This week we have the new Battle Mage Secrets weekly challenge with the ruleset Aimless.
Normally you might target the rear or the front of your enemy for an attack, and then aimless comes along and throws that out of the window! What is even more to remember is that the aimless ability can also hit camoflaged monsters too! What a double whammy! That low mana hidden monster that you used to put tucked away at the end is no longer protected!!
On to this week's battle.
This is a low mana battle and I therefore need some good attacking and healing power.
|Mother Khala||Extra health|
|Xenith Monk||Healing ability|
|Celestial Harpy||Low cost melee attack|
|Uraeus||Low cost melee attac and poison|
|Soul Fiend||0 mana melee attack|
The rules for the battle are:
|Little League||Only monsters that cost 4 mana or less may be used.|
|Reverse Speed||Monsters with the lowest speed attack first and have the highest chance to evade attack.|
|Aimless||All monsters have the scattershot ability|

ROUND 1 - Xenith Monk vs. Pelacor Conjurer
My main consideration was to have a tank with some heal ability, so that he could survive whilst the scattershot game played on with the backrow monsters.
Stepping into the tank role here is the mighty Xenith Monk who I have recently upgraded as he becomes quite formidable with his heal ability. For my scattershot attack, I have opted for Uraeus and Harpy who should provide some decent attack on the enemy spraying poison everywhere!
In the first round, both Fiends fall along with my opponent's Chaos Agent.
In round 3, the Harpy's scattershot targets on my Xenith Monk but luckily for me, he has 8 health and survives. Unluckily for the Harpy, Uraeus takes her out and Stitch Leech is on his own.
With the reverse speed ruleset, Stitch Leech should be faster plus will gain 2 health for each attack. Not only that, with a 3 attack score, he could be pretty lethal. There is no worry about the scattershot ruleset anymore, all attacks will hit the tanks.
In round 4, Stitch Leech's attack isn't strong enough to trouble Xenith Monk and he receives a blow from both my monsters. Not only that, Uraeus delivers some lethal poison that drops at the start of round 5 to finish off Stitch Leech. It's all over.
Other things to consider are to add monsters with the repair or heal ability, this could help protect some monsters who lose their shield or health and help keep them alive longer.

I like using cards with double strike in am aimless battle. The celestial harpy has a flight ability if it was against a melee of range, I guess you weren't just lucky. Good game nonetheless.
That is a great tactic, the double-strike monsters have caused my downfall more than a few times!
Hahaha it's very useful in such games especially if they hit the right card that needs hitting
