Acts of Vengeance
Basics: Magneto, like most of the Doom
characters, is all about KO-ing characters
(usually your own) for effects. This guy is a
5-drop with flight, range and stats of 9/9. His
effect allows you to exhaust a target character
during your attack step, so long as you KO a
character you control.
Constructed play: The new Doom affiliation is
all about KO-ing your own characters to get some
pretty nice effects. How does this translate
over to the older Doom characters? Well, I am
not sure. Certain cards will certainly translate
well to Common Enemy and others might make a
viable tier 1 mono-Doom deck. This card I can
see making it into Gamma Doom. After all, unlike
Robot Destroyer, this guy can target your
Sealed play: This character is actually a strong
5-drop for sealed play, if you are able to get
your hands on the odd initiative. You see, all
you have to do is use all of your characters to
attack, including this guy, then just KO one of
your stunned guys for Magneto's effect. No
matter how much more presence your opponent may
have, they are not going to be able to get over
all of that. This is also just one more way of
making your stunned characters work for you.

Man, is there a team that Magneto hasn't been
on? I expect him to be a Green Lantern by the
time Legion comes out. Anyway, we've got a 9/9 5
drop with Flight and Range, which means he's
automatically playable in Sealed. His effect
goes right along with the Doom theme of offing
your own characters, in this case to exhaust one
of your opponent's characters. You can only use
this on your attack step, and it's probably a
better trick if you can do it to your opponent's
6 drop. It can be a stunned character, so swing
in with your smallest guy, then KO him to
Magneto's effect, since you'd be losing him in
recovery anyway. Not much else to say, good
stats, good effect...
Can anyone explain to me when Magneto became a

Considering that the Doom affiliation is STILL
lacking in the five drop department (Kristoff or
Kang), I suppose this one is actually okay. If
you’re still looking at attacks coming your way
after your attack step, you can exhaust some
characters by killing off some of your own.
Still, I wish it wasn’t limited to YOUR attack
step. At least it can be done more than once...

Magneto, why are you a Doom character?
