Let's Talk about Splinterlands - My Goal: Silver League Core Card Investments (Water Deck: (Splash 'em all dead and wet 🤣)
Here we are with another talk about @splinterlands, and today's topic would be my goal investments for reaching Silver League.
At some point, everyone sets their own target/goal on something, might it be savings, spending, investments, and accumulations.
Speaking of Target/Goal I would like to share mine for my silver Deck when the time comes, I will be looking at this post/list constantly to see where am I sitting. With these Decks, I believe I can already play competitively in Silver, might not be one of the top players or one of the greats, but I am pretty optimistic I could give a good fight with these cards, and they will give me very good results. Building this Deck will come right after I am done getting all my cards maxed out for Bronze and play competitively in the League.

I will still be focusing on main attributes/splinters that I feel will be the next meta of the game when they release the new format. Now, this is my "current" plan and can easily change depending on the changes in the game or how much the legendary summoners affect the new meta.
Water Deck (Splash 'em all dead and wet 🤣)
By the waters that crash upon our rocky shores… by the mysteries of the ocean deep… by the power of thunder and the chaos of lightning, we will never be ruled again!
- The Frost Giant
Water is by far the best splinter for me, it can easily counter Magic and Melee lineup if you play it right.
+ 1 Mana and + 1 Armor is the main ability of this summoner, at level 4 it has the ability to Summon Silver Level Cards, probably the most important card and the very first in my priority list.
The main ability of this card is Opportunity plus at level 5 it has 4 Melee Damage, 4 Speed, and 7 Health, definitely not a bad deal for a common card, with the opportunity this card can be a beast. This card can easily be your source of main damage.
This is a good card for a common, and for that price, this is a great secondary tank with 3 Melee Attack, 4 Speed and 9 Health, it is one of the best secondary tanks that can attack in the second position.
These two ability works great together, imagine having a cheap Magnor through this card with 3 Melee attack, 4 Speed, 6 Armor, and 8 Health, this is a legendary stats, with Enrage this can easily increase up to x1.5 (rounded up) and it works with well with summoner Kelya and can be an absolute beast as a tank against almost any melee unit if you play it right, this card can win you a lot of games, just give it the right support and this can be a go-to card, and is good in Stampede ruleset.
Double Strike is also one of the abilities that I like, and Axemaster was the perfect example of it and it fits the card perfectly, at level 3 it has 3 Range Damage, 4 Speed and 6 Health, like imagining the firepower this card has, having to attack twice it can dish out 6 Damage easily, with Kelya it will add 1 more speed and armor for sustainability.
These two abilities is a great combination against Magic-heavy lineups, it will give you defense against magic, while it also gives you chance to avoid magic attacks, Phase is a great ability and combining it with Void makes it super better if your opponent is running magic, you already know what to do
Baakjira can easily be one of the great tanks or secondary tanks in the game, three-ability legendaries are definitely forces to be reckoned with and so far Baakjira has the best support abilities among all Chaos Legion Legendaries with Slow, Void, and Strengthen you will have buffs and debuffs from a single card so it is definitely worth it.
One that can be a good supplement on your Melee water Deck, with Inspire, this is a good addition especially on rulesets that all melee can attack from any position like Super Sneak, Melee Mayhem, and Equal Opportunity. Did you know: If you can use the Inspire ability twice in one battle, your Melee attacks will be catastrophic for the enemy
|Serpent of Eld||4||25||$105||1000|
It is always good to have a backup tank, and Serpent of Eld is one of the good tanks in the game, it is always good to be versatile especially with Even Stevens or Odd One's Out Ruleset, also Serpent Of Eld has proven himself a great tank especially against range or melee-heavy lineup. With 4 Attack, 5 Speed, 2 Armor, and 7 Health, with the addition of Dodge ability, you cannot touch him.
Resurrect and Inspire abilities are epic, and think of it being available in a single card, would you not want to have it? Of course, I will want to have it, having Inspire from Range/Magic attacker is a big boost to your Melee units, and definitely is a great deal. The cons of Demented Shark is it cannot hit from the back aside from certain rulesets, while this card can attack from anywhere and it also has the ability to resurrect a fallen ally
Blind is a great ability especially with water splinter now, with Kelya who can give additional speed, an additional source of avoiding is definitely not a bad thing, it has great synergy with all this card and with the summoner and it can definitely fit perfectly in. I am also a great fan of the Blind ability, I have to say.

Seems expensive, how would I do it? (My thoughts)
I have asked this myself, this deck alone is quite expensive(more or less $350), and I don't have this kind of money outside of the game, even within the game. But I know with a consistent effort I would be able to reach my goal, there's still a very long way ahead of @splinterlands and I still have a lot of time, but I wish I could do this within 6 to 1 year, I really like the game and I am in this game for the long term, so this is a long term goal instead of a short term one.
To achieve this I will be constantly blogging about splinterlands to buy cards off the market, and also convert 50%-70% of SPT I get in my posts to SPS, and when time comes that $SPS value could soar again, I will use some of them to buy cards, I am pretty bullish and I know in time I will reach this goal of mine.
Also, I know with the help of the dividends I get from the Cartel, I would be able to achieve this in no time. I am an optimistic person and I know this can be achieved. This might get expensive and would take a little bit of time but it is possible, as long as I manage my investments correctly and make a lot of effort in Hive blockchain, I know this is within my grasp.
This is only one of the Decks that I am trying to build and I am still adding Fire, Dragon, Neutrals, Life, Earth on my next posts, it will be too long to add them all in here so I decided to divide them into three or even 4 postings.
Thank you for reading and see you on the next part of this post.
