Top EARTH PRIMARY TANKS in various rulesets in Splinterlands: The cheapest and the Best utility

Hello, the beautiful people of Splinterverse. Hope you all are doing great and enjoying the game every day. In my recent Splinterlands post, I discussed the effective ways to collect more loot chests within a short time. If you miss that article you can go through this post How to increase the number of loot chests without spending a ton of hours on the screen? In this post, I have mentioned one strategy of playing like robots which can be very effective in some cases (You can find details in that post) but there are some underlying issues that I have noticed frequently which I want to address in this post. Besides, I have introduced some strategic ways to find the new cheaper cards, which can be very useful from many perspectives, such as winning with more DEC and R-shares. In recent weeks, I have discussed The strongest max SILVER LEAGUE EARTH DECK @180 bucks; the strongest max SILVER LEAGUE FIRE DECK @160 bucks, The strongest max SILVER LEAGUE WATER DECK @190 bucks, The strongest max SILVER LEAGUE MODERN LIFE DECK @133 bucks!, and The strongest max SILVER LEAGUE DEATH DECK @182 bucks!. I hope these posts have helped you to choose some best cards for building your deck to make it stronger in a cheaper way. These cheaper and alternating cards can be useful and amazing options for substituting many expensive cards with high renting values. And also for price appreciation in the future, these cards can be solid investments in this dumped market. Also, I have mentioned the card utility according to the MANA level of the match and the level that will be enough for building the deck. I hope those discussions were very helpful in improving your Splinterlands experience. If you have any suggestions or queries, you can ask me in the comment related to my post!

Today, I will find the best strategy to find the top Primary Tanks from EARTH team which will be based o the price and the utility and balancing them as the best option. I will try to avoid the most expensive Beta and Alpha cards and even some Untamed cards which are very expensive and which are also very expensive in upgrading to a higher level. The following concerns have been considered for selecting these Tanks that can be effectively used in most of the Battles in Splinterlands -

  • The utility is a major concern here

  • The single BCX price also matters as a single BCX card will make a negative impact on your rewards!

  • Upgrading to the respective league max is crucial in this consideration.

  • The future utility is also considered.

  • The cheap replacement or the same utility of various cards has been skipped.

  • The main consideration is taken according to the rule sets of the battle!

  • Only High/medium MANA and low MANA have been categorized in this list.

The most effective Primary Tanks from EARTH TEAM

As I am a Big FAN of the EARTH TEAM there are several options for the LOW MANA and Higher MANA TANKS that work well in many cases. And I think the water team is one of the best teams in the Silver and Gold leagues due to having a number of primary TANKs, so, it is difficult in many cases to choose the best one, here the strategy to choose the best one will be discussed.

Against Magic attackers
If you see the opponents were using the MAGIC attacks frequently in the previous battles then your TANK must be with Anti MAGIC one such as with the "VOID ABILITY". In this case, the REWARD legendary UNICORN MUSTANG is a great option for the battle for high and medium, and even in some low MANA battles.
The Single BCX price is around $6 which is little bit expensive for such a card and needs a relatively lower number of cards to level up. But the great speed an attack numbers with amazing health numbers is worth the price. And the another ability the Magic Reflection is amazing against the Magic attacks!

Also, this card is very effective for the following types of rulesets-

  • Low MANA for only 8 MANA cost

  • Against MELEE and RANGE attackers due to excellent speed

  • In "HEALED OUT" rulesets for a higher number of healths

  • In unprotected rule sets where no armor works

  • Monsters lose all abilities for having a lot of hearts and attacks

  • Any rulesets due to excellent abilities like VOID, and MAGIC REFLECTION!

Other alternative primary TANK without any attacks is the great option for ANTI-MAGIC CATEGORY is the common CARD "BAAKJIRA" which is an amazing card with some amazing abilities such as the MAGIC REFLECTION, STRENGHTHEN and the amazing ability of DEMORALIZE at higher level! This card is an amazing Anti-magic TANK for any low MANA matches for having only 6 MANA.

The SINGLE BCX price of the card is $2 and as a common card this price is high for any player to afford to level it up!

Also, it can be very effective for the following rulesets-

  • Slow Speed for only 1 speed

  • In "EQUALIZER" rulesets due to lower number of hearts!

  • In unprotected rule sets where no armor works

Cheap Alternate and best low MANA TANK for all attacks
The overall best low MANA primary TANK is the HILL GIANT with only 3 MANA with a lot of hearts! And the price is only $0.02 which is the best option for this category.

Also, Hill GIANT has good number of attacks and life to sustain against the MELEE and the RANGE attacks also besides the MAGIC attacks. Also theamazing ability of STUN is very helpful against the enemy's DEADLY primary TANK!

Against Melee and Range attackers
Against the MELEE and the RANGE attackers, the monsters with SHIELD ability or many ARMORS are the best options and the higher speed is also important to dodge as many attacks as possible. Also the monsters with the SELF HEALING is excellent performer in this category.

For HIGH or LOW MANA matches the best and the cheapest option if the "MYCELIC INFANTRY" which is a CL card with 8 MANA which is very suitable against the MELEE and the RANGE attacks due to having a lot of armors also!

This card is an amazing TANK for the following great abilities-


This card is also a good choice in the following rulesets also-

  • In REVERSE SPEED ruleset for 1 SPEED

  • Against the Thorns ability

  • In Earthquake rulesets

  • In the equalizer ruleset

  • Normal rulesets as a heavy heater

An amazing monster with the amazing ability of DOUBLE STRIKE the GRUND is an excellent monster as the primary TANK in many battles.
Also the single BCX price of $1.5 of this eppic card makes it an easy option to level up for better performance! It is strongly recommended Primary TANK!

The bestand the cheapest aginst MAGIC, MELEE and RANGE ATTACKS

For any MANA matches, against the MAGIC, MELEE or RANGE attacks, the "PELACOR MERCENARY" is the best option with the cheapest card, the single BCX is around $0.01 which needs a little amount of money to level up. So, I strongly recommend this amazing card if you are building up a great water deck.
This all rounder comes with the following amazing abilities also-


Also, this card can be very effective for the following rulesets-

  • Against the EARTH QUAKE

  • Normal rulesets!

  • Against MAGIC, MELEE and RANGE attackers

Expensive OPTIONS

For any attacks in any MANA matches but expensive option, the old ALPHA BETA common monster "FLESH GOLEM" is a great option for its SELF_HEALING and the VOID ability and good speed but the single BCX of this card is $1.2 which is a little bit high for a common card and it will cost a lot of money to level it up to your LEAGUE LEVEL. So, it is not strongly recommended to buy as the PELACOR MERCENARY is a better option in this case!

Another unrecommended TANK for any MANA matches the "MINOTAUR WARLORD" which is an excellent TANK with a lot of HEALTH and ABILITIES with only 8 MANA cost. Also the amazing ability such as the MAGIC REFLECTION, RANGE REFLECTION and the amazing aABILITY of BLAST with huge number of MELEE attacks make this LEGENDARY PROMO card into a true beast which is so useful in all battles.

But the single BCX price of this common card is around $19 which is an expensive option but it is very useful for a strongest WILD EARTH DECK and so it is not strongly recommended TANK for your EARTH TEAM if you are a new player like me.

There are some alternatives to these TANKS from the DRAGON and the NEUTRAL Teams which I will share in future posts. What is your best TANK from the FIRE team, let us know for the mutual knowledge gaining in the comment section.
