The Battle

battle start 2.png
Aim True: Melee and ranged always hit their target
Rise of the Commons: Only common and rare monsters may be used
24 mana
All splinters except Fire Available

My thought Process:

I figure they are going to go large tanks which absorbs a good chunk of mana and then smaller rear monsters which can be picked off; so I pick my line up.

Lorna Shine : gives everybody one free damage mitigation
Chaos Knight : Primary tank with shield
Silvershield Knight : Secondary tank with inspire
Stitch Leech : Damage dealer with sneak
Elven Cutthroat : Fast damage dealer with sneak
Truth Speaker : Gives 2 armor to everybody
Chicken : Back line hit absorber in case of sneak

I see shield bearer pop up as defence, this makes me a little worried as he is a very large taunting meat shield to go through before I can target the back line.

Round 3

I move to round 3 right away because the first two rounds were just trading primary tank hits and nothing eventful. Both tanks are injured but they have armor repair and a heal which makes me a little nervous.

Round 4

My primary tank is down but since my monsters are faster, theirs is about to join mine :)
After that I can start working on picking them off from the back forward.

Round 5

Tank down so I can start working on all the smaller HP monsters now, I am about to lose my secondary tank and the inspire boost but I suspect there is too much armor and HP for the opponents smaller hit monsters.

Round 6

Enemy team at 1 damage per round and I am at 3, this is a lock.

Did my strategy work? Yes, as intended The chaos knight took many rounds of damage before falling which enabled my monsters to soften up the enemy line significantly.
Do I like Chaos Knight? Yes I do she is one of my favorite new life cards as you can use her as primary tank, secondary tank or in some rule sets as a rear tank guard, high utility for mid range mana expenditure.
