The Battle

Here's the link to the whole battle

Round 1

This was my very first time encountering Caladuum, he really looked so taunting wherein I thought I would lose this fight because of all his HP and armor. I was also scared of his lineup. My opponent was using Pyre so all of his monsters had the speed up. Most of his monsters attacked ahead of me, and it was really painful because of the rule of explosive weaponry. I purposely placed the sea monsters behind my tank because of his heal because if I placed a different monster there, it would have probably died from all the blast damage. I also used monsters with a little high hp because I know how painful blast can be. I even thought I would have a lot of casualties due to the blast during this round, but I'm really thankful that only the Ice Pixie died.

Payback came when my Sniping Narwhal sniped the Fire Elemental, thus killing the Serpentine Spyand and Spark Pixies which was beside it. This was the moment that felt so great because it took down 3 monsters with 1 hit. That's when I saw that blast+snipe is a really nice combination. After the other attacks of my monsters, they also took down the Giant Roc.

Round 2

During this round I was able to own my opponent, all the flurries of attacks were killing Caladuum and it eventually killed the kobold miner behind it. This scene reminds me of RPGs wherein my team was fighting the final boss, and with teamwork, they won.

Thoughts on this battle
This was a really fun matchup, the most epic moment was when my Sniping Narwhal killed my opponent 3 monsters with one hit. I'm also lucky that I chose that right summoner and using Torhilo the Frozen as the Tank. Torhilo is just great with his HP, armor, and magic damage reduction. Because of the attributes of Torhilo, it was able to withstand most of the attacks of the opponent's monster and his role was great in tanking Caladuum. He just acted like a tank with a lot of armor and Magic Defense.
