Splinterlands: Purchasing more cards to improve my win rate
With the recent reward changes, I decided to improve my deck by buying some Chaos Legion cards to win more fights. Just like my last purchase, I decided on gold foil cards for my own deck. The extra 10% per card will help when trying to get both focus and seasonal chests. My latest season came in with a less than 50% win rate and it isn't ideal for me.
I choose to buy gold foil Chaos Legion cards because I am lacking leveled up chaos legion cards. As I started playing during the untamed edition, I have been fighting more in the modern rule set but most of my cards are leveled up untamed cards. Even after the changes so that I can use any splinter type for chests, I am still unable to stay above the 50% win rate for the season. It was close and I have noticed that the leveled-up cards have helped me.
Rather than using SPT tokens like last time, I decided to use the DEC I got from rentals and battles this time. I choose to buy a few cards that I use more often in fights. These cards are rare cards but they will directly help me more in fights as I only have level 1 versions of these cards. For example, the Merdaali Guardian card is used quite often when I use water for the tank heal ability. Xenith Archer is a 2 mana neutral monster and I use it sometimes as a filler monster when using Yodin Zaku. Xenith Monk has self-heal at level 2 and it will make for a good neutral tank. Scavo Firebolt is used along with Yodin Zaku and Soul Stranger could come in useful when I use death splinters. There are other cards that I wanted but I did not get them.
I should work on summoners but they are quite expensive. So I will save up some more DEC before I do so. I purchased these cards through Monster Market to get some DEC back for my purchase. There are also a few other cards that I want for my deck as well such as epic or legendary cards but they are also quite expensive.
The modern format isn't going as well as I would like but I still think it's the better option due to the cards in my deck. I may lose a few cards but I also don't have to worry about as many cards. I have noticed that there is also a different collection power requirement so I wonder how it will affect the rental market. I rearranged some rental prices but my rental income is starting to drop so I won't be earning as much. Either way, the new gold foil cards should help me earn more chests and it could be the difference between a win or loss.
How are you doing under the new match format?
