RentMoney's Deals & Steals + Giveaway!

What is RentMoney's Deals & Steals?

In this topic I will list two things. One will always be a Splinterlands asset I have for sale on the market. I'll offer it at a discounted price here on my blog. The second thing I will list (The Steal) is a Splinterlands asset that is for sale by someone else in which I think has potential to give decent returns. There will be a giveaway at the end of this topic so if you have no interest in the Deals & Steals portion just scroll on down to the section that is titled GIVEAWAY.

The Deal

Sadly the time has come in which I have decided to sell a Splinterlands card or two. The decision wasn't easy but reading the rules for the upcoming Splinterlands airdrop its better to hold DEC than it is a card in which USD value exceeds its DEC burn rate value. Not too worry I'm not too sad as I have almost 25,000 BCX worth of Splinterland cards and I can't play with them all. I'm sure my monsters will go to a good home.

Its been awhile since I looked at the stats shown in the above screenshot. The most shocking to me is the amount of Reward cards I have. As you can see 2/3rds of my collection are rewards cards. I'm not sure what to make of that but I thought it an interesting fact that was worth mentioning. I got a little off topic here (Sorry about that) so lets get back on topic .

This Week's Deal

That's right, go big or go home. Since this is my first Deals & Steals topic I figured I'd offer up one of my Gold Foil Legends. I picked this specific Gold Foil Legend because I have two of them. Currently the cheapest Lord Of Darkness GFL for sale in the Splinterlands marketplace is for the amount of $749.98 in which is being sold by yours truely (@rentmoney). The cheapest Alpha version is double that at $1,500 USD. The version that is being offered here today is the BETA version. There's two Beta GFL LOD listed in the Splinterlands marketplace at the low price of $750* after which the next cheapest is listed for $1200 USD.

Lord Of Darkness Lore:

The Lord of Darkness is the ruler of the Dark Eternals of Mortis. Long ago, when he was named Lagfael, he discovered the truth of darkness from a Dark Tzar who paid him a visit from the dark eternity. Defecting from the living of the Splinterlands, Lagfael wrote the Dark Codex and began recruiting souls for the Dark Eternal collective. The Lord of Darkness loves combat, and his mighty flame whip leads Dark Eternal teams to victory again and again at Mount Mox.

I don't plan on leaving my LOD Gold Foil listed for long. I just listed it moments ago and once this topic reaches post payout I will unlist it (If it doesn't sell before then). Anyone who stumbles to the Splinterlands marketplace looking to buy one will have to pay the full price of $749.98 USD. If you are in the market for a GFL LOD and stumble upon this topic first than you are in luck because I'm offering it here for the discounted price of 700,000 DEC. That's a 50,000 DEC savings if we go by the $1USD/1000 DEC value that Splinterlands pegged the DEC/USD value at. Currently the secondary market price for DEC is slightly above that peg but it usually always settles somewhere around the peg price of $1/1000 DEC.

The Steal

In this portion of the Deals and Steals topic we will go over a Splinterlands card that is listed for sale in the Splinterlands marketplace in which I think has the potential to give decent ROI (Return On Investment). No-one knows for sure what tomorrow brings so I base my findings on the state of todays marketplace.

Short Version As To Why GF Raging Impaler Is Today's Steal

(1) There's only five for sale for realitively cheap (Price Control)
(2) The GF Raging Impaler is the cheapeast Beta Gold Epic currently for sale
(3) Its sale price of $33.60 is almost $30.00 USD cheaper than the average cost of an Epic Gold Foil (BETA Version).

Long Version

Keeping with the gold theme in this topic this weeks steal is the Epic Beta Neutral card Raging Impaler. For the most part the Beta Neutral cards seem to get overlooked by most Splinterland players. This means there's deals to be had. As the screenshot above shows the cheapest one on the market today (7/1/2021) is being sold for $33.60 by @peakmonsters. What makes this card a great deal isn't its abilities or its very cool design. Nope its neither of those things. The thing that makes this card a Steal of a deal is its currently the lowest priced Epic Gold Foil in the Beta collection.

If we ignore summoners we will see that the most expensive Epic Gold foil of the BETA collection is currently listed for $90.00 USD. If one was to beleive that all Gold Foil Beta Epics will eventually be around the same price than there's potential here for a three times profit return. The second cheapest Gold Foil Beta Epic is listed for $43.98. That's about $10 USD more than the Raging Impaler is listed for. Further more there's only five Raging Impaler monsters available for sale so the supply for sale is very small making it easier to dictate a sale price once these cheap ones are sold.

I looked at one more aspect when deciding the Raging Impaler was a good deal at the price of $33.60 USD. That aspect was the average price of Beta Epic Gold Foils. This was easy to do as I just added up the USD value of all twelve Epic cards and then divided it by the total available Beta Epics in existence. The current total cost of purchasing one of each Beta Epic Gold Foil in existence would be $748 USD. Divide that number by 12 (the amount of Beta Epics in existence) and we get the average price of $62.33 USD.

I would love to take you up on this weeks LOD Deal but that's way over my price range. The Raging Impaler Steal though, that one I will have to consider. Since I just put all my DEC on the DAI/DEC LP yesterday I'm tapped out, but maybe I can figure something out.

I'm definitely interested in the SPT delegation and I'll tag @moonthumb and @mango-juice.

I hear yeah, the GFL's are getting costly.

Looks like someone already purchased one of the Raging Impaler's available for sale. I don't think the BETA neutral golds sell that often so Its likely you have lots of time to consider your purchase. There's still three available for $35*. The fifth is listed for $50.

I can't help but feel, with Land coming later this year, that I will be kicking myself for not grabbing those three now for $35.

It'll be interesting to see what land does for card prices. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand cards will be needed for land "development" so that might drive up prices but on the other hand the new items crafted from land might be the new craze thus we possibly might see a drop in card prices as people rush to sell/trade their "old" cards for newer minted items.

Good point, I hadn't considered people dumping cards to buy the crafted items. I always just assumed there would be a shortage of cards as everyone used their best cards to work the land.

Good luck in the raffle.

I hope you don't mind but I took a little peak at your Splinterlands collection via PeakMonsters. I see you are new to the game so I delegated you a level 2 summoner and a handfull of monsters. I hope they help you progress up the leagues. I will remove the delegations at some point but they are gntd to stay for both this season and next.
