So let's talk talents for a minute. The Ghost Dragon's epic talent was added on petnome (submitted by me). It was Spell-Proof, which was fairly disappointing. I hoped for some new talents, but I suppose it could be worse. The Nightmare's epic talent is Unicorn, which in my opinion, is much better. Did you know that if you buy a Nightmare for crowns, you will automatically get Unicorn at teen? It's a great deal. 

Lately, I've been trying to figure out what the best "May Cast" pet would be. I've had to consider all the possible talents with cast rates that I'm not fully aware of. After all, besides the school specific "May Casts," there's Balanceblade, Tower Shield, Unicorn, Spritely, Cloud O' Bugs, Snow 'N Tell, Smokescreen, Hex, Curse, Pierce Train, Power Up, Taunt, Drop It, Weakness. First I needed to consider each spell that the talent casts. I could now mark out Curse, because both Hex and Balanceblade were higher bonuses.

Next, I (think, considering I don't know some of the casting rates) ruled out Smokescreen, Tower Shield, and Unicorn. I still wasn't sure about the first two, but I'd heard that they didn't cast too often. Next, I considered the spells cast. I ruled out Power Up because it didn't benefit only me. I got rid of Drop It and Pierce Train because they were dependent on the opponent having a shield or charm. Next, I ruled out Taunt because the spell was useless in PvP. This left Balanceblade, Spritely, Cloud O' Bugs, Snow 'N Tell, Hex, and Weakness. I might also have though about Smokescreen and Tower Shield based on casting rates. Beyond that, though, I couldn't seem to narrow it down. Here are some public opinions.
