Splinterlands Small Daily Battle Tips! – #02 – Magic Sneak + Opportunity

in Splinterlands3 months ago (edited)
Hello friends, lovers of the best blockchain game. Today I bring you another team formation tip for Splinterlands battles that has been very efficient for me and has given me countless victories.

The idea is to use a card with Magic Sneak Attack that will be complemented by an Opportunity Attack. The goal is to make these two cards work together.


Sneak: Targets the last Monster on the enemy Team instead of the first Monster.

Opportunity: Monsters with the Opportunity ability may attack from any position and will target the enemy Monster with the lowest health.

It is a great strategy for battles with little mana using the Earth splint, and its standard configuration is Goblin Sorcerer + Screeching Vulture.

Both have good speed: 5 points, and because it the magical Goblin attack first, reducing the life of the card in the last enemy position. This makes Vulture almost always aim and attack this card, creating a double Sneak.

Watch the battle, and this will become clear:


Battle: @marianaemilia vs @monstermother



This could work with another Sneak Melee Attack card or Opportunity, but Vulture still has Flying and Scavenger for only 3 mana! While the neutral Parasitic Growth, for example, is slower and uses more mana.


In the Water splint, the same combination with the Coral Wraith + Feasting Seaweed pair is possible, but both spend more mana and are slower, which is still a good option in the Reverse Speed ruleset.

Vulture became a little less effective after the advent of summoner Millor Crowley, as he can suffer from Thorns scratches.

Therefore, whenever possible, we should add the Khmer Princess card to provide Triage and recover your life.


As the Vulture owns Scavenger, he can still survive and be decisive in these adverse conditions.

Scavenger: Gains 1 max health each time any monster dies.

Let's go now for another example. In this battle, we have a plus that makes the strategy even more efficient: Shin Lo!



Battle: @dosh vs @shoemanchu


Ok, I know that this card is rare and extremely expensive, but the point here is can observe with greater clarity the functionality and efficiency of this strategy.

See below all the cards that have these abilities, and if you prefer, you can filter for the specific League in which you intend to play, using this site: SplinterStats (@kiokizz) Card Filter

Nice. I should try the magic sneak. I just use the vulture.

I wrote a similar post just specific to vulture. Check if you like it.

Yes, @blog-beginner, I had seen your post the day before and it gave me inspiration to write this! Thank you, congratulations for the great post, be sure to publish more content always.

I love this combo of abilities!
To be honest I always use a reacher and a sneaker when possible.
Love the pic of the vulture carrying the goblin! 🤣

@carrieallen, Thanks! Yes, Reach is great! Unfortunately the Minotaur King with reach ability of the Earth splint is hardly used by me anymore, with the new very useful Untamed cards with very few mana required, like Khmer and Failed Summoner, it is difficult to choose him.

nice. wow that's really cool battles with sneak. Yep my favourite attacks hehe :P

Thank you, @xawi! I'm glad you liked it since you play this kind of strategy with greatness.

yes whenever i see you as my opponent i feel like o no

I love my Shin-Lo. Great call with the Triage to heal the Opportunity monsters against Thorns.

Nice! @monster-curator! Thanks! Glad you like! I really wanted to use Shin Lo together with Goblin Sorcerer and on an impulse I spent a lot of money to buy this.

I got my Shin-Lo back on the first Kickstarter campaign and immediately bought several BCX to level mine to 3.
