Card of the Moment: Mystique – Raven

Posted by blantern on March 17, 2009

One random thing about Vs, there are some cards that should be rare, but isn’t. Plus there are rares that should be common/uncommon. Today’s focus, is not only a card that should be rare, and also changes the game in so many ways.

But for starters, lets go with the text:

Mystique has all character names while in your deck, hand, or ko’d pile.

Also, she’s a 1 drop 1/2 Range.

Now, she has all names, which means she has so many cards to combo off of, and she also makes more cards playable. Not since Harley Quinn, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, or Layla Miller – Butterfly has we have a NON-Banned, Janky 1 drop with multiple uses.

By herself, she can power-up any other character, which is powerful in any format.

For starters, Hero’s of Two worlds (To play, discard a character card.
Search your deck for three affiliated character cards with the same name. Reveal them, remove two from the game, and put the rest into your hand.
) Adding her to the mix of things makes this card so much better. You can discard her for the drop you want, or go get the drop you want, and two Mystique’s and throw them away for the card you want. (This also eliminates you drawing her on a later drop when you might need something a little bit better or more powerful.

Another use is Assorted Aliases (To play, discard a character card. Target character gets +3/+3 this attack if it’s a different version of the discarded card.) Which means discard her to get a +3/+3, which is good defense.

Fight or Die! ( Target warbound attacker gets +3 atk this attack.
Boost: Discard a card named hulk: That attacker gets an additional +3 atk this attack.
)

Warbound to The End(To play, discard a character card. Search your deck for a card named hulk. If you control hulk, you may search for any warboundcharacter card instead. Reveal that card and put it into your hand.)

Anger & Hate (To play, remove a secret society character card in your ko’d pile from the game.
Target attacker you control gets +4/+4 this attack if it has the same name as that card.
)

Now, for some character abuse!!!

Wolverine, Bub (Whenever wolverine enters combat, you may discard a card named wolverine. If you do, wolverine gets +3 atk this turn.)

Mastermind Excello (Activate, discard a card named hulk -> draw two cards)

The Purifiers, Army (Discard a card named the purifiers -> target character gets -2 atk or -2 def this attack.)

William Stryker ( At the start of the combat phase, return target card named the purifiers from your ko’d pile to your hand or to play.)

These are a few of her many modern uses/abuses, but either in draft or a sealed deck, having her in your deck has no real downside.
