    Professor X (5*) and Karnak, mostly paired with Half-Thor. Use Karnak red to manipulate the board and create massive match-4 and -5s.

    Whilst playing Punisher's PvP I realised how good Ant-man and Valkyrie work as a team with Mr. Castle himself. All of them have cheap or free powers that give special tiles and with it going off all over the place it can be chaotic. They also have rainbow coverage, Valk generates free AP, have aoe and multi-attack powers, board destruction and nukes. They aren't going to change the world or anything but I was surprised at how fast they could steamroll over opponents and it gave me a new found liking for 3Pun I never had before.

    Ever since the reworking (aka DEATH) of Mr.Fantastic, I’ve been lamenting the loss of one of my favorite teams, DD/Mr.F/Shuri team that just MELTED life from the opponent. Well, I may have found one similar.

    4*Black Panther 

    theres only one way to stun and that’s with DD’s purple. But once you get it and match a shield, someone is gonna lose half their life points.

    Looking for team ideas. Is there a better team for 4* Eddie Venom than putting him with 4* Carnage and Medusa? I can't come up with a better team. I usually use Mr. Fantastic as the third in Carnage and Medusa but Venom is a character I enjoy in the comics so...
  • AXP_ismeAXP_isme Posts: 725 Critical Contributor
    Eddie Venom plays quite well with Kraven. You can use carnage as well to pump out enemy specials that trigger Kraven’s passive and power up venom’s green. Plus, with Kraven reducing the specials you can have Venom’s black set to 3 so you get the most value out of yellow and green offensively. 

    It doesn’t have much staying power but it’s quite good fun for a match or two. Won’t win any prizes on defence but that’s not what this thread is about.

    Venom is also one of my favourite character in the comics. He works well with same type of characters that 4*Carnage work well with as together with 4*/5*Carnage, the only characters have passive that give enemy special tiles.
    I love to mix and match those characters (beside those that you mentioned) that have abilities that give enemies special tile and those that benefits from them like: Kraven, 3*Hawkeye, Elektra, Sabertooth,3*Wolverine,3* Dr Ock, 5*Carnage.

    Some teams that I have tried before work well with Venom:
    • with 5*Carnage and America- Venom help speed up Carnage auto-match passive and both Carnage and America high match damage help activate Venom passive.
    • with Cloak &Dagger (3/5/5) - Cloak &Dagger create yellow tiles on the board which help Venom match his yellow, mix with 5*Carnage and America to trigger Venom's yellow passive or 3*Hawkeye/Mr. Fantastic/Medusa for respective effect.
    During the Dr Ock PVP, I found the following team very fun to play:
    3*Dr Ock, Venom, 5*Carnage/Sabertooth.

    Most of the time, when I see enemies with protect tiles, I will use Venom as the base of the team and try different characters with him.

    Venom, Kraven and Carnage sounds like a fun team. Plus it also works for the comic nerd in me to have three of Spidey's biggest foes on a team.

    GE Doom is boosted in this event. His black is formidable. I thought, why not pair him with Domino, who likewise is boosted. And a third heavy hitter like eg. JJ. Yup, Domino provides Doom with lots of black, while her green does boardshake and increases JJ:s chance of hitting Damning Evidence.

    I think you meant 4* Wolverine?
    Also, the last bullet point is kind of confusing since it sounds like you're talking about 4 characters on a team.
    Otherwise, thanks for the insight.  I too am interested in using Venom one day (far off into the future)

    I’ve tried a bunch of new combos in pick-2. The following are my faves. 

    Shoutouts to @Glockoma, for the Kingpin/Carnage pairing. My “list of partners” for both characters is pretty low, so it’s cool that they play well together. Carnage makes sure you never run out of specials to feed the enemy to force their hand, which fuels green. Use Kingpin’s green over Carnage. Carnage of course brings the spammy red and extra damage. All and all a good team. 

    I finally tried @Road_Warrior’s Hawkeye/Iceman team. It both didn’t work as well as I would have liked and worked better than I thought in pick 2 (Wolverine PVP). It was rough sitting on 30 Red/Blue AP with no tiles to put arrows on because Iceman used them all up. However, Iceman stayed with the stuns thanks to tile fortifying, so that was cool and often resulted in stunlocking the opposition and winning. I think it’ll be deadly in pick 3 where you can bring another outlet (Patch’s red sucks when he barely tanks anything). But in pick 2, I like Goblin better. 

    Hawkeye/Loki however was a great great pairing. Those black countdowns either fuel purple damage or expire
    and fuel Hawkeye. Surprisingly great synergy there. Again this was pick 2, but I think Doom (or Storm) as a third in pick-3 would be the perfect compliment, giving a black outlet
    for all that AP you get chasing countdowns, plus full rainbow with the Yellow as well!

