Gordon - Lieutenant Gordon
The latest version of Gordon is a 1-drop
character with 1/1 stats that allows you to
search for a character card named Batman then
put the card on the top of your deck. Ok so this
is sort of like Boliver only worse. First off
you don't get to put the card you search for
into your hand...it is part of your next draw.
Second, Gordon is just asking to be picked
on...especially now with all the flight and
range characters that are out there (If you play
CS then you know what I mean). Third, and this
is the biggie, THERE IS NO WAY TO CANCEL
BATMAN'S UNIQUENESS! Who is going to run the 3,
4, 5, and 7 Batman in there deck if they can't
get rid of uniqueness...duh!
Bottom line: Just stick to using Bat
Signal...trust me on this one
DCMA - ...
GA constructed - 2.0/5.0 ....If you are paranoid
about not getting your Batman then you could try
it I guess....

Gordon, Lieutenant Gordon
I want to like this card, but unfortunately, I
now own an Alfred. There's no other 1 drop for
GK (other than GCPD for swarm), although Gordon
would be a little more tempting if the Batman
you searched for went your hand, instead of the
top of your deck. Bat-Signal is still the better
way to find Batman, and its not a dead draw
because you can drop it any time to find any GK
character, even if just for a powerup or a
discard for Fizzle. Still, it's a nice easy
effect for the starter.
once again today as these starter deck cards
we've been reviewing have not deserved to be
included in any established Gotham deck.
(Outside of Batcomputer and possibly Gotham
City) Today it's a much younger
Commissioner Gordon as a 1 drop. Now correct me
if I'm wrong, but doesn't have Gotham have a
certain 1 drop that's far superior? Alfred of
course is heads over heels better than
Lieutenant Gordon any day and in any Gotham
deck. Sure you get a pseudo search effect when
the good Lieutenant comes into play, but the
card isn't even added to your hand, it just goes
on top of your deck for you to essentially "rig"
one of your two draws next turn.
If Lieutenant did that for plot twists then you
could hunt out Fizzles, Bat-Signals, and
Detective Works and set your draw very nicely
for next turn. Speaking of Bat-Signal, since
every Gotham deck plays Bat-Signal, why
do you need a sub-par one drop that does the job
half as good as Bat-Signal does? The answer is,
DC Modern Age: 1.5/5 The only Batman you can get
with him is the starter deck version and
possibly Azrael @ Batman if you're able to.
Golden Age: 1/5 Alfred is the one drop you play
in Gotham, not this.
Sealed: 2/5 It can be handy to get your 7 drop
for late game right away so you don't have to
draw into him.
