Smells Like Teen Spirit

Here's my latest Aggression Ms Marvel deck that I've been having quite a bit of success with. The build will obviously go through quite a few changes once Thor comes out. A few cards may seem a bit out of place, but overall it still works really well, especially for minion-heavy encounters.

I initially put this together after I heard about the interaction of Melee with Embiggen! in that it turns into a 5/5 damage attack, which is pretty great. In doing so, I also just fell in love with the way Ms Marvel plays and how consistent she is with all of her cards, like her alter-ego ability, Aamir Khan, and Bruno Carrelli. Ms Marvel already does so much damage with Big Hands and Embiggen!, and I've added the aforementioned Melee and a couple Uppercut and Relentless Assault for some added layers of damage. No Tac Team and just focusing on as many Attack events as possible to get the most value out of Morphogenetics.

Ms Marvel also manages threat quite well too, and Chase Them Down complements Sneak By and Shrink to help her consistency in dealing with that.

Hulk is mainly in the deck as a meatshield. It may seem weird to have Hulk in a deck and not plan to attack with him, but he can tank quite a few hits for only a cost of 2. When we can build a deck with more , I'd definitely advise attacking with him more. There's an equal chance of just discarding him as there is for all the other effects, but tanking a hit or two and swinging for 3 is still really solid for 2 cost.

No Combat Training because you're almost exclusively relying on your events, but if you're playing multiplayer, definitely try to squeeze a couple copies in to help other players. Both caps, She-hulk, and Black Panther especially will be using their basic actions to attack quite a bit. I would suggest taking out either Uppercut or Relentless Assault to make room for them.

The future looks bright for this deck with all of the fun cards coming in Thor's pack*, but i think there's a lot of great value here already. It's an absolute monster at clearing away an army of minions.

May 16 UPDATE: After Thor release, the final build is closer to -1 Avengers Mansion -2 Uppercut OR Relentless Assault OR First Aid (with a preference to keep RA depending on the encounter)

+1 Hercules +1 Valkyrie +1 Hall of Heroes

Hall of Heroes complements Ms Marvel's strategy a lot: you get paid for doing what the deck wants to do, and you're spending almost every turn in alter-ego at some point, so you can reliably trigger it.

Hercules seems right at home here, and is also definitely worth it at 6; he just gets easier to play the more minions you have. There seems to be plenty of left in the deck to get the kicker from Valkyrie fairly often, but even if you don't, that's only 1 damage that you've lost. Hulk is still not reliable, but he's still a 2-cost meatshield that can swing after a couple of tanked hits.

Stay tuned for updates after Hulk finally releases. The spoilers so far are very promising :D

Yeah, she can do some serious bust double playing some events. I don't find myself using Uppercut all that often since Big Hands does the job better resource cost wise and is much easier to play twice in a single turn. But it has it's moments. Melee I have found is a nice multiplayer card and like to run 3 of in those situations since it is a bit situational in some games. Nice write-up.

You like Bruno Carrelli? I don't tend to get much out of him or play him, but I like Aamir Khan and Nakia Bahadir a lot along with Biokinetic Polymer Suit. I almost don't typically run the Avengers Mansion or Helicarrier with her just cause she finds them pretty quickly, but I do run some of the new cheaper 2 cost resource generic cards to fill in some gaps. It will be interesting to see what events come out that support her as time goes on.

Th best use I’ve found for Bruno is to park situational until I new them: Chase Them Down or Melee when there are no minions out; Power of Protection with no aggression targets in hand. The temptation is to try to build a “perfect turn” but it’s too awkward because you need to be in Kamala form and have the right card in hand. I actually find it easier to build combos on the bottom of the deck with Amir.

Bruno Carrelli is literally Ms. Marvel's solution to her hand size problem - she often can't keep in hand all the stuff she needs to, so she stores a few essential but not immediately needed pieces of her plan on Bruno. Also a good way to not cycle your deck too quickly - alongside Aamir Khan.

Hi! I have a doubt, is mandatory to exhaust Msmarvel after use his skill?

Jan 08, 2020 Voidrift · 46

If you're referring to her Ms. Marvel ability Morphogenetics, yes. Exhaustion is specifically called out as the cost to use her ability. It is not mandatory to use Morphogenetics after you play an event. So you could play a Big Hands to get rid of a minion, but save the Morpho for Sneak By if threat is currently worse, or vice versa.

