The time before Opportunity ability one of the most used abilities I kept in my battle formations was Sneak. The ability allows monsters position in any location in the formation to still be able to attack at every round. Saber Shark of the water splinter became a staple for sneaking up and making knock outs while Kobold Miner of the fire splinter a staple due to its low mana yet aggressive sneak up and knock out. I had much love for the Sneak ability and here is a result of a battle where I used Saber Shark. Enjoy!
The battle limited with 46 mana and rule sets were armor up and up close and personal. With the restriction of melee monsters in use only and there was additional defense the main choices would have been life and fire splinter. However the match limited water and earth splinters only. I decided to go with water since I had more melee monsters in Sea Monster and Kraken.

The Battle Results
The battle was long hard fought and fatigue was the final blow that took out my opponent's last monster in Nectar Queen. Their Rexxie was knocked out in several rounds just by my Shark. Goes to show how useful the sneak ability can be. If you are interested in watching the match here is a link..
