Are you new to Splinterlands and searching for some advice, then you found the correct series! In this Beginner’s Guide Series, we are discussing things that new players of Splinterlands should know or try to learn. In this specific episode we will talk about the cards that are holding the most value at the moment. I want to present cards that will spike very heavily in my opinion once we will leave the bear market and enter another bull market once again. By the time this happens the current Chaos Legion cards that are very cheap will gained in value, not only because we will be in a bull market but also because the supply trough packs will no longer exist. With that being said, if this article motivated you to start playing this amazing game, then feel free to join the fun over the following link:
First things first, I think the pretty obvious choice are the Chaos Legion summoners. To be honest, for the past view days they already started to pick up the pace with the pricing which is making my strategy to purchase more of them very difficult. In general, they are not the biggest contributors to your Collection Power but they are the number one source for your potential to play higher level cards.
This is why these cards will be very important tin the future. Not only because they will determine how strong your cards actually can be but also because they are giving your monster pretty powerful buffs. At the moment Kelya is the most expensive one, because the Water Splinter is just a very powerful Splinter. Personally, I am aiming for Obsidian as I really enjoy playing Magic monsters as well as Tarsa because I think that the Fire Splinter will always be a solid source of good cards.
In general I think that these cards will be the single most important once that will spike in price later on. Therefore, it really makes sense to invest some money into summoners over the next view months. Furthermore, if you just starting out, it is always recommended to start up building your summoners first before leveling up any of your monsters.
Another card class that will probably raise in demand are airdrop cards. Not only is the supply already pretty much done, these cards are pretty good cards, especially the legendary summoners. But the regular legendary monsters will have a big role in the future. I think that they play a very heavy role in the higher leagues starting with Gold and are definitely cards worth investing in. I am sure that once new players will come in, they will want to play with these high tier cards and put the price tag on these cards through the roof.
I am a big fan of Uriel and Grum as they are pretty solid tanks and can be used in high mana battles preferably. But there is also merit to play card such as the Spirit Hoarder as this card can be a big puzzle piece in a Taunt strategy. Obviously the legendary summoners will be very heavily demanded in the future. As we can see right now, cards like Yodin or the Llama Mage are well over the 200 USD mark and were around 1k USD during the peak of the last bull market.
Grund & Forgotten One
Next up I need to talk some cards that the normal player would be wiling to buy at the moment if he is starting out new. Here we have two Epic cards and two Rare cards that I want to highlight. First up are Grund and the Forgotten One. Both cards are absolute beasts in their Splinter and I could not imagine a deck without them. Especially, if you want to go further up the division leather you need some resistant tanks that are dealing some great damage.
Well, Grund is the perfect example of a damage dealer! With its double strike ability this card is able to deal 6 damage each turn! This is something that players will quickly realize and the demand will be very high with this one. In regards to the Forgotten One, it is an absolute titan when it comes to negative effects. Because of its Immunity Ability, this card is pretty much indestructible. With 4 melee attack it is also not the weakest hitter which makes both of them very valuable assets in the future.
Cursed Windeku & Xenith Monk
Last but not least I want to talk about probably the most used Rare cards in the whole Chaos Legion expansion. Everyone who is playing the Death Splinter is most likely playing one of the most overpowered cards in the game: the Cursed Windeku. Not only does this card cost only 6 mana, it comes with 9 health and the Thorns Ability on the base level. On top of that it has 3 speed and 2 melee damage which is pretty strong for a card like of this caliber. New players will recognize its advantages and because the death Splinter was always a fan favorite, this card will gain popularity very quickly.
On the other hand we are having a 4 mana card that is able to heal itself every turn on level 2. With 6 health and 3 speed this card is a pretty good survival card that is especially valuable in low mana battles. On top of that it is a neutral card, so it can be played pretty much in any circumstance. The Xenith Monk is a card that I absolutely love and one of my priorities is to continue buying this card regularly in preparation for the next bull run.
