How Is Risky Feather Used?

This card is used mainly to dish out massive amounts of damage. It’s commonly used at the end of a combo in order to maximize the amount of damage the user deals. 

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

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Risky Feather

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Bird Axies. It’s also a great card to have on a backdoor Bird because it deals immense amounts of damage, and the drawback from the 2 stacks of Attack- is offset by the already low damage of Dark Swoop/Smart Shot.

Pros and Cons of the Risky Feather Card


  • deals great damage and provides great shields
  • ignores targets that are in Last Stand


  • effect would rarely come in handy
