Preview Review :Skrullzzzzz Super Skrull World Champion

Yay new cards!!!!

PROS:

  • Art is just wicked
  • Discard a card for invunerabilty means if hes to become stunned ever you just pitch and wham take no damage. Sweet stuff.
  • He gets a mix of old and new getting one of the oldest mechanics (Evasion) Which seems like it’ll most likely be his most unused ability outside of sealed/draft.
  • Energize since we know what that is now makes it so he can burn for 6, force 2 replaced resources or make them discard 2 cards. Or even better a mixture of all of those.
  • The activated ability makes him even better since you can activate him to do nearly anything.Scroll to bottom to see what I mean.
  • Not loyal

Cons:

  • So many choices
  • Paibok still seems better in most traditional skrull decks.
  • All those affiliations and nothing for him to specifically do with them yet*wont be a con once set is made im sure)

Oh and if you were wondering what abilities he did steal well lets show them all.

Okay not really but I can;t for the life of me remmeber a card that does exactly this I think theres a darkseid elite char that does this but can’t remme who.

and of course.

Allrighty keep with me for more preview reviews!

    Well, not quite as good as Batman’s. You don’t get to choose the resource.

  2. You know, the more and more I look at him, the more OUT OF love I fall with him.

    Yes, he is very versatile, but versatile at what? How many of those abilities are actually ones of high usefullness?

    There are very few times I would want to evade my 5 drop ceterus-parabus, lest I be setting up some sort of combo such as venom burn. I have no idea what energize does yet.

    Invulnerability? Ok, I’ll give him that, that is useful.

    … but let’s look at the rest.

    Make them discard a card of their choice – future foes strategy? Burn them for 3 – not very powerful for a 5-drop activation. Make them replace a face-up resource of their choice … more likely to benefit them than anything else in most cases.

    Now in context of what he is, a skrull, his core useful abilities being non-agressive? No, he’s barely a skrull at all. And if you just to use him to get a billion team-affiliations to abuse with Ethan Edwards and Tarnax IV, TeenTitans/Outsider-Roy Harper with a Quantum bands + The Initiative does the job much better, and more importantly, much QUICKER.

    Is he still playable? Of course. Is his versatility still useful and of note? Sure … but I think he case #5028 of us getting to excited over seeing the new card.

    He’s not all that and a bag of chips. He’s no where near a bag of chips at all.
