Which Dice Monsters Should You Buy? | Splinterlands #120
When I joined splinterlands in July 2020, there was a lot of talk about the Azmare Dice edition cards released in September 2020. As I was new and didn't have loads to buy packs, I largely ignored it. I have a couple of cards that I had acquired from receiving Dice packs in the loot chests before they were all sold out. Apart from that, I purchased a couple of Dice summoners for rentals as they provide an excellent return for level 1 cards.
This brings me to today's post; I wanted to explore the usage data provided by the splinterlands data expert, @jacekw. While everyone is stacking SPS and DEC for the upcoming Chaos Legion packs, I want to see if there are a couple of crucial Dice cards that I should be looking to pick up on the cheap, while the euphoria is all focused on Chaos Legion cards!
One apparent reason Grenadier and Battering Ram are the most used Dice monsters is that they are from the Neutral Splinter. This makes total sense as these monsters can be used in combination with other Splinters.
Battering Ram at level 6, which will set you back $30, gains Shatter ability. This, combined with Opportunity ability, does allow it to pick off those high armored monsters.
Grenadier at level 4, which will set you back $172, gains +1 health, and combined with Snare and Oppress it can deal with Lord Arianthus or any other high health no attack monsters meta that you will encounter the higher you climb up the leagues.
I don't know the answer to whether it will be better to save money for the Chaos Legion packs and whether we will get better monsters. Still, I don't think it would be a bad idea to purchase some additional Neutral monsters as they can be used in combination with all other Splinters. Spending $30 on a level 6 Battering Ram seems like a no-brainer to me. Spending $170 on level 4 Grenadier is a bit of a sticky point for me, so I will wait to see if it gets cheaper as the supply of Chaos Legion monsters floods the market.
