Splinterlands Challenge of the Week: Silent Shavi...

This week's Splinterlands Challenge of the Week was to showcase the Silent Sha-Vi from the Death splinter...

This is an extremely useful mid mana card at lower levels, even as early as L3 you get 3 damage with decent health and speed, and SNEAK. Very nice!

The [battle below](https://splinterlands.com/?p=battle&id=sl_6b4ee5bbcdb9f76a8eae0649e3e38941 features a Level 1 Sha-vi playing a pretty major role in a fairly easy victory!

The Rule Set and Line Up

  • Mana cap 22 - OK for 5 mana cards...
  • Standard Rules apply (Bronze League!)

Summoner - Rotwell

  1. Harklaw - high mana but a great tank with Shield!
  2. Chicken - snipe and opportunity soak
  3. Scavo Hireling - to repair Harklaw's shields
  4. Silen Sha-vi - sneak attack 1
  5. Skeleton - sneak attack 2
  6. Corpse Fiend - 0 mana filler 2.

Did my strategy work?

Beautifully, to see it in action click here!

  • Round 1 - I lose the Chicken to snipe, but that's what he's there for (sorry Chicken!) but I score twice - my double sneak takes out Naga Assassin while reflect takes out Death Elemental (two decent cards down in the first round!)
  • Round 2 - I lose my Scavo (I ALWAYS lost my Scavo!) but double sneak works again to take out another back row monster!
  • Round 3 - A combination of reflect and Sha-vi takes down my opponent's last remaining magic monster.
  • Round 4 - sneak takes out Carrion Shade.
  • Round 5 - I lose my Skeleton to Thorns but it's all over the Windeku dies!

How important was The Silent Sha-vi?

He certainly worked well as part of a double sneak strategy combined with the skeleton: shields and then damage - NICE! And it's also nice to know he could stand up to a couple of rounds against thorns if needed too.

However I also needed Harklaw's shield and decent health as a tank and REFLECT is what finished off the two magic attacks mostly.

So he played his part in a team effort I think!

So happy days!

Final Thoughts: Silent Sha-vi - worth buying?

I'd certainly say he's essential if you're playing a double or triple sneak strategy - just for the mana he's about the best death sneak card you can get, with enough health to be at least resistant to thorns for a couple of rounds, unlike so many other death cards.

But for a common card, and that's how me must judge the Worm, he's pretty awesome!

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

I use that one a lot and he's effective at taking out the rear guard.
