This week's battle challenge is the Mycelic Morphoid.

Weekly Challenge! MYCELIC MORPHOID

Lets start by examining the card.

This card is a one mana earth common melee card from the chaos edition. This a great cheap tank to take a hit allowing you protect your other cards. It is also great for low mana battles.


OverallThe Morphoid is a cheap tank to take the first hit in the front line, from sneak, or opportunity attacks.
Health EqualizerTurn your one mana card into a strong tank allowing you to add more cards then using a higher level melee card as a tank
Super SneakThis allows you to add some more damage or you can place this Morphoid in the back to eat the first sneak attack.
Armored UpThe extra armor allows your Morphoid to take an extra hit from melee or range.
MylorWhile not a rule set Morphoid pairs well with Mylor prior to level three to take a hit and return the thorns damage. At level three Morphoid gets throns on his owns.

Level One Mycelic Morphoid

The Morphoid gain thorns at level 3.

Level Thre Mycelic Morphoid


For this battle it was a 23 mana melee only battle where trample would trigger more than once. Life and Death were inactive with all the other splinter active.

  • I decided to use Mylor since it was melee only.
  • I used Mycelic Infantry as my front line tank to reduce the damage coming in.
  • I used Uraeus and the Battering Ram.
  • I used the Fiend and Morphoid to protect my back line. Though I did make a mistake here since Uraeus, the Fiend, and Morphoid all had the same health I need to put the Fiend or Morphoid in front of Uraeus to protect him.
  • I had a second tank with the Xenith Monk

    Round 5


Mylor was the right call for this battle. The Morphoid as well as the other cards we have provided targets for the Deep Lurker to kill it's self on. While the MVP of this battle was the Infantry the Morphoid provided some utility. The take away from this battle is my Xenith Monk was wasted mana but my opponent had been able to get through my Infantry he would have been there to jump to the front.
