Splinterlands Weekly Challenge - The speed and agility of the Fire Spitter
Hello Splinterlords 💗
This time it is using a really useful card in battle, corresponding to one of my favorite Splinters, I'm talking about nothing more and nothing less than the "Dragon" team. I'm trying to keep up with the game despite my internet failures, but with the constancy that I have had this week I have returned to the leagues where I was last year and to which I was accustomed, this motivates me to continue growing as a player and also adapt to changes in any kind of situation.
I want to thank the entire team of @splinterlands and especially @carrieallen, in making it possible for us players to continue motivated to create content of this wonderful game and not only that, continue to invest to generate more profits and reach the top sharing the podium with the best players that the platform has seen. This battle was a challenge, but I was able to take advantage of several of my best cards to adapt the Fire Spitter to my strategy, since, whenever I can use this monster I do it, this is due to its great abilities and benefits that it gives me on the battlefield.
Now let's get to know this letter in depth, come with me...
This is a wonderful card of the "Epic" type of the most powerful Splinter of the game which is the Dragon, at least this is my opinion of course. What is really true is that this is an invaluable card in battle and very useful for all the features that compose it and that I will detail below according to the level at which I use it to meet the challenge: First of all, it is a card to summon with very low mana, specifically only 4, which makes it easier to use it in any combination, at level 3 that I own it, it has a fairly strong ranged attack strength, granting it 3 points of damage, it also has an incredible speed equal to 4 points and the ability to fly that allows it to dodge the largest number of melee attacks that are propelled at it. If you observe well, they are a very good skills that knowing how to take advantage of them in battle will bring most of the times the victory.
This was a short battle, but it showed the best strategy. I particularly always seek to win my challenges, I do not like to lose, although I learn from these defeats, however, knowing how to use the rules of battle in your favor combined with the skills of your cards is crucial to be able to have the victory. This is exactly what I did, I used several of my best cards looking for a combination between them and that, in addition, these benefited from the rules of battle, which made me synchronize very well and my opponent had the slightest chance to win this duel. This is the way I think about every battle and the way I win most of them, many players, just get carried away by the order and that is the mistake they make.
Rule of my battle
Equalizer and Taking Sides with 24 Mana
- Mana: 24
- Equalizer: The initial Health of all Monsters is equal to that of the Monster on either team with the highest base Health.
- Taking Sides: Neutral Monsters may not be used in battles.
This was my chosen summoner for this battle despite having another option which was my Delwyn, it was a very wise decision to use it, first because, of the summoners I own it is the one that has less mana consto, second it is an "Epic" type summoner, which allowed me to use the level of my cards to the maximum in this battle and third allowed me to take advantage of its great ability to give all the monsters in my field an additional melee hit point in order to increase the damage as much as possible while the battle was going on.
I decided to combine my dragon Splinter with my water team, all in order to be able to use the abilities of some very specific cards, such as one of my very low mana tanks par excellence called "Spineback Turtle". This is a very good card and I decided to place it in the first position because of its great defensive power constituted by 4 points of shield and 14 points of life. This high life is thanks to the battle rule called "Equalizer", which gave my turtle a very strong resistance thanks to the Kraken that my opponent used as a tank, something that I suspected my opponent would do. In addition to this, my monster has the "Thorns" ability, which causes direct damage to whoever attacks it, decreasing its life by 2 points.
Ruler Of The Seas
One of my favorite cards of the water team I own and in my opinion one of the strongest and most useful of all this Splinter. I placed it in second position because of its great attack power and speed, since I have it at level 2, I also knew that my Ruler would also get a good amount of life thanks to the battle rule, this made me think that I could use its great abilities and power, to easily accompany my tank in the task of being my front of attack and / or defense against my opponent. In addition to this, one of the strategies I thought of, was to use his ability to increase the speed of my entire team to take advantage in attack and that the speed of the monsters of my opponent would not take me by surprise and finally use his ability to "Blast", to destroy the replacement tank of my opponent and thus weaken much faster his entire team.
I decided to place this card in the third position so that he could have a little more time on the field, this so he could use his "Sneak" ability and weaken my opponent's background team, something that I could not achieve if they immediately defeated my Turtle and he went to the front as a backup for my tank. So I decided to protect him in this position to give him much more attack time and take advantage of the melee power that my Daria gave him, this together with the speed given by my Ruler, would ensure me to attack first and take advantage of my opponent.
My card in the penultimate position could not be more than this, a very good monster and always as far as possible I try to be present in any strategy. This is due to its ability called "Tank Heal", which provides protection and recovery in each turn to the tank that is in turn at that time, something that came like a glove when I saw the battle rule and the increase of life of all my cards thanks to the monster with the highest life in the field, last but not least, this card also has a ranged attack that despite not being so strong can exercise the two roles of attack and defense that every team should have.
Finally the star card of this challenge. I used it in the last position because of its strong ranged attack, but this was not the only reason, as I told you that it has the ability to fly and also has an incredible speed that allows it to easily dodge the enemies that attack it in melee, which easily counteracts the attacks of my opponent with the ability of "Sneak". This would allow me to protect practically my entire team giving me an almost perfect defense and allowing the rest of my cards to do their job, demonstrating the synchronicity of my team in conjunction with the rules of the battle, which makes it in my opinion the most important card of this strategy and this lineup.
My strategy worked perfectly, my opponent never stood a chance with this lineup, as I combined the abilities of my monsters with the rules of the battle, specifically with the "Equalizer". This allowed me to take a step ahead of my opponent, knowing that he would be looking to use a card with the highest health energy to give his entire team the same. This was what he did not intuit and what I was able to use to perfection against him.
In another opportunity I will be able to demonstrate the many combinations that the Fire Spitter provides in battle, its low mana to summon it allows me to think of many strategies that seek to combine with the rules of battle and in the end give me the advantage against my opponent, it is a truly useful card and easy to use.
I use this card very often, as long as the battle rules allow me, as I said, it is a card that can be adapted to all kinds of strategies and with a great power of attack and speed can always give me the advantage in a certain way in the field. Without a doubt I recommend this card and in this challenge it can show the great power it has.
