SHARE YOUR BATTLE Weekly Challenge! DRAGONS
One of the shortest but also most amazing battles I ever had. The star of this battle is the Desert Dragon.
Edition: CHAOS LEGION
Ruleset and line-up:
Stampede - The Trample ability can trigger multiple times per attack if the trampled Monster is killed
Explosive Weaponry - All Monsters have the Blast ability
Mana Cap of 13.
Available Splinters - Earth and Dragon
Summoner: Daria Dragonscale(+1 to all Melee damage)
1. Desert Dragon - Tank, Melee Damage Dealer with the Trample, Pierce and Retaliate abilities
2. Fungus Fiend - Melee Damage Dealer
3. Naga Assassin - Ranged Damage Dealer with the Backfire ability
Using Monsters with Retaliate and Backfire to hopefully make the enemy Monsters attack themselves by triggering those abilities.
Position 1 - Desert Dragon:
Not very tanky but a Powerhouse that comes with 3 abilities at this level. Hopefully the opponent has a lot of melee attacks and I get lucky on the retaliate.
Position 2 - Fungus Fiend:
Placed in this position to protect the Naga - or the Desert Dragon from one Blast attack.
Position 3 - Naga Assassin:
Nice Sneak protection because of the high speed a good chance to dodge attacks and hurt the attackers with the Backfire ability.
Not as many melee attackers as I hoped, but the first opponents attack triggers a retaliate...
Round 2... ehh still Round 1?
You have to see it to believe it, without even using its own attack, Desert Dragon wipes out the entire team.
I want to say my strategy worked but it is more like - my mind was blown. I didn't really think of the Stampede ruleset and had my eyes completely on the Retaliate ability + Blast. I was pretty surprised when the Desert Dragon just trampled through the enemy lines like there is no tomorrow.
The Dragon Splinter is my favorite, the fact that you only need 1 high level summoner to possibly get access to all high level cards is really nice.
