Splinterlands | Alpha Card Purchase | Season 61 Report Card
Last season I made my most expensive single card purchase by taking this Alpha Lightning Dragon off @patrickulrich's hands for $2000.
I already owned a Lvl 3 (4 BCX) and a single card but at the time the better deal was to go for the max, with a view to offloading the Lvl 1 and 3 cards at some point.
Below is the current market for the Alpha Lightning Dragon, and the current best price for a maxed card at almost $1500 more than what I paid for mine.
$2000 is the most I've spent on anything, minus the car, in a long time and I did spend a few days eyeing up the card and asking myself if it was a good idea or not. The decision was made easier though due to value of the various rewards Splinterlands provides, and hopefully the report below (provided by https://kiokizz.github.io/Splinterlands/seasonReportCard) supports this.
(btw I've noticed that you can now set the beneficiary % at the link above from 1% to 100%, I left it at the default 10%)
|Rating||4136 - Champion III|
|Ratio (Win/Loss)||0.96 (168/175)|
Happy with Champion III, although I wasn't too far away from the next rating and 40 more chests. I burned my mana trying to get there but it was just a step to far this time. Win streaks were few and far between, and these are essential late on in the season to push for a rank.

Shouldn't really complain about getting 'free' cards each day, but the Gold Foil Cards table is looking a bit sparse!
Fortunately, my luck has changed with the beginning of the new season and I picked up a gold Epic card yesterday.
I don't play Life (or Death) and so this card has gone out for rent already and will probably bring in $2/3 a season, depending on how I manage my rentals.
I feel pretty lucky in that I can rent a bunch of cards and still keep higher level cards to play each day, and in brawls for my guild. I only rent a couple of max cards with the rest being duplicates or splinters I don't play. I've found during the rental boom that these lesser cards are readily snapped up, presumably by newer players looking to gain an edge in the lower leagues.
It's nice to have a max level card, a couple of rentals, and a couple of spares.
162916 DEC is approximately $1600 at todays prices, quite insane!
Business must be booming at peakmonsters.com too - they made almost $90 last season on my rentals alone.
SPS is currently priced at just under 43 cents following its ride up to a dollar in October. I'm trying not too sell too much at present and have instead opted to pool SPS with DEC at https://tribaldex.com/ or stake it on the Splinterlands site.
This provides a staking rewards boost and has helped with voucher allocation - a necessity if you are looking to get involved in the next card release - Chaos Legion. I've got 350 packs waiting to be opened so far, and think I'll stick at that tally until the general release (phase 2) is underway.
10273 SPS is $4,410 right now - I do like airdrops :D
Whilst the Alpha Lightning Dragon cost more than a couple of hot dinners, last seasons rewards alone easily covered the purchase.
It's been a wild ride these past few months, could we see a 1 billion dollar marketcap in the near future?
Recently, I've been told not to diversify away from Splinterlands by someone with way more (game) assets than me. I think HIVE could outperform these assets in the short term, and so I'm pretty chuffed to have some of each going into the festive season.
