Jokerkiller The B Team
3 cost plot twist

Curve fixer for Marvel Defenders. Since backup cards are easy to come by for the Defenders the draw back will only be hard in sealed or draft. Its a rare so it wont see much play in sealed or draft so the cars good. Turn 3 is normal for search of this sort so the cost is normal. What most people forget is that now you can splash any affiliated characters into a Defenders deck. This card is good itll see plenty of play. Ill rate it a 5/5. Once again search is the most powerful mechanic of the VS system and being able to hit a drop or tool box card is very important!

The b Team

Mobilize was the search card that got all of the attention when it came out in Legion, but Marvel Team-Up has a searcher that has quietly come up and possibly surpassed Mobilize as the must have search card for Modern Age.

To use The B Team, discard a Marvel Defenders card with backup, then you can search your deck for any affilated character card. It's a narrow teamstamp on the cost, but just about the widest possible area of effect. Using Marvel Defenders, which are already a great team, as the anchor of a toolbox strategy could be a great play for the next PC. Much like FTN's Mexican Hardware Store used Wild Ride and Marvel Knights as a core, and then used Enemy of my Enemy to fetch toolbox characters as every drop. Enemy of my Enemy isn't legal in the next Modern Age, but B Team is still a strong strategy, even being able to combo with Mobilize if you play an early Defender curve with their utility backup guys, then slide in some techy characters at higher drops as one-ofs.

5/5

The "B" team

3 cost Plot Twist

In short, you Discard a Backup Marvel Defenders to search for an Affiliated character, and put it in hand.

OK... as I stated last week with the "Indebted" card, card advantage of any sort can be a good thing. Even if it is only Virtual card advantage. While you may be discarding a card, you are getting one that could potentially be better in the situation that you are in. The only thing I'm not sure about is the "Marvel Defenders" team. There are plenty of 'Backup' characters in it (3 words: Howard the Duck, O, Joy!!!). So, I like The "B" Team. If you play a Marvel Defenders deck, or a deck with at least a few Marvel Defenders with Backup, you'll probably want to run a few of these.

Overall: 3/5 (only cuz I don't know much about the Marvel Defenders yet)
