So my first full Splinterlands season just ended and I enjoyed it quite a lot. When I started playing, there were only about 4 days left in the season so I was just playing and going with the flow, trying to get used to the different monsters and abilities etc etc...basically just getting used to the whole Splinterlands interface and the different features.
This season I was better accustomed with all the different features and so I could pay more attention to strategies, mine and my opponents'. Towards the end of the season I kept hovering around Gold I and diamond III and I was finding it quite difficult to progress through the Diamond 3. Every time I got in it, I kept losing a few and falling back to Gold 1.
I kept losing especially the lower mana games as my go to tanks were usually quite high mana like the Goblin Mech and I wasn't left with too much option for the rest of the positions. So I was looking for a low mana, good health and strong Meele tank.
Another problem I kept facing from my opponents was the use of monsters with heal ability. It was like whatever damage I do, it just gets wiped away. It was very frustrating. The only two tanks I had with the heal were Cerberus from fire splinter and Sea Monster from the water splinter. Both had their disadvantages. Cerberus, although only 4 mana, had too little health for my liking. And Sea monster was 8 mana, with too little speed. It's good for reverse speed battles though.
As I said, this season I was also observing my opponent's strategies and trying to learn from the other experienced players. And one monster that impressed me massively was Flesh Golem. What a beast! Only 6 mana with 10 health, 3 speed and 2 meele attack! On top of that, at level 3 it had the heal that I was looking for! It didn't take me too long to buy 5 Flesh Golem from Monster Market and combine them to a level 3 Flesh Golem!
The heal ability fascinates me so much that I tried to come up with a strong strategy to frustrate my opponents. And I looked further into the earth monsters and found a perfect strategy that worked really well for me in a lot of the battles. I call this strategy, Healing the Earth!
