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, but the crypto rewards (DEC is the name of their native token) can be used on ETH, TRX, WAX and on the lately added Binance Smart Chain (you can provide liquidity to mine CUB on Cub Finance). You can also provide liquidity on ETH network, but this is a bit more expensive, even if you get some Uniswap bonus in DEC paid straight to your game account (I got 3-4000 DEC monthly with around 60K DEC providing liquidity). DEC is similar with a stablecoin, most of the time, 1000 DEC being $1.
And now it is easier than before (one of my main complain was about beginners not having enough cards at the start) because they offer quite a lot of cards not to the one starting to play, making it a more pleasant experience - I remember losing game after game when I just started 7 month ago, so I am glad that the developers sorted this out. There are big changes and improvements coming soon, according to the Hive rumor mill. No more Mystery potions starting from June, also no more changing Alpha into Beta cards. Just check this awesome page about what are the Lands supposed to do.
On this week challenge we have a Epic Untamed card from the Water Splinter, The Coral Wraith with 3 Magic Attack, 4 Health, 4 Mana to use and 3 Speed at max level, Sneak ability at level 1 (target the last monster in the enemy team) and Rust at level 4 (reduces Armor for all enemies). For a Level 4 card with Sneak and Rust you may need to pay $15 right now.
So, for the challenge, this were the starting conditions:
Mana Limit: 40
Rulesets: None - Standard game
Mine - Summoner: Alric (+1 Magic Damage boost), Sea Monster, Lobstradamus, Coral Wraith, Captain Ghost, Albatross, Phantom of the Abiss
Opponent - Summoner: Tyrus (+1 Armor boost for the own team), Shieldbearer, Silvershield Knight, Sand Worm, Spirit Miner, Divine Healer, Peace Bringer
As I already wanted to use Lobstradamus to see how it is tanking, and Wraith, I chose the Magic Booster Summoner, and I manage to have the Sea Monster for self healing, Lobstradamus as secondary tank (Shield, Magic Reflect and Thorns baby, with 12 Health), Coral Wraith for Sneak and Rust, Captain and Phantom for extra magic damage and Albatross as healing support. The opponent has a heavy armored team, so not much of a problem for full magic boost. So overpowered that I finished the match with no damage taken in the end.
On the side note, my continuous support for Splintertalk.io is going well, with my SPT tokens number raising a bit over half a million. 91% of my target reached and hopefully the 1 million will be done in one or two months. A bit difficult now as the price went up a lot. All of it is delegated to @monster-curator, as this account is doing a great work curating the best posts on the forum.
All the best,
