Shauner's 39th Splinterlands Brawl Report - PIZZA 2 The Deep Dish Guild


Welcome to my 39th #BrawlReport as part of the PIZZA 2 The Deep Dish guild! This is the brawl that ended around October 16, 2022.

I have settled into being a regular Fray #1 fighter these days.

My Battles

My 5-1 record for this brawl was the result of six full battles as I didn't have any opponents fleeing. I was really hoping to go undefeated again, but was shut down in my final battle this time.

Featured Battles

Battle #1 - Win

Watch the battle.

This was my first battle using the Cutter Brieze gladiator card. Because of the low mana limit of 18, I wanted to be able to add something substantial to pair with the Llama/Kron combo.

Ultimately, the gladiator card didn't really do anything and the battle was won by the Llama/Kron combo.

Battle #4 - Win

Watch the battle.

This battle had a 25 mana cap, no legendaries, and reverse speed. That's a tough combo and really hurts my typical strategies in these brawls.

Both of us deployed the Chimney Wallstop gladiator card, but my Yodin summoner should provide an edge overall.

Their Chimney got an early kill that boosted stats and made me worried. Ultimately, this battle ended up way closer than I figured it would. I was only spared because of a miss from my opponent in the very end.

Battle #6 - Loss

Watch the battle.

This was a tough battle to put cards together for. We were limited to Life and Dragon summoners, which means only Life monsters were in play. I don't really have much depth in my brawling deck for Life.

I ended up using a gladiator card with Magic and Snipe, hoping that it would build up quickly. I've also had some success with the double range attack of Pelacor Arbalest so I put that one out there too.

However, my opponent's strategy was far superior to mine and they made quick work of taking me out before I was able to even get any traction at all.

Final Thoughts

I'm pretty much only brawling these days. It has become way too much work to grind in the regular leagues to try to maintain a rank and the rewards have been absolute garbage lately. I'm really not sure what the plan is with making this game sustainable, but for now brawls is where it's at. I miss the days when Splinterlands was actually producing some profitable results and sadly the brawl rewards in the form of gladiator cards are stuck to my account and not tradeable. It's kind of ironic how the best part of the game is also it's worst feature.

While the regular leagues don't keep my interest anymore, the PIZZA guilds are CRUSHING it with top finishes happening regularly for many of us. Keep it up PIZZA!

What is the #BrawlReport?

kennysgaminglife spearheaded the #BrawlReport project as a way to get PIZZA guild members more engaged in the @Splinterlands community. Here's what he had to say:

*Starting with the brawl that just ended, I've invited/asked members of the #HivePizza guild to publish a #BrawlReport, breaking down their highs & lows, where they need help, questions they have, strategies they love, and so on. The idea is to help us all reflect a bit, learn a bit, share a bit, earn a bit, and connect a bit :-)

Check out the latest update on the Hive Pizza token project. We also have an announcement in there about the newest PIZZA guild! We are up to four Splinterlands guilds now and are consistently well-ranking.
