Category Evaluation
Offense Beatdown and Spell Bait hybrid deck.
Use the Giant to shield your Sparky for a beatdown.
Use the Tornado to pull units near their tower for a Sparky splash damage.
You can also do a naked Skeleton Barrel push or go for a big Giant push.
Defense Aside from using the Tornado + Sparky for defense, you can also combo it with the Executioner.
Use the Electro Wizard for quick defense.
You can also use the Skeleton Barrel against the Inferno Tower.