@Bronzesorry for the late reply. here's what i wrote on BGG about Bruno

my best advice with Bruno is on turns where you swap from Ms Marvel to Kamala, put any extra hero action events on him. that seems to be his best-use case, but on turns where you start as Kamala Khan, one thing that really helps is:

first, use Aamir, Teen Spirit, Avengers Mansion, etc. and use all of your card draw,

second: look at your cards and costs, taking into account Ms Marvel ability, Nakia, her suit, Helicarrier, etc. after you've done that, if you realise that you'll have a card leftover that you won't be able to play, put it on Bruno before you swap

it requires a bit more extra accounting, but it takes your Ms Marvel plays from good to great, as you can squeeze out some excess stuff you wouldn't have used anyway on previous turns and pull them back for a big turn later on.

i would also point out that this is something you'd probably want to get better at doing solo games instead of multiplayer.

and all of that said, i seem to be extremely unlucky as Ms Marvel and almost always draw treacheries that force me to discard an upgrade or support, and Bruno ends up drawing the short straw every time (once he even had a card tucked away on him). i've only used him to his full potential in one game, but it felt really strong. i think i would put him down on the bottom of the list of Ms Marvel's strong cards, underneath her alter-ego ability, Aamir, and Nakia, but i also think i've been rather unlucky with him and don't fault the card, just my plays or my luck.

i might end up saying that he's really bad, but i haven't ruled him out just yet.

@Voidrift thanks!

Jan 10, 2020 macrobat · 1

There is only two in the core set of “chase them down” are you sure it’s not 2 or do you have two core sets?

Jan 10, 2020 macrobat · 1

@dr00 sorry can’t edit my post but my question was for you

Jan 10, 2020 dr00 · 1924

@macrobatthere are 3 copies in the core set.

there is a full playset of every card in the core set, so unique aspect cards (like Tigra and Hulk) are just 1, Power of... cards (like The Power of Aggression) are 2, but every other aspect card is 3. Also, all the basic cards have 4 copies (so you can have 4 players with 1 copy of each out of the core)

perhaps you're just looking at the starter decks for Spider-man/Captain Marvel? those are just made from the existing cards. you'd have some cards left over that weren't used if you follow those. hope this helps.

I've been playing Ms Marvel/Aggression a lot recently, and absolutely love the deck. One issue I have found in solo, though, is when you're in alter-ego and draw Advance she can end up just adding all the threat to a scheme in a single turn. Against Klaw especially, not only is it possible but it's likely he'll put all 8 threat down in a single phase if you're not prepared. I've taken to adding in some copies of Emergency to counter - with Shrink it can be a very timely prevention of 3 threat going on the scheme.

Jan 21, 2020 dr00 · 1924

@Old Benhey, thanks for the comment and glad you're enjoying this too! i've also found that as a problem for solo. i generally play two-handed a lot, but i think i should try some more true solo. Rhino is another example of a villain who can seemingly win from nowhere

about Emergency, i wonder if it works with Shrink. i have a feeling that 'remove' and 'reduce' are not synonyms (as far as the game is concerned) and therefore don't combo. i couldn't find an answer though, but i'm fine assuming they work together for now. Emergency already has enough trouble as it is lol. we gotta give it something

Just built a pretty similar deck for my first games with Ms.Marvel - I thought Avengers Mansion felt misplaced - have you been able to make use of it in your games? (True solo).

Also, what is the explanation for Melee + Embiggen being 5/5 and not 3/3+2? (I have not really followed the discussion after the initial reveal - wanted to wait untilI I got the packs).

Jan 24, 2020 dr00 · 1924

@thebaker Avengers Mansion is a very good card. it's not a priority given that she has so much really strong card draw, but it's still really strong. i typically play 2-handed solo, but i do some true solo as well and really like it.

the ruling was given on facebook. i don't have a link to it, but it was confirmed that Embiggen! works with Melee that it essentially increases the value by 2, so it goes from 3/3 to 5/5

Jan 26, 2020 thebaker · 1

@dr00 Thanks! I agree that AM is good, but I felt I never really had time to play it in this kind of deck. But I guess when you play true solo against expert Mutagen Formula you don´t really have time for anything . . .

Anyway, cool deck, and as you write, will be even more fun after Thor.

I always play alone. Klaw is hard to beat. The only way is to have a Wiggle Room and some theft engine handy. The rest goes alone. My idea is to avoid the alter ego as much as possible. When I use it, it is to find the Wiggle that I don't have! The deck is amazing, they are very interesting sirens. I see tremendous use of Nick Fury.
