Splinterland secret battle mage challenge: Briar Patch

in Splinterlands4 months ago

Today's battle mage challenge is another interesting ruleset that will demand some level of intuitive skill combined with good strategy in this week challenge all monsters will be having thorn ability which mean if you're season player that prefer using melee attacking monsters for most of your battle ruleset then you must need to rethink twice before coming up with all your lineup monsters as melee units.

Hint for this ruleset is simple avoid using melee monsters as much as you can and opt in for range or magic attacking monsters, splinterland is fun once you can understand how the game rules works and when and how to come up with monster then you're good to go!

Briar patch ruleset gives lineup monsters thorn ability monster with melee attacks receive double damage, while melee attacking monsters with shield reflection are immune to thorn damage adding this monsters will be an added advantage to any summoner having amplify ability monster are also a plus advantage to players.

In this ruleset summoners must be very sensitive when it comes to choosing their lineup sneak, and opportunity monsters without shield reflection will only tale multiple damage on each attack.

Battle detail

The cost mana cap for this battle is 19 which means players will be limited to come up with monsters with low mana cost I decided to use double summoners unit for this ruleset combing water and death element monster thanks to new tactics introduced with rebellion edition cards. All my lineup monsters consist more of magic attacking monsters with one range attacking monster.

Battle lineup

DJINN OSHANNUS my first lineup monster is a magic attacker with void ability it can reduce magic attack from opponent monsters by 50% since for this ruleset players will likely come up with more magic attacking monsters my tank will be a good bet for this position.

My strategy

For this battle ruleset my strategy was very simple avoid the use of melee monsters and use more of magic or range.

My strategy did workout well as my opponent also went all in with magic attackers although I managed to beat my opponent because of my additional health repair monster which gave my tank more time to last in the battle arena.

Battle arena
