We finish off the week with a card that seems to
be the obvious replacement to Savage Beatdown,
Target attacker you control gets +4 ATK/-4 DEF
…is that it? That’s like, average. And it’s a
money rare. Granted, you can use it one turn
earlier, but that’s it? I mean, we’ve
encountered many power ups in the game of VS.
Savage Beatdown, Mega Blast, Trial By Fire,
Cosmic Conflict, All Too Easy, heck, even a
regular Flying Kick that can do the same, if not
a better job than Blinding Rage. And with the
exception of SB, those cards are all common.
Sure, you could kick off a Vengeance ability,
but if your attacking up the curve, that -4 DEF
shouldn’t really matter anyway.
DC Modern: I suppose this is feasible, seeing as
there is a lack of some
power ups. 4/5
Silver Age: Not bad, but there are better cards.
Golden Age: Flying Mega Savage Beatdown Blast
Like I said, average. It’s not bad, just
Rush decks love this card. Sending small
characters up the curve, then attacking directly
with the rest, is what the archetype is all
about. If your 2 drop is going to stun your
opponent's 4 drop, then odds are that your guy
is taking a stunback. Since that's the case,
then -4 DEF isn't going to change anything. The
+4 ATK, on the other hand, is going to ruin your
opponent's day, and probably keep them from
seeing Turn 6. However, with a threshold of 3,
you'll need a variety of cheaper pumps to help
dish out the early beats. Anti-Green Lantern
decks love this card, as the -4 DEF insures that
an AGL or Xallarap will be stunned during an
attack. Not a whole lot else to say, either your
deck needs it, or it doesn't.
In Limited, if you pull it, play it. Not many
folks will expect such a large boost, especially
since Blinding Rage is a rare. In Sealed, it's a
decent pick, especially if you're early in the
pack and haven't committed to a specific
archetype yet. Extra attack is always welcome,
especially if it lets you go up the curve a spot
