Card Evalutions

This is a, uh, pretty underwhelming set of reveals. But let's go through them real quick.

  • Cubby is a character that goes into a location deck. You can easily pump him to 6 Strength, which isn't bad for a 4-drop. But, interestingly, there is no limit to the amount of times you can move Cubby in one turn. If you have a Map of Treasure Planet on board and two locations with 1 movement cost, you can move Cubby back and forth between the two locations as many times as you want for free, effectively giving him infinite strength! Realistically, you'll move him once and then challenge something and that's it. But if we ever get a character that scales in lore off of their current strength, Cubby could become a combo piece in an OTK deck.
  • This Peter Pan, if you have a Tinker Bell in play, can become a Rafiki - Mysterious Sage. Rafiki has already been outclassed by Madam Mim - Fox and so has this Peter Pan.
  • Starkey gets another vanilla card, this time in Emerald. And yeah... not much else to say. It's a vanilla, you don't want to play this except maybe in limited formats.
  • Slightly is another Evasive card for Ruby. A 4/3 body isn't terrible but he has only 1 lore. You usually want your Evasive cards to be lore generating threats, not challengers. This makes him worse than Pongo - Ol' Rascal and Minnie Mouse - Stylish Surfer. He might see play as a counter to other Evasives (he deals well with Goofy - Daredevil, for instance), but he is going to be extremely meta-dependent.
  • Patch is a new puppy for the 101 Dalmatians deck. A 3/4/1 for 4-cost isn't all that exciting though. And his ability is just mid and you can't activate it immediately and you have to decide to use it instead of questing. This little menace is altogether not that menacing.
  • Genie - Itty Bitty Living Space is a reprint of Aurora - Regal Princess. Aurora isn't the worst 2-drop out there, but she has mostly fallen out of the meta in favor of 2-drops with an ability. I feel this Genie is in the same boat. The art is hilarious though. An early contender for best art in the set!
  • Nala is yet another vanilla card. She has the Piglet - Very Small Animal stat line. It's not a bad stat line, but again, at this point in the game's lifecycle, you want cards that do something. Vanillas are just not going to be seeing play unless they have a very powerful Floodborn coming behind them. And while I'm sure we'll see a Floodborn Nala at some point, just don't know if it will be in this set or not.
