Splinterlands | Octopider Challenge
Any card that has a cost of 8 mana+ is useful for high mana battles and so is the Octopider which has 4 Ranged Damage and 4 Speed on 7 Health at Level 5 with the Demoralize ability which can come in really useful. Any battle where it is likely for the opponent to play a lot of Melee cards is a good spot to have this card included also given the fact that the Beta Death summoner has the same ability for a double Demoralize effect
That is what pretty much this battle was about with Game rules of all Melee Monsters getting the Sneak ability while all non-flying monsters were getting at the end of each round. The combination of the Death Summoner & the Octopider by default gave the opponent -2 damage on Melee monsters while the Chain Golem in last position reduced it by 1 more making it pretty impossible to kill. My opponent also played the Chain Golem in last position. As for the other cards, I included 3 that had the fly ability Phantasm, the Corrupted Pegasus, & the Phantom Soldier also adding the Haunted Spirit which has self heal to counter the damage for it not being a flying monster.
Even if my opponent had all his monsters at a similar level, I likely would have always won the matchup so overall it was an ok matchup that was won fairly easy keeping all of my monsters alive.

Important: Treat games in the first place as games and not as investment opportunities, Splinterlands allows you to earn some money and get good returns but you are much better off flipping burgers in Mcdonalds when looking at the money earned for the time invested. Investing also comes with a risk of card values going down.
