    Just champed Sabertooth, and have been messing around with him in the latest event where he's featured.  He's working surprisingly well with Domino (to power his black) and Magik, who brings out protect tiles every time you activate anybody's power, and possibly feeding Sabertooth's red in case you get a lot of purple.  Other than Iron Man cascading into enough yellow to cast back-to-back Recharges on turn 3 and 4, there wasn't much chance for the enemy teams to fire off any powers.

    I've wondered what Sabretooth and Carnage could do together with someone like Medusa I guess. Carnage puts up so many enemy strike tiles that it should trigger Sabretooth's passive quite a lot.

    Good thought, but it sadly doesn't work.  Carnage puts out attack tiles, and Sabretooth only cares about matching strikes.  Medusa plus Carnage is still a good team, but Sabretooth doesn't add much synergy to the team.  Craven or Prowler, on the other hand...

    Ah, sorry! I thought I was onto something there. :(   I love using Carnage so much I'm always trying to find different combos to maximize him. Right now I've been using Hawguy, Bullseye and Carnage for a lot of fun.

    I don't have him, yet, much less a usable one so this is pure speculation, but Medusa, Carnage & 4* Juggernaut could be interesting.  Juggernaut will tank a lot and provide random board shake off the blue AP Medusa provides.  Certainly probably not as efficient as others, but this is the fun team thread after all...

    Just fought a champed Iceman (Bobby drake)/Hawkeye (Clint) team in the juggernaut pvp. It was wild. Good job whoever put that team together.

    I have Juggy but only 3 covers in. Your theory sounds solid though.

    With Magik boosted I just paired her with IM40. For me it's insane damage, 188k and I've only just champed her. It's a lot of AP but as soon as it's fired it's pretty much game done with the defence tiles she throws out as well.

    3*Wolverine, 4*Deadpool, Bishop
    Once you fire Wolverine's green, enemies matches easily triggered Deadpool's passive and Bishop's red and blue passive. Add in Deadpool's purple, these abilities all boosted by the strike tiles created.

    This one's hilarious on goons and mindless ones. Bishop takes a beating though.

    My Bobby Drake only has 2 covers, but using him in his essential with OML and Kitty was super fun... Can only imagine what it would have been like if I had any green covers for him.

    Also Kitty, OML and Clint are hilariously fun in PVE. 

    Thor, God Doom and Strange were also a super team for me against Nova and the mindless ones.

    Found myself a new Stormfinite team for 5* Storm. Pair her with Kamala Khan and Quake, and basically destroy any red or black tiles (purple as a third) with storms green and quakes red. Use KK’s purple to drop more green on the board, and storm’s yellow to turn team up into whatever colour you want/is most present on the board.

    when you can, use storm’s black to create more cascades and do team damage

    Champed my first 5-star today: Okoye! 
    Now I will have to deal with a lot of champed Kitty/Gr4cket/Bishop teams in Shield sim.
    So I tried this counter-team: Okoye&Bishop&Howard (levels 453/279/279) bringing 2 blue AP into the match.
    Could match two strikes on my first turn. Enemy's matches triggerd my Bishop's passive of course and he got killed after two turns but the enemy's Bishop also got killed on my third turn. I had 10 blue for Howard on my second turn to remove the remaining 5 strikes and stun Kitty for three turns.
    With nothing to buff Kitty and Grocket were no match for Okoye and Howard.
    Not afraid of having a single 5-star champion anymore.
    If you only have 1 5* okoye is one of the best hands down. Single 5* champ play is really fun. I started with daredevil myself and he had tons of good matchups with the 4* tier.

    Enjoy your new experience.

    I've played a bit with America Chavez, Hood and Felicia (level 188 still) and they are super fun. Sure I'm using a lot of health but the matches are really quick.

    Seconding this!

    I entered 5-star Land with Okoye as my solitary 5* Champion and she is A LOT of fun with just about every other character as she makes almost everyone better (everyone except Emma, and 1-2 others who I cannot think of).
    She has her true heal and as the sole 5* she's tanking most colours so she saves you a lot of health kits.
    And her red can be great in a pinch for setting up matches or taking out dangerous enemy tiles, such as monster-boosted Strike, Attack or Protects, or countdowns that are about to go off.
    And if you only have one 5* Champion, you're typically almost always only going to face another, single 5* Champion team.

    Dr. 5trange and Jessica Jones have been my go to for a while, I’ll sub in different 3rds depending on the situation but it’s most often 5* Daredevil, and sometimes Kitty, though of those Kitty is the only one I don’t have champed and I’m slowly working on that.

    I’ve left my Kitty purposely unchamped so Daredevil will tank over her. At about 10 levels higher he’ll tank green/yellow/team-up and usually one or two of blue/black. If your yellow is high enough on Kitty it’s a pretty good climbing team for offense and sustainability. Just have Matt tank as much as possible so he keeps making strikes below half health. Then have Kitty buff the strikes. Slower than Grocket and way easier to kill on defense, but super health pack efficient. 

    I’ve been playing the team less as I’ve been using other pairings more (Daredevil/Doom at the beginning of climbs; Gritty at the end) and I’ve been thinking maybe it isn’t worth it leaving her unchamped anymore.  It’s a good/fun team but I think I get hit more having a level 445 Kitty. If champed, the 6 saved will propel her to level 456.

    But for you who can’t champ her yet, the team is definitely worth trying.

    I've been using Spinal Tap's "None More Black" team vs Apocalypse.  X-Force Wolverine and Domino (both at 3/5/5) and Cloak and Dagger at 5/3/5.  Needless to say, it generates a lot of black on the board thanks to the passives of C&D and Domino.  That helps prevent Apoc from getting Red AP, but also helps create black tiles to help get rid of those countdown tiles.  Black is also his strongest color, so XFW's Surgical Strike can do massive damage, which will allow more black tiles to fall down thanks to Domino.  Domino's red is a half-strength Surgical Strike, which can still do a lot of damage.

    Sabretooth and Domino are quite fun together. I’m still working on a third though.

    Edit: I found my third. It’s 5* Storm
