Good day, Splinterlands! For today's post, I would like to share one of my battles with Diemonshark. This monster is part of my standard lineup whenever I use the Water element, if the mana cap permits. Let me share how it's Trample ability was activated at the right time, leading me to victory. Let's look at it.
Here is a quick rundown of Diemonshark stats.
Edition: CHAOS LEGION
Abilities: TRAMPLE AT LVL 1, ENRAGE AT LVL 4, RETALIATE AT LVL 7
Diemonsharks travel alone throughout the stars searching for prey and territory. They are fearsome beasts with lightning-fast reflexes. Diemonsharks are extremely territorial and attack any creature that encroaches on their land. The Chaos Legion trains them as transports for equipment. Since they can travel by air, ground, or sea, they are ideally suited for the task.
|Level||Regular BCX||Gold BCX||Attack||Speed||Armor||Health||Abilities|
|7||85||16||3||4||6||9||Trample, Enrage, Retaliate|
|8||115||22||4||4||6||10||Trample, Enrage, Retaliate|
|ENRAGE - Has increased Melee attack and Speed when damaged|
|TRAMPLE - When a Monster with Trample hits and kills its target, it will perform another attack on the next Monster on the enemy Team|
The Modern Format ruleset for this fight are Equal Opportunity wherein all Monsters have the Opportunity ability and Stampede wherein the Trample ability can trigger multiple times per attack if the trampled Monster is killed. This is quite a good opportunity to use monsters with Trample ability, like the Diemonshark. The maximum amount of mana allowed is 38. The available elements are Fire, Water, Death and Dragon. I used a Level 4 Diemonshark in this battle and at Level 4, it also has the Enrage ability that works well with Trample ability. The opponent also used Diemonshark and also at Level 4.
In Round 2, the opponent's Diemonshark's Trample was activated. It has higher attack speed than my Diemonshark because of Baakjira's Slow. And due to the opponent Diemonshark's high speed, it was able to land and defeated my Coeurl Lurker and was able to activate its Trample. Good thing is that my Torrent Fiend has 1 Shield from Kelya Frendul.
Moving to Round 4, my Diemonshark, Deeplurker and Demented Shark's attack against the opponent's Diemonshark missed. This shows how Enrage greatly affects the flow of the battle.
In Round 5, my Deeplurker was able to land a hit to Diemonshark and was able to defeat it.
In Round 6, my Diemonshark received damage and its Enrage was activated. Its attack speed increased to 8 and its attack power to 5.
Moving to Round 8, enemy Nerissa Tridawn annihilated my Deeplurker and the only monster remained on my side is Diemonshark. With 2 Magic Attack monsters in the opponent side, my Diemonshark's speed will not be able to evade their attack. Good thing is that my Diemonshark attacked first and killed opponent Djinn Oshannus and activated its Trample ability and was able to inflict damage to Nerissa Tridawn as well.
In the same round, Nerissa Tridawn inflicted 3 damage to my Diemonshark, almost killing it.
In Round 9, Diemonshark attacked first and was able to hit Nerissa Tridawn, making me the winner in this battle. I got 3,627 reward points, 0.177 SPS and 21 rating points.
Here is the full replay in Splinterlands and Youtube
For me, this is one amazing battle. Each monsters from both sides dealt damage to each other simultaneously bringing the battle to a close fight. My Diemonshark won, but left with 1 HP only. One of my takeaways in this battle is that having cards at the correct level and situation will really helped you win the battle. If I used a Diemonshark that is lower than Level 4, it will not have the Enrage ability and the chance to miss its attack will increase.
