Welcome to another article where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! The first week of this new season, with the new account bound reward cards, has now passed. All of the prior reward cards no longer drop, even if they hadn’t hit their initial target print runs.
It feels like I’ve gotten fewer of the new cards on my main account, in Gold League, though that may also be due to getting fewer chests per day. The new cards are also much more playable in Silver league with fewer copies, so I’ve been getting a bit more use out of them on my InvestYGator alternate account. The new cards do seem fairly strong, though sometimes only in niche situations.
Astral Entity, the second to last Chaos Legion Legendary summoner card, also came out at the start of this season. I got my one copy air dropped from my previous purchase of Chaos Legion packs. I could theoretically get more, but only got the set minimum amount.
I’m not going to give my thoughts on all of the new cards right way, but will comment on a few that I’ve gotten so far. To start off, here’s the breakdown of the past week:

It certainly does appear that I got a lot more cards on my Silver account this past week. Helios Matriarch has been fun to play with, even at level 1. However, it is a bit odd having to rely completely on random luck to get more cards.
Guild Brawl #129, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild came in third from last place once again.
Vs. ATZEKATZE of PIZZA A SLICE OF MADNESS
Vs. JUAN22P of YGG ROSTERS – opponent fled.
Vs. MICHAELJNZ of PLAYER CONTROLLED BETS
Vs. BENDMV of COLLECTIVE VISION
Guild Brawl #130, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild came in fourth place this time around! Though, with little help from me.
Vs. DRKQAOS of PIZZA 420 THE CALZONES
Vs. SCHAUMBURGER of DECIPHER’s CLAN
Vs. ANGELINAFIA22 of MERCENARY GUILD
I opened up one more Gladiator pack:
While this has already been a longer article than usual, I also opened another 100 packs with the release of the new Chaos Legion summoner! Here’s what I got:
Only one more Legendary summoner left for Chaos Legion, which will be the second Dragon summoner. I expect it will be here around the end of this month. So far, they’ve been a lot better balanced than their Untamed counterparts, like Yodin or Byzantine Kitty.
The new reward cards are interesting to get, but I feel like it’s going to be a long time until I get enough copies to have them leveled to play in Gold league, let alone Diamond. At any rate, that’s more than enough news for one week! I’ll be back next time with the season wrap up!
