Greetings, I'm back with another battle for the weekly challenge. Today's protagonist has quite an Asian theme, like from the times of Japanese Samurais.
In the first position, the popular Living Magma appears on both sides, which is not surprising as it is a recurring tank in this league. His "Shield" ability has given him a good reputation, in addition to his attack points and armor, although his speed sometimes betrays him.
For the second place "Giant Rock" appears in my battle territory, with 2 speed, 1 damage + 1 for the summoner buff and 4 + 1 life point, despite its low speed, I chose it over "Magma Troll" because it offers "Flying", which increases the chances of dodging enemy attacks. Although this was not necessary, as the enemy team did not resist enough to even try to hit him.
On the enemy side was "Magma Troll", another good option for low mana fights that with "Reach", can attack from second place, an ability that "Giant Rock" also has.
"Serpetine Spy" was back in this battle, this reliable and fast card has been the annoyance of many and just like "Living Magma" is very recurrent in the Bronze and Silver league. His ability "Opportunity" does justice to his reputation of being a headache, as he focuses his attention on the monsters with less life to kill them as soon as possible. Like Tenyii and L. Magma, "Serpetine Spy" was in both teams.
This battle had very similar strategies!
The complete alineation was:
The design of "Tenyii Striker" reminds me a lot of a rather old series that my classmates a little older than me used to talk about when I was in elementary school. That series was called "Samurai X", the design also resembles Cartoon Network's "Samurai Jack".
As an extra curious fact, they recently made major changes to the daily and per-battle rewards, SPS are starting to be seen a lot more!
You can learn more about it if you check out the recent post from the Splinterlands team on the subject.
This card is one of those that as its level rises, it scales as if it were a Shonen style anime. It becomes faster, more powerful and tremendously dangerous. He gets abilities that increase his evasion and even his enemies receive damage if they fail against him (BackFire). Its current price per card is around 0.60$ approximately, which translates into about 69$ if you want to take it to its maximum level (buying cards individually) or about 50$ according to one currently offered at that level.
