Hero Response: After a boost card is turned faceup, discard Target Acquired → cancel that card's boost ability.

Black Widow #24.
Target Acquired

With the release of Standard 2 and Expert 2, I feel that this is a card that most decks should be considering as a 1x or even a 2x. Many of the new boost abilities lead to additional boost cards being drawn and things can spiral out of control. This is capable of stopping the problems before they start.

A very scenario-dependent card, but agreed it is very powerful when needed. I recall some of the GMW mod sets having minions that come in to play off boost. This is a cheap way to beat a whole minion! — Stretch22 · 231
There are some scenarios where on Expert, I just pull all three out and say, "okay team, I don't care if it means running a 41 card deck, but everyone is going to do their part on the team and run a copy of this." — Death by Chocolate · 3
@death by chocolate Agreed! Even before Standard 2 / expert 2 some villains have nasty boosts... Klaw comes to mind with sometimes two nasty boost effects on a single attack! And not to mention GMW... — neothechosen · 6468
@neothechosen Yup! Sometimes you just can't afford to let Star Shark or Under Attack kill five allies! — Death by Chocolate · 3
