xstreamzero Madame Xanadu

Another one of those no brainer cards…

Madame Xanadu
Activate > If Madame Xanadu is in play, search your deck for a Magic plot twist card, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck. Put Madame Xanadu on the top of your deck.

If you play Shadowpact, and more importantly their broken magic plot twists, you play Madame Xanadu. If you don’t play magic plot twists, don’t play Madame Xanadu. Simple as that, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Modern Age: 4/5
Silver Age: 4/5
Golden Age: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

Honestly, there’s no reason to review these kinds of cards…

Witchfire, Rebecca Carstairs (Shadowpact)

4 cost, 8 ATK, 6 DEF, Flight, Range

Willpower 3

Whenever Witchfire stuns a character and you have 25 or less endurance, gain endurance equal to that characters cost.

This looks like a pretty fun card... I don't know much about the Infinity Crisis set, but I do know from Green Lanters that Willpower is one of my favorite things ever (Oa and Uppercut!!)

Her stats are about average for a 4 cost (7/7 is average), but Flight/ Range and Willpower 3 helps. Her ability is pretty cool. If she stunns a character and you are at 25 or less, you can endurance equal to the stunned characters cost. Sure, this may only only net you 3 or 4 at a time, but if she is team attacking, you can get 7 or 8 if you are lucky. And that adds up over time. Fun fun. Oh, yes... RK Post is one of my favorite artists... so this card gets bonus points cuz she is hot and well drawn. :D

Sealed: 3/5 Could be fun....

Constructed: 3/5 Solid.
Si Madame Xanadu <> Cartomancer
Cost 1

Hi kids, I hope you’re enjoying “impossible intros” week as much as we are at pojo, i.e. not at all. As the smart ones amongst you might have guessed, none of the cards we are looking at this week have anything that could help towards a decent introduction. Not in the slightest.

I’d even take reviewing Demon Slayer again at this point.

Anyways Madame Xanadu is a searcher for any plot twists with the “Magic” Tag. And is hence a key character for Shadowpact. As you’ve noticed Xanie’s effect requires activation, but not discarding, which is good for a searcher. But after her effect is used Xanie goes to the top of your deck, which can be good or bad depending on how you play it.

For example you can search for Conjuration with Xanie, then next turn use it to pay for Xanie and then lather rinse and repeat, until you have the low, low endurance that Shadowpact requires to gain its special abilities.

Or you could just get Spectral Slaughter and pitch Xanie to pay its cost and kill swarm deck’s in their ugly, ugly little faces.

Or whatever.

Good card.

Sealed: 3
Constructed: 4
