3 cost 6/4
adjacent to Captain America have the Avengers
adjacent to Captain America get +1 attack.
This week we pay
tribute to the greatest patriot in the Marvel
universe, Captain America. Cap was first
released in the avengers set, but has shown up
as a skrull imposter and a spider friend so far
in his cardboard incarnations. Captain America,
Steve Rogers has good stats for a three cost
character. It is always nice to see a 6 in the
attack and 4 defense isn’t too shabby. His first
ability to give the Avengers affiliation is very
valuable in avengers sealed, and I believe is
the better of his two abilities. Giving team
attackers +1 attack isn’t ground breaking, but
could help in a pinch. Cap doesn’t have any
tricky combos that go with him, just solid stats
and a helpful ability. His stacker art with Iron
Man, Tony Stark is pretty cool too.
Overall if you are
playing an Avengers deck with a leader theme Cap
is your man, though Avengers are known better
for their reservist decks. Try out a
Thunderbolts / Avengers leader deck running 4
Justice for all and see if you rethink your
opinions about the leader mechanic.
out of 5, Cap is right at the average I believe,
not overpowered but by no means bad.
Sealed: 3.0 out of
5, His stock goes up a little in sealed because
his ability to team up others.
