Marquee Monday: The Jank Has Chosen

Tomorrow morning is Entourage! Yay!

Okay. Here’s something I was throwing around for Clone Saga.

Characters: 30
14x S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents – Army * Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
4x Speedball ♦ Penance – Painmonger
4x Wasp, Ultimates
4x Life Model Decoy – More Human than Human
4x Zazzala ♦ Queen Bee – Mistress of the Hive

Plot Twists: 16
4x Mobilize
4x Secret War – Team-Up
4x Origin Story
4x Blüdhaven Destroyed

Locations: 14
4x Triskellion, Ultimates
4x Evil Lair
4x The Science Spire
2x Birthing Chamber

This is just a general shell of what I kind of want to play, not optimized at anything. Do not try this at home etc.

It’s based on a Jank Has Chosen deck I saw awhile ago. Getting multiple Zazzalas into play really appeals to me. Of course, being able to clone Penance isn’t exactly inconsequentional either.

Spider-Friends – or more precisely Spider Clones, which from what I understand is the best deck in the format – has an unreasonably high amount of trouble with her, provided you recruit her hidden. The Queen Beeyotch can’t be PA’d profitably and is immune to both Omnipotence and exhaustion effects.

You do need to close before six or else they might drop Human Torch – Herald and then you’re just a terrible deck that’s gotten even worse.

Blüdhaven Destroyed is absrud. First, it is a huge burn effect that also cannot be PA’d.

Secondly, since your characters are either really small or hidden, your opponent is never going to lose board… which means this card can pretty realistically be Die for Darkseid! without even counting the bonus damage you can get from Zazzalas.

Triskellion is there to replay bounce effects, but you really want to re-use Blüdhaven Destroyed with it. Speaking of which: Are there any other good low drop Ultimates guy which can burn to the face? Help me out guys!

Anyways, I tried this deck out and it was okay, definitely could be better but it’s performing well killing on turn five quite regularly which is where we want it to be.

The problem is that a normal SHIELD Army deck can already do that. If you think about it… Wolverine – Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. * HYDRA pretty much fills the same roleZazzala does.

So yeah – mission failed!

Peace,

PS: Check back tonight/tomorrow at 12:00 AM PST for a grumblie!

  1. Just fyi, you’ve got 4x Life Model Decoy on your list twice.

  2. Removed. Fixed. Auto-Carded. Extended.

    Thanks JB!

  3. Patrick played this decklist, probably a better one. But I beat it with Spider Friends. I had SRA and and Mr Sinister into Human Torch.

  4. I still haven’t seen a Clone Saga deck that shouldn’t be running 4 Uncertain Legacy.
