Make sure to set your filters to ‘Adult,’ Breed Count as zero, and Purity as six if you’re starting out with the game. Once you are more familiar with the game, you can experiment with the filters a little more.

How to Choose 3 Axies that you want to buy for getting started

In Axie Infinity, players need to purchase three types of Axies to have a smooth onboarding experience: Front Axie, Middle Axie, Back Axie.

Front Axie: The front Axie usually needs high base health (55 HP and above) and should ideally be a Plant, Reptile or Dusk class. Try to pick cards that have a good shield to help you survive the round while you build up your combo cards and energy.

Middle Axie: The middle Axie is usually the most versatile one in your lineup. They can either act as a second line of defense or be used to gain energy to prepare for combo attacks or attack the opponent to soften them up for the back Axie.

Back Axie: The back Axie should usually be a pure damage unit that can finish off the opponents with high speed stats and Backdoor cards with it.Make sure to pick out and purchase Axies that have a 0 breed count, as it will allow you to breed your own Axies in the future to create more Axies that you can either use to play or sell for money.
