Ew's Halloween Special


[{"text":"Entertainment Weekly's Halloween Special this year features for different covers with our three guys from Supernatural. To buy the editions take a trip to Barnes and Noble or go here to buy all 4 together. #NL#https://backissues.ew.com/storefront/2017/supernatural-set-of-all-4/prodEW20171020SET.html"}]




"Lost and Found" recap


[{"spoiler":"Heavy"},{"text":"Thursday night was the premiere for Supernatural's lucky Season 13. And let me tell you, it was action-packed but gave a good punch to the feels. Jensen and Jared's acting was on point as usual. Let's go over what happened during the episode."},{"header":"The Introductions"},{"image":[{"src":"x2481138x240-ftt.png"},{"caption":"Angry Jack"}]},{"text":"The episode began where last season left off. Castiel was just killed. Lucifer had just pulled Mary through the portal before it closed. Sam had just gone into the house to check on Kelly and Jack. Dean was understandably and visibly shaken by both Cas's death and Mary's abduction. With Dean's inability to not take action, he ran into the house to find Sam and Jack. Upon seeing Jack's glowing eyes, he took a shot at Jack. Jack's instincts kicked in to protect himself, and he gave a display of his power. Both Sam and Dean are knocked out."},{"header":"The Aftermath"},{"image":[{"src":"hqd274532hqdefaul.jpg"},{"caption":"Dead Cas"}]},{"text":"When the boys woke up, they had to search for Jack, who was on a mission to find his father. (He later revealed that Cas is his father by his choosing.) Angels were on the search as well after sensing the nephilim's birth. The angels, with mixed feeling, found Cas back at the house. They let us know that Cas is dead dead, not sort of dead. Jack gets taken in by the town sheriff and her son who quickly learned that Jack is not normal."},{"header":"The REveal"},{"image":[{"src":"9-s5118689-supern.jpg"},{"caption":"Dean vs Bitchy Angel"}]},{"text":"Sam and Dean made it to the sheriff's department just after Jack threw the sheriff across a room. Jack vs angel radio was not a good mix. The sheriff locked Jack and Sam in a cell while she questioned Dean. Dean was surprisingly forthcoming with all the info they usually keep hidden for mundanes. Of course, the angels were hot on the trail and took the sheriff's son as hostage. Thus a fight ensued. What we learned from the fight was this: angel radio hurts Jack, angel banishing sigils sting Jack a bit, and angel blades do not kill Jack."},{"header":"The verdict"},{"image":[{"src":"dkt949179dktailnw.jpg"},{"caption":"Decision making in progress"}]},{"text":"After everything was all said and done, Sam and Dean decided that Jack should go back to the bunker with them. Sam wanted this because he wants to protect Jack until they can determine what Jack will be like. Dean wanted this because he thinks that will only allow Jack to hurt them instead of anybody else since he believes that Jack is evil. "},{"header":"Thoughts?"},{"text":"I'm looking forward to learning more about Jack in the next episodes. For now though, here are some questions to ponder. What do you think Jack will be, evil or good? What other powers could he have that other nephilim don't? (We haven't seen much of what nephilim can do, but this isn't a regular nephilim.) If an angel blade can't kill Jack, what can kill him? Please let me know in the comment section what you thought of the episode."}]




