Battle Mage Secrets featuring a close battle!


Hello everyone, This is @cantfoldaces participating in the Weekly Battle Mage Secrets Challenge, in the best #play2earn game out there!! #Splinterlands!!

Welcome to another Battle Mage Challenge, now coming back with another close and interesting battle and hopefully you'll be enjoying reading through or watching the battle and obviously securing a very close win!


  • All units have the Fury ability.

  • Double Damage against a Taunt Monster

  • Think carefully before including a unit with Taunt


Looking at the Cards that have the Fury Ability, there isn't one that's actually dominating the Meta or being a Must-Pick Card, maybe this is the reason why the Taunt Meta is still dominating till now. (well not as much as the Lily + Grim Combo)

A couple of monsters I'm seeing often are the Runemancer Kye, actually used for its tankiness provided by its Health & Life Leech
And secondly Rune Crafter having decent damage at higher level in addition to the Snare Ability.

Without further ado let"s get starting


  • High Mana cap 41 Mana
  • Fire, Life, Death, Dragon Available
  • Ferocity Ruleset

With this I have decided to go as follow :


Ability: -1 Speed & -1 Ranged

The Dragon Summoner allow first the pick of a couple of elements namely Life being my element of choice and secondly the oppressing debuff on Speed and Ranged Damage that we could face in this game.

Tank Posiiton

Ability: Thorns

I fell in love with this monster when I first started playing this game in the Bronze League by being a Tanky, had punishing Enemies and can deal decent damage the higher its level goes (gets enrage + True Strike later on)
For this battle it shall be used as our frontliner.

2nd Position

Ability: Slow

A utility Monster that is used to further amplify the Quix nerf by additionally nerfing the enemy's speed by another -1
A 2 Magic Damage proves useful considering its high Speed!

3rd Position

Ability: Tank Heal

Another utility monster joins the field as it serve for a healer to our main Tank Djinn Chwaya that can be healed up to +3 health/turn

4th Position

Ability: Flying + Scattershot + Blast

A huge Mana Cost at first glance but it IS justified by the combination of these factors:

  • Huge Health + Armor pool + flying providing decent Tankiness
  • 3 Magic Damage
  • Scattershot + Blast leading to a higher probability of hitting the backline and inflicting damage to 3 Monsters per turn!

5th Posiiton

Ability: Double Strike + Sneak

Another decent Dragon Monster that deals decent damage thanks to its kit 2 Melee + Double Strike leading to a total of 4 Melee Damage to the backline!

Here's the Link to The Battle

Pre Round 1


A Solid Team I would be facing, Astral Entity gives enemies a 25% Dodge chance in addition to ressurect to a monster with Void Armor that would be harder to get through.

Round 1


  • Chaos Dragon scattershot was clutch as it dealt massive damage to the enemy sneak monster while damaging adjacent monsters.
  • Dhampir infiltrator landed both its attacks on the Riftwing.
  • Unfortunately, Djinn Chwala was to first to go down (after so much praise earlier x) ) because of the Barashkukor Massive Magic attack
  • Luckily Time Mage managed to evade their tank's attack

Round 2


  • Time Mage and Meriput combined efforts puts down the enemy Executioner, but got instantly revived by Astral Entity Ability!
  • Another shot from the Chaos Dragon leaving enemies with a sliver of health and yet to take down one of them!
  • Dhampir Infiltrator doing a splendid job by taking down the ever evasive Riftwing
  • Barash massive attack slays Time Mage lone health
  • Meriput still hanging on with a lone Health Point!

Round 3


  • Chaos Dragon hits right into Zyriel health and takes down Ahna-Chei with the Blast Damage!
  • Dhampir infiltrator landed only a single strike due to Astral Dodge
  • Pelacor Conjurer got defeated by the sneak attacker
  • Barashkukor on a TRIPLE kill slaying the Meriput
  • The battle still ON even being at 2 VS 4 !

Round 4


  • Chaos Dragon on the Tank posiiton fires a Magic Bolt and takes down Fenmour Haunt with the Blast Ability
  • A HUGE miss from the infiltrator when it matters most on the same Zyriel!
  • Brashkukor hit left Chaos Dragon with 3 Health!
  • RNG still by my side as both Zyriel & Executionner missed their shots! Long live the Flying Ability!

Round 5


  • Chaos Dragon finally defeated Barashkukor with the Blast Ability
  • RNG favors Zyriel as both Infiltrator strikes went missing!
  • Boom Chaos Dragon got slayn!
  • Dhampir infiltrator facing the ultimate challenge, recovers from the depth of hell and strikes both enemy monsters to strike an insane Victory for the Team!

After Battle Commentary

  • Kudos to the enemy team for playing a really solid battle as the outcome could vary with every single hit done or missed!
  • Chaos Dragon performance was insane, obviously hoping that these scattershot abilities landed some kills early on!
  • Dhampir infiltrator was a good pick too as it provides insane DPS compared to its low mana cost!
