See another Top Cut list from Gen Con below.
This week’s Deck Tech continues our Gen Con coverage with Phil M’s Top 4 “Incredible Aggro” build. Phil is a MetaX developer, and his usage of Black Lanterns adds a real kick to this offensive juggernaut:
- The Joker – Unpredictable x3
- Batman – Dark Knight x3
- Batman – Reanimated x1
- Black Hand – William Hand x3
- Green Arrow – Hand of Death x3
- Harley Quinn – Dr. Harleen Quinzel x1
- 1 Special (C33-JL) x3
- 2 Strength (C37-JL) x3
- 2 Intelligence (C38-JL) x3
- 2 Special (R128-JL) x2
- 2 Special (C39-JL) x1
- 3 Intelligence (R129-JL) x2
- 4 Special (C49-JL) x2
- 7 Intelligence (U99-JL) x2
Phil describes the concept as an aggro deck that is “still capable of winning after the opponent has gained control of the board.” As a perfect complement to the early VP pressure from Joker and Batman, “reach” effects like Harley Quinn and 7 Intelligence allowed Phil to finish off wins in quick fashion (or sneak through a comeback victory)! The Darkness Grows was mentioned as the clear MVP of the deck, as it often “surprised opponents for 3-5 VP in a single turn out of nowhere.” The deck’s lack of significant card advantage can cause issues against hand destruction (either GCPD or Vixen), and Hero Control is a natural counter with Constantine and Wonder Woman – Amazon Princess.
Congratulations to Phil for the top 4 finish, and check back next week for a look at another Top Cut list from Gen Con!
