Welcome to yet another exclusive preview for the forthcoming VS. System TCG expansion – Marvel Evolution. This week we’re looking at the Marauders and we’ve got an interesting plot twist to cover. Once again the writers of The-Kamiza.com band together to give you our thoughts on the card below:
Hi all,I have something a little different for you all this week. I’m going to talk a bit about how I’m currently tuning a deck in preparation for Game 08 in Manchester. I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot, and plan on just putting down my thoughts as they come to me. I hope to be quite detailed and not to be too boring. In any case I can write about the actual tournament next week, so that will be much more interesting.
First things first though, don’t forget that I have a competition running from my last column. I need a name for me (roughly) weekly writings and I’m asking any of you who read this. And whoever suggests the name I end up choosing gets free cards! Check out last week’s article for details.
But for now you will have to put up with me discussing the various advantages of Eric O’Grady over Deadpool. Enjoy.
Last time I was here I brought you the Cyclops preview card, ‘Fearless Leader’. This week I bring you another Cyclops (and another Scott)… Alan Scott. I’m stretching a little because Alan has recently gotten his missing eye back via the power of the Starheart, but a freak teleportation accident with Adam Strange’s technology during one of the million crisis events left him one eye short of… something with two-eyes. This was most recently represented in his Checkmate version, ‘White King’, that shared a ‘lose-the-game’ condition with Ahmed, Maxwell Lord, and a much inferior Harry Stein.
Welcome to another pair of exclusive previews for the Vs. System TCGs forthcoming Marvel Evolution expansion. This week’s theme is Cable and X-Force and we’ve already seen some great stuff. Ben Seck previewed new versions of Cable and Domino as well as Born to Run on the official Facebook page. Yesterday Paul Sung treated us to Techno-Organic Virus. That was not the lot yesterday though as the guys over at Read/Rant gave us X-23 and In the Cross Fire. That brings us to today. Brian Herman will be posting a preview today over at , but you’re not here for everyone else. You’re here for The-Kamiza.com’s preview. I’ve been spoilt over the years with the amount of cards I’ve had to preview, so I’m going to hand over the reigns to my co-contributors on The-Kamiza.com
The Modern Manchester tournament at Game ’08, and I am in charge of making 3 decks.
We had our local Clone Saga event on Sunday. I played a modified version of my Black Bolt deck, and 5-0′d. For my troubles I won a Hellboy Essential Collection, the first I have managed to get.
This is relevant, not because I like to big up the Black Bolt. But because it allowed me to teach someone the game.
Welcome back to Pyrahmancy! Lets burn some words!
With all the different constructed formats around in Vs nowadays it can be hard to have a deck for every occasion. What if you’ve had to take a week or two out from hobby league and don’t know what the format will be when you return? What if you get mixed up or confused? Surely no one wants to be in a situation where they don’t have a legal deck!
With this in mind and in the interests of traveling light (and in so doing protecting the world by reducing carbon emissions) I thought I would try and construct Vs System’s most legal deck. The constraints for this will then be:
1. It must be playable in modern age (and hence also silver and golden).
2. It must be playable in Random Punks (no Rares).
3. It must be playable in “Build a Legend” (contain 12 Legendary cards).
4. It must be playable in “Bring your own set” (consist of cards from only one expansion).
5. It must be playable in “Bring your own team” (only contain cards that reference one team or no teams)
6. It must stand a chance of winning a game.
Following Steve’s brilliant example, I put the preview card at the top of the page. This particular preview card is near and dear to my heart. Not only have I always wanted to unveil a preview card for Upper Deck, but I’ve particularly wanted the card to be a Cyclops or Green Lantern Card. Not too long ago our own community created a fantasy set called DC Universe, and was kind enough to let me preview a couple of Hal Jordan cards. Now the other half of my dream is coming to fruition.
I’ve been writing these previews long enough to know that most of you wont read the following article. The majority will just look at the card art and run off to spread the news, so I’ll say nothing more on this page, but if you are interested in my views on the card and future potential, then click the link to read more!
