Ever since Vision came out, I've been wanting to build a deck that revolves around the new Meditation cards and this is the result of testing:

For the Lord Of The Rings Fans, this your Treebeard build.

The oldest Ent in Middle Earth who has survived due to his epic Mediation prowess and has now crossed over into the Marvel Universe.

Why does this build work?

Two weakness of Meditation:

  • Requires Alter-Ego to use
  • Requires you to Exhaust your Alter-Ego

In order to overcome those two weaknesses we need the following:

  • A hero who benefits significantly from being Alter-Ego.
  • A way to manage threat.
  • Powerful Hero Event based cards.

Justice Groot aka Treebeard is the answer and checks those boxes.

Because of Meditation, you can afford significantly more high cost cards that would otherwise be too expensive to include in a deck like this.

This means you can build an extremely powerful engine in which you sit in Alter-Ego collecting growth tokens while Beat Cops manage threat until you're ready to flip.

The allies also help compliment this strategy with added threat removal. I've included Wraith because his ability is amazing to manage "Boost" effects and you can keep him out all game by adding a Tough status card using We Are Groot.

That way when Groot flips - its MAJOR damage with IAM GROOT and Root Stomps.

Super fun to play in solo and multiplayer. Shouldn't have much trouble taking down most expert villains.

Enjoy!

Sorry for the quick repost: made some card swaps based on the amazing feedback on version 1. Treebeard runs SUPER smooth now.

I slept on the GMW expansion when it first came out. When I was finally ready to pick it up, it was non existent lol. My LGS finally has a copy of it on hold for me! I will be picking it up on Saturday! I think this will be the first deck I try once it's in my hands! Great build! Cheers!

@LordVader13 that's so exciting. I've been playing this deck a ton lately. Excited to hear what you think. It's one of the only Groot decks I've played that feels right for his kit.

@JRise33 I'll let you know how it goes!

Funny Name for a deck, I like it.

Does Wraith's Hero Interrupt ability trigger when you are in alter-ego mode? Great build cannot wait to try it out.

Feb 03, 2022 JRise33 · 4885

@midniter I think it's just Hero form unfortunately.

@JRise33 Will say this deck is super dope! My buddy and I started an Expert MTS Campaign and I decided to give this a shot with him playing Spider Woman Aggression / Protection deck. We had so much fun with the two decks together and cruised through Ebony Maw! I bumped it up to 41 cards and added Jessica Jones to just help with all the extra side schemes, and she worked wonders! Props my dude!

Amazing to hear @Jones! So happy you enjoyed it my friend. Feel free to check out some of the other decks I've created under my user name. If you're friend likes Spider Woman they may like the Healer class I made. Could come in handy against Thanos.

Congratulations! You just made me finally appreciate groot! Been struggling to figure out how to use him.

The card think fast can't be played when Groot has any growth counters on him because he wouldn't take any damage and thus the card text can't be fulfilled.

Jul 10, 2022 ProteinePlus · 1

@paradox22 thats not corrrect, you can play the card “think fast” removing a growth counter. Taking damage is not mandatory, since the sentence lacks the arrow.

Any chance you have a rocket deck that melds well with this one? I'd like to take them through a campaign together.
