I do but it is only concerning Guise's moves, not everyone else's.

Strip Legacy of his buffs and protections and hit him hard.  Hopefully Visionary can lock down his deck and everyone else dog piles on IL.  He has relatively few HP, so if folks come in swinging it should only take a round or two.  My advice is is to take the next round or two to build ourselves up, then have Guise zap the Meteor Storm.  The rest of us drop him to 21 HP over the rest of that round (so he doesn't flip), then knock him out the next round.

Visionary's eyes glow an intense blue-white as tendrils of psychic energy swirl and gently embed themselves in the collected heroes and their foe.  That should give me some degree of control over everyone's probability fields . . . (Play Mental Divergence) . . . but I think we should still offer our Dear Leader some guidance for his next move. (Power Turbulence on Iron Legacy)

Wait, why do I have to dump the storm? I'm one of the better damage dealers.

I think Armored Fortitude on top because we can zap it after it's played. Plus, Former Allies will play another card which we won't have any control over.  What do others think?

If you retrieve a Retcon, you can do both, since Retcon grants you an extra card play anyways.  Where Did I Leave that can allow you to pull one from the trash if you don't draw another one.

And to answer the original question, you go first in turn order, so it has to be you.  If someone after you does it, you still wont' be able to deal damage.  But the Retcon solution I mentioned can get around that.

I agree. If we can knock it out the round it's played, then it'd be inconsequential. Mental divergence is a blessing!

Sorry. Some things in RL that needed my attention...

Yeah. I agree with what most have said and planned. Mental Divergence was the one card i was really hoping for from Visionary. I think it's her most useful card. It can be used both for offense and defence. Very useful when one has powerful/useful ongoing defenses that break after 1 use. And Guise seems to have ongoing cards like that.

I'll play Crafty Assault to destroy 2 of IL's Superhuman Redirection Ongoing cards. Use Gazelle power to heal a bit more and draw a card to end my turn.

Just say when or in what round will we begin the attack on Iron Legacy guys.

So i can transform to Crocodile mode for more attack options.

It is now Wagner's turn



Start: Nothing

Play: Maintenance Level: At the end of the Environment turn, play the next Environment card. At the start of the Environment turn, if each player shuffles their trash into their Hero deck, destroy this card. When this card is destroyed, if "Self-Destruct Sequence" is in play, put this card on top of the countdown pile.

End: Maintenance Level plays Oxygen Leak: Reduce all Fire Damage by 3. At the end of the Environment turn, 1 Player may discard 1 card to destroy this card. At the start of the Environment turn, deal each Target X Toxic Damage, where X = the number of cards in the Environment trash.

Does anyone wish to discard a card to destroy Oxygen Leak?

I think while the Meteor Storm is still in effect, we really don't need to get rid of Oxygen Leak just yet.

And if Tachyon were to discard cards, it would be to her benefit if it were burst type cards (like Accelerated Assault) to power up her one shot attacks. Like Sonic Vortex and Lightspeed Barrage. Having a lot of burst type cards in your trash, you can use Lightspeed Barrage to deal a huge amount of damage against Iron Legacy.

i.e your "nuke".

On the other hand I do think we should go ahead and deal with Oxygen Leak now while there is no pressure to do so.  If Spade doesn't end up discarding anything I'm prepared to discard Demoralization - which is more useful against villains with lots of targets like Dawn or Voss.

The possibility that we may have not have the time to get rid of Oxygen Leak later on as more cards get played did cross my mind. Sure, i'm ok with one of you guys discarding a card you don't need to get rid of it.

True.  But as Outcast pointed out, there's another consideration: discarding a card with the "Burst" trait on it will pull dual duty - zap the environment card and build your "burst" engine.

You should discard *a* card, but maybe pick one with burst in the description. That way it makes other attacks stronger.

How do folks feel about dropping Meteor Storm this round? I'm OK with it.

According to your hand you have a copy already.

I think that might be a mistake because I used a Retcon the past two turns and haven't drawn one since. Not sure though.

Sorry, but yeah, that was my mistake.  Both copies of Retcon are in the trash.  This is why he reacted the way he did when it was suggested he be the one to destroy Meteor Storm and why I pointed out that he could always retrieve a Retcon from the trash.

Also, you could still play it this turn.  Your power gives you an extra card play, remember?  It would mean giving up a ton of damage though.  18 points of it, in fact.
