Welcome back to the Blog Division. Agent 44 here giving you my look at the newest organized play format for our beloved card addiction. Turns out the geniuses (and I use that term loosely) at UDE decided that uniqueness was outdated and turned all us crazy card flippers loose. Now to curb one train of thought that I have already dealt with this lack of uniqueness only applies to characters so you can’t flip up two of the new Doomstadt’s and expect every one of your non-unique Dooms to get +6 ATK. This one hurdle passed there are many characters in the silver age capable of abusing this format. The aforementioned Doom jumps to mind but also Spidey, the Fantastic Five or more, Captain America, Supes and Bats, and I don’t even want to think about Wolverine. On the bad guy side of things you have Darkseid, Quiksilver and I’m sure there are more but I don’t use the evil guys so…anyways here’s what I came up with:
My original plan as hinted at in the previous post was to run an Outsiders/Titans build someone somewhere affectionately labeled Emo Kids. The deck was a blast to play, spamming out upwards of three characters a turn and not letting the opponent recover anyone. The only complicated thing was that with so many one and two drops you had to be careful not to recruit someone you already had out. Obviously clone saga rules would help out in this respect. I was all set to play this deck when I remembered that our good friend from Tier 2 Tutor, Omar was going to play a Torch and Thing deck and I didn’t want all my weenies being burned to a crisp. I realize having this unfair advantage may not be the most sporting in nature but I’d like to win every once in a while so I moved on. My next build centered around my favorite hero of all time: Christian Bale…I mean Batman! With a bit of support I could drop Bats at 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 with lots of negation and other good stuff. Unfortunately this deck suffered from a problem I frequently deal with: although my deck was consistent and effective, it had no real win condition. Just dropping a bigger character wasn’t always enough to win especially if the opponent had something bigger so I went back to the drawing board. As unimaginative as I am I decided to use that same skeleton from my last decklist post and run with it. I present Cloned Super Bat He-B!tches (the name could use a little work but I didn’t want to just call it World’s Finest):
3x Tim Drake^Robin, Titan in Command
3x Krypto, Earth’s Best Friend
4x Barbara Gordon^Oracle, Hacker Elite
1x Batman, Problem Solver
3x Superman, Last Son of Krypton
2x Batman, Twilight Vigilante
1x Superman, Metropolis Marvel
1x Wonder Woman, Deflection Diva
1x Superman, Man of Tomorrow
1x Kate Kane^Batwoman, Katherine the Younger
1x Pyrogen, Supermen of America
2x Batman, Cape and Cowl
1x Barbara Gordon^Oracle, Inside Information
1x Kara Zor-El^Supergirl, Female Fury
1x Batman, Dark Knight Returned
1x Superman, Bulletproof
2x Superman/Batman Robot, Supa-Mecha-Bat
4x The Hook-Up, Team-Up
4x Bat Got Your Tongue?
4x Flying High
3x Have a Blast!
1x Uncertain Legacy
1x For the Man Who Has Everything
1x Heroes of Two Worlds
1x At Their Finest
1x From the Darkness
2x City of Tomorrow, Team-Up
There you go! Thats the list I will be playing tomorrow at our local Hobby League. Despite my own lack of creativity I think it will do well. I realize that for those who I have played frequently this deck will not be too much of a stretch from what I usually play but I think it may still surprise. As far as playing the deck goes I don’t think World’s Finest needs much instruction but my deck is a bit different. I’ve found that the 5 drop is usually my toolbox spot. Assuming I haven’t lost yet I can usually tell what my opponent is playing and then get the character that best addresses the situation. Probably my favorite play is throwing out the Super/Bat Robot as a 10/10 invulnerable beatstick. Good times!
Well thats all for tonight everyone. Good luck in the Clone Wars (HAHA bad Star Wars reference)! Keep on keeping on and hopefully you’ll read me soon.
P.S.: To anyone reading this (all 3 of you) I could use a little assistance figuring out how to put pretty pictures all over my work. Thanks for the help!!
