Splinterlands | Gelatinous Cube Challenge
I usually play quite quick and automated in order to complete the daily quests and rarely find the time to sit down and actually play the game properly. There is a lot that I can still optimize as I never really look at what my opponent played in previous matches. Trying to win a match including the Gelatinous Cube Certainly was a challenge and it took me a 7 game losing streak before getting a win with it.
The main reason I won that match on top was because my opponent was lower rank and didn't exactly played a strong line-up which even included a level 1 card. Battle Video Link
The rules of that particular match were Super Sneak and I played my Golden Furious Chicken at the end which gave the Gelatinous Cube automatically 1 life extra. I tend to go all out on the rules with my decks meaning I played the +1 Melee Fire Splinter with mostly Melee Cards. In the first position, I played Cerebrus Level 5 which I recently purchased. followed by 2 other cheap melee cards and the Fire Deamon which has the blast ability.
Overall I had an easy win, but the 7 games before that I felt I was in a real disadvantage because I pretty much forced the Gelatinous Cube onto the game rules.
Lesson Learned: I learned 1 major lesson today doing this challenge which is that triple heal can easily get countered with the Affliction and get you crushed. I haven't got any affliction cards myself but I will certainly keep on the lookout to get one of those.
I'm really liking this Weekly Battle Challenge initiative and it will be a great way to improve my own game and I'll be going through many of the posts to see how others play it successfully. I also plan to make a post on my Publish0x blog to hopefully get some more new players to join in.
