DC Deckbuilding: Green Lantern Variant

[B][U]DC Deckbuilding: Green Lantern[/U][/B]

This variant is mostly about theme, centering around the Green Lantern-verse characters with frequent allies and featured cameos from [I]Blackest Night[/I] into [I]Brightest Day[/I] (so many cards are centered on that story).

Seeing as how Rebirth is going to include Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, I'm assuming there'll be compatible main deck cards to add/swap when that set drops in addition to those oversized hero cards.

The cost curve is somewhat swollen around the 5-cost slot due to the power rings, so experiment with what to drop/keep.

This variant doesn't use an 8-cost Super-Villain/Hero, unless you'd feel appropriate using The Flash (and Green Arrow for that matter), so this might be a good time to experiment with incorporating the SV's into the main deck, resolving their First Appearance: Attacks as they hit the lineup.

*Edit Added Rebirth cards/made some swaps - for better theme.
**Considered swapping 1 Constructs of Fear for Princess Diana of Themyscira, but her card is so OP I don't know if I can do it in good conscience.

    Is there a ruling on if Constructs of Fear (FE) and Constructs (RB) are considered constructs for the wording on John Stewart and Rigen Kale?
