The Riftwatcher are Coming!


Amidst the Chaos that has brought only darkness and despair.
A small flicker of light may carry all the world's hope.
The Riftwatchers are coming
And the Splinterlands will never be the same

Hello Splinterlands Community!

Is everyone excited on the upcoming riftwatcher mini set? We'll I am! We have seen as well all the summoners in the riftwatcher set in each element along with the promo card, the leader of the riftwatcher, Oshuur Constantia.
In this post, we will be discussing each summoners that will be introduce in the riftwatcher set and what could be it's impact in the existing monsters in the modern format.


🔥 Fire


Skargore is the new upcoming Fire summoner from the riftwatcher which grants enrage to all monsters. Fire element is known to have many melee monsters which is perfect to have the enrage ability.

Enrage - increased melee attack and speed when damaged. Multiplier x1.5 rounded up.

In my opinion, below are the monsters that will greatly benefit from Skargore's enrage blessing:

Tenyii Striker

Tenyii Striker is one of the great monster card in Fire Splinter with a great speed, damage and health. An enrage ★4 Tenyii Striker could have a 5 melee damage and 5 speed which boost the dodge ability. A ★6 could get 6 melee damage with the same speed and at MAX an 8 melee damage and 6 speed which is a great help as the backfire ability might trigger a lot because of dodge reinforced by a high speed.

Fineas Rage

Fineas Rage is also a good card that is great for enrage. A ★4 can have a 5 melee damage and an 8 speed which is really good in Silver League. A MAX can have a 6 melee damage and a 9 speed. It can dodge a lot of physical attack.

Other monsters will also benefit on the enrage but these two cards are the one I think will benefit the most because of high speed,health and damage. Radiated Brute in silver league will also benefit from this but higher league Radiated Brute does have the enrage ability. The only problem being enrage is that if hitting a monster with forcefield, an enrage monster with a 5 or more damage could only damage 1.


💧 Water


Aquatus from the water element provides a backfire ability that is totally helpful. Water is know to have a great speed.

Backfire - if an enemy misses the monsters with the attack, the attacker takes 2 damage

In my opinion, below are the monsters that have high speed can greatly benefit from the backfire ability:

Diemonshark is a great tank that have a high stats especially when enrage. Adding up the backfire ability strengthen Diemonshark because once enraged, the diemonshark speed goes higher which gives a high probability to evade physical attack.

Giant Squid

Screen Shot 2022-09-09 at 11.51.18 PM.png

Giant Squid will contribute better than Flying Squid because of the blind ability which is available already at ★4 while Flying Squid do have higher speed but the blind ability is unlocked at ★6. A blind ability and a backfire ability is a great combination.

Serpent of Eld

Screen Shot 2022-09-09 at 11.00.08 PM.png

With the dodge ability, Serpent of Eld is a good choice for backfire ability. A melee monster in the frontline missed attacking Serpent of Eld then receiving a backfire damage and range monsters receiving return fire damage. Serpent of Eld is pretty good to have in the frontline if there is no magic involve.

Phantom of the Abyss

Screen Shot 2022-09-09 at 11.01.08 PM.png

The last but not the least, Phantom of the Abyss is the greatest benefactor for the backfire damage. A Flying ability, a 6 speed and a dodge ability at ★1 then adding a backfire ability is truly a great combination.

There are other monsters with great speed such as Oshannus and Tide Biter that are great as well to use for the backfire ability that Aquatus can offer. Aquatus is really amazing summoner than can add some spice to the water element.


🍃 Earth


Fernheart from the earth element finally gives a close range attack for those range monsters in the earth splinter. Not only that it allows close range but also gives additional health. This is an upgraded Lyanna.

Close Range - can perform range attacks from the first position

In my opinion, below are the monsters that will benefit from Fernheart ability:

Venari Seedsmith

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 1.12.37 AM.png

Venari Seedsmith with the scavenger ability can be place in the last position so that when it comes to the first position, the health is high due to scavenger. Seedsmith damage is also very scary and devastating plus the poison it can inflict when ★5 or above.

