Yeah, she’s not particularly “tanky,” so a decent mono green team should kill her with three tiles. A decent mono of any color other than red should kill her in six tiles.
And also, when she’s in the tank position, if she’s not killed by tiles first, she’s likely to fire before other defenders, and therefore not likely to kill any attackers.
Finally, if an attacker brings any minion generating heroes:
- If the attacker gets enough on-color tiles to fire before skadi, skadi’s likely dead from tiles already anyway.
- If the attacker doesn’t fire first, refer to #2 above.
Skaid is much better as a flank or wing on defense, so her special can fire after some damage has alreayd been done to the attackers, or after the attacker has had a chance to generate some minions for Skadi to kill (which would be dumb, of course, and making lineup decisions about your defense, which include inherent stupidity on the part of attackers, is probably not a great approach).
