It is challenging enough to assemble a Monster line-up to battle under a specific Rule. It is this challenge that keeps me wanting to play the game!
For me personally, it can be nerve-racking and frustrating when a specific Rule is coupled with the Rule Earthquake! I recall three times when I was not able to complete a line-up on time and lost the battle even before entering the battlefield because the rule sets given were a combination of Earthquake and another rule.
As I write this article, I want to let you know that I am here to share my journey in learning the game of Splinterlands. I do not pretend to be an expert to give anyone else advice on how to play and win the game. If I was that good at this game and had the ideal Monster and level cards for each Rule Set, then I'd be at the championship level by now!
The Rule Set for this battle I want to share with you today is Healed Out [All healing abilities are removed from Monsters] and Earthquake [Non-flying Monsters take 2 Melee damage at the end of each round], Mana-27.
Okay, so here we go! Watch me battle!
Now that you've seen the battle, let me explain my lineup, the order and why I used the cards as I did in this battle.
Here are my Monster Line Up in this battle:
|Monster Cards Used||Reason for Using the Card|
|Summoner: Daria Dragonscale, Level 3|| |
Although I can use my Level 1 Zintar Mortaus for this battle to summon both the Death and Neutral Monsters, it is not leveled high enough to summon the full abilities of the Rare and Epic Monster cards that I wanted to use in this line-up.
I also wanted to use Manticore from the Dragon Team which can only be summoned by a Dragon Summoner.
If everything else was equal, I think that the best summoner for the Earthquake rule set would be that which adds health to all friendly Monsters, such as Earth Summoner Lyanna Natura and Life Summoner Mother Khala.
|Phantom Soldier, Epic Death/Flying, Level 1||This card has the highest health of 8 in my Death Team that has the Flying ability. A great Monster for the first position, even at level 1 and no self-healing abilities or other cards allowed in the line up that can heal damage unto him, his flying ability can help evade Melee and Range attacks (which is true for all Monsters with flying abilities).|
|Dark Enchantress, Epic Death/Flying, Level 2||My first choice for the second position was Fallen Specter, but keeping in mind that the opponent may be fielding Monsters who attack, the second positon, I chose the Dark Enchantress primaily because she has more health than the Fallen Specter.|
|Fallen Specter, Legendary/Flying, Level 1||Although this Monster has ony a health of 1, his flying ability and high speed of 6 may compensate for it.|
|Manticore, Epic Dragon/Flying/Reach, Level 3||This Monster can attack from behind, high health, with a speed of 3 yet has a low Mana. I use this Monster as often as I use Daria Dragonscale that adds to Manticore's Melee.|
|Enchanted Pixie, Rare Neutral/Flying, Level 5||I wanted to use Death Elemental with higher health, speed and had the Snipe ability. But I went for the Flying ability of the Enchanted Pixie. I think that the Death Elemental would have hastened the defeat of the opponent's team if I used him, and the battle would have been won sooner.|
|Furious Chicken, Rare Neutral, Level 4||Perfect to fill up an open slot for battle line-up. At Level 4, this Chicken has 1 Melee attack to which Daria adds one more!|
So... why don't you tell me if my strategy worked or not this time! [Like I got a comment from a good dude friend of mine that said... "Oh, you were just lucky you got to attack first", etc., etc..]
My chosen Splinter Team and lineup and whether it was deliberate or not or simply a result of luck, I celebrate at the end of all battles won and I say to myself: "Yay! My strategy worked!!!"And that is just me having fun and getting in the game!!!
