Splinterlands | Manticore Challenge

By costanza | costanza | 11 Apr 2020

Another chance to highlight a Splinterlands card this week with the Share Your Battle Challenge This week it's the Dargon Manticore Card taking it up...



I'm a personal fan of the Manticore and use it quite often in my regular play combined with the Daria Dragonscale Summoner. Both are fully printed Reward cards I got from completing daily quests. The Fly and reach abilities on a level 4 Manticore make it an excellent 2nd card while the thorns ability and low mana cost for 8 health also make it a good option in 1st position. The inspire ability from other cards also makes this card extra powerful.



The Rules for the game were Armored Up & Little League with a 24 Mana Cap. This only allows cards of 4 mana or less to be used while giving them all 2 armor.

The plan for this battle was to maximize Melee & Blast power. The Daria Dragonscale summoner is often my main choice. I put the Manticore first Followed by the Electric Eels which has Reach and Blast. These 2 cards combined with summoner plus the Enchanted Pixie & Pirate Captain gave them a +3 Melee Bonus which is massive. The level 6 Crustacean King is pretty much a must in every Water Deck as it gives Armor and healing. To finish it off, I opted for the Serpentine Mystic which has Magic attack bypassing the shield and giving the affliction ability to prevent the opponent from healing. Overall quite a strong line-up which ended in an easy win.
