I kinda don't want to say anything about this card.  The player in me doesn't want to divulge tech.  But the writer in me says, "Tell the masses - tell them how amazing this card is."  Okay...first a judge lesson:
Summarizing, you have two types of creatures:  Affiliated and Non-affiliated.  Affiliated means having any affliation, such as Fantastic Four, Gotham Knight, or Skrull.  Non-affliated means having none of these.  So, no one go off and say, "well, it's only good in the mirror....."  No, it's not. 
The non-affiliated deck is good.  That's all I will say...for now.  I will have an article in the future on this subject. :)  Arcade and Mojo both have their worlds' in it, and you CAN play affiliated characters (some) and still be good.
Limited, it's not very good at all.  It becomes a shoot down crap shoot with Friends and Syndicate blasting each other all over the place.  It's downright bad in limited.
Constructed: 5 (if you don't beleive me now, watch and see)
Limited: 1.5






Today we are going to look at a card that definitely promotes bad hand management as a great idea.  This card is definitely not for everyone, but I could definitely see this card is a really annoying casual weenie rush deck.  If you put it into a deck that is running Longshot successfully and you don’t mind getting rid of those excess army characters that you tend to build up in your hand, then fear not – this card was made for you!   Otherwise, you may want to hold off putting this card in your competitive deck.



Casual weenie deck – 3.5/5.0 ….This card could definitely help rush decks control the field in the late game.


Limited – 2.5/5.0 ….Bad hand management is never a good thing in a limited playing field, but this card would be a lot of fun to play anyways!

Murderworld - Similar to Finishing Move except for the fact that it is a location, your characters have to Activate, you have to choose a stunned affiliated character, and you get to discard any card from your hand. Also, Murder World can only be flipped during the build phase and you have to discard a card from your hand. After looking at all of those requirements I think I would rather play Finishing Move.

MSM brings us a lot of help for those of us that like the non-team affiliated teams and Murder World further helps those non-affiliated teams.

Constructed: 3/5 – If your theme of the deck is to ko stunned characters than this card is definitely for you. Along with Finishing Move, Charaxes and some other combos you could make a decent KO their stunned characters theme deck.

Limited: 3/5 – Pretty decent here as there are not many multiple characters available in draft. All you have to do is KO one of your opponents main character in draft and that’s all she wrote.
Without Victory, there is no survival...
