The fearsome woman now known as Obsidian grew up in the remote village of Stonebluff as the last remaining Earth mage. Each year, Earth elementalists went off to compete in the contest, leaving Obsidian to train the next generation of warriors. She wished to join the contest of champions, but the village elders advised her against it, saying she needed to stay behind and focus on training others to use Earth magic.
How are you fellow Splinterlanders doing today? Are you ready for Land? I’m not. I had enough DEC to stake the five cards I was going to put to work, but when card prices dropped, I feared it would be the last chance to MAX them out before Land jacked the prices up so I spent it all on summoners and cards. I figure I’ll just put one card to work for now and put all the earnings it makes into DEC so I can stake the next card and so on. Can I put my MAXed card to work without the full 10,000 DEC? Well, I guess we’re about to find out because Land is now in testing with the Mavs. What is a Mav anyway? How do you become a Mav?
My battle strategy today was the laziest one possible; a magic spam. If you are underpowered or not sure what to do then choosing all magic cards can work because magic will usually pass by your enemy’s shields. It was a battle where slow cards go first so of course I chose all slow cards and so did my enemy, but I committed to all magic cards except for the first one so that’s why I won. Sometimes you have to KISS or “keep it simple stupid” to win. What’s your favorite go-to Splinterlands battle crutch? I’m a dragon lover so when in doubt I’ll go with the purple splinter.
Obsidian is one of my favorite non-dragon summoners because she boosts the magic attack of all cards by one point. You can counter her with a magic nerfing summoner. There are a few cards that can nerf magic too, but if they die then the nerf dies with them. You can also choose cards that have magic shields and magic reflect to counter the mighty Obsidian. I think getting a bunch of free summoners as reward cards is killing the Chaos core summoner prices, but I am not complaining because I could care less about card prices. I just want to make it to the 💎Diamond💎 and 🏆Champion🏆 leagues. I thought once the bots got kicked out of the Modern League that things would get easier, but that doesn’t seem to be the case because I haven’t stepped foot in 💎Diamond💎 league for over a month now. Thanks for reading about my thoughtless lazy magic spamming battle today. Admit it. You’ve done this before many times too.
