White Tiger -
Today we are looked at another popular sealed
format card - White Tiger
White Tiger is a new 5-drop beast for the
Spider-Friends team. With stats of 9/10 and
evasion, this character is sure to make an
appearance in many SF decks. White Tiger also
had invulnerability when defending against
exactly one character, which makes him a must in
MMA constructed - n/a
GA constructed - 3.0/5.0 -This character is a
nice addition to an evasion-based SF deck.
Limited - 4.0/5.0 -His sheer size alone warrants
him being included in your deck in this format.
"The eye of
the tiger!" - Survivor
Today is a very powerful addition to the
Spider-Friends arsenal, in the form of a much
better 5 drop than the current choices that
Spider-Friends has to offer.
5 Resource Cost
Initative Preference: Either
Effect: Evasion (Stun this character >>> Recover
this character at the start of the recovery
phase this turn.)
White Tiger has invulnerability while defending
against exactly one attacker.
Well, stat wise, White Tiger is definetly above
average. 10 defense is a great wall for your
opponent to get by, whether he's attacking or
defending against White Tiger. Coupling him with
the 4 drop Spiderman means he's a
9/11 on offense and a 10/10 on defense, in other
words, truly dominating.
Evasion is still a relatively unexplored concept
and not nearly as powerful enough as it can be,
but it is a nice way to avoid nasty breakthrough
loss if your opponent goes crazy with attack
pumps to kill you outright.
The final effect of White Tiger is what makes
him a true defensive boon. It practically tells
your opponent that you're saving 5 endurance if
your opponent sends a solo attacker into White
Tiger. And with 10 defense, breakthrough isn't
easy to do on turn 5 if your opponent does have
the initative. If your opponent decides to team
attack him, sure, you'll take the stun damage,
but it's win-win for you on defense with White
Tiger. He's great in any Spider-Friends curve
build, and a freaking monster in draft/sealed.
Marvel Modern Age: Spider-Friends are only
Golden Age legal now! n/a
Golden Age: 4/5 It's White Tiger, 5 drop Spidey,
Daredevil, Human Torch, or Firestar as your 5
drop of choice. White Tiger wins in spades, but
a 5 drop Spidey or two doesn't hurt for powering
Sealed: 4.5/5 If you have such a closely knit
strategy and deck where your 5 drops are all
decided, then you can pass him up. That rarely
does happen so when White Tiger shows up, scoop
EVASION. White tiger has invulnerability while
defending against exactly one attacker.
Yet another solid card coming out of MAV. While
this is a spidey card, its abilities add to the
long list of annoying spider friends characters.
I really dont see spidey much anymore, but the
decks i have seen are most annoying.
A 9/10 is a very solid 5 drop with avg attack
and above avg def. The kicker of this card is
with white tiger you are guaranteed to be able
to keep your 5 drop on the field giving you
better character advantage late in the game when
His effect is also pretty good as your opponent
will either have to team attack, lose an
attacker for later, just to do the 5 damage, or
attack one on one and only cause whatever
breakthrough you can. Either way....most
annoying! This is a solid spidey card.
"Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"
week for me; remembering the Dexter's Lab
episode where Justice Friends Krunk invited
their own White Tiger home for the night...*

Ok for this cost.
An "up close and personal" type of guy.
Evasion and Invulnerable agains a single
Team Affiliation: Spider-Friends
The team has incredible Defense, but not alot in
You'll need lots of ATK boosters to make them
last. White Tiger just adds to the Defensive
theme, but adds nothing else.
As I just stated, he just adds to the team's
great DEF, when what they really need is more
power. He's ok, but I'd just stick with Symiote
SM, Firestar and Iceman for the 5 slots. He'll
always be team attacked, to negate his effect,
so he's almost useless, most of the time.
Not too spectacular, and a prime target for team
attacking. He'll get slaughtered by Teen Titans
and X-Men decks.
Team attacking is harder to do here, so his
usefulness is somewhat better in this format.
