Wizkids‘ next organized play event for their popular Dice Masters game features characters from the darker side of Marvel Comics. Marvel Dice Masters: Marvel Knights OP allows players to participate at local events help by their local game store and where they can win cards for Black Widow, Daredevil, and the Punisher.
Check with your local store to see if they’re participating so you can try to win the below!
Black Widow is a popular character and card in the Dice Masters game, especially her Avengers vs X-Men “Tsarina” die and card.
Here, Black Widow is the participation card using the die from the Marvel Dice Masters: Amazing Spider-Man set. It’s an alternate art card featuring cover art from Black Widow (2014) #13.
The “Stinger” version of the card is the second best version currently of the character as a cheap 2 cost shield that also features Aftershock. Aftershock allows you to deal 1 damage to a target character die or player when Black Widow is KO’d. That opens up some cool options for players especially with so many using KO to trigger various affects in the games.
As a participation prize, this is a solid card with some cool artwork.
One of the two prize cards in the set, this one is pretty cool for the art, the text and the fact it creates a new affiliation in the game.
The first thing that stands out to me is that you’re able to use the die from both Marvel Dice Masters: Amazing Spider-Man and Marvel Dice Masters: Age of Ultron. Both sets feature Daredevil and the stats for the dice for each set is the same. The brown coloring for the card makes me believe that the Marvel Dice Masters: Amazing Spider-Man die is the one you’re supposed to be using.
The die also is one of two in this set with the affiliation “MK” for Marvel Knights, the other being the Punisher also in the set. There aren’t others so far with this affiliation, but expect it down the road, especially due to the popularity of Marvel’s Netflix shows.
The card to me feels like a Sidekick killer, where you’d get it out early and with its ability you’d be able to deal damage and possibly take none. The 3 purchase cost and cheap fielding cost makes it an interesting addition to a swarm team.
The other prize for this organized play event is the return of the Punisher. We haven’t seen this character since the Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs X-Men set, the first to ever been released. So, for those who started playing after or don’t have access to that set, this card is a bit less useful unlike the above two which use dice from more recent sets.
This card has the “MK” affiliation like Daredevil above and with a cost of 6 to purchase, it’s a bit pricey. But, for that price you get some solid defensive/offensive abilities. The card allows you to deal damage to your opponent of an equal amount you take due to an opposing “when fielded” ability. That’s a solid ability especially with Green Goblin “Gobby” still being a popular card and die to use in tournaments.
So, the use of this one is pretty straight forward, plop him in the field and smile as your deterrent causes havoc.