    It’s getting rarer to find Bishop out without BRB in pick 2. When I do he’s usually with Jessica or Xavier. Against those teams I’ve really liked Silver Surfer/ Daredevil. They tank opposite colors making it easier to keep Surfer up front when Bish tries to stun. Once you kill Bishop. Both 5s can true heal from Overclocked damage and work a 2 on 1 handicap match (or I guess 3 on 2). Matt’s stun can really hinder Professor’s tanking. This paring is great and further makes me happy I champed Surfer. I wouldn’t take this team to a Beta/Kitty or Thor/Professor fight, but imagine they could take down a Thorkoye. Overall I am liking Surfer.

    Some new teams I liked in Maria’s PVP. 

    Maria Hill has the “Team Iron Man” tag so I busted Stark out with Black Suit (despite blue overlap) against Gritty teams and it worked well. 

    Ghost Rider/Professor is a super fun team with Robbie shaking up the board and soaking up three colors for potential match 4s (a bootleg Thor essentially).  Then when the board is dry of red/green for his repeaters to soak up, Professor can can put some back on the board with his purple. Pretty fun (albeit slow). 

    Beta Ray/Logan are a great combo because Bill is so spammy that you get lots of passive strikes. Logan gets to tank two colors so he can heal from any nukes that get past the protects. And he gives three additional AP outlets if you can transform him. Obviously would be killer with Kitty. But was great even without. 

    I liked Phoenix and Storm together. I used Storm’s yellow and Phoenix’s purple to make the board as red as possible for fun. Too bad the team only had Phoenix herself as a red outlet. Havok would be a much better third than Maria Hill. Still, they’re a fun duo.

    Finally, I don’t know how, but two pairs of characters that I rank lower actually paired decently together. Carol/Angel and Ock/Gambit.  No real synergy. Just little active overlap. But somehow it worked. Carol/Archangel shocked me especially with how they played.  Gambit I’d still rather play with the charged tile folks as I find that synergy more fun, but nice to know Ock has another person he can run with if I’m feeling like playing him.

    It's easy to forget Hell Ride gathers red/green/black AP. Whenever we finally get that character that advances repeaters we may see a Robby-aissance. I haven't tried running him with Carbage or BRB yet, i feel like BRB's green-earning ways could help him out, as could Carbage's second turn.

    Looking for any great counters to BRB teams. I struggle against usually.

    What levels are those BRB teams and are you in 4* or 5* land?

  • GlockomaGlockoma Posts: 195 Tile Toppler

    Firmly in 5*, though I only have 12-13 usable champed 5*’s. BRB’s are mostly <470. I have been going to a JJ and Venom combo in pick 2, but didn’t know if anyone has found any decent viable hard counters.
  • AXP_ismeAXP_isme Posts: 725 Critical Contributor
    BRB can be stun-locked. Hawkeye / hammer cap or strange / bishop let you get control of the situation but are health pack intensive.

    @Glockoma not sure if you have both 5*Iceman and Carbage champed. If you do, use the following:

    Iceman 3/5/5 (put him in the centre, so he creates his Blue countdowns first at the start of your turn)
    Carbage 3/5/5
    Medusa 5/4/4 (Purple at 4 to steal enemy Attacks, Yellow at 5 because that extra 1AP gain can make all the difference)

    Carbage and Medusa's positions are not so crucial. You'll always want Carbage moving after Iceman, especially if his Black matchmaking procs, so that he has a chance of matching Iceman's tiles.

    I tried that trio against BillyKitty and Gritty. Worked like a charm. I even saw off KittyBillyCarbage without too much fuss. Didn't attempt Bishop/Billy though; that duo might be a step too far.

    it's not 100% reliable for me, but i like Rescue/BRB vs pick 2 brb teams. Wen the board gets too flooded with enemy specials, you can use Rescue's blue to steal a pair and turn the rest red, which can be pretty spectacular at times.

    against BRBishop, okoye/X is still my best bet with +2 team up.

    I was able to take down a Kitty/BRB team in Hollowpoint Kiss with Iceman/Chavez, but my Chavez is 354. As with all Chavez matches, that is going to be wildly board dependent for you, but if you can stun BRB and Kitty, it gives you time to clear out the protects.
  • GlockomaGlockoma Posts: 195 Tile Toppler
    Thanks for the insight folks; I do fortunately have Strange and Bishop. That was much easier.

    I’m still grateful it isn’t the Gambit meta we all once experienced.

    Do you have 5 star Daredevil?  You can use his purple to simultaneously steal a bunch of special tiles,  turn them into strike tiles,  and stun your target.