DC Deck Building: Shapeshift


[{"text":"Hey everyone! I typically write articles about Main Character teams, and strategies for using them effectively. Today, I thought it would be nice to change it up and talk about a specific card. So in this post, we\u2019re going to be talking about Shapeshift."},{"image":[{"src":"cap345170capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"A few of us have been debating the \u2018best overall card\u2019 in the cube. Our criteria for the \u2018best overall card\u2019 is something along the lines of:"},{"list":[{"listType":"bullet"},{"caption":"Works well when used by most character combinations"},{"caption":"Can go into nearly any deck, whether you find yourself buying heroes, equipment, etc."}]},{"header":"THIS CARD HAS ALL CARD NAMES AND IS ALSO A HERO, VILLAIN, AND EQUIPMENT WHILE YOU OWN IT."},{"text":"That sentence is often overlooked, and perhaps not taken into account nearly enough throughout the course of a game. This means that while you own the card, it is a Super Power, Hero, Villain and Equipment whether it is in your hand, in play, or in the discard pile."},{"text":"From a card-interaction standpoint, the ability of shapeshift to be (almost) all types while in so many zones can have substantial payoffs. Let\u2019s look at some different groups of cards that can interact with Shapeshift, but first, lets look at a few of the things you can't do with this card."},{"header":"THINGS YOU CAN't DO WITH SHAPESHIFT"},{"image":[{"src":"cap846725capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"You cannot interact with Shapeshift as it if were any of its additional types unless you own it. This means no gaining it with Black Latern Power Ring or with Collapsible Staff. When someone doesn\u2019t own Shapeshift, it's just a lowly Super Power. Unfortunate."},{"header":"THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH SHAPESHIFT"},{"text":"Assuming you own Shapeshift, let\u2019s look at some of the sweet interactions you can take advantage of:"},{"image":[{"src":"cap618772capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"We can interact with Shapeshift as if it were a Punch using Daughter of Gotham City. That\u2019s a solid upgrade. We get our Shapeshift [Punch] back to our hand. We can also reveal and draw it with Nightwing and then repeat the reveal and draw process. These interactions are often used when looking for other cards, but also interact with Shapeshift in a sneaky way."},{"header":"SHAPESHIFT EVEN MESSES UP YOUR OPPONENTS"},{"text":"Not only does Shapeshift has some unique interactions just from other cards in your deck, your opponents might find themselves inadvertently letting you interact with it as well."},{"image":[{"src":"cap914354capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"We can happily return our Shapeshift to our hand if we\u2019re attacked by Parasite and likewise we can put Shapeshift back on top of our deck if we get attacked by Ms. Harley Quinn. If you are putting that Shapeshift to good use your opponents will think twice about using those attacks when they see Shapeshift in your discard pile!"},{"header":"COLLATERAL DAMAGE FROM SHAPESHIFT"},{"text":"A few cards will punish you for using Shapeshift, but there aren\u2019t many. By and large, the positive interactions with it far outweigh the negative. A few that might trip you up include:"},{"image":[{"src":"cap780776capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Star Sapphire Power Ring will often force you to be unable to draw the revealed cards if one of them happens to be Shapeshift since it classifies as so many types while in your deck. Likewise, Psycho Pirate is going to give you the option of holding onto Shapeshift, but at the expense of discarding every other card in your hand. Since Shapeshift has every card name it's automatically a duplicate of every other card. That\u2019s a bit unfortunate."},{"header":"INTERESTING INTERACTIONS"},{"text":"There are a few cards that didn\u2019t fit well into other categories, but I wanted to give honorable mention to."},{"image":[{"src":"cap654755capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"T-Wing will be worth another VP if you end the game with it and a Shapeshift, and is a good pickup if you\u2019ve found yourself with a few other low cost cards. Duplication is interesting, but can require a bit of setup. You can also get a lot of value out of cards that trigger when a specific type is played, such as the following:"},{"image":[{"src":"cap793222capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Shapeshift + Duplication will net you an additional three power for each one of those you have in play. If you\u2019ve picked up a few locations along the way, this could potentially be a large power combination, allowing you to defeat the Super Villain (albeit at the cost of destroying your Shapeshift...a bit sad.)"},{"header":"GOOD SHAPESHIFT INTERACTIONS"},{"text":"Now we\u2019ll look at some cards which don\u2019t require any work, and are just plain good when Shapeshift is involved."},{"image":[{"src":"cap328122capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"With Animal Man, it's hard to miss if Shapeshift is your top card. You have mostly Villains in your deck? Name Villain...if it turns out that Shapeshift is on top of your deck then great, you get to draw him. T-Spheres has similar utility, in that you\u2019ll never \u2018miss\u2019 if Shapeshift is in your top three cards because it has all card names. Name Kick, put Shapeshift in your hand if you reveal it! Name Punch, put Shapeshift in your hand if you reveal it!"},{"text":"Bunker is just as good because Shapeshift is basically four different types in one card, so you can pick and choose what you want him to be at times. Imagine you reveal the following three cards from the top of your deck:"},{"image":[{"src":"cap254856capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Bunker will gladly let you return one equipment (Aquaman\u2019s Trident), one Location (Atlantis) and one Hero (Shapeshift) to your hand."},{"header":"SHAPESHIFT IS ALWAYS A SPECIFIC NAMED CARD"},{"text":"Since Shapeshift is every named card in the game, he pairs up real well with any of the following:"},{"image":[{"src":"cap380629capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"image":[{"src":"cap354885capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Shapeshift makes an excellent Jervis Tetch, Catwoman, Starbolt, Royal Flush Gang, etc. It is the combo enabler of all combo enablers. Due to the sheer size of the cube, you might be worried if you\u2019ll ever have a Starbolt flip out into the lineup and perhaps be wary of picking up a mid-game Warrior Princess. If you have a Shapeshift you don\u2019t need to worry about such piddly things such as \u2018will this card ever come up\u2019 because you already have it in your deck!"},{"header":"THE WOMBO-COMBO"},{"text":"The last card I want to discuss is Mirror Gun. If you can pair this card with Shapeshift when you have a sizeable discard pile, the game will end very quickly."},{"image":[{"src":"cap633141capture.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"I have never pulled this combo off in an actual game...but if I ever do it will be a game I won\u2019t soon forget! Let\u2019s see how this would play out:"},{"list":[{"listType":"bullet"},{"caption":"Play Shapeshift"},{"caption":"Get a measly one power"},{"caption":"Wow, ok"},{"caption":"Great"},{"caption":"Anything else?"}]},{"text":"Play Mirror Gun.  Now I'll return one copy of every unique card in my discard pile to my hand..."},{"text":"Ok, so I can return one Punch, one Kick...and one of every single unique card in my discard pile (because you played shapeshift and it has all card names). Your opponents will probably start counting up their VP once they see you returning 10-20 (potentially even more) cards from your discard pile to your hand. This is living the dream."},{"text":"That\u2019s it for this article. Hopefully I\u2019ve shown you some reasons to pick up a Shapeshift next time you see one in the lineup and maybe you can be the first person to live the Shapeshift + Mirror Gun dream!"}]




