Re-present? Ready, Set Love? whatever title, you wish…VS project

May 6, 2008

So, while today is not the first of the month, it does mark the beginning of a new project I and Runaway from “TheBraveandtheBlog” will be collaborating in.

You see, in honor of the BYOS events being sanctioned by UDE, as well as the fact that when it comes to building on a budget, BYOS is one of the coolest options, we’ve decided to honor Sets. BYOS is awesome because it gives you a limited card pool, and allows you to make flavorful as well as competitive decks. It allows you to find focus, and also makes it cheaper to build decks, seeing as you only have to invest in a set that features heroes (and villains) you feel a connection with. With this is mind, Run and I came up with this little project.

We’ll take it all one week at a time, and we’ll learn different things about a given set each week. Hidden Gems, High Tier Decks, story lines that influenced the set, we plan to discuss all that and more. It should make for some very fun, and hopefully very informative, 22 weeks or so.

And which set are we gonna start this all off with? While it would make sense to go straight from the beginning, Run and I felt that maybe the least loved sets should get the love first, and after a coin flip, this guy came out a winner. For our first installment of Ready, Set Love, we present;

Released officially on September 20th, 2004, the Web of Spiderman expansion for the VS system marked the second Marvel expansion for VS, and would be one of 2 sets released that would only feature 2 teams as its focus. While many consider this among the weaker sets, and most notably, as the weakest Marvel set, it did end up having some impact on the game, most specifically with some of the legacy cards that it provided for teams from the previous set. It also had the honor of introducing the first of what would later become many different keywords. For this set, it would be one that I have greatly enjoyed; Evasion.

Well, thats all I have time for today. Stick around, as we plan to cover a lot more about the Web of Spiderman expansion, and the impact it had when it first came out.
