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

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….

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

Stall out!

Posted by blantern on August 3, 2009

Due to a very random error, we ended up not having this weeks HL or the Saturday Post/Mock/ or 2nd HL. Very odd. I tweeked Doom to some close form of perfection. Plus kitted out a Quicksilver Deck. I game him one good team up (wpds finest) and went Brotherhood / Inhumans with a small avengers splash. The focus was to put a Nth Metal on the 4,5,6 drops and pop at people! I did good, but I haven’t began to shave off the fat, plu no pathetic attempts means everyone can go ape sh*t crazy with effects. I love off-curve attacking. Pretty crazy if I do say so myself, but who knows when I deck-tech it all the way

Clone Saga Golden Update! Doom Vs Iron Man

Posted by blantern on August 2, 2009

Dr.doom vs Iron man, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen such a matchup and it most certanly won’t be the last. Dr.doom has een my main clone saga choice for a while, and with this format it seems only natural to use him. The “lock” on 6 drop shuts down almost everything…save iron man. Well, I have a pro defense deck. That is my nature, that’s how I think. During some play tests, I’ve been able to stall out until 6, with 2 bitter rivals, and pick them off with Planet weapon. I know, stall, burn, smack is kind of a cowards way, but hey, it’s the good Dr! But I never antcipated how powerful Iron Man is. Aside from an absurd amount of search, (2nd only to Mr.Fantastic) he can miss his 6 drop in favor of his 5, and all his drops are Omnipitence proof. If you ignore his draw finesse, the fact that you have a 3 drop attacker, is pure problems. Well, long story short, Doom would be locked Aldo by iron idiot on 6 if he had 2 of his ultimate out there with the 4 drop recovering him, plus only the new doom has flight so all I could do was put down 2 of his characters and he’d just recover his entire field. The key to winning this will of minds lies in diplomatic immunity, along with a cover fire with 5 drop doom. I was able to dupe him into playng a plot twist early on, and I stalled out until 7, where I recruted the attacking 6 drop doom from MUN, so I began to pick on his 4 and 5 drops while the 3,4, & 6 watched safely from the hidden area providing cover fire support. Then on the 8 drop I turned down all my stall cards and waiting on his set up. Thanks to a black box, 7 drop Iron Man wasn’t getting stunned, after exhausting all the big drops and a cover later I picked on his people. I used a combination of messiah complex along with 8 drop doom to keep them exhausted then just waited on planet weapon for the win.

Iron Man golden clone saga single character

Posted by blantern on July 30, 2009

Iron Man Iron Man Iron Man. Ohh how tough it is to construct thee, actually I have a plan, a darn good one if I say so myself. I figured with only 2 3drops, 2 4 drops, 1 5,6, & 7, what can you do to make him a contender? The answer….. ALOT!!! The main thing is speed speed speed to get your combo’s flowing. At first, I wasn’t gonna risk it, but after actually taking apart my BYOS MUN S.H.I.E.L.D. Going No More Mr. Nice Guy makes some sense. I will put a heavy amount of search into the deck. Secret governments Avengers Assemble!, Avengers Re-Assemble!, Uncertain Legacys, we can rebuild him., black boxes for equips, covet fires, beatdowns, only humans, the deck is a real fighter. Well it’s about 65% done, but I will have the rest later on, and I will playtest till the cows come home!!!!
