Faces of Doom
Faces is a key component of the Dr. Doom
deck. It allows you to go and find the Dr.
Doom you need. If you control Doomstadt, you
can even get the first one, Diabolic Genius.
Faces is a must if you are playing the Dr.
Doom deck, and will make each drop run
seemlessly and smoothly. You will be much
less dependent on the luck of the draw, and
that is always a good thing.
In limited, it lacks the constructed synergy
to make this really work. If you are lucky
enough to scoop up multiple Dr. Dooms in
draft, and if you can get a few more
synergetic cards, then it's playable, but for
the most part, it probably isn't going to
Faces of Doom: This
is the Diabolic Tutor of VS. Its insane! There
are many many uses for fishing dooms. Its much
easier to play and probably only played in doom
decks, but what makes it so easy is Doomstat and
Kristof Von Doom, who are considered Dr. Doom.
Now for the uses: 1. Fishes the Dr. Doom you
want for that drop if not in hand, say its 8th
turn, no Dr. Doom, Victor Von Doom in hand, fish
for it and play it. 2. Allows you to fish for a
Dr. Doom to power up your Dr. Doom in play. As i
said before, this card you probably only want to
use in doom deck only, but its a great card for
both getting what you need fast and thinning out
your deck. FOr limited, the cards not as good,
unless you have the bomb Dr. Doom, Lord of
Lavatria and you have Dr. Doom casts. FINAL
RATING: Constructed- 4 Limited- 2
Faces of Doom
When I first saw
this card I had no idea what it was supposed to
do. I hadn’t seen a lot of other Doom cards and
this card seemed pretty useless at first
glimpse. After playing a few games and facing a
couple of Dr. Doom decks I started to see how
powerful and useful this card is. I think this
card can be considered a staple in Doom decks
because it doesn’t matter if you’re playing a
stall variant or an aggressive one….eeeerr…. a
non-Gamma Bomb variant.
This card helps Doom
decks be more consistent, it’s a tutor and makes
it ok for you to run the random Dr. Doom (8) in
your deck. All in all a good card, it only works
in Doom decks but it’s one of the better cards
that affiliation has to offer.
I’m yet to see this
card do anywhere near as well as it does in
constructed. It might be because you need
Doomstadt and Dr. Doom on top of this card. It’s
just not consistent and I don’t recommend
picking any of them up in a draft unless you’re
the only one drafting Doom.
Faces of Doom --
Rounding out this week in really good Doom
cards comes a card that belongs (in a set of
four) in every Doom deck. Do you like Dr.
Doom? In all of his versions? What if you
don't draw him? Don't worry -- it's like
you're playing an extra *FOUR EXTRA COPIES*!
Seriously, the drawback on this card isn't
really a drawback. With quite a few cards
that are worth playing having the added line
"You are considered to control Dr. Doom", you
needn't worry about not having one in play.
The card is reasonably costed, too, so you can
have your Dr. Doom, Diabolic Genius in play on
In conclusion, for constructed play, a) allows
you to search, b) like playing extra copies,
c) no real drawback, and d) reasonable
threshold cost. Just too good.
However, in limited play, unless you have a
lot of Doom characters, this card really isn't
worth playing. Just pass it on to the next

Faces Of Doom
Today we look at a plot twist guaranteed to help
all those doom decks
out there. How so? Easy, if you can’t get your
Dr. Doom characters to
fall correctly then just use this card to get
one out. Since its
threshold cost is 3, you can be sure that your
Dr. Doom – Diabolic
Genius will hit the field by turn four.
This card can even help later on in the game to
get out your Dr. Doom –
Victor Von Doom. The trick is to have Dr. Doom –
Diabolic Genius on
the field first. Next, use the effect of Boris –
Personal Servant of
Dr. Doom to get Faces of Doom, and then play it
straight from your hand
to get your level 6 Dr. Doom on the field (or in
If I was running a doom deck, I would have four
of these cards in it.
Doomstadt is an easy way to be considered to
control Dr. Doom, so I
wouldn’t really worry about this card’s
stipulation. By turn 6, this
card could provide you the icing you need for
Doom constructed deck – 4.5/5.0 ……it allows you
to keep your high level
character ratio down
Limited – 1.0/5.0 …..you really need the Dr.
Doom support in order to
use this card
