While working on Okami's Ronan the Accuser, I had an idea for Kl'rt, the Super Skrull. I figured he'd be a fun addition to the deck and work well (or against) the F4.






(Alternatively you can use this guy affiliated with my Enemies of the Galaxy team)






Common 1: Shape Shift
Instinct
Cost: 4
Printed: 2*
Each player reveals their hands. You may play the focus effect of any card in any player's hand.

Common 2: Stretch and Clobber (Mr. Fantastic and the Thing)
Strength
Cost: 5
Printed: 3*
Focus -> 3 - 1 attack and draw a card.

Uncommon: Secret Invader (Invisible Woman)
Covert
Cost: 6
Printed: 3*

Instinct: Each other player reveals a Covert hero or discards a hero with a recruit icon. You gain 1* for each card discarded this way.
Focus -> 3 KO card in your hand or discard pile.

Rare: Revenge for Tarnax (Human Torch)
Ranged
Cost: 8
Printed: 6*
Focus -> 3* You get 3 attack and gain a bindings.
Strength: Each player reveals an Instinct hero. You may give a bindings from your hand or discard pile to any player who doesn't.


What do you think?

SHAPESHIFT

I like it, though it counts on other people recruiting Super-Skrull due to most matchup combinations not having focus keywords on heroes, but the rest of his cards do have focus, so there's that.

STRETCH AND CLOBBER

I found out the hard way commons max out at 2 on printed values. They can be 2+ but never solid printed 3.

UNCOMMON AND RARE

No problems there.

OVERALL

I like that the Super-Skrull is taking the best out of each F4 member.

Cool!

I'm thinking of making a Fantastic Four adversary group, so if you have any ideas, you may start thinking/posting them.

I could always make stretch and clobber cost 4, give 2 recruit and 2 focus for 1 attack and just make him draw one card without focus. However, my precedent was actually the Thing's green common which is a 5 cost with a focus 3 that gives attack. I just made it 1 attack and one draw.

Well, actually, the "never" is an extreme. It's more like usually its not 3 as Cyclops just proved to me.

Well then...er....whatever feels right?

I think I like the combined effect under focus better, to give more of an idea that SS can emulate both or all of them at the same time.

I agree. Here's the Art by the way.

Shape Shift
 


Stretch and Clobber
 


Secret Invader (might rename this one to something forcefield related)
 


Vengeance for Tarnax

I had some errors in the images the first few uploads -- the Focus arrow got stuck to the card name. Fixed it above.

Some typos:

SHAPESHIFT

"You may copy the Focus effect of any card any revealed this way."

INPENETRABLE should be IMPENETRABLE

Also, its printed recruit should be 3+.

Haha...I think it's prudent to give at least a couple of weeks of non-activity to any design just to make sure. Even then, these are usually theoretical prototypes until playtested, always subject to change.

I think I gotta put that in small print somewhere for my cards.

I'm not really mad, I can live with a typo here or there. C'est le vie.

I usually wait to see if anything further is mentioned on the forums before I print. Nothing here for a few days, so I thought I was safe. I know better, I just got too excited.

I did remove the Masters of Evil before I sent the latest round for printing, glad I did as more great cards got added there.

BTW, printerstudio has 40% off right now.
