|THEME CARD: SCAVO FIREBOLT|
|MANA COST||4 POINT|
|ABILITIES||KNOCK OUT AT LVL 6|
My Lineup for the Battle
|Summoner||Tarsa||+1 Healt, +1 Melee damage|
|Position 1||Living Lava||Shield|
|Position 2||Tenyii Striker||Sneak|
|Position 3||Serpentine Spy||Opportunity|
|Position 4||Scavo Firebolt||No Ability|
|Position 5||Lava Spider||Snipe|
The ruleset was standard with all splinters allowed and the battle was a 26 mana battle that helped me choose my cards with greater freedom. My summoner was TARSA which gave my monsters extra health and melee damage point.
I placed the LIVING LAVA in the first position. As it has 2 shield points with shield ability which makes it less susceptible to attacks. I used it as my tank and it worked perfectly with its role in the lineup.
Next was TENYII STRIKER, a high damaging unit which combined with my summoner had 3 Melee attack points and has decent health helped in eliminating the opponent's monsters with ease. This was one of the best performing units from my lineup.
In the third position on my lineup, I used the SERPENTINE SPY, a sneaky monster which has a quick attack and is cheap to use. The best part about this unit is its opportunity ability, which attacks the weakest monster from the opponent's lineup.
Now came the SCAVO FIREBOLT, the theme card for this battle in second to the last position on my lineup. It has a good attack with 2 ranged attack points and 4 health points. This helped in sniping the monster with thorns ability, otherwise, this battle would have been a hard one to win with only melee type monsters.
In the last position, I used another ranged attacking type monster, the LAVA SPIDER. It worked well with SCAVO FIREBOLT and also had decent health too. It's snipe ability attacked monsters from the second position where the weaker monsters were placed by the opponent. So, it was a nice fit for my lineup.
After the lineup, it was the time for battle.
As you can see in the battle video, the first round starts with Serpentine Spy eliminating the Horny Toad and Tenyii Striker eliminating the Xenith Archer. From there on it was a relatively easy challenge for my monsters.
Scavo Firebolt and Lava Spider helped in cleaning up while the Living Lava proved to be a great Tank. It was a massacre on the battlefield. xD
Did your strategy work? What will you try differently next time?
Yes, my strategy worked well. Serpentine Spy and Tenyii Striker eliminated weaker monsters quickly and my tank, the Living Lava stood its ground firmly. It was a good strategy overall.
Do you like the Scavo Firebolt? Why or why not?
Yes, I like the SCAVO FIREBOLT, not only because of its moderate damaging ability but its overall stats with only costing 4 mana. It is very helpful with compositions having more ranged monsters and with high mana cost battles.
