How Is Insectivore Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out damage and take out unsuspecting Bug Axies. It’s usually paired with other high-damage Bird cards to burst down targets.

It’s especially useful against Beasts, Mechs, and Bugs because of their natural disadvantage against Birds. Unfortunately, its effect is pretty niche, because Bugs are rarely put in the backline, nor do they need to be instantly taken down.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Insectivore?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. Players often pair it with other high-damage Bird cards to create a purely damage-oriented Axie

Unfortunately, Insectivore’s effect doesn’t really fit in with any specific team composition, but it could be useful in the current Bug meta.
