If You "Lose A Legend", Build One - Social Media Challenge

In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time. Is a common quote by #"D'Angelo". This means in life we are bound to fail as humans, as no one is without their failure story. But what we do after failure is what really matters, some people sit back and remain at that spot while some move on and keep trying. This battle reminds me of never giving up, rather than trying to push forward. Another common saying is that giving up is not an option but a choice, so most times we choose to give up instead of persevering through tough times.

Battle Experience

At the start of the battle I selected my legendary monsters. My choice of cards were the fire cards. I thought I was smart enough by using them, not knowing they are targets for my opponent. What I noticed in the game was my enemy was targeting my legendary monsters while protecting its own. Attacking my legendary monsters made me lose out of the battle completely
I wasn't smart enough to protect my legendary monsters, while my opponent developed a tactic in eliminating my target legend while keeping its own intact.

What I learnt
