Mr. Mxyzptlk

Looks like this week we are going to indulge in some older cards that have been around a while. To start let?s look at Mr. Mxyzptlk?

Since this character has been around a while I am not going to bother with the usual talk about stats and abilities. If you have played this game for a while then you probably know what this guy does?and if not you should probably go look it up (shame on you).

So why play this card? Well, it isn?t because he has a cool virtually un-pronounceable name. Basically if you are playing Revenge Squad then you know that this guy is basically a free character on the field. This combos well with PT?s such as Toy Soldiers. He is also unstunnable which makes him great for cards like Flame Thrower. Of course his presence on the field may not last long and it allows your opponent?s attacking character to ready, but when you have the initiative this character can be really nice to have?.

DCMA ? 2.5/5.0 ?Unfortunately RS gets the short end of the stick in general in this format.
GA ? 2.5/5.0 ?.This character combos quite well with some GA cards.

Limited ? 2.5/5.0 ?If you can get enough RS characters then this guy is worth having?after all there is something to be said for board presence in this format.
Mr. Mxyzptlk

Okay, you all saw what the card was, I refuse to type his name out over and over in this review. Mr. "M", suffers from being part of a team that is too marginal to see Tier 1 status, even in the rarified atmosphere of DC Modern. All you need are a couple of Revenge Squad guys on the field, and Mr. M is a free recruit.

>From there, you can use him for payment powers, or if you can boost his attack, you can use him to take out an opponent's character without taking damage back, and if they attack him, he bounces back to your hand.
Somewhere, somehow, there's a strategy there, but so far not many people have bothered to find it. Maybe Revenge Squad will get some support in the upcoming JLA set, mainly because a Revenge Squad/Legion of Doom (or Injustice Gang) teamup deck would be pretty sweet, thematically speaking. In Sealed, don't bother.


Rating: 2/5



"Greetings, Mr. Muxzle-... Mr. Mixl-... FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

Mr. Mxyzptlk, Fifth Dimension Imp
Number: DSM-080
Rarity: Uncommon
Card Type: Character
Cost: 2
Team: Revenge Squad
Attack: 1
Defense: 1
Range: Yes
Flight: Yes
Mr. Mxyzptlk costs you 1 less to recruit for each Revenge Squad character you control.

Mr. Mxyzptlk cannot be stunned.

Whenever Mr. Mxyzptlk is attacked, return him to owner’s hand.

Cost: 2
Weak stats, but interesting effects to compensate.

ATK/DEF: 1/1
His effects somewhat make up for his weak stats.

Range/Flight: Both
Well, at least he has this going for him.

If you already have 2 other Revenge Squad characters out, he's free to recruit. also, he can't be stunned, and he returns to your hand when attacked.

Team Affiliation: Revenge Squad
I don't know that much about this team, but from what I do know, there isn't alot that makes this deck highly desirable to play. It does have it's tricks, such as deck cycling effects, some KO effects, and effects related to stunning. It's an ok team, but I haven't heard of the RS team being used very much. Mr. M doesn't add anything useful to the team, either.

Well, he can be a free character to recruit, but he's rather useless in the long run. If he had higher stats, he might have been useful, but as he is, he's rather useless, except in a few obscure combos.

There's better cards to use, even for an RS deck. Mercy and Encantadora are much better choices.

His effects are even less useful in this format. Look elsewhere.
