Check out these new Airdrops!

It's the AMA before the General sale and you know what that means: Airdrop Previews

Splinterlands Speculations is back! This time I'll be showing you the Airdrop cards teased from the AMA tonight, and I will be speculating on their usefulness in different leagues, rulesets, and formats! These will be short and sweet!

These Airdrop cards will be released for the next 1M and 2M packs after General Sale kicks off!! You will need 350 Packs to guarantee a Normal Foil of this card, at this time there are no guaranteed Gold Foils.

Iza the Fanged: Prince Rennyn's new Waifu

 

Snake and Snake Accessories | Sharp Tongue | Sharp Wit | Sharp Teeth

I think this card is absolutely gnarly at Level 3 and 4, and only decent at Level 2. I'll actually say: This is the most underwhelming Level 1.

She will flat out be great with any Prince Rennyn composition, I guarantee Prince Rennyn loves this monster. They're a match made in Heaven.

That being said; Prince Rennyn is taking his ass to Wild, and so... I think this card is going to be a crazy meta relevant threat in Wild, and... more of a niche pick in Modern, outside of Equalizer

MODERN: 7/10, Not as much synergy with CL and Untamed, still powerful.
WILD: 10/10, Prepare to cry whenever you face Prince Rennyn
BRONZE 1/10, Underwhelming, Goblin Thief or Sorceror do it better?
SILVER 6/10, Still a little underwhelming, ranged Goblin Thief with Vulture
GOLD 9/10, Stun is insane, 4 Mana Stun on a Sneak Attacker can give Earth a TON of Stun lock.
DIAMOND+ 8/10? I don't know much about Diamond, so this one's a total shot in the dark, but from what I've heard, you generally want a lot of support abilities, or 1:1 Damage per Mana for your Attackers. I'm not sure if Stun and Vulture are enough.

Great Rulesets: Little League, Equalizer, Knockout, No Heals, Unprotected
Bad Rulesets: Poison, Earthquake, Fog of War, No Abilities

I place this card around the value of Djinn Muriat; my reasoning for this is she will be really great with Prince Rennyn, and a bit more niche otherwise. Djinn is a very powerful CL Legend, but he doesn't have an absolutely amazing Summoner to pair him with. I place her around where Djinn Muirat ends up around.

Iza the Dark: Ranged Assassin Supreme

 

Cruella Deville but Red + Purple | Kitty's new best friend | Ultimate Opportunist

Look at those elaborate patterns and that cocky face: I love her, this is definitely related to Liza Fox.

With Opportunity, Snare, and Swiftness, and a crazy amount of speed, this is a dangerous card. She's Dhampir Stalker on steroids. She reads like a Gladius card, and that's exciting for Death, who always loves new Opportunity attackers, especially a much needed high mana Opportunist.

MODERN: 9/10, This is such a good, fast card for Death, this is a Gladiator without the Deathblow ability.
WILD: 9/10, Seriously, I love her and she alone should make Contessa and Mimosa more useful.
BRONZE 7/10, She's a 6 Speed Mantoid with its Snare Ability and Opportunity instead of Snipe. That's great.
SILVER 8/10, More damage is always good.
GOLD 9/10, Swiftness?! Yes.
DIAMOND+ 8.5/10 Again, I won't make any assumptions here and claim they have much experience behind them, but my guess is the +1 Damage keeps it as good in Diamond as it is in Gold. I'll actually drop it a bit up here, since many cards get a multi-stat or new crazy ability up here.

Great Rulesets: Close Range, Lost Magic, Fog of War, Unprotected, even No Abilities
Bad Rulesets: Poison, Earthquake, Snipe, Armored

I believe Lira is going to be a very powerful Death card, and one of the more expensive Death cards out of CL; I place her around where Chaos Dragon and River Hellondale will settle; She offers pure offense, and an Opportunity niche for high mana that will be heavily favorite by Death's compositions, while also providing beautiful support abilities and pairing very nicely with Brighton Bloom, Kitty, Nightmare, Supply Runner, and many other speed focused cards.

She's got a prety nice hood; could use some ornamentation though....
