WHEN YODIN ZAKU is the opponent: DRAGONS are my favorite! CHEAPER but very USEFUL!
Hello splinter boys and girls living in the Splinterverse, hope you all are enjoying the new reward mechanism in Splinterlands with the great opportunity of tons of loot chests everyday and hundreds of loot chests at the end of season!
This is my entry in Weekly Battle Challenge with the DRAGON MONSTERS which are my favorite in the game. I have already posted some blogs about the DRAGONS decks which can be helpful for you guys and you can check those in my previous blogs. This week I am going to talk about the amazing DRAGON monster DJINN CHWALA.This card is a member of the newly released CHAOS LEGION REWARD CARDS set. In my battle, I will reveal how the card is performing in such a match against one of the most powerful enemy in the Splinterlands: FIRE SUMMONER the YODIN ZAKU. This match was a defeating one for me but with the excellent performance of the my awesome monsters: the PELACOR MERCENERY and REGAL PERYTON, I won the match. And that's why I couldn't resist myself from sharing this amazing battle with you.
This DRAGON MONSTER is a fantastic card with the excellent ability of THORNES at level 1 and ENRAGE at level 4, I can say that it is one of the best EPIC cards among the REWARD SET!
This card is an excellent card with moderate mana which will cost you only 8 MANA with the amazing number of HEARTs and SHIELDs.
I have chosen this card because of the following reasons-
It has some excellent abilities like THORNES which is an amazing ability against the MELEE attacks and this card offers from the level 1.
Also the ENRAGE will offer increased ATTACKS and speed which will be devastating for the ENEMY TEAM!
This card is one of the cheapest card to enjoy these fascinating abilities.
In the any ruleset these abilities with 8 MANA cost in any match is amazing.
In this battle I have used the legendary CL Dragon summoner which is one of my favorite SUMMONER QUIX THE DEVIOUS which do excellent job by reducing one RANGE ATTACK and 1 speed of all the enemy monsters. The reduced 1 RANGE ATTACK is amzing agains the YODIN ZAKU which increases 1 RANGE ATTACKS!
Let's know about the the chosen cards first.

Let's dive into The Battle
My battle was a 29 MANA battle with NOXIOUS FUME and CLOSE RANGE rulesets.
And I have chosen my LEGENDARY DRAGON summoner QUIX THE DEVIOUS (level 3) as my summoner. I chose it because my other summoners are in lower level for low MANA matches. And as now I am playing in the GOLD LEAGUE, that's why I prefer this summoner in my team! Also my opponent was playing with the YTODIN ZAKU so my this DRAGON summoner is the best for the BATTEL!
My monster positions
As I expected the enemy team with the YODIN ZAKU and with FIRE team monsters with the RANGE ATTACKS and most importantly the BLAST ability which is devastating for any team, I chose the QUIX THE DEVIOUS as the summoner it offers decreasing the SPEEDS and the RANGE ATTACK. I also like this because of the max out version in my league so that I can use my higher levels monsters for the match!
I have chosen the DRAGON monster DJINN CHWALA as my primary TANK! as it is very cheap and it has a solid health with the significant number of SHIELDs with some excellent abilities of THORNES and ENRAGE so that the MELEE attackers will get 2 MELEE attacks after attacking it and it's stats will increase due to the ENRAGE ability. As MANA cost is important issue here because of only 29 MANA match and I need to be careful in spending the MANA without any solid reason and this DRAGON is amazing.
For my second monster lineup, I have chosen the great earth monster PELACOR MERCENARY. It is an awesome monster with the amazing ability of SELF HEALING and the FLYING ability with very high speed! It has an extra chance to dodge many extra attacks from the enemy team in the match.
My third monster is the super speedy REGAL PERYTON with its excellent ability of FLYING which will make this monster untouchable from MELEE and RANGE attacks!
My fourth monster is another 3 MANA monster UREAS with the outstanding ability of SNEAK and the POISON so it can attack the last enemy monster and poison it each round which will kill any monster. This card is amazing for low MANA battles!
My fifth monster is another 2 MANA monster FAILED SUMMONER with the good ability of MAGIC REFLECTION. Though it is not so useful here but I have used it to utlize the two extra MANA to save my other monsters from the BLAST ability of the YODIN ZAKU!
My last monster is another 0 MANA monster FURIOUS CHICKEN without any ability but it can absorb some sneak attacks of the enemy monsters!
When I saw the YODIN ZAKU summoner with the FIRE TEAM I though I am going to loose the battle as usual. But my DRAGONS have done excellent jobs and also the earth monster REGAL PERYTON did outstanding performance by dodging multiple attacks from the enemy monsters due to its superspeed with the flying ability. Also my dragon summoner decrease one RANGE attack of all the enemy monsters having RANGE attacks and the DJINN CHWALA absorbed a lot of attacks in the BATTLE!
My first tank was doing great job here because of it's THORNES AND ENRAGE. IT did excellent damage to the first two main TANK of the enemy team which is amazing! Though the CLOSE RANGE ruleset was trouble some for me but my team did outstanding job here!
And my another and one the best monster PELACOR MERCENARY was doing best with its self-healing ability by recovering health in every round by affecting by the blast and poison damages. It was devastating for my team as the BLAST ability was very troublesome in every battle.
Every time with ENEMY"S attack, the BLAST can damage my 3 monsters and each round my team got tremendous amount of damage with enemy's attacks which was very destructive.
Finally I win the match as the DJINN CHWALA and PELACOR MERCENARY with the REGAL PERYTON were amazing! Though it’s a uncertain winning match but my team did amazing.
Most importantly, now all the new players can afford this excellent card with the excellent ability of THORNES AND ENRAGE with the DRAGON MONSTER DJINN CHWALA with very cheap cost. And this card can be a great card for any league level in Splinterlands game!
