Universus My Hero Academia Product Overview

  • Latest news
  • News

  • Over the course of 2022, UniVersus has grown from a niche cult-classic card game to an international “smash” hit! Our community has grown immensely over the past few months, so with the release of League of Villains we’ve built a guide for new players to know which products are right for them.

    My Hero Academia Base Set

    The set that started it all! In “My Hero Academia Base Set”, we introduced many of the classic fan favorites from Class 1-A, including the teachers “All Might” and “Eraser Head”, as well as the students “Izuku Midoriya”, “Katsuki Bakugo”, “Shoto Todoroki”, “Tenya Iida”, “Ochaco Uraraka” and more, as well as the nefarious villains “Tomura Shigaraki” and his loyal “Nomu”!

    Many of the characters and cards from this set have gone on to see significant competitive play, including “Specialized Sound Waves”, “Staff Strike”, “Meteor Shower”, “Frigid Heatwave”, “Hardened Jab” and more!

    My Hero Academia Crimson Rampage

    In “My Hero Academia Crimson Rampage”, the set is mainly defined by the first appearance of multiple fan favorite villains such as “Stain”, “Dabi” and “Himiko Toga”, as well as first appearances from fellow Heroes such as “Mei Hatsume” and “Gran Torino”.

    “Excited for Blood”, “Back-Alley Haymaker”, “Howitzer Impact Cyclone” and “Faith’s Shield” are amongst the variety of powerful tools introduced in Crimson Rampage. Many of the powerful cards in Crimson Rampage are very strong for defensively minded decks that want to “take games long”, such as “Faith’s Shield” and “Cheerful Uppercut”.

    My Hero Academia Heroes Clash

    “My Hero Academia Heroes Clash” is a set defined by the support that it gives to existing strategies, as well as a new Rarity — the “Chrome Rare!” Chrome Rares have their own special foiling process, and are each numbered out of 100.

    Heroes Clash introduces the Class 1-A student “Koji Koda” as well as the Pro Hero “Thirteen”, as well as new versions of many fan-favorite characters such as Toru Hagakure, Tomura Shigaraki and Stain!

    “Stun Grenade”, “Twisting Azure Inferno”, “Somnambulism”, “Focused Attack”, “Blood Moon Rending”, and “One With Nature” round out some of the many cards from this set that see regular competitive play.

    My Hero Academia League of Villains

    “My Hero Academia League of Villains” releases very soon, on March 3, 2023! League of Villains puts the villains center stage, featuring first appearances from “One For All”, “Twice”, “Spinner”, “Muscular”, and “Moonfish”, as well as return appearances from other fan-favorite villains like “Tomura Shigaraki”, “Dabi” and “Himiko Toga”.

    League of Villains features the new attack keyword, “Echo”! Attacks with Echo can pay one momentum to “Echo” the attack, playing it twice! This mechanic on cards like “Resolute Rushdown” and “Dignified Display” pressure your opponent by forcing them to dedicate multiple blocks to a single attack.

    “Hold Hostage” and “United States of Smash” are early contenders for hype, as well as “Vile Seizing” and “Dual Needle Lunge”.

    We are very excited to see what decks the community tries out with the addition of the League of Villains card pool to Universus. Show off your League of Villains decks on social media with the hashtag #myvillaindeck!

    Plus Ultra Series 4 Spotlight

  • Latest news
  • News
  • Greetings, Villains! In this article we will be discussing each of the new Plus Ultra Promo cards, only obtainable at your Local Game Store with the release of League of Villains!

    Magne is an interesting character — having two different Enhance effects which both modify attack stats lets Magne make profitable trades, but only if you’re able to reliably trigger both effects! Cards like Basic Training let you nudge attacks in the right direction to be able to make your attacks stronger or your Rival’s attacks weaker!

    Lastly, Magne’s response follows up on wanting to slug it out blow for blow — every time you block an attack, you can commit a foundation to keep your opponent’s cards in their card pool moving into your turn. By forcing your opponent to start your turn with cards in their card pool, you can drown your Rival in progressive difficulty and take them down!

    I AM HERE! is an incredible addition to any deck trying to swing for the fences! The First Form lets you look at the top 3 cards of your deck to find an attack and send it with +3 Speed. If you miss on finding an attack, I AM HERE! will build a card for free — face-up or face-down!

    Lastly, the Enhance lets you commit a foundation to give a huge damage pump to your attack! The damage pump is at its best on characters who have a low hand size, such as All Might (I)!

    Teamwork is a fantastic option on offense and defense for pushing over to the finish line! Teamwork’s Response is great for hanging on when all else seems lost — ignoring your progressive difficulty while blocking can let you handle lethal attack strings with ease!

