Share Your Battle - INSANE win with the Delwyn Dragonscale Summoner 😲🤩

Hey everyone,

I've spend the last days trying to get back up to silver III which has been more difficult than I thought. I never had real problems to conquer the bronze leagues. But since the release of the Chaos Legion cards it has become way harder, I actually wrote a quite furious post about it. So I decided to rent some cards that would help me get up more easily.

That plan went really well so far and my last game yesterday was just insane. I never had a game where I've won in such an epic way, so I thought: Let's share it with the Splinterlands community. I also uploaded a video of the match onto my new Youtube channel.

So buckle up, get ready for some crazy Splinterlands action and let's go!

The rule set

The mana cap was 99, so I could play all the cards I wanted to use in this battle. A 99 mana cap is pretty rare nowadays (at least for me), so I was happy to encounter one again. I just love playing without any mana restrictions because that way I can choose whatever card seems like an improvement for my team, no matter the mana costs.

There was one rule: Broken Arrows - No monsters with ranged attack could be used. That was not a big problem for me because I mainly play with melee or magic attack monsters anyways.

Allowed Elements: Fire/Life/Dragon. I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of the life team, although it has become more attractive since the new Chaos Legion cards dropped. So I thought of using the fire team at first but then I saw my Delwyn Dragonscale dragon summoner and decided to go with him because I love increased magic attack. So I checked both teams for magic monsters and the life team had the way better magic cards. That's why I chose the dragon summoner combined with the life element.

My lineup

I've bought the Summoner Delwyn Dragonscale shortly after the release of the new Chaos Legion cards because Alric Stormbringer was kicked out of the base set of cards which can be played without owning / renting them. He was one of my favorite summoners because I liked his ability to increase all magic attacks of my own monsters. Buying him was not an option because he is really expensive (currently $149). That's why I bought Delwyn - he has the same ability and I can use him with every team. So I could play him in combination with the life team this round and increase the magic attack of all my monsters 🤩


The Kralus is a super strong card with 1 magic attack, 2 melee attack and 3 speed (Idk why the attack stats look like this, @splinterlands: Could you fix that? I used this link). He's the perfect tank monster for the first position because of his 12 health and 5 armor - he can take a lot of damage and is immune to negative status effects. He also has the flying ability which increases the chances to be missed by other monsters. What I really like about this card is that it has melee attack and also magic attack - which got increase because of my summoner. I've rented this card for ~ 11 DEC, absolutely worth it! 12 mana is a lot though...



Then there's the Djinn Renova. It's actually the cheapest card of this lineup (currently worth $0.80), although I don't know why. Sure, 7 mana is a lot but 2 magic attack (in my case increased to 3) and the Strengthen ability that gives all friendly monsters +1 health is an awesome addition to my team. 6 health is also not that bad. I decided to use this monster because I thought one extra health for every monsters would be a great way to increase my winning chances. And the 3 magic attack is also a nice extra :)



Another rented card. Unfortunately the stats are not displayed on the card picture I found here. Bila the Radiant has 2 magic attack as well and 5 health. What made her an even bigger improvement for me team is her ability: Life Leech - Every time she deals damage her health will increase in proportion to dealt damage. That way her health will go up during the game and she will be harder to defeat. All in all a great card to add to my team 😄





Adelade Brightwing is the only legendary card I have received from the > 30 Chaos Legion packs I've opened so far. To play this card you have to spend 7 mana which was not a problem in this match because of the 99 mana cap. She has 2 magic attack as well which turned into another attack of 3. Her health is not huge but she has the flying ability which might help to avoid a lot of damage beeing dealt to her. The repair ability will restore some armor of my backline monster - but more about that later.



Magi of Chaos is a neutral card from the Chaos Legion edition. He has no abilities but 2 magic attack which was perfect for my team. The good thing about him is that he can be played with every element and I could use him in this match because of that. Therefore, he was a good choice for my lineup. I also like to play with him when I use the Obsidian summoner (earth team) but only when the mana cap is quite high.





The last monster on my team is the Shieldbearer. I don't actually own him but I can still use him as he is part of the base set of cards. Why did I place him on the last position? Because that way I am well protected against Sneak monster which attack the last monster on the team. And then there's his Taunt ability which will cause that all monster will attack him first (if possible). That way he can protect my other monsters. Remember when I wrote that Adelade Brightwing can restore some armor? This makes the Shieldbearer even stronger. He can't use his melee attack but that's not a problem because I already have so much magic attack.

The match

I almost feel bad for my opponent - He/She had no chance to win this match. I was able to win after just 3 rounds without losing any monsters and nearly taking any damage at all. That's remarkable.

You can rewatch the match here.

Did my strategy work?

Absolutely. Well, I guess that's pretty obvious - at least if you watched the match. I wouldn't change one thing because under the given rule set this lineup was perfect and I guess any opponent would had big problems defeating me under this circumstances. One thing's for sure though: I won't be playing this team often in the future because it requires a lot of mana (53 in total). Having such a high mana cap is pretty rare (altough I hope it would be more common). The other problem is that I rented a lot of these cards just for one day to get back to silver, so I could play with my higer lvl cards again. But this way I won't be able to play 2 of the cards I have used in this match unless I rent them again or invest some money and buy them.


This is my entry for this weeks Share Your Battle challenge. The theme was Spineback Turtle (which I haven't used) but I thought sharing this Delwyn Dragonscale match would be much more exciting 😅

Das hätte auch anders laufen können wenn der Gegner Karte gehabt hätte die Magie mininiert und ggf nen Sumoner der Magie Attacke zurückschlägt.

Hatte aber auch schon paar Spiele wo ich keine Karte verloren habe.

Deine Karte an Position 1 ist aber auch ganz schon fies.

Klar, dafür hätte aber schon ziemlich viel schiefgehen müssen. Ich sag nicht, dass das Team unschlagbar ist, aber leicht zu besiegen eben auch nicht :)

Ja, die Karte hat es in sich. Kostet aber eben auch 12 Mana, habe die Karte aber eh nur gemietet

Kenne leider oft es schief geht. Ich bin da erst mal soweit raus, werde irgendwann später nochmal versuchen zu spielen.

Viel Glück weiterhin.
