Monitor Womb Station

Today we are going to look at a very nice card for all JLA decks out there - Monitor Womb Station. This card is nice, very nice. You can think of it as a Null Time Zone of sorts, except for the fact that this card only targets PTs with a cost of 1. Of course depending on the format, this card may not make the cut. We all know that UDE has been shying away from great 1-cost PT's since DGL, but that doesn't mean that it won't make the cut in Golden Age. Think of all the potential this card can provide -- no acro dodge, nasty surprise, etc -- Still NTZ is the better card, but this card provides a very good second choice.

DCMA constructed - 2.5/5.0-This can be a useful card in this format since the number of truly playable decks is so small.

GA constructed - 3.0/5.0 -This card is more versatile in this format, but it isn't as good as NTZ.

Limited - 1.5/5.0 -You have to have the characters and field layout to make this card work right and you can be in short supply of both in this format.
Monitor Womb Station

I'm not really sold on the usefulness of this card.
There are certainly more than a few plot twists of cost 1 or less that can give you headaches during a game, but there are a lot more 2 cost and higher plot twists that I'd rather stop. It doesn't stop teamups, it doesn't stop Teen Titans Go, and it only stops a few combat pumps. It does stop Null Time Zone, but out-teching tech can be risky. The Nonuniqueness of MWS makes it slightly more playable, letting you shut down 4 plot twists that your opponent may or may not be playing. It's JLA teamstamped, and you have to keep a non stunned JLA member on the board to keep negating the plot twist, which makes it more situational. Playing this card means that you have to be able to look at what your opponent has put down the first couple of turns and try and guess what deck they're playing, and what 1 cost plot twists may or may not be in the deck. If you're good enough to do that every round of a tournament with one game matches, then you're good enough to win without this card. Stick to NTZ.

Rating: 1.5/5

Monitor womb station is not unique.
When you flip MWS, name a plot twist with cost one or less.
While you control a non-stunned JLA character, your opponent cannot play the named card.

First of all let me revisit yesterday's card. I ran into an injustice gang/doom deck monday night. The ability to pump cards into your opponents hand is incredible, adn with doom to safely keep the plot twists in my hand, is was rather deadly. He was also using other plot twists to burn me everytime i drew a card and also kept me to only playing one plot twist pre-Doom. He did not use IGS, but i can see how it could be a killer card with some help from effects like Dr Doom.

OK! today's card. This is a very situational card that i really don't think is that good. In many ways its similiar to null-time zone. Being able to get multiples of this card up could really shut down the abilities of a deck to do things. However, look at the killer cards from most decks. You will find that many if not most cost 2 or more, so it really won't stop much.

In the end, while this could be a potentially devastating effect, I really do not think that it will stop too many powerful cards due to it only effecting a plot twist of 1 or less.
