New Purchases - Splinterlands
New Additions to My Deck
Sporcerer - Reducer of Armor
I recently rented this Earth Splinter monster card and was so impressed I decided to add him to my deck permanently. He costs 6 Mana to use, has 2 Magic, 1 Speed, 5 Health, and the starting ability of Rust. His ability to lower enemy Armor has proven super useful so I am very happy with this purchase.
Sporcerer's stats and abilities. He starts off with Rust which is a great ability, gets Silence at level 4 which will pair perfectly with Mushroom's Seer Silence both reducing most enemy Magic monster to 1 Magic which will result in any ally monster cards with Void ability receiving 0 damage from enemy Magic, and at Level 6 Sporcerer gets Affliction which removes an enemy's ability to heal.
Here's full picture and lore for Sporcerer.
Sea Monster - Water Dragon
This card has led to many defeats on my end because as an enemy card it wouldn't stop healing, plus it either outlasts or makes short work of most soft tanks. It costs 8 Mana to use, has 4 Melee, 1 Speed, 8 Health, and the starting ability of Heal.
Here's Sea Monster's stats and abilities. It gets the Thorns ability at Level 6 which means it will both heal itself and punish Melee monsters for attacking it, which is good combo.

Pyromancer - Another Blast Happy Fire Card
I haven't really seen this card used a lot by but I thought it would be awesome to add another Fire monster with the blast ability, so I chose Pyromancer. He costs 6 Mana to use, has 2 Range, 2 Speed, 5 Health, and the starting ability of Blast. Blast is such an amazing ability.
Pyromancer's stats and abilities. At Level 4, he gets Knock Out which does double damage to stunned monsters which is great, at Level 6 he gets Piercing so his 4 Range damage can now spill through enemy Armor into Health.
Here's Pyromancer's full picture and lore.
Hero of Beyond - Another Short-Range Range Tank
When I saw someone use a Life Monster that not only looked like a superhero but was a Range Tank, I had to try them out. Hero of Beyond costs 7 Mana to use, has 2 Range, 2 Speed, 1 Armor, 8 Health, and the starting ability of Short Range which lets him attack from the first position.
Hero of Beyond's stats and abilities. Not only does he start with the Short Range ability but at Level 3 he gets Last Stand increases his stats if he's the last card, and then at Level 5 he gets Shield which reduces Melee and Ranged damage--which all turn him into kind of a final savior when battling lots of enemy Melee and Ranged cards--unfortunately like a lot of popular caped crusaders he's vulnerable to Magic.
Here's Hero of Beyond's full image and link to his lore.
Phastasm - The Flying Horror
As I may have mentioned, Death is my favorite Splinter-- so I had to get another monstrous Death Splinter card to add to my team. I decided to go with a card that not only looks cool but has pretty good stats. Phantasm costs 6 Mana to use, has 2 Melee, 4 Speed, 7 Health, and the starting ability of Flying which increases its chance to dodge Melee and Ranged attacks.
Here's Phantasm's stats and abilities. Not only does Phantasm have Flying at the start but at Level 5, they get Return Fire which results in reduced damage back at enemy Ranged monsters that attack it, and then it gets Retaliate at Level 9 which does the same thing for enemy Melee monsters that attack it. Basically, it's a card that might be hard to hit but also punishes enemies when their attacks don't miss. I've noticed that he's pretty great but like Hero of Beyond is at a disadvantage against enemy Magic.
Here's Phantasm's full picture and lore.
Hobgoblin - Does 4 Damage with Other Cards Inspire Ability
Honestly, this Neutral monster isn't a new purchase. I got him a while ago but forgot I had him until I recently used him with Silvershield Knight and saw that Hobgoblin attacked twice with 2 Melee to do 4 Melee of damage before getting vaporized by enemy Magic. Despite his low life, being able to deal 4 Damage was impressive and I hope I get plenty of more duplicates of him in the future.
Here's his stats and abilities. He only has Double Strike but his Melee, Speed, and Health improve.
Here's his full picture and lore.
I'll post some more battle links of these new additions soon!
