Best Starter Cards to Level Up for Silver League - Chaos Legion edition

Screenshot (630).png

Hey Guys, this is the part 2 of my blog about the the best starter cards to level up for Silver league. You can check my part 1 post specifically for the Untamed edition. The part 2 will be focus on the Chaos Legion edition. As mentioned previously, my intention is to prepare for the Modern format and at the same time, bown and level up starter cards because the upcoming update will lessen the rewards when you using a starter cards (free), so it is better to have own cards to increase your battle rewards.

This is the link to the part 1 - Untamed edition --> https://peakd.com/splinterlands/@jpleron/best-starter-cards-to-level-up-for-silver-league-untamed-edition

If you still did not have a Splinterlands account, I highly recommended to register now and use my referral code --> https://splinterlands.com?ref=jpleron

As a recap, the criteria I will be using is very simple. Select 1 or 2 max level cards for Silver league per Splinter that would be game changing if use with max level at Silver league. This can be cards that gains new ability when it reaches level 5 for Common or level 4 for Rare cards. Or cards that are very useful in any scenario or rulesets.

With that, let's begin the discussion.

FIRE - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: TENYII STRIKER

TENYII STRIKER is one of the highly pick monster from FIRE Splinter in ranked matches and brawl matches with Chaos Legion frays. At level 4, it has 3 Melee damage, 3 Speed, and 6 HP. It has a SNEAK ability at its initial level while gains new ability, DODGE, at level 4.

It's DODGE ability helps Tenyii Striker to evade melee or ranged attacks. Placing Tenyii Striker at the backline will give Sneak attacking monsters some headache.

It is definitely the number 1 pick Fire monster right now. The only time you will not use this card is when Fog of War where Snipe and Sneak abilities are nullified.


2nd Pick: RADIATED BRUTE

RADIATED BRUTE is one of the go to pseudo tank for FIRE Splinter with the REACH ability. It can always partnered and placed at the back of LIVING LAVA or ANTOID PLATOON. At level 4, it has 3 Melee damage, 3 Armor, and 8 HP.

I picked this one as my 2nd priority because of the versatility it can give to your line-up.
With only 5 mana, you can partner it with Antoid Platoon for low mana battle or with Living Lava for a medium to high mana battle.

You can even combo it behind Grum Flameblade then of course partnered with Tenyii Striker.






This is the usual combo I used with the 1st pick (Tenyii Striker) and 2nd pick (Radiated Brute):

  • Tarsa (4) + Living Lava (7) + Radiated Brute (5) + Tenyii Striker (5) = 21 mana cap
  • Tarsa (4) + Antoid Platoon (4) + Radiated Brute (5) + Tenyii Striker (5) = 18 mana cap
  • Tarsa (4) + Antoid Platoon (4) + Radiated Brute (5) + Tenyii Striker (5) + Serpentine Spy (3) = 21 mana cap

And there are other monsters you can combine with this line-up.

WATER - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: DIEMONSHARK

DIEMONSHARK is one of the go to TANK for WATER Splinter with Trample ability at its initial level. At level 4, it gains a new ability, Enrage. It also has 3 Melee damage, 4 Speed, 6 armor and 8 HP.

I picked this one as my 1st priority because of its high offense and defense. The Enrage ability greatly increase its damage and speed. The Trample ability allows it to attack multiple times. The Summoner KELYA FRENDUL increases it Speed and Armor.

It is better against melee and ranged attacking monsters while it can be easily taken down with a heavy Magic damage.


2nd Pick: DEEPLURKER

DEEPLURKER is a melee monster with Opportunity ability at its initial level. It has a 4 Melee damage, 4 Speed, and 7 HP at level 5.

DEEPLURKER is the assassin of the Water Splinter. It is the one monster that always deals the killing blow.

Right now, we are still focusing on the Silver league but Deeplurker will be a lot deadly at Gold league and higher with the new ability at level 6.

EARTH - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: MYCELIC SLIPSPAWN

MYCELIC SLIPSPAWN is one of the low mana magic monster from EARTH Splinter with Tank Heal ability at its initial level. At level 4, it has gains a new ability Forcefield which reduces the damage to 1 from monsters with attack damage greater than or equal than 5.

