IMHO, from someone grinding his way to a fully upped Fire deck...

T50 is great if you want rares (mainly weapons + shards)
AI5 - If you have a very high win % deck for AI5 than you should find yourself earning a lot of cards. You can gain  :electrum fast too if you have a good deck that gets you EMs like my Fearless Fire (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,20456.0.html) deck.

FG obviously more upped cards if you can manage the wins.

Most of my ups have been from AI5. I got mad at FGs recently as I was winning alot using a modified RoL deck but getting BAD spins so I've switched to AI5/T50 recently.

I don't think this is true at all, not compared to T50.  Your chances aren't as good as T50 because you've got more onesy-twosy cards in FG decks, compared to sets of six in T50 decks.

I would say they are definitely worth it, all you need is a field control (CC and PC) deck with some SoG if you can manage to make an upgraded deck, and EMs will be there.  For an extra kick though, Sundials can be used to get that first strike after you heal, making EMs a lot easier; only counter would be poison, which just means use them to use only your weapon to time the damage so that your weapon attacks last on the kill turn. Try to use skills for control since they have practically infinite use so long as the card isn't destroyed.  In all honesty the best skilled control element would be Gravity.

Okay I did alot of score/elec grinding last few days and switched alot between different AI's since I get bored quickly ;)
I came to the following conclusion:

- AI3: boring as hell, constant stream of score and elec, especially after selling the cards you win.

- T50: sometimes frustrating. Although I loathe people for putting up multiple scores, the abundance of farms end of every week makes that this is prob the fastest way to gain score but especially elec. At the start of a week however, trying to fight yourself through CCYB/USEM/PvPbow variants is not as rewarding.

- AI5: fun and versatile, but not effective. The score is ok-ish if you manage to get EM's. Problem is that Em decks will be slow as hell, and AI5 already is quite slow. The biggest problem for me is that AI5 has so little copies of so many cards (not to mention non-upgraded and upgraded mixed), thus reducing the chance to win a certain card to a minimum.

- AI6: depends on the deck used ofc, generally I'd say this is the best way to gain elec but can be a killer for your score. I only do a few matches (1-15) each day for fun. It does feel rewarding owning a FG :D

I've been playing HBs almost exclusively for a few months by now (since december), since I fed up with all the similar decks I encountered in T50/PvP. Actually, since then, I doubled my score (was 30k), won around 15-20 upped cards (even rares and weapons),and made 3 fully upped decks. I even don't like to "grind", playing an average 4-5 matches/day, because it's just more than enough for me..
Of course, you'll need a deck that can handle many of the countless situations offered by lvl5, but something like a CCYB for example can do the trick. It's definately not fast (average games are 300+secs), but I'd say it's quite rewarding.
Thus, as mentioned before me, it's different (almost)every time, and can bring up very nasty and interesting combos sometimes(like a voodoo+black hole+catapult madness :o ), and much more safe than FGs.

well if you have CCYB it is better to play FG, because the chances of getting a card from them is much better then from HB.

 I would say its worth it. But i think  i'm one of the few who would farm them even with other fully upped god killers  :P

For coins I only know how to kill FGs and sell their cards, playing for EM with weaker foes is just not mentally rewarding. What I find interesting is the chance to win the new rares from weaker opponents. I still can't make a fast killer deck for AI5 though, most of the time it feels like fighting a retarded FG, long and boring.

lvl3->1500 :electrum x15->lvl5
t50->1500 :electrum x30->FG

Trainer and lvl1 and 2 are more for learning purpose.

Lvl3 and lvl5 are good for fun, relax and score.

t50 and fake gods are good for cards, money(not always) and challange.


I usually go for halfblood because you get always new games and makes you think better ideas on how to improve your deck.
Lvl5 is way less frustrating because with a good deck you can manage to win even if the opponent has more power than you.
Fg are some like a coin toss match like t50...
