Battle rules


SymbolRule Effect
imageAll Monsters have 2 Armor in addition to their normal Armor stat.

Total Mana : 16
Usable elements : Fire, Water, Earth, Life and Death

Well there is not much mana to be used in this fight and all units do get free 2 points of armor which helps with certain units.

Team Composition

Role: Summoner

Thaddius Brood with its reduction to magic and health is always a great pick since this is a low mana battle most units have low amount of hp to begin with making it lower is better.

Position: Main Tank/ Thorns

Cursed Windeku with its thorn will harm all the melee units that attack it and with its high hp pool and bonus armor makes it the prefect main tank.

Role: Filler/ Sub Tank

Corpse Fiend its a zero cost unit and in low mana battle it might be the tiebreaker since an extra health always helps, there is no good reason not to use it.

Role: Melee Damage/ Sneak/ Star of the Challenge

Silent Sha-vi, the star of the challenge and in this lineup the main damage dealer with its sneak and high speed it will help in destroying the enemy's backline.

Role: Sneak Shield/Dodge

Chaos Agent with it dodge it is one of the better sneak shields since it has a chance to dodge those attacks making it last longer as a shield.

Now on to the Battle

Round 1


That Corpse Fiend showing its worth right off the bat taking 2 attacks from the enemy team allowing the rest of the team to keep their hp and due to my summoner's effect of reducing damage the chaos agent did not die.

Round 2


The armor from the ruleset is hindering the effectives of Silent Sha-vi high attack Damage but at the same time the armor did protect it from damage, the opponent's magic sneak if the damage was not reduced i would have lost since magic bypasses armor and does not miss

Round 3 & Beyond


Silent Sha-vi's speed is showing its worth by allowing it to dodge some damage keeping it alive and thorn is helping remove the enemy's tank allowing for the match to continue trading blows.

This does go on for a while before ending in my victory as the Cursed Windeku has a pretty high health pool and the thorns is helping it cause quite a bit of revenge damage.

Strategy Talk

Silent Sha-vi works well it both low and high mana battle since it has a decent hp pool and quite a nice bit of damage however rulesets that give armor do harm its effectiveness, all in all a good card to play in death lineups if available.

Does suffer if played in reverse speed and earthquake matches since it does not have any armor.
