• WizKids Wednesday: Green Arrow and Flash, Part 2


    Another week goes by and we're another week closer to the release of Green Arrow and Flash. Last week's video left us with 5 unopened packs, and without too much further adieu, it's time to dive into those! Last week we got our first look at Crossover characters, Synergy, and Impulse. What firsts will we have this week? A foil? A Crosspulse ability? Any sign of a SR? Or even a rare?

    Big thanks go out to WizKids for providing these packs for review.

    This week we open our last five packs, as well as do a quick bit of draft analysis with the first 6 packs. Stay tuned, because coming soon, we've got a first look at the Dr. Strange Teampack!

      As a semi casual player (and one on a budget) I don't have the Babs SR and I'm very excited to see this version of Batgirl for constructed play. She shuts down one of my local opponent's favorite win condition: the "neener, neener" Spider-Man that demands every dice hit him, leaving an open field for a pounding. There are things like one version of Superman and Blink Dog that ignore the effect. but I think this is pretty useful for a 4 pt card, especially if you were already thinking about Bat Family teams. Great review, thanks again.

      Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that Batgirl won't help you against that Spider-Man. His ability does not target so everyone would still have to block him. Similarly, the Storm: Goddess of the Plains that rerolls ALL of your opponent's dice when she attacks would still happen and force a full reroll, but Storm: Wind Rider and African Priestess DO target and would be stopped.

      As you said, there are some other ways around the effect, but sadly Batgirl is not one of them.

      Well Poop. (But thanks for telling me.)
