How Is Ivory Stab Used?
This card is used mainly as a support card for Single Combat because of its guaranteed critical strike when comboed with 2 or more cards. It can also be used as a relatively decent damage card against tanky classes
Its main purpose is to generate energy for the player through crits, making it somewhat of a high risk, high reward card.
What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Ivory Stab?
Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Beast Axies. They use Ivory Stab to burst enemy tanks down and possibly gain energy in the process.
Unfortunately, Ivory Stab isn’t a great card on its own, which is why it is typically paired with Single Combat to create a RImp (Ronin-Imp) Beast.
If the user doesn’t have guaranteed critical strikes, the player would then need to rely on high Morale and luck to activate Ivory Stab’s effect.
Pros and Cons of the Ivory Stab Card
- deals a relatively decent amount of damage and provides good shields
- generates energy if any Axie from the user’s team critically strikes in the same round
- not a good card on it’s own (unless you’re extremely lucky)
- has low base damage in comparison to other Beast cards
