Let's get in the game!

The Rule Set for the battle featured below was Super Sneak/Lost Legendaries, Mana-35.

I chose the Earth Splinter using Daria Dragonscale as Summoner.

My strategy included:

  • Putting three strong Monster cards (i.e., more lives and armor, and higher speed) in the first, second, and third positions to withstand attacks from both the opponent's tank and other Monsters.
  • Choosing Monster cards with ABILITIES to attack from the back positions. Monsters with Melee attack only from the first position unless they have special abilities, such as SNEAK or REACH, and do so from the back positions. This may also allow time for back cards to utilize their abilities and damage or possibly eliminate the opponent's Monsters. When Monsters in support positions reach the first position and they will not be able to use their abilities on Monsters other than the one "tank" Monster in first position.
  • The higher Mana of this battle was the primary reason for me to utilize GOBLIN MECH in this battle. I chose GOBLIN MECH for the first position for several reasons. This Monster has the advantage of having a high 8 of health/life plus he comes with 5 shields. He also has a high number of 4 Melee attacks with a speed of 3! The GOBLIN MECH can be an ideal tank, especially if there is enough Mana to use in the battle.

Here are the Monsters Line Up in this battle:

Enemy Summoner: Lyanna Natura (Earth Splinter) @silversaver888's Summoner: Daria Dragonscale (Earth Splinter)
Gold Enchanted Defender L5 GOBLIN MECH L5
Gold Wood Nymph L5 Gold Flesh Golem L4
Gold Creeping Ooze L5 Manticore L3
Gold Rusty Android L5 Wood Nymph L5
Gold Highland Archer L5 Goblin Sorcerer L3
Gold Grumpy Dwarf L5 Minotaur Warrior

Okay, so here we go!!! WATCH ME BATTLE!

Please click on the thumbnail (photo)below, and then click arrow to watch this minute-long video!

I think that GOBLIN MECH in the first position worked very well!

I have used the GOBLIN MECH in the last position in a previous battle, and he was perfect! I wanted to show that battle as a second video for this article, but I can't seem to locate the battle in my file.

I also have used GOBLIN MECH in the second position while using a lower health Monster (such as the Furious Chicken in the first postion), or in the case really high 99 Mana battles, the GOBLIN MECH in a second position to Prismatic Energy.

I, personally, only start considering using GOBLIN MECH when the Mana requirement is over 22 Mana. Perhaps when I have a few more higher level cards with abilities, then I will be comfortable using the Goblin Mech in low Mana battles.

I know @spinvest is investing in Splinterland packs, but I know very little...actually nothing LOL!🙃
Lead the way @silversaver888, I need to figure this out....🤗

I can understand why @spinvest will want to get in the packs. The cards appreciate so very quickly because of the limited quantities produced. And as one gets into the game, there is always a necessity to level up your cards by adding to them. When the packs are all sold out, you can't get them anywhere except in the secondary market. It took me more than a year to get into the game.
I know several in SSG who are in the game, and several who invest in the cards.
Enjoy the remaining days of 2019, @silvertop, and take care 🥰🌺🤙 !tip

You as well silversaver888 !!😊
I think @silverstackeruk is a smart guy, and what he is doing with @spinvest is a way to spread out investments.
Now there’s @spinvest-leo and @spinvest-neo ...👍😊🤗

Here is something my kids got into...MECHWARRIOR! Or Battletech. Originally a game played like Dungeons and Dragons with giant robot warfare all over the galaxy. Lots of computer game versions, huge novel series, and even as a Saturday morning kids show.
L to R; 100 ton Kodiak Assault mech, 75 ton Timber Wolf, and 70 ton Summoner.
The games we play. With love Sis 🌺🤗💝😉🌻

Are you sure those aren't yours, sis @kerrislravenhill? Well, I suppose they are technically yours since you funded the boys to be able to get those. The Kodiak Assault Mech looks very much like the Goblin Mech monster that I used in this battle. He was strong in this battle and just stood his ground!
Let me know if you are available to play the game, sis. Enjoy the remaining days of 2019! Take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋! !tip

This was before Stacking, I originally got into the Battletech novels of a legendary Wolf Clan mechwarrior, The Black Widow, Natasha Kerensky and her career with a mercenary force, Wolf's Dragoons. Great action but short on the romance. 😄🛠
The figures are worth considerably more than when I got them for my kids. 🤖

Great video editing! I could easily follow along with why you chose your team... and in so little time!

It seemed the other guy was slightly more leveled than you (across the board), but that Goblin Mech and the rest of your lineup DESTROYED.

Great job! 100% for you!
