Card Evaluations

Some real quick evals:

  • I loved the kakamora from the Moana movie. I had hoped we'd get a kakamora tribal deck but it looks like they will just go into your pirate decks. Not this card though, as it isn't very good.
  • This Chief Tui is even more underwhelming than the first card he got, Chief Tui - Respected Leader.
  • We finally have a Floodborn Peter Pan. He's not the best card though. He might find a place in full Evasive decks, as a 4/5 Evasive with 2 lore for 4-cost isn't the worst. His You're Next ability is likely going to be irrelevant most of the time, but if Pirate decks become meta, it will be a nice counter to them.
  • This Captain Hook is the anti-Peter Pan card. This is an even more narrow counter than the Floodborn Pan's anti-Pirate ability, so I don't think you are running this for that ability alone. Nemesis, however, is a strong ability and if you have a Jolly Roger out and can give this Hook Rush, you have a mini Scar - Vicious Cheater on your hands. A nice card for Pirate decks.
  • The Bare Necessities is Be Prepared's worst enemy. This card is an auto-include in any Amber song deck, such as Steelsongs. You just sing this at some point before turn 7 and discard your opponent's Be Prepared and then you pretty much win the game on the spot. Not to mention, you can target other powerful actions such as Dragon Fire, A Whole New World, or Let It Go. This is going to be a meta-defining card.
  • Gramma Tala has Sisu - Divine Water Dragon's ability but it is on play, instead of on quest. This is usually better, since you get the draw right away. Not to mention this Gramma Tala is inkable and has a better stat line than Sisu, as she trades with Madam Mim - Fox. A very nice common card for Sapphire decks.
  • Maui's Fish Hook is a way to make your Maui - Hero to All better, letting you give him Evasive or +3 Strength when he comes down. I don't think that is really worth paying the 3 ink to setup this up though and you definitely don't want to use this item without Maui on board.
  • Nani is Goofy - Musketeer without the Musketeer ability but with one extra lore. The extra lore is going to be better for most decks and Goofy already was seeing occasional play. So I think she may see some play, especially so if Bodyguard decks take off with the new Little John card.
