Hello there! @saydie here, playing Splinterlands everyday!

This will be my entry for this weeks Battle Mage Secrets with the featured ruleset Fab Four. This is a new ruleset that limits the use of monsters to up to four monsters.

The Battle that I will show to you this week was from @bltzr-wizard-726 which is the scholar account I'm playing from Balthazar Guild in partnership with Side Door Ventures and was currently playing on Diamond League of the Modern format but before I reveal the battle, let us learn more about this ruleset.

Up to Four Units can be used in battle.

Basically, this is just like the Standard ruleset but with 2 less cards to use regardless of the mana available so even when there is 99 mana cap, the number of cards that can be used was still capped at four.

Opponent's Line- up


My Team


This battle has a 26 mana limit to use for cards where the active ruleset were Melee Mayhem and the featured ruleset for this week which was Fab Four. With this in consideration, my lineup was consist of:

Summoner: Grandmaster Rathe - Gives +1 armor on all ally monster together with Void Armor which makes magic attack unable to get through armor and Amplify which increases reflected damage by +1.

  • 1st Position: Dumacke Orc - Has the Shield ability which reduces the damage from melee and range attacks together with Retaliate which allows it to attack when it was attack by melee monster while Thorns would inflict -2 damage on melee monsters that will attack this card.

  • 2nd Position: Blinding Reflector With Magic Reflect, it can return magic damage back to the attacker and it gives 15% chance for opponents to miss their attack with Blind.

  • 33d Position: Jared Scar - It has True Strike which makes its attacks not to miss its target and Piercing which makes its attack to deal the excess damage from the targets armor to its health. What's more is that when it defeats its target, all of its stats will gain +1 increase because of its Bloodlust ability.

  • 4th Position: Venari Crystalsmith - It has the Tank Heal ability which allows it to restore the health of the monster in the first position and with Dispel it removes the buffs of its target.

Battle Recap

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

Did My Strategy Work?

Since the Fav Four ruleset basically just reduce the number of monsters that can be used in battle to 4, the result of the battle pretty much relies on who reads the opponents better but also the one who can use his mana the most also got the more advantage to this battle.

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