Wakanda Forever

Overview

Draw all the cards, build up an impressive board state, play Wakanda Forever! And Ever, and Ever, and Ever...

The basic strategy is dig through deck to get as many allies out as possible and play Strength In Numbers for really satisfying turns, specifically playing the above-mentioned card(s).

Turn-by-turn priority:

  • Play Strength In Numbers if you have a decent number of allies
  • Play any panther upgrades
  • Play Wakanda Forever!(s) (even at 1, it's still good value; play them if you have them)
  • Play any allies (using Make the Call if you don't have any in hand)
  • Play any other permanents to help thin your deck and/or Ancestral Knowledge to get back any Strength In Numbers, Wakanda Forever!, plus whatever

General Strategy Tips and Deckbuilding Decisions

Late game, you'll easily be drawing several Wakanda Forever! for some really huge turns. Be prepared to draw a lot of encounter cards and laugh at the villain deck while you're doing it. Early game, you'll be pitching SIN for resources a lot. You'll want to get The Triskelion and Avengers Tower down to upgrade your ally limit. There are a couple of allies who don't have the Avengers trait, and there's no Honorary Avenger, but that's ok:

Non-Avengers Allies:

  • Shuri is still good because she can help you dig for your upgrades
  • Nick Fury should almost always be used for more card draw and goes away at the end of the round
  • Maria Hill draws a card for everyone, thwarts for 2, and is ready to block an attack and also isn't going to stick around for very long

So Shuri is the only non-Avengers ally who doesn't go away easily, but Honorary Avenger just gives you 1 Attack or Thwart, and you need both of them and Avengers Tower all out at the same time for it to matter anyway.

The Avengers allies are pretty self-explanatory:

  • Falcon is great for dealing with threat
  • Hawkeye kills trash minions easily
  • Squirrel Girl blows up on everything and is immediately ready to chump block
  • Vision can thwart or attack like a freight train with enough
  • Wonder Man is a cheap ally that you sometimes attack with when you have nothing better to do with your hand

Basically, these are the best options because they are literally the only options at the moment, but they all have their perks for the most part. The best part about them is that they just work even if you don't use them to attack or thwart every turn. Falcon, Hawkeye, and Squirrel Girl all have a decent enters play... ability (and Hawkeye's can be triggered whether he's exhausted or ready), Vision wants to be saved for turns where you can throw a lot of to get the most out of his attacks, and Wonder Man only attacks if you can pitch a card for him.

The Rest

Enhanced Reflexes is there to help pump Vision and also thin your deck by putting resources out on the board (it also can help you pay for those big turns). 2 copies of Avengers Mansion to help dig through your deck faster; Helicarrier is better than a third copy since it can be played and help thin your deck. The Golden City is the best card draw in the game, but only if you're in alter-ego, so you'll be swapping a lot unlike most other BP builds.

Customisation and Future Plans

Future plans will probably have Rapid Response replace Quinjet. In the current build, they could easily be The Power of Leadership if you prefer, but I like that they get out on the board, and they're both just as useful at buffing Vision.

Great Deck! Only gripe is two Avengers Mansion (I think any card you can build to thin your deck is great, and Black Panther already has the Golden City, so between Mansion, Enhanced Reflexes, Quinjet, Hellicarrier and the Golden City (not to mention Black Panthers own Vibranium) I feel there are already plenty of options to get a good first turn.

I also feel that if your goal is to have a lot of Avengers in the game, you probably don't want them to die, so even though Make the Call is one of the best cards in Leadership, I feel the Designers really tried to make it and the other "best card" Maria Hill less attractive by giving it anti-synergy with an Avengers Build. So I'd consider swapping at least 1 copy for Avengers Assemble!, which works fantastic with Black Panthers Ressource Package and Strength in Numbers.

@Incredibulhey, thanks for the comments. i'm currently testing -1 Avengers Mansion, -1 Make the Call, +1 Enhanced Reflexes, +1 Lockjaw

Avengers Assemble is a good one. Maybe just 1 though in place of one of the above cards. Late game, he ends up with a lot of resource cards and nothing to spend on them except WFs, which seems like a waste sometimes. It'd definitely be useful on those turns (but let's be honest, i'm just using it to play SIN again)

I tried a variant of this deck in BP but I found it a bit too clunky. It always seemed I was playing suboptimally to cycle the deck to find Wakanda forever rather than just making good plays with the allies. I’m glad it works for you though so maybe That style didn’t work for me. I moved the shell over to Spider-Man and it seemed to work better.

