I have read some posts about Siralim that talk about team compositions with certain “front line” and “back line” monsters. I am not sure if these comments are literal descriptions of where to put certain monsters, or if they are just figurative descriptions of the role a monster plays in the team.
My understanding (which may be flawed) is that monster positioning only matters when specific abilities make it matter. That is, effects like Thrust and Splash care about positioning, but otherwise it doesn’t matter if my Tank is in the “front” of my team or the “back”.
Is this correct? Or is there a hidden defensive (or offensive) benefit to having creatures near the front of my team?
P.S. Effects and abilities that care about positioning are a lot of fun. I am very pleased that a significant number of creatures/effects/abilities/spells care about adjacency and other positioning factors!
