VS2PCG The Marvel Battles Base Set

The age old question in card games is whether it is more beneficial to play first or draw first. Due to the differences in certain games and how decks work, it can be advantageous to do one or the other by getting more cards or having some sort of handicap for playing first.

Thanos Main Character Level 1

Thanos is the boogeyman of the format. There are a few different ways to build him and each have their advantages and disadvantages. Regardless of the build, he is usually a force to be reckoned with. Often players talk about him needing a ban, but recently a few more decks have been able to fairly consistently take down "The Mad Titan". With all of these new decks running around, is the mad titan still relevant and a powerhouse? Yes he is.

Today we will look at an alternate build for Thanos, a combo version that was inspired by a post in the VS 2PCG Collective on Facebook. Others have taken to the deck and made their own unique changes to the Glass Cannon shell posted and I will share a sturdier more consistent shell, yet usually a little more cautious version with some consistency over the explosiveness of other posted versions. It has some advantages and disadvantages over normal Thanos Lists. First, let's take a look at "The Mad Titan" and what he is all about.

Even the Odds

Updated 12-23-16

Even the Odds is a powerful and versatile card that and sees play in many decks. However due to the card's wording and how it interacts with other cards, it can be very confusing at first glance. We will take a look at what it does and doesn't do.

VS2PCG The Marvel Battles Base Set

Over the next few articles I am going to take a look at all of the plot twists released to date and describe why they are useful (or not) and some plays and situations in which they are optimal. The first article will be the generic plot twists from Marvel Battles. There has been 1 generic per team affiliation so far, so as new sets are released the total number will only get larger.

Generic plot twists can be played with any combination of characters on your side, so they are always more versatile than team plot twists. Thus on average they are slightly less powerful than their team plot twist comparisons. Every deck needs at least some generics, though, and so knowing which ones compliment which decks will help when building and playing.

Luke Cage Main Character Level 1

When looking at the defenders spoilers, one thing certainly stood out to me and I've been a fan of it since the hour it was spoiled: Luke Cage Main Character. After testing him in over 50 games, some even before the set was released, he has always stood out as potentially the best MC in the game. That's right; you didn't read the caveat of "except Thanos" or "with Thanos banned".

Stats

Starting with 4 power at level 1 is amazing. You can attack many MC's your first turn with no help from a team attack or plot twist. Many other MC's won't even stun you back if you do this. I think that LC might even be broken in this regard, because you can play no cards at all and force some other MC's (Magneto, Prof X, Green Goblin, ect) to defend themselves from turn 1. Nothing looks more unfair than having a massive hand and still having the opponent spending cards or taking wounds. 3 defense is a slight liability, but as you will see below in the Super Powers section, one that he covers pretty nicely.

Level 2, Luke is a 6/6. This is pretty standard, nothing too exciting about this. As you will read in the Level Up section, the fact that you get here on turn 3 is good, and it's a solid base for team attacks.
