Marvel - Billy Batson
Hmmm... I am not sure quite where I stand with
this guy. On the one hand he is a beast that can
hit the field and make quite the showing. On the
other hand his effect sort of hints at using him
in the 4-resource JLI deck. Where does this guy
belong? Well, I think you could put in any JLI
deck you want and he would work pretty well.
When it comes to this card I will definitely
reserve my judgment for the moment. After all,
how many 5 or greater characters can one
possibly get on the field with a 4-resource JLI
deck or how much better will a curved JLI deck
work as compared to the 4-resource deck?
DCMA constructed - 3.0/5.0 ...This guy is a
beast, but you have to make sure that he has
synergy in your deck.
GA constructed - 3.0/5.0 ...This character's
loyalty limits the types of decks he can be
Limited - 2.5/5.0 ...Loyalty is a big issue
JLI 7 drop
reveal and KO captain marvel---->JLI attackers
with cost 5 or greater you control get +4 ATK
this attack. Use this power only if Captain
Marvel is in your resource row.
Captain Marvel is a good card that will seldom
see play. For a 7 drop he is quite beefy being a
17/17 and flight is always good, but as i have
stated before, JLI is built for the four
resource build. IF you instead team them up,
most other 7 drops are going to be better. The
Cap is going to be used more for his effect. His
reservist allows you to set a destroyable
resource, which is always a plus for JLI-4, and
grants characters with cost five or higher to
get +4 ATK when either attacking or defending.
The reason i say this card will be seldom played
is that there are better power boosting cards
that can be played on characters other than your
five drop. On a deck based on four or lower (but
yes you do run 5 drops) this card can be limited
in use. With JLI-4 you will run out of room in a
hurry, so more times than not, even though he is
actually a pretty good card, Captain Marvel
usually won't see play.
