~ 😘 Hi Hi Splinterlands lovers around the world 😘 ~
Welcome back to my blog, @queen-silvia. In the previous posts, we have some battle strategies at Silver and Gold league. If you are interested and didn't check it yet, the posts can be seen here :

In this article, I am going to share Battle strategies at Bronze league. Many people said that Bronze and Novice are the most difficult league since the ability of the card is very limited so RNG often decides the outcome of the match, Is it true?
Hmm... I think it's not 100% right since we can still think the best strategy to defeat our opponent although the ability is limited but if the mana is small like 17 and earth is available, people tend to use Llama-Kron or Llama-Grund since there's no counter in that match, so yes sometimes RNG takes important role to decide which player will win the match.
Alright, The top 5 strategies that we are going to discuss in depth are :
- The Llama-Kron counter : Immortal void tank monster + Tank heal and Cripple ability
- Use Dragon summoner in high mana battle (not always, depend on ruleset)
- How to win match between Yodin vs Yodin
- How to beat Byzantine Kitty in Noxious Fumes
- Beating Yodin using Daria Dragonscale team
At the beginning of this article, I will share the result of the first and final round of the tournament and... at the end, there will be a giveaway #48 to grab. Let's get started !
- TOURNAMENT RESULT -
Here is the result of Round 1 tournament :
At the first round, I was at the same group with : @angstgegner
. I took 2 L from the match against Byzantinist and jaki01. Both of the matches will be explained in may battle strategies. I will also share the battle against jacekw when I could beat Byzantine Kitty in Noxious Fume ruleset using Bortus.
And here is the result of final round :
The tournament took the best 40% players and Here is all of my opponents at the final round :
@cyguy, @thanksforplaying, @pladozero, @athunderstruck, @tj70903, @hungryfortacos, @marianaemilia, @babypuppy, @blastedzeus, @coppersmith, @calynn
I took 1 L from the battle against coppersmith, it was the battle between Obsidian and Byzantine Kitty. I should have used Byzantine Kitty as well in that match since the mana is very high (60). In the battle where mana is very high, it's highly recommended to use dragon splinter because they have very high attack and defence compared to the average of other splinters. For all those players above, thank you so much for playing with me. I wish you all the best in the next tournament.
One thing that makes me really satisfied with the outcome of the tournament is that I was second and the top 10 were consist of 5 Immortal Gods players, 3 Summoner's Tribe players and 1 for each (KOG) Guardians of Glory and Guild of Neoxian. Immortal Gods are always pretty strong in tournaments which gives high prize and we often see the top 10 were filled by Immortal Gods the second was always Summoner's Tribe Guild. Now let's move into the battle strategy.
- LLAMA-KRON COUNTER : STRONG VOID TANK MONSTER + TANK HEAL & CRIPPLE -
One of the superiority of Llama-Kron is the ability to restore 6 health point in each round, this ability can be countered using cripple ability to reduce the maximum HP that can be restored in each round. For example, at the first round, Llama-Kron has 18 HP and restore 6 HP, after being attacked by cripple ability, the base health point will reduce 1 by 1, so the base health point become 17, 16, 15, and so on. so after reaching 9 HP, Kron can only restore 3 HP, and when it reach 6 HP, Kron can only restore 2 HP and finally died as he is not capable to restore many HP anymore. Unfortunately I was not using cripple in the match between I and @byzantinist
. here is the match :
|Weak Mgic, Explosive Weaponry||20||Fire, Earth|
The reason why I lose in this battle is because my total damage was 6 and Llama-Kron has ability to restore 6 HP in each round. So at the end of the match my team died because of fatigue. Explosive Weaponry is the problem here. If the ruleset is not Explosive Weaponry, We could use Obsidian as a summoner (by replacing Venator Kinjo) and increase the damage into 7. We could defeat Llama-Kron that way.
- USE DRAGON SUMMONER IN HIGH MANA BATTLE -
The second tip is using Dragon Summoner such as Byzantine Kitty or some other Dragon Summoner but it's still depends on the ruleset. When we see that using other summoners will put our team in advantage then we need to use other summoner but most of the time using dragon summoner in very high mana battle is always giving many win. Here is the example of 60 mana battle when I lose against @coppersmith
. He was using Kitty and I used Obsidian and I took an L in the end XD :
|Equalizer, Fire and Regret||60||Earth, Death, Earth|
Coppersmith guessed my team perfectly by using void tank monster in the first position supported by double tank healer (Goblin Psychic and Byzantine Kitty). he also used Mushroom Seer to reduce my team magic attack. Aside of Strong defence, he has pretty solid attack using Carnage Titan, Dragon Jumper, and Sand Worm, I think I have o% win percentage in this battle. Very nice battle showing how to counter Obsidian perfectly.
- HOW TO WIN MATCH BETWEEN YODIN VS YODIN -
One thing that makes Yodin Special is the blast ability. It could be a two edge sword actually, The good thing is The blast ability (if not reflected) is very dangerous, one attack could inflict damage up to 3 monsters so it's disastrous. However, the blast effect could also deadly for the ranged attacker if they face monsters who have return fire ability, the fire reflected could kill ranged attacker instantly. So we need to use Yodin very carefully. Here is the match between I and @cyguy
, a player from Immortal Gods :
|Super Sneak||60||Earth, Death, Earth|
In this battle, the reason why silvia-plays won is because I have stronger defence as the first position is Living Lava who has shield ability and the second position is Caladuum who has void ability. Living Lava works pretty good to reduce all of physical attack from Grum Flameblade, Disintegrator, and Lava Launcher, while Caladuum could reduce the damage taken from blast damage of Djinn Inferni attack.
- HOW TO BEAT BYZANTINE KITTY IN NOXIOUS FUMES -
The next strategy is beating Byzantine Kitty in Noxious Fumes. The idea to heal tank monster each round using Kitty is good but it costs lots of mana to a single monster. Instead, we can use monster who have "HEAL" ability to keep them alive even after getting 2 HP damage in each round due to Noxious Fumes ruleset. Another way is using Scarred Llama Mage but we can use that summoner only if earth splinter is available. The battle was bring together I and @jacekw
. Here it is :
|Armored Up, Noxious Fumes||20||Fire, Water, Death, Dragon|
In Noxious Fumes, if there's no option to use monster with immunity ability, then we have to use monster with cleanse ability in order to remove poison from the tank monster. Always remember that cleanse only works to the first position monster (Tank monster). In the backline, we can use monster who has triage or heal ability. In this case, Jacek used Spirit Hoarder, while I am using Water Elemental. At the end of the match, I won the battle because I have total 7 damage while jacek only has 1.
- BEATING YODIN USING DARIA DRAGONSCALE TEAM -
The most common way to beat Yodin is to use Ilthain as a summoner since she can give return fire ability to all of friendly monsters. The amplify will increase the damage of returned fire. In small mana, we can also use Daria Dragonscale to beat Yodin with proper strategy. The idea is always using Venator Kinjo in the second position to negate the blast damage. Here is the battle between I and @zaku
|Aim True, Counterspell||20||Fire, Water, Earth, Dragon|
The idea is to use tank monster who have heal ability to hold all of the increased ranged attack in each round and negate the blast damage using Venator Kinjo in the second round. for the attack, we can use all of melee monsters, either who have opportunity or sneak attack. We chose melee since the summoner is Daria. He increased the melee attack by 1. all the sneak monsters killes Yodin team in the backline one by one and help me win the match.
