Leveling Up Your Neutral Monsters For Level 3
I've spent the last several weeks talking about some targets to level up for bronze league. After feeling like you have some command over bronze league it may be worthwhile to dip your toes in silver league.
The max levels that you can play for silver league are level 5 commons, level 4 rares, level 3 epics and level 2 legendaries. I have a few cards maxed out for silver league, but certainly not all that I want to and when you're getting started in silver league there are other important stepping stones along the way. I'll give an example with my reward card summoners.
I have Pembrook Nymph maxed out for Silver at level 4, but that's the only one. Octavia Shadowmeld, Lobb Lowland and Helios Matriarch are only maxed for bronze at level 2. Eternan Brune and Franz Ruffmane are at level 3. So that's what I'm referring to as leveling things up for level 3. Most of the summoners that we play with are rare. When we get them up to level 3 we can start getting added benefits in silver league without really being maxed out for silver league. It's an important stepping stone.
At level 3 you can play level 4 commons, level 3 rares, level 2 epics and level 2 legendary monsters. It's interesting that you can't go any higher with epic monsters than you did in bronze, so you won't see any bronze monsters on this list, but at level 3 you can start playing level 2 legendary monsters and some of those are incredible.
I think these are some of the most impactful neutral monsters to start leveling up if you happen to have some level 3 rare summoners to pair them with. These upgrades will also work if you have level 2 legendary summoners.
At level 3 Gargoya Devil picks up a third ranged attack damage.
Arkemis the Bear
Arkemis starts out with the protect ability which is the primary reason to use Arkemis for any lineup, but at level 4 Arkemis also picks up the halving ability. At 12 mana Arkemis doesn't belong in every lineup, but when the mana cap is high enough Arkemis is busted.
At level 4 Junker picks up a 3rd melee attack damage.
At level 2 Doctor Blight picks up the poison ability.
Chain Golem picks up the void ability at level 2.
Most legendary monsters pick up another ability at level 2, some of those abilities are more impactful than others. Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on whether you already own one) the legendary neutral monsters that pick up the best abilities at level 2 will set you back about $40 per BCX.
When picking out new cards to level up, it's important to consider whether you'll be playing in modern or wild format. All of the cards that I discussed in today's post are legal in modern. If you start to level these cards up remember that they will revert to a lower level if you play them with a rare summoner at level 1 or 2, or even a level 1 legendary summoner.
I would love to hear what some of your favorite cards are to level up. I'll keep pointing out the ones I can. Another great place to find them is the cards that you get beat by on the battlefield. I can't tell you how many times my tank was nerfed by an opponent's Arkemis before I got mine up to level 4.
