Roll Call

Roll call is an interesting card, simply because it is a decent cycling card that also provides endurance gain. Of course if you want to put the card into your deck simply for one effect or the other, you should probably tweak your deck, but it is still interesting nonetheless. Personally I have never really seen the point to this card, in a variation deck you will probably Kooey, Kooey, Kooey over this card and in a straight JLA deck you will probably want to curve out rather than off-curve so the endurance gain will be mute. However, I am not totally anti-Roll Call either...to me it makes decent filler.

Ratings:
DCMA - N/A
GA constructed - 2.5/5.0 ...You don't want filler in this format unless you are playing for fun.

Limited - N/A

Short one today folks, there's an ice storm moving in, and I'm trying to skip out early.

Today's we're looking back at Roll Call, an unobtrusive plot twist from the JLA set that gained some notoriety by becoming the lynchpin in a deck that played multiple weenies, used Detective Chimp (now banned) to make them all JLA, then gaining massive quantums of endurance and stalling out either to time, or to a Captain Marvel win. It was a DC Modern deck, and although it could possibly find a home in a Faces deck, the loss of Detective Chimp makes it a lot harder to gain the endurance necessary, plus Faces is a quick kill deck anyway. Drawing and discarding two cards is nice, as it allows you to dig for answers and load up the KO'd pile for Steel, Slaughter Swamp, or anything else that you'd need. The Roll Call deck may yet come back when Silver Age rolls around again, but JLA will have rotated out by the next Modern Age, and the deck is just too fragile for Golden Age.

Rating: Eh, let's go 2/5
