The ‘Thick’ Ally Leadership Deck

I’m not sure about you, but Marvel Champions has definitely been my game of choice during this pandemic. I love the difference in styles between each character and am always looking for new decks that change the way a hero plays or feels on the board.

I completely understand the business reasons for it and I am sure most people do and we all should have had the courtesy extended to us that our patronage has merited. The pandemic is not something anyone could, in all honestly, have predicted and especially not how paralyzing it has been, especially to things such as organized play.
