UN General Assembly

Today we are going to take a look at yet another card for JLI - UN General Assembly. Basically this card is great if you are thinking about teaming up JLI/JLA. After all there are a few characters out there (i.e. Martian Manhunter) that have JLI/JLA and can be searched for via this card with out the necessity of having a team up card on the field. Of course there are other possibilities out there, like using a team up card to get your dual affiliations, but then you have to weigh the good of the team up with the space it will take up in your deck. Right now I am not so sure that teaming up JLI with another team will make the affiliation stronger than it already is.

DCMA constructed - 4.0/5.0 ...Regardless it is still a search card.
GA constructed - 3.0/5.0 ...Team up cards don't stand a great chance of lasting in this format.

Limited - 4.5/5.0 ...With all the team ups out there, you stand a good chance of teaming up something with JLI.
UN General Assembly

One of the things that makes a team playable or not is whether they have a decent search card. This is that card for JLI. Exhausting a character isn't a bad cost at all, especially since you don't have to discard like you do with Signal Flare and Bat-Signal.
However, being forced to search for a character with two affiliations does narrow your options a bit. The way it's worded, it sounds like you'd be able to search for a card with a single affiliation as long as it's teamed up. For example, if you've got JLI and Fantastic Four teamed up, then you could search for Thing because he would have two team affilations due to the team-up on the field. That expands the usefulness of the card by a lot, assuming you pull your team-ups early. Being a rare takes some of the shine off though, it makes it tougher to compile a playset of these, and you'll want to run 4 copies of this card in your deck.

In Limited, it's still a good pick, as you only have to have one JLI character on the board to exhaust, and dual-affiliated characters are all over the place here. Is it a first pick? Maybe...consistency is huge in this format.

Rating: 4/5

Today we review a JLI twist that is valued is most builds concerning or involving JLI in any regard, U.N. General Assembly.

U.N. General Assembly
Plot Twist
Threshold Cost 2
Rarity: Rare

Effect: You may exhaust a JLI character you control. If you do, search your deck for a character card with two or more team affiliations, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

It has the same character tutor cost as Bat-Signal does but it's a rare essentially. For the extra price it costs to actually acquire the card, you get a lot more versatility. That being able to take ANY dual affiliated character your deck possesses at the cost of the exhaustion. This is especially useful if you're playing a JLI team-up with a team-up that affects the deck with the extra affiliations. (i.e. World's Greatest
Heroes.) As with all character tutors, it's only as good as the characters you're playing.

DC Modern Age: 4/5 Character search is valuable regardless of the format.

Golden Age: 4/5 See DC Modern Age.

Sealed/Draft: 2.5/5 If you're able to get a lot of JLI characters and this, definetly play it. Otherwise, pass.
Sith Dragon UN general assembly
plot twist: 2
you may exhaust a JLI character you control. If you do, search your deck for a charactercard with two or more team affiliations, reveal it, piut into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

Two words - waste-of-space. This is a card that should really only be played in a JLI team-up deck. JLI by itself favors the JLI-4 build, but can be improved in a team-up deck with, say, JLA.

The good side to this card is that if you are teaming JLI up, this is perhaps the second best searcher in the game, right behind Avengers Assemble. All you have to do is exhast a character, which is easy enough to do on the defensive. No discard or anything, making it a free character in most cases.

The dowside to this card is that it has to have two affiliations. While there are plenty of characters that have two affiliations on their own, there are not enought to really warrant the use of this card outside of a JLI team-up deck.

If you plan on teaming up the JLI, I would highly recomend this card.....outside of that - trade it.
