How Is Sunder Claw Used?

This card is mainly used for utility. It’s used to discard potentially important enemy cards, rendering them unable to make the plays they want.

It’s especially useful against Dusks, Plants, and Reptiles, because of their natural disadvantage against Bugs, but its primary use is to discard enemy cards.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Sunder Claw?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage/utility Bugs. Sunder Claw is an amazing counter to teams that rely on card combos and draw-dependent Axies.

Triple Sunder Claw and Third Glance is a pretty common combination. It’s an insanely annoying composition to deal with, especially when they discard tons of cards at a time.
