|THEME CARD INFORMATION:🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜|
|MANA COST||4️⃣ - POINT|
|3 - MELEE POINTS|
|2 - SPEED POINTS|
|3 - DEFENCE POINTS|
|5 - HEALTH POINTS|
This card costs 4-mana to use in battle, as a result, it will be an excellent card for both low & medium mana ruleset matches. Let us now delve deep into this monsters to discover what makes them so unique.
I am using a level 10 regular foil and monsters together have a 3-melee, 2-speed, 3-defence and 5-health.
Truth is, This card when compared to other cards, is a pretty decent card worth having on deck. The 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 has awesome abilities;
SCAVENGER ability- which allows it gain a max health each time any monster diesand then the
SHIELD ability - which reduces damage from melee and range attacks.This monster card can cause great damage once engaged with a good backup team and placed in a favourable position (usually the first or second line).
level 4 increases the melee attack to 2 with 2-speed, 1-shield, and 4-health. Though the shield is reduced by one at this level, the increase in melee attack compensates for this and also makes this monster a good attacker.
At level 6, it gains another scavenger ability, increasing its overall value. When any monster dies, monsters with the scavenger ability gain one maximum health. As monsters are killed on both sides, this monster will gain one health point each time, transforming itself into an even stronger defense.
At Max level 10 It becomes extremely dangerous and really useful when it's 4-mana cost is considered. At this Levels, 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 attacks can be increased further with summoners like PLADO EMBERSTORM as we shall soon see why.

⚔️ THE BATTLE ⚔️
|STANDARD||MODIFICATIONS TO THE RULES AND MECHANICS|
|AVAILABLE ELEMENT||only Fire🔥, Earth🍃, Life🌬, Death💀 and Dragon🐉 elements allowed|
This was a low mana cap battle with Aim True and No neutral Monsters allowed in battle rule set.
⚔️ TEAM LINE-UP ⚔️
|+1 MELEE, |
The daring PLADO EMBERSTORM who gives all his team melee attack monsters +1 melee, and all team monsters +1 speed. He then goes on to take away -1 health of all enemy monsters. 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 is a melee attack monster who will do very well with the extra melee & speed boost.
|Front-line||SCAVENGER, SHEILD||⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️||COMMON||3-MELEE, 2-SPEED, 3-DEFENSE, 5-HEALTH|
In front line comes the formidable theme card 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜. The front position suits this monsters well, as they have decent defense and health to act as both resistance and tank unit. A ten-star monsters who fully deserves their moniker. They can shield against melee and range attack monsters, while scavenging the health of any monster that dies.
|second-line||REPAIR, SWITFNESS||⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️||COMMON||1-MELEE, 5-SPEED, 3-HEALTH|
Next comes the FLAME MONKEY, a 1 mana point monster that's a perfect peer with 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 thanks to it's repair ability which will restore armor to the theme card, cause it will surely take the most hit being front-line. Also this fire Monkey, gives the swiftness ability to all team monsters which is excellent. It has been employed solely for it's awesome ability and low cost.
|third-line||CLEANSE, SLOW, HEADWINDS||⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️||COMMON||5-HEALTH, 6-SPEED|
Then comes SCAVO CHEMIST up in last position. It is a unique mole breed, a highly intelligent specie capable of research and discovery. It only costs 2 mana point to use on the battle, and it has no attacking ability but some special abilities. with it's cleanse ability, it will be able to take away any negative buff placed on 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 who is in first position. It then aids to slow down all enemy monsters as well as reduce their range attacks using his headwinds ability.
As we can see, I came up with a team-lineup that I would love to call THE THREE MUSKETEERS. A perfect peering, Without further ado, let us now enter the battleground.
- The Enemy also came at me with the Fire element, TARSA as Summoner. CERBERUS in first position, SCORCH FIEND in second, KOBOLD MINER in third, and GOBLIN FIREBALLER in last position. Tbh I was startled, Cerberus, kobold and goblin are difficult monsters, I sorta thinking if I put up the right combination for my team. Let's see what happened.
