Let's examine the strange and deadly creature, the flying puffer. What are the pros and cons of using it on offense, or defense? What items do you use with your puffer?
I think it's a great creature to use on offense, as any defending creature that accidentally kills it will also die and - voila - no toll. Which items do you use to ensure that this happens?
How about holding a high-level land with a puffer? Anything that kills it in battle will also die. It's like a form of land insurance. "If I can't have this land, neither can you!"
(I recently heard of someone in Virgina having a "forclosure party", where their house was being taken away the next day, so they held a huge party, and charged people $20 at the door for the opportunity to use sledgehammers and power tools to totally wreck the house.)
What's your favorite way to use the explosive flying fish? Remember, it can't use scroll or tool items.
I am almost quite certain that the Basalt Idol will remedy the Upon Victory is destroyed and the Upon defeat destoys opponent. So I would think it would be good to put the Puffer out for attack while Basalt Idol is placed (therefore reserving your new won territory, assuming you won) and then later pick up/destroy the Basalt Idol to ensure that no one gets the land should they defeat the puffer.
