Space can be a dangerous place. Full of scoundrels, zealots, and unfathomable entities; there’s bound to be some trouble for the Guardians no matter where they go. Thankfully that leads to even more exciting cards and keywords in Legendary®: Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy tied to these characters. Time to see what they’re bringing to the table, and how our crafty crew can turn those tools against them.
Previously introduced in Legendary®: Heroes of Asgard, Villainous Weapons are back, now with Ambush effects attached. When a Villainous Weapon is played from the Villain Deck, the Weapon is captured by the Villain in the city that’s closest to the Villain Deck. If there are no Villains in the city, then KO the Weapon instead.
Villains that have captured a Villainous Weapon gain the bonus printed on the Weapon, making them tougher to take down but rewarding anyone who can. Just be aware that a Villain can potentially hold multiple Weapons at once, combining those bonuses! If they escape before they can be overcome, then the Mastermind will gain any Weapons the escaping enemy held at that time.
Once you fight a Villain or Mastermind holding any number of Weapons, they are then put into your discard pile as Artifacts! In this expansion’s case, those would be Triggered Artifacts, letting you benefit from them consistently once they’re under your control.
Just like Triggered Artifacts, these range from weapons to ships, but sometimes you might end up with something with a little more underneath the hood…
It’s not just Weapons that can be wielded by Villains – some have influence over entire Groups. These prominent members of their organizations can Command the others, gaining stated bonuses and abilities so long as it’s the leftmost Villain of that Villain Group in the city.
Between Villainous Weapons and the ability to Command a Villain Group, (attack) values can end up higher than you expect quickly. You’ll have to hit hard and smart to get through them, and then turn that firepower right back around into their faces!
Last but not least we’ll be looking at a Mastermind and some Schemes that’ll be standing between Star-Lord’s team and their paycheck. Keep an eye out for the encore of our Legendary®: Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy previews!
