Battle Challenge: Scavo Firebolt
Today I decided to participate in the daily challenge featuring Scavo Firebolt. This is a monster I haven't used for a while so it was a good opportunity to get to know it better.
Let's take a look:
Right now my Scavo card is at level 1 with a BCX of 3. That means I'm short on two cards to upgrade it to level 2. At the moment Scavo Firebolt is trading at $0.14 or about 120 DEC. Upgrading would bring his speed to 3 and that way help to dodge attacks in the backline.
On level 1 Scavo Firebolt has pretty good stats, 2 ranged attack, 2 speed, and 4 health. Costing 4 mana points, he falls to the Little League category where only monsters with 4 or less mana can be used.
This card below is probably the biggest reason why I haven't been using Scavo Firebolt that much. Lava Spider has pretty similar stats at level one lacking 1 ranged attack point but is also cheaper when it comes to mana. Perhaps the biggest reason why I always choose Lava Spider over Scavo Firebolt is the Snipe ability. Snipe quests aren't my favorite ones and this card has really helped me to get them done.
Preparing For The Battle
My hooded opponent had been using Life and Death splinters recently. Usually, in low mana battles, my opponents choose death so I went with the thought that this was no exception. I was going to face Thaddius Brood, a death summoner with reducing magic and health as debuffs. That's why I chose Tarsa as my summoner to counter that with +1 health and +1 melee. My idea was mainly to use melee monsters so I would benefit from Tarsas buff.
Choosing My Monsters
Ok, so my opponent chose
death life splinter as I thought he or she would choose. There are three ranged monsters in the back each getting an upgrade to their attack because of General Sloans, the hippo summoners buff. In the front is Xenith Monk, a self-healing monster.

Results and Final Thoughts
Antoid Platoon filled their purpose perfectly. Even though they didn't survive the battle they managed to take hits, dodge them and deliver damage. Scavo Firebolt and Battering Ram finished the other monsters, and even Flame Monkey did get to see some action!
After this battle, I have a feeling that I'm going to upgrade Scavo Firebolt to level 2 and think about replacing Lava Spider with him in these low mana battles. Even though Lava Spider has that Snipe ability, Scavo Firebolt does more damage. And we all like damage.
That's all, thank you for reading!
