Bizzaro – Imperfect Duplicate

It is week 3 and this week we are moving onto Revenge Squad. For this week I have chosen all rares, but don’t be too discouraged. I chose cards that fit the category of a good situational card. First up for the team is Bizzaro – Imperfect Duplicate.

On the surface Bizzaro looks a lot like a Mr. Fantastic or a Killer Croc. He is a 7/10 for a 5-drop, which means that this guy was built for defense. However, with flight and range, this character already appears a little more promising when it comes to having the initiative. This guy has a really great effect, which definitely makes him stand out from other RS characters. By discarding a Revenge Squad character card from your hand, you can switch this character’s attack and defense. Now that’s versatility! If there is one thing I love in any card game it is versatility. There really is never a time when you wouldn’t want to recruit this character on turn 5.

In most decks (mine included) you tend to have two different characters for each drop. One character is used for cases when you have initiative at a particular drop and the other is for when you do not. This allows you to be more consistent in your games and helps to curtail significant BEL. Now if you are like me (and have no luck) then you tend to get the wrong character for your drop. However, this character tends to help fix that. Now, if I really need to take out an opponent’s character all I have to do is discard a RS character and voila! No more weak 5-drop. Also, if I do not have initiative and I know that I am going to get stunned anyway, I will definitely use this character’s effect to try to stun my opponent’s character back. Hey, if I am going down, I am taking my opponent with me. In a dog-eat-dog game it is always nice to have a trick or two up your sleeve.

RS constructed deck – 4.0/5.0 ...As far 5-drop RS characters go this and Mongul should make it into your deck.

Limited – 3.0/5.0 ...You will probably not have enough RS characters to make Bizzaro’s effect work, but he still provides a nice wall.
Bizzaro - Imperfect Duplicate

Me am liking Bizarro. 7/10 for a 5 drop is decent, and 10/7 for a 5 drop is decent. Having the ability to choose which he is is very decent. Discarding a character is a little steep, but his versatility makes him a must-have for anybody running Revenge Squad.
Flight and range lets him pick his targets, and if you have the initiative on turn 5, you can easily knock off one of your opponent's characters, then have Bizarro sit back and act as a wall for the rest of your guys. Mongul is still a little better 5 drop, which one you play will depend on your situation at the time. Also, the backwards printing is a good sign that the sense of fun is alive and kicking at UDE.
(Speaking of fun, check out the effect of Bizarro

In Limited, his team stamped ability can get in the way, and Mongul becomes a much better pick at 5 thanks to his Boost ability. Still, characters with both flight and range are nothing to sneeze at, so Bizarro is definitely a draftable rare.


Constructed - 3/5
Limited - 3/5
Without Victory, there is no survival...
