Splinterlands - A Whole Lot Of Magic Defense??



I am a big fan of magic attacking monsters. Ever since I played Alric Stormbringer I have mainly added water and neutral magic monsters as much as I could. With silver league the wins with magic came much easier than gold. Now I find myself in gold league losing more than what I like to. I overlooked at the Chaos legendary and now come to realize all splinters buts have cards that can by design be nullifying magic attacks.

Chaos Legendaries

From neutral's Legionnaire Alvar, or fire's Grum Flameblade, and death's Djinn Muirat they all have void armor. Then there is life's summoner Grandmaster Rathe with void armor.

When I play matches I tend to forget how good void armor becomes until I face it in battle. In high mana battles it becomes very apparent that cards with void armor are great to use.

To further stack against magic monsters there is Baakjira with void.

It all just seems a strong wall against magic and I have been overlooking Chaos cards when playing in Gold league. This was not as bad during silver league but now having a lot of difficulty getting through with magic setups.

Legacy Cards Never Had Void Armor

Just to be clear no cards before the Chaos series besides rewards Chain Spinner were there any cards that had void armor. It makes sense why in the past I was performing better with a magic focused deck. Now there is balance with Chaos.

Piercing

One way to get through the defense is the Piercing ability.

  • If Melee or Ranged attack damage is in excess of the target's Armor, the remainder will damage the target's Health.

The focus is to knock out opponents with void and void armor in order to take out the remainder of formations.

In addition have higher speed would allow my monsters to inflict damage first and hopefully get the knockout.

Conclusions

In formations where my intention is to go with magic focused formations I will have to anticipate on attacking through void armor from now on. Majority of players own Chaos cards so I have to assume the top players in gold will likely have plenty of cards with void armor.

Until next time thanks for reading!!!

That would be one seriously stacked battle in terms of being able to take damage! What's really awesome is how low cost cards are at the moment and the ability to build out a rather powerful deck and start playing is honestly less if not the same as going out and buying packs of pokemon cards.

A lot of players were running out the door in Splinterlands last week so prices were even lower then. I am waiting for another FUD moment where more players sell and start snatching cards I am missing. !LOL !WINE

I really like to play with magic in the water deck, and whenever I can I use a card with the empty ability, it really helps a lot, a tank with good life, with shield and empty is a very good card.

Those cards have been quite useful and I really do like Grum (minus his low speed). I should probably go buy some cards because I have been taking some profits from GLX. I have been using up my rental income on those cards based on the burn rate though. Either way, I want to start building my chaos legion decks a bit more to make sure things go well.

Yeah, I also noticed that mages aren't as sweet to play as they used to be. 😜 !LOLZ Also, because of the multitude of cards, you can now see a completely non-obvious enemy lineup, especially if you start from his last five battles...
