This is the early hot card from the set. If X-men turn out to be as good now as everyone says, this card is ridiculous. This plus Ultimate Sacrifce make it absolutely stupid. Being able to swing at will without fear of stun really makes a game work in your favor. X-men should play 3-4 of these. Will generally only need 1-2 a game, but that will be enough.

Limited it sucks completely - not nearly enough X-men.

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 1





Today we are looking at the hottest card in the new set – BAMF!  There is a reason this card is going for $20 - $30 each.  In my opinion this card is better than Savage Beatdown for any X-men or X-men version deck.  If you can get your hand on four of these cards it is either time to cash in or make an X-men deck.  When you activate this card X-men ALL X-men characters you control can not be stunned while attacking this term.  This card is a major reason Mutant Nation decks are going to storm the metagame scene.  Need I say more?



X-men constructed deck – 5.0/5.0 …..Got initiative?


Limited – 5.0/5.0 …..Even if you only get a couple of X-men characters, keep this card…it is well worth it!

Bamf! – The pic on this card reminds me of the great scene in the movie X-Men 2 when Nightcrawler is Bamfing! through the White House to get to the President. Boy was that a great scene or what? Nightcrawler is easily one of my favorite characters. Who doesn’t love a fuzzy little blue Elf?

Anyway on to the review of Bamf! It is a plot twist with a cost of 3 and while attacking this turn your X-men characters cannot be stunned. Sounds a little like Dynamic Duo for the DC side, except that one is ongoing. Like I said in another one of my reviews, MSM also packs a lot of love for X-men. Expect this card to be a staple in any X-men themed deck. The card is currently going for Fizzle like dollars on E-bay right now.

Constructed: 4/5 – The ability to attack without being stunned is just too good. It is specific to X-Men team though. But there are plenty of X-men Team up Plot twists you could use if you don’t want to run straight X-men.

Limited: 3/5 – A little more difficult here to use. As it is only a 1-shot effect and the chances of pulling more than 1 is unlikely.
X-Men have really needed some help to become a Tier 1 deck, and this card goes a long way towards that.
X-Men already have a couple characters that don't stun while attacking, but Bamf! gives you a lot more freedom with your attacks, especially on turns when you have initiative. Its a nice effect, and it may sucker a few more people into playing X-Men. It gives great board advantage, and there's a Teen Titans/X-Men deck out there that loves to use this with Teen Titans Go! for some major hurting.

In Limited, it depends on the format. There aren't too many X-Men in MSM, but it'd be great in a MSM/MOR event. However, you'd be better off leaving this for the rare drafter and just looking for a more playable card.


Constructed - 3/5
Limited - 1.5/5
Without Victory, there is no survival...
