Best card for each tier

Playing limited some of us want to use the best card possible meaning the one you dominate, have an advantage and can just outplay other cards. So what are the cards as of now which are your go-to cards. See below what I think, some are obvious, some can be argued. Who do you have?

Lets start easy with Golds all the way to the top. I skip bronzes and silvers as they are even to low for limited requirements (at least I hope :joy:)

Gold (no brainer):
Damon Jones

Emerald (no brainer):
Daequan Cook

Saphire (no brainer):
Matt Barnes

Kevin Porter Jr. (Thad Young very close 2nd)

Amy (first tough one):
still Dino? (maybe Bagley)

Diamond (next tough one):

PD (no brainer):
2Bol :joy:




is matt barnes better than novak?


Gold: Damon Jones

Emerald: Jeff Green

Saphhire: Novak

Ruby: Bonga (MPJ is close)

Amy: De’aron Fox (I know I am alone but he is so damn fast)

Dia: Sean Elliott

PD: Ben S

Opal: Admiral

DM: haven’t had Any.


Halliburton is great but I just don’t find him as magi al as everybpdy else.

Honorable mentions:
PD Bowen and Opal Marion. I love those two.

At this point I use mainly rewards. Had some baaaads sales so lost a lot of MT on Opal AD and Tmac


I’m on the Amy De’Aaron Fox and Diamond Sean Elliott team with ya - although I do love Amy Dino (especially with some added HOF badges). Elliott just doesn’t miss and his shot is so easy. Halliburton is great too, so maybe it’d be better to do this by position?

I’ll nominate Silver Bol Bol and Silver Thon Maker. Those two and Ruby KPJ destroy the CPU in TTOff for me.

Gold Robert Covington badged up is also really nice and has good defensive tendencies. And gold Nerlens Noel and Mo Bamba are pretty fun, too (for golds, at least). Nothing like Damon Jones and his wet jumper.

For me personally

Gold: JJ Barea, 3 pointer almost as high as Damon Jones but much faster and much better ball handling

Emerald: Honestly don’t recall

Sapphire: Novak, but Deshawn Stevenson is a close 2nd. Good 3 and D wing with an easy release

Ruby: Thad Young, MPJ is good too. Low key a HUGE fan of Yuta Tabuse

Amethyst: Dino, though the new Matt Bonner is giving him a run for his money.

Diamond: Haliburton, easiest so far.

Pink Diamond: Bol Bol, before him I really liked Dumas, really liked OOP Magic, and the new Korver is fun. But Bol Bol blows them all out of the water.

Galaxy Opal: Giannis, no question since I bought him he’s been arguably my best card overall including Dark Matter cards. Honorable mentions include OOP Durant, I’ve used Michael Redd a ton since getting him, Julius Randle is very fun to use, and Billy Owens was neat too.

Dark Matter: Honestly the toughest call for me. Overall probably Wilt. His shot was never difficult for me and that was arguably his only weakness. KAJ was fun, Melo is a great scorer and nice to have, and if you get his shot down Bosh is super underrated. Also just got the JR Smith last night so I’m starting to use him now and he’s better than I expected. Kobe was kind of disappointing for me but I’ve never been good with Kobe cards.
