Lair of the
Unaffiliated got a little help in DGL with
Mosaic World, and now DJL brings up Lair of the
It's another location that allows your
characters to team attack as if they had all
team affiliations, thus taking away one of the
big drawbacks of running unaffiliateds. Mosaic
World lets all of your characters reinforce each
other, Lair can activate to reinforce one of
your characters, but only an unaffiliated one.
In my opinion, this makes Mosaic World a more
flexible card, as it doesn't punish you for
playing affiliated and unaffiliated characters
in the same deck, as far as reinforcement goes.
This is more of a card for Sealed play, as it
allows you to get more value from your
characters without having to worry about pulling
enough teamups. Still, not many of the
unaffiliated cards from this set will find their
way into a Sealed deck, making Lair's
reinforcement effect a rare occurrence. If
you're bound and determined to run an
unaffiliated deck...run Mosaic World, and only
put Lair of the Mastermind in if you're that
worried about being able to team attack.
Rating - 1.5/5
Lair of the
Characters you control can team attack as though
they had all affiliations.
Activate-->target unaffiliated character you
control has reinforcement this attack.
Take Mosaic world and GCPD headquarters and
combine them. What do you get? Lair of the
Mastermind! In my opinion LotM is better than
Mosaic world, but i suppose it depends on how
you play. I was to the point of taking Mosaic
out. The only real advantave to it is that it
allows you to team attack. Most decks either
have flight or can give flight to characters so
they can pick apart your formation, so it is
impossible to get anyone reinforced. Now comes
LotM. With this card you can team attack just as
you would with Mosaic, so you lose nothing on
WHere you get the advantage is that you can pick
any character you want and give them
reinforcement, whether it be the front row
character or the character they single out to do
massive breakthorugh on. I have enough
experience with GCPD to know this can really
screw with your opponents plans. I had one guy
who used soongbird(I think) and multiple team
tactics to boost her over 30 ATK. I activated
GCPD and his jaw hit the floor. He hadn't seen
the second effect.
In the end you can run this and/or mosaic wolrd
and be highly effective, but i prefer to run one
of these and coast city. You will just have to
see how this fits your style. In my opinion this
is way better than Mosaic World.
