Welcome to the final set of previews for the Darkness and Light Arc for Vs. System 2PCG! This Arc features various forms of Darkness and Light throughout the Marvel Universe. The first 55-card Issue focused on one of the darkest teams in Marvel’s history: The Masters of Evil! The second 55-card Issue introduced Spells and highlighted the masters of the Mystic Arts! This final Issue, Into the Darkness, takes a dark turn into the world of the denizens of darkness! But first, some more light…
The Arc also has more Spellcasters to reveal, like Forge, who is in the last Issue, but whose Inventions show up in this one! (What can we say, genius takes time!)
For more on Inventions please see HERE.
Did you notice his card number last time, or this time? He is a NEW Mutant, after all. This matters for cards like:
But what can he invent?! Here’s something!
Nice. But…is there anything larger he can invent?
The Blackbird introduces a new kind of equipment to the game – Vehicles! When you play a Vehicle, equip it to one character like normal. But whenever you rearrange your Formation (including on the turn you played the Vehicle), you may have characters on your side get on or off the Vehicle: Choose any number up to the Vehicle’s Passenger Limit (found next to “Vehicle” on its type line), put them next to each other in the same row, and equip the Vehicle to all of them. Here are more details:
While a Vehicle has only one passenger, it works just like any other equipment. If its passenger gets turned face down or leaves play, the Vehicle will get KO’d. If an effect moves the passenger to a different row, the Vehicle will move with them.
While a Vehicle has more than one passenger, it works a little differently. If a passenger gets turned face down or leaves play, it becomes unequipped from the Vehicle, but the Vehicle remains equipped to the other passenger(s). If all passengers to get turned face down or leave play at the same time, they all become unequipped from the Vehicle and the Vehicle gets KO’d. If an effect moves all passengers to a different row, the Vehicle goes with them. If an effect causes one or more passengers to be in one row and the others to be in a different row, the controller of the Vehicle chooses which group of passengers stays equipped to the Vehicle.
The X-Jet has up to four effects, depending on how many passengers it has. For example, while there are exactly three face-up passengers, they will each have ,+1/+1 and Dodge. If one passenger becomes unequipped, then the other two will now have and +1/+1.
And Forge isn’t even the only Inventor in the Arc:
Remember that Lethal means that if Drake wounds a defending supporting character, he KOs it (regardless of its remaining health).
Note: Yes, Lethal works very well with Necrotech.
But what exactly are Nightstalkers? Some of you know already, and some of you will look it up soon!
Here’s another one, just because:
Remember that Berserker means that when he attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on him.
To finish today’s preview, we give you one last hero related to Spells:
