A solid Epic card is being highlighted this week in the Share Your Battle Challenge This is the Defender Of Truth!
The Defender of Truth is one of the cards that I didn't have for the longest time and often have faced in the past having no real answer to in specific situations where it is really strong. Since it's an epic card and I need it at a higher level (Level 4), it can get relatively expensive to buy unless you find a good deal on the market. It is one of those cards that I did eventually buy late last year actually getting an Alpha Edition card which was cheaper. It turned out to be my 5th most played card last season (See Report) with a 86.67% win rate!
One of the things I love about Splinterlands is that you can buy a card that will be useful in the game knowing you are likely going to be able to sell it with a profit at a later date if you are able to buy at the right discount price. I paid 7.45$ for my Alpha Level 4 Defender Of Truth which by now I should easily be able to get 12$+ for.
My main concern with these older cards is that the devs have all the power to devalue them along with enough incentives to do so since they are better off when new players buy packs with new cards instead of old cards from other players.
The rules in this match were Stampede and Ranged Monsters being able to attack from the first position. This rarely makes for an opponent to play a lot of Magic monsters so the +2 Armor ability from the Defender Of Truth really comes in handy especially combined with a double repair from the Armorsmith which I put in the last position to take sneak damage and the Lone Boatman. The Sacred Unicorn with Trample ability made good use of the game rules and was quite hard to kill because of the armor which regenerates along with getting self-healed and tank-healed by the Tortisian Chief. With Close Range and a high mana battle, the Cornealus was a good option as 2nd card.
I have been enjoying the game more lately as an actual game and this game was a good example as it allowed for quite some creativity making a really competitive deck based on the rules absolutely crushing the opponent.

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.
