    Something I had not thought of until I suddenly saw Kitty and Valkyrie together in Raawwwr PVP. Add Ronin if you got him and you have free strike tiles every turn. Match red and you get two attack tiles. Try to match green, red and purple and you have a lot of damage built up. Nice combo.

    I've been enjoying Skelethorkoye in Watch and Learn, as well as the "Class of 201_" events.  Having 2 stuns and an AOE among other options really complement thorkoye even if it's not exactly groundbreaking.

    Also been using Vulture plus cheap blue stunner to take out the Hammercap/Hawkeye teams, even if they just make for easy retals.

    For this new Spider-Man 2099 event, I’ve really been enjoying the 3* X-Men team of:
    -Mystique (5/3/5) (Featured)
    -Magneto (3/5/5) (Boosted)
    -Storm (5/5/3) (Boosted)

    If you primarily use the colors at five covers, there’s effectively no overlap.  Three solid damage-dealing powers, all of which can be conditionally excellent, good board shake and AP generation plus a stun on top of it all.  Magneto’s yellow and Storms’s black are even conditionally useful to flood the board with special tiles to counter traps and the like.

    OML/Hammond/Grocket. Hammond green and strikes ...things just die, i don't even notice it happening.

    So I finally champed OML with the fan favs vault. I heard he’s uber trash, and what makes matters worse is that being an older 5 and mine only being 450, he barely gets to do the one thing he’s good at (absorbing damage). That said, I had him on two teams I particularly liked. 

    1. OML/Daredevil/Doom

    Basically three true healers. While slow, you’ll never need a health pack unless someone is KOed, otherwise, let someone else tank and they’ll heal right back up. Logan only tanks black but it’s the color I chased most due to fueling Doom’s nuke, so he tanked plenty enough. 

    2. OML/Professor X/Kitty

    Chase 8 purple, choose Storm/black for professor’s power so he drops 5 attacks, Logan then passively drops two strikes. And it’s enough to get the Kitty train rolling. Attack Logan and he heals. Attack Professor and he sidesteps 75% damage. Very annoying to face on defense I’d imagine. Again Logan only tanks black here. 

    Also during my final push in anniversary sim I wanted to build around Bishop since I skip him like the plague. Paired him with Professor who is another good defensive character. Wasn’t sure who to use as a third X-Man, so just went with who I felt was the best defensive deterrent in Iceman. Worked out surprisingly well offensively and was a ton of fun.  I’m sure it garnered lots of skips. Super shocked how much I used Cyclops/blue for Professor’s power to clear a row full of CDs/repeaters to hit a lengthy stun at a key time. I really like when I get to use powers other than the AOE (Jean/green) and nuke (Wolverine/red). 

    I also bought the 250 CP cover for Ock (Carnage was close enough I probably could have waited but oh well). So am interested in teams he’d play well on.

    Very close on OML myself. I wasn’t going to champ him any time soon because he is usually super easy to dispatch due to his very low health pool. Sounds like some fun might be had with the right partners though.

    Edit: I skipped your ProfX team btw. I was actually interested in giving it a spin but unfortunately it was too risky for 9 points.

    Current favorite team in Class of 2019: Bishop, Prowler, 4 star Juggs. Ride the painbow, everyone!

    It’s actually not hard to dispatch I imagine. Ice will drain Bishops blue. And his little ping stuns are way less annoying than the 4 turn team stun lock when running Bish alone. Professor has the only real nuke and that’s IF the AI chooses the right purple power. I just figured it’d slow people down trying to quick hop. But those playing for wins or messing around could kill it easy. I just couldn't think of a better XMan to pair with Bish/Prof that would allow Bishop to be the only blue user and still be scary on D.

    It’s pretty basic but Thor/Domino/Ock was making free tentacles like crazy- plenty stuns and lots of blue to scoop up, keeping Thor in back and if you want you can refine the reactor pretty fast, but I imagine Thors green probably is the better choice
    You can also throw Bishop at Doc- the reactor will help his health and gives you a second color stun
    I wonder if you couldn’t get some weak synergy out of an OML/DD/doc? Its not spam cheap but the tentacles will keep the strikes out at a moderate pace, superior science also puts strikes & the CD resolving with the strikes and DD purps could be a finisher

    They are good together depending on levels and tanking situation. At similar levels Daredevil should tank more than 3 colours which makes this team quite good on offense. OML makes more strike tiles to speed up DD's healing, but he's a spectator at the back most of the time with him only tanking red, because black is Ock's dominant colour and yellow is DD's.

    My Ock tanks more than 3 colours in that team, so he takes too much damage while not utilising OML's and DD's healing efficiently. Ideally we want DD to at least tank green for Ock to make the team last longer.

    I've been running Domino/Kitty/Hela as a one-trick punching pony.  Generate black, dump a bunch of attack tiles, let Kitty do her thing.  If nothing else, it gives me an excuse to use my undercovered 5s (which are practically all of them)

    5* daredevil, bishop, mysterio. Just attack whoever mysterio stuns. They take silly damage from all 3 passives smacking them as bishop generates blue.

