“Control decks” in MetaX have access a broad spectrum of tactics that aim to restrict (or answer) the opponent’s avenues to victory. This makes Control builds likely to gravitate towards effects like Character removal, MP drain, hand disruption, and deck destruction. While all of these tools have drastically different applications in a given build, they are all capable of serving to promote a general Control strategy (often oriented around the later stages of the game).
The Indigo Tribe is one of the most Control-oriented Traits in the game, and today’s submission from Alan L. incorporates Atom and Iroque to form the backbone of a “copycat” approach:
- Batman – The Caped Crusader x3
- Robin – Carrie Kelley x2
- Atom – Sector 2814 x3
- Iroque – Indigo-1 x3
- Superboy-Prime – Unstoppable x3
- Bizarro – Imperfect Duplicate x2
- 1 Special (C33-JL) x3
- 1 STR/INT (U86-BM) x2
- 2 Intelligence (C38-JL) x3
- 5 INT/SP (R135-JL) x2
- 6 Special (U97-JL) x2
- 6 INT/SP (U99-BM) x3
- 7 Intelligence (U99-JL) x2
“When played” abilities are the most common type of Character effect, and there are countless targets for Atom to exploit. In other matchups, Iroque can disrupt some of the Characters that ignore Atom – or they can be copied by Bizarro! Superboy eases the burden of Indigo requirements while providing additional lockdown, and the Event package combines with Batman/Robin to severely hamper your opponent’s hand (with Robin also acting as yet another flexible effect that can benefit from opposing Characters).
This deck’s elements of negation, hand manipulation, and density of copy effects should catch the opponent off guard – with each game feeling entirely different on your end! Other cards to consider:
- Munk: adds more hand manipulation and redundancy for Iroque/Communion
- Black Hand: even more negation, synergy with Robin
- Diversity: improves consistency/draw power for this rainbow lineup
- BONUS Special Sauce – Mogo: another wonky control effect, can work here when streaming denial of Rank 1 BCs
