    The linked little cup super sidekicks team has johnny storm in it instead of Aquaman. The podcast listed Aquaman. Not sure if the change was intentional, just letting you know.

    I think the link to Super Sidekicks (Little Cup) is wrong. It has rares and uncommons listed.

    Question about adjwctives and Nouns

    When a card references a Monster does that also means Villian? Is it synonymous with Character?

    Monsters in D&D is more of character type affiliation, and is not the same as a villain.

    @Shadowmeld and @RJRETRO .

    Re: final Justice League team challenge.

    My favourite three characters are Constantine, Zatanna, and Swamp Thing.

    Now, building a team around Constantine, or Zatanna?

    No problem!

    But, Swamp Thing?

    Oh, what did they do to you Swamp Thing!?

    So, please help.

    I need a Swamp Thing team!

    And if happens to also have the other mentioned two, well, that would be great!

    after having looked at the cards from a little cup perspective, I began to wonder if a "medium cup" might make for a more diverse meta. I realize that GG, HT, Storm, Lord of D-Ring, are all uncommon, but are there enough "other" quality uncommons to still make this a better format than commons only?

    Have you guys considered it?

    Oh, man! Great suggestion! I also would like to see a team with the Swamp Thing. I'll pitch the idea to Shadowmeld and see what he can do!

    We have! Little Cup is special, because it really restricts which cards you have access to. A common+uncommon is something I've thought about, but I'm not sure how feasible it is. At that point, Why not just use constructed?

    Not shooting it dead, just saying it's not in the immediate plans. Now an "Uncommon" tier by itself? That could be fun.

    Our FLGS runs what they term a Prince Format tournaments. This included Commons and Uncommons and restricts Rares, Super Rares, Promos, and Promo Basic Actions.

    Consider swapping Human Paladin for Dr Strange: Master of the Mystic Arts to do min 8 damage every time you fire off the beholder's ability. More apologies will be necessary.

    The paladin is needed to allow you to swing for lethal un- distractioned. Also, doing incidental damage, like Dr. Strange breaks imprisoned. That is entirely counter to the point here.

    Yep. I relistened to the podcast on the way to work and realized that. It could be a fun final blow, bringing out 8+ if you had whittled them down enough, but Human Paladin sets you up for a nice final blow as well AND protects you from Relentless and Transfer Power.