@Whipporwillthis deck definitely has to be played a certain way i think, and it doesn't seem to vibe with everyone, but that's totally ok. i tried a variant in Spider-man and Captain America before landing on this version with BP.

with Cap, i was leaning more heavily on Avengers Assemble, so much that i eventually stopped using SIN. the draws weren't that helpful. sure, they might help you have one really great turn with Shield Toss, but only if there's that many enemies (which wasn't often). Assemble was just really strong on its own. i'd often rather attack with everyone, play it, then attack again (or thwart, etc.), especially with someone like Vision getting a lot of thrown at him

my thoughts on Spider-man is he needed Honorary Avenger for Black Cat, and it caused some issues drawing things in the right order. i also ended up wanting to just keep Avengers Assemble instead of Strength In Numbers, but again, the same issue, so i ended up leaning more on Lead From the Front so i didn't have to worry about the Avengers trait. i do want to try that deck though, Honorary Avenger on Black Cat with all the buffs and readies to get that achievement (deal 16 damage in one turn with Black Cat)

anyway, with BP, there's a lot of Wakanda Forever!s in the deck, and you can play multiples in a turn very easily (due to the low cost). that's why the combo just kinda 'works' in BP imo compare to: SM's and CA's signature hitters cost 3 each (or lots of cards like Shield Toss, but i mentioned the limitation with that)

So I figured the deck I've been trying to make just might work with this deck as a shell. I cut the non-avengers, except Shuri obviously, and made other changes to get 3 Avengers Assemble and 3 Lead from the Front in there. That way you can Strength in Numbers to Wakanda Forever OR to the ally cards. Last night Ultron was at 35 and the BP player just took care of it himself with SIN into 2x Lead from the Front, into attacking, into Avengers Assemble, into attacking with everyone, into Wakanda Forever. He had a similar, though slightly less good, turn two rounds prior, without a Wakanda Forever. It's legit.

I'm not sure what to cut for Teamwork when it comes out, if anything. But yeah. It's an idea I had been trying out and not working, until I combined it with your idea. I figured I owed it to you to share.

@TheoGrizzthat's so great! thanks for sharing. i've been tinkering with a lot of different variants based on all of the comments

i think this deck really shines in multiplayer when you can Make the Call to get Hulk, Spider-woman, etc. to help pad out the Avengers on the team. i've also been trying with 1-2 copies of Avengers Assemble and really liking it, even if i feel compelled to draw more with SIN lol

I just tried a deviation on this deck, using Honorary Avenger to maximize Strength In Numbers. It helps thin your deck and lets you get to 5 allies. I can usually set up drawing 11-13 extra cards per turn (just using allies as resource banks). It was super fun. Thanks for the list :)

Jan 30, 2020 dr00 · 1580

@KennedyHawkyeah, i saw your video! good stuff. shame you ran out of villain health haha, but that was satisfying to see you get all 5 out in one turn

so happy this deck seems to be taking on a life of its own. i love seeing everyone's different takes on it. i've definitely been trying many different variants over the past week or so :D

This was the inspiration for my She-Hulk deck, which basically gets even more card draw from Split Personality. I don't really even worry about blocking or attacking with allies, just want card draw because 1) She-Hulk can usually just tank anything herself and 2) she does enough damage on her own when I'm just drawing/diving for Gamma Slam and One-Two Punch x3 in a turn. Thanks for the initial Leadership/Draw idea :)

@Brian-V hey thanks for the comment. i've actually been thinking about trying to make it work in She-hulk but haven't had the time. i'll definitely be giving your deck a look :D

Quick question the rules state thate "No more than three copies (by title) of each nonunique card may be included in the deck. " how does this work with 5 times Wakanda Forever! in my point of view, this is not possible.

Feb 21, 2020 dr00 · 1580

@Oldwreck it's a part of black panther's set of 15 cards which is fixed and must be used as is with any black panther deck. consequently, every black panther deck must have 5 wakanda forevers because that's what his set has

Thanks for the clarification @dr00

Feb 21, 2020 dr00 · 1580
