Smiles, Everyone!

This card isn't hard to figure out. If anyone played Arkham Inmates then this card would definately see quite a bit of action. However, since no one plays AI and this one card does not make AI playable it will probably collect quite a bit of dust. Personally I think this card would be great in an AI deck on turns you did not have initiative, provided you loaded down your deck with Acrobatic Dodges so that your characters do not get stunned. Then again I do not play AI or any version of AI, nor do I see any reason to....there are simply more effective and fun decks out there.

AI Constructed - 2.5/5.0 ....This card does help an otherwise very bad team affiliation

Limited - 1.5/5.0 ....A card with no real support is not going to get a good rating for this format
Smiles, Everyone!

Arkham Inmates needed some help in the new set in order to become tournament playable...and this isn't it. Smiles, Everyone! is the definition of "situational". First you have to have an Inmate on the field. Then you have to target an exhausted defender, which severely limits when you can even activate this card. Finally, you then have to stun that targeted character. There's a card that does this a lot easier, and it's called Finishing Move. I suppose if you play Puppet Master in your Arkham deck then this card becomes a little more playable, but not that much.

In Limited, you've got very few options for the inmates, making this card even tougher to use. Pass this rare and try to find something useful. In a mixed event, you're still going to be hurting if you run heavy Arkham without a lot of help.


Constructed - 1.5/5
Limited (MOS) - 1/5

Dawn Yoshi There's nothing quite like seeing a bunch of big smiles on a bunch of dead people...if anyone EVER says that to you with a sense of satisfaction, get away from them as quickly as possible. They're probably big fans of the Joker, or the Joker himself, but hey, if it was the Joker, the white skin green hair and creepy smile would give it away...okay, on to the review.

Smiles, Everyone! is a powerful aid to the Arkham Inmates in their board control abilities. We already have Charaxes, who is an above average 3 drop that can KO defenders, and we also have access to Kidnapping, easily the most powerful board control plot twist in the game (too bad it's on a team that's one of the seemingly least powerful in the game). The advantage to this card is how its effect goes off whenever the exhausted defender is stunned this turn. This is helpful in case they protect their defender from getting stunned by your main attacker, as you'll still have a chance at KOing that character with any attackers you have left. Team attacks always work well. The card is easy to play, and exhausting characters is relatively easy for the Arkham Inmates to accomplish. Now if only the team could get a tutor...

In limited, this card may be a worthwhile pick in the mid to late draft. Blockbuster is a decent splash card if you're missing some strong 3 drops, and having him out on the field is all you need to play this card. It's a bit situational, but it's still a form of board control. Don't immediately shrug this off as a last pick.

Constructed- 3.5/5
Limited- 2/5


Without Victory, there is no survival...
