Barking Spider: Is this card a good bet? - Splinterlands battle weekly challenge
Welcome to a new Battle weekly challenge ... The month of July arrived, we are still in a pandemic situation, at least in Venezuela. that's why we are still at home. 2020 is undoubtedly the most turbulent year I have ever lived. I don't know about you but I already want it to end. I will leave the introduction someday and go directly to the main theme that this time is Barking Spider

The first thing that comes to my mind when I see this spider is Aragog, Hagrid's pet spider from the Harry Potter universe. his eyes are really very similar. Have you noticed this similarity before? Although I think it is because all spiders are the same. But we all know that the best spider in the world is our good neighbor spider-man ... enough, it's time to get serious.
The battle qualities of this reward edition card of the green splinter with range attack are very limited. It is a common card after all. At level 6 she acquires the "Blind" ability which increases the probability of missing attacks from monsters with melee and ranged. I think at level 6, if it becomes a very useful card, but all depending on the type of strategy you have.
In particular, I still do not have the Barking Spider at level 6. Even though it is a reward card that you can practically receive daily for free, I still have not managed to reach that level because between level 4 to 6 you have to spend an excessive amount of cards and by the time you get to level 5 you don't get any improvement. I think selling or burning it would be the best. so you can improve your own game.
I don't usually use this monster often instead I prefer to play with another card that contributes more to the battle such as Spirit Shaman and I compare it with this card only because the Shaman is also a reward card.
Or in another scenario Earth Elemental is a better option than Barking Spider. Don't get me wrong, all the cards have their positive and negative sides.
From my perspective I would not say that Barking has many negative points, I prefer to believe that it is not the card that fits my style of play and therefore I cannot see its qualities to win a battle, Finding in other cards those characteristics that unfortunately this spider does not have. Although I must admit that the times I have used it has not disappointed me.
