Thread: SICK combo!

    SICK combo!

    My girlfriend did this against me last night. It was sad that it happened to me, but at the same time, it was a pretty cool combo to watch:

    Played Robin to...

    Pull Bat Signal out of her discard pile and played it to...

    Pull Man of Steel out of her discard pile to...

    Pull about 40 power worth of super-powers out of her discard pile!

    Sick combo!

    Sweet. I've had the Robin -> Signal chain but never into Man of Steel. Must put that on my to-do list!

    how bout man of steel, parallex, claface.

    next turn, bat signal to pull man of steel.

    third turn, bat signal to pull man of steel.

    yea, it happened. This is why we removed the Man of steel from the main deck. It's an unbalanced card for sure.

    I don't think it's "unbalanced" at all considering the fact that a) there is only 1 copy of it and b) it costs as much as a super-villian...

    today my wife pulled off that combo on me (i had previously done it to her) but she had way more superpowers in her discard pile than I did so she had like 48 power, then she proceeded to use the Riddler to pick up 13 cards from the main deck and used her last power to kill off lex...

    Epic combo last night:

    I'm playing Wonder Woman and ticking all the boxes: Penguin, Arkham, Riddler 2x Clayface a pile of destroy cards and a couple of Super Strengths. I've triggered WW every single turn except the one I stopped to buy Arkham with. This has got me a couple of Super-villains including Lex Luthor & Parallax.

    My draw cards gave me Parallax & both Clayfaces and though I could only generate 7 power apart from that. 7 became 14, then 28, then 56 with the copies of Parallax and I played my final card: Riddler!

    I gained the current Super-villain and gained 14 cards from the main deck, 8 of which were Villains which gave me a hand of 5+1+8 = 14 cards when I re-drew at the end of turn.

    I won that one.

    my wife keeps getting combos like this all the time...she's too lucky, i can't seem to beat her...sigh. Anyone play games where the cards flipped for their opponent are great (superman, ww, clayface, Suicide Squad) and the ones flipped for you suck (equipment, xray vision, lasso)...

    I found this at the start all the time but I found that, if you have a Hero that allows you to extend your hand (WW, Flash, Cyborg), you'll eventually draw out of it. Understanding the value of the line-up against the potential value of cards that could turn up is very important. I've had turns of buying 2-3 kicks if I couldn't beat the Super-villain just to force my opponents to either have a great Super-villain-beating hand or buy the cards in the line-up. The fact that you only refill the line-up at the end of turn is a huge advantage when you play this strategy. Someone will crack, just try to put yourself in a good position to profit when they do.

    Yeah, if the line-up is crap on my turn, I'll just buy kicks in hopes that my girlfriend will be forced to get stuff from the line-up to flip better cards for me... although it usually works against me and something cool WILL flip for me... that I can't afford... but then she can on her turn.

    not unbalanced

    Ok guys, why do I keep hearing your wife/girlfriend pulled this combo on you. Man up and give her the "Man of Steel"!!! Just playing. Seriously, that card is not unbalanced. If you have it in your hand and a crappy discard pile, then it's worthless(+3). I pulled it last night along with the card that lets you pull all the heroes in your discard pile. I can't think of it ugh! I got +33 power! Needless to say I beat my wife pretty bad! haha!
