MetaX TCG – Batman Preview #1

Oh boy, oh boy! Spoiler season has started again, and this time its the Dark Knight and the rest of Gotham’s fabled heroes and villians to bring their flavour to the game. We have a total of 19 previews to bring you over the next two weeks before the full set reveal before release at the end of June.

First up, we have a look at some cards that fit nicely with the Bat Family reveals on the Panini Games blog earlier this week.

This amazing 6 Intelligence Battle Card starts things off nicely to fit in with some of the strategies we’ve seen around manipulating the top or bottom of a players deck.

Being a defensive card, this can help nicely as you could set up a few things like draw effects from other battle cards played after this card, potential VP you have to take from successful attacks after this defense, or setting up your next draw phase for a handy card to swing the game your way.

You’re also able to send those cards to the bottom of your deck, which could mitigate bad draws if those 5 cards weren’t to your taste, or set up for cards that like to draw from the bottom of your deck.

Surprise Visit then gives you a new way to gain knowledge of your opponent’s hand, and giving a different extra effect than the similar Set 1 card, Echolocation.

If you have set up your deck for draws with some of the Bat Family effects, you’re probably more interested in a +1 in hand than denying your opponent a card in hand. And at -1 MP, the cost is a lot more efficient than Echolocation as well.

Value for effect on events is certainly a feature of this new set, and Entangled is no exception. The low MP cost is offset by having to push your own character to target your opponent for a pushed character as well, but there are certainly lots of ways to play around that for your advantage.

Some of the Green Lantern cards can help you prep the character again during your Planning step. You also have options from Attack on Titan for some of the Scout Regiment cards, or Battle Cards to prep the characters again for use later on.

So if your opponent gets too aggressive with their attack phase and leave only one defender open, this card could come well and truly in handy.

And we round out today’s previews with a powerful new rare event.

Death in the Family can help with your character management at the right times to help free up space on your board, and potentially net you between 4 to 7 extra MP as well. That is fantastic value in any ones book. If you’re teaming this with meaty events like those you need in Titan decks, you can get your tempo going with more consistency with this sweet event.

We’ll be back in a few days with four more previews to get you pumped for Batman, releasing late June!
