Winning Against Water with Life and Double Silence (High Mana Noxious Fumes)
Life isn't everyone's favourite Splinter, but I've got a bit of a soft spot for it, and when you've got a Life quest, well you may as well play.
Unfortunately my favourite (and in fairness pretty standard) Life Splinter strategy is to play the Shildbearer combined with either sneak or Snipe, but this particular strategy is usually quite weak against magic, as the SB has very little defence against that attack, and when it's all drawn towards him because of his taunt, that an be disastrous!
HOWEVER, I've been experimenting with playing double silence to try and balance this weakness out, and here's a battle where it worked quite nicely against a treble magic attack....
You need A LOT of mana for this to work as you need not only the 8 mana SB, but ideally Volour of the Peace and the Angel, not to mention Chanseus.
But if you get it right, you can keep your team alive with Repair and Triage long enough for a single attack to take out everyone else, or in the case of Noxious Fumes, for the poison to finish them all off.
Of course Kralus helped too, but note he's far from maxed!
