Splinterlands challenge - Unprotected | Low level monsters can win

Hello all Splinterlands friends,
This is my entry for the Battle Mage Secrets challenge.
This week's theme is the Unprotected ruleset, so I would like to share a battle with it.

The battle ruleset

  • 21 mana cap - a low mana battle
  • Ruleset - Unprotected and Super Sneak
  • Splinter - Only Fire and Dragon Splinter can be used

With these rulesets, I decided to use Fire melee monsters to utilize the benefit of Super Sneak, even though I don't have high-level Fire monsters in my deck.

My lineup

SummonerTarsa - to get +1 melee attack and +1 health to all my monsters with only 4 mana, so I can have more monsters on the field
1st positionFineas Rage - normally, I don't use him because he is only level 1. But he's useful in this battle with high speed and high HP. Another choice is Living Lava but I don't have him in my deck. If I use him, my reward will be deducted.
2nd positionExploding Rats - he has high speed but minor health. I want to use the Blast ability to damage the enemy team as much as possible
3rd positionAnt Miners - another level 1 monster. Even he has only 1 HP but he will be stronger in the later stage with Scavenger ability
4th positionScorch Fiend - 0 mana and no harm to have 1 more monster on the battlefield.
5th positionXenith Monk - with Super Sneak ruleset, all the melee monsters will attack the last position monster. So I put him in the last position with the hope that he can stay longer on the battlefield with his Heal skill

  • My enemy chose Dragon Splinter with Quix the Devious level 2 as the summoner. All the monsters are at max level and DJinn Chwala is at the backline to return any melee attack with Thorn skill.
  • Luckily, I didn't choose any range monster so my monsters didn't reduce the attack
  • In Round 1, my Exploding Rats took the 1st attack and he was killed by *Thorn skill. After that, Scorch Fiend was suicide as well but he still could take 2 HP from DJinn Chwala. However, my Ant Miners HP was increased and he could finish DJinn Chwala and continued staying on the battlefield.
  • In Round 2, my team finished Firecaller and Antoid Platoon was strengthened. But he alone couldn't against 3 monsters. And my monsters sealed the win in Round 3.

That's all for now.
Hope you enjoy this battle and have a nice weekend!
