Huge upgrade for my low budget Gold League strategy!

A Beta edition addition

My purchasing strategy in the Splinterlands Crypto Game so far has been successful: buy monsters, rent summoners. Renting Collection Power for Gold League isn't feasible if you don't already own strong Monsters. You'll need luck to even out rental costs. So I slowly purchase monsters instead, while renting a couple of summoners for 10 to 20 daily dec.

This was the case only until recently. I've acquired a level 4 epic summoner! No, I don't mean one of the newest epic summoners from Riftwatchers: I've added Xander Foxwood to my collection. It cost me $60, which I think was quite the bargain, considering it's a beta summoner that's very scarse at the moment.

Sure, I could've bought one of the newer Earth summoners instead, but I found out they were all more expensive than Xander Foxwood at the time of my purchase, each alternative costing more than $70. My intention in playing Wild League indefinitely further increased my interest in Xander Foxwood.

The fact that it was a level 4 epic for sale was icing on the cake: this card wasn't a single BCX higher or lower than I wanted according to my Gold League budget. Now, I just have to keep an eye out for a Xia Seachan or Bortus with considerably lower prices like this Xander turned out to be.

Are you specifically looking for these Beta summoners from later on in the edition versus the ones that were also in alpha? I really find these summoner have less strong abilities than the earlier one.

For instance Alric Stormbringer +1 magic, versus Bortus -1 magic... I know what I would choose

Curious for your strategy!

Level 5 Alric = $150, Level 4 Xia = $75
Also, Water Splinter Monsters I own aren't magic related except for Djinn Oshannus. shrug


(You were voted by @Mightyrocklee, because you're awesome. Enjoy this big bunch of SPT.)

Interesting, why you did not choose Alric with +1 Magic boost?

Alric is $150

Damn, that much? It is...a lot. but even a level 1 Alric is quite good all the way in Silver. With 1 Oshanus and 1 Rules of the seas rented, that is a powerful combo.


I play in silver/gold. I get to gold in the first half of the season. I don't want to play level 1 Alric because it takes too long to get to gold. I already own several gold-level earth monsters, too. Using an alric-oriented team is a lot more expensive if I want to get to gold league this quickly.

yeah. my strategy is to use two teams, yodin zaku on fire and alric on water. all the rest i rented. but i do have a posibilus now, for melee.
