Out of curiosity, which is better against overheal monsters?
Nidhogg + PR RBG ED (Not combo reliant by current HP reliant)
or Dual L/D ED.(Combo reliant)
An overheal monster usually hits very hard to stop you from overhealing yourself. I would recommend you to use the top build because:
1. Unless the enemy hits for 90% of your health per turn, overhealing with PR RGB ED only requires you 2 sets of 3 heart runes. However, for efficient overhealing, you must be injured, the bloodier the better. PR RGB ED healing is based on percentage, therefore the more injured you are, the more you are healed. Nidhogg's bites helps you achieve that goal, indirectly.
2. Nidhogg's amplified HP means you will heal by a percentage of your missing HP, which in this case, a big chunk. Two sets of heart runes can deal up to 14k of overhealing damage, something dual Faugn/Tulzscha can't normally achieve.
This, however, will be a long grind. But if you are trying to win against overheal monsters with dragons...it might not be your best choice after all.

One thing to add is that novalis is not really the best leader for conventional dragons, and is outclassed by nidhogg & light ds. If you want to be more complete i remember someone playing dual agatha to clear transmigration with an additional medea.
How good is team 6? never tried it before but is the minor attack boost worth it compared to dual ursula/dual pr faugn?
Thank you for your opinion! It is to my believe that Dragons are well known for their survivability, therefore playing Dual Agatha is a very risky proposition due to the fact that Dragons have a significantly low recovery. I am quite biased to decks that are "safe", where safe means you don't get knee-deep in poop just moments after a condition where you're perfectly fine.
Novalis is not yet outclassed due to the fact that:
1. It doesn't require a Power Release
2. Nidhogg is not simply accessible to most players
3. How (in the seven levels of inferno) is Light DS, who supports the same risky mechanism of 6-runes-dissolve but somehow without an internal 50% damage bonus, better than Novalis?
Number 3 is more of a question than a fact, it seems.
Team 6 focuses on their versatility, which looks pretty much like a Swiss Army Knife to you, call it jack-of-all-trades. It sports multiple offensive and defensive options, where I believe can be found in the front page, but I will save you the time and type it here anyways.
-Burst with Novalis and Ursula
-Constant damage with PR Faugn passive and Heart Converters
-Leech AND heart rune healing, where dissolving Heart runes means you heal AND leech since it is counted as Dark runestones, versatility against enemies of varying defenses
-Defense piercer given by Faugn
-Surprise Heart drops with 3 Ameliorated PR EDs
-60% shielding with Barbara
-30% constant damage bonus
If you are comparing this to Dual Faugn, you will notice that Dual Faugn will have superiority in damage and burst. However, Dual Faugn has no shield. Dual Ursula (not a really good idea btw) will have superiority in constant bursts and leech. However, it will not heal when attacking high defense enemies. In summary, this jack-of-all-trade deck might not be the strongest in one niche, but certainly this delivers flexibility for most summoners.
