I was pondering after playing Thunder and Lightning. Does Loki/Thor be able to last for more than 1 turn because often opponent would most likely have Raven in their hands to immediately remove these Asgardians from the board?

When it is a good time to use Loki/Thor to take advantage of 4 Actions? Do you think most likely is to help build the board state bu playing more cards into your columns.

Use them later in the game when your opponent has used up most of their Ravens.

Alternatively, don't use Loki/Thor. They will make you burn through your deck faster and that's not necessarily good.

If you have them early on, I would keep them in my hand until I feel like I'm going to lose because I'm stuck with one row of cards (1 action) and I feel the noose tightening.

Agreed. Seems like they usually last a round or two.

But don't forget, you can also get them back from your discard pile sometimes and use them again. Depends on your: hand, strategy, opponents set-up, etc.

Usually it seems like it gives me some breathing room, but I never plan on it lasting for long.

Do you think it is a good idea to use Loki/Thor to put Odin's Ring/Crown to the back of a column (perhaps after we know Nightmare has been discarded)?

Can you clarify this question? Why would you need Loki or Thor to put the ring or crown in the back of the column?

I thought if you have the ring in your hand and is being threatened by constant 'sniping' of the opponent Raven, we could put use the 4 actions provided to put the ring down on the board and then push it to the far end or at least the 3 row of a column.
