The Artifact Card List from Steam

Artifact Card List

Since the release of the game in 2018, the Artifact Card List became one of its kind with its innovating gaming mechanics. Inspired by the MOBA structure of the Dota 2 game, Artifact arranged its catalog of cards peculiarly. This time isn’t just creatures and spells; there are items, tower improvements and the three-lane elements thrown in the mix. Being the first expansion of the game, it aims to reduce complications by highlighting the primary stats of the cards. With this, I mean that the attack, defense, and health (those three little numbers in the bottom) have more impact in the game. Which implicates that you may drop a pair of creatures in the lanes. Focus in feeding those fortunate things to destroy the enemy’s tower quickly.

Through Artifact’s life spam, the player base became the judge of the quality of some cards in the game. Like any other trading card game, the rarity of the card doesn’t always mean that it is going to be expensive. Some cards that even though are “rare,” it doesn’t intend that it has a meaningful impact on the board. Taking this into consideration, the value on the market from one specific card may vary according to its relevance. Besides that, the Steam Market tends to change depending on the demand and supply of a singular item. Plus, we already had one patch with “nerfs” to create more balance in the game, which created an impact on the market.

Do we need the Steam Market?

The video game platform called “Steam” isn’t just a virtual store. Although it is the main function, there are other components in the middle. One of such elements is the Steam Market. This part of the platform focused on exchanging between virtual goods and your “steam wallet.” It requires some steps to configure, but once you have it all sorted, there’s nothing else to keep you from getting more cards in your collection.

At the time of this article’s release, all the rare cards from Artifact are obtainable for ~$80 (With ~$100 you can have them all). This price may vary between months, depending on the demand. Just like the “stock market” you can never be certain when will the values change. Although some tips can give you some advantages in the market:

  • Be patient: Some virtual goods tend to devaluate after some “hypes” are gone.
  • Always keep a lookout for “steam sales”: When some of the gaming offers are in place, people tend to sell their virtual goods to buy other video games.
  • Learn to read the “Median Sale Prices” graphs: With this graph, you have a better understating about the popularity of one item, always try to aim for the lowest price possible.
  • Always be aware of Artifact’s updates: When the rare hero card “Axe” got a nerf, its price went down quickly. Events such as this one can create some impacts on the market.

Taking it to the Next Level

The Esports part of Artifact is beginning to be relevant at this point. If you feel like you can make it for the “pro” scene, there is no better time than now. The entire Artifact’s Card List is just a few clicks away. Having that kind of “power” in your collection would improve your constructed experience in the game. Plus, you’ll be able to use your imagination and create undiscovered decks for those perfect runs.

Remember that you only need cards in your collection if you’re focusing just on constructed matches. If the “draft mode” is your thing, then you don’t need to worry about the number of cards in your repertoire. With just $20 (to purchase the game) you can play all the draft matches you want casually; still, though, it doesn’t hurt if you have the entire collection in your hands and practice with bots to master all the card mechanics and have a precise knowledge of those particular cards.

Whatever the case may be, remember always to have fun in your game. Keep crumbling those towers/ancients and aim for the highest rank possible.
