Greetings Fellow Dice Fans!

I wanted to play a team I hadn't played in a little while, so I dug out my Two-Face team and decided to see what I could do to improve upon it.

You can find my team here, on DM Retrobox.

This team is not a very well thought out team. When I originally built it, I put all the cards I liked at the time into one team. I threw in some control with the Elf Thief; utility with Beholder, Blue-Eyes, Professor X, Red Dragon, and Ring; and my only win condition being Two-Face. The reason I put Clay Golem on the team was for a blocker and a way to KO my Elf Thief and Beholder dice without have to use Blue-Eyes. Anger Issues is there for the Global and also if I need Overcrush. Polymorph is there primarily for its Global, but is also a viable purchase if needed. Two-Face is an extremely lethal force if you can get several of him in play before the rush teams take you out.

I got to go first against Vicious Struggle which is a huge advantage. I used Red Dragon to purchase one of her VS dice on my first turn. She was able to purchase the next one, leaving me the last one. Having purchased two of her VS dice, it put her a very big disadvantage. I used the Vicious Struggle dice for energy instead of the Action, which helped me buy multiple Two-Face dice and a Beholder over the next two turns. I built up a large dice pool in my Prep Area, then hoped for as many Fist Energy as possible. Buying the two VS dice helped win me this round. My opponent played to the very best of her ability, but Two-Face overwhelmed her with his ability. She's been working on this team for a while now, and I am very confident that if she had gone first, she would have been able to defeat me.

Record after Round One: 1-0-0

I'm always worried when I see Flying Ninjas. I know how lethal a team like this can be. I took a huge risk on a few turns and played the Lottery, since my opponent brought it. I won the Lottery a few times and was able to soften my opponent up. My opponent had a huge field presence and attacked to take my life total to single digits. It wasn't quite enough though. I fielded multiple Two-Face dice and attacked for lethal. I got to go first in this round as well.

Record after Round Two: 2-0-0

I went second against my round three opponent. I knew I was in trouble when he had several Guy Gardner dice and I hadn't been able to field my first Two-Face. My opponent made quick work of me and was able to secure his victory and take first place in the event. I have to say something else about my opponent that I feel should be mentioned. He's a young player and has only played in two or three events overall. Each event, he's placed well, and now he's won his first one.

All of our newer players are exceeding my expectations by leaps and bounds. They are all growing as players and team builders and I look forward to seeing their further improvement and continued victories!

Record after Round Three: 2-1-0
Final Standing: 3rd


Final Thoughts

I really love Two-Face, Double Deal and I want to make him work - very desperately make him work. I feel like adding Parallax in place of the Clay Golem would definitely improve the team. I wanted to make Nova work and found a way. I feel like I can make Two-Face work, I just have to find that right combination of cards. I feel Two-Face has huge potential, and I may be going about it the wrong way. I have four dice on his card, but usually only buy one or two of them and use Anger Issues to increase his attack. I'm starting to think I need to be buying all of them and replace Anger Issues with Resurrection. I will certainly be doing more testing with Two-Face, and maybe the Green Arrow/Flash set will have something I can use to help the team!

What are some changes you'd make without changing the spirit of the team?
