How Is Merry Legion Used?

This card is mainly used defensively and deals a fair bit of damage. It could be used as a shield card, especially when it’s played in a chain.

It could even be used to poke enemy Axies.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Merry Legion?

Most of the Axies that use this card are either tanky/utility or damage-dealer Beasts. They use Merry Legion to dish out some damage while also putting up a large shield to block damage.

I’ve also encountered tanky Axies that have this card because it synergizes well with Beast Axies due to its effect.
