Beautiful Dreamer – Forever People

This week we are onto the next group in the Superman line up – New Gods. I have been hearing a lot about New Gods – especially how they are supposed to be the next Doom. That is why the cards I have chosen for this week are not only easy to get (for the most part), but they also incorporate some of the board control aspects that Doom players love.

To start out, let’s look at a card that can help you keep your more valuable characters on the field longer. Of course I am talking about Beautiful Dreamer – Forever People.

As a 2/2 for a 2-drop this card isn’t much to look at on the surface. However her cosmic effect can be pretty useful later on in the game. Beautiful Dreamer’s cosmic effect states that when it becomes stunned, you may recover another stunned character you control. Basically, that means that this character provides you a one-shot deal to help you out in the area of board control. All you have to remember is that you need to hide this character somewhere in your support row so that she doesn’t get stunned first...otherwise your great opportunity will be flushed down the drain. In my opinion this card is better recruited later in the game, on a turn where you do not have the initiative...probably on turn 5. Otherwise, there isn’t much to say about this card.

New Gods constructed deck – 2.0/5.0 ...If it were not for the one-shot deal, I would rate this card higher.

Limited – 2.5/5.0 ...Board control is extremely important in this format. However, you will more than likely end up with a liability on the field during the next turn.

Beautiful Dreamer - Forever People: This week is New Gods week and we start off with a 2 drop named Beautiful Dreamer. I had to spell her name out because beautiful is always one of those words that I tend to misspell.

Nothing too appealing with Beautiful Dreamer, she has average stats for a 2 drop and even though her picture appears that she is flying, she actually does not have Flight or Range. Her Cosmic Power is interesting enough but I really don’t see it making a huge impact and it is very easy to get around by stunning Beautiful Dreamer first.

Constructed: 2/5 – I would much rather use Serifan or Vykin as my New Gods 2 drop than Beautiful Dreamer. Her Power isn’t warranted enough to play her. But who knows maybe someone will find a way to make it useful.

Limited: 3/5 – A little bit better here but there are a handful of 2 drops with a 3 DEF in this set and unless you plan on Team Attacking with your 1 Drop and Beautiful Dreamer shew ont be doing much. Her power does come in handy during draft as most likely you will have only a couple copies or even only a single copy of a character that you really want to keep on the board. Like I said before though all you have to do is stun Beatiful Dreamer 1st and her effect is basically useless.
Beautiful Dreamer - Forever People

This week we're looking at the New Gods, the dirty hippies of Jack Kirby's Fourth World comics. At best, Beautiful Dreamer forces your opponent to play around her effect. They'll want to stun her first, so that she can't use her ability to recover the next one of your characters they stun. If you manage to protect her, she can help you keep some serious board control.
Of course, you'll be doing it at the expense of a lot of endurance, 2/2 isn't going to last long against any deck. You can use her as a one-shot free recovery, or keep bringing her back and using other cards to put another Cosmic counter on her, allowing her to continue recovering your guys. She also works well if you want to run Infinity Man, keeping more Forever People on the board for turn 7.

In Limited, she's a bigger asset. She's not team stamped, so she can bring back any of your guys when she gets stunned. Her size is puny, but most of the time you'll want her to get stunned...just not before your bigger characters do.


Constructed - 2.5/5
Limited - 3.5/5
Paul Hagan Beautiful Dreamer, Forever People --

When I first saw this card, I thought it was really good, but the more I think about it, the less I like Beautiful Dreamer. Don't get me wrong -- there aren't a lot of great options as far as 2-Drops go with regards to the New Gods, so you should probably play this card in a strait-New Gods deck. However, don't expect to get a lot of mileage out of Beautiful Dreamer. If your opponent is a half-way decent player, Beautiful Dreamer will be the first card on their list to ensure that her ability isn't used.

In limited, I'm a lot more likely to play Beautiful Dreamer, especially since she doesn't have loyalty and her ability isn't New Gods specific.
