An old card now, Garnet debuted towards the original release of expansion SSes, and has held her throne as a worthwhile card through this entire time, seeing both play and extensive subcard use. While many more powerful slash attackers have risen, enough that it would be hard to recount them all here, Garnet can still hold together in a lower-level deck. Once her low cost holds her back too much and she needs to be replaced, she then transitions into being literally best-in-slot sub for whoever replaces her.
When playing her, however, extreme caution is needed for one thing- She will fuse into her sisters, including Peridot, one of the most in-demand enhance cards in the game. With the underwhelming nature of Radiant Gleam, this is to be avoided at all costs, as it will almost inevitably result in a far worse hand.
A warning about Garnet's skill- the add-on AOE damage makes her a dangerous person to bring along when hunting for rings or feeder materials, as if her skill accidentally triggers it will hit these and possibly kill them/weaken them so the AI's cards will go after them. Swap her out for someone else before hunting for these.
As stated above, Garnet's sub skill is literally the best-in-slot for slash attackers. Her cost is slightly lower than average, so her potential stat offering is slightly less but at an astounding 35% bonus on straight+ the tiny difference between a 24 and a 28/30 cost card's stat boost is irrelevant, as nothing else in the game offers this level of sheer bonus. About the only competition she might find would be in Beryl, the second series of gem-girls who is cost 28 and offers a boost nearly as high. Even then, Garnet isn't per-se dethroned, especially as a lower cost means it's easier to fit other cards into your deck- merely given equal competition.
