Pintel & Ragetti Chamber #223
Strikes Fox & Sail.
Advantage - Body,
Ally - Dark-
1st Sig Move: Cunning Plan 1 Green, 6 Int, 5 Force - Your opponent's strikes cost an additional green energy to play.
2nd Move: 'Ello Poppet No Payment. 8 Int, 4 Force. Your opponent's strikes cost an additional red energy to play.

This is a tough card for a Rare. Cunning Plan could work out wonders if played at the right moment. But being able to "overpay" almost shuts it down right away. Decent force, but easily blockable. 'Ello Poppet works the same way. Although it's almost easier to pull off because Red Engery can be tougher to come by. Again, the force isn't that great. If you're playing a deck the eliminates engergy, then this would be the chamber to Play... unless you're wanting to use Davey Jones. Which would be a better choice.

When it goes off right. This card can be very desctructive, there's just too much out there can stop this card.

My Rating 2/5
 

WildWill
Name: Pintel & Ragetti
Type: Chamber
Card #223
Rarity: Rare
Strikes Allowed: Fox & Sail.
Advantage: Body
Ally: Dark
Signature Move #1: Cunning Plan – 6 Intercept, 5 Force. 1 Green Payment - Your opponent's strikes cost an additional green energy to play.
Signature Move #2: 'Ello Poppet – 8 Intercept, 4 Force. No Payment. Your opponent's strikes cost an additional red energy to play.

Pintel & Ragetti are cursed, or were cursed in the first movie, now, as one of them says “We’re not immortal no more.” Don’t ask me which one, I forget, though I can tell the two apart, Pintel is the short, stocky one (played by Lee Arenberg) and Ragetti is the tall lanky one sans an eye (played by MacKenzie Crook). The two of them are paired in the movie, and on the card, being the only chamber with two characters on it.

They’re allowed Fox strikes, which run the gamut from 3 to 8 on intercepts, and 1 to 7 on Force, with a majority of them costing two or more energy to play. Fox strikes are also all about deck manipulation, several of them either reveal cards in either players’ deck, or force cards already in play back into their owner’s deck. Four Fox strikes also manipulate energy, and could conceivably be used in an Energy based deck. They also can have Sail strikes, which are also mostly Energy manipulation cards.

Body Advantages are a mixed bag of intercept/force modifiers and ally nullifiers. Dark Allies are also about as varied, each deck theme having something in there as well. I’d think that Pintel & Ragetti can make decent Energy Manipulation decks, but would stink in a beatdown style deck.

As for their signature moves, they are not all that exciting, the second of which can possibly be a game winner, if you can manage to get it out, late game red energy is hard to come by, and if you can get that move out, while your opponent has no red energy, it’s an instant point.

To date this card has had no sales on Ebay. Being a rare chamber, and boy let me tell you, rare chambers ARE a rarity, it might have some value, but since these two boys aren’t that popular, I would wager this is the least expensive of the rare chambers.

My Ratings:
Playability 3 of 5
Collectabilty 3 of 5

Next Time – Did someone say something about drums?
