Batman Deck Tech 8: Police Lock

This week’s Deck Tech revolves around the Military Police!

Decks based around the Military Police Trait bring several things to mind – filtering, recursion, and the KO effect of Annie. Today’s submission from Blaine B. emphasizes all of these strengths with a build based around dominating the Character Zone. Blaine considers this a top contender for the current metagame, and he writes:

“The concept of this deck is pretty straightforward – I utilize my resources to dig for Annie + one of the six board wipes.”

Characters:

Events:

Battle Cards:

The combination of Showdown and Unexpected Turnaround can consistently setup scenarios for Annie to clear the opponent’s only Character. When combined with fast attacks from 4 Special, this leads to several “free VPs” that the opponent cannot defend. This has been proven as an effective strategy, as seen in the Military Police deck from Gen Con’s $2k. With two copies of Discipline to compliment Nile Dawk, this list can afford to cheat on Character slots – but it might still require a few more. Other cards to consider:

  • Green Arrow – Hand of Death – while not a member of the Military Police, this “1 for 1” removal effect is in sync with strategies that work for Annie
  • Teleportation – packs less punch than Unexpected Turnaround, but comes at a significantly reduced cost
  • More Battle Cards that reward that benefit from “free shots” (such as more copies of 1 STR/INT/SP, or effects like 1 Intelligence and 1 Special)

Blaine also included a photo of his deck from the MetaX Deck Builder.
