Cloak - Child of Darkness

This week we are going back in time to discuss some cards that we missed the first time around...to start, let's take a look at an interesting 3-drop from MMK - Cloak.

Cloak is an interesting 3-drop. I am not necessarily a big fan of concealed characters because they open up your field. The only reason why you should ever run a concealed character is 1.) it is a 1-drop that is only going to get smashed later on, 2.) opening up your field isn't such a big deal since you are able to use your concealed characters to smash your opponent into the ground (AGL), or 3.) even though it may be a concealed character it has one heck of an effect. Cloak certainly doesn't fit 1 or 2 and, in my opinion, only barely fits 3. Since all you have to do is activate this card to exhaust an opponent's 3-drop, UDE decided to give this card some strong setbacks. First of all in order to even get this card on the field you need to reveal a MK character from your hand. This is pretty easy if you are running MK, but this card really shines in a multiple variation stall deck - which means you better have your team up early. Second, you can't really use this character for offense. With stats of 7/4 this character is considered weak at best (especially since X-men hit the scene).

Bottom Line - Unless you are going to run a multiple variation stall deck, don't bother with this card.

Ratings:
MMA constructed - n/a
GA constructed - 2.5/5.0 ...This card doesn't belong in this format.

Limited - 2.0/5.0 ...This card's recruitment cost is too high to justify for this format...Only take it if there is nothing else available.
