Pojo's VS System Card of the Day

Sorry, we don't have this card yet.

  Hal Jordan - Parallax

Green Lantern Corps

Date Reviewed: 05.06.05

Constructed Average Rating: 3.5
Limited Average Rating: 3.75

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.


Hal Jordan - Parallax

Whoops! Ok so maybe Anti-Monitor isn't the biggest 9-drop in the game. That is what I get for not properly reviewing my COD's in advance. Oh well, it isn't like I haven't screwed up before.

This is definitely the biggest 9-drop ever! As a 25/25 character this guy has it all with flight and range. Not only that but you can discard a card to give this character +5 willpower. Any card and no activation requirements mean major willpower boosts. Willpower is definitely nothing to scoff at since it is the main mechanism for this set. You can just imagine all the possibilities. If nothing else you have one heck of an attacker on the field...

DMA constructed - 3.0/5.0 ...You have to make sure your deck makes it to turn 9 so you can drop this bomb
GA constructed - 3.5/5.0 ...There are more options for getting to turn 9 in this format and this character has no loyalty to hold him back

Limited - 2.0/5.0 ...See Monday COD...(you should be dead by turn 9)

Hal Jordan, Paralllax – Hal goes bad and becomes one of the most powerful characters in the VS. universe.  With both Flight and Range and stats of 25/25, Hal can even take out the mighty 10 drop Imperiax with a little +1 ATK boost.  Hal is definitely the biggest 9 drop in the game to date and also matches his 25/25 stats one on one with the 10 drop Dark Phoenix.
If that wasn’t enough what makes Hal Jordan, Parallax so bad and mighty is that he starts with a Willpower of 5.  Then you can discard a card and he gets +5 willpower for each card discarded this turn.  Combo this with Zero Hour during the combo phase and say you discarded 3 cards to get Parallax up to 20 Willpower, your opponent just lost 20 endurance.  If that wasn’t enough to win you the game then just swing in for the attack with Hal and his 25 ATK value will most likely do it.
Constructed:  4/5 – This combo with Parallax and Zero Hour can go toe to toe with any deck in Golden or Modern age, with the saving grace that if you can get to Turn 9 in Golden age all the better.  I can see more and more speed decks coming out of this to combat the uber power of the Green Lantern set.  Win before Turn 9 because if you don’t then Green Lantern will stomp you.
Limited: 4.5/5 – Again this rating is if you can get to Turn 9 in Limited which isn’t very often but if you do and your opponent doesn’t have a 9 drop then you just won.
