Sith Dragon Marvel's Most Wanted
plot twist

As an additional cost to play Marvel's Most Wanted discard two Thunderbolts characters.

Search your deck for a marvel card. Reveal it, put it in your hand and shuffle your deck.

HERE WE GO! its time to hit the newest Vs set - the Avengers! I have yet to see a full list of cards for this set, but the ones I have seen are going to make this a fun and interesting set. So on to our card.

This is a card that could really see some heavy play.
This is a 4 cost plot twist. I have yet to see a plot twist ruined by a high cost, and this one is no exception. The cost of discarding 2 thunderbolt character cards can be a bit high, but by turn four you hopefully you will have a couple duplicate characters or low cost characters that wont see play to soften the cost of discarding 2 cards. If you had to play this before turn 4 you are in trouble anyway.

Normally discarding 2 cards to go get a card is horrible hand management as you just used 3 cards to go get one! However, the effect of this card is so versatile it may be worth it. You can go get a Marvel card whether it is a character, plot twist or location. It just has to be a marvel card and not DC.

This card will see heavy play at first. We shall have to see if it lasts, but definitely try this card if you are running thunderbolts.

"Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"

We want all your Marvel...

Marvel's Most Wanted
Number: MAV-115
Rarity: Rare
Card Type: Plot Twist
Cost: 4
Ongoing: No
As an additional cost to play Marvel's Most Wanted, discard two Thunderbolts character cards.

Search your deck for a Marvel card, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck. (A Marvel card has the Marvel logo in the upper right-hand corner.)

Cost: 4
An effect this powerful needs to be this costly.

Ongoing: No
Thankfully for your opponent.

Ouch! Heavy and restrictive cost, but well worth it as you can get any Marvel card you want, be it character, Plot Twist, Location or Equipment.

Team Affiliation: Thunderbolts.
Still don't know enough about the team to say anything.

The ability to search for any card (as long as it's a Marvel
card) is incredible, but the cost makes sure you'll only use it in a Thunderbolts or 2-team deck.

Modern Age:
If you run a Thunderbolts deck, use it, if not, don't.

Golden Age:
Not usable here, but worthy of...

Thunderbolts characters should be obtainable here, so take it if you see enough Thunderbolts to support using it.

scyther8 "The name says it all."

Welcome to the start of the Avenger reviews! I've picked the cards for the next few weeks, hoping to highlight some of the definite winners of the set you yourself should try to get. This week is Thunderbolts week, a team I've liked ever since the spoiler was released during the Sneak Peek. Not to mention, their actual premise as a storyline in the Marvel universe is truly unique to say the least. Onto the review!

Marvel's Most Wanted (MMW)
Plot Twist
4 Threshold Cost
Rarity: Rare

Effect: As an additional cost to play Marvel's Most Wanted, discard two Thunderbolts character cards. Search your deck for a Marvel card, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck. (A Marvel card has the Marvel logo in the upper right-hand corner.)

Initative Preference: None

First of all, the cost of MMW is not cheap. Discarding two cards, let alone they both have to be character cards from a specific team affiliation makes this card almost impossible to splash in any deck that does not have a Thunderbolts theme/sub-theme. What do you get for your discarded characters? ANY Marvel card you want. You need to search for a Marvel character? Done. Want that System Failure from your deck that you mulliganed away? Done. Need I go on? I don't think so. For Thunderbolts and any variation that teams up with the Bolts should definetly play at least a couple of this colossus of searching. You finally have a use for all of those extra characters every player eventually has in their hands!!

How do you justify having multiple copies in your deck when the discard will end up running your hand out of cards exceedingly fast? The best ways Thunderbolts has to offer are in the form of Win-Lose Deal and Deadly Conspiracy. Win-Lose Deal may allow your opponent to draw 2 cards as well as you, but you should be able to turn the 2 cards you draw into any card at your disposal. That effectively makes your "draw" heavily more consistent than your opponent's. Deadly Conspiracy just offers a single draw when used in the resource row, but the more you draw, the easier it is to pay MMW's cost.

Marvel Modern Age: 4.5/5 The scope is narrower in Modern Age with less cards to have access to. Still, getting any card from your deck should not be overlooked at all.

Golden Age: 5/5 2 Thunderbolt characters = Savage Beatdown? Yes please!

Sealed: 2/5 If you get a significant amount of Bolts, definetly put it in to ensure quality over quantity. Otherwise, just be happy you pulled an expensive rare.
