We pulled 47 uncommon cards. We got one more uncommon in this feed than we did in the first feed. There were three cards we didn’t get any copies of versus the one we didn’t get a copy of from the first feed.

Rares and Super Rare
We pulled 16 rares and none of them were duplicates within the feed itself, but we did pull many we already pulled in the first feed. We pulled two Super Rares in this gravity feed instead of one. We also had the misfortune of pulling a Super Rare that we had gotten in the first feed. We’re collectors as well as players and we don’t normally use the same cards, at least not the big ones. At least he’s trade worthy!

#108     Bane
#109     Bizarro
#110     Brainiac
#111     Bruce Wayne
#112     Carmine Falcone
#114     Commissioner Gordon
#115     Dick Grayson

#138     Ultraman (Super Rare)

 

Favorites

I’m not doing a review of the entire set. I’m only going over a few of my favorite cards, because I can’t go over all my favorites since there are too many. If you need a ruling question answered, leave a comment and we’ll delve into it and review the individual card.

Common 1
Bane, Professional Criminal (left) – The thing I love about this Bane is that he has a way to force your opponent’s characters to attack. He can then block them, hopefully KO them, and spin up a level. He can do it all on his own, without the help of another character. He has some great stats and good fielding costs. His purchase cost isn’t too bad, especially with Blue-Eyes out there. I know I probably sound like a broken record but if a card is that good – you can’t deny it! This Bane would make a great addition to any Villain team and could possibly find his way onto some rogue teams. The only problem is that your opponent can use his global against you.

Clark Kent, The Glasses Come Off (center) – I love the ability on Clark Kent. Your opponent may be reluctant to attack you because of him, or you can force your opponent to block with Goblin Attack Force‘s global. You can get your Superman onto the field and not at level one, but level two! This Clark is almost a must have for any Superman team!

Doomsday, Villainous Monster (right) – Doomsday works well with easy-to-buy Villains. He only cost four energy! As long as you keep some other Villains in the field, this guy is a force to be reckoned with. He fields easy and has nice beefy stats. I don’t see too many bad things about him as long as you use him with other Villains. He’s a great card for any beginner trying to make a Villain team.

Common 2
Harley Quinn, Leadership Skills (left) – I really love this Harley Quinn for any Villain team. She reduces the fielding cost of all your non-Harley Villains by one and that could be really handy way to field some Villains for free and save you some energy. I like her more than the earlier versions from Justice League. I’m not a fan of her stats or her level three fielding cost, but she’s totally worth it.

Krypto, Here Boy! (center) – Out of all four Krypto cards, this one and the three in the Starter, I think this is probably my favorite for a Superman Affiliation team. Being able to field him from your Used Pile or Prep Area for free is super cool. After all, Superman needs Superman’s best friend.

Poison Ivy, Home and Garden (right) – When you pair this Poison Ivy with Goblin Attack Force‘s global, she can be downright nasty! You pick the characters you want to KO, pay Goblin Attack Force’s global for each one, then attack with Poison Ivy and divide her damage up between each blocker. They all get KO’d and hopefully she survives. Even if she doesn’t, you get to reroll her next turn. I love this character for her ability, she’s a Mask character, she’s cheap, and her fielding costs are awesome. She’s a great addition to almost any casual team, even without Goblin Attack Force.

Uncommon 1
Alfred Pennyworth, MI-5 (left) – I like the idea of being able to block with Alfred, and then roll a Sidekick or Batman (hopefully on energy), and get to put Alfred back in the Field Zone. This Alfred is definitely going on my Batman Affiliation team. He only cost two to buy and his fielding costs are perfect. He makes the perfect blocker if they don’t have Overcrush.

Brainiac, Manipulative Schemer (center) – Oh my goodness, this Villain! He’s so good! You just need to get him active. Blue-Eyes is your buddy for buying this guy. His ability to swap your opponent’s blockers around how you choose is probably one of the most unique abilities. You can reduce his fielding cost with Harley Quinn too. My Villain team is totally getting revamped.

Bruce Wayne, Matches Malone (right) – This Bruce Wayne is so great! Being able to KO one of your characters with Blue-Eyes, then move a Batman from your bag or Used Pile to the Field Zone at level two, and deal two damage to a target character is great. I can’t think of a better way to get Batman into the Field Zone. Polymorph is good, but it’s not this good! I can’t wait to put this Bruce Wayne on my Batman Affiliation team!

Uncommon 2Kal-L, Trained by Superboy (left) – This is another great, heavy hitter of a character. You can reduce his cost with Blue-Eyes and his ability is really good outside of the DC sets. He’s a great addition to any Superman Affiliation team.

Kryptonite, Green Plague (center) – We’ve seen cards that spin characters down by a level, but there aren’t many that spin them down to level one directly. This could be a powerful card when paired with the right cards. The double burst ability is great within the DC sets for drafts or other sealed events as well.

Mr. Mxyzptlk (right) – I’m not even going to try to pronounce this guy’s name. But this guy’s ability is too good. You can pair him with a card like Hulk, Green Goliath or Magic Missile to help you clear your opponent’s Field Zone. You could even use Poison Ivy, Pretty Poison, which is from World’s Finest.

RaresDick Grayson, Brand New Bat (left) – Oh my… Dick Grayson can make some Sidekicks into Batman Affiliated characters just to let you feed them to Blue-Eyes. Doing that will increase his attack and defense as well as being able to do his damage directly to your opponent, even if he’s blocked. He’s a hefty costing character with some big fielding costs, but he looks like a great late game character for a Batman Affiliation team.

Mr. Freeze, Heart of Ice (center) – Here’s a unique ability! I could see this character possibly making it onto a rogue team. Any kind of control ability has great potential to see competitive play, but with his purchase cost, I’m not sure how much he’ll see. I just really love this card and can’t wait to see him in action!

Scarecrow, Hallucinogenic Vapors (right) – Finally, a Scarecrow I feel like I can play. His purchase cost is great, his stats are decent, and he has good fielding costs too. With how his ability works, you could feed him to Blue-Eyes and nab one of your opponent’s characters until the end of turn. The possibilities and potential of this card are intriguing and since he’s a Villain, he’ll go great on a Villain team with Harley Quinn.

Two-Color Dice

New Dice Colors

This is the Superman and Steel die. They have started using a swirl type coloring, similar to Cirrus Dice and Gemini Dice from Chessex.

Wonder Woman and Zatanna from the previous DC sets, have a metallic swirl color to their dice and that’s the closest we had seen to two-color dice. They closely resemble the Velvet Dice from Chessex. We’ve had these ‘velvety’ dice since the first set, but they’re hard to recognize at times. You can see them best by turning them under a light to see the metallic looking swirl.

As I mentioned previously in the Starter Review, Superman resembles the Cirrus type and Steel resembles the Gemini. We also have Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to add to the two-color dice. They both have the Gemini type swirl like Steel.

Harley and Ivy

Poison Ivy has more of a flat look and not a shiny look similar to Harley Quinn and Steel. I love Harley Quinn’s new dice and I even like Poison Ivy’s!

I do not believe that Chessex has anything to do with the coloring of dice in Dice Masters, I was just using their dice as a color reference. I’m very excited to see more of these two-color type dice in future sets!

 What are some of your favorite cards in the set?

    Very interesting

    Like

  2. A personal favorite of mine is the Batcave- Home Sweet Cave. When one of your char. dice is ko’d then you can place it under the Batcave then during your main step you can send the Batcave to your used pile and bring all char. dice under it back into play at level 1. I can see this being used with Guy Rush teams or some rogue looking to mass attack. Just wanted to share a favorite of mine. Great article! Keep them coming!
