I was trying to turn Hawkeye into my Avengers Dispenser but just could not get it to gel. Seemed to fit in with his old West Coast Avengers thing thematically, but it was too slow for most scenarios and he'd always end up just shooting the shit out of people because he can be so good at that. I'll try this Black Panther one out, looks great.

played Hela and Loki with the War Machine/Iron Man decks ive been running.

Hela is a great scenario. reminiscent of Escape The Museum, which was probably my favorite scenario from Galaxy's Most Wanted. the focus is on getting through a series of powerful minions and side schemes to rescue Odin. lots of fun stuff going on here. definitely going to replay this one soon.

Loki seems really fun too! i had an extremely dramatic game vs him. Whiplash showed up early (Iron Man's nemesis) and caused trouble (discarding upgrades and generally being annoying), and we got hosed by there not being many minions in the encounter deck by TWICE discarding like 18 cards and failing to find a minion (getting 2 rapid acceleration tokens). but we whittled him down and had him at 20 HP in his final form with about 24 dmg in hand to finish him next turn. both heroes were low on HP (4 and 5 respectively i think), but we had TONS of allies out to block for us. during the villain phase we flipped Whiplash's card that discards 5 cards from each hero's deck and does 1dmg per discarded energy resource, which did 4dmg to Iron Man and killed him out of nowhere. War Machine was left with 4hp (taking 1 dmg from the energy resource attack). War Machine did 10dmg and flipped down the Alter Ego, as the Loki variant in play had Retaliate 1 WM was down to 1HP after attacking him 3 times. WM draws up and has all the damage he needs to kill Loki on the next turn. Loki schemes putting the main scheme up to 25/28 threat. but then the Time Stone goes off, which discards 4 cards from the hero's deck and places 1 threat on the main scheme for each different type of card discarded. flip 3 different types and thats the game. SO CLOSE! the surprise KO by Whiplash was just the kind of thematic fun that I love in this game.

So anyway, MTS is a great box. strong recommend. I see myself playing all these scenarios many times. plus the modular sets are GREAT. the Frost Giants one with Laufey (6hp, 4atk, toughness, and 4(!) boost icons) and multiple copies of Frozen which makes your hero unable to ready, the Legions of Hel one that summons your allies against you as zombies... just tons of really fun stuff in this box.

Black Panther seems like a great choice for Leadership. Cheap hero cards, strong resources, leaving him free to spend on allies. Aside from Wakanda Forever and defending/retaliating, he feels like he is missing something.

I want to take another shot at the Thanos campaign, but don't have the luxury of leaving the game set up while my friend is still in town. He tried Marvel Champions and liked it, but wants to try various other games in my collection before revisiting MC. I want to swap out Iron Man and Spectrum and try running a team of Adam Warlock, Thor (aggression), Dr. Strange (protection), and Scarlet Witch (justice).

I've found that Hawkeye works better with Aggression than Leadership, as long as another player can help protect him.

Here's my last attempt at a West Coast Avengers build that could use some updating

If you're going for thematic, your West Coast Avengers deck should dump Black Knight, Squirrel Girl, and Stinger, and replace them with Tigra, War Machine, and Iron Man.

WM and IM work in leadership.....but Tigra is aggression. I went with a bunch of b listers to represent Darkhawk, living lightning, firebird. And all those other weirdos.

You totally could pull it off, if you teamed up with IM and ran him with aggression to nab Tigra.


I'm currently working an a super thematic Hawkeye deck based on the series. Leadership, with the only allies being Kate, Cosmo ( as a stand in for Pizza Dog), Mockingbird and Ronin. When I get back from in- laws Xmas, I'll put it up. It's not great - like it's better than a pre-con and handles standard fine, but not quite "let's run it through the expert gauntlet."

i forget if it was here that someone mentioned this Dr Strange Aggression Ally Voltron deck, but man I made a versino of this and holy hell it is fun. and also powerful AF. strong recommend.

marvelcdb.com/decklist/view/14968/dr-str...eme-puppetmaster-1.0

the gist is you use Rings of Raggador to put Tough on your allies so they can use Enraged and attack without taking consequential damage, and you throw Sidearm and Energy Spear on them too, and also play Boot Camp. also you have 1 beefed up Guardian and Avenger ally in play so you can use As One for like 14+ damage. also a powered up Cosmo to cycle your invocation deck and not tacke consequential damage... its just a wild deck idea. love it love it love it.

it (plus Justice Ms. Marvel) absolutely CRUSHED expert The Hood, even with backup from the ally hating Crossfire's Crew modular.

edit: 1HP Wasp ally was on the board for the entire game, and was swinging for 7atk almost the entire time :laugh:

Also, not to double post, but The Hood slaps. He's right up there with Green Goblin for best scenario pack... Might give the nod to The Hood but it's close. Mainly he's got so many fun Modular sets, but GG comes with a lot of great ones too.
