Investing In My Modern Earth Deck

splinterlandsnew.png

As my journey continues with becoming a 'player' in the #Splinterlands arena, I did something today...That I haven't done...Pretty much ever!

In the past, like I mentioned last week...

I just bought cards because they were....Gold foil legendaries!

My thought process was, there are only a few copies of these and I want to own one. Never for a second, considering the actual use case for the cards, my deck building in the past was...Suspect at best.

Wanna see what I mean?

When I got started buying these cards, I didn't even know what a Summoner was, never mind how I needed to level cards up. So here's Mylor, at Level 4 and about 11 copies away from Level 5. Just brilliance on my part...

So recently because of the daily focus quests, I've been building a few cards to go along with the quests I'm on and today was Earth!

Last week I got my Obsidian leveled up to 6, but today I decided it was time to work on some cards I knew I would need for my quests in Earth going forward. Here's what I built today...

Nectar Queen - From Level 2 to Level 6

This was my largest investment today as it was a big jump from 2 to 6.

However I feel this was worth it for a few reasons. One, I love the 'Retaliate' ability but mostly because, this card has a much better speed and Flying, which will help me today on any 'Earthquake' rule sets I encounter.

Sporcerer - From Level 3 to Level 4

Obviously in modern, we are going to be playing with Obsidian a lot. And that means you will face Obsidian a lot. So to get Sporcerer to Level 4 is a no brainer. Helping me reduce magic attacks will go a long way in Earth focuses.

Regal Peryton - From Level 5 to Level 6

Not a huge jump for Regal but that extra Health should help out!

Plus, if you see a pattern yet, I've been focusing a lot on the magic monsters to go along with Obsidian.

Goblin Psychic - From Level 7 to 8

Another small move up but adding a Health point for Goblin is a win.

And this is sneakily one of my favorite cards in Earth. I love the triple Abilities of Tank Heal, Affliction and Silence!

Grund - From Level 3 to Level 4

This blew my mind for a few reasons...

One, I love this card. What a beast! Double strike AND Trample?

Look at this match I played where this Ability just CRUSHED my opponent!

=> Replay of Grund w/ Trample!

And here's the big reason....

A few months ago, one BCX of Grund was like...10 bucks! I got 10 copies of him tonight for around....10 bucks LOL

Mycelic Infantry - From Level 5 to Level 6

I have to be honest...I never really play with this card.

Not sure why, but when I saw I could get 5 damage for a few extra bucks...I thought why not!

Plus, this guy can help me in Slow rule sets as well.

All in all, this is my new approach to stacking @splinterlands assets.

Every week, I'll build my modern deck according to the focus I have, which helps me get a better feel for which cards will help my journey!

Hope you guys got value from this post!

my kids say grund is a beast and they want to max him out soo bad.

They don't even realize that maxed out will not help them because they are not in high enough league

!PIZZA

Good luck growing your deck.

Oh man, you make feel like going back to play again. Haven't played in a long time. Cannot set aside time at the moment for Splinterlands.

You're doing very well with your investment by the way Jon. Well done! I'm sure you'll make a lot of money in the future if you decide to sell, or even just rent.

Those are some nice pick-ups. I wouldn't do that for my own deck because my summoners tend to be my own bottle neck. Grund with double attack and trample would be sick.

I have to be honest...I never really play with this card.

Same here with Mycelic Infantry.. The only time that I get to play it properly is on Reverse Speed ruleset. Congratulations on the card purchases though!


Hope you don't mind a quick commercial 😄 In case you're not yet familiar with PeakMonsters marketplace, you may quickly filter for Modern cards when shopping by using the format filters (see image below). You may also get PKM token when buying in bulk (at least $10 per transaction) and by increasing your account tier through accumulation of your card purchases. Hope this helps! :)

Appreciated!

Yeah I flip between places to buy lol Sometimes I'm just lazy and end up using Splinterlands itself but I should really start using Peak more lol

Grund is so annoying to play against, if left unchecked it will just blow through an entire team!
It would be interesting to have a round-up at the end of the post with the total cost 😁
Good luck on your daily focus rewards

I saw the replay, absolute insanity. I don't even know how could your opponent stop that beast, probably only with a shield and thorns tank.

Do you want to play modern only? Because if you do, Untamed won't be in modern format next year.
