Imagine Dragons, they are here, and you wouldn't want to be near! (A Splinterlands battle challenge)


What is Splinterlands?

Splinterlands is a card game, similar with Hearthstone, where you can play battle against other players to get a better rank or in tournaments. It is a NFT game based on Hive Blockchain, with multiple ways to capitalise and make money, real money, by playing it or trading in it. You can start earning as soon as you buy a Spellbook ($10) getting DEC tokens and NFT monster cards via daily quests and season quests(every 2 weeks). There is an airdrop daily, for a whole year, currently at day 184/365, I think, and you can still get some nice governance tokens just by playing the game for the next year. Everything counts, cards, DEC on HIVE, WAX, ETH and BSC, lands, titles, skins. You can maximize the airdrop by staking all you SPS for a 35.60% APR right now. Another way to make profit is to rent cards, getting paid in DEC tokens for it. But, my, oh my, the renting price right now is so, so low.


The free for all 3rd phase sale is on, and I had only enough funds to buy 68 packs. At last, we can finally buy packs with 4$, using just Credits. Even then, if you want to get the extra packs, you still need vouchers, but just for the bonus packs. An awesome hint from a really good player (not me), if you open your packs after the Legendary summoners are introduced, you have a small chance to get them from the packs. Unlike right now. I believe that lands will be introduced next in the second quarter of 2022, I believe, with a price of 570$ on average for each at the moment. Just check this awesome page about what are the Lands supposed to do.


Dragons are a powerful Splinter, and the main advantage is that you can use the Dragon Splinter cards, along with another splitner of your choice. The summoners are quite powerful too, for a decent Mana cost. One of those champions, a favorite of mine, is Daria Dragonscale, an Epic Dragon Summoner with 4 Mana cost, giving +1 Melee damage boost to every member of your team. Just imagine the boost on rulesets like Melee Only, Sneak, Snipe or Opportunity ones.



So, for the challenge, this were the starting conditions:

Mana Limit: 20

Rulesets: Silenced Summoners (no boosts) and Lost Magic (no cards with magic damage)


Mine - Summoner: Drake of Arnak, as this was my highest level Dragon summoner, level 6, with Shieldbearer as main tank, with Taunt and Shield, an Soul Fiend to protect my Silvershield Assassin from an eventual blast skill, while it is using his skills, Poison, Double Strike and Sneak, to kill the monsters in the back of the army, and a Silvershield Bard to cleanse poison and give extra Speed.

Opponent - Summoner: Tarsa, with no boosts, a level 2 Grum as main tank, with Bloodlust as unique skill, Void armor and Void skill to resist magic, a Radiated Brute with Reach, attacking from the second place and a Scorth Fiend, to protect from Sneak, most probably.

This was a interesting battle, with the opponent Brute and the Fiend killed in the first 2 rounds, and Grum eliminated in the third round. I think the opponent mistake was to bet all his money on Grum, which is useless without Armor Repair or Heal support.

Star of the game - The one and only, my Silvershield Assassin


On the side note, my continuous support for is going well, with my SPT tokens number raising to 1 million. All of it is delegated to @monster-curator, as this account is doing a great work curating the best posts on the forum. Next, I am slowly building some SPT power (83K at the moment) to manually curate on also.

All the best, George
