Why is everyone hating on the chicken?
Why is everyone dumping their chickens?
The market price of the Furious Chicken has tumbled from $35+/BCX to about $21/BCX for a single unlevelled chicken... and a lvl 6 or lvl 7 chicken is going to cost you just $8.88/BCX now.
WHY? WHY? WHY?
Fair enough... I get that the new Chaos Legion Fiends are the newest (and better) 0-mana options, and if I have just 1 slot left in my line-up, I'm definitely taking a Fiend over a chicken... BUT... what if you have 2 (or more) slots open... as is often the case in very low mana cap games.
Take this battle ( https://splinterlands.com?p=battle&id=sl_b4f604f9d78955a3aec64ffff796b1fc&ref=braaiboy ) for example...
P.s. I was on a snipe quest, hence the inclusion of the (rather expensive) Mantoid in this game. I almost certainly would have had a different line-up were it not for the requirement of including a sniper... but even with 2 x lower mana cost cards, I would STILL have had 2 open slots.
So yes, while the Scorch Fiend dealt the final blow, my fiend would not have survived were it not for the chicken 'taking one for the team', leaving my Mantoid in the first position, and unable to attack I would have lost the game.