DC Deck Building: Tricky, Tricky, Trickster


[{"text":"Hey guys!#NL##NL#Today I\u2019d like to talk about the main character Trickster, a couple different ways to play him, and how he matches up against some of the top tier threats!#NL##NL#If you are looking to play with Trickster (or any of the other Rogues) you'll need the Rogues expansion here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N7U43EC/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01N7U43EC&linkCode=as2&tag=rdeed-20&linkId=338fdbc33d5e916f1caadc7be44beed3 #NL#"},{"image":[{"src":"1-p574421.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"header":"Ability Breakdown"},{"text":"Trickster has two abilities. His first one we\u2019ll touch on is his teamwork ability. Like every other character from the Rogues Crossover Pack, he has the ability to play the top card of an opponent\u2019s deck in exchange for giving them 1 VP. This ability lets you reach for cards earlier than you would typically be able to buy them otherwise by playing your opponents cards that generate power."},{"text":"His second ability is what makes him so unique. Whenever you shuffle your discard pile to become your deck, you can leave one card of your choice in your discard pile. This will be whatever card you\u2019re trying to loop more often than not, though you can leave a vulnerability in the discard pile to give yourself a higher chance of drawing a strong early game hand. "},{"header":"Raven and Lightning Lad"},{"image":[{"src":"2-p899872.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"The first Trickster team I\u2019d like to cover is a personal favorite of mine, and is one I have a lot of fun with, and it utilizes Lightning Lad and Raven. "},{"text":"The gist of this team is to buy as many cheap villains as you can early to help you be able to afford a strong super power to loop with Raven. Lightning Lad\u2019s ability will also often let you trigger Raven\u2019s ability, even if you only have one villain in hand. Lightning Lad not only helps you trigger Raven\u2019s ability, but also allows you to reach those higher power numbers in the early turns to be able to purchase those high cost super powers that you want to leave in your discard pile with trickster."},{"image":[{"src":"3-p2356753.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"This team often prioritizes ongoing villain cards, and benefits a lot when the first villain on the stack is Edward Fyers, Slade Wilson, or Vandal Savage. Ongoing Villains make it to where you only ever need to play one additional villain per turn to trigger Raven\u2019s ability. Some of the ones you want to keep an eye out for from the main deck include:"},{"image":[{"src":"4-p1196334.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Don\u2019t forget that you can loop a Kick with Raven\u2019s ability worst-case scenario. +2 Power every turn isn\u2019t bad. Animal Man is a 4-tier hero after all."},{"header":"Braniac 5 and Captain Boomerang"},{"image":[{"src":"5-p760665.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"The next version of a Trickster team I\u2019d like to talk about is probably the most consistent and competitive Trickster team. It consists of Braniac 5 and Captain Boomerang."},{"text":"The looping ability of choice here is Braniac 5\u2019s ability to discard two cards to add a 5 cost card from your discard pile to your hand. If you manage to start with 4 punches and use Trickster\u2019s Teamwork ability for a punch, you could start playing a powerful 5 cost card every turn as soon as turn 2!#NL#"},{"text":"The cost of discarding two cards early in the game isn\u2019t too bad because you\u2019re typically discarding starters to play a 5 cost card; however, as the game goes on, it becomes less and less likely that you want to discard two cards from your hand for your 5 cost card. Captain Boomerang basically lets you mitigate the discard cost of Braniac 5 by one card. Captain boomerang lets you add the card with the lowest VP value in your discard pile to your hand. It doesn\u2019t matter if the card he gets back is a weakness, starter, or low cost card you bought. He\u2019s worst-case scenario just adding a card back to your hand that you\u2019re going to discard anyways to get back your 5 cost card with Braniac 5, but best-case scenario he adds back that 5 cost for free if it\u2019s the only card in your discard pile."},{"header":"How Does Trickster Fair Against the Tiers?"},{"text":"Overall I think Trickster teams have a lot of potential in the upcoming season. Trickster teams tend to have some of the most consistent mid to late game of any team compositions out there. Their main weakness is not being able to get set up before one of the more aggressive compositions gets too far ahead. When playing against those kinds of teams, getting some impactful attack cards that can hinder the aggressive teams hand can buy you time to get set up. Being able to play strong cards every turn is just inherently powerful, and makes Trickster definitely something to consider next time you sit down to play! I think that\u2019s all for this week! See you next time!#NL#"},{"affiliate":[{"name":"DC DECK-BUILDING CROSSOVER PACK 5: THE ROGUES"}, {"extralink":"//ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=rdeed-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B01N7U43EC"}, {"textlink":"https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N7U43EC/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01N7U43EC&linkCode=as2&tag=rdeed-20&linkId=338fdbc33d5e916f1caadc7be44beed3"}, {"srclink":"//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=B01N7U43EC&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=rdeed-20"}]}]

