Champed Moon Rider, slow board, deny green and black. Took one Holding Back, retorted with a Moonsilver Blades. Two matches later she's down. Near full health left. LT got me fourth JJ. Nice!

    I got it after about 5 tries with my 1/4/4 level 152 Moon Knight.  For the winning attempt, I managed to collect enough black and green to cast Fist of Khonshu and Moonsilver Blades twice each to finish the match.  I fired all the abilities in one turn to counter X-23's healing.

    I thought we had got a new character from the title until I realised you meant Moon Knight, lol!

     Got it first try, no boosts, with my 5/3/5 Level 273 Moon Knight.

    She was able to match one of her colors on just about every move, which essentially negated the matches I'd been making. She hit a cascade with purple and fired Tracking Prey, and wouldn't you know it, she matched the trap as soon as she'd set it.

    That was my only sticking point. Shortly after, I hit 12 green and her health was just below the threshold I needed to take her out in one shot, though I had gotten enough black AP I could have finished her had green not quite been enough. 

    Finished in the low to mid 4000s HP left, token to the hoard I'll be opening Sunday.

    2/5/5, level 180. It took me two tries, because on my first attempt the board would just not give me any green. On my second, despite red dropping every time she needed a heal, I managed to hit her with a 1-2 green-black punch to take her down, after a few attack tiles whittled her down.

    Token to my hoard, since I just wiped out my ISO stash promoting Kate to champion today.

    5/2/5 lvl 200. Got it in one. Fast favorable board for me with plenty of crits and cascades. Hit Laura once with a fist then the baterang... er I mean moonsilvers and X-23 goes down.

    2/2/5 level 155. No boosts, first go. Lost the race to green and ate one holding back. Thought it would be over once she put a trap out, but I landed a very lucky and colorful cascade enabling a Fist/Blades double feature to end the match.

    Blade champ level.

    I felt a bit gypped on this one, I bought the H4H cover to bring my MK up to 4/3/5 lvl229, I decided to use green AP boosts because I don't have a lot of experience using him, and...

    ...the opening screen had 2 green match-5s that totaled 13AP BEFORE the AP I came in with. I fired off Moonsilver Blades after my second match and finished her before she ever got a turn.

    Token got me a 5* GR (yay!) black cover (boo!) to make him a 0/2/3.

    Got lucky with my 1/2/5 lvl 120 Moon Knight and completed this in one try. Used AP boosts and collected enough AP to double fired his green to take her out. Token to the hoard.

    First go, no boosts and had 13k health left for my 5/3/5 lvl 271 Moon Knight. I love that guy.

    2/2/4 Lvl168. Ironically, I would have managed it first try if I had used boosts, but I pretty much never do on the first go, because I'm getting a feel for the fight more than anything. I was one green short of a match-ending Moonsilver Blades when she fired her purple and immediately matched it, downing me.

    A couple of bad boards where she whittled me down while her healing kept her going, and then on the 5th try, I managed to pull together enough AP for a Moonsilver Blades followed by three Fists of Khonshu for the win.

    For others with an under-covered MK, the big takeaway I got from this is that you can't nickle and dime her, even if you do get a bunch of Attack tiles or something. Her healing is too strong for that approach. Save up your AP until you can drop her in one turn.

    Token waiting for Cap on Monday.

    First go with 4/3/5 lvl 229 Moon Knight - as per others, saved up green and black until I could fire both in the one turn.

    Token was an archangel blue to be 1/3/1

    Not long after the fight, I also got a black moon knight cover so now he is fully covered 5/3/5

    3/0/5 because the game hates me. Or loves me. Depends on how you look at it.
    Level 152

    Could have done it the first but every green fall was her's to take. Boosted the AP, stacked black and green until I had enough to one shot her. Just a slow fight, really. Could be painful without Moonsilver Blade levels.

    Easy win for a lv 278 5/3/5 MK.  Just make matches until I can fire off a green and black.  Smacked her with a blade then knocked her lights out.  Even with that level MK, you don't want to fire off special attacks until they down here all in 1 turn

    LT hoarded for CA

    Level 127 2/2/2 on about my 15th try. Boosted ap in green/black.  Needed to hoard ap until I could fire black 3 times (27 ap), and green 2x (24 ap)on same turn while avoiding her purple trap.  I kept trying because I kept getting close. I was 1 ap short three different times.
