Hi There!

This babe in yellow stockings or boots is underestimated by many. Very wrongly so. Like every Splinterlands monster, she needs a worthy mate. Well, or a trio of monsters that will reveal her abilities. Let's see how I manage to unlock her secrets in this post!

This post is written for SHARE YOUR BATTLE Weekly Challenge! VENARI KNIFER. The Challenge is held weekly, so if you'd like to participate, you can join at the link above. And to make sure you don't miss future Challenges, subscribe to Splinterlands community.

VENARI KNIFER

MANA COST6 POINT
ATTACKMELEE
ABILITIESTHORNS

VENARI KNIFER is a monster with a melee attack for 6 mana with Thorns ability, speed 4, attack 2 and health 7 at first level, it's perfect. If it weren't for mages, a lot of people will say. That's what I thought when I saw it. In a pinch she can be put in second position or behind, but I use her in a different way. Below you will see one of my options.

My Team

SplinterMana CostPositionReason
wizard_of_eastwood_lv43SummonerRemoves shields from enemy monsters to speed up victory.
venari_knifer_lv161stStrikes first and defends itself with spikes if the opponent's first position is a monster with a melee attack.
mycelic_slipspawn92ndDistracts all enemy monsters while Venari Knifer deals with the first row.
venari_scout_lv233rdThis little guy finishes off those who are left with 1 health for 3 mana.
goblin_psychic_lv564thTreats Venari Knifer while she is sharpening her knives.
mushroom_seer_lv155thMage with enemy magic reduction. Indispensable monster if there is a smell of mages in the air.
mitica_headhunter_lv186thA speed shooter who will take out anyone in 2 rounds who is not thicker than 8 health. If thicker, others will finish him off.
Total Mana:40I used up all my MANA and put the Mitica, just because of the Venari Knifer selection.

RULESETS

image

ARMORED UP - adds 2 shields to all monsters. Due to this, we can assume that the enemy will play mages. Therefore, it is important to either remove the shields, or also play mages and defend against mages. HOLY PROTECTION is a shield that completely ignores the first attack. In this regard, it is important not to scatter your attack to different positions. Otherwise you will inflict the first damage to the opponent only at the end of the round or at all in the second round, which should not be allowed.

Strategy for Battle

When an opponent is supposed to have shields, I often like to play a Wizard of Eastwood summoner to remove one problem at once and combine mages comfortably with ranged and melee monsters. Since shields were 100% assumed in this fight, I chose that strategy. Next, I was waiting on the enemy mages, so Mushroom Seer had to protect me from the first onslaught. If you look closely, all of my monsters are attacking the first position to take out the tank or whoever will be there right away. Also, MYCELIC SLIPSPAWN was to slightly divide the enemy's attack directions and take her off the VENARI KNIFER as much as possible. This bunch works great, especially if you lower your opponent's attack so that MYCELIC lasts as long as possible. Let's see how well my strategy worked.

Let's see how my round-by-round strategy worked out.

ROUND 1

Splinterlands Battle Round 1

The enemy did have mages. All except the Unicorn Mustang. Also, the opponent also divided my attacks, transferring them to his MYCELIC SLIPSPAWN. But since I removed my opponent's shields and lowered his magic, I was already ahead by 1 health MYCELIC in the first round.

ROUND 2

Splinterlands Battle Round 2

In the second round my Mitica immediately destroys my opponent's MYCELIC and my monsters switch to the Unicorn attack. I also lose MYCELIC, but at the very end of the round. I'm still ahead and my VENARI KNIFER has 7 health and my opponent's Unicorn has only 3.

ROUND 3

Splinterlands Battle Round 3

At the very beginning of the round, my Mitica takes out my opponent's Unicorn and we go to attack the next monster, REGAL PERYTON. My monsters are all in place and it smells like victory.

ROUND 4-5

Splinterlands Battle Round 4-5

In the fourth round, I systematically eliminate one monster after another and heal VENARI KNIFER, so all my monsters are in place. At the end of the round, my opponent has only the GOBLIN PSYCHIC. But he doesn't solve anything anymore, so in the fifth round I get my well-deserved victory!

Conclusion

Did my team play the way I planned?

Yes, my formation played exactly as I expected it to. Going back to the beginning, I knew by 99% that my opponent would play an Earth Splinter. I could tell from his last few battles, which gave me a chance to prepare for the battle properly.

Will I do something differently next time?

Yes. If you noticed, I did split my attack when I chose Venari Scout. Only it didn't attack my opponent's first position. I guess I'll have to try another monster for 3 mana next time. After digging through Earth Splinter, I couldn't find one for this battle. But I did find one in Neutral. It's a GRENADIER. I must try him next time!

That's all for now, hope this was as useful for you as it was for me!

Thanks for sharing! - @lenonmc21

Your format is good although it has some details, you have done a good job, although, as a recommendation, detail a little more your strategy and your way of thinking in the battle and put it in the post.
