Marvel Universe is approaching! Worlds will live, heroes will die, and the VS System will never be the same!
My favorite part of previews season is when someone accidentally gets shipped their cards too soon, and is able to spoil the set for the rest of us. This time around we are very grateful that our French VS. players (all three of them) are the ones who have been posting up MUN card text for the past two days. Thanks!
It should be no time at all before the USA receives their Marvel Universe boxes/cases (if they haven’t already) but until then let us salivate over what has been announced so far. Of course, my favorite cards so far have been the Crime Lords ones. Could the Red Skull legend be viable? Could the Red Skull Legend be totally freakin’ awesome?
|Red Skull, Aleksander Lukin – Raid
Leader: whenever an adjacent character defends, each opponent loses 2 endurance, and you gain 2 endurance.
|Red Skull, Master of Creation
Leader: At the start of the recovery phase, target opponent loses endurance equal to the combined cost of all adjacent characters.
Equip only to Red Skull
Exhaust equipped character, put cosmic cube on the bottom of its owner’s deck => search your deck for a card and put it into your hand.
Play only if you control Red Skull.
Whenever an opposing character becomes stunned this turn, gain endurance equal to its cost.
Okay, right off the bat I have to say that I’m in love with this deck already. Both the 3 and the 7-drop have very generous stats, and devastating leader abilities. Cosmic Cube is one of the best search cards in the game, and Radically Advanced promises to swing endurance totals in my favor even more. Plus, most of thes eards are common/uncommon, which is awesome.
While I love the five-drop Red Skull, I may have to skip him due to uniqueness/board presence issues. Of course, if the Crime Lords have even a few substitute characters then all bets are off. I’m very, VERY eager to see what the rest of the Crime Lords look like. Here’s hoping I get my cards today.
It’s about time someone show that smarmy Captain America who is really in charge!
