Barbara Gordon <> Batgirl - Guardian of Gotham

Today we are going to move onto a slightly more useful card for a GK deck - Barbara Gordon - Batgirl

Ok..before I begin this review, let me say just one thing...this card should only be considered in a mono - Gotham Knights deck that is centered around Wayne Enterprises. Otherwise, stay away from this card and keep your deck focused on more worthy GK cards. Do not put this card into a BB deck. If you do and it doesn't work then I told you so!

Whew! Sorry about that. I guess you could say I am not a big fan of this card. Anyways....Barbara Gordon is a decent card from the new set for the GK decks. As a 4/4 3-drop, this card is definately on par. She also has a really good effect, provided you have set up your deck accordingly so that you can take full advantage of it. This card's effect basically states that if an equipped GK character stuns an opponent's character then you get to draw a card. The big thing to notice is that this card does not state whether your opponent's character has to be an attacker or defender. That definately makes this card more appealing. However, don't be tempted to just throw some equipment into the latest version of you GK deck and four of these cards. Adding equipment to a GK deck can be very tricky since you have to make room for it and usually you will end up cutting some useful plot twists in the process. It is pretty much out of the question for a BB deck....

GK constructed deck - 3.0/5.0 ...However, in a deck centered around Wayne Enterprises this card is a must!

Limited - 1.0/5.0 ...It is hard enough getting another GK character in this format, much less an equipped one, and her stats by themselves are only average.

Barbara Gordon <> Batgirl - 1of the newest GK 3 drop in this set. Here you see is the original Batgirl, Barbara Gordon. Yes she is Commissioner Gordon’s daughter. VS. players are more familiar with her adult version of Oracle . Here is her youthful version prior to getting paralyzed by The Joker.

You have an average 4/4 for this 3 drop without flight or range. Her power is that whenever your equipped GK character stuns an opponents character you get to draw a card.

Constructed: 2/5 - You probably want to be playing Batman as your 3 drop in this format, however this card does add to the GK theme of draw power but it wont be enough draw power to justify Batgirl as your 3 drop.

Limited: 1/5 – With such limited GK characters available her power will be useless. Her stats are avg for 3 drop and you probably want someone with the same team affiliation as the team you are building.
Barbara Gordon <> Batgirl, Guardian of Gotham

Barbara Gordon has decent stats, but an effect that's going to be fairly tough to pull off. Equipment still isn't that popular in VS outside of a couple of specialized decks. Granted, Gotham Knights has a nice piece of 0 cost equipment in Utility Belt, if you don't mind sacrificing the space in your deck.
Considering the extra card draw you'll get from a successful use of her effect, it might just be worth it. Other than Batman, there aren't a lot of great 3 drops for GK, so putting her in and keeping her around for her effect might just work in a straight GK build.

In Limited, there aren't enough Gotham Knights to really get much mileage out of her effect, but with Metropolis showing up in a lot of packs, you might take a flyer on her, if you're a gambling type. Her stats aren't that special though, take her near the end of the pack.


Constructed - 3/5
Limited - 2/5
Without Victory, there is no survival...
