I kept my original defense personally, which is Telluria tank with Clarissa and Jean Francois flanks.
I think I was killed 3 times from 5 flags (2 flags + 2 flags + 1 flag).
I went against a typical Telluria/GM/Vela team, and I found them easier to kill thanks to the Equalizer. Usually I may struggle to get some extra tiles to cleanse myself and having Vela’s attack down, makes a big difference in tile damage and killing or not kills. Having these 3’s effects removed (I timed it right so they went off at the same time) was actually a Godsend and I destroyed a 4600 team, that I honestly should have lost due to a very bad starting board.
