With the buffs to her thorns and fix to her trait, Ivy has become a very deadly force in the corner, as you’ll see in the video below.
Regular Thorns (1 bar + Trait)
-the setup is anything into MB kiss, summon yoshi, then b2 thorns. You are safe
-if the opponent is trying to d1, you can d1 before them and convert.
-if the opponent tries to jump, they take jump damage, you can S1 to catch them and convert.
MB Thorns (2 bars + Trait)
-same setup as regular thorns. You just recover much quicker. Same exact situation as the regular thorns, but since you recover quicker, you can use b2 instead.
Because of this, you can condition your opponent to not jump or poke, and they are sitting there taking A LOT of chip. The only guaranteed way out of this is to pushblock, but you still take DoT from thorns still being active. If you play the spacing game, you don’t even have to worry about pushblock and scout what the opponent is going to do.
Once you Establish this game, you can start using her safe 50/50
Let me know what you guys think!
*there were times when I mistimed my d1 and I would get stuffed out my d1. Timing needs to be key
