Blow Hard - Windbag

Ok so eventually, when building a new deck with a new expansion set, it usually comes down to "what is the best team from the set". In my opinion, the order for this set is as follows:
1.) Morlocks
2.) Brotherhood
3.) X-men
4.) Hellfire Club

Oh yeah, Morlocks definitely came out on top. Sure brotherhood is a great team and has certainly deserved much of the press it has been given, but the Morlocks just bring more to the table. When it comes to Brotherhood you really only have two ways to go - Acolyte or Freedom Force. (Not to mention the fact that Brotherhood cards are over-inflated and hard to get right now.) However, Morlocks have at least 3 different themes - the non-reinforcement deck, the evasion deck, and the screw with your opponent's formation deck. Cheaper cards and more variation (and support for those variations) just equals out to a better team, period.

Today's card fits into the the "screw with your opponent's formation deck". Blow Hard is your standard 6-drop with stats of 12/12. He has range, which is nice, but his effect is why you play him. Whenever this guy attack, you get to move all of your opponent's characters to the support row. This is great for two reasons - 1.) He totally shuts down decks (like Brotherhood) that seriously lack range and 2.) If you play you game right your opponent will have a hard time reinforcing your attacks. The key here is that if you are going to run a "screw" deck you need to take the even initiative.

MMA constructed deck - 3.5/5.0 ...This card will screw with a lot of the new decks from the X-men set, but will have less of an impact against Squadron and Avengers because they have more range.

GA constructed - 2.5/5.0 ...Most tier 1 decks don't rely on their formations - hence the reason they are tier 1.

Limited - 3.5/5.0 ...This card is great in this format!
Sith Dragon Blow Hard, Windbag
6 drop
Trait: energy

Whenever Blow Hard attacks a character, that character's controller moves all characters he controls to his support row.

This week we look at the new Morlocks team and everythign you can do with them. Today's six drop is an average 12/12 with range, wich anymore is becoming smaller and smaller with the more characters coming out with 13's, it is still good. The effect is what's really going to mess with your opponent's formation. Having to move everyone of your characters to your support row can mess up the way you are tryingf to reinforce your characters, and can force a big drop that lacks range into a position where it cannot attack back that turn unless your opponent can give it range.

This may not be the best of the Morlock six drops, but is still very solid six drop.
