This Marvel Legends set has some glaring problems. Daredevil is one of them.

Daredevil
Fearless Survivor
Marvel Knights/2/2/2
Concealed/Range
Daredevil gets +3 ATK while in combat with a character with an opposing character with greater cost.

The problem with Marvel Legends is that not every card is playable. Well, okay, thatís true for every set, but Legends is more mediocre that spectacular. I understand that there are some great cards and great reprints, but the majority is riddled with cards like Daredevil.

Characters have a Concealed problem, for starters. All characters in Marvel Legends are either Concealed or Visible, never Concealed Ė Optional. Thatís just super lame, because now you have to rethink every hidden character you play from Marvel Legends. On a side note, every single equipment in Marvel Legends has Concealed Ė OptionalÖ

But back to Daredevil. Heís so lackluster, itís not even funny. 2/2 for 2 is horrible. Black Panther is a 2/2 for 1. The fact that he HAS to be concealed means that you canít even get a defensive pump from him.

Secondly, his effect is he gets +3 ATK against higher costs. So he has 5 ATK, and can take out some 3 drops. And canít attack any other characters. Because heís lame like thatÖ

Sealed: 2/5
Constructed: 1/5

Now that I think about it, most of the low drops are seriously underpoweredÖ

Daredevil, Fearless Survivor (Marvel Knights)

2 cost, 2 ATK, 2 DEF, Range

Concealed

Dardevil gets +3 ATK while in combat with an opposing character with greater cost.

I'm pretty sure I've said it before, but I really like the new look of the cards in this set.  Lets see... Mr. Daredevil here is a 2/2 for 2, which is pretty standard fare.  He gets +3 when in combat with a higher cost character.  Lets think for a sec... the average 3 cost character is a 3/4, so this isn't too bad.  The average 4 cost character is a 7/7.  So, unless you have other plot twists that you want to throw on this guy who will almost definitely get stunned, he's only going to be useful for two turns.  Of course, since his ability is 'in combat', this makes your opponent have to work about around him.  Over all, not a bad 2 drop.  Not great, but not bad either. 

Sealed:  4/5  He's cheap, has ranged, and he can make the game much harder for your opponent.  On top of that, unless I'm mistaken, he's common.  So you've got a good shot of getting multiple copies in sealed.

Constructed: 2/5  Not my favorite 2 drop for the Marvel Knights, but still not an awful card in general.
jajais4u Daredevil - Fearless Survivor. 2 Drop. 2/2. Range. Concealed. This effect is actually good. He can attack that 3 drop, and probably stun it. He can attack that four drop with a substantial pump, and it looks at the table. He can go in a weenie rush or straight curve. I really like the concealed. Nice touch.

Sealed - 4.0 (He helps "cross attacks" (attacks where one character attacks up the curve and another one down) a lot. Also helps that he's hiding in the shadows, waiting to say "hi".

Concealed (heh), I mean Constructed - 4.0 (He will punch that three drop in the face. Iím pretty sure of it.)

Daredevil, Fearless Survivor

This version of Daredevil is great for all formats.

He's a 2/2 for 2 (which is small) that becomes a 5/2 when attacking anything cost 3 or higher. He also gets the bonus if he's attacked too, although since he's hidden that won't be too often. He combos well with Dark Alley, since his natural bonus, plus the DEF pump from the Alley makes him on par with most 3's.

Great in Limited play too, since he can be underdropped on 3 without hurting too much.

3.5/5
_Si They made a film about Daredevil. It had Ben Affleck in it. Ben Affleck is friends with Matt Damon. The words Matt Damon are funny.

Thatís our intro for today.

Daredevil <> Fearless Survivor: Cost 2: Range: Concealed: Marvel Knights

When DD is in combat with a higher cost character he gets +3 attack. So thatís good. Basically youíve got a 5 attack 2 drop you can kamikaze into your opponents 3. And if heís still around later on he makes for a nice team attacker.

DD is concealed and like all concealed characters heís not really going to be attacked. Thatís a bonus for low level characters because you donít have to worry about leaving them unprotected (Unless your opponent is sneaky). And it fits with the whole Knights theme.

Iíd suggest you pimp up Daredevil with some equipment like a katana or guns so he can really go nuts attacking up the curve and taking out higher characters.

Thatís all I got.

Matt Damon.

Sealed: 4
Constructed: 3
