Countdown to Untamed - Part 3

in splinterlands •  2 months ago 

Only three days left until Untamed, and we have a little bit of a different update for you today. As many of you know, three more Reward edition cards are nearing their print limit - Pirate Archer, Naga Fire Wizard, and Sacred Unicorn - so we will be adding three new Reward edition cards to take their place along with the rest of the Untamed release. You can check out the new cards below in addition to a few of the new Untamed cards!

There will also be a new Legendary Dragon Summoner card that will replace Archmage Arius as the special Mystery potion card. It will have the same limited print run of 90 max level cards and the Mystery potion will be updated so that there will be a 50% chance of one of the special cards being given out each day, instead of always being every other day like it was for Arius. You'll have to wait until the release to see what the new card is though!

As always, please keep in mind that everything is still subject to change before the release. This includes the stats, abilities, names, and even the entire card itself.

Now that that's out of the way, may we present the new Reward cards: Battle Orca, Boogeyman, and Spirit Miner, followed by some new Untamed cards: Kobold Wrestler, Luminous Eagle, and Wizard of Eastwood!

Battle Orca

The Battle Orca are a no frills, solid, low mana cost tank card. They can take some hits and deal some damage and should fit in very nicely for the Water Splinter in many low mana cost battles and especially in the Back to Basics ruleset!

Boogeyman

Watch out or the Boogeyman will get you! This new Death Splinter card lays on the debuffs pretty thick. He'll reduce the Speed, Armor, and Melee attack (at max level) of all enemy Monsters. He also sneaks in a couple Magic attack damage and has a decent amount of Health.

Spirit Miner

The Spirit Miner is a new Neutral Legendary card to replace the Sacred Unicorn. He increases the Speed of all friendly monsters with the Swiftness ability and Blinds all enemy monsters giving them an increased chance of missing with Melee and Ranged attacks. He also has a nice Magic attack and Dodge which makes him harder to hit.

Kobold Wrestler

Like most races in the Burning Lands, Kobolds enjoy competitive sports. In special caves called wrestlehuts, Kobold Wrestlers meet regularly to spar with one another and practice their techniques. For these Kobolds, size doesn't matter; they are happy to wrestle with monsters five or six times bigger than them if the challenge arises, and they are likely to win. Although they enjoy the sport, Kobolds never gamble.

The Kobold Wrestler is a nice low cost tank for the Fire Splinter. He packs a big punch for a small guy and has a new ability called "Knock Out" which means he will do double damage when he hits an enemy monster that is currently stunned!

Luminous Eagle

Eagles are the most powerful of the Luminous Beasts in Khymeria. They can often be seen streaking across the skies at night, leaving a mystical glowing trail behind them. In battle, they are nearly impossible to hit with a melee attack, but their own talons rarely miss and they can take down far larger animals.

The Luminous Eagle is a strong second position Melee attack monster with the Reach ability for the Life Splinter. In addition to the new Knock Out ability described above, it also has Shatter which breaks all of an enemy monster's armor when it hits.

Wizard of Eastwood

The Wizard of Eastwood is the long-time rival of the Magi of the Forest. The Magi no longer summons, but teaches new summoners from his Summoner's Green school in the Western Forest. The Wizard of Eastwood, who had chosen a life of selfish seclusion so many years ago, has suddenly returned as a formidable contending summoner to the Mount Mox tournaments.

The Wizard of Eastwood is the first new Summoner card presented from the Untamed series. The Untamed Summoners will be very similar to the basic Summoners from the Alpha/Beta editions, but with different stat buffs or debuffs, so there will now be more options to choose from at the 3 mana cost spot. Expecting to go up against a Life Splinter team? Might want to choose the Wizard over Lyanna.


Special thanks to @carrieallen and @chrisroberts for designing all of the new Untamed cards and writing the lore text!


Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!

I'm just waiting for the untamed version of a 'Rusty Android' to appear. Surely there has to be some duds. lol

Yes, yes... Let's see now the 'Rusty iPhone'

This comment made my day!

Oh no, not another rusty android... please no...

Wow. Four abilities on a rare card (Luminous Eagle). Can't wait to see it in action.
Bonus points for the first guy to accidentally play Eastwood in Unprotected.
Feeling lucky? Punk?

Noooooo, Cousin Ronny! What happened to you?

Man those cards all looks awesome.
I don't even think I could pick one that I thought was best they're all that good.



I have one complaint ....

Kobold Wrestler

Reading the stats and looking at the card it looks like the Kobold Wrestler is more of a Kobold Boxer.
Wrestlers don't wear gloves nor do they punch/spar or go for a KO.

I find this hilarious. :D Allow me to attempt an explanation.

The Kobolds are a wrestling people. They have small hands, so they aren't much into punching. However, their wrestling leagues involve an intricate system of handicapping in which the more advanced wrestlers are required to wear gloves to give them a disadvantage. If they reach a high enough level, Kobold Wrestlers may even be required to wear gloves on their feet.

Anything goes in the Kobold matches, but they have never heard of "boxing". Spectators have also found that when the wrestlers wear gloves, the fights tend to go on longer.


The joys of working with a team from all over the world! :D Methinks this may be the next Lord Anus. Inside joke to bring annoyance and delight to all players. But I'm not budging on the name Kobold Wrestler. lol

Even with all that .... Wrestlers still don't punch/spar or go for a knock out / boxers do :P

I do appreciate you taking the time to comment and the added lore was nice to read as well. I still think it being a boxer is more suited to its abilities and even the card look itself.

lol, the knockout ability was new information to me with this post. A name change may be in order after all; thanks for your thoughts!

Ummmmm, i dont like to much this cards like another days....

Mwahaha, it's time for the obliteration of all lifeforms!!!

Cool to see reward cards! I had hoped that they would also get new card art :(

Please rename Kobold Wrestler to Kobold Boxer or Fighter, or remove gloves in the artwork and change descriptions/stories, as it's a bit silly now.

Untamed cards seem to be very powerful.

I think you are doing a great job of balancing. The new cards seem to complement beta cards, without being much stronger or weaker overall. Well done.

It is going to be a fun weekend

Awesome!! Pardon me! What's the meaning of "lays on the debuffs pretty thick"?? @steemmonsters @clove71 ?

The card gives a lot of negative stat effects to the enemy team.

Thank you @pandapuzzles, haven't found any on it exept this in the meantime [1]. So I simply translated it like upvalue or downvalue stats (see my blog). Again, thanks!
