With all the talk of homogeneity of the team lists that were present in this year's Worlds. I thought it would be helpful to provide a post to summarize the usages of different actions/non-basic actions/characters.

Here are the characters and non-basics.

    I don't see why Oracle: Master Investigator is so popular. The vastly superior version is clearly Oracle: Hacker. What makes it better is that your opponent will never have enough energy to buy his big character dice because he'll be using it all to always rebuild his defense from you KO'ing his weaker characters every turn. Master Investigator only slows your opponent down while Hacker completely shuts them down.

    If you are rolling 10 dice (thanks to PXG) and one of them is Elf-Thief, Hacker doesn't stop you really. Master Investigator (especially with Elf-Thief) prevents your opponent from using PXG to ramp and to get his early buys.

    Hey Bankholdup - Thanks for noticing I was missing :-) ! Easy to understand can't say I made much of a splash the final day! But I had a great time running a nail biter of a team that usually fought to the bitter end. Much fun even in defeat. For your final tally I ran - Kryptonite (Green Death), Elf-Thief (Lesser Harper), Oracle (Master Investigator), Constantine (Hellblazer), Breaker the Magical Warrior (Mana Break), Dwarf Wizard (Paragon Zhentarim), Professor X (Trainer), Ultraman (Kryptonite-Powered). Actions were Imprisoned and The Front Line.

    Thanks man. I added your list. I probably just missed you because you must have been the last one to register and sit down.

    I think I'm still missing a couple. I'll doublecheck when I get home from work.
