I thought I've never find a stronger combo than Waka Spiritblade x Harklaw I actually found an upgraded version of it with Chain Golem. This works with both Modern and Wild format since Chain Golem is from the Untamed Series.

I'm really disappointed that I didn't know about the game when Untamed Series went out. There's a lot of interesting monsters in this series.

Waka Spiritblade

The decorations on Waka Spiritblade is more than decorations. He is from a rare tribe of magical people known as Malphurs. The tattoos and bones symbolizes the creatures they hunted as children. The skull helmet symbolizes power within the tribe. Only the most powerful magicians from each family are allowed to wear the skulls of their ancestor.

Waka Spiritblade's name is not only known within the tribe but also throughout Praetoria. Whenever he would do battle exhibitions, thousands of people fill the seats in order to watch. Waka Spiritblade is so strong that he was able to control the pace of the battle, making it longer than necessary for the crowds.

When the Chaos Legion invaded, Waka's people had nowhere to escape. Only when the community grew that he was able to salvage some of the souls left in the battle. When enough is enough, he took his mantle and went on a journey to face the Chaos Legion in order for past not to be recreated and before the Chaos Legion demolish the entire world.

Chain Golem

The Chain Golem is Archmage Arius's most outstanding creation. However, he did not make this monstrosity for glory but for revenge. There was only one order he gave to this mechanical being, that is to find and slay his brother.

The Chain Golem grabbed a morningstar and went on his journey through the night in order to fulfill the order of his master.

The cheapest ones costs around $400. Waka Spiritblade is special because this is a Limited Promo card with maximum copies of 1000 between the Gold foil and non-foil. Every card is maxed level so $400 for a max card is, while not cheap, I think a good investment.

Rental price of Waka Spiritblade costs at an average of 30 DEC per day. I got mine a little bit lower at 25 DEC per day so you can rent a lower one depending on the day.

Since Chain Golem is from a phased out pack, the lowest level 1 price is $46 while cheapest max level price is $420 for a level 4. Though the price seems steep, average price for legendary cards is around $40 so it's about right. You may need more funds if you're going to use him in higher league as you may want at least level 2 for the Void ability.

Right now, the price listed in the marketplace is for the max level. I was able to get my rentals in @peakmonsters for around $23 DEC for a level 2. You may get it a little more cheaper depending on the timing.

A legendary monster that's always maxed out whether you buy or rent it. Whether gold foil or not, this promo monster is always maxed level so you can always make sure that you can unleash the maximum level at any given league.

Chain Golem at level 2 is pretty strong and durable, almost as durable as Harklaw in terms of combined health and armor. One main difference, besides the abilities are the damage. Chain Golem has 3 damage at level 1 and 2 and 4 damage at levels 3 and 4.

Waka Spiritblade and Chain Golem combo
? π‘Ύπ’‰π’š 𝒐𝒓 π‘Ύπ’‰π’š 𝒏𝒐𝒕?

Yes. I actually like this more than Waka Spiritblade and Harklaw combo because it fixes one of the combo's weakness, which is against magic damage. In addition to that, Chain Golem is a neutral monster which means you can use him in other elements such as with Bortus to nullify magic damage or dragon's Camila Sungazer to nullify opponent's melee damage.

𝔓π”₯𝔬𝔱𝔬 𝔣𝔯𝔬π”ͺ π”ͺ𝔢 π”–π”­π”©π”¦π”«π”±π”’π”―π”©π”žπ”«π”‘π”° π”žπ” π” π”¬π”²π”«π”±.

Summoner: Waka Spiritblade: Gives Poison ability to all of my monsters which is very fundamental in my strategy.

  1. Chain Golem: An upgraded version of Harklaw. Chain Golem both have Shield ability and Void ability. When combined, this monster halves all damage except for poison and when those damage is 1 before the effect applies, it becomes 0 and negated.
  2. Queen of Crows: Has Headwinds ability which decreases opponent's range damage by 1 with a minimum of 1. The main purpose of this monster is actually because Life element is unlocked and Life is more range focused and Queen of Crows is to counter General Sloan but it still worked well against Lava Launcher.
  3. Silent Sha-Vi: Has Sneak ability that allows him to attack from any position while prioritizing the last positioned monster.
  4. Supply Runner: Has Swiftness ability to increase the team's speed by 1. The higher the speed, the higher the chance to hit the opponent, higher chance to avoid attacks and being able to act first every round.
  5. Mantoid: Has Snipe ability that allows him to prioritize non-melee targets. Snipe normally bypass the 1st position monsters as most good tanks are melee.
  6. Riftwing: Has Flying, Scavenger, and Backfire abilities. Flying increases dodge chance against non-flying monsters. Scavenger increases his maximum health by 1 for every monster that died, friend or foe, during the battle. Backfire deals 2 damage to enemies that attack Riftwing whenever they miss. Putting Riftwing at the backmost allows me to counter Sneak monsters as sneak monsters normally have melee damage which allows them to miss unlike magic damage. High speed, Swiftness from Supply Runner and Flying ability allows me to have Sneak attackers miss and take 2 damage via Backfire ability.


α—ͺIα—ͺ YOα‘Œα–‡ α”•Tα–‡α—©TEGY α—―Oα–‡KEα—ͺ?

Yes. As you saw in the last battle highlight, Chain Golem even survived until the end of the battle. Moreover, the RNG god blessed me with good luck in this battle. I got really lucky to be able to apply the poison ability a lot of times on different monsters.

My strategy would probably change depending on the rules of the current combat. If there's no Lost Magic rule of combat, I would've added Magi Necrosi instead of Mantoid for more effective damage.

Also, I recently noticed that high level of Death Elemental gives me Silence ability reducing opponent's magic damage. I've recently added this to my build for if opponents use more magic damage.
