Today we are going to look at a real power house for Brotherhood deck out there.


Post is the second biggest 5-drop in the game at 10/10.  He also gains +2 defense when defending.  What is not to love about this card? 


Well one thing not to love is his cost of having to stun a Brotherhood character when he comes into play.  I am not sure I like the idea of stunning one of my characters and taking endurance loss, just so I can have one more attack than many of the 5-drops out there.  I definitely wouldn’t put this guy into a deck if I knew I was going to go up against Thing-Heavy Hitter.


Actually it is kind of hard to know what kind of a deck Post belongs in.  He doesn’t fit into a Brotherhood variation deck well, nor does he belong in a lost Avalon deck.  He doesn’t go into new brotherhood either.  I guess we will have to see where this guy ends up….



Constructed – 3.0/5.0 ….This is a good character…with a steep price.

Limited – 1.0/5.0 ….This is going to be a hard card to play with in this format.

Post, Kevin Tremain – Another beast for the Brotherhood team. Just when you thought it was safe when you stunned Feral Rage Sabretooth on Turn 4. Bang here comes Post on Turn 5. At 10/10 or 10/12 if you don’t have initiative. Post is definately a force that needs to be reckoned with. Especially since he served under Onslaught to fight Cyclops, Iceman, Storm, and Wolverine.

The only downside is that you need to stun a Brotherhood character you control when Post comes into play. Didn’t need that Mystique anymore then stun her or maybe Quicksilver. You see it is not that much of a downside to stun one of your weenies to send Post out into battle.

Constructed: 4/5 – Post is just that good. Expect to see him in a lot of Brotherhood or Mutant Nation build decks that will see a major comeback due to the Web of Spiderman set.

Limited: 3/5 – A lot harder to pull off here as there are only 3 Brotherhood characters in Web of Spiderman. But if you can manage to get a 1 drop Thornn and keep her alive until turn 5 and send out Post, then there is not much that your opponent can do to stop Post on Turn 5. As Post has the largest DEF of all 5 drops at 12 when you don’t have initiative.

If you play Brotherhood, you're probably running one of two decks: The New Brotherhood, or Big Brotherhood.
TNB uses 5 drop Magneto in order to play Genosha, draw 4 cards, and still get the TNB bonus. Big Brotherhood uses Quicksilver for multiple attacks and board control. Neither deck has room for post, the new 5 drop on the block. 10/10 is pretty impressive, and the extra +2 DEF when defending means that he can even survive a shot from Thing, Heavy Hitter.
However, stunning one of your own Brotherhood guys is just too steep. The 1-4 points of endurance are negligible, but for giving up field advantage, I'd expect a little better than this. Its not worth mucking up the tried and tested Brotherhood builds that have been making Top 8's since the game was released.

In Limited, he's a mixed bag. In a pure WSM event, you won't be seeing Magneto and Quicksilver, so a 5 drop of his size would be nice to pull. On the other hand, there's only two other Brotherhood characters in this set, and one of them is a 6 drop. This makes Post virtually unplayable in this format. In MSM/WSM, you'll see a lot of common Brotherhood, that's about the only situation in which you'd want to keep this guy.

Constructed - 2/5
Limited - 1/5
Without Victory, there is no survival...
