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. Want to know what I have here…

“Dude seriously, who the hell has Occult as their last name? Did he get it changed from like Richard Spooky Von Weirdness III or something? Seriously Occult, what the heck?”

That was my best. See what I mean by “impossible intros” week.

And thus…

Dr O gets his stats pumped to 9/9 if you have the magical 25 or less endurance that gets Shadowpact all hot and bothered. If you have less than 10 endurance you are going to lose the game, but he gets another +1/+1, so there’s that. Without flight or range his attack options are limited without using plot twists, so there’s that too. Finally there is a boost cost of 2 allowing you to put Rose Psychic into play, assuming she isn’t already on the field.

As pojo’s funniest, prettiest and most awesome reviewer pointed out before, Rose Psychic isn’t all that great on turn 3 and Shadowpact has better options on 6 than Rose and Dr O. So boost is out.

Due to Shadowpact’s lack of awesome 4 drop character that aren’t called June Moon you could maybe have this guy as the second stringer 4 drop of choice.

I did say maybe.

Sealed: 2
Constructed: 3

There we go, that’s better…

Dr. Occult
Richard Occult
While you have 25 or less endurance, Dr. Occult gets +2 ATK / +2 DEF and an additional +1 ATK / +1 DEF if you have 10 or less endurance.
Boost 2: When Dr. Occult comes into play, if you don’t control Rose Psychic, search your deck for a card named Rose Psychic, put it into your front row, and shuffle your deck.

This is Shadowpact’s four drop of choice. While you usually play June Moon on turn 3 (with Conjuration), it is interchangeable with Dr. Occult. Generally, playing that Conjuration will drop you down to 25 endurance, meaning that you can have a 9/9 on turn 3 or turn four. That’s scary bad.

But one more thing to notice is that he’s not team stamped. Which is great, because a 9/9 four drop is great in a Kree Deck, if you’re thinking what I’m thinking…

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

Very nice…
