Today we are going to end the week with a look
at a common piece of equipment that is seeing
more play now that we have MA format.
Jetpack basically gives your character +2 attack
and flight. If you are going to give your
character a boost, this is probably one of the
best ways to do it. After all, we have all
learned from the massive amounts of sentinel
decks out there, just how powerful flight can be
(not to mention this equipment is FREE).
Basically there will no longer be a place for
your opponent to hide (except maybe the
concealed area). That is not bad in my book
(flight is always better than range imo). Really
the only draw back to this card that there are
cards out there more favored simply due to the
fact that they provide for more characters..or
they give defense. Still, I would choose this
over many cards out there right now. After all,
a boost is still a boost.
MA constructed - 4.0/5.0 ...This card isn't team
specific and provides some very nice abilities
GA constructed - 3.5/5.0 ...Equipment in general
doesn't quite make the cut in this format...but
hey, if you want to have a 64 card deck, then
throw this card in.
Limited - 5.0/5.0 ...Flight and a free boost?
What more could you ask for in this format?!?
Ahh Jetpack. If you're anything like me, you
could wallpaper your room with Jetpacks, but it
should be seeing a surprising amount of play
this weekend. The
+2 boost is nice for your smaller characters,
there aren't that many characters with flight in
Modern Age. It's free, and not team stamped, so
any build will benefit from it. Not much else to
say, if you can spare the space for it, go for
In Limited, you'll see a copy or two, and
there's no harm in running a couple of copies.
Flight is always nice, especially when your
opponent has already parked a small guy in the
