Amenhotep - Dark Pharaoh

Today we come to a card that can be slightly debated for a reservist deck - Amenhotep.

Some people like to include Amenhotep in their reservist build simply for his automatic recovery effect. I, on the other hand, tend to shy away from this card simply because I like to try to stay within a single team affiliation when it comes to a reservist deck so that I can get the most out of my PT's and locations. That is not to say this card is bad in any way...it just isn't for everyone. This card's auto-recovery makes him a good back-up 5-drop, but I say stick to the main team affiliation you are working with...you will probably get more out of you deck in the long run...

Ratings:
MMA constructed - 3.0/5.0 ...This character is a good alternative 5-drop
GA constructed - 2.5/5.0 ...Once this guy goes to the concealed area you open your field up to attack...

Limited - 4.0/5.0 ...Having a character that automatically recovers is gold in this format.

Amenhotep

Not much to say about today's card. He was a nice backup 5-drop because of his reservist status, and having him in the hidden area isn't bad, since it guarantees a swing back on off-init. However, She Hulk and Sub-Mariner are both better options at 5, so Amenhotep should be seeing no play at all in a competitive Avengers deck.

As far as limited play goes, he's a very average 5-drop, and his ability is more of a hinderance than a bonus. He's a very late pick, and only if you either really need a spare 5 or a spare reservist.

1/5
