Card Changes

Aero: 5/8 -> 5/7

Developer Comments – Aero’s effectiveness is excellent for both obstruction and control. We previously increased Aero’s stats to where they are now, but since players figured out how to use it, we thought it would be a good idea to lower the power a bit.

Leading : 6/4 -> 6/3

Developer Comments: Many players are picky about Leader’s effectiveness, and the ability to stall play and make it difficult for other 6 cost cards to play has often been an issue. Going to lower the power a bit and see if any more mods are needed later.

New : 1/2 -> 1/1

Developer Comment: Nova’s effect is much stronger than other 1-cost cards, so we didn’t think it was appropriate for Nova to have the average stats of a 1-cost card.

Drax: 4/4

When Revealed: If your opponent played a card in this zone this turn, give it +4 Power. -> 4/5: If your opponent has played a card in this zone this turn, +3 power.

Groot: 3/3 Reveal: If your opponent played a card in this zone this turn, +3 Power. -> 3/4 If your opponent has played a card in this zone this turn, +2 power.

Developer Comments: While you may think Guardians’ effects will create a lot of fun, it can also feel like an all or nothing game. We hope to increase the base stats of Drax and Groot to reduce the risk of playing the cards and increase their appeal.

Hazmat: 2/1 -> 2/2

Developer Comments: We know there are some Hazmat combo decks that seem powerful, but overall Hazmat performance isn’t great. So in this update, we want to bump it up a notch.

Black cat: 3/6 -> 3/7

Developer Comments: Since Black Cat is rarely used, we wanted to increase its appeal by increasing its power.

Nakia: 3/1 -> 3/2

Developer Comments: We think Nakia’s effect is an interesting mechanic, but it currently has a very low success rate. We want to improve it a bit to make it a more attractive option.
