Did your strategy work?

Here's my thought process on this game.
Game is limited to Earth and Dragon elements. It's also limited to Magic and Melee monsters because of Broken Arrows ruleset.
If you are following me, you would think that I would choose Grund line-up on this game.
Unfortunately, this game is in Silver tier league so Grund line-up is not yet effective.
I decided to play Magic so my attacks won't miss.
I chose Obsidian to deal more Magic Damage per round then I planned to distribute my enemy monsters' hit so I can last longer.
I chose Mycelic Slipspawn for Taunt (to disperse enemy hits) and high health.
I chose Spirit Hoarder for Triage to keep Mycelic Slipspawn longer. My Mycelic Slipspawn lasted 3 rounds in this battle, while my opponents' Mycelic Slipspawn died in the first round.
I chose Goblin Psychic for the Tank Heal and Affliction. Since I am dispersing enemy hits, I also need my front monster to last long.
I chose Regal Peryton for the high speed, and Flying ability for a higher longevity in the battlefield.
The other 2 melee monsters are additional meatshield while my magic monsters deal more damage.
I believe my game strategy went well on this game.

What will you try differently next time?

I should have put Djinn Biljka on this game since I still have mana left. This guy went completely out of my radar when I was putting this line-up.
If I have already owned these cards, I would have put any of these.
Mushroom Seer
Spirit Miner
Wood Nymph

Do you like Spirit Hoarder?

Oh yes! Spirit Hoarder has the Triage ability which really helps in my dispersed line-ups. Plus, it's a Neutral card so its Legendary status makes sense.
When playing Gold and Diamond leagues, I almost always play Spirit Hoarder in any game for its Blind ability. That 15% increased chance of evasion is a game changer most of the time.

another good vibe meme

Hope you learned something from my game and how I came up with this lineup.
What would you have done differently given the same ruleset, mana cap and active elements? Let us know by dropping a comment.
