The original Silver Surfer…

Silver Surfer
Norrin Radd
Fantastic Four/8/19/19
At the start of the combat phase, you may discard a Fantastic Four character card. If you do, gain the initiative.

Firewood. Bad stats. Hard to make turn 8. Effect only works half the time. There are better 8 drops. It’s firewood.

In sealed, it’s okay for an 8 drop.

Constructed: 1/5
Sealed: 3/5

Bad Silver Surfer. Good thing Heralds made him better…

Silver Surver, Norrin Radd (Fantastic Four)

8 cost, 19 ATK, 19 DEF, Flight, Range

At the start of the combat phase, you may discard a Fantastic Four character card.  If you do, gain the initiative.

First of, I'd like to state that Beowolf looks simply AMAZING.

On to the card!

Um... holy crap?  Turn 8 can be hard to hit sometimes, but as with most 8 cost characters, if you can drop one and your opponant can't, they may as well just hand you the game.  Simply discard a character at the start of the combat phase and gain the initiative.

Sealed: 2/5  Not worth trying for, unless you are desperate for cards in your deck.

Constructed: 3/5  I'm not a huge fan of 8 cost characters, mostly because I"m used to decks that usually win by turn 6 or 7.  But as far as big guys go, Silver here is one of the best.  Taking the initiative every combat can be amazing.

The first real over-the-top eight drop, owner of the initiative, one of the reason's I played F4 for almost an entire year (it's true, until Fate Artifacts messed up a good thing), Silver Surfer, Norrin Radd. To tell you the honest truth, I like this guy. I think he's the perfect 8 drop. He actually forced the metagame to get faster. People scooped upon seeing him on eighth turn. Now that the intro is done, he's really good. He made Common Enemy over the top. He made Midnight Sons great. He made F4/Spider-friends/Marvel Knights/Gotham Knights great. He's the finisher (second to DJ Mister Cee). That's really it, still best eight drop in the game.

Sealed - 3 (You don't know if you'll have enough to pitch for it or if it will go that long.)

Constructed - 5 (This is not based on the meta, actually just based on the other eight drops out there. Apoc is good, but this guy takes the initiative from Apocalypse. Plus, he can be targeted by Clobberin' Time).
