June 2, 2005 – Rain of Acorns
Today we are going to look at a card that I
happen to like a lot. Rain of Acorns is a
1-cost, ongoing plot twist that states "Exhaust
a character with willpower 1 or greater you
control to exhaust target unprotected character.
Use this power only during your attack step".
Wow! Imagine the possibilities…can we say stall?
This card is a great way to annoy your opponent.
I certainly gives support to decks with low
level characters and stall decks, as now you can
easily exhaust your opponent’s entire front row.
Combine this card with other PT’s that provide
incentives for attacking exhausted characters
(Crushing Blow, Sucker Punch, etc.) and you have
a way to get your opponent’s front row stunned
so that you can get to their support row. I am
not sure this card will work well in curve
decks, simply because you do not necessarily
want to exhaust a bunch of your characters late
game. I definitely don’t see this card being
played outside of DGL, unless future sets have
willpower. However, this card is extremely good
in the current limited environment. It is
certainly a fun card to have around….
DCMA constructed – 2.0/5.0 …Watch out for
support characters with range!
GA constructed - 2.5/5.0 …Here you have more
PT’s that support attacking exhausted
Limited – 3.0/5.0 …This is a great card to use
in case you miss a drop and need protection.
Rain of Acorns
– Here we are looking at a
new type of Plot Twist that
was introduced in Green
Lantern called Construct.
All the same rules still
apply. Basically there are
other cards out there that
let you fetch Construct Plot
Twists from your deck which
is really nice. The pic on
this card is hilarious.
Rain of Acorns is a so-so
card. Once you have
surprised your opponent by
playing it and since it is
an ongoing Plot Twist they
will know how to defend
against it as the game goes
2.5/5 – Once you pull off
the surprise your opponent
will be ready for it next go
3/5 – Options are more
limited here and you also
need Willpower characters
for this to work. Unless
you are really in a bind it
is better to actually launch
an attack during your attack
card in confusion* Uuuuhhhhh..... Oookayyy... A
REALLY weird Plot Twist for today...
Rain of Acorns, Construct
Card Type: Plot Twist
Ongoing: Exhaust a character with willpower 1 or
greater you control >>> Exhaust target
unprotected character. Use this power only
during your attack step.
Usable from the beginning of the game if you
place it as a resource (Which, with it having a
continuous effect, you'll want to).
Fun that keeps on lasting, and a good way to
both prevent those nasty activated powers during
It's a bit of a trade-off, but it can be useful.
You can exhaust a character that's too weak to
help you in your attacks this turn, to deny them
a counter-attack with one of their more powerful
characters, or deny them the use of a
character's activated ability or power that
works while that character is Ready.
Team Affiliation: None specified (Willpower
needed though) Requiring you to exhaust a
character with Willpower does limit the card's
usfulness, but doesn't cripple it. Grren
Lantern, Emerald Enemies and Anti-Matter can all
use this card as their teams all use Willpower.
Useful for stall tactics, and sheer annoyance
factor. This can definately be a help, provided
your opponent gives you the chance to use it.
Not the most game-breaking card out there. I'm
not the biggest fan of exhausting effects, and
this is just par for the course... nothing
Pretty much the same thing here. Not the
greatest of cards out there.
Well, if you get enough cards to use this with
(easy to do in this format, as it comes in the
same set as all of the currently available
characters with Willpower), then Rain of Acorns
could be useful. Not alot I personally have to
say about this one.
