This deck has been updated on 5/3/22 here: https://marvelcdb.com/decklist/view/18958/captain-america-side-step-for-6-damage-2-0-1.0



Here's a scenario that happened while my son and I tested this build:

Possible Additions:

  • Jocasta is a great 41st card. She can hold Shield Block or whatever Defense event you want, and thwart decently. I'd just add her to this deck.

  • Coming out in Sinister Motives are two fantastic cards to add to this deck: Jump Flip is a Defense event that that prevents 2 damage, and thwarts for 2 on the main scheme if you use an energy resource. Perfect synergy with Flow Like Water and Nerves of Steel.

  • The second card is What Doesn't Kill Me. It's a Protection event that requires a physical resource (Perfect for Super-Soldier Serum) that heals for 2 and readies your Hero. That's fantastic for this deck and Cap.

This kind of deck makes Defense events a lot more fun. I hope you enjoy it, too!

I played a very similar deck in 3-player last night against Standard 2 expert Kang. This is the most fun I've had with Cap and Protection respectively... ever. A deck that I actually want to play again.

@aermet69 It is so much fun. Especially in multiplayer. Finding different ways to defend. It's a chess game on the villain turn. Cap was built for this.

This is awesome! I love Flow Like Water and Defiance... they're huge additions to the Protection aspect. I made a similar deck using Scarlett Witch that uses Defiance, Never Back Down, Side Step, Preemptive Strike, Desperate Defense and Shield Spell. (Plus she has Magic Shields too). The goal is to play 2 defense events per turn... ideally one to negate a boost card and one to negate villian base attack. It was pretty common to use Side Step and Premptive Strike on the same turn, sometimes hitting the villian vack for 8 after Electrostatic Armor, Dauntless and Flows Like Water all triggered. I agree its like a chess game on the villian turn!

@teamcanadahockey2002 I love what you did with that Scarlet Witch deck. Using her crest to increase Preemptive Strike is chef's kiss.

@teamcanadahockey2002 Thanks! Been working on that one for a while. Her ability to manipulate is awesome isnt it!

I love the addition of Defiance. Having two cards that completely negate boost card damage now is the game changer to me. And defiance is zero cost!!! Theres a bunch of good protection decks that can be made now with this concept on my mind. I've got a good one for Venom too that maybe I'll post later once all the new Vision decks have had a go. (Side note: I love how there are 4 on the main page right now, 1 in each aspect.)

@InigoMontoya Love it! I was thinking among the same lines, can't wait to include 'jump flip' from sinister motives (check it out if spoilers don't bother you!).

Good job dude!

Jan 24, 2022 InigoMontoya · 4322

@neothechosen Can't wait for Jump Flip! It'll be an auto-include in this deck. Along with What Doesn't Kill Me's interaction with Super Solider Serum.

Not that anyone else is doing this, but if you happen to make over 150 decks for other people, your account starts to have issues here. Haha.

Decks were really loading slowly, and I didn't get a like on any deck for 3 days. Once I purged around 60 decks, everything is working again. :)

Buildadeck is the account I created so I can build decks for people on reddit. I found out this account just couldn't handle the sheer amount of decks I had. Lol.
