"Ranged and Magic attacks hit a random enemy target."
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Back to Basics - monster lose all abilities. A ruleset such as this is prime Conqueror Jacek territory. Throw off your opponent by targeting random monsters! This is especially impactful as they may front load their lineup with strong melee monsters, and leave the back line to low health ranged and magic attack monsters.||Counterspell/Fire & Regret - Ensure that your monster can dish what they take out! Consider adding a layer of protection, or utilizing a monster with void to protect your monsters.|
|Aim True - All monsters have the True Strike ability. This ensures that all of your attacks will land!||Broken Arrows/Lost Magic - Monsters with Ranged/Magic attacks cannot be used. This may limit the use case for scattershot.|
|Unprotected - all armor is removed from this ruleset. This makes your attacks all the more impactful, especially when ranged attacks are in play.||Back to Basics - monsters lose all abilities. Consider whether your monster with scattershot should still be included in your lineup.|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Camouflage - If your opponent plays a monster with camouflage, they may assume that they are immune to attacks. And they are, except for Scattershot, blast damage, and retaliatory attacks (retaliate, return fire, magic reflect, thorns)||Blind - reduces the accuracy of ranged and melee attacks.|
|Swiftness - Increased speed may be just what your monster needs to attack first and remove the opposition.||Phase - this ability allows magic attacks to be evaded|
|Blast - Scattershot and blast make a phenomenal pair, particularly when scattershot lands in the back line - damaging two adjacent monsters rather than one.||Return Fire/Magic Reflect - Ensure that your monster can dish what they take out! Consider adding a layer of protection, or utilizing a monster with void to protect your monsters.|
