Stormriven Pylons

Okay, so a bunch of people have issues with the Stormriven Cheating bosses at the Pylons. Here's a quick rundown of which pylon summons which.

As you can see, I've labeled the pylons in the picture. For all those who want more information other than just 'which pylon summons which boss' the rest of the post is for you.

Boss: Thunderfin
Health: 3,740
School: Storm (Casts mainly Life)
His Trick(s): Any Rank 4+ spell will trigger a Fire version of Power Nova, complete with Weakness.
Any way around it? Small Spell Deck (X-3 pips), Quench, Single Hit Kill

Boss: Procyon
Health: 7,610
School: Myth
His Trick(s): When you heal, if there are 2 open spots, he gets 2 Fishbot buddies
Any way around it? Spritely pets don't trigger him

Boss: Cuthalla
Health: 5,230
School: Storm
His Trick(s): Gets 1 Tower Shield whenever a Charm/Ward is played, Wraiths on Low Level non Charm/Wards, Heals for 5,000 when hit with X-Pip and Wand Damage, Orthrus when someone Polymorphs, replaces Damage bubbles (other than ones he casts) with Doom and Gloom
Any way around it? Large Spell Deck (4 pip+), no Charms, Wards, Bubbles, or Polymorphs

Boss: Narallor Nightborn
Health: 7,495
School: Moon (Casts mainly Death)
His Trick(s): Gets one Opposite school blade when hit.
2 Storm hits = Orthrus
2 Myth hits = Stormzilla
2 Fire hits = Colossus
2 Death hits = Centaur
2 Balance hits = Wraith
2 Life hits = Wraith
2 Ice hits = Helaphant
Any way around it? Don't hit 2x in a row with same, no DoT spells, use Prisms

Boss: Marcio
Health: 9,255
School: Ice
His Trick(s): Automatically uses Cleanse Charm when placed with a Trap, replaces Bubbles with Doom and Gloom
Any way around it? No Traps or Bubbles; Use Vaporize
