Best Epic creatures in 5/21-5/25 tournament (Part 2)

In another Post, I talked about the best creatures in the tournament this weekend, and due to my rising boredom, I thought I could talk about the ranks of 6-10 on this list (so the other post isn’t too long). If you want to check out the top 5, click here: Epic tournament guide

6. Purutaurus
This guy falls at #6 on the list due to it’s durability thanks to long protection and instant distraction. These don’t sound good on their own, but due its greater rending counter, it becomes a much bigger threat. If he wants to deal even more damage, he has precise rampage to do the trick. And, if you don’t have a swap in, purutaurus can function as one thanks to its counter attack removing 33.4% of an unsuspecting creature’s hp. And to top this all off, purutaurus is a great finisher due to “no escape”.
Your best strategies: Purutaurus can be a pain to work around. Luckily, creatures like procerathomimus and entelochops can do just that. Postimetrodon will always crush purutaurus. Be careful though, as a purutaurus’s main strategy is set up long protection and wedge itself in there

7. Postimetrodon
Postimetrodon is that epic that kinda goes under the radar of many players when making a team. This thing does damage. With it’s decently high speed, good bulk, and immunity, postimetrodon can be a pain to fight. Add to the fact that it can regenerate makes this thing a good epic. Unlike it’s land-croc hybrid counterpart, it has access to all of its moves turn 1, so it can choose between the armor piercing and shield breaking, or it can choose to buff it’s attack for a ferocious impact. Sure 1200 attack doesn’t sound like much at first, but when the damage keeps stacking, 1200 turns into a lot more
Your best strategies: Procerath is a great option to take this down. It is faster and can nullify a postimetrodon’s ferocious buff if set up. Indom gen 2 has access to cloak, which postimetrodon has to hit through twice to get the knockout. While it may not like the aftermath, sarcorixis wins, but just by the keratin of its horn.

8. Brontolasmus
Brontolasmus has fallen. A lot. Due to the definite rampage nerf, many of the rhinos that received definite impact, except for brontolasmus, which cost manny of its matchups. However, that doesn’t mean bronto is a pushover. It is incredibly bulky with 4500 hp and 30% armor. That’s the same as tryko and dio. It may have lost one rampage, but it still has a turn 1 rampage that also slows. It can also break shields turn 1 thanks to rending attack. Brontolasmus does well against faster creatures that aren’t as bulky, while also handling the slower tanky creatures.
Your best strategies: Use chompers. Sarco and postimetrodon now win this matchup thanks to the nerf, and indom gen 2 and purutaurus always beat brontolasmus, but now they like the definite rampage nerf. Bronto may have fallen, but it can still deal a beating.

9. Erlikogamma
The jumping floof takes the #9 spot. Thanks to it’s 2 rampages, one of them being precise pounce, it can deal tons of damage. Sadly, gamma suffers due to its low hp, but makes up for it with debilitating distraction and pounce, which can reduce a creatures damage to 0. It’s second rampage is rampage and run, which has great team synergy, especially with #5 creature in this tournament, stegoceratops. This combo does 3500 damage, with the opponent not being able to react due to the stun. Gamma also works well against the crocs due to it’s immune to swap prevention. The last thing that makes gamma good is its high speed, with it being second to procerathomimus.
Your best strategies: Gamma is immune to swap prevention, but NOT deceleration. This makes creatures like brontolasmus and stegoceratops good creatures to use. It is also not the most durable of creatures, so it can be taken down quickly. Stegoceratops can take out over a third of its hp in a swap, so it’s not hard to kill, but it can swap out, which is what you don’t want to happen.

10. Gorgosuchus
The mammo slayer rounds out the top 10. It may not have the greatest 1v1 matchups in this tournament, but an experienced player knows that’s not what you use gorgosuchus for. Gorgosuchus is the best revenge killer in the game, because when it sets up, it can kill so many creatures in 1 hit. Erlikogamma, postimetrodon, entelochops, and sarcorixis. This makes gorgosuchus a creature to consider using and to take seriously. And even when it isn’t set up, it still does so much damage that it isn’t going to be a walk in the park.
Your best strategies: In a 1v1, many creatures take down gorgosuchus. These range from sarcorixis, to procerath, to postimetrodon. However, that’s not what many players will do with gorgosuchus. They will want to set up, so that now limits the amount of creatures you can use. Brontolasmus can still take down gorgo whether it’s set up or not. Indom can always use cloak against gorgo. Procerath can also fight a set up gorgo as well.

Those are the top 10. There are many creatures that you can use in this tournament, but from my experience, these creatures are the best. Good luck to everyone tomorrow
