SILVERSHIELD WARRIOR: The guardian of khmyeria

in The City of Neoxian2 months ago

Hello famz, Big kudos to the steemmonsters team and the amazing curators for their wonderful support.... i hope we will continue to grow, steemmonsters is here to stay!

This week battle challenge is using the Silvershied warrior to win in a particular battle and as usual i will like to take the readers on a trip to get to know this card before dropping the battles and line up..

The Warriors of the Silver Shield are the first line of defense for Khmyeria. They live simple lives, ready to be deployed at any moment, even though most of their missions are trivial errands. When a battalion of Warriors is deployed, the tips of their spears often find trouble where there is none.


Edition: Beta/Alpha
Rarity: common
Element: Life

The Silvershied warrior is a 4 mana card with 3 armor at max, he has only one ability which is the reach which allows it to be used in the second position as melee power cards can only attack from the front except those with unique ability like sneak and opportunity abiliities...

I love to use this card mostly in rules like fog of war and little league cos of his low mana cap and his reach ability, so i was paired with #myronsmashers and the rules of the battle was:


  • Reverse speed: Monsters with the lowest speed attack first and have the highest chance of evading attacks.
  • Lost legendaries: Legendary monsters may not be used in battles

I couldn't think of a better splinter to use to counter this rule than the life splinter

This card is a 5 mana card and it is bestowed with 2 unique abilities which are the shield that reduced damage from melee and range attacks and magic reflect that does back damage to magic attack monsters... i used it as my first card due to his ability to withstand hits...



I used this card as my 2nd card because of his reach ability, it can offer good support to my paladin at that position and will also help in taking down the opponent front monster faster....



The grandma is one of the most used card in life splinter due to its amazing healing ability, i used it in the third postion so it can help restore paladin's life..



I used the chicken as my last card incase my opponent comes with sneak monsters or monsters with the opportunity ability as they will target the chicken first due to its very low life and then it cost no mana and it will definitely save my fighting monsters one strike.

Did your strategy work? What will you try differently next time?

Yes, it worked perfectly but next time i might use lord arianthus instead of paladin, they both have shield, the difference is lord arianthus is no-attack monsters but still it has the thorns ability.

Do you use the SILVERSHIELD WARRIOR often? Why or why not?

I don't use it often cos i am not a fan of monsters with the reach ability, i prefer using sneak and snipe than reach...
