Panoptichrownage!

Remember how on Monday I was looking for an Origin Story effect

This card is going to be godlike for Blink spam.

The big thing being that you can Panoptichron Blink in response to her own ability, so that you she’s reshifted with a counter on her.

Turn one, Shift Blink for 1.
Turn two, Shift another Blink for 2.
Turn three, Shift a triage of four drops for 1.
Turn four, Shift a pair of four drops for 1 each.

Play one resource point to put a shift counter on the second Blink. You may now recruit her.

In response to her coming into play effect, Panoptichron her sticking the counters on the first blink. She is re-shifted, and gets a counter from her own effect.

Recruit the first Blink for free – the one who received the counters from Panoptichron – add another counter to the second Blink – making that two.

Pay your fourth resource point to play that Blink.

You have now earned three bonus counters on all your shifted four costs. So you get… five four drops and a three drop. That’s 23 resource points worth of guys instead of 10. The nice thing about shift is that you can do this out of order too. Even more sweeter… this set-up IS lethal with a single Common Bond.

Is this possible to natural into? We will have drawn twelve cards by turn four.

Subtract four – we’re rowing a card each turn – and we have eight. We need two Blinks and five characters and a single guy four drop for Common Bond.

So yeah… definitely possible.

Better pick up those Clash of Worlds too just in case we don’t have enough unique four drops : )

Then there’s the good way to use Panoptichron, courtesy of Lex Luthor Jr on VsRealms:

Turn 1:
-Lay Marvel Team-up in resource row.
-Play a 1-drop Exiles character

Turn 2:
-Lay Panoptichron
-Play Black Thorn #1
-Flip Marvel Team-Up and name Exiles and Checkmate

Turn 3:
-Lay Blind Sided
-Play Apokoliptian Zealots
-Flip Panoptichron
-Activate Panoptichron targetting Black Thorn #1
-Play Black Thorn #2
-Activate Black Thorn #2 on Panoptichron
-Activate Panoptichron targetting Black Thorn #2, putting 2 Shift counters on Black Thorn #1
-Remove the 2 Shift counters from Black Thorn #1 and put her into play
-Activate Black Thorn #1 on Panoptichron
-Activate Panoptichron targetting Black Thorn #1, putting 2 Shift counters on Black Thorn #2
-Remove the 2 Shift counters from Black Thorn #2 and put her into play

-Repeat 1,000 times

Hmm… gg?

Peace,

  1. Dude,

    You can shift around uniqueness.

    Putting a character into play using Shift DOES check the uniqueness rule (like Substitute and recruiting does).

    You’d lose a copy of blink. But it would be totally worth it.

    If not improbable to draw.

  2. Can’t. Can’t shirt around uniqueness.

    Sorry. Typo.

  3. I understand that, hence why you only get one Blink in the above example and why I alluded to a need for Clash of Worlds.
