in Splinterlands2 months ago



Hi! @saydie here playing Splinterlands everyday!

This week, I'm here once again to make another battle showcase with the goal of helping to learn and discover new strategies on the game and for the battle that I'm gonna show you this time features the use the the Martyr ability to buffed the stats of Doctor Blight which have the following stats.

Doctor Blight was a promo card that belongs to the Chaos Legion and can only be acquired packs during the presale of the CL set. It was a magic Splinter that cost 4 mana to use with 2 damage, 1 speed and 4 health at max level. Looking at its stats, it seems week compared to the other cards with the same mana cost but it compensates its lows stats with its abilities. First, it has Affliction and Camouflage at level 1 which prevents its target from healing and prevents them from attacking this card. When it reaches level 2, it gains Poison which cause its target to lose health every round and at level 3, it gains Scavenger which increases its health for every monster that was defeated. Finally, at level 4, it gets Weaken which will reduce the health of all opponents monsters by -1.

This battle was between @crimepoet which is an alternate account I'm playing with Nfty Arcade deck delegation which has now reached Champion League just today and this is one of the deciding battles that have helped me to climb. This got 27 mana cap and only Fire element can be used on battle.

When it comes to the ruleset, there was Born again which gives all monsters the Rebirth ability and Target practice that gives range and magic monsters the Snipe ability. With this in consideration, I choose the following cards.

With limited mana and only fire element available, I was left with Tarsa as my summoner which gives +1 health and melee on all monsters.
For my tank, I used Antoid Platoon which has Shield to reduce damage from melee and range attacks and also come with Scavenger that increases its health for each monster that dies.
Has the Sneak ability which allows it to attack backline monsters and can also inflict Poison on its target.
Was my first sacrificial monster with its Martyr increases the stats of the monster adjacent to it when it dies.
The MVP of this battle. Will get a big stat boost at the end of the battle.
Another sacrificial card with the Martyr ability.
Just a placeholder for the last position but its Redemption will deal 1 damage on all opponent monsters when it dies.
