Theme: Haunted Spider
Lineup & Strategy
A full offensive strategy with mostly melee damage to take advantage of my summoner's buff.
The conditions for the battle were Standard and it was a 22 mana battle with any splinter.
My opponent used the Water Splinter and used the common magic strategy. I had no defense against magic, so it was a matter of who killed the other one first.
I had a speed advantage against my opponent, so my monsters went first. I got lucky he didn't use the new water card, Venari Wavesmith, or I would of been in trouble. But his monsters had little health so I thought I could win at first glance.
My nightmare attacked first, doing 3 damage to the Peaceful Giant and 2 blast damage to the Spineback Turtle, and my Manticore did 3 more damage to the Peaceful Giant. His 3 magic monsters did -2 damage each to my Nightmare, and my Uraeus killed his last monster with a powerful 3 damage hit. My Haunted Spider did -2 damage and killed the Peaceful Giant. Lastly, the Spineback Turtle did -1 damage to my tank.
On round 2, Nightmare and Manticore killed the Spineback Turtle and Medusa got -2 damage from Nightmare's blast, his magic monsters killed my Nightmare. The match would of been over this round, but Uraeus missed against the Ice Pixie. The Haunted Spider killed Medusa though.
Ice Pixie attacked my Manticore and then died to it.
