Pool 1 - America Chavez (4), Apocalypse (8), Blade (18), Korg (225), Lady Sif (73), Spider-Woman (117), Sword Master (124), Wolverine (143), Yondu (146)
Pool 2 - Morbius (240), Scorpion (110), Swarm (123)
Pool 1 & 2 offer seven cards that deal directly with the discard theme.
Killers: Blade, Lady Sif, and Sword Master each discard a single card while Lady Sif will target Apocalypse if he is in our hand.
Targets: Apocalypse, Swarm, and Wolverine each want to be discarded. Apocalypse to have more power, Wolverine to be free to play, and Swarm for both.
Observer: Morbius is the only one that benefits from discarding cards without being directly involved in it. However, with the limited pool for discarding he typically ends the game as a 2-cost 2/4-power card (without taking locations into consideration).
America serves two purposes in this deck: because she is ONLY drawn on turn 6 our deck has only 11 cards that can be drawn from turns 1-5, and in the event Apocalypse has not been discarded this game she acts as the backup finisher.
The deck has room for 4 flex cards (the discard package takes 7 and America is only present on the sixth turn).
I personally like Scorpion and Spider-Woman to weaken multiple cards, as well as Korg and Yondu to mess with the opponent's draw.
Please let me know what you think of the deck, what recommendations you would have for pools 1 & 2, or what cards you would upgrade into pool 3. I hope you have a good day! ^_^
