"Does double damage against targets that cost 10 or more mana."
Standard damage to monsters that cost 9 or less mana.
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|What Doesn't Kill You - All monsters are granted increased speed and melee attacks when damaged. Enrage paired with Giant Killer can allow you to deal an even more devastating blow!||Back to Basics - keep in mind that monsters lose all abilities with this ruleset.|
|Melee Mayhem - Melee monsters can attack from any position.||Little Leagues - Only monsters with a mana cost of 4 or below may be used. This negates the usefulness of Giant Killer|
|Heavy Hitters - all monsters gain the Knock Out ability - double damage to enemies that are stunned. Coupled with pierce, this attack on a stunned monster could take them out of the battle.||Aimless - Concentrating giant killing attacks on your opponent's tank is generally ideal. Any ruleset that interferes with where attacks land may complicate your plans.|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Inspire - +1 to all melee attacks. Imagine the damage you can do while enraged and inspired!||Demoralize - -1 to all melee attacks.|
|Trample - when a Monster with Trample hits and kills its target with a Melee attack, it will perform another Melee attack on the next Monster on the enemy Team.||Stun - If your opponent uses stun, your monster will not be able to attack. This could hamstring your strategy if you were reliant on a strong tank for victory. Remember to round out your team with many attack types and abilities.|
|Piercing - If Melee or Ranged attack damage is in more that the target's Armor, the excess will damage the target's Health||Forcefield - If the giant you seek to destroy has forcefield, woe betide your attack with power of 5+ as it will only do 1 damage.|
- Your opponent choosing to play a monster with 10+ mana cost and the Taunt ability will ensure that your Giant Killing attacks are directed towards the correct target.
- Spy on your opponent's previously played teams to see whether they favor 10+ mana tanks.
