Splinterlands Pack Opening (with Giveaway ) #1 "The LIFE of the party"

Pack giveaway.png

Chaos Legion is here, and I decided I'd like to start early: I opened my last Vouchered Pack from the Phase II sale, and I plan to giveaway some cards from each pack I open from now until the Chaos Legion sells out! Each pack, I'll briefly talk about the cards I get, and give away a card, or two, or three!

That's right, Giveaways are back! But first...:

Let's check out the pack opening!:

Obviously the highlight of this pack is Prismologist and GF Stitch Leech, which will give my Life deck a much needed boost. I have 1 GF Stitch Leech already, so I'll be delegating this one to my alt account for some bonus CP. Let's talk a bit about the cards though, just to make this a bit more useful, feel free to skip if you don't care much for tips or uses for each card, there will be a Giveaway Header at the end

Card Tips & Tricks

image.png

Chaos Knight

Normal Foil, Common, Life Monster

One of my favorite new cards, actually, for Life. Some of my favorites include Stitch Leech and Time Mage. Chaos Knight is a surprisingly bulky anti-melee and anti-ranged defender who has Shield at level 1, making her a great choice, and in some rulesets and combinations, even better than Shieldbearer!

I love to pair Truthspeaker and Crystalsmith with her, giving her a lot of sustain and armor. If I really don't expect magic, or if I think they're going mostly melee/range, I'll use Scavo Hireling as well. Of course, Time Mage and Stitch Leech are also good combinations with this card. She is particularly powerful in No Sneak/Snipe and Lost Magic, where she is an absolute bastion of defense.

I don't recommend her in No Armor and in No Range rulesets.

Prismologist

Normal Foil, Epic, Life Monster

A very powerful card that needs little to no explanation, she is a straight damage oriented powerhouse, with her blast ability making her even more lethal. This is my first copy, so I haven't had the pleasure of using Prismologist yet, and I am oh so excited to bust this bad girl out.

Since I haven't used her, I am largely guessing here: I think I will like her a lot with Blinding Reflector leveled to 5 in front, and a **Truthspeaker **and Scavo Hireling. She's a very very very powerful play in the Snipe ruleset, and in the Lost Magic ruleset, where her armor will really shine. As a high mana card without Close Range, I do NOT recommend her in low or low-mid mana, but she's definitely a must in high mana matchups.

I don't recommend her in Blast or Armored rulesets.

Hardy Stonefish

Normal Foil, Common, Water Monster

The odd one out of this Life focused pack, Hardy Stonefish is actually one of my favorite 1 Mana cards. I have a battle from way back of a Hardy Stonefish, a Scavo Hireling, and a Venari Wavesmith slaying a Kraken in low mana because Kraken simply couldn't break the almighty durability of the Hardy Stonefish. Come at me low mana Kraken players and get your $100 dollar card stomped by a $1 team, lol

Hardy Stonefish is much better in its GF form, where you can easily capitalize on its 10% DEC Bonus in most teams. (NFA: Buy 1 of each of the 1 mana GFs.) but this card is an excellent stopping piece for a powerful Water Melee Sneak build, or for a Water Ranged build in low mana. For example, I like to stack a bunch of 1 Mana and 0 Manas in front, and place Venari Wavesmith, Axe Master, and if mana allows: an Ice Pixie. There's a lot of riff raff to get through before you hit the real damage source and usually it shreds. Hardy Stonefish, because of its tiny mana cost, is pretty general: You can use it in almost any situation, with the exception of high mana battles.

I don't recommend Hardy Stonefish in No Armor or Snipe rulesets.

Blinding Reflector

Normal Foil, Common, Life Monster

Blinding Reflector isn't a bad card, but he's a little underwhelming in Bronze. His armor, decent health, and low cost make him a useful low mana pick, but it doesn't solidify his role in Life. That is, until he hits Level 5 and gains Magic Reflect, becoming one of THE anti-magic cards for Life, especially in low mana, where Life has previously struggled against magic.

That's not to say he's a bad card, again: He's great in No Sneak/Snipe, and in Lost Magic. He's also a really solid pick for very low mana Life, such as anything below 15 Mana. But, as a Level 1, you will not be using him nearly as much as these other Life cards I've pulled.

I do NOT recommend him in No Armor or Snipe

Stitch Leech

Gold Foil, Common, Life Monster

This was my first Gold Foil, when I pulled a pack way back at the beginning of Phase II! I was so excited then, and I'm still excited now: Stitch Leech is a cool one, with 2 melee at 3 Mana, and sneak, he's an absolute must in most teams. He's not quite Serpentine Spy, but he's close enough that I want every GF and Normal Foil I can get my hands on! This, and Time Mage are likely my two favorite Life monsters so far in Chaos Legion, although I have plenty more to earn and try out.
