Splinterlands Astral Entity Airdrop


As the packs continued to get burned, the airdrop for the 5th Chaos Legion Legendary Summoner Airdrop has happened. I have had no luck in the previous airdrops and with 500 packs, I have only gotten 1 Possiblius and 2 Astral Entities. Given my packs, I would have anywhere between 80-95% chance of getting one and the probabilities were not on my side. Maybe things are turning around because I did manage to get two of these cards this time around.

Astral Entity

This is a legendary summoner for the death splinter type that costs 6 mana. It comes with -2 Armor, dodge and resurrect. Overall, the abilities might not be the best but I can definitely see that they could be quite useful. Just having -2 armor benefits any melee or ranged monsters. The dodge will make it survive longer against melee or ranged. The resurrect can be quite helpful because it will give a monster a chance to attack again or become a filler monster. If you want to know about the lore, then you can visit the Astral Entity Lore post. It's worth about $20 as of right now.

Attempting the card in fights

While the card looks great, I just can't seem to win many matches with this card in Silver league. The biggest issue that I have with it is that my death cards are too weak when limited to a level 1 Astral Entity. One of the fights that I have with it is the one above and I still lost the match. The fight can be found here. I just don't think my death deck is strong enough with a level 1 legendary summoner as I lost quite a few useful abilities due to the level cap that I can use. I can definitely see the uses for this card but I can't justify really using it due to my bad win rate and the limitations on card levels.

I did win one fight using it but it was way too close and you can find the match here. I barely won this fight and stun was the thing that saved me. I was lucky to stun quite a few times towards the end and it gave me a chance to move up his ranged monsters to the front-line. This allowed me to win and I did notice that the extra dodges that I got were quite nice. Even with the swiftness from supply runner, the melee and ranged monsters missed quite often. The result of the match can be found below. However, I gave up the poison ability on Venari Bonesmith and +1 magic on my revealer. The +1 magic wouldn't have mattered due to the summoner my opponent used but I find that level cap limitation quite annoying.


Astral Entity doesn't look like a bad card to have but it doesn't really fit my deck that well. The level limitation is quite annoying and I don't know if it does more harm than good for my own deck. Out of 5 matches that I used Astral Entity in, I lost 4 of them and I only won 1 match. Overall, I don't think I will be keeping it around much and I will probably leave it for the rental bot to rent out.

What do you think about this card and did you get one in the airdrop?
