Undefeated of the East Ancient Throne

This location from Legions of Superheroes is part of the new trend off new cards that has a triggered effect that only happens once per turn. This card has 2 main effects and both is centered around having a character with the name of Darkseid.

The triggered effect is when your opponent flips a location or plot twist from his resource row and you control Darkseid you can discard a card and flip down any card in any resource row and this can only trigger once per turn. This effect is great in 2 ways. First you can use it with the Darkseid Elite strategy of keeping face down cards in your opponents resource row and second you can reuse a plot twist or location in your own resource row.

The 2nd effect on this card is an activate ability, and this one makes cards you control with the name of Darkseid not unique this turn. Anybody familiar with Superman and Spider-man will know that there are many versions of those characters and have effects to allow you to play multiple characters with the same name like Cadmus Labs, Look Alike Squad, and the 6 drop Scarlet Spider.
There are several new Darkseids and cards that requires Darkseid and this effect will allow you to utilize them to greater effects.

Golden Age rating: 2/5 I don't think Darkseid based decks can use or counter the 2 main strategies in Golden, rush or stall.

Silver Age rating: 3/5 Darkseid has potential to do well in this format but only time will tell.

Modern Age rating: 3/5 Really depends on can a strategy involving many Darkseids can really work

Limited rating: 3.5 3 non rare Darkseids with good effects on a very solid team makes this card useful to have several good characters out at once, and with the resource recursion means more options for you.
