5 is the highest rating.
First off I like the Syndicate feel of kill you
before I get killed. Answer ability is sick it
says pay X endurance and stun up the curve while
attacking. The first thing I thought of was team
up with Inhumans and between Karnak and Answer
stun the board play a KO effects and you win.
The endurance loss with Syndicate will add up
but you should have board advantage. The large
number of combat pumps in Marvel Team-up should
take some of the sting out. This is one of the
cards I really like. I would like to point out
that with all the ATK and DEF manipulation you
could be losing endurance for no reason!
Sealed 4/5 the stun any drop for a little life
doesn’t hurt. Shouldn’t see Answer to much if at
all since he’s rare though.
Constructed 4/5 like I said this guy says I get
board advantage which wins games.
2 cost Sinister Syndicate
Flight, 2 atk/2def
Whenever Answer attacks a character you may pay
X endurance, where X is that character’s DEF. If
you do, Answer gets +X ATK this attack.
We close out the week by looking at one of the
Syndicates heavy hitters in an off curve deck,
Answer. Syndicate will have a very strong off
curve team, usually featuring Carnage<>
psychopath as the highest drop character. Answer
gives you an option against larger characters
should the game run past turn 4. Paying 7
endurance to stun their 4 drop might seem a
little harsh, but remember it is going to save
you on card advantage as well as board
Answer can do the work of about 2 or 3 Two-cost
characters if he so feels.
Imagine playing an off curve deck and not being
able to draw into your mega blasts or flying
kicks. Answer gives you a searchable option to
drop and help clear the board. The endurance you
are paying your opponent will also be paying as
you attack them directly to the face after
Answer takes out their biggest character.
I like answer, he isn’t Loyal so he is very
splash able in off curve team decks. Ecpect to
see him popping up as a 1-of in many off curve
decks to come.
Sealed: 3.7 out of 5, only because drafting a
Syn-Sin off curve team in sealed takes a lot of
luck and skill
Constructed: 4.3 out of 5, Answer is strong, not
broken strong but strong none the less.
