This is my second Mutant Genesis hero deck using only X-Men and Core Set cards, geared towards new players. Next up we have Shadowcat. Her main gimmick is that, naturally, she's untouchable. If she's phased out and defending from an attack, she can't take any damage at all. So of course her preconstructed deck synergizes with this, right?
Well, no. First off, it shares a similar problem to Colossus's; four allies and you can only play three if you're teamed up with the hero Colossus. It's hard to find a use for your Training cards, and it's especially difficult to use Team Strike, which is a problem when it's one of the only attacks in your deck. And the other one is Toe to Toe, a card that outright interferes with your gameplan of not getting hit.
So, while we could switch out our attacks for more versatile ones, we can also change gears entirely. If Colossus doesn't want those Protection cards of his, let's borrow them. Now we have plenty of ways to attack via Counter-Punch and Powerful Punch. Play a Counter-Punch after defending, and then use Indomitable or Ready to Rumble to ready up and defend again. All the ready effects are very helpful too; if you need to get into Phased form you can use your basic attack, otherwise you can use your basic thwart. But sometimes you're exhausted for other reasons and don't have an easy way to get back to Phased. For a time like that, there's always good old Haymaker.
And Powerful Punch, as per my understanding of the rules, is an all-star; you can play it in Solid Form (using your Solid resource to help pay for it) and attack the villain for 4, then, since you attacked, you flip to Phased. Now, since it's also a Defense card, the villain is attacking you, and since you're defending the attack, you'll take no damage and flip back down to Solid. Solid all around. And if all that's still not enough you can play Perseverance any time you change through your Solid/Phased forms. If you like being invincible you'll probably love this deck.
Big thanks to royal7 from Discord for coming up with the concept for these decks.
