Before the chaos gate opened, the towering city of Darkholde was peaceful and quiet. Situated in the cold, Blackworth mountain range, it was presided over by a long-standing noble family and governed by Baron Kutziq Neculai. If the citizens knew the truth about their governor, then maybe they wouldn’t have been so loyal, but the Baron’s tastes were sated with great restraint and he honestly did care for them, taking only what he must and never more than he had to, for Kutziq was a vampire, a race as ancient as the stones they’d used to build the city. He was a man who loved his people in many ways, including their unique flavor. The soul strangler is a creature of nobility, good stock, and incredible wealth. They live in lavish opulence, wearing the finest attire and moving in the most sophisticated of circles, often engaging with the high born from other cities and enjoying intimate gatherings that last for days. However, when this vampire chooses to hunt, they take on a whole new guise, almost shifting their form to become more accomplished for the chase. Pointed ears extend refining their hearing and their eyes change color affording the ability to see in the dark – their preferred time to hunt. Long fangs grow from their mouth and vicious talons sprout from their fingers. But what you can’t see in either form is the power they hold within their mind, an ability to attack at a spiritual level when they eventually find their adversary, squeezing the very life from them; a ranged attack that if not avoided, will have devastating consequences.
Soul Strangler’s stats:
A few friends and family who also battle in the Splinterlands have suggested I choose the Soul Strangler when I was choosing my cards, but I’ve only used him a few times. One thing I’d like to see added to the stats page is personal stats. How many times have you used this card? What was the win rate? Maybe there’s a third-party website that does do that. If so, please share in the comments.
The Soul Strangler is a pretty good card for only 3 mana. Since I don’t have any of my summoners maxed out yet I’ll wait to max this guy out because he only gains the poison ability at level 8. I only had him at level one, but after looking at these stats I think I’ll at least level him up to level 3 where he’ll cause 3 points of damage.
This was a battle with only 13 mana and melee cards not allowed so I put my Haunted Spirit out front to take a few hits so my Venari Bonesmith and Soul Strangler could finish them off. It was also a battle where ranged attack cards could fire from the front so my Soul Strangler could still attack if it ended up being the last card, but it didn’t come to that. I don’t know why my opponent put their healer out front. That’s never a good idea.
Luckily, my opponent didn’t choose any sneak attack cards so my Soul Strangler was safe to attack from the rear.
In the end, my opponent took the bait while my Venari Bonesmith and Soul Strangler finished them off. The only card I lost was the Haunted Spirit.
Thanks for reading about my Soul Strangler battle today. Have a good one and good luck out there in the Splinterlands!
