• Guardians Super Rares


    Now that we finally have all four super rares spoiled (on the day of the release!) we thought we'd offer a quick synopsis article.


    Angela (image courtesy Dice Tower) comes with the text,

    "Infiltrate. While Angela is active, your character dice with Infiltrate cannot be blocked and deal no combat damage."

    Considering @flexei informed us that Infiltrate triggers prior to the global window, Angela means guaranteed Infiltrate damage every turn. Could get pretty mean pretty fast, especially with the next card...

    Captain America (image courtesy WK) has the text,

    "While Captain America is active, your Sidekick dice gain +1D and Infiltrate."

    Now every sidekick die has extra staying power and they could be dealing 1 damage every turn without leaving the field with SR Angela.

    Norman Osborn has the text,

    "When fielded, Norman Osborn deals 1 damage to your opponent for each Villain character die in the Field Zone (yours and your opponent's)."

    Norman Osborn has already been affectionately named "Nobby" for obvious comparisons to Gobby from AVX. We think it's pretty clear how good this card will be in modern, but also how much more balanced it is than Gobby was. Nobby has a lot of potential, but you have to build around him and account for new cards like Wonder Woman, The Kyln, and Madame Masque. Also, incredibly thematically, Spider-Man: Unmasked stops Nobby cold.

    Star-Lord (image courtesy DDK) rounds out the batch with text,

    "While Star-Lord is active, your other Guardians character dice gain Call Out."

    Call Out looks to be a pretty fantastic ability for targeted removal and overcrush. Star-Lord nicely rounds out the Guardians affiliation - expect to see some contender teams to unseat the Teen Titans on the affiliation throne.



    That's it for the regular Super Rares from Guardians. How's your pack luck been? Did you figure out an awesome combo we missed?

      Harsh. Did you at least get 5 foil rares?

      Yeah...the Collector and Nova Prime among them-which look awesome in foil.

      I'm hoping we see more Marvel Knights soon so we can make a complete team. An MK Elektra and Ally Foggy would be cool-especially if they built off of Punisher Sorcerer Supreme's ability somehow.
