Your challenge is:

To build four 8 character 20 dice teams, using the Marvel Dice Masters Avengers vs X-Men characters and action cards.

The rules:

1. Your teams must match the following four themes:

i. Avengers.
ii. X-Men.
iii. Villains.
iv. No theme.

2. You must have one team for each of the four themes.

3. No two, or more, teams may use the same character (regardless of variant).

4. You must not use Promo/OP Prize characters or actions.

5. You may choose to specify two Basic Actions to be used with the team, but this is optional, and, if you do, they may be used in more than one team.


And...

GO!

Not sure I understand. Does the X-men team have to be exclusively X-men? What exactly do you mean by following a theme?

Predominantly X-Men (similarly for Avengers and Villains).

It's just a bit of fun, not to be taken too seriously.

I do not like this idea, each team is too focused one way and would get crushed by the no theme.

I'm still confused that they made a game with team affiliations and only made 7 villains for a 8 character game

Let's see if we can get this ball rolling!

Here are my 4 teams...

Avengers:
(x3) Captain America, American Hero
(x4) Human Torch, Playing with Fire
(x2) Iron Man, Playboy
(x3) Hawkeye, Longbow
(x4) Nick Fury, Mr. Anger
(x1) Thor, God of Thunder
(x2) War Machine, Parnell Jacobs
(x1) Mjolnir, Forged by Odin
(x3) Distraction
(x3) Gearing Up

X-Men:
(x4) Beast, Mutate #666
(x3) Spider-Man, Webslinger
(x3) Storm, 'Ro
(x2) Colossus, Unstoppable
(x4) Deadpool, Assassin
(x2) Gambit, Ace in the Hole
(x1) Professor X, Principal
(x1) Wolverine, Canucklehead
(x3) Invulnerability
(x3) Take Cover

Villains:
(x2) Doctor Doom, Reed Richards' Rival
(x1) Doctor Octopus, Megalomaniac
(x4) Green Goblin, Goblin-Lord
(x3) Mystique, Unknown
(x3) Venom, Mac Gargan
(x4) Angel, Soaring
(x2) Loki, Gem-Keeper
(x1) Magneto, Sonderkommando
(x3) Force Beam
(x3) Thrown Car

No theme:
(x4) Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze
(x3) Mr. Fantastic, Brilliant Scientist
(x3) Punisher, McRook
(x1) Doctor Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts
(x3) Nightcrawler, Abandoned
(x1) Silver Surfer, Sentinel
(x2) Thing, Grim Ben
(x3) Nova, The Human Rocket
(x3) Inner Rage
(x3) Power Bolt

As, or when, I complete my set, or make some proxies, I'll likely tweak them somewhat, but, as I wanted teams I could play right now, I gave myself the added constraint of using only cards I currently own.

I also chose to give myself another additional constraint - not using any Basic Action in more than one team - but, as one can simply double up the dice for shared Basic Actions, I'm likely to change that as I play the team and get a better feel for how they work.

Got a chance to try my X-Men team against my Avengers team today, and, afterwards decided to tweak the X-Men team to this:

(x4) Beast, Mutate #666
(x3) Spider-Man, Webslinger
(x4) Storm, 'Ro
(x2) Colossus, Unstoppable
(x1) Phoenix, Ms. Psyche
(x2) Professor X, Principal
(x3) Deadpool, Jack
(x1) Wolverine, Canucklehead
(x3) Invulnerability
(x3) Take Cover

Basically swapped out Gambit for Phoenix (for her global primarily), changed which version of Deadpool was in the team, and adjusted the dice counts.

Need to test this new version, but I think it and the Avengers team will be quite well balanced now.

Has anyone else tried this challenge, and come up with any teams, yet?
