7 Cost Spider Friends/ Avengers

16/14, Range, Reservist

Pay 3 Attack, target character you control gets +3 Def this turn. Use once per turn.

OK. First off, I'd like to state that I like Cap. I was saddened that he was killed. And I'm glad that all of his cards that I've seen havn't sucked royally. That out of the way...

I like this Cap alot. He's a 16/14 on turn 7, which is slightly higher than the norm, from what I've seen, and he's a reservist to boot. So, he won't be totally useless early in the game. I've gotta say, I really like Reservists, especially when they are higher cost. While this Cap doesn't have any leader effects like his 2 earliest incarnations ( I think...), his power still shows off his ability to keep ally's out of harms way. By reducing Caps attack by 3, you can give a character you control +3 def this TURN. Whole turn. Not just this attack, this TURN. This can be used on Cap himself, if need be. Also, it can be used at instant speed, unless I'm mistaken. This means that you can attack with Cap, deal with combat, and then attack with another character, lowering Caps Attack to give that character a +3 Def. The only drawback to this is that the -3 Attack on Cap lasts for the rest of the turn too. But sometimes, the best offense is a good defense.

All in all, I'd run this card as my turn 7 in my Avengers deck (assuming I had any copies of this Cap, which I now must get...). I'm not so sure about in a Spider Friends deck (lest you were also running the previously mentioned Indebted).

Good stats, nice ability, and reservist to boot... I like him. :)

Overal: 4/5
