How Is Single Combat Used?

This card is mainly used to deal large amounts of damage and pop tanks. It could also be used in certain situations to catch opponents off-guard and burst their Axies 

It is mostly used to activate Ivory Stab’s effect because of its guaranteed critical strike.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Single Combat?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer “RImp” Beasts. They use Single Combat to burst enemies and generate energy with Ivory Stab.

There are Aqua Axies that have Single Combat in order to supplement their lack of damage against tankier classes. Axies with a zero-cost card could also opt for Single Combat because they could easily create a three-card combo.
