You will be so JELLY after you watch this battle!!! My Splinterlands Journey #21

in Splinterlands7 months ago (edited)

My most favorite article to write about is @splinterland's SHARE YOUR BATTLE Weekly Challenge.

The theme of this week's challenge is: GELATINOUS CUBE

The monster Gelatinous Cube is Scavenger and has the ability to gain 1 max health each time any monster dies. It has no attack abilities even at its topmost level.

My Gelatinous Cube is at level 6 with 6/54 cards towards level 7.

At level 6, it has a second ability Heal, which is the ability to restore a portion of its health each round.

I have three battles to share with you this week.

The most dramatic of the three is Battle No. 1 that follows right below. It demonstrates the true abilities and strenght of the Common Neutral Monster GELATINOUS CUBE.


Battle No.1 Close Range/Reverse Speed, Mana 25 Link to above battle

Towards the end of Round 8, my Attack Monsters were all defeated.

The only Monster left on my team was the Gelatinous Cube.

My opponent has not lost a single Monster yet! And I was doomed and sure to lose the battle... my poor Gelatinous Cube does not have the ability to attack!!!

For 16 rounds, my Gelatinous Cube took all the blows and attacks, but remained steadfast and strong!

Finally, every single one of my opponent's Monsters died of fatigue!

And the only Monster that remained standing and victorious in the battlefield was The Gelatinous Cube!!!

The Strategy Worked Like a Charm!!!

I am sure we all try to field the best Monsters in our line-ups. But we never know our opponent's line-up until we face them in the battle field.

My strategy was to use the Gelatinous Cube as a tank. My chosen Summoner Daria can summon Gelatinous Cube with it's Heal abilities. [In Battles 2 and 3, I am using a Summoner that cannot summon level 6 commons monsters.] With the Gelatinous Cube's Heal, I knew that it will outlast many enemy Monsters by the number of monsters that are defeated in the battle.

And true enough, I won the battle because the Common Neutral Monster Gelatinous Cube outlasted ALL monsters!

I like the Gelatinous Monster a lot, and will conitnue to use it!

As you can see, I have other battles below!


Battles No. 2 and No.3 illustrates the flexibility in placement of the Gelatinous Cube anywhere in the battle line-up.

This Monster can be accomodated in any medium to high Mana battles and various battle Rule/Rulesets. I personally have not tried using the Gelatinous Cube in low Mana battles, where every bit of attack from my Monster line-up is critical.

Battle No.3 Weak Magic/Rise of Commons, Mana 34 Link to the above battle

I am a visual learner and understand better about how the cards behave and perform in battles by watching all my battles from start to finish. I hope that you enjoyed at least one of battles above and that you likewise learned something from it as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!

In case you are interested, here are the other Splinterland Battles I previously shared.


In your comments below, please feel free let me know if you have any other suggested card positioning or drop me a tip or two that could help me and others play the game better.

Whoa. That first battle!
I totally thought you were a goner!
I'm finding that The Cube (when supported) can be placed just about anywhere. But yes, in lower mana battles I just can't do it. I'm much too focused on firepower. 😎

Whenever I go to battle, I somehow always no think of you, and wonder where you are in Splinterlands, hehehe! It is awesome to realize how large the Splinterland Community is, and how willingly many share their battles and rewards! It is so amazing that you have such passion and dedication in promoting this game by hosting this challenge. Kudos to you @carrieallen. I appreciate you very much!
And BTW, I received this from you, and I am very grateful:

Awe! Thank you so much!
I always wonder why I don't see you on the battlefield too! We have similarly leveled cards, so it's only a matter of time... untill you beat me. 🤣 I also play in my monsterspirit account (is baby levels as I ONLY put time into it, not money- still super fun!).

You're welcome! Your Sorceress post (and all your posts) are excellent. I'm happy to be able to give back to the community. 😍

Hugs! I'm so glad you're here. As the Golden Girls would say, "Thank you for being a friend." 🥰

That third battle is insane.

There's a new unwritten rule that you have to employ more than 6 damage to win against that damn cube.

How annoying for the other person!

One of my favourite cards. Especially useful in earthquake battles I've found.

Oh really... I am still trying to learn about this game. Huh... 6 damage to down the cube... I will be thinking of that. I do know that in more than one of the battles, this common monster CUbe beat the legendary LORD ARIANTHUS! I love it!!! When I am good enough and in the same league as you, perhaps we will see each other in the battlefield, @revisesociolagy!
Have a terrific day, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

I Love when You do These Steemmonster Posts Ms. Saver and Yes this Especially Made Me "JELLY" !! It is so Cool to see just One Monster left on the Battlefield, Take Out the entire Other Team..............@silversaver888

Good morning, @stokjockey! It is not really easy for me to do these kinds of posts, but I do it anyway. Isn't Battle No.1 fantastic!! I actually [skip to the end] when the Cube was the only one left of my team. ANd then it lashed me as the winner! I was like: WHAT? How did that happen?
So I replayed the battle to watch the entire thing... and WOW, 16 rounds of beating, and each one of my opponent's card died of fatigue, hahaha! It was such a cool battle to watch! I was jelly myself!!!
Have a terrific day, my friend @stokjockey, and take care 🥰🌺🤙
