Before delving into today’s Deck Tech submission, it’s important to remember that deck-building in MetaX is all about your personal preference and style of play. You’ll always be able to begin a deck by choosing an archetype (ranging from broad concepts to specific combos), and then finding numerous cards that support your strategy. At the same time, you also have the freedom to simply choose some specific cards (such as a favorite Character!) and build up from there.
Either way, you’re likely to end up with far more card candidates than 40 card deck limit. In fact, you’ll often find that the 50th or 60th card added to a potential list is just as playable as the 40th…or the first! Even within a heavily Trait-based build, there are countless permutations – let alone the infinite possibilities opened up by an ever expanding pool of crossover decks!
This deck submitted by Chris L. serves as an example of the diverging paths available to a Trait stamped build.
- Saint Walker – Bro’Dee Walker x3
- Kyle Rayner – Beacon Of Hope x3
- Saint Walker – Power Of Hope x1
- Warth – Brother Warth x2
- Saint Walker – The First Blue Lantern x3
- Green Lantern – Green Gladiator x3
- 3 Intelligence (C45-GL) x2
- 3 Special (S54-JL) x2
- 4 Special (S35-JL) x1
- 4 Special (C54-GL) x2
- 4 STR/INT/SP (U94-JL) x2
- 5 Special (S17-JL) x1
- 5 Special (U99-GL) x2
- 5 STR/SP (R134-JL) x2
- 6 Special (S70-JL) x1
- 6 Special (U97-JL) x1
- 6 STR/INT/SP (R139-GL) x2
While deck ratios will always be fluid, beginning players can follow a general guideline of 14-16 Characters, 8-10 Events, and 14-18 Battle Cards.
This stable Blue Lantern list aims to excel in the Battle Step, and its card advantage/searching effects lead to a high degree of consistency. Warth aside, the Battle Card distribution is nicely accessible for the included Characters. Blue Lantern decks tend to have a top heavy Rank average for BCs, as they can ignore some of the more potent effects of Rank 1 and Rank 2 Battle Cards in order to fit more Basic Battle Cards.
Other cards to consider:
- a third copy of Hope Burns Bright
- another toolbox Character to search out, such as Green Lantern – Sinestro
- two to three additional answers (beyond In Raging Night) to problematic Characters, such as Power Players or Knockout
