White Queen Experienced
SHIELD Agent Veteran
Hydra Medic Rookie
Captain America Rookie
I don't have time to make an entire team, but taking Black Cat, White Queen, and Invisible Girl would be a good start. Some people will suggest the Rookie Firelord, others like me, try not to use him since everybody makes such a fuss over him. But if you want to win, you should probably take him and Yellowjacket (since she's really your only taxi, aside from Annihilus who is pretty pricey for a taxi). Good luck
why do they consider rookie firelord cheap? I heard about that on another thread. whos a better medic? my A.I.M. Medic or my Hydra Medic? Or should I include both in my team (only 12 and 16 points...)
I don't have the stats in front of me, but I think you'll find the AIM Medic not only has a higher attack( and therefore, a better chance to heal), but keeps support longer than the Hydra Medic.
When people say Firelord is cheap, they don't mean that he's inexpensive. They're just observing that he's a TREMENDOUS bargain for his point value. All of his versions seem to consistently outperform other clix of similar point value (many would say to the point of absurdity).
As far as team-building goes, I'm not familiar with all of your figs, but Firelord is excellent (if controversial). Rookie Invisible Girl is awesome when paired with whoever you use as a heavy hitter - just hide her directly behid the big attacker (who tends to draw lots of fire from your opponent) and share that 18 defense. Since you have a lot of low-point clix, Captain America and his Leadership could be useful on you higher-point teams, as you may end up with several more figures than actions. Black Cat and her Probability Control are awesome, so work her in whenever you can.
Controller can be a very interesting figure....most people with mind control tend to shy away from targeting opponents worth over 100 points, since controlling someone that powerful causes a click of damage. But Controller actually gets better as he takes his first few clicks of damage, so he can afford to try and take over your opponents biggest guy, at least for a little while. You may want to pair him up with Yellowjacket as a taxi, so you can move in range and make the Mind Control attack in the same turn.
Annihilus is handy with Running Shot, and the SHIELD Sniper gives you a lot of bang for your buck. And don forget about the Henchman and the SHIELD agent. They may not stand toe-to-toe with anyone at the start of a battle, but if you leave them in the background for a few turns and then bring them forward, they can be a real pain for a wounded opponent.
Anyway, just some thoughts...try out a few combos and see how they work. Good luck :)
thanks. Yeah I really like Leadership. It was very useful in the last time I played, both CA and White Queen had it.
Mind control is good in tournaments, the white queen and Controller would be good choices, add in a few cheap taxies and mabye an outwit and you should be ok
you just cant go wrong with controller, black widow, and sandman. White queen is really useful if you are trying to take over people or beat em' up. Just play, buy some packs, trade and see what works for you.
