There’s been a flood of new previews in the last week, all helping build to the release of the first expansion of MetaX; Green Lantern. Today we’ll be looking at some cards that help marry up to a few of the other previewed cards that have been seen to help build some synergy in your deck building thoughts leading into set 2.
First, we have Green Lantern – Abin Sur. Like in the comics, Abin Sur forms a great partnership with the already previewed Green Lantern – Tomar-Re. By allowing you to access push effects the turn characters enter play, you could take advantage of Green Lantern’s like Tomar-Re straight away. It’s good to note, that this effect doesn’t extend to cards that have “Green Lantern” as a name, but only as a trait, which is denoted by the use of Italics when referencing Green Lantern’s in the power.
He generates a significant amount of MP, which is a huge plus for his. And his stats allow him to access some powerful Intelligence Battle Cards to supplement your Green Lantern strategies.
The event card previewed today can help you get rid of some of your opponent’s potential targets for things like Coming Storm that was recently previewed, or some deck archetypes like the Blue Beetle decks in Justice League. The great thing about the card is it is an “up to” effect, so you can choose 0 to allow the draw effect to work. In a pinch, you could also use it on yourself to gain some valuable cards back to potentially draw later at the cost of allowing your opponent an extra card in hand.
We also have this sweet Strength Battle card to preview today. While it is a low rank Battle Card, it just oozes value for a wide range of deck archetypes. Drawing two cards for the cost of 1 MP is a massive plus, and while you won’t be getting many KO’d directly with the card, it gives your opponent a dilemma if they are to defend it when used as an attack. You could also use it on defense to help you dig for some valuable cards to help you in a pinch.
And finally, a nice addition to some new Green Lantern Team Attack focused decks. This Strength Battle Card gains you access to the hugely beneficial effect of linking for a Team Attack at a 0 MP cost. You can even use the effect to link a character to the one using this card. At a rank of 6, that could give you a very tricky total of 13 for your opponent to defend with. Only the likes of rank 7 Characters using rank 7 battle cards would be able to get around that type of Team Attack!
Check back next week for some more great previews from Green Lantern!
