Splinterland's Battle Challenge : Crypt Beetle and Waka SpiritBlade played havoc in 14 mana battle
Whenever the Splinterland's battle challenge features , I like to try the battle in which I am able to show the usability of the card in that position and how it mere presence is able to change the course of the battle.
If the battle are of greater then 50+ mane, I feel there are lot of high mana strong monsters are available, though you can win but it rarely going to show the actual strength of card.
When I saw the above ruleset, I immediately know that Crypt Battle having Armour and just 3 mana is the perfect fit for this battle.
On the side note Waka Spiritblade is only 3/4 mana summoner in Death team that actually enhance all the friendly monster with poison, otherwise all other 3/4 mana Death Summoner plays on handicapping the opponent monsters.
My rationale for the team
Since it is just 14 mana battle, I cannot take liberty in putting monster on team. I used Waka Spiritblade a 3 mana Summoner that give poison ability to all friendly monsters. This is really strong ability in low mana matches. I used Crypt Battle as my tank, with "weak magic" rule in effect, it's armor will be also effective against magic attack, Creeping Ooze to slow down the enemy, Shadowy Presence to give +1 health to all friendly monster, 2 mana fallem specter that actually demoralize and headwinds is prone to magic reflect and that is the main reason of using Shadowy presence. Undead Archer for it's affliction abilities, Halfing Alchemist to save the tail and trigger redemption if it get killed.
Let move to the battle
This is the screenshot of the team with all monster and Summoner abilities in effect.
Opponent Shieldbearer is having taunt ability is already hit by Undead Archer for Affliction, and Halving by Halfing Alchemist, and Crypt Beetle hit the opponent Furious chicken with poison.
Sheild Bearer is also now poisoned , so only attacking monster is opponent Divine healer as Crypt Beetle shield is making Shield Bearer attack useless.
with couple of round progressed, opponent Sheild Bearer was taken down by poison, fallen Specter and Crypt Beetle attack.
Look like Divine Healer only lasted for a round and I sealed my victory.
