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 ($10) getting DEC tokens and NFT monster cards via daily quests and season quests(every 2 weeks). There is an airdrop daily, for a whole year, currently at day 114/365, I think, and you can still get some nice governance tokens just by playing the game for the next year. Everything counts, cards, DEC on HIVE, WAX, ETH and BSC, lands, titles, skins. You can maximize the airdrop by staking all you SPS for a 48% APR right now. Another way to make profit is to rent cards, getting paid in DEC tokens for it.
Chaos Legion cards pre-sale is done, and somehow I have managed to buy 700 packs, a solid number, much higher than the 500 I expected to get. The second sale will start soon, with double the drop rate for the vouchers. You still need to use them to buy more packs, until beginning of January, when we can finally buy packs with 4$, using just Credits. Even then, if you want to get the extra packs, you still need vouchers. All lands were sold out and will be introduced next, I believe, with a price of 709$ on average for each at the moment. Just check this awesome page about what are the Lands supposed to do.
The Animated Corpse is a Common Death monster, from Alpha/Beta edition, is just 4 Mana cost and at max level it comes with 4 Melee Damage, 3 Speed, no Armor and 9 Health. At level 4 gains Void ( Minus 1 Magic Damage decrease). It is an obvious second choice, as the Haunted Spirit is superior and more durable due to Heal. In case of a ruleset with no heal, is a good choise in order to save 1 extra Mana for superior firepower. It is quite expensive, and if you did not buy it until now, you may not need it, with Chaos legion just around the corner (by the way, 3 days left until you can open the cards).
So, for the challenge, this were the starting conditions:
Mana Limit: 12
Rulesets: Silenced Summoners (no ability for summoners) and Blast (damage reflected to the monsters adiacent to the one who got the hit)
Mine - Summoner: Contessa L'Ament (no boosts) with Animated Corpse like tank, followed by a Cursed Slimeball and a Shadowy Presence at fodder, and the Haunted Spider with Poison as main damage. Last was one Furios Chicken, to prevent some Snipe/Sneak attacks.
Opponent - Summoner: Bortus (no boosts) with Sea Monster as main tank, Two guns Pete as backup damage and a Furious Chicken on the back.
This was a game that underlined why Haunted Spirit is the obvious choice, as this game could have been won easily if the Haunted Spirit with heal was there instead of the Animated Corpse. At the end of the round one I lost the tank and the Slimeball, killing his two monsters on the back, the Chicken and Pete. Then, as expected, I did not have enough firepower to take down the Sea Monster, even if it was Poisoned. My two other ones died one after another.
Star of the game - The opponent Sea Monster, winning the game all by itself.
On the side note, my continuous support for Splintertalk.io 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 (62K at the moment) to manually curate on Splinterlalk.io also.
All the best, George
