choices in my opinion.

Pros and Cons of the Ill-omened Card
