Hello Splinterlands friends. It's good to connect with you all once again after a week of reduced activities on this blockchain. At time, we just need to attend top other offline activities with a lot of energies and focus.
As usual, I resumed my week on Hive the Splinterlands game. Today, I had an exciting time battling this week's theme card for Share your Battle Challenge - LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR a legendary monster unit**. I didn't own the card, I decided to rent it for a few days and I've engaged a lot of battles with it already with 50% win.
This post would also be my entry to the challenge, I hope my entry would be valid since it is not a video but a text post, however, I have a link to my battle. Below were the prescription for the battle:
Theme: LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR
Edition: CHAOS LEGION
Abilities: Void Armor
LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR is a neutral card. A card with the Neutral element is a free card for all battles where rules do not exclude it. The cards can also harmonize with all other elements and occupies the gaps in and between them. You can use the neutral monster units with just any summoner.
My lineup for the Battle
For the reported battle, LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR was the only neutral monster units, other units were fire cards since I used the Fire Summoner - TARSA.
TARSA is arare Fire summoner in the Choas Legion cards set. It has an estimated power of 20 with a manna cap of 4. The summoner adds +1 Melee attack to all friendly monsters. It also adds +1 Health to all friendly monsters. This means that the TARSA summoner is best used with melee attack monsters. Glad that LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR is a melee attack monster.
LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR monster unit
LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR is rated 9 manna, 4 health, 2 melee attack, 2 speed, 8 armor, and 6 Health and has the opportunity ability. The VOID ability of the monster makes magic attacks from enemies to hit its armor before health. We can also say that the monster has a hooping 14 health for battles.
The monster can only attack from the first position and would rarely be attacked by other enemy monsters except there are no other monster in the second line. Higher levels of LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR cards also have the Giant killer, demoralize and deathblow abilities. It is a card to own. I hope to buy the card soon.
In a previous battle, I placed LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR on the second position and the battle finished, yet, it didn't make an attack but was attacked. I decided to place LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR at the first position to lead the fight. With TARSA as sumoner, the Health and Melee attack of LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR increased by +1 each. Below is an the lineup of the monster units used for the battle.
- First position: LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR - I used this theme monster unit in the first position because of its high stats in armor (8) and health (6 +1). I was sure it would make a good first place defense and attack with 2+1 melee.
- Second position: Tenyll Striker. - I placed this monster card second on the lineup since it has the sneak ability to attack last monster in the enemy's team.
- Third Position: Radiated Scorcher - My choice of this monster unit was because I needed a card with just 1 manna rating. It is just a reglar mele atack card with no special ability.
This battle was so exciting and I can say the best with LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR monster unit. Battling against 5 monsters got easier with LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR's 3 melee hit and massive armor as well as Tenyll's sneak ability with 3 melee. Here is the battle link once again.
Radiated Scorcher was brought down. However, LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR, stood strong to bring down all enemy monsters with 3 health left.
I won the battle with 22 rating points and t was a really satisfying win. The battle lasted for 8 rounds.
The above line-up is my best combination for battles with LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR so far. However, would want to battle with all neutral monster cards to see the outcome.
It's been an interesting run with LEGIONNAIRE ALVAR so far. I'll be engaging more battles with this unique monster unit.
