Strategy

This stage is an exact copy of Parade of the Dead, though with a restriction in place. Due to the restriction, the player can no longer rely on meatshields and must use high costing units such as certain tanks and suicide bombers (e.g., Jamiera Cat and Awakened Bahamut Cat) to win the battle.

Strategy 1

Lineup: Manic Jamiera Cat, Jamiera Cat, Defense Up or Attack Up combos, Drone Cat, Roe Cat (unless you reduced the cost too much), Cataur (Zombie Killer + Target Zombie talents), an Uber who can last quite a bit (Sakura Matou, Balrog Cat, Subterra Guardians etc.) and Awakened Bahamut Cat

Cat Cannon: Holy Blast

Battle Items: Rich Cat and Sniper the Cat

Battle: Spam Jamiera Cat the whole time if you can and time Cataurs to sneak in. Use Awakened Bahamut Cat to wittle down health or kill a stack of Angel enemies. Make sure to have high enough levels for the Jamiera Cats / Manic Jamiera Cats as they do most of the work and stalling. Your Uber will help for waves in which Awakened Bahamut Cat isn't available.

Note that this strategy isn't very reliable and can fail just for bad RNG. There is a point with a few Heavenly Hippoes and an Angelic Gory in which you MUST have enough to spawn Awakened Bahamut Cat. If you don't, the Angel enemies will push and destroy everything, having enough at this time is essential.
