How Is Scarab Curse Used?

This card is mainly used for offense and utility. It’s used against Axies that have lots of healing and prevent them from gaining back lost health.

It’s especially useful against Dusks, Plants, and Reptiles, because of their natural disadvantage against Bugs, but its primary use is to counter Axies that heal.

It also cannot be countered by cards that cleanse/transfer debuffs, like Blackmail, Refresh, and Cleanse Scent, making it an extremely strong debuff. 

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Scarab Curse?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage/utility Bugs. Scarab Curse is an amazing counter to teams that have a lot of healing cards.

Using this card on enemy Axies like the backline healing and Immortal Plant will force them to take damage and prevent them from regenerating. The Anemone Aqua will also be in a pickle when facing off against a Bug with this card in its arsenal.
