This week we are going to look the money cards for the new X-men expansion. Starting from the low end to the high end, these cards are definitely going for some good money. To start things off, we are going to take a look at Snikt!

Ok, ok ...In reality there were three cards that vied for third place as far as the money cards go. The choice came down to Snikt!, Worthington Industries, and The Acolytes. However, since Snikt! has been worth quite a bit from the get go, and the other two only recently have been selling high, I figured we should go ahead and give this card its due.

Snikt! is a rather impressive 3-cost PT that gives a target attacker or defender you control +4 attack. It does have one big drawback in the fact that you have to discard an X-men character card, but the benefits certainly outweigh the cost in any X-men/X-men variation deck. (Heck, if you want you can use Midnight Sons just to use this card if you really wanted.) Being able to give +4 to ANY attacker or defender you control is great and being able to use the card on your off-initiative helps to insure you won't be stuck with a dead card in your hand. Of course it would be nice if this card had a lower threshold cost, but hey - at least it isn't a 4-cost. This card would probably replace Savage Beatdown in my X-men deck for its lower cost and versatility (not to mention lower price).

Bottom Line - Is it worth the money? Well perhaps. If you are seriously looking at playing X-men then you will need this card to make tier 1. However I wouldn't necessarily pay more than $5 a piece for it.

MMA constructed - 4.5/5.0 ...This card definitely provides bang for the buck, but it limits your deck.
GA constructed - 3.5/5.0 ...Discarding characters in this format is tricky...better stick to Mega Blast.

Limited - 5.0/5.0 ...With the abundance of X-men characters in this format, playing this card shouldn't be that hard.
Sith Dragon Snikt!
Plot Twist 3

As an additional cost to play Snikt!, discard an X-Men character card. Target attacker or defender gets +4 ATK this Attack.

This is a very simple card and s both deserving and undeserving of being a money card form this set. With all the discarding X-men have to do, it can add up in a hurry if you are not careful, so that is a downer to this card, but giving a character a +4 ATK is big! And the better thing is that this card can be used on offense or defense, which is the sole reason this card is worth playing. In golden age, I think there are enough other cards out there worth playing that this may not make a final cut in X-Men depending what you are playing, but in Modern this card is the money! If you pull this, you either have a pretty good card or REALLY good trading fodder.