Enemy-TARSA boosted all her enemy team with +1 health and +1 melee as expected.
Summoner PLADO EMBERSTORM gave all team monster +1 melee and +1 speed boost, while -1 health to all enemy monsters as expected.
FLAME MONKEY gives all team Monsters the Swift ability.
SCAVO CHEMIST slows down and reduces all range attack of enemy monsters. Enemy-SCORCH FIEND in turn demoralizes the armor of all my team monsters.
Round 1 starts with SCAVO CHEMIST cleansing all negative buffs on 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 who is in front line.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 then launches first attack on enemy-CERBERUS affecting it's health - 1, but he quickly heals himself.
Round 1 ends with attack on 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 to weaken his health but a few nothing but misses.
- Round 2 starts with FLAME MONKEY repairing back 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 defense +3.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 then launches attack again on enemy-CERBERUS affecting it's health -2, but he quickly heals himself.
Round 2 ends with enemy-KOBOLD MINER attacking and killing SCAVO CHEMIST. 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 scavenges health +1.
- Round 3 starts again with FLAME MONKEY repairing back 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 defense +3.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 launches attack on enemy-CERBERUS affecting it's health -2, but he quickly heals himself.
enemy-KOBOLD MINER attacks and kills FLAME MONKEY. 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 scavenges health +1.
Missed attack on 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 by enemy-GOBLIN FIREBALLER*, but enemy-CERBERUS get's him and takes away his defense -3😨.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 then quickly launches a deadly attack on enemy-CERBERUS before he can heal himself and kills it😃.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 being the last standing monster and enemy missing their chance to attack him, goes on to attack and kill enemy-SCORCH FIEND and scavenges health +1.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 again attacks and kill enemy-KOBOLD BRUISER and scavenges health +1.
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 again attacks and kills enemy's last standing monster enemy-GOBLIN FIREBALLER and scavenges health +1.
- 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 lets out a roar FLAWLESS VICTORY!!!
✅A SECOND BATTLE IN WHICH I ENGAGED 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 AND WON BUT HE DIED BEFORE END OF BATTLE👇
This was a 38 mana cap battle. 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 was in a first position but became the sacrificial unit. Took a lot of hits, I am pleased these monster card were tough enough to last longer. Huge chance this card would've lasted to the end of battle if it was in the 3rd position.
DO I LIKE 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜?
I Think I do like this card 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜, because of it's very low mana cost. When placed in favourable position or backed by supporting monsters such as in both battles, it is able to cause damage.
To be fair, I definitely am glad to have experienced max potential, and would make use of in fire units battles going forward. It has pretty awesome Speed and health, that's already a slam dunk. This only demonstrates that if you play the fire splinter and at low-medium mana cap, then this is a card to have on deck.
In summary the battles were exciting to watch and I will keep seeking more ways to own max level, and engage 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜.
DID MY STRATEGIES WORK AND WHAT LESSONS DRAWN FROM IT?
Yes, my strategy worked very well. It was a good lineup and strategy for this battle⚔️
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 as a best bet front liner as seen in first battle, and if you add monsters with interesting abilities as support, then it will be more difficult to target and kill it.
When using here on deck, always pick summoners that enhance or support it's attack type, like in the case of PLADO EMBERSTORM, TARSA is also is good summoner to use with 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜. Victory is granted at 85% the time with this in place.
When using the 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜, place together with supporting monsters like FLAME MONKEY for repairs and SCAVO CHEMIST for cleansing.
I would recommend this Lineup 💯 for low-to-mid mana cap battles. for higher, best peer with heavy tank monsters like GRUM FLAMEBLADE and LAVA LANUCHER. I welcome your opinion, objections and recommendations to further make good use of her in comment😊
🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 is no doubt a decent card, a great example of low or mid defense, as well as a good pick in the Lower Leagues. This challenge has surely exposed it's usefulness in battle.
😊That will be all about my weekly battle with 🐜ANTOID PLATOON🐜 as the themed card.
