It's 10 black tiles at 3 covers, not 11. The description on page 1 is wrong.
Using the Boosted Cloak and Dagger in the Unstable ISO event now, just a few days after Champing her. I've been using her as a 5-3-5. Light Knives removing 5 special tiles is really nice, and against the nodes where there aren't any tile generators, the AoE is deadly. My only question about her Pocket of Darkness is why doesn't it affect goons? Couldn't it just lessen the damage/effect of their abilities?As an aside, combined with (an also boosted) She-Hulk, you get active abilities in all six colors, although not all at the same time. The two of them make a great meat shield for Hood/Strang3 to really punish your opponents.

I had them at 5-2-5 and used CP to buy the black cover because I had 3 covers on the vine. Very fun to use boosted!!
I just champed C&D (saving 3 covers on the vine ) and I'm wondering how y'all play them. Do you use them as a yellow battery? Black battery? Any good friends out there to team them up with? They seem a little tricky to play so any cool strategies you've come up with is appreciated.

Rarely is the black used for C&D themselves, it's better used for another teammate's power. However - and I think this prediction may actually be a thing sometime soon - as Rogue shows up on more and more teams, C&D black might be the key to dropping Rogue's defenses to level 1. Interested to look back at this over the next couple of months as SIM teams start to incorporate the newer characters.
Any other good characters to pair C&D with?
C&D work great as a battery, of course - so they can pair well with just about anyone that you want to fuel Yellow or Black AP. Pairing with Carol makes sense, since she can make use of both colours even though there's not too much further synergy between them.
Coulson is an interesting partner .They can help keep a steady flow of Countdown tiles on the board by providing fuel for his Yellow active and spam Purple when it's at 3 AP to trigger the passive on his Blue.
C&D also make a good team member alongside Luke Cage and Iron Fist. You can fuel Yellow for Cage's Hero for Hire or Black for Fist's Like Unto Iron. The team will work better in PvP against goons who will activate Cage's passive more frequently, but otherwise C&D help to fuel the best parts of the Cage/Fist pairing.
C&D also have some decent strength outside of being a battery. Yellow is a strong AoE (comparable to Rhulk) and still a decent way to remove enemy A/P/S tiles if you have no other way; in it's Passive form, it provides True Healing which is a huge benefit. Black gets ignored, but I've used it to save tonnes of damage; keep in mind that it's ability level reduction will also be applied to any enemy CD's (or other unique tiles like Black Holes, Motivation, etc.) that are already on the board.
