Hello there! @saydie here, playing Splinterlands everyday!

This will be my entry for this weeks Battle Mage Secrets with the featured ruleset Explosive Weaponry. This is a ruleset that gives the Blast ability on all monsters.

The Battle that I will show to you this week was from my @crimepoet account which is an alt account I'm using Nfty Arcade with max level CL deck and was playing at the modern format of the Diamond League. Before I show you the battle, let us learn more about this ruleset.

Rule Set Icon
Explosive Weaponry
All Monsters have the blast.png Blast ability.
Blast is an ability that inflicts damage on monsters that are adjacent to the target.

The best strategy is to have fast monsters with Snipe, Sneak, Opportunity and Scattershot. For defense, Shield and Void will come in handy.

My Team


This battle has a 17 mana limit to use for cards where the active ruleset were Lost Magic, Up to Eleven and the featured ruleset for this week which was Explosive Weaponry. With this in consideration, my lineup was consist of:

Summoner: Tarsa - Tarsa as a summoner gives +1 damage on all melee monsters and at the same time, gives all ally monsters +1 health which can help my team to tank some of those Blast damage.

  • 1st Position: Antoid Platoon - A small mana tank with the Shield ability allowing it to recived less damage from melee and range attack and for each monsters that will die in battle, this will gain +1 health due to its Scavenge ability.

  • 2nd Position: Venator Kinjo has the Reflection Shield ability which makes it invulnerable to Blast damage and at the same time, it has Camouflage which makes it untargetable by the opponent. It also has Immunity to negative status effects while reducing the speed of all the opponent monsters with Slow as long as it remains on the battle.

  • 33d Position: Uraesu - A melee monster that has Sneak, allowing it to attack backline monster and has the chance to Poison the target.

Battle Recap

Here is a replay of the battle which at you can watch at Splinterlands.

Did My Strategy Work?

And with it comes the end of my battle for this week with Explosive Weaponry ruleset. As you see, both parties got Reflection Shield with them in order to block the damage from Blast and what it ends up was who will defeat the opponent first which at some point, I thought I would lose if not for my Poison working on the target on the first attack.

That was it for this post. Thank you and see you at the next one.
