The Grumpy Dwarf takes its inspiration from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. In traditional RPGs, the dwarven race is small, generally 4 feet tall, has armor proficiencies, and increased strength. When comparing the splinterlands version, the Grumpy Dwarf has armor, a small amount of health, ok damage, and abilities that aid it in a support melee damage role. And that's how we need to view the Grumpy Dwarf; in low mana cost battles, rise of the commons, and little league ruleset battles, it may be a helpful addition to your lineup in support melee role.
It was a stroke of good fortune to select Bortus as a summoner, which negated the +1 magic damage that Alric Stormbringer would've gotten. In anticipation of this magic damage buff, my opposition played 3 magic monsters, which they would've gained +3 additional damage round. Nonetheless, this battle perfectly displayed a selected ruleset where the Grumpy Dwarf can be helpful. It sustained a few hits due to increased armor and health; thank you to buffs from Pirate Captain, Mermaid Healer, and Crustacean King. By surviving, it was able to support the Battle Orca with melee damage from position 2 thanks to the Reach ability. It's such a fantastic support ability. All in all, this was a great battle to portray the Grumpy Dwarf's usefulness.
Would I rush out today to purchase the Grumpy Dwarf? No, I'd rather keep that $30 for other more valuable purchases. Even when I consult my playing stats and the top 100 player usage stats -> it's a card that is hardly used. For a support card, its only valuable stat is its high armor to other Reach ability monsters, but I prefer monsters with Reach ability to do a little more damage and have a bit more health. Then again, and as I have mentioned above, the Grumpy Dwarf can be used in specific rulesets, and I hope the battle challenge I was able to demonstrate that.
