Interesting developments

Posted by blantern on January 18, 2017

So in the middle of my purifiers upgrade, I hit a snag. Well it wasn’t a major snag I packed in 3 No More Mr Nice Guys, instead of 4 so I was left with an issue. Do I proxy out the 4th one or keep rolling; well we have a no proxy rule, because a couple of years ago, I hated people who’d buy a deck, buy 4 mobilize and proxy until they got it. No! In the draft you used what you got, same thing in BYOS so I said no proxies to promote growth as players, plus it caused the more yugioh minded people to step their game up. So I have to practice what I preach (shout to William Stryker) so I ran in with 3 No more mr.Nice guy and 1 survival of the fittest, and it actually worked! Crazy I know but it did! I thought about both, but that’s doing too much; it was fun though!!!

Card of the Moment: Common Cause

Posted by blantern on October 30, 2009

Card of the day is common cause, yes a team-up made it to the list again! (a record…)

First off, the text

Exhaust any number of characters you control and choose all their affiliations.

Ongoing: Crossover those affiliations.

The potential of this team-up is huge! Because of it I an dusting off my Skrull deck (with a couple of surprises) but I digress.

In a skrull deck, choose a character that has all opoising affiliations and exhaust him/her (Lylja, Mrs.Johnny Storm is the earliest drop; 4) now Black Bolt (Enemy Within) will be at 5/5 or better!!! But I digress yet again.

On the surface you may think this is useful for energize or 5 drop Mystique which is true to a degree the skrull will ve more tha. Efficent for the abuse of the card

Upgrade in motion

Posted by blantern on October 16, 2009

So I decided to change up my purifiers deck. Honestly, survival of the fittest had been kicking my butt more than helping, and then it hit me one day. On the 3 drop, Lady deathstrike usually gets her butt handed to herself, so I decided to shift out Nimrod for 3, and it hit me! Switch out no more mr nice guy for survival of the fittest, and after two of those, it changed my 4,5 drops are sick! Now my problem is finding a 6,7 drops with shift that are useful. I’m thinking of cable and doop, but to be continued.

Card of the moment: No More Mr Nice Guy

Posted by blantern on October 13, 2009

Long time coming…but first the text:

Ongoing: Non-army characters you control that share one or more names with a shifted card you own get +2/+2.

No More Mr.Nice guy, a card that has completely evolved Vs! From Cable to hulk, any character with the shift keyword, or weapon x can star in a solo deck that’s a problem! Back during the Golden Clone saga single character, I assembled Iron Man No More Mr Nice guy deck, you don’t want a ton of extremis upgrade 2/2 geeks walking around! Almost all characters with shift have big stats and those 2/2’s add up…quickly. 2 of these alone can almost outpump a beatdown! But this is a dangerious card, and weapon X (who’ll be festered later on) doesn’t help!

Golden Age Dr.Doom Vs the dangerious X-23 + Domino combo! It was non crisis and actually closer to MHG BYOS save for 5 drop power hungry doom and cover fire! I out pumped x-23 with cover fire! Amazing!!

Being more organized

Posted by blantern on August 14, 2009

The great catalog process begins….again.
I have decided to rebuild a golden and silver age book, mainly due to the sudden increase of formats and people wanting to mix things and themes up. I am debating on weither or Noe to go buy a common/uncommon toolbox. But until then….

Card of the Moment: Team Tactics

Posted by blantern on August 10, 2009

today we have a special CoTM!



Yes, thats right! Back  from MOR via Clone Saga Golden Single character, one of the most dangerious attack pumps, billed as a “poor mans (savage) beatdown” but in this format its quite dangerious.

But first, as always, lets state what the card says:


As an additional cost to play team tactics, exhaust a character you control. Target attacker with the same affiliation as the exhausted character gets +x atk, where x equals the attack of the exhausted character.

Now, I will simply point out some pro’s and con’s of the card, as well as some abuse.

The pro’s – You can get a massive atk boost, and also save a character from attacking. You can sacrifice a 2 or 3 into a 5 and exhaust a 4 to do so, not risking your setup in the process.

The Con’s- Its not a for the turn boost, so it someone resets the attack, then you’re basically screwed.


Abuse! Its a few combo’s, but here is a recipe of love for team tactics:



1 x Cyclops Astonishing X-Man

1 x 5 Drop Cyclops [Ultimates or Fearless Leader],

1 or 2 x Fearless Leader

1 or 2 x Team tactics

1 x Blind Sided

Setup is simple, blind side the victum, (pray they don’t origin story but….) Attack with Cyclops (6 drop), once its legal, team tactics his 5 drop  [+10 Atk], Cyclops effect triggers, and the 5 re-readies. Team tactics again [+10 Atk] then if you have a way to add another leg to the attack, fearless leader and Team tactics [+10 Atk]


So lets review Kiddies:

13 + 10 + 10  [if you have no other way to extend the combo] = 33 + Blindside = Game on a low drop.

Hulk! Clone Saga?!?!? How?

Posted by blantern on August 3, 2009

This idea came from the 6 drop weapon X hulk. He can SHIFT!

That’s the deal breaker. I mean his effect alone is worth it, he can defend for free, but I digress. I wonder about the fantastic grey hulk, but I can’t get his effect off in a good way so baaaaaah. I basically gutted my warbound (!) deck and went all Hulks, I decided to add 4 no more mr nice guy and 4 of the weapon X Hulk cause he helps the cause. 4 of the warbound search, 1 Enemy of My Enemy, 1 hero of 2 worlds, means I can get A hulk at any moment. 4 Messiah complex, with massive attack cards. I have 2 8 drops, the warbound and the ultimates. I run 2 decimations so I can KO my field for the 8 drop (it’s an exile trick but I felt it appropriate for the situation) The only problem I can’t stop the Jean Grey lock, but planet weapon should help even the odds. Actually the only thing I have to stop the Jean Grey massive attack run without re-setting with the Phoenix is righteous Anger, then 28 direct. (After 8 the Jean Grey deck uses the 8 drop to reset so they can recruit the 5 and she’s massive, or they keep resetting until the 10 and have 2 5’s. Real nasty. All I can do is wait until they don’t recruit the 8, then go in for the kill
