This deck is all about the interaction between Sneak Attack and Rapid Response, where, as it is currently understood, if an ally played via Sneak Attack dies and comes back via Rapid Response, that card is considered a new iteration of said ally and is no longer targeted by Sneak Attack's discard.
So how do we abuse that? With Goliath, of course! With this build you can consistently do 11 damage every turn with little to no upkeep. If you would rather thwart for 4 every turn, Maria Hill and Black Panther have you covered.
- SA Goliath in,
- use his action to swing for five, and then
- use either Get Ready or Command Team to make him swing again,
he'll die to damage, which is a perfect target for good ol' Rapid Response. This means he gets on the board for cheap, deals ten damage plus one for Black Widow's Widowmaker ability, and then RR cancels the discard trigger for both Sneak Attack and Goliath's action. Keep in mind that the only thing that doesn't reset is Goliath's one-per-phase action, so unfortunately we can't abuse it in the same way we can abuse SA.
To better utilize this feature, we're using Natasha Romanoff as our hero. Her Preparations are a great way to control the villain, while being able to recur Rapid Response every turn you don't draw one with Safe House #29 in Alter-Ego. You can also take advantage of Black Widow's Synth-Suit, so you can attack or thwart twice with her in addition to Goliath's big play.
Rapid Response is only usable in hero form, but Sneak Attack isn't. This means you can drop Nick Fury for one resource and a card in Alter-Ego, giving you a lot of options to manage the board or just draw even more cards.
Black Panther is another great Sneak Attack/Rapid Response target, which can pull a copy of Get Ready to remove four threat every turn and then Rapid Response or Make the Call to grab an ally you need from the discard.
Target Acquired is in there because in MP I like to play a more support or control role and TA is a great way of doing that. In solo it's a flex slot.
Want more BP/Mariah Hill recursion? Check out teamcanadahockey2002's first combo deck, where he discovered in July how crazy good everyone's favorite prince from Wakanda is. I haven't seen a updated list, but that was definitely a great resource for building this deck.
