Talk Meta To Me 01: No One Card Should Have All That Power - Green Arrow/Flash

Rate this Entry
A new set is here. Huzzah!

Given that the meta we live in has grown quite stale, the release of Green Arrow/Flash has been met with unbridled enthusiasm. The same people who decried the release schedule are now nothing but smiles and sunshine, eagerly opening their wallets and emptying them at furious rates at their local game dispensaries.. You can't blame them. When this meta came into being, the flowers were blooming and now those same flowers are crumpled and decaying. That which once smelled sweet, now smells fetid.

So let's see what our dice bearing overlords have given us, their ever faithful servants.

Whoa. What's this now? Check it out guys, we can get stuff out on turn 2. Why hasn't anyone been talking about this?

Obviously the impact of the global has been talked to death but take a look at the ability on the rare version.

This action would be phenomenal on meta teams that use Elf Thief and Bard. Roll it on the action face, enter the attack zone 😄, attacking with Bard and a variety of low cost characters and after blockers are assigned, use the action die to pump up whatever wasn't blocked (i.e. a sidekick).

You could also add this into a control mask ring team and actually be able to do some damage instead of playing the distraction game. It also gets sidekicks back into the used pile to PXG them, negating bag flooding abilities like Elf Wizard.

Even without the global, at a two cost, this card is pretty sweet.

Hello Bard and Front Line teams.

Three cost and she shuts down opposing sidekicks. How? I'm guessing, since she's an "Actual Doctor" she gives them doctor's notes and they call in sick from work. They stay home and eat tacos, shirtless while watching Seinfeld reruns until their significant others come home and upon viewing them, wonder where their lives got so derailed.
Maybe that's too personal.

Anyway, she's an actual Doctor and she'll keep you from getting a bad case of the turn threes, until your opponent buys, rolls and uses a Prismatic Spray, which erases Doctor Light's credentials and there you are, sick as a dog.

Seriously though it's a nice ability at a three cost but like any counter, it's vulnerable to Spray. Which just reinforces my belief that if any card should be banned, it should be Prismatic Spray.

Four cost. Has the ability to really mess with your opponents economy. I mean imagine if you bought a car and while tooting around in your new whip, you got into a little bit of a fender bender. You take it into get it fixed and they tell you it'll be a couple of days. You return, attired in your finest driving gloves and they tell you, "Uh your car is back at the dealer." As the shock registers on your face, he says, " Oh my mistake, I mean the car is back at the dealer. You don't have a car now. Here is a bus schedule."
That is what this card does.

Pair it with some removal like Hulk or some Dragons and you got yourself a stew, I mean, a good card.

Well that's it for this installment. I'm tired of typing.

I'm sure there are some other cards worth a mention. I would have mentioned some here but like I said, I'm tired of this and I want tacos now.
And if I have learned anything in life, it's that you can't eat tacos and type.

    Not sure what a whip is but good write up...

    And why are you putting our ideas on full display for everyone to see ? They were supposed to be surprises for the WKO... I mean no one else would have ever figured out good uses for these cards.... right?

    How is it possible that you're talking about these cards when you've never played before? 😏

    Haven't we though?
    I was under the impression that the community recognized this card as stupid powerful after it was first spoiled and considers it in the same tier as PXG and Big Entrance/Resurrection.

    After being reminded time ands again that I don't skim well, you'd think I'd kick the habit...
