A Gem Of A Challenge!
Every week, @splinterlands posts a challenge for players to post about their battle, using a specific card or splinter. This week’s challenge, is to use Gem Meteor!
All monsters have the snipe and trample abilities!
Mana is capped at 54!
Here is my battle:
So, here was the team I put together:
Since, the challenge is to use Gem, a neutral monster, I could pick any summoner! I picked, Drake of Arnak- a powerful Dragon Summoner! Drake is at level 3 and adds an armor stat to each friendly monster!! I picked him, so I could use Longtail!
The Drake of Arnak is a medium-sized Dragon hybrid. He is highly intelligent and extremely rich, but cannot fly nor breathe fire. All his life he has honed his skills as a summoner, hoping to win a share of the glory that should rightfully be his as a carrier of the fire blood. The Drake's trademark is that his monsters are summoned to battle with a thin force field of blue fire, fortifying their defenses. Forms have been filed by the High Council to formally request that the Drake of Arnak hand over his secrets for the good of the united Gloridax, but he will not give up his proprietary magic without a fight. The Drake of Arnak is the Gloridax rival of Daria Dragonscale; the two despise one another.
I was already feeling confident, but let’s get to my monster line-up!
In my tank position, I chose Agor Longtail. It is a legendary monster, and its stats are just incredible. It flies to help evade enemy attack, taunts the enemy monsters, and void magic attacks. It is the ultimate tank, and I would have to be a bonehead to not have picked Agor!
Carnage Titan followed. I love everything about this card. He's quick, has good health, and can pack a punch! It's reach ability, allows it to attack from the second position and Carnage Titan can attack twice per round!
I then chose, Diamond Dragon! The armor stats are awesome, but the rest are just OK. I'd like this card because it slows the enemy down and it can fly to evade attack.
Wood Nymph was chosen to be in the fourth position. This card has some decent stats, bui I mainly chose this card for the tank heal ability. Tank Heal Restores a portion of the Monster in the first position's health each round.
Gem Meteor was selected for fifth position! I never used this card befor and I mainly picked it for the challenge! It does have a pretty cool ability though! Scattershot
This Monster's attacks hit a random enemy target.
Vampiric Blossom, anchored the team. It has decent stats, but the Oppress
Ability is pretty cool. Oppress Does double damage when attacking an enemy that has no attack.
My battle went 11 rounds, and it was very close. I was only left with two monsters. I was very happy with the team I assembled, and was very pleased with my victory ✌🏽
