Spoiler<>Robin - The Girl Wonder

Let me begin this week by saying that I hope everyone had a really great Christmas holiday. Well it looks like this week we are going to review some of the new cards that came out for Gotham Knights. To begin, let's take a look at the new Spoiler.

For anyone running a GK deck or BB deck, you already know that the new cards released for GK and TT do not have enough impact to make it into your already constructed decks. Case in point - Spoiler. Spoiler is a new 2-drop making the scene. However as a 2/2 2-drop, this girl doesn't quite make the cut in my decks. She has a decent effect (You can activate Spoiler to give target GK defender a +X attack this attack, where X is the cost of the defender.) however you have to keep in mind that using her effect will probably cost you in BEL since she can no longer reinforce anyone. Personally I don't see her replacing the standard Robin or even Barbara Gordon for that matter in a GK deck, much less a Donna Troy or Tim Drake in BB deck, but hey if you can make this card work then more power to you.

GK constructed deck - 2.5/5.0 ...This card gets an even lower rating in a BB deck.

Limited - 1.5/5.0 ...She does have evasion which keeps me from disregarding her completely, but with such low stats I am not even sure evasion can make up for this card.
Spoiler <> Robin, The Girl Wonder

This week we're doing two things: welcoming DawnYoshi to the COTD team and taking a look at the new Gotham Knights cards from the new Superman set.

I honestly don't know why GK isn't making an appearance in more decks. They've got the search power of Alfred, the mother of all Plot Twists in Fizzle, and a card specifically to team them up with Teen Titans. This week's cards just may help Gotham Knights see their way into a few more Top 8 winning decks.

When first looking at today's card, you may feel a little deja vu. Spoiler is to defensive turns as Tim Drake is to your offensive turns. In later turns, she's a walking Nasty Surprise, especially in situations where your opponent will be trying to attack your lower cost character with their more powerful ones. She's a nice 4/2 on defense with her ability, and you can always just use her Evasion to keep her around for later turns.

Still, it's tough to put her in over Tim Drake, especially if you run the 1 drop Spoiler for the endurance gain. She's a good utility card for games where you have odd initiative, or if you really want to power up your Spoiler.

In Limited, there aren't many Gotham Knights to use her ability on, so I'd just pass her along. 2/2 is small, she doesn't have flight or range, and there isn't anything else in the set that will really benefit from her ability.


Constructed - 2.5/5
Limited - 1/5
Without Victory, there is no survival...
