I hope you all enjoying Splinterlands!

This is your splinter fellow warrior mango-juice with another Splinterlands Social challenge post!!

Hello my friends!

Since the last week, I am experiencing some changes in my life routine as I am jumping into this wild wild crypto world deep. Apart from playing splinterlands, I also started playing Axie infinity recently and after being unable to run the game properly for 4 days as of their server issues, I really felt dumb on my investment, but it is working fine now for last 3 days and I have started playing the game. From my personal experience, playing splinterlands is far more smooth with almost no lag or network disconnect problems which gives us a quality time when gaming.

Recently, Splinterlands has officially launched the card rental system and many people have already started earning pretty good passive income by renting there card out. Remember that 'make money while sleeping' quote? Splinterlands is making it real guys, a true #play2earn project indeed. Now, i don't have any card idle to be rented out as I play myself Splinterlands daily, but in future I will definitely buy cheap cards from market and will start renting them for sure.

On another note, brawl 2.0 is coming soon and already being tested by several maverick players. Finally, we will get a place to spend our Brawl Rewards! @cryptomaster also shared a glimpse of the upcoming brawl store through his post Splinterlands Guild Store - a place to spend your Brawl Rewards! Be sure to check his post out by clicking here :)

Now let us move towards my weekly splinterlands battle post. Today I thought to share a battle with the newcomer of the water territory, Mr. Lobstradamus!

Before I even start calling him in wrong ascent, let me just call him Mr. Lobster to make things easier heh! This new monster used to roam around into the deep sea bed but recently he got provoked to join the splinter wars.

This water card is specially being made to become a good defense against all types of attacks. For magic attacks, it has magic reflect ability to answer them back, for melee and range, it has shield ability that will reduce the damage and thorns ability that will reduce melee enemies health each time they attack.

Before moving on, let us see what is being written in the book of Splinterlore for him.

Beneath the waves north of ΛZMΛRÉ’s Dark Water, there is a massive reef that hangs over the edge of the abyss. The reef is called Vedric’s Lean, named for the way it seems to be poised for evermore on the edge of a destructive fall. The Lean is home to multitudes of creatures; some are hunters and others are hunted. Within the reef there are many caves, some of which contain incredibly large open spaces. It is in one of these caves that Lobstradamus, great champion of the Nephromagus, founded his underwater school, the Lobstermage Academy. With a curriculum full of divination and prescience education, the Academy is the most prestigious of the underwater schools, and it will undoubtedly play a large part in the looming chaos wars that Lobstradamus can sense somewhere beyond the Outer Ocean.

How did the lone Splinterlands survivor of the Nephromagus find himself the administrator of a school of magic? Years ago there was a great moment of peril that surrounded the Water Splinter, and none of its inhabitants knew how close they came to extinction. At that time the Nephromagus were a proud and prolific race of giant lobsters who made their homes in the midshallows and among the reefs all around ΛZMΛRÉ. They were skilled in many magical disciplines, but foremost among those were their talents for predicting future events. The champion Lobstradamus was the greatest predictor among them. It is through his magic that the Nephromagus knew what was coming, and they were the Splinterlands’ only hope against an unseen onslaught that would consume the entire world.

The enemy was a collective deep water force of doom known as leechwash. The massive cloud of dire leeches thought and moved as one, creeping through the Outer Ocean. When it found land, leechwash would approach from all sides and emerge from the water to quickly engulf and absorb every drop of life energy from entire continents. While in deep meditation one day in his ancestors’ temple of stone, Lobstradamus saw them coming and in a moment outside of time, he knew what had to be done.

In a deep prescient trance, Lobstradamus reached out with his powerful mind to every coral polyp in the land. After making a connection with these creatures that comprised the very ground on which the Nephromagus lived, he expressed to the coral consciousness the coming danger and implored their help. Without hesitation, the coral began to move as a massive unit, uprooting itself from the ocean floor and breaking into eight equal pieces.

The beautiful world of the Nephromagus was torn apart that day and the geography of ΛZMΛRÉ was changed forever, but the magic of Lobstradamus had worked. He alone was left behind as the coral homes of his people floated off into the wild Outer Ocean in eight large pieces. The attacking leechwash, having never seen moving reefs before, did not know which piece of broken reef to engulf. It divided its force, and eight smaller leech clouds followed eight sailing masses of coral into the outers, leaving the Splinterlands in safety.

Lobstradamus was alone but victorious. His world was safe, but he had made his people into castaways and would never see them again. He emerged from the ancestral temple beneath ΛZMΛRÉ to the Inner Sea and found a reef that reminded him of his lost home. In the years that followed, Lobstradamus built and opened a school of divination in Vedric’s Lean, training the most gifted Splinterlands minds to see what was coming before tragedy strikes. Now as he approaches the age of 100, Lobstradamus hopes that he has done enough in six decades as headmaster to prepare the diviners of the Splinterlands for the fight of their lives.

Ruleset Of Battle

image.png

image.png

  • Mana count This match holds a small 22 mana cap!

  • Summoners This battle supports Fire, Water, Earth, Life summoners.

  • Ruleset So, It's double ruleset as below...
  1. Silenced Summoners:
    Summoners do not give any buffs or debuffs or grant/use any ablities.

  2. Keep Your Distance:
    Monsters with Melee attack may not be used in battles.

Well, this time I got a small 22 mana melee only match and I think its a sweet ruleset to apply my Lobster. I am guessing my opponent will either of earth or life summoner with melee attack buffs but this time I am thinking to go for the water summoner VERA SALACIA. Because it's a silence summoner's rule-set match, this rule set is not favoring any summoners so if you have a 2 mana epic summoner, better use it here. I am going to use the lobster in reach position so that it will help me defend my backline monsters before going down.

Let us now take a leap of faith straight into the gameplay.

Well, it was an unpredictable mana match with just 22 mana in hand and friends, the match was full of no attack, ranged and magic monsters as the ruleset was keep your distance. My opponent used a maxx level life summoner Mother Khala against me! My opponent was having some maxx level life and neutral cards and his line up was just great! Let's look down to the match!

First, let us follow the opponent's line-up...

  • My opponent @FITZ1567 used life untamed Mother khala against me.
  • At the front position, he used the Hero of Beyond 6. I don't know why he used a range card at front cause it will be unusable.
  • At the second position, he puts the Light Elemental lvl 6.
  • At the third he used Herbalist lev 10.
  • At the fourth position, he puts Truthspeaker level 8.
  • At the fifth position, he puts Thunderbird level 6.

As you can watch from the beginning of battle, the opponent's line up was packed up with small and medium monsters. while at the front, the Hero of beyond was defending the front-line to help his troops and attack as well with his 3 range attack but still I don't know why he do this, the Light element was helping by attacking. The Herbalist lvl 10 with Truthspeaker do their possible attack to look my small mana monsters while the miner was about to attack my chicken.

Really,the true hero of this battle is the LOBSTRADAMUS orc The who really helped and also defense against opponent monsters. With his presents my other monster card can did their job freely. Beside that Mermaid Healer Also Heal my troops to engage them more.

My opponent @FITZ1567 really played great! I face him often on the battlefield and him line ups are great as always! If you are reading this, please give him a shout out. I hope you have enjoyed reading my post. Please let me know your feelings by leaving a comment below.