Goblin Tower

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 1.13.33 AM.png

Goblin Tower is a good choice for reverse speed as the speed of this monster is constant at 1 and the range damage it deals grow stronger and stronger everytime this card is leveled up. The blast damage is also an awesome ability for this card. Attacking from the frontline is a good benefit for this card as this have armors and devastating attack.

Vampiric Blossom

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 1.13.48 AM.png

Another monster card that is nice to have a close range ability as this can provide great damage especially with the death blow. This card at MAX can be use in the noxious fumes ruleset because of the immunity.

Iza The Fanged

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 1.14.51 AM.png

Iza The Fanged is one of the undervalued card in the Chaos Legion. Thanks you Fernheart, Iza is now loved and because of its sneak and stun ability. It can destroy the enemies from the rear. The scavenger ability will definitely allow Iza the Fanged to survive in the battle.

Mitica Headhunter, Hunter Jarx and Acid Shooter are the other cards that can benefit from this monsters including some range cards in the neutral such as Supply Runner.




Ilthain on the otherhand from the Life splinter boost the speed of Life monsters and the return fire can be against Yodin, General Sloan and Fernheart.

Return Fire - when hit with a range attack, monsters will return fire with reduced damage back to their attacker. Damaged return is equal to the damage of attacker divided by 2, rounded up.

Overall this buffs is good to have in any of the Life monsters but I think below monsters were the great benefactor for this:

Chaos Knight

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 2.05.06 AM.png

Chaos Knight with the shield ability is great to have the return fire ability to reflect some range damage. Chaos Knight could be a great tank that can substitute to Shieldbearer however it has no taunt.

Uriel The Purifier

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 2.05.48 AM.png

Uriel The Purifier is one of the great tank that are commonly use in the life splinter. an additional skill that can reflect damage from the attacker is a good add-ons.

Hero of Beyond

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 2.06.14 AM.png

With the shield ability, last stand and close range ability, Hero of Beyond frontline gaming is truly awesome. By giving an additional ability which is return fire will generally improve this monsters capability.

Pelacor Conjurer, Warrior of Peace and Blinding Reflector were also a good benefactor of the Return fire by allowing Warrior of Peace to deal some damage, Pelacor Conjurer and Blinding Reflector deals not only for magic but also for range damage.


💀 Death


Dallan who gives the cripple ability from the death splinter seems to be really nice as well especially that the cripple effect will be corrected and won't be cure by the cleanse. This means that a cripple ability sounds good for those healing monsters.

In the post of Yukihyakubai regarding Merdhampir Life leech and cripple ability it is a pretty nice that even an armored monsters were reduced the life by 1.

In my opinion, anyone from the Death Splinter monster is really nice to have this but I am leaning towards the three life leechers Venari Bonesmith, Life Sapper and Ancient Lich as they keeps on sucking the enemies health, the maximum health of the enemy is reduced.

The Life Leechers

🐲 Dragon


Sthispa from the Dragon element seems to be a powerful summoner which is against magic user elements as this monster provide Phase.

Phase - magic attack can missed (using the same hit/miss calculation as for Melee and Range attacks)

Since the dragon element can summon other elements, the water element with the high speed are very compatible with this monster such as Diemonshark, Serpent of Eld, Phantom of the Abyss, Tide Biter and etc. For other elements, as long as it does have a high speed it is good to have this Phase ability such as Regal Peryton from the earth element.

For the Dragon monsters, there are quite a pretty good choice to have this phase:

Naga Assassin

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 2.45.55 AM.png

Naga Assassin is a pretty quick dragon monster in which it can be use to have a phase to avoid magic damage.

Dragon Jumper

Screen Shot 2022-09-10 at 2.55.52 AM.png

Dragon Jumper would be awesome to have this ability as well in order to protect itself from magic attack.

Some dragon monsters such as Robo Dragon Knight is also great but the speed is not that high.


⚔️ Verdict

The summoners from the riftwatcher is really great and could provide more strategies and new lineup in the ever growing splinterlands card list.

These summoners add spices and excitement to the battlefield and it is good to have those as the riftwatcher is only limited to 3M packs containing 43 different cards with 13 commons, 12 rares, 6 epic summoners and 12 legendary not including the leader of the riftwatcher, Oshuur Constantia.
