As we roll into March, we are getting closer to the release of the next set of MetaX, Attack on Titan. Previews will start rolling out via the Panini Games website from Friday (US time), and then across fan sites and our page shortly after.
But before then, there are still some great cards from previous sets to keep an eye on as you start thinking about what you want to play next. This week we focus on Black Canary from the Justice League expansion.
As character effects become more dynamic with the greater card pool each set, effects like Black Canary’s become even more important.
She can fit into a range of different deck types; from control decks that might want to keep greater board presence, to mid-range or aggro decks that might want to keep some control effects in check. We saw this week’s deck tech on the Panini Games blog showcase a villian’s deck that focused on General Zod and Mr Freeze in a heavy control deck. Black Canary might give you an option to help combat those types of decks.
You can also splash her into decks as a supplement to Power Players from Green Lantern. Her greatest strength when thinking of her in this fashion is that you can complement her with bounce effects like Right on Target. Or team her with characters like Blue Beetle for some nice Rank 5 plays.
Her stat’s lend her more to support for more aggressive or mid-range decks that focus on Strength battle cards, but with 3 Intelligence, there are still some great battle cards especially from Justice League that she can access if needed.
This is one character that you might just run into once large organised play events start.
