Cap off Friday with our Card of the Week, new teasers, and more!
1. Card of the Week
Armin’s relevance in the current environment has developed rapidly, but his effect mandates that you give up many of the glue Battle Cards that add consistency to decks. Beyond making this effect one-sided by eschewing low rank Battle Cards, look to maximize Young Genius in builds that already have their own forms of card advantage/search effects. With three Stats and +4 MP, this is also a Character that effortlessly slides into any lineup.
2. MetaX Around the Web
Head over to MetaXstream to read a young player’s perspective on the GCPD, along with a general series on “top tier” deckbuilding. For your listening pleasure, stay up to date with the MetaManiacs series of podcasts. Finally, get connected with other players on the fan forum of the MetaX TCG Community – and watch for upcoming giveaways and promotions on the official Panini Games Facebook page!
3. Overlooked Cards (…of the Moment)
- Two-Face – Harvey Dent: while he lacks Man of Steel’s Rank 7 Stat, Two-Face compares favorably in every other regard (with the upside of direct damage even outside of Rogues Gallery builds)
- 5 Intelligence (C53-BM): 4 Special and 3 Strength are more conducive to aggro strategies that want “fast attacks,” but this more calculated effect has massive potential in INT based decks (led by The Dark Knight)
- Captain Levi – Juggernaut: the type of effect that becomes more powerful with each new release, but even now has devastating applications when paired with Robin and a large Event kit
4. Teasers for Tomorrow
Dream big over the weekend with a look at three new effects, each of which will be seen in the next set:
- a Character that receives a big bonus for a relative being in play
- an Event that can reduce the cost of other Events
- a Battle Card that automatically gains a VP if a certain condition is met in your discard pile
