Against the "Lazarus Defense" | Curious Battles 37#
What's up? Here I am back with another battle to share, this time facing a strategy that I call Lazarus Defense, due to the constant resurrections.
From Splinterlands and edited with CANVA
Djinn Chwala was my primary tank, with his ability "thorns" I was looking to affect the enemy physical attackers, however there was more magical offensive from the opponent. His chosen tank was "shieldbearer" which turned out to be the "Lazarus" of this battle, he stayed in the battle for quite a while, thanks to the two resuscitators present and his armor healer and repairer.
For the second position, I opted for my Robo-Dragon Knight, I wanted to try the double tank strategy and that this second one was able to withstand the magical punishment that often occurs in the strategies of the league in which I am. In addition to the Melee Mayhem battle condition, it would allow him to contribute a lot to the offense. The opponent put Silvershield Assasin, a strong addition with 2 points of damage and double strike, which allows it to be 4 points if it hits both hits.
For the third position the radiant Bila was taking advantage of the battle condition Equalizer to make her "Life Leech" skill shine like never before, managing to absorb many life points from my team and increasing her life even more to keep her standing for a long time. Even though void was an ability I prioritized, it wasn't enough to counter all the enemy magic.
The third monster I chose also had void, Djinn Oshannus tried to counter the enemy strategy with his summoner-boosted attack and his good resistance, but the double resurrection added to the healing and armor repair resulted in a defensive wall similar to the walls of Troy.
In fourth position a short-healer was on the lookout, Captain's Ghost, who managed to affect the double-hit assassin and also the shining legend of the fourth enemy position, although for the latter it didn't do much good because Life Leech doesn't stop for that. However, she still managed to deliver the coup de grace to that brilliant foe.
In the end, there were two powerful golden supports, a legend and a classic that is not to be underestimated. Both made the opposing defense so tight that I could not break through it in its entirety. As for me, the final part of the strategy was the Achilles heel that led me to defeat, because I placed Demented Shark to increase physical damage and Stone Fish to tank. If I had placed more magic offense, things could have been different.

Extra Curious facts:
For the final stretch, the enemy combo managed to create a loop in which Demented Shark got wrapped up, this loop was similar to one I talked about some time ago in another of the curious battles shared, specifically number #32. The armor repair did not allow him to defeat the priest, even though the priest could not be healed.
Another curious fact I want to share is that this strategy I faced is not uncommon and in fact I encountered it again recently, only this time the result was more favorable for my team, although to be honest, in this second encounter, the levels were lower.
