The large, floating eyeball monster known as Cornealus has strange magical powers and can see anything for miles in any direction. No one knows from whence it came.
Have you seen this scary-looking eyeball in battle? I used to have a MAX copy, but I stupidly thought Splinterlands wasn’t going anywhere in the spring of 2021 and sold all my cards. I re-bought this card at level one during the peak for about $100 only to see it worth a third of its value today, but it still kicks ass at level one because it has a lot of life and self-heals by 4 points each round. If you can afford a MAX copy then you’ll have an almost indestructible wall for your enemy to pass because it will reflect magic and arrows as well as stick them with thorns causing 2 points of damage anytime a melee monster strikes.
This was an equalizer battle which means all monsters will have the same amount of health as the strongest card on either team and in this case, it was Cornealus with 12 health. It was also an archers-only battle so both my enemy and I chose archers that can fire while in the front position.
I always put Cornealus in the rear because most sneak attacks aren’t that strong so Cornealus will usually survive, but this was my wife playing and she put Cornealus as the second card which I told her was a mistake, but I was wrong because it worked as a great wall for a few rounds which made the difference and led to victory.
I like to use the fire team whenever the rules only allow for archers, but the death team will work too. What about you? What do you like to do when it’s only bows and arrows allowed?