    To celebrate Ghost’s boost week, I’ve been cruising through Honor Among Thieves with:
    4* Ghost (3/5/5 w/Quantum Realm support)
    4* Black Cat (5/3/5)
    3* Dr Strange (5/3/5) 

    The goal of the team is to exploit the interaction of Strange’s yellow and Ghost’s Quantum Realm perk to go invisible few free (eventually) and up her boosted red damage from ~7,500 to ~19,000 (for a low Ghost champ—your mileage may vary).  Black Cat offers a green outlet, stun and situational AP theft (mostly green, purple or red this event from the goons).

    Depending on your scaling (I’m running this in SCL7) Black Cat could be subbed for someone who protects Strange more when Ghost goes invisible, but ideally they should have a black, green or yellow outlet, as otherwise those colors are wasted.

    In the class of 2019 PvP, I was shocked by how many defensive wins I got leaving out:

    Center: 4* Carnage 5/5/3 lvl 297
    Left: 4* Medusa 5/5/3 lvl 289
    Right: 4* Thanos 3/5/5 (not sure what level he was boosted to, but unboosted he's only 271)

    I would estimate I had an 80% defensive win rate.

    Order is key. You want Carnage making as many special tiles as possible as quickly as possible, so he is in the first slot. This way, Medusa's CD tile won't count against Carnage's cap. Also by having Carnage ahead of Thanos, Thanos will start converting tiles to Green the very first time Carnage lays out his first 3 enemy attack tiles.

    Offensively it was simple: deny the enemy's strongest colors. In the meantime, watch your team heal and grow the Green and Purple AP (Blue is a throw-away).

    Carnage, Prowler, Thanos was decent (especially with Prowler boosted) but required more healthpacks.

    Upon further playing, boosted 4* Luke Cage is objectively better than Black Cat against special tile spammers like the Mindless Ones (and it would make for the oddest MCU/MarvelTV cross-over episode ever).  Once Ghost goes invisible, Luke Cage is always in front no matter who makes the match, so no opponent special tiles have a chance with the Mindless Ones.  It’s a slow team (at least by forumite standards), but it’s been incredibly reliable for Sub 2 of Honor Among Thieves against the endless Mindless Ones.  Through four clears, not a single green countdown has resolved and I’ve used zero health packs.

    Apparently lvl 270 4/4/5 Ronin, lvl 275 5/3/5 MEH and 188 5/2/2 Juggernaut beat Gritty Bishop.. I'm going to try that next season.
    Apparently I'm missing something here.. I've been trying lvl 367 3/5/5 MEH, lvl 284 4/5/4 Juggernaut and lvl 287 3/5/5 Ronin against Gritty teams and other 5* teams that are usually beatable with 4*s and I haven't won any matches yet, even with AP boosts. I fail to see the synergy.

    Perhaps the levels make a difference there or the one who beat me repeatedly last season was using TUs or something weird was going on. Perhaps someone else would like to try this team against Gritty Bishop? (Warning: they might not work and you will waste health packs)

    My Gambit is only 5/2/5 right now, but man he and Storm (only level 450) may be my favorite tandem in a long time. I was taking some crazy long turns in Star-Lord PVP just smashing and charging up the board.  ALMOST winfinite at times.  Once it gets rolling, you get buckets of AP (Storm yellow, Gambit red) then destroy all the charged tiles (Storm black) so there’s none left for whatever enemies are standing. I’m seriously excited to finish Gambit now. Also wondering who to run as a third when given the chance. 

    Bishop- Stun lock the other team while you charge up the board and Gambit collects AP. Obviously a huge defensive deterrent. 

    Cable- Probably the best third. Awesome green to use instead of Storm’s. Blue outlet that adds charged tiles to the board. And fortification for all of Gambit’s tiles. 

    Iceman/Black Suit/Ock/Archangel- While not as good as Cable, all provide a Green/Blue outlet as well. You often get more black than you can spend with this Storm, so the latter two also provide additional black outlets. 

    Professor- On my team, Professor would tank three colors and shrug off tons of damage. His blue should proc a bunch with all the cascades.  However, not being able to use his purple is a giant letdown. 

    Thor- Basically an additional battery for three colors and a better green outlet. 

    Really hoping Remy gets a feeder! Something I never thought I’d care about!

    it's very situational, but it was hilarious running OBW/Gritty against mindless ones.  After a couple rounds of Kitty buffing the tiles, OBW was double-tapping black matches for 4000 points each.

    @Daredevil217:
    Bolt/Star Lord/Surfer are all the other charge tile producers in the tier I can think of. I guess Hawkeye does it on third fire of his blue also. Any of those usable as a third on your roster?

    Cable makes charged greens, kinda sorta.
