How Is Smart Shot Used?

This card is used mainly to take out midline and backline Axies, as well as catch opponents off-guard with the target prioritization. It’s usually paired with other card to either instantly burst enemies down, or inflict debuffs.

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

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Smart Shot?

Most of the Axies that use this card are the Poison Axie lineups. Sometimes, you may find them in strange builds such as a high damage Bird or Mech with Smart Shot.
