Daily Bugle is an interesting card that usually
only sees play when there is nothing better to
add to a deck. The basic reasoning behind this
is due to the fact that you will only be able to
get the effect of this card once, maybe twice if
you are lucky. That isn?t to say the card is
useless?after all it would be really funny were
this card to be played against a Kang deck. For
the most part this is the type of card that
would be found in a side-deck, if we had one. It
is a good idea to keep it mind when building
your deck, but only seriously consider it after
you have put in all the necessities.
MMA ? n/a
GA ? 2.5/5.0 ?This card depends heavily on
Limited ? 2.5/5.0 ?This can be a decent card in
this format since getting plenty of SF character
is relatively easy to do.
Daily Bugle is one of those cards that benefits
by you knowing what kind of decks your opponents
are likely to be playing. If you can predict
what characters they'll drop, then you can set
up Daily Bugle to give you extra uses out of
some of your favorite plot twists. Spider
Friends are showing up in more and more Golden
Age builds, as well as in combo decks with
Midnight Sons (to get the Spider Friends teamup).
Rogue decks may hurt you, but if you wind up
against Titans, Sentinels, or Kang decks
(especially Kang decks), you'll be able to get
multiple uses out of the Bugle.
Plot Twists are re-usable!
Card Type: Location
When you flip Daily Bugle, choose a character
Whenever a character with that name an opponent
controls becomes stunned by a Spider-Friends
character you control, you may turn a face-up
resource you control face down.
Usable fairly early on, and worth much more than
Name a character, stun them with your
Spider-Friends, and flip a face up resource face
down to use again. Gotta love it!
Team Affiliation: Spider-Friends
The SF team has some pretty hefty defense, but
not alot more than that. I do love to play them,
but they really need more ATK power to do well
enough. This card gives them an edge by allowing
you to re-use those powerups like Savage
Beatdown or Flying Kick. You can re-use Overload
or Finishing Move, Spider-Senses or any other
A VERY useful card, but with it's limitation to
Spider-Friends, it's usefulness is hindered.
However, if any team needs re-usable Plot
Twists, it's the Spider-Friends. If you team
them up with another team, this card's
usefulness is highly increased.
Really useful here, and you can make a really
good deck even better by using those Plot Twists
and one-shot Locations a second time, or even a
possible third and fourth times, if your
opponent is foolish enough to keep reviving that
Even more useful here, if you can beleive it.
You're only likely to get one or two copies of a
good card, and being able to get another use out
of it is highly valuable in this format. If you
get this, it's not too hard to get S-F
characters to use with it.
When you flip DB, choose a character name.
Whenever a character with that name becomes by a
spiderfriend character you control, you may turn
a face up resource you control face down.
This card has potential even though I have not
seen it used much. If you run against a deck
that abuses a character on multiple drops then
this card's effect is going to go wild! If room
permits its worth running in your deck spidey
deck simnply because it will allow you to double
up on a savage beatdown or acrobatic dodge even
if you only get to use it once.
Not a bad card, but not a great card. Its worth
running if you have room, but i wouldnt force it
into the deck.
