Welcome to the first of two Legendary®: S.H.I.E.L.D. card previews.
The paramilitary espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. guards Earth from criminals, terrorists, and super villains alike. Formally the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Division, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are the best of the best.
This new keyword represents how S.H.I.E.L.D. agents unlock special operations, resources, and abilities as they rise through the ranks of the organization. Sending agents on undercover missions, fighting Hydra, and defeating rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives are all good ways to increase your S.H.I.E.L.D. Level.
This new keyword represents sending S.H.I.E.L.D. agents off the grid on special missions to recover valuable intel.
Special S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers
This set introduces 16 new special S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers, featuring some of the most famous agents of all time. Much like the basic Maria Hill from the core set, all of these officers cost 3 and provide 2 . However, these special S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers also have Hero Classes (,,,,) and additional abilities that make them more powerful than the basic S.H.I.E.L.D. Officer.
Shuffle the new 16 officers with the original 30 officers for all your games, so the stack is now permanently 46 cards. Keep the S.H.I.E.L.D. Officer Stack face down throughout the game. Whenever you recruit a S.H.I.E.L.D. Officer or gain one from a special ability, gain the top card from the stack.
We hope you have enjoyed the first preview for Legendary: S.H.I.E.L.D. Get ready for the next preview when we reveal the sinister forces that lurk in the shadows. Our heroes will need to be ever vigilant to defeat the evil secret orders of Hydra and its offshoot, A.I.M.
Legendary: S.H.I.E.L.D. will release December 18th!
