"Share Your Battle" Weekly Challenge - Wave Runner
Hello everyone, hope you're all doing well and you've had a wonderful week so far. This is my second week of participating in the Weekly Challenge. This week's theme is Wave Runner ! A water splinter monster with 2 sets of EYES!👀👀
REACH (LVL 1-10)
Melee attack Monsters with the Reach ability may attack from the second position on the team
KNOCK OUT (LVL 5-10)
Does double damage when attacking an enemy that is stunned
SNARE (LVL 9-10)
When attacking enemies with Flying, removes the Flying ability and cannot miss
The Mana Cap for this battle was 25 points
The Ruleset for this battle was Standard
- Summoner: Alric Stormbringer
I chose Alric as my summoner because I wanted to have some magic monsters in the middle positions of my lineup.
- Position 1(Tank): Serpent of Eld
This monster is a pretty awesome Tank because of it's nice stats even at LVL 1. Its a very good fit with Wave Runner as a Position 2. These two monsters together make a very strong front line since they have decent Health, Speed and attack.
- Position 2: WAVE RUNNER
This monster has the Reach ability so it's a good Position 2.
- Position 3: Medusa
- Position 4: Ice Pixie
- Position 5: Enchanted Pixie
Positions 3-5 are Magic attack monsters who are protected by Tank and Wave Runner and buffed by my Summoner.
- Position 6: Albatross
A Monster with 1 mana cost with Flying ability to as a last position to act as a shield for my squishy magic attack monsters.
As you can see in the image below , I was against a Light lineup. My Opponent's Summoner - Tyrus Paladium - gives all friendly monsters +1 armor and my Summoner - Alric Stormbringer - Gives +1 magic attack to friendly magic attack monsters so my Opponent was already at a disadvantage since Magic attack ignores armor.
Wave Runner was still standing at the end of the battle, as I predicted, my frontline was decent.😎
Did your strategy work? What will you try differently next time?
My strategy worked quite well, Magic damage with good frontline is hard to beat apparently. For the next time I might try a Dragon splinter Summoner and Water splinter combination so that I can some other type of attack instead of Magic.
Do you like the WAVE RUNNER? Why or why not?
I really like Wave Runner as a Position 2, although it has 5 mana cost, its still a good choice. It has good stats and it can be a real pain for the opponent's tank.
Lastly I'd like to thank the @splinterlands team for creating such an amazing game with so much potential and a huge thank you to the curation team!
