Marvel Super Hero Squad TCG: Intangible

1LR continues to highlight the best all-new cards from Hero's Destiny, the new expansion set for the Marvel Super Hero Squad TCG!
Marvel Super Hero Squad TCG
Hero's Destiny:

Intangible is a power level six blue card featuring Kitty Pryde that can do up to four damage. This X-Men card has a red block and after two damage it becomes a keeper with the ability to reduce the damage your opponent's keepers do by one.

This is one of those cards that has a really powerful ability... sometimes. If your opponent doesn't have any keepers that do damage, this card is reduced to being either an expensive four points of blue damage or a red block in your hand.

But if  your opponent does have keepers that do damage, Intangible severely restricts them. Some, like Storm's "Electrical Storm" and Iron Man's "Repulsor Rays" would be reduced to useless lumps - keepers that don't do anything at all. Other keepers that do more than one damage would be shrunk down to the point where they're not so worrisome. If you had multiple copies of this in play then almost any keeper (except perhaps Asgard's Thunder) could be completely nullified.

While I can't see putting this card in many decks, a damage reduction deck could be a distinct possibility. Combine this with Adamantium Bones (which reduces all damage from attacks to four or less) and Body of Steel (which causes all of your opponent's attacks to be -1) and you might have the beginnings of something.
