How to beat the chain bolters

Everybody is mad at these wild bolters, and i used to not have a problem with it but since i have been doing ranked pvp i face a chain bolter about 7/10 of the time.
So i have come up with a tactic for beating them.

1. Buy a storm shield from the fairegrounds with your next training point.
(if you are a grandmaster buy storm treasures from the bazaar)

2.Max out your spell deck with storm shields

3. Max out a best attack spell
Fire-helephant
Ice-collosus
life-centaur
myth-orthrus
death-wraith
Balance-judgement

Make sure these are all bladed and trapped and for judgement use the pips needed just to take them out.

Ok lets move on to the arena.
4. start tossing up storm shields like crazy.
Even if they go first, if you have at least 1100+ health, you should survive the first bolt.

(If the storm shields are up, they have no choice but to waste time taking them down when you do your buffed attack, or deal with the strong shield when they bolt.) Get what I'm saying?

5.Once your attack is bladed and trapped use the attack reccomended above.(If they shield do your attack again since they have low health points)

6. repeat step 4 and 5 until they are defeated.

rather than spend a trianing point there are storm amulets that give you two storm shields at 85%, most schools have regular shields against storm.
No I think you will find you best plan is the simply one; short stack your deck. place shields, heals, blades, and traps in your deck; shield aggressively place your blades and pull your attack cards from your treasure cards when your ready to attack. this of course requires you to make your attack cards into treasure cards by adding tough to them, making them yourself, or buying them. people whine about treasure card users but they whine about chain stunners and wild bolters too. if you want to win use what works for you, someone always loses and if they lack character they make excuses or they step up and find a way to win.I am glad your appear to be stepping up and finding a way to win. GOOD LUCK

I know what you could do with a training point! You can buy a storm shield!

Hmmm... well in a way this could work but in a deck you can only have a certain number of that card like say 4 that wouldn't be very usefull...

Shielding against bolts does work. I use it all the time. Rarely do I lose to a chain bolter.
