Updated Official Trading Tier List
« on: March 20, 2017, 02:21:53 PM »
Hey everyone!

I have created a new and updated official trading tier list, updated from the original post found here. Just a quick disclaimer, this list is mainly based on my vast experience as a trader as well as the input and validation of several other big name players. This list, along with any trading guide in an open market economy like IW, should be taken with a grain of salt. Players, particularly those new to the game, should use this list as a way to verify card values and avoid getting scammed but in the end all that matters is that both parties are happy with a trade. A special thank you to NTL, Dogeee, ES, Newport5000, and Drewmb10 for their feedback and help with verifying this list.

The above rares are all especially valuable and are a level above top tier. What separates these from regular rares is how essential they are to their purities. If you have the purities to run the above cards you will almost always want 3 copies in your deck. Because they are such essential staples, they trade for much more than other rares. It's not uncommon to trade 2 regular rares for one of the above cards. As an additional note, stockpiling these cards is a fantastic way to grow your collection. Personally I have about 10-20 of each of the above cards, and still continue to trade for more whenever I can.

Top Tier:
Summoning Stone ****
Hehkeem, the Corrupted ****
Taiga, Combat Reconstructor ****

Is firestarter really still that bad? I feel he's at least more useful than Liand, he can clear a bunch of defenders. 7 damage a turn isnt something many things can survive for long.

It's not so much that he's bad (because he's really not), but more so the fact that so many copies exist out there and most people don't really need to trade for him.

Been away a lot of time from trading, but i think Martyr of life should be higher, propably *****. Dark Wish 2nd best epic (after Calamity), Klore +1*, Sol +1*, Divine Demonic top tier with ***, Soulseller on top of the middle tier, Alpha too. I can see Martyr of Chaos in middle tier,
I would put at least +1* to Undeath WIsh, Oblivion, Omnitron, Avatar of lingbao. Nyx can go on top of the middle tier, i think Tygrugh deserves more, top tier or at least on top of the middle tier. I would put No more heroes, the humans are dead and voracious golath on bottom tier.
Hehkeem might deserve to be special case rare. I think devil of despair, cresil deserve top tier, Eagle-Eye higher in middle tier, Zuza, Proctul slighly higher, last time i checked, mechanism was turned to an uncommon. Raise Dead definitely middle tier, come on you can trade that card for almost any rare, tinkerer, daode, caretaker, super infestious zombie, sinister corruption, untapped wilderness, kyrallic, "new" rita at least middle tier, give more * to demon of fear, -1* to aunissial,

Remove Kung Ji and Kidnapper from uncommons and add CTA, Eucalyptus Tree, Splitter Lite, Mad Monk, Spirit of the Ancient Guardians, Fear, Infested Abomination, Harbringer of Law, Mysterious Box of Wonder.