I picked this one as my 1st priority because of the magic damage, Taunt, and the Forcefield ability it gains at level 4. It works best with the Summoner OBSIDIAN to increases its damage.

It is the only magic attacking monster with Taunt ability.


2nd Pick: GOBLIN PSYCHIC

GOBLIN PSYCHIC is a magic attacking monster with Tank Heal ability. It has a high damage as well for a 6 mana monster.

At level 4, it gains a new ability Affliction which allows it to counter Healing abilities. This is one of the in demand abilities right now since most of the monsters either have Tank Heal, Heal or Triage ability.

Taunt + Tank Heal combo:

Mycelic Slipspawn (Taunt) + Goblin Psychic (Tank Heal) + Khmer Princess (Tank Heal)

This is one of my favorite combo when using Earth Splinter. You can also add other Healers from other card edition as well. The only problem will be the Affliction ability since it can counter healing abilities. While Affliction can be counter using Cleanse ability.

LIFE - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: CHAOS KNIGHT

CHAOS KNIGHT is one of the newest Tank for the LIFE Splinter. It has a SHIELD ability that allows it to reduce physical damage from melee and ranged attacks.

At level 5, it gains a new ability GIANT KILLER. Giant Killer allows monsters to deal double damage against target monster with 10 or more mana requirement. This is a lethal ability especially in high mana battles which normally you place monsters with high mana.


2nd Pick: TIME MAGE

TIME MAGE is a magic monster with SLOW ability. With only 4 mana, it is one of the best cards to used in Little League ruleset where only 4 mana or less can be used.

This is a bit hard decision for choosing as 2nd pick since there is also BLINDING REFLECTOR with Magic Reflect at level 4, and also STITCH LEECH with 3 melee damage at level 5.

On the other hand, TIME MAGE at level 4 has 2 Magic damage, 5 Speed and 3 HP. The Slow debuff it provides is also critical in most ruleset.

DEATH - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: CURSED WINDEKU

CURSED WINDEKU is the most used TANK right now for DEATH Splinter with Thorns ability at its initial level.

At Silver league limitation, it will not gain new ability but the stats it has for a level 4 is already enough to make it as the 1st pick. At higher league, it is more deadly with the self Heal ability.


2nd Pick: RIFTWING

RIFTWING is a no-attack monster with only 4 mana requirement. It has a Flying ability and Scavenger ability at its initial level.

At level 4, it gains a new ability BACKFIRE which damages attacking monster when they missed their attack against RIFTWING. This is one of my new favorite especially against monster with low speed. The Flying ability also increases its chance to evade physical attacks.

NEUTRAL - CHAOS LEGION Edition
1st Pick: XENITH MONK

XENITH MONK is one of the best tank to used at Little League ruleset where only upto 4 mana monster can be used. It's also good at low mana cap battle.

XENITH MONK learns new ability at level 2, the self HEAL ability. At level 2, it is already a good choice but of course having a level 4 to increase its speed and HP is better.


2nd Pick: SUPPLY RUNNER

SUPPLY RUNNER is a range monster with high Speed and HP. This monster gains a new ability at level 5 which is the SWIFTNESS. This increases the Speed of all friendly monsters. The Speed increase is crucial that's why I consider it as my 2nd pick.


Aside from SUPPLY RUNNER, there are also other monsters worth leveling up like:

  • SCAVO HIRELING which increases its stats at level 5 but most importanly is the new ability it can have at level 6 (which is for Gold league). So we are basically preparing for the Gold league as well.
  • DISINTEGRATOR is another one since it gains new ability at level 5, TRAMPLE ability. DISINTEGRATOR's uses increases specially for ruleset which restricts card selection to melee only, or ruleset which allows melee to attack from any position.

This is based on my opinion, feel free to comment your own "best Chaos Legion card for Silver league" and let's have a fruitful discussion. Next post will be for DICE and Reward Cards that are available to use in Modern format.

As I mentioned in my previous post, there are other cards that are also good to level up aside from the list I shown above. And it is highly suggested to use max level cards allowed per league to take full advantage of the stats and skills of your monsters.
