Response: After Beast enters play, search your deck and discard pile for a resource card and add it to your hand. (Shuffle.)

Cyclops #11.

Beast is a powerful ally with a unique effect that should make him a staple of any X-Men deck, and possibly of any leadership deck period. The default will be searching for Energy, Genius, or Strength, which 99% of decks already play. If you have a specific resource requirement for a villain attachment or something like Drop Kick, you can even grab the matching card. Assuming you have something else to use the resources on, Beast has a net cost of 2 for a 2/2 3-health ally...a great rate. But this is just the beginning. Beast can also grab your hero resource cards like Captain Marvel's Energy Absorption, Rocket's Salvage, or Ironheart's Stroke of Genius. Band Together is another great option that many leadership decks are built around. Now they can find it more consistently. The cherry on top is that Beast works with Rapid Response to double up his enters play ability. Beast is one of the most exciting cards in the X-men wave and should see lots of time on the table!

Apologies that Drop Kick is not a leadership card, so that was a bad example. Go All Out is more applicable — Stretch22 · 542
Aggression Cyclops can still use Beast to retrieve strength for the drop kick rider effect. — SouzaNZ · 2
