Splinterlands Battle Mage Challenge: Even Stevens...

This week's Battle Mage rule set challenge was Even Stevens in which one can only use even numbered monsters!

Even Stevens general strategy....

Well there's not too much to say, other than opt for the best splinter possible that has the best even mana monsters available, water springs to mind as in the example below...

Summoner Kitty - for the awesome!

  • Chain Golem - a solid melee tank
  • Djin Chawalaa - Second tank
  • Deep lurker - just the law in evens and melee!
  • Promo thing - well it's new!
  • Cocatrice - opportunity sink
  • Kraken- to soak any sneaky sneak and opportunity attacks.

The battle...

  • round 1 - I take out my opponent's water fiend - good start!
  • round 2 - we exchange blows for no losses
  • round 3 - I take out the monk!
  • round 4 - I take out the Gargoyle.
  • rounds 5 and 6 - we trade blows for no losses
  • round 7 - sneak finally takes out the Elven defender!
  • round 8 - I take out the Daemon Shark
  • round 10 - it's game over!

Final battle analysis

My opponent chose decent cards but I just over powered him!

Even Stevens final thoughts....

TBH I think you need a number cruncher to simply figure out what splinters have the best cards for even mana, otherwise the ruleset makes little difference to ordinary play on its own!


Good strategy!!!
I like tha


I would use my kitty but the revenue rental loss would be so enormous I daren't!
