Category Evaluation
Offense The Balloon is your main win condition.
Your other units can deal offensive damage after countering.
This deck is perfect for counter-pushing.
Defense All your cards minus the Balloon are great for defense.
You can always set up a counter-push by placing the Ice Golem or the Baby Dragon at the bridge.
Watch Out For This deck doesn't have a handy Zap spell but instead uses the Electro Wizard. It may be tough against Inferno Dragons, Sparky, Inferno Tower if he's out of your rotation.
