So far he's been able to do most of the challenges so he can unlock different characters, and but now we are at the one where we need to win 10 matches. He has the basics of how to play down, and most times can beat the computer on the easy quests, but is struggling against real people, (he gets really frustrated when other players start to chain attacks). So far he's won one battle, but lost many more. I've tried to go through the links in the first page, but it is a bit overwhelming and not all the links still work.

    Any basic tips on deck building? I've tried to build a some decks with him, but he is mostly concerned about his favorite characters, and I don't think they are particularly balanced one way or another. Should I setup a balanced deck and try to get cards from each factor? Or are their certain characters I should focus on? Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to simply start playing the game for him, but I do want to help him get setup so he isn't at any obvious disadvantages (besides just turning 6 and still learning to read).
    Well specific character/them decks will depend entirely on what cards you have available. In the absence of your card inventory and given a child will be playing the deck, I would stick to a very simple formula - a mono deck with scale damage cards.

    You want 33 cards of the same factor and 7 other cards that block that same factor.
    Try to fill a secondary utility with the 7 "block" cards: keeper removal, power bonus, damage bonus etc.
    In your 33 mono factor cards you want to make sure you have 6 or 7 of each block color.
    Stay away from high power cards (level 9 and up), you won't need them.
    Distribute your cards over a bell curve of power levels, not too much high and low end... more in the middle.
    Scale damage: Look for cards of these power level/damage ratios: 1-3, 2-4, 3-5, 4-6, 5-7, 6-8, 8-12 etc.

    Play strategy: Just keep pounding away with your mono color, keep your other color(s) only to block with unless you are certain your opponent does not have that factor in their deck then use them for their secondary utility. Do not block cards doing less than 4 damage to you ever, unless they are keepers or have other undesirable effects (chaining more cards etc)!

    I believe you will get a quite decent win ration with this deck against randoms.

Most of us would tell your son to build a "mono" deck (a deck of all one color) or a "dual or duo" deck (20 cards of one color + 20 of another). Another option is for you to build a hero on another account and play cards with your son (if you have another computer).

You can focus specifically on one or two characters, because characters card usually complement each other, but it's difficult to do if you don't have the right cards. Just check what effect cards you put into the deck and if they complement certain characters or themes, try to build a deck more around that theme. For example cards like ‘Quick Save’ work with Fantastic Four decks whereas ‘Brain Drain’ works with X-Men decks.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll go through and make him a good deck today and see how it goes. I want him to learn how to play, and build some confidence in playing the game, and I think this will be a great start. Thanks again!

    So I'm guessing that's a "No" as far as hearing official word?

    Honestly, I think the physical card game is DOA. UD did NOTHING to promote it when it was first released. My comic shop had to go through all sorts of hoops to even get the game. It was never listed in Previews or GTM. Then the set had a bunch of misprints in a game that already had every card designed! Finally, the second release (which once again had no promotion at all) actually had a different back to the cards! D'Oh!

    The UD website doesn't even have the second set even listed anywhere! I think UD just wanted a quick buck, saw that the cards were already designed and signed on. Heck, I'd be happy if they sold card singles for Armored Spidey, Arctic Iron Man, and White Phoenix on their website for $50.00 a piece and called it a day. They'd make some money that way and we could all stop scratching our heads over the physical card game.

    Was just wondering something. What happens if you have Ace of Hearts in play and the top card of your deck is Thief and Rogue? Do you draw it and heal 1?

    I think you would just draw it. At least the computer would. Ace of Hearts says "...If it's Gambit draw it. If it's Rogue, heal 1." Everything goes in order, so since the first command is "draw it", you would draw it, and then it's no longer on the top of the deck, so it can't go to the "heal 1" part of the card.

    I remember there used to be a spreadsheet on the Wiki that allowed you to filter cards by team, factor, etc. I think it was called "Test," but that name is given to something completely different now. Does anyone know if that spreadsheet still exists or where to find it?

    Yeah, you could manipulate it to just display certain levels, damage, rarity, anything. Like, "show me elemental attacks less than level 4 that block tech." It was great!

    I remember that list as well. I have it bookmarked and you're right - it's gone, replaced with something else. I would love someone from the Wiki to tell us where it's been moved to! Hate to think it disappeared altogether!
