|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Up Close and Personal - With only melee monsters allowed to battle, evasive tactics can be quite useful.||Aim True - monsters always hit their targets rendering Dodge ineffectual.|
|Stampede - Trample will be able to retrigger infinitely as long as the trampling monster keeps killing other monsters. Stack your team with monsters able to evade attacks - preventing your opponent from taking out multiple monsters on your team!||Reverse Speed - Monsters with lower speeds will attack before monsters with higher speeds. Be sure to check your dodging monsters speed so that they do not fall victim to a slower monster!|

Ensure that they can handle it!|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Swiftness - all friendly monsters have increased speed. Dodging attacks is the key to success.||True Strike - If your opponent plays a monster with true strike, they are guaranteed to hit their target neutralizing evasion efforts.|
|Backfire - If an enemy misses this Monster with an attack, the attacker takes 2 damage||Slow - If your opponent plays a monster with slow, be aware that the speed of your monsters will decrease by 1.|
|Blind - If your opponent plays a monster with blind, dodge, or flying, be aware that your monster has an increased chance of missing attacks. Pray they do not include the backfire ability in their lineup!||Return Fire - If you play a ranged attack monster with dodge, they will take damage from Return Fire.|
- Review the Attack Accuracy Guide
- Dodge is not stackable with dodge. If a monster and summoner both have dodge, attack accuracy is only reduced 25% - NOT compounded.
- Dodge is stackable with flying and swiftness - a maximum of 65% chance of evading attacks is possible.
