Splinterlands Card Review - Conqueror Jacek
Hello everyone! Lester here! How's your recent battles? I hope your are getting good drops from focus chests. Speaking of drops (airdrops), as of writing, the next airdrop is at 58% completion to unlock the next character - Conqueror Jacek! For this post, let's review this legendary Summoner to know what to do if you manage to get one. The goal: to hopefully acquire cards that will be compatible with Conqueror Jacek. Are you excited to receive this legendary summoner card? Let's check it out!
Card Details at Level 1
Edition: Chaos Legion
All friendly monsters receive the Scattershot ability at the start of the battle.
All friendly monsters receive the Piercing ability at the start of the battle.
All friendly Monsters have +2 Speed.
This monster's attacks hit a random enemy target. Piercing
If Melee or Ranged attack damage is in excess of the target's Armor, the remainder will damage the target's Health.
With the emergence of Conqueror Jacek in the land of Splinterlands, Fire element will be boosted again that will help them win each and every battle. It's like a combination of Pyre and Qid Yuff but an enhanced one. Let's start with Scattershot. In Fire element, only Blood Maker has the Scattershot ability so it's kinda cool to see your Ranged and Magic attack monsters randomly attacking the opponent. And if you think Random shots are a disadvantage, well I partially agree to you. Because it has no focus shot, it might take longer to defeat the monster in the first position. But it also has its benefits.
Explosive Weaponry: All Monsters have the Blast ability. If you encounter a battle with Explosive Weaponry in the Ruleset, there is a chance that your Scattershot will target the middle of the enemy line up. And it will create more damage even if you do not have a monster with Snipe or Opportunity ability. What is more interesting is that Scattershot will ignore Taunt ability. So if you are kinda fed up with Shieldbearer+Tank Heal+Repair, you might want to try a line up with Scattershot ability. Check this video of mine wherein Scattershot ignored Shieldbearer's Taunt ability.
How about Piercing? This is quite a counter to Grandmaster Rathe's +1 Armor and other summoners that provide armor buff. And I am pretty sure that cards with Trample will surely love this buff. Here are the monsters from Fire and Neutral Elements with Trample ability. With the addition of Piercing ability, there a chance that you may wipe-out your opponent's line up using single monster.
The last but not the list, the +2 Speed buff. Fire Elements also have monsters with high speed stats even at Level 1. For instance, the Elemental Phoenix has 5 Speed at Level 1 plus it has Flying ability. A +2 speed buff will give quite the boost needed to secure victory. And take a look at the Dodge ability at level 4. Sweet!
Cons There are surely lots of Pros when using Conqueror Jacek, however, there are also cons. The +2 Speed will be a disadvantage when the ruleset has Reverse Speed. Conqueror Jacek costs 6 mana to summon so using it in low mana cap battles quite a disadvantage, also. The Scattershot ability, if luck is not on your side, will target a different card each turn, making it difficult to eliminate a single target, especially position 1 cards. In conclusion, it is still a case to case basis in terms of the line up that you need to use. But overall, Conqueror Jacek is a good addition to Fire Element and gives vast option to players.
