Splinterlands Weekly Challenge - Crystal Jaguar


Good evening hivers! For this week we got a life splinter common monster, the crystal jaguar from the untamed edition. I'm not too fond of using low mana tanks but here we go ^^

Theme: Crystal Jaguar



Lineup & Strategy

Summoner:

Daria Dragonscale
Since the crystal jaguar only has 1 melee damage, I use daria to empower it a bit.

First Position:

Crystal Jaguar
This monster has decent health and good speed for only 4 mana. I like how it has 1 shield, increasing its survivability.

Second Position:

Manticore
This has become my favorite card to place in the second position, for only 4 mana as well, it has decent speed, flying, reach, good health and 2 damage at level 2.

Third Position:

Pelacor Conjurer
I placed this card at the third position to protect the rest of my team against snipe attacks. For only 2 mana I got a 4 health card with flying and 3 speed.

Fourth Position:

Venari Crystalsmith
Another card in the life splinter that heals the tank. I love it. I see it as an improved version of the Divine Healer card.

Fifth Position:

Feral Spirit
I like the synergy this card has with my summoner. This card helps me do some damage to my opponent's backline.

Sixth Position:

Naga Assassin
At the last position, I placed Naga Assassin. A low health and low mana monster with high speed, hoping to get a few misses on it.

My strategy for this battle was to avoid using magic monsters, since my opponent's last battles used tanks with void armor, so I went for a melee/ranged approach. Besides, the battle condition was weak magic anyway.

Battle Conditions

Mana: 23
The conditions for the battle were Weak Magic (Magic Attacks hit armor before reducing health) and it was a 23 mana battle with any splinter. except the Water Splinter


Round 1

My summoner got neutralized by his summoner. Our monsters interchanged blows but no monster fell this round.


Round 2

2.jpg

At the start of round 2, my tank was almost done for, his Soul Storm card killed my Crystal Jaguar. I got a lucky miss with my Naga Assassin. My Feral Spirit killed his Death Elemental and my Venari Crystalsmith killed his tank.


Round 3

3.jpg

My Manticore killed his Undead Badger this round.


Round 4

4.jpg

His Soulstorm attacked first and killed my Manticore, and my ranged monsters attacked his Dark Ferryman.


Round 5

5.jpg

Naga Assassin attacked the Dark Ferryman and then the Venari Crystalsmith healed my Pelacor Conjurer, and finished the Dark Ferryman.


Round 6

On round 6 the battle was already over, his ranged monster couldn't attack me anymore, and my monsters made short work of it.


Conclusion

I believe the Crystal Jaguar is a good card when there is not enough mana to summon a more powerful tank. It survived the first round on this battle. I'm sure that if I had the armorsmith card on my battlefield he would of lasted more. I was playing on the bronze league though, since the thorns ability gets unlocked at level 4, I could only use it if I was in the silver league. This battle would of been easier if I had the thorns ability on the Crystal Jaguar though, since that is a really powerful ability to have. I'll have to get to silver and check it out ^^,

Thanks for reading, and if you found this interesting, please leave me an upvote, thanks!

Love the chrystal jaguar! On higher levels he has thorns ability as well which comes in handy with baby mana battles where you can't play earth.
