Hello everyone and welcome back to the Blues Effect. Now tier lists are the most subjective lists of all time. Every placing within any list can be argued and changed as metagames continue to develop over the life of a game. I am personally a strong believer in tier lists when it comes to testing for any competitive event. Tier list helped me narrow down the stronger decks to either play or test against in hopes of winning big. I will share with you all today my current personal Tier list of  vs2pcg main characters  along with a brief description of placement meanings. Below is  the list with mc’s in no particular order within tiers:

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Blues Effect. Ever since the release of jessica jones and Thor in the marvel legacy expansion the Dark Phoenix main character has been considered to many pretty much dead competitively.

Today I will share with you all a variant  of dark phoenix I believe can make some noise in the tournament scene.  Here is the list and card breakdowns:

Hey everyone Blues686 is here and welcome back to the Blues Effect. I know it has been some time since I’ve written in this blog (8 years to be exact) but I am happily to announce I’m back in the driver seat. The excitement of the relaunch of vs system 2 years ago  along with the recent spoilers of the upcoming expansion “MONSTERS UNLEASHED!” has given  me the desire to share content geared towards competitive play  like I once did. Now with the re-introductions out of the way lets get to what you all are here for, vs system. Of all the previews cards so far I am most excited for the main character card Elsa Bloodstone. At first glance her main character (MC) card appears to be the strongest of the previewed MC’s so far for the monsters team.  With that in mind I tinkered around with a few deck lists which I will share one with you all today along with a deck break down. First here is the list:
