This battle showcased the quality of monsters vs. the number of monsters. I opted for the quality route, and sometimes this doesn't work in your favor, especially if you are going up against a slew of speedy backline monsters. I opted for the high mana cost, high health monsters -> Legionnaire Alvar to lead the line and be the tank and Nerissa Tridawn leading the assault from the backline. Both benefited from the legendary summoner Possibilus the Wise with additional health and abilities. Nerissa Tridawn was overpowered in battle, destroying the opposition's monsters quickly, while Legionnaire Alvar was soaking up all the damage. Super satisfying victory.

Do you like the Nerissa Tridawn? Why or why not?

Many magic monsters rely on abilities to augment their low health or damage; however, for Nerissa Tridawn, it's the opposite. It has no abilities but is made up by having high health and good damage – in effect, and she is relying on her raw power to devastate the opposition. High-health magic monsters are plentiful, but if you are looking for a cheaper Runemancer Florre, another high-health, magic damage, and no abilities monster, Nerissa Tridawn comes at a 10th of the cost.
