He Snipes, He Scores. A Twisted Battle

in GEMS3 months ago

Card battles are serious, intense but ultimately fun. When I get into battle, I try to imagine how my character will be in a physical battle and with Twisted Jester, all I can see is Harley Quinn. I mean, I'm not a fashionista or anything but anybody that can pull off this outfit surely has some screws loose.

That's a clown but I assure you, you don't want this one performing at your kids birthday. Not unless you want to see him juggle knives and then kill your cat out of compulsion, then you're better of just renting a bouncy castle.

When he's not killing cats in birthday parties, you can find him on splinterlands causing mayhem with his sick knives that he throws at unexpecting enemies that have ranged or magic ability. On Splinterlands, we call that Snipe ability and it isn't very common in the game, so here's how she looks in battle.

The Battle

So the battle rules were simple: Only monsters with Even Mana cost can be selected and lucky for me, psycho dude falls in that category, so I squeezed him at the tail end of my team to maximise his ability.

I used my favourite summoner, Delwyn to boost the Magic ability, as well as ensure I get the full potential of my Prismatic energy in the second position, in case there's a magic-user with snipe ability in my opponent's deck.

Manticore was placed up top because it flies and I was hoping it would evade a few hits which actually happened in the first round and gave me some tempo, generally speaking.

The jester stayed true to her ability and focused hits on Magic and Ranged monsters that were behind the backline and did some critical work that made the battle seem like a stroll in the park.

Keeping him at the back always put him at risk of being hit by a monster with Sneak, and that was what happened. Luckily for me, it was just one hit he took and so he survived till the end of the battle.

Le Lesson

Some battles appear difficult and others don't I learnt a little from myself and a little from my opponent. First of all, Death Splinter isn't one of my favourites, but considering I had no choice due to the options available for the battle, I had to make the best out of the situation. The combination of dragon magic, neutral and death ensured that I got the best of both worlds.

I also noticed that my opponent tried too hard to shoehorn high mana cards, instead of focusing as dealing as much damage as possible. This fact, combined with the extra speed I had meant that I was able to deal with critical damage in the first round, which set the tone of the battle in my favour.

Overall, it was a pretty straight forward battle that I enjoy watching. Actually, I enjoy watching any battle I kick ass, I guess that's a lesson too :D.
