Professor Ivo

It's Unaffiliated Week, a decktype never played and made even more useless by the announcement of the Silver Age format, which takes away Mojo.

Professor Ivo: Good news, you can search for an unaffiliated character card. Bad news, now you have an unaffiliated character card in your hand. This gets you Mojo, then becomes a liability. Evasion doesn't really have a reason to exist on him, except maybe to keep him around to pump Mojo I guess. Makes Unaffiliated's curve a little smoother, assuming you have him in hand on Turn 2, otherwise you defeat the purpose of playing him. Not that good in Sealed either, unless you have no other 2 drops and really want to play Amazo on 8.

Rating: 1/5
Sith Dragon Anthony Ivo
2 drop
F/R: no

EVASION. When Professor Ivo comes into play, you may discard a card. If you do, search your deck for an unaffiliated character, reveal it, put it into your hand adn shuffle your deck.

YAY! JLA brings some more help for the Unaffiliated decks. And some big help it is too! I picked this week's cards because unaffiliated decks, for the most part, have ben ignored, despite having some real powerhouses. While I am the only person around here that plays an unaffiliated deck, there are some big cards in this new set for anyone who has tried or wants to try it. Today's card is one of the best new characters.

Ivo is your standard defensive 2 drop being a 2/3. He also lacks flight and range. So far no big deal. He does have evasion, though. This mean he should be able to hang around with your 3 drop til Mojo comes out, who can then laugh in feral rage sabertooth's face.

This character's big help comes with its effect. It finally gives the unaffiliated decks a chance to search for other characters. The downside is that it is on a character and not a plot twist, so after turn 2 you have to small drop to use it and also discard a card, but with Mojo on turn 4 small dropping is not always a bad thing. Besides lockup and puppetmaster you now have a very good two drop for the unaffiliated decks. I would definately run four as any search helps. This is a character you really need to draw early.

Having played quite a bit with my unaffiliated deck i can say that when I curve I rarely lose even to the tier one decks, but when I don't curve, I get slaughtered. Having any search ability is huge, so Ivo is a big help to the unaffiliated decks. On Wed we will review a big location, and friday we will look at a very solid plot twist.

Battle On!
