The Strategy

Monster Selection: The Key to Success

In the Little League ruleset, selecting monsters with high health and armor becomes pivotal. By doing so, you enhance their survivability, granting them more opportunities to inflict devastating damage on your foes. These tanky monsters can endure relentless assaults while dishing out formidable blows.

Harnessing the Power of the Martyr Ability

One of the most effective tactics in the Little League is employing the martyr ability strategically. This ability triggers when a monster dies, offering beneficial effects to the surrounding allies. By placing a martyr monster between two shielded monsters with high damage output, you create a deadly combination. When the martyr monster eventually falls, it revives or reinforces the shields of nearby allies, and elevates their damage potential.

Venari Marksrat: The Self-Sacrificing Champion

In this particular ruleset featuring fire and regret, the Venari Marksrat takes center stage. With its ranged damage output, this brave fighter essentially sacrifices itself in the heat of battle. Its ability to deal ranged damage while succumbing to the ruleset's effects makes it a strategic asset that can turn the tide of any confrontation.

Counterspell Ruleset: Building Resilience

Knowing your opponent's likely moves is a crucial aspect of strategy. With the Counterspell ruleset in play, the possibility of facing magic damage types is reduced. This information allows you to fortify your defenses against melee and ranged attacks, increasing your chances of emerging victorious.

Formidable Defense: Chaos Agent, Xenith Monk, and Antoid Platoon

To safeguard against sneak melee damage, position your Chaos Agent and Xenith Monk at the back of your lineup. Their presence will discourage and thwart any sneaky assaults, ensuring your frontline remains intact.

To protect against ranged damage, the Antoid Platoon takes the forefront with its substantial shields. This robust monster will absorb incoming ranged blows, bolstering your team's chances of survival. Coupled with the martyr strategy, the Antoid Platoon's melee damage increase can lead to a fearsome counterattack.

The Summoner

Tarsa is a rare Chaos Legion fire summoner that increases health of all units and increases melee damage of all monsters on the friendly team.

1st Slot - Tank

Venari Marksrat is a new soulbound reward card that becomes critical in the little league ruleset. I positioned it between my primary tank and my primary damage dealer to enhance their attack and defense abilities. This little monster even at level five is very usable in both diamond and champion leagues.

2nd Slot - Martyr Monster

Celestial Harpy is an opportunity monster that is also a low mana monster that at level 2 has an opportunity to finish off the monster with 1 health or hit a low health monster in the middle of the enemy team creating splash damage on both sides of the monster that was targeted both of which are very important in this ruleset

3rd Slot - Primary Damage Dealer with Sneak and Poison

Uraeus is an epic rewards neutral monster that comes with a base speed of four, three melee damage one shield and four health all for the mana of only three. It also has important sneak and poison abilities that are key to my play in this little league ruleset.

4th Slot - Opportunity Bait Melee Reduction Monster

Scorch Fiend is a legendary zero mana monster that comes with health of one which makes it a perfect bait for the enemy opportunity monsters.

5th Slot - Sneak Protection

Xenith Monk is a great sneak protection tank that comes with a base health of eight and self healing ability which make it difficult to get through particularly in the little league ruleset.

6th Slot - Backfire Tank

Chaos Agent is another Chaos Legion card that for one mana has a unique set of abilities. It comes with dodge, phase and backfire abilities which can produce significant backfire damage against his attackers. It also has a base health of four and four speed making it a perfect tank to play against sneak damage.



In round one we took out their backline monster, part of it was due to the reflect damage that it inflicted on itself.

In round two we took out their opportunity monster by poisoning it and took out their self healing front tank. We did loose our Chaos Agent.

In round three we took out their Venari Marksrat

In round four we were able to land poison to their primary damage dealer which has grown in health and is starting to pose a real danger to our backline self healing tank:

At the start of round six you can see the effects of our martyr monster dying and restoring the shield on our tank as well as giving our tank five damage and to our primary damage dealer also five damage combined with effects of the poison any single blow from our team that lands will finish the fight.

And Ureaus finishes him off:
