• World's Finest Full Set Review



    So over the course of the last several weeks, we went over basically all the cards in the set and had one of our staff give you their thoughts on them. What we're going to do now is give you multiple viewpoints on each card, with a numeric rating on each. This is something that we used to do on our Podcast (though it was extremely time-consuming), and used to be done on one of the other excellent DiceMasters fan sites, DiceAnon. Hopefully they'll do one for this set as well, as they have for many of the other sets, but they seem to have been lacking on content recently so we figured we could try this.

    Disclaimer: We've only had a few days to play with these cards, so please don't take these as the final be-all, end-all for the set. Please take these with a grain of salt, and if/when you have a different opinion tell us in the comments! For another perspective, one of our very active bloggers Necromanticer has also put up a full set numerical review HERE. Please check it out along with many other excellent community entries in our Blog section.

    Without further ado, here are the ratings. We used a basic 5 point scale, and rated each card for both draft utility and unlimited constructed utility. Four of our staff (Shadowmeld, Flexei, theconductr, and OddballNarwhal) provided ratings and some random comments, and here you will find all of them along with an overall average for each card.

    Here we go!

    Constructed

    Shadowmeld: 2 4
    Flexei:
    Expensive, but a good way to clear walls. While not terribly useful, there's something oddly thrilling about drawing this with the uncommon Joker trigger.

    [top]Kryptonite Threat

    Draft
    2.33
    Constructed
    1.67
    Shadowmeld: 1 1
    Flexei:
    If you're limited to WF BAs in draft, there are VERY few other potential ramp options. Can also potentially get damage through in a set that tends to wall up.

    Almost purely useful for the Global. Can be looked at as a die that always gives you at least 1 energy for buying.

      Nice job! Big thanks for doing this. I'd love to see more comments added though. One of the things I loved about DiceAnon's reviews was there were comments on nearly every card that helped explained why it was good/bad or middle of the road.
      Maybe you could consider adding them as time goes on so it's not so much work all at once?

      If this didn't satisfy you, I have a comment for each and every rating on my own set review, though I only have my own voice and values to judge with.

      Thanks for the suggestion! We will definitely try to add more comments in the future and/or update our suggestions/ratings as the set marinates in the meta for a while.

      Having FINALLY having had a chance to draft WF, I would like to revise my rating for the common Carmine Falcone. He is certainly a strong 4 in draft. He has the stats, cost, and ability of a "must draft" character.

      Not a problem, should have been explained more

      The general game rule from the Rulebook is that effects can only target dice that are in the Field Zone, unless explicitly instructed otherwise by the card text. The AvX Magneto Global allows you to "reroll a Villain die", and was ruled on WKRF to be able to also reroll dice in the Reserve Pool.

      If the Rulebook stands, the Brave Sacrifice Global will only be able to target SK dice in the field, which means it will only functionally be able to target Ally characters (who count as Sidekicks in the Field, and have multiple levels). If it is ruled like Magneto, the above would be true, but you would ALSO be able to affect SK dice in the Reserve Pool on energy faces, and spin them to character faces on level 1 (but not Ally characters in the Reserve Pool, since they aren't considered SKs yet).

      My very favorite thing about these sorts of reviews is the variability we see with some of the cards. I mean, sometimes you have a common Vixen that just sucks, no matter what, but most of the time there are other cards where someone sees something in them that others don't, and it's those cards that have an outlier or two that always make me sit up and take notice.

      For instance, I actually like the UC Lex Luthor a lot. In draft, he was my form of removal - force their problem guy to attack, and then just let it on through. Definitely worth the 1 life to send it to the Used Pile, especially in draft.

      I'm also curious about Bruce Wayne: International Playboy. I don't have the card yet, but assuming that the second part of the ability would still activate even if the first wasn't satisfied (i.e., even if you didn't have a Batman to pull from bag/Used), this seems like it could be ripe for some shenanigans. Ping off a sidekick during your attack step, now you get to take control of your opponents lvl 1 Hulk?

      Lastly, Necromanticer: ABL! Always Be Linking! I know it only takes a two or three clicks to get to your review, but often times anything more than one is too much. If you linked your review in your comment, I think a lot more people would click through and benefit from yet another point of view.

      Ah, so it is - but of course, in my zeal to consume the meat of the content, I had zipped past that opening paragraph.
