Splinterlands Challenge of the Week: Centauri Mage!

This week's Splinterlands Challenge of the Week was to showcase the Centauri Mage from the Earth Splinter.

This a fantastic card for mid to higher mana battles in Bronze League as the Mage comes with a buff Level 1 - return fire, and so great defence against snipe attacks, most of which are ranged.

And she starts off with decent health and magic attack.

The battle below features The Centauri Mage in a solid victory!

Summoner - Lianna

  1. Stone Golem - shield tank
  2. Centauri Mage - A decent defence against snipe and useful second tank.
  3. Screeching Vulture - love that opportunity!
  4. Wood nymph - another useful bronze card, heal and one magic attack
  5. Child of the Forest - SNIPE!
  6. Failed Summoner - some defence against Sneak.

Did my strategy work?

  • Round 1 - it's looking good for me from the outset - my dual magic damage attacks work well against Living Lava, and the return Fire from the Mage is striking back against my opponent's snipe attack. And the Vulture takes out the Serpentine Spy!
  • Round 2 - The combination of my snipe and return fire on my opponent's snipe take out his Beetle, and heal is working nicely on my tank.
  • Round 3 - He loses his tank and Cerberus steps up. After two misses I finally land a snipe blow on his Spark Pixies and take them out!
  • Round 4 - No losses!
  • Round 5 - with most of my attacks now focused on Cerberus, he can't heal and he dies.
  • Round 6 - one monster to six left, it's all over!

How important was The Centauri Mage

She worked really well, soaked up snipe damage with plenty of health to spare and dealt back damage to the Snipe monster.

Although this wasn't too much of a contest as my opponent played too many dead monsters - two tanks, and one at the back doing nothing.

You're unlikely to win if you're only playing three active attacks against five in Bronze League!

So happy days!

Final Thoughts: Centauri Mage - worth buying?

For me it's a big FAT yes, this card starts off being useful straight away, and you only need to take her up to level five to get repair, which is a wonderful asset to have in so many battles!

The only downside is that because this is a reward card, it won't bolster your collection power that much, but for game play this is an essential addition to your deck as you progress up the leagues!

If you don't yet play Splinterlands, why not give it a go?

Strange to see you battle in the bronze league. But I know you rented out your high level deck. One of my favorite cards, Centauri Mage. A little bit too high mana to be used more often.


Yes I'm just playing with the lower cards I haven't got rented out.

I'm considering consolodating my cards so I've got a decent silver deck, but there's a lot of work involved selling and buying so it could well take me months,

And then with Chaos round the corner I may