DC Deck Building: Gliding through life


[{"text":"Hey everyone!  We've been busy testing these new characters the last few weeks, while also looking forward to the new ones that will be released later this year.  With the recent change in the tier list, coupled with the release of some new main characters this year, there are plenty of changes to evaluate and a whole slew of new combination possibilities to test.#NL##NL#Today's article is going to be about Golden Glider, from the Crossover #5 expansion, 'The Rogues'.

Now her Teamwork ability really starts to shine. Forget hitting starters, now you have a chance to hit real cards, potentially destroy cards, locations, etc. At worst someone has probably bought a kick. In this case, try to always target the player with the best deck and eventually you\u2019ll start team working some really good cards."},{"text":"Now that we know Golden Glider is one of the most explosive early game characters, let's look at some cards you should be looking to pick up when playing her."},{"image":[{"src":"1-p3492271.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"image":[{"src":"2-p6682562.png"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"You should be overvaluing cards that let you play other cards, and pick them over anything else except defeating a Super Villian.

What tends to happen, is the other players get so far behind that they tend to start \u2018ganging up\u2019 on the Golden Glider player.

Your best bet with this team is to be friendly towards the Golden Glider player, and encourage them to teamwork you every turn by leaving something really good on top that they\u2019ll want to teamwork. Sure, this helps propel them to victory, but gaining one VP every turn for your troubles isn\u2019t bad."},{"text":"Most games the teamwork VP from Golden Glider can tend to get passed around so that everyone gets some.

Remember that Golden Glider wants to get in quick, pick up some good cards, and win a fast game. One of the best ways to defeat her is to ignore the Super Villains. Just flat out don\u2019t buy them. The Golden Glider player will usually have a very hard time defeating all five Super Villians by themselves."},{"text":"You can sit back and trigger Green Lantern every turn with your deck packed full of mediocre cards and win the long game.

We Need A Darth Bane Film!


[{"text":"A character that I want Lucasfilm to expand upon is Darth Bane. Darth Bane is known by fans as the creator of the Rule of Two. The character was created by George Lucas in the 1990s as part of his backstory for the STAR WARS PREQUEL TRILOGY."},{"image":[{"src":"ban327375bane1.jpg"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Darth Bane's first mention in Star Wars is in the novelization of THE PHANTOM MENACE, which is written by Terry Brooks and published in 1999. In Terry Brooks' memoir "Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life," he claims George Lucas spent an hour on the phone with him discussing the history of the Jedi and Sith for the Episode I novelization. Information on Darth Bane is brief in the novel for Episode I, but it is worth noting that they refer to Bane's Sith apprentice as "him." This is obviously different than the Expanded Universe\/Legends brand, which had Bane's apprentice as a female (Darth Zannah)."},{"image":[{"src":"ban401902bane2.jpg"},{"caption":"Episode I Novelization "}]},{"text":"The Expanded Universe\/Legends brand expanded upon Darth Bane's history.
