The Attack On Titan previews keep rolling in, and some of the potential combos shown by the Scout Regiment on the Panini Games blog are certainly catching attention.
In the first two sets of MetaX, healing VP has been something that isn’t focused on when it comes to deck building. You might have found a use for the odd Doctor Fate in decks that used Rank 7 special cards or you could have swapped the VP using Slight of Hand, but otherwise when you’ve taken a VP you had to chalk it up as a lost card. But now there are some nice Attack On Titan cards that bring the strategy a little closer to mainstream.
Machinations comes at a cost that is creeping towards the higher end of the scale for Events, but it allows you to directly reduce one of your opponents VP, and puts that card into your discard pile which can be a handy place to fetch cards from with other effects.
It also means that you need to max out your rank 7 intelligence cards in deck, so you’ll have to be looking at characters like Batman and Lex Luther from Justice League, or Black Hand and Atom from Green Lantern. But there are some nice Intelligence 7 battle cards to choose from.
Like this new one from Attack On Titan.
It’s low cost is a huge plus, but you do need to be using the card defensively to gain its benefit. The effect can be quite handy for more control type builds that might lean on healing VP strategies, by allowing you to clear one of the defenders your opponent has ear marked for your next turn. So teamed with Machinations, you could get a nice 2 VP swing in two turns.
Another Rank 7 Battle card that you could add to this strategy could be this Special 7 as well.
Batman UR from Justice League becomes the most ideal character if you are going to be using these cards in an overall strategy.
So don’t let your opponents VP get you down anymore. If you’re keen to get them a little disheartened in a match, healing your VP has become a little more attainable once Attack On Titan releases later this month.
Check out more previews again over the coming days.
