i was going to lose that one, except i dropped a volcano at low hp, and the last hit came at swap to my last pet that would have been one shot for sure. i did try swaping back to runt on sweep, but it died quickly.
I did not have a runt. I used Mr Grubbs instead with (1,1,2) . turn1 acidic goo turn2 chomp
turn3 burrow turn4 acidic goo turn 5 chomp turn6( Leonard res round) chomp leonard dies
Corrupted slime comes in acidic goo then burrow Mr Grubbs dies bring in Infernal pyreclaw and follow above strat.
hope this works for you
So far Dead Deckhand Leonard always uses Sweep during turn 1-6 against me. And if I swap in Clefthoof Runt as advised, the one additional attack and heal means Dead Deckhand Leonard consistently kills Clefthoof Runt.
Slight problem. You never know when Dead Deckhand Leonard is going to employ Sweep and your Clefthorn Runt will be swapped out with Infernal Pyreclaw. If that happens, the only suggestion I could make is to swap the Clefhorn Runt back in and resume the stampede.
The first time, I was swapped out, and Infernal Pyreclaw's attacks are reduced against Dead Deckhand Leonard, so I ended up losing. So, the second time, I did Stampede, then Trumpet Strike, then Smash and didn't get swapped out. I then started another Stampede against Corrupted Slime before I died, and I was able to open with Scorched Earth with Shattered Defenses on Corrupted Slime.
I just had this happen to me as well. Took your advice and just swapped Clefthoof Runt back in, and continued the strat. When Cinder Pup came in, used Crouch first, then finished with Flame Breath. Will update strat accordingly.
