As a final precursor to the unveiling of Green Lantern, let’s take a quick look at the three remaining factions: Star Sapphires, Orange Lanterns, and the Indigo Tribe! You can find previous rundowns here: Black Lanterns, Red/White Lanterns, Sinestro Corps/Blue Lanterns, and Green Lanterns.

Star Sapphires wield violet power rings, which embody the power of love. This faction is able to do a little bit of everything, and there are four Star Sapphire Character cards in the next set:

  • Wonder Woman – Ambassador of Peace
  • Star Sapphire – Violet Lantern
  • Star Sapphire – Carol Ferris
  • Carol Ferris – Queen of the Star Sapphires

Aside from a potent Special 6 Battle Card, Star Sapphires also have access to two of the flashiest Event cards in the game:

  • Love Conquers All
  • Join Our Fight

Meanwhile, orange power rings are fueled by avarice – and the “Orange Lanterns” essentially revolve around a lone Character – Larfleeze!

  • Larfleeze – Orange God
  • Larfleeze – Powered by Avarice
  • Agent Orange – Ogatoo Thief
  • Hal Jordan – Insatiable Greed

In MetaX, Orange Lantern stamped cards offer a variety of “greedy” effects, including options that both limit the opponent or gain more resources for yourself. This is reflected in both Orange Lantern Event cards:

  • What’s Mine is Mine
  • Not Yours!

Also be on the lookout for Orange Lantern interactions with Battle Cards, including a Strength 2 and Intelligence 5!

Finally, the mysterious Indigo Tribe is powered by compassion, and their four Character cards offer a wide variety of unusual effects:

  • Iroque – Compassionate Leader
  • Iroque – Indigo-1
  • Munk – Indigo-2
  • Atom – Sector 2814

The Indigo Tribe also has a theme of VP Pile manipulation, as seen in their Event card “Communion” or the stamped Intelligence 4 Battle Card.

Be sure to check back on Tuesday for more coverage from Green Lantern!
