Scavo Hireling

There are monsters that are not intimidating at first glance but can be game-changer against even the biggest behemoths. Scavo Hireling is one of those. This unit can often buy valuable time for its entire team.

Being the only monster of the starter deck with Repair, players who experienced the change in meta since the introduction of Chaos Legion had the opportunity to compare this ability to Tank Heal.

Against Melee and Ranged attacks, Repair is arguably better than Tank Heal. One single armor can cancel out a huge amount of damage. By comparison, Tank Heal while powerful, cannot offer the same benefit.

Repair, the ultimate workaround in the Healed Out ruleset


One of the options to absorb extra hits in the Healed Out ruleset is using Repair. In the following battle, I decided to go with Djinn Chwala as my main tank and Scavo Hireling as its backup.

I was counting on the Thorns of the Djinn to inflict serious damage to the opposition because even one armor can inflict two damage to a Melee monster. This worked out well against the Kraken.

Also, in low mana battles, I like to place Ant Miners behind my 0 mana monsters. With its Scavenger ability, it often reaches the front with enough health to withstand a few rounds. This turned out to be beneficial once again.

In this specific battle, Ant Miners helped destroy the Kraken's armor before letting the Djinn finish the work. The Kraken was constantly hitting Chwala's armor while Scavo Hireling was repairing it just after.

A little scare at the end

At the very end, Djinn Chwala was facing an Ice Pixie without armor and only one health point. However, Chwala managed to miss three attacks in a row, which almost lost the battle. Magic hitting under the armor, the Djinn was left with only one HP before finally landing its hit.

Thank you very much for appreciating my "work" @lenonmc21 ! Could I know what you mean by more details about my strategies? It seems that I've explained why I chose each unit of my lineup and why those specific units regarding the ruleset. However, I'll be keen on analysing further the points you need me to! Usually, I like to be straight to the point and offer a light and concise read to the audience while being able to convey the main steps leading to my lineups (there are some much content out there that I don't want to drag on for too long). Thank you in advance! @tt88
