I've been thinking for a while about doing some Hero decks that use Divided cards to represent a whole team all working together, kind of like the Peter's Allies deck in Homecoming (but with actual Heroes in them).

Here's my ideas for the Avengers...

Avengers (this is the Hero name, card names are in Bold below)
Avengers affiliated, because d'uh...

Common 1:
Hawkeye
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/a/...
Tech
2 Attack
Avengers: Choose one: Draw a card or rescue a Bystander.
Black Widow
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/f/...
Covert
2 Recruit
Covert: Choose one: Rescue a Bystander or KO a card from your hand or discard pile.
Cost: 4

Common 2:
Captain America
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CxMKwaLUUAAAUZX.jpg:large
Strength
1+ Recruit
Once per turn you may reveal this card instead of gaining a Wound.
Savior: You get +1 Recruit for each Hero Class you have.
Iron Man
https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/f...
Tech
1 Attack
Tech: Draw a card.
Cost: 3

Uncommon:
Mighty Thor
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/b/...
Ranged
3 Recruit
0+ Attack
Once this turn, if you have made at least 6 Recruit, you get +3 Attack.
Incredible Hulk
https://i.pinimg.com/originals/14/e6/90/14e690e044dd93807749...
Strength
3+ Attack
Choose 1, 2 or 3. Berserk that many times. Then gain a Wound for each card with an Attack icon you discarded this way.
Cost: 6

Rare:
Assemble!
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/2/...
Instinct
3+ Attack
Whenever you defeat a Villain or Mastermind this turn, rescue two Bystanders.
Savior: You get +1 Attack for every two Bystanders in your Victory Pile.
Cost: 8

Feedback Welcome.

You broke rule #1, no Phasing on Kitty Pryde, EVER.

As usual your cards look well balanced. I like the Prof X rare.

Looks good, i'd like to play test these. Is there a template out there that does divided cards or are you just using PSD to make these. I have legedit and a photoshop template for single cards but haven't found one for divided. I was just going to make one.

I tried my hand at making divided cards for the first time the other day. I used Legedit to make all of the cards, and then used GIMP to shrink them and put them side by side for the divided cards. I think it worked out pretty well. I've been trying my hand more at GIMP, because while Legedit is pretty easy to use, overall the results (if done well) look better out of GIMP or Photoshop.

I print customs onto photo-paper and then have a few decks of sleeved Double-backed cards. I slip the customs I want to use in before playing.

I just make the cards in legedit and then put the images in a word doc. For Divided cards, I put them half-size next to each other.

If you do play-test them, let me know how you get on. I’ve not tested them yet.

Played a solo game with the Avengers & the Uncanny X-Men (+plus Cyclops) against a Dark Alliance of Magneto and the Red Skull. I lost on turn 14 with Twists coming out too quick for me, I'd hit Magento and Red Skull once each, and could have actually defeated Red Skull earlier on when he only had one tactic, but I decided not to in the hope that his Master Strikes would thin my deck (they didn't). I thought the two sets were pretty fun to play, and had some nice interactions without being over or under-powered. I think I would have won, if I'd had a couple more turns, and/or been a little better at KOing. I got the Professor X rare but the only time it came up was in a hand full of SHIELD agents.

DFTG, You are always so active on here and I love your input into the game. I thought I would start to take a stab at creating your cards, to bring them to life. Here is the first one. What do you think, I took some liberties with the card names as you didnt have ones. I'm going to try to finish the others as well if that's okay with you.

Wow, this is really nice and all the cards are well-done! The combo looks like it'd be sick. I like how you built on each of the existing hero's main themes.

My only real complaint was Thor's odd pseudo-focus power. It seems like it'd be fine triggering automatically without spending the recruit, but I could be wrong.

That card looks really nice and high quality, I have no objections if you want to make more. I’m just pleased other people like the ideas.

Re the card names, my intention was to have ‘Avengers’ be the Hero Name, and then the Heroes’ names (eg Black Widow/Hawkeye etc) to be the Card Names, but if you want to do it differently go ahead.

Thanks and re Thor, I think I just thought that would be over-powered. With Divided cards I try and make sure each side is worth a little less than the card cost to balance against their versatility. I also aim to make it so you might want to play both sides. Thanks, for the feedback though, I’ve tweaked it a little to be more similar to how Lady Thor’s cards work, but reduced the Attack bonus.

Those look great.

Couple of minor errors.

On the rare:
-It should be Instinct not Ranged
-Savior should be bold
-it should be +1 per two bystanders (this was my error I mis-typed earlier when I switched which was the unconditional and Savior effect)

On Hulk:
-Berserk should be in Bold

Ps playing a game with FF and think i’m Going to increase some of their focus costs

As I am creating the Uncanny X-men I am noticing there is a lot of wound clear cards (if that makes sense) but only one card. Colossus that gains wounds, Is this how you intended the team to work or should there be another gain of a wound somewhere.

Check for errors please. I'll start on the others.


The Capt. America side of the above card has a covert icon when instead in needs a strength icon.

I decided to do the Fantastic Four one, but I went with more portrait-like pics instead of action ones, they kind of give me the feeling of them being people first, heroes second:

Thanks, I like those images, hadn’t gotten around to searching myself but that fits what I had in mind.

Ps I upped the Focus costs for Johnny and Ben Grimm by one point after my initial post as I found them a little too powerful in combination as they were during a play test. With costs of 2 and 1 you can focus 3 Recruit to get 3 Attack and draw a card, which is a bit over-powered. With costs of 3 and 2 it costs 5 Recruit for the same effect, which seems more reasonable for two 4 cost cards.
