How Is Patient Hunter Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out massive amounts of damage. It’s also used to target Aqua Axies and catch opponents off-guard.

It’s especially useful against Beasts, Mechs, and Bugs because of their natural disadvantage against Birds. It’s also great against Aquas.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Patient Hunter?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. Patient Hunter 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. It’s even more effective if the user has All-out Shot in order to reduce their HP below the threshold, activating the effect.

  • deals high damage
