Splinterlands: Pelacore -vs- Giant

Many centuries ago, the Pelacor followed the prophet, Edalus, on what has become known as the ‘Exile.’ They followed him into the Mountains of Fire surrounding Mount Praetorous. For generations they lived alone in these mountains, hidden away. They were taught to worship the sun and moon gods, Solaki and Lunaki, deities dreamt into existence from the bones of Edalus’ dead parents and his zealous mind. The scriptures read that the two Gods were carried into the heavens upon pieces of consecrated land, torn from the World to raise them high so that their worshipers would always look up to them and forever be beneath their great heavenly power.


The Pelacor Deceiver is rightfully named because it deceives you into thinking it’s just a junk rewards card. That is until you get it combined at the top levels. Ten life, flying, backfiring, and retaliating are what the Pelacor Deceiver brings to the table at level ten when maxed. I was able to MAX this card simply by collecting my daily and seasonal rewards. I’m looking to MAX another one just in case my land gets surveyed and it is appropriate for a Death worker. If not, I’ll just put it up for rent. He will also be a great card to lend to any new guild members who lack it in the future.


The Hill Giant is another card I’m proud to have combined 400 copies of to have a MAX level card that has nine life and three melee attack power all for only 3 mana. This is one of the cards that can win during the Little League rule set where only 4 mana and fewer cards will be available for battle. The Hill Giant can serve both as a tank and a meat shield because it has a decent amount of life even if he is a bit slow.


Since it was a low mana battle where everyone loses their special abilities, I thought I could win by putting out my Hill Giant and two archers. My summoner and Hill Giant were at MAX level for this Diamond League battle so I was fairly confident I was going to defeat this weaker opponent.


By the second round, it could’ve gone either way. Just one miss could have changed the outcome of this battle.


I sadly didn’t get any misses and lost this battle, but I got reminded of what a great card the Pelacor Deceiver can be. Thanks for reading about my battle today. I used to get mad whenever I’d lose a battle, but now I’ll go back and watch it again and steal my enemy’s battle tactics or if I really get smashed and have an opening, I’ll send them an invite to my guild.
