Pojo's VS System Card of the Day



Family of Four
Card #MVL-191

Family of Four

If you've been reading the other Marvel Legends cards
that have previewed lately, then you've seen how many
cards in the set are designed to be used with a
singular "Legendary" character. Well, our preview
focuses on a Legendary team: The Fantastic Four.

The Fantastic Four had one of the better combat pumps
all the way back in Marvel Origins; It's Clobberin
Time gave a FF character a +3/+3 boost. While Savage
Beatdown was all about destructive power, It's
Clobberin Time gave your character the ability to
attack up the curve and still have a good chance at
not getting stunned back.

Family of Four continues this trend by giving a
character +1/+1 for each member of the Fantastic Four
(the original crew, natch) you control. With classic
characters getting the focus for this set, there are
sure to be multiple versions of Mr. Fantastic, Thing,
Invisible Woman, and Human Torch for you to have out;
giving Family of Four the potential to be a +4/+4
pump. It's not even team-stamped, so if you were to
splash other characters in a FF deck (say, in a
draft), you'd still get the benefit of the effect.

Join us next week, where Pojo will have another
exclusive Marvel Legends preview for you. By the time
it sees print, I'll be in Indy, hopefully drafting the
new set in person (as well as playing in my first Pro
Circuit). If you're at Gencon, come by and say hello!

What? Didn’t we just do preview cards for World’s Finest? It’s barely been a month since that set came out, I don’t think I’m ready for another set…

Family of Four
Plot Twist/4
Target character gets +1/+1 this attack for each Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic and Thing you control.


So, with the Marvel Legends set comes changes, for better or for worse. With this card we immediately see that the design for each card is drastic from the old cards. They actually look very similar to World of Warcraft cards. In case you guys never heard of World of Warcraft, I don’t blame you. The card game is pretty non-existent compared to the MMORPG. My problem is that I’m so used to the old card designs, so these are a negative appeal to me. But on the plus side, there’s more artwork, which is Upperdeck’s justification of the new design. I guess that is nice…

Secondly, if I’m correct, the Marvel Legends set is essentially our version of Magic’s core set, the recent one being 10th edition. So, expect at least half of the Marvel Legends cards to be reprints. And chances are, they’ll be good reprints, because I could sure use a common Enemy of My Enemy…

But I guess I should preview the card. Family of Four will most likely be a card good for an Inhumans/Fantastic Four variant. But that’s it. It’s kinda too situational for my taste, but as long as you have either one of those characters out, you won’t end up with a dead card.

Overall: N/A

C’mon, you know I don’t rate preview cards…

 Holy wow, its been a while since we've gotten any card to review for the CotD's. Unfortunatly, we are on a short week, but we do have some pretty rockin' cards. I'm really not sure what the set is, though... call me stupid. But, here we go!!!

Family of Four

4 cost Plot Twist

Target character gets +1/+1 this attack for each Human Tourch, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, and Thing you control.

Oh, yeah... this is sweet. I am lovin' the new look for the plot twists. Family of Four can be a pretty cool card. It grants +1/+1 to any target character for each member of the Fantastic Four (the original ones) that you control. So, thats a potential +4/+4 in a regular game, or even more if you can find some way to smuggle extra copies of a member into play. And it doesn't specify attacking or defending character, so its any character.

Sealed: 1/5 I really don't know what this set looks like, but I'd be inclined to believe that you won't get many copies of the FF in play, making this card useless.

Constructed: 4/5 In a FF deck, this card can add some serious punch.

Much has changed since the last Mortal Kombat Tournament. The dark forces of Outworld have begun invading the Earth realm. These attacks are seriously weakening Earth's dimensional fabric. Allowing not only Outworlders to enter the Earth realm but warriors from other domains as well. Only the most extraordinary warriors could possibly meet this challenge…


Dun, dun, dun…

Tonight’s episode: Family of Four



Hey kids. Did ya like that? I betcha did.


Recently I uncovered a stone tablet buried deep within the Himalayas and it said that according to an ancient prophecy there will one day be a new Marvel set for the game of VS. But unlike the new DC set there is a possibility, a chance however remote, a lone snub fighter versus the Death Star kinda chance, that people might actually give a damn about it.


See what I did there?


This card is from that set. It gives a character +1/+1 for every member of the real fantastic four (That’s Reed, Sue, Johnny & Ben. Not replacement losers like She Hulk) that you control. That means you can get…hmm..carry the seven…+4/+4!!! Which is pretty cool. Also it’s new.  




You can go now.
