Trifecta: What's THAT in the Moat?

Guardians Trifectas

Trifectas are interesting -- and sometimes deadly -- three-card combos for Guardians . . . if you can pull them off.

And watch out that you're not on the receiving end of one of them!

What's THAT in the Moat?

(This is more of a defense combo.)
Freebooter Stronghold

Either the right or the left one

7-point AOE



Entering the stronghold triggers a 7-pt AOE, so your foe can have at most three cards (worth 8 or more). You're single creature is a 20, +4 for Rivers and Lakes, +4 for the stronghold, for a Vitaly 28 primary attack (36 if up against an elemental), ready to pound just about anything.

To prevent the Watcher from becoming toast to secondaries, add a creature or two to draw some fire:
  • A bunch of 2 point weenies (with stronghold and R&L bonuses) can outnumber and kill your opponent's two or three creatures.
  • A Grotto Troll and a weenie or two.
  • A Minotaur. If it loses to a really big card, then the Watcher will see to it that you keep control of the space.
  • And my personal favorite (drum roll) . . .
  • A Water Nymph, weighing in as a 14 in the primary matchup, before any off-color bonuses. If she goes up against a bigger creature, by simple arithmetic, the Watcher creamed its opponent.

Your opponent will need channeling or off-color bonuses to get past you.
