about missing Wednesdays card... its been a

1 cost Plot Twist
Target character has flight this turn. While
attacking this turn, that character gets +3 ATK.
Ah, harkening back to the good old days of Doom/
Gamma Bomb and New Brotherhood decks... Sentinal
Curve, and Sentinel Throw Up (Curve is one'a my
all time favorite decks, BTW). Flying Kick is an
excellent stand-by card. 1 cost for +3 ATK is
solid. And adding Flying is just an added bonus.
I'm one of the guys that can't afford to buy a
ton of cards, so I run with commons alot in
place of some of the bigger chase rares. This
card right here takes the place of the Savage
Beatdowns that I don't have. In sealed, if you
get a Flying Kick, you will most likely play it.
Its good. In constructed, its a cheap fast
boost. Early game, it can be crazy cool.
Suddenly my 1/2 becomes a 4/2 Flight, and your
little 1/1 is Pwnzed... take 3 breakthrough. YAY!
Sealed: 5/5 Play it. You'll be happy.
Constructed: 4/5 A solid card for most straight
forward "I wanna hurt you" decks. Sure, there
are other cards you can play, but Flying Kick is
easy to get, reliable, and just plain cool... I
mean, c'mon! Its Iron Fist!
As a small note, this card has Errata on it. It
now can only target YOUR character. Flying Kick
was abused with Overload to kill many turn 1 and
2 characters. In a 'New Brotherhood' deck, this
would open the way early on for some serious
hurts. Of course, any other deck could abuse it
too, but I was playing against a New Brotherhood
deck when I first saw it happen. It hurt. Alot.
Target character has flight this turn.
While attacking this turn, that character gets
Dude seriously what do you expect me to say
about Flying Kick? It gives you turn long flight
with +3 attack and it only has a cost of 1.
That’s all I got.
“You must learn the ways of the force if you are
to come with me to Alderaan”
This is an example of a good, decent plot twist.
Target character gets +3 ATK while attacking and
has flight this turn.
When you look at any attack pump, you always
compare it to Flying Kick. Always. It is better
that half the attack pumps out there, but it’s
also worse that half. If the attack pumps suck,
use Flying Kick. If you’ve got something better,
use that something better. There’s also that
added bonus of flight, so you’ll always be able
to attack any visible character with any one of
Marvel Modern: 3/5
