Quick version of my thoughts on the new phobies:
Conductor (C-) : His active seems kind of meh to me (going full undead usually isn’t a very good idea), but his combat stats are actually decent - Kind of comparable to Fetch, but with a good chunk more health.
Badside Manners (E+): Stats seem underwhelming for 5 keys, especially when compared to Snappy (another new unit).
Snappy (C+): Seems like a pretty decent early turret that’s pretty hard to take down or force to retreat due to it’s large health pool.
Mummy (D+): Huge amount of attack power, but it’s a melee unit that kind of needs to be used for tempo early on. You’re probably better off going for a 2 range 2 movement big unit in most cases.
Giggles (C-): Attack power is looking real big, but it’s kind of squishy for a 4-cost turret (at level 1 it has 50 health less than normal BoMangles which is 1 less key). Not unusable, but turrets are more commonly used to hold down a part of the map so that you can bank keys for larger units, which is why you want them to be hard to take down.
Tooth Fairy (A-): Kind of like a side-grade to Murder Wing, has a bit less burst damage but more consistent damage with multiple attacks and a bit more HP. Personally I think burst is very valuable on small units so I’d place it a bit below Murder Wing.
Jaws (C): Can get to kind of wild attack numbers which can make it good for invades or huge amount of heart burst damage, but takes a very long time to set up and costs a lot more keys than most seem to realize (it’s effectively a 7 cost if you eat Wiggy for example).
Goon (A+): Incredible unit! Tanky, powerful line attack that can heal him a bunch (can also 1-hit Jars), can be placed on Stim Pads or used with buffers to 1-hit larger back-liners or it can just be used to hit enemies that get too close as it’s only 1 turn cooldown. It’s most comparable to Puff (less utility since it’s not flying and has no fire, but it has a lot better stats) which is a very good unit.
Baaaad Sheep (B): Pretty good for AOE poison, though I still think it will have a bit of a problem hitting large amounts of enemies at times. The best comparison is Noxious in my opinion, and I’d probably rather have Noxious in most cases since it’s 1 key cheaper, easier hit multiple with while staying safe and (importantly) has flying.
