For those of you still in the dark, each week @splinterlands will host 3 weekly challenge which is the Battle Challenge, Social Media Challenge, and the Art Competition challenge, and everyone is welcomed to join in 2 weekly and get some delicious Hive upvote! So without further ado, let's jump to it!

Another Splinterlands Weekly Battle Challenge! This week challenge features the mighty RADIATED BRUTE!! Make sure to join!



This common fire unit is a new addition with the CL expansion, and basically is a semi-tank melee with Reach, allowing it to attack from the second position. He starts of with 2 Melee damage at level 1, pair this with Malric or Tarsa and it's a whooping three. It's even better than the same 5-mana cost yet only 1 attack point Giant Roc. Thus being my new go-to semi tank in almost all Fire match.

Let's go watch the battle!


23 Mana, No Heal, Close Range, with only 3 Splinters available. By watching through this seemingly bot opponent match history I was pretty confident he will do an Earth Magic spam and thus my lineup:

SplinterMana CostPositionReason
Tarsa4SummonerMakes the team bulkier and hits harder, also because I can't afford Yodin.
Tusk the Wide61stGodsent cheap Void tank for Fire, must have since I predict Magic Spam incoming.
Radiated Brute52ndThe star tonight, with his Reach he can help damage the enemy tanks, while also buying more time for the backlines in case Tusk died.
Serpentine Spy33rdSwift opportunity assassin to kill some squishies mage.
Tenyii Striker54thSneak! Also cuz I was running out of options to find anything else that looks better.
Total Mana:23

Did your strategy work? What will you try differently next time?

Yes, it worked well. Enemy magic had a hard time to melt down Tusk, which in the meantime allows Tenyii and Serpentine Spy to do their job.

Do you like the Radiated Brute? Why or why not?

Better and cheaper alternative to Giant Roc, my previously go to Reach monster for Fire. Having this new Radiated Brute was such a nice game-changer. He is still behind Fineas Rage imo, but still cheaper both $$$ wise and Mana cost wise so there's that to consider.
