Butchers problems

Recommended Posts

I play against the local pundit about once or twice a week and lose almost every time against his butchers. The times I have won, were because we were in a league and I had the advantage at smaller team sizes. So I've tried goal scoring lists like bushel tater buckwheat jackstraw barrow and grange with almost no success and fighty teams(my personal favorite list) grange fallow jackstraw milestone tater peck with slightly more success but I can't get to 4 kills one goal. Any advice on beating butchers?

If I am playing as a butcher, I am dropping Ox in order to get the kills. Ox has a hard time against Grange in my experience so I feel Grange is the better drop.

Ya I think Grange should be a better drop. Except that I still don't have the tactics down to win.  Last night I played Grange, Harrow, Millstone, Tater, Fallow, Peck.  I made a positioning error with Tater early on and basically handed him the game.   Maybe it's my line up, maybe I just need more practice with positioning.  I am not sure, but all I know is that Brisket gets a goal and everyone else kills me dead.

I recently played this match up on my channel, so check that out. I feel that grange is the better drop by far. If you receive I'm not sure how butchers ever engage on you in a favorable way.

What lists do you generally like against butchers? This one or are there others? Given that farmer's don't score goals easily do you recommend trying to kill better than butchers?

This is the list I prefer, but if you are receiving I think you can play whatever you want. Counter charge is an enormous issue for filet and without the ball she has no way to circumvent it. The reason I personally don’t like thresher here is you are essentially trying to play the same game as your opponent. You both have big dangerous captains with lists that fully support them.
