MCP: Cabal Roster…in progress

It’s been 2 or so weeks since my last Cabal roster but I’ve decided I want a single affiliation roster, so no Dormammu. The previous 10 was this:

  • Dormammu
  • Red Skull
  • Zemo
  • Mordo
  • Modok
  • Enchantress
  • Omega Red
  • Crossbones
  • Mysterio
  • Okoye

Dormammu is out, and I’d quite like to ditch Okoye (just for a change). Who else can I bring in? These are the models I was considering last time plus a few more

  • Gwen
  • Black Cat
  • Lizard
  • Cassandra Nova
  • Mr Sinister
  • Viper
  • Sin
  • Venom
  • Sabretooth

I’m not convinced by Mysterio in the list. He is better with MODOK, Enchantress or Sinister, but he doesn’t really add to the affiliation. In a Dormammu or Foes list yes, but here I think he will struggle. Although he does combo well with some others I suspect he will lack the power he needs.

I really want to try Cassandra Nova, she just seems hard fit in. And MODOK is still better.

I enjoyed Sinister and would take him again, but I really want his cards and 2 out of 8 seems like a big chunk. Out of 10 is better. Feeling like I should wait until after the updates!

Venom and Sabretooth would be fun, taking hits from Red Skull and then getting their attacks and generating more power. 

Wow, it’s really hard coming up with a list! 

So to test stuff out I played a game on Monday with Brian.

Dormammu, zemo, Gwen, Agent Widow, Okoye V Skull, Mordo, Venom, Sabretooth, Omega Red.

It was super low scoring. 5-5 after 3 rounds. But in the end Cabal tabled Dark Dimension. Range 3 attacks work great. 2 models with pulls. Mordo combos with Red for poison. 3 models could heal. And Skull with Mordo and Dark Reign hit really hard – throwing Dormammu does a lot of damage!

So i think I’m looking at a more tanky, hitty list.

  • Red Skull
  • Crossbones
  • Omega Red
  • Sabretooth
  • Venom
  • Mordo

So I need 4 more models.

I want some of Enchantress, Modok, Cassandra and Sinister but there is overlap there. I’ll try Nova and Sinister and maybe take them.

I need a 2 threat. Toad would be best here, but I like the idea of Bob as he’s affiliated.

If i don’t take Enchantress I might take Black Cat. Else I might take Lizard or Zemo. and that would be 10. I guess I’ll try out some of the untested models (Nova, Sinister) next week and see how they go. And then I’ll probably take Asgard anyway.
