image.png

Having a hard time facing the wrath of the Beast Duo Scarred Llama and Kron the Undying in Silver League. Heres a guide on how to possibly beat this resilient duo. This is not a 100% guarantee you will win because of different factors but it has a chance of beating them. But before we start the strategy on how to possibly beat them. Lets meet them and check their ability first.

SUMMONER: SCARRED LLAMA MAGE

This summoner has 3 abilities at the same time for a single summoner but costs 7 mana to summon. It is like 3 summoners fuse into one beast. His first ability gives all friendly monsters +2 Health. His second ability is last stand, an outstanding ability that gives increase in all stats of the only remaining monster standing on the field. His third skill cleanse all debuff from the friendly monster in the first position. All his skills makes Kron a BEAST! A great legendary card in addition to your NFT collection but costs 800$ (pretty expensive for a regular foil) as of this writing.

KRON THE UNDYING

This monster ability is HEAL which restores a portion of the monster's health each round and depends on the damage he received that round. He costs 10 mana to summon but really worth it if paired with Llama. Has 3 magic attack, 2 speed and 10 HP. Already have a powerful stats then paired with Llama and Last Stand Ability activates, he will turn into a BEAST and could wipe out all of your entire remaining monsters. Also a great legendary card in addition to your NFT collection but costs 550$ as of this writing.

We already meet this two beast and next will be how to deal with them. Can we really beat them? For some players out there who stays in the Silver League. Have you experienced faced against them and pressing the RUMBLE button then immediately pressing the SKIP results button knowing the outcome of the battle? I feel you guys, I hate to face this annoying duo and auto-lose even using with level 3-4 rented cards lineup.

So, I research some possible options on how to beat them in a regular battle. Considering no ruleset in a fight.

The first would be always check your opponents five previous battle history. If you see the Llama-Kron combo, he will likely use this combo if the mana cap will be 17 or above. Also, pls check how he position Kron. Positioning is very important because if you predict the right position where Kron will be placed, it is a great factor to increase your chance of winning. The positioning of how you placed your own moster will depends on the positioning of Kron your facing. But most likely Kron will be placed at the last position in order to ensure last stand ability will be activated on Kron. Then, monster with the ability SNEAK will be your key here. But also consider that your tanks will hold all of your opponents monster's barrage and not only KRON. My recommended tank would be monster that has Magic Reflect Ability that deals additional return magic damage against Kron considering he is a magic type monster. Here are some of the monsters that has a magic reflect ability and can be used as a tank.

Failed summoner, Minotaur Warlords and Prismatic Energy

And if you are into death splinter, there is a summoner that has that magic reflect ability, Owster Rotwell. He gives all his friendly monster the magic reflect ability. Make sure your summoners will be able to summon at least level 3 monster.

A good decent tank for death splinter that could face against the mighty Kron would be a level 3 or higher Haunted Spirit with Owster as summoner so he can have two abilities which is Heal and Magic Reflect. Level 3 Haunted spirit has good decent damage and HP to at least par with the beast.

Then back them up with a high damaged SNEAK attack. Perfect example is Sand Worm and Uraeus at Level 3 for Neutral Monsters. Level 3 for Sandworm to increase his speed in order to reduced the chance he will miss his attacks. He has a high damage but has a higher chance of missing if only at 1 Speed. Uraeus at Level3 to increase his attack to 2.

For Earth Splinter. Use summoner Lyanna Natura. Has a cheaper rental costs which is a good thing to save some DEC. Her ability gives +1 HP to all of his friendly monsters.

The best tank against Llama-Kron combo is Flesh Golem with a Heal ability and also has decent stats. Supported with Wood Nymph and Mushroom Seer. Wood Nymph ability is Tank Heal whichs heals the friendly monster in the first position. Mushroom Seer ability is Silence which reduced magic attacks of all enemy monsters and is good of countering Kron to at least reduced his devastating magic attack when last stand is activated. Then add sneak attacking monsters or ranged attack monsters with high damage depending on the remaining mana available in that battle mana cap. This lineup of earth splinter is which I mostly used when I faced a Llama Kron to at least go head toe to toe with this combo. If you managed to rent more higher level cards then much better to get higher stats and to increase the chance of winning.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS: This is not a guarantee win but at least it has a higher chance of defeating Llama-Kron Combo. If your confident enough with your skills and you can manage this lineup, then you can try it. Me personally, I love using this especially spamming flesh golem as a tank and would nymph as second heal. They are the healing duo that could withstand the burst damage of Kron during Last Stand activates.

So that is all splintermates for my guide using earth and death splinter lineup using Lyanna Natura as your Main Summoner and Owster Rotwell. If you have additional earth & death splinter monsters or neutral monsters thats is also good for this lineup that could help increase the chance of beating Llama-Kron then feel free to comment down below.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Play and try the game so you can experience the game because experience is the best teacher. You will learn gradually about positioning of monster, countering opponents and selection of additional monster aside from the monster shown above. So, play splinterlands and do get experience and feel the thrill of this addictive game. Cheers!

Not bad try these ones as well

This summoner is in essence the kryptonite of the sacred Llama

Or

Of course they have to be leveled up

One of my faves

Since Kron the undying is a mage Nerfing Magic is the way to go, may seem unbeatable but I own the lama mage & Kron the undying they are far from perfect But a devastating combo to be sure.

Higher leveled cards eventually even the playing field, Dragon Splinter seems to be naturally magic resistant the best summoner is in fact Byzantine kitty

The speed advantage combined with healing abilities is tougher to beat Experience is the best teacher after a solid year of playing I welcome loosing to a new card combination.

Good luck in the Splinterlands

A newb like myself really appreciates you sharing your strategy with us so we may be more successful with less pain.
The big takeaway for me is this, try to rent, and then buy the "Scarred Llama Mage" & "Kron the Undying" as they are a hard to defeat combo :-)
