Undervalued/Underappreciated and Underpriced: The Grumpy Dwarf (Get One For Free Inside)

in steemmonsters •  8 months ago 


Currently I believe the Grumpy Dwarf is seriously undervalued. Not only for its playing abilities but also with its price range as well. If we were to go back around four weeks ago this card could be purchased for as little as 3-4 cents. I know this because I bought a few dozen or more at the time.

Today the card is priced at 0.09 cents and I bet that price will continue to rise. Many dismiss this card due to others with slightly better stats that provide the same attacks as it does such as the Dragon card MANTICORE. Some forget to factor in that the MANTICORE can only be used with a Dragon Summoner while the Grumpy Dwarf can be used in any Splinter as its a neutral card.

Take a look at the above. .. ... It only cost 0.09 cents. Its by far the cheapest Beta Neutral card you can purchase today. The next cheapest common in the Beta Neutral collection will cost you 0.29 cents, That's over 3 times the price of the Grumpy Dwarf. Anyone looking to get their hands on some Grumpy Dwarfs may want to consider doing so before the price rises even more.


Having run from a great terror on the other side of the world, the Dwarves are new to the Splinterlands. They don’t take kindly to strangers, and since they are now surrounded by strangers, the residents of the Splinterlands have taken to calling them Grumpy Dwarves. They are quite fierce with axes.

I've been loading up on rewards cards lately thinking that as they go out of print the prices will go up.

If the past is any indication, that's a smart move.

greetings, @rentmoney

its very nice when it arrives level with "rage"!!!!

I bought 4 grumpy dwarves for 0.04$ 2 days ago :D

Nice, I was on my way to buy some more as I thought they were still at 0.04.

...... looks like someone beat me to the punch.

ya I need to work on leveling this card up a bit. it's one I seem to use a lot

tagging @coffeedrinker112

Its certainly a good substitute for many of the other cards and its cheaper to level then the ones its substituting for.


I like the enrage of grumpy dwarf. Use it on costs 4 or less. If my number happens to be drawn send the card to @tillysfamilyfarm
As I have enough grumpy dwarves in my deck

Never thought it from that perspective. We should also consider that it has low mana and has a shield too. @sayalijain please check this

  • Enrage at level 5.


I used grumpy dwarf most when I'm playing around with my "dead" accounts in bronze and only have the phantom cards.

tagging @pedrocanella

Yeah, its one that is included in the starter set.

I have about 200 of them but none that are fully leveled.

Actually grumpy dwarf is "slow" card. As you already mentioned in dragon summoner you will use manticore , In earth summoner , I prefer Minotaur warrior.
In water quest , I prefer pirate archer or medusa at second position, In fire, I prefer Giant Roc and in life I prefer silvershield warrior.
I use grumpy when ruleset says slow card are first to hit.

True its all about preference and a single splinter card is usually better than a counter part you can find in the neutral collection. But don't overlook the significant difference in cost. If one was looking for the least expensive way to have a reach card the Grumpy Dwarf would be the one to purchase as it can be played with all Splinters and not just one. A person could level up a Grumpy Dwarf and not have to worry about leveling up a handful of other cards as the card is a good enough all around substitute for many others. There are also situations where its good to have two reach cards in the line-up.

His great when you have double shield and his reach is activated and maybe you have an inspire one your team he can do some real

I could definitely use this Grumpy Dwarf since mine is still level 1. Tagging @cl0ve

I like it BUT green red White has Similar card with better stats. So I Only play it with Blue. Never play black

I will sell my only copy as soon as the price go up. The card is trash)) almost every class has it's own card with the same effect.

Posted using Partiko Android

Its a great stand in for all those other cards with similar abilities/uses . The main attraction is that its cheaper to level one Grumpy Dwarf then it is to level up all the other cards that can only be played in one splinter each.

Ok, it is a good point)

Meh, the grumpy dwarf. But still, would love to level the ones in my collection up.

I think @a-secondchance would love a freebie card too.

This card is not undervalued.
It is overpriced. It needs to be between Rusty Android & Undead Minotaur.

I disagree for the reasons I outlined in the topic and comment section.

I Love the Grumpy DWARF it Reminds me of how I get when I am upset with my neighbors.......
