Wow...500 reviews, that's a lot of words about a
lot of cards. We're digging into the longbox for
today's card and looking at one of the iconic
villains of the comic book world: Magneto.
Magneto's Hellfire Club version is a really
powerful card, and a game-ender if done right.
Play Sebastian Shaw on 5, get a counter or two
on him, then drop Magneto hidden on 6. Attack
with Shaw into their 6 drop, then swap him to
the hidden area to make Magneto visible, use
Magneto to stun Shaw and stun their 4 drop. Then
swing Magneto into their 5 and essentially lock
up the game. It's a play that put me out of the
money at 10K Austin, and it's one of the
strategies that makes Hellfire Club such a
Hopefully they get a refeature in Marvel
Universe, they have a lot of fun tricks for solo
play, or for team-up decks.
It's been a great 500 reviews, and here's hoping
that you all stick around for 500 more. Thanks
Yeah, they need to bring back
Hellfire Club. It was one of the coolest teams I
never played with…
Flight and Range
Stun a character you control >
Stun target character if its cost is less than
the cost of the character you stunned. Use this
power only once per turn and only if Magneto is
your only visible character.
I’m not gonna talk about his
Hellfire Club applications. I like him better as
my Six drop in the Magneto Legend Deck. Think
about it. Magneto 3,4,5,6,7 and 8, all there for
my Crisis Build. And I can abuse all his cool
cards from Legends and use cards with his
picture on them like Finishing Move and Homo
Superior. Wouldn’t that be cool?
I’m beginning to wonder why no
one takes me as a serious reviewer…

Yay! Card 500!!!
At least, thats what the boss man told us. So,
yay for a milestone!
So, I'll make it short, as I'm running late.
Stats are average, concealed- optional is cool.
I've never been a big fan of diminishing
returns... unless your opponant has a REALLY
nasty lower cost character, why would you want
to stun one of your own characters? I mean,
normally, a 6 cost character is better than a 5
cost. Oh, well.
This card is
great. Too bad about his team, not really
shining as well as they could have. Oh well,
back to the point. He can go into the Hellfire
deck, of course. His effect is so good because
he can attack and then trigger his effect. His
effect is a trigger so be wary of that, if
you're going to use him. This is the 500th COTD,
so let's go out and celebrate with a day full of
Vs! I know I will.