    Teamwork’s Enhance requires a little bit of finesse in your deckbuilding, but it’s worth the effort. By playing a wide diversity of symbols on your attacks you can use two-card attack strings like Prominence Burn -> Stun Grenade to enable a huge damage boost!

    Suited Up is a high value Asset which rewards careful sequencing to get maximum value! Suited Up wants to be ready to change an Attack’s damage, but it needs to be committed to change the Speed. Since you can commit Suited Up to cards like Rescue Completed, you want a careful cadence of using the attack modifier Response, committing Suited Up and using the other Response to change speed.

    Suited Up rewards very tight play — competitive players, take note!

    Ally strategies, rejoice! Dark Shadow Behemoth is a 6-difficulty threat that requires a very high density of “Ally” cards in your deck, but can win games on the spot if left unchecked!

    Dark Shadow Behemoth requires removing Ally cards from your discard to activate each of its three effects and considering using all three would require 16 Ally cards in your discard, each activation has a real cost associated with it.

    Removing 3 Ally cards lets you ready an Ally in your stage, extending your resources on your turn. Removing 5 Ally cards lets you burn your opponent for 2 damage if they interact with you – and this damage can take your rival to 0 health! Lastly, 8 Allies lets you commit their entire board if they can’t fully block the attack. Just make sure they can’t, because you’re only going to have one shot!

    Full Cowling Impact is a fantastic card for taxing blocks and forcing chip damage through to your Rival. The extremely low 2 speed makes this card tempting to block, but the first Response complicates things – when Full Cowling Impact is fully blocked, your Rival has to destroy a foundation they control!

    Lastly, Full Cowling Impact’s Enhance gives you extra value when played against defensive decks that keep a full hand during your turn. If they don’t want to full-block, you’re going to get them for a ton of chip damage and consistently gain Momentum.

    Insidious Advance is complementary to many of Shigaraki’s new cards in League of Villains! Shigaraki revolves around forcing your opponent into lose-lose decisions, and Insidious Advance leans further into that. The first Enhance lets you chip your opponent for free damage if they have failed a check this turn. Partnered with Shigaraki’s abilities that flood your opponent with checks, they will either commit themselves out and end up getting hit, or they’ll take the burn damage. Win-Win!

    Lastly, Insidious Advance also is a game-ending threat if you have one momentum. Just by paying one momentum Insidious Advance can threaten 11 damage and if they’re committed out, the -2 to their next block check will bury them!

    Red Guard is fantastic for decks that want to be very defensively minded, as being able to completely block problematic attacks with Throw or Enhance-based chip damage from cards like Static Jolt is awesome, and Breaker: 1 can save your skin when it matters most.

    It’s also important to note — Red Guard has 3 difficulty! You can comfortably throw Red Guard in at the end of a long attack string, and so the card has practical value on attack and defense — the perfect tool for a character like Kirishima!

    Rising Engine Kick is great for dedicated “Kick” strategies from characters like Iida and Eraserhead. Low attacks with relevant text are always great to have, and Rising Engine Kick steps up with two powerful Enhances to cause a ton of trouble for your Rival. The first Enhance lets you extend your attacking turns by giving your next kick -2 difficulty. Sending a long string of Kick attacks to your opponent ending with Rising Engine Kick into a Recipro Acceleration Kick will get the job done!

    The other Enhance is no slouch, either. Being able to reliably discard your Rival’s Momentum is a big deal by itself — alongside a significant string of Kicks, your Rival’s in real trouble!

    All Smiles is a powerful foundation for Control decks trying to restrict their Rival’s resources. The first Response is narrow but if your opponent is using a foundation multiple times a turn, it’s likely a good thing to destroy it! Being able to get rid of problematic foundations like Rescue Completed is great by itself, but there’s more than that!

    The second Response is simple, but scary — if they gain health with a non-character ability, they lose 2 health. With multiple copies in play the effect becomes truly smothering, as they can each respond to a single instance of life gain. Nice “Recovery Girl’s Kiss”, Hero — now lose 8 health!

    City-Wide Crisis is a powerful Foundation for punishing decks that draw cards while blocking. Cards like Passing the Torch are foiled by City-Wide Crisis’s Response, as when they add a card to their hand you force them to put a card from their hand into their card pool face-down!

    Lastly, the Enhance can bail you out of trouble by returning an attack to printed speed, letting you maneuver around high-speed threats with ease!

    Desperate Struggle provides access two generic but powerful, one-time use defensive Responses on the same card. This card is outstanding against decks that want to use one giant, fast attack to win such as “Determined Victory Smash” or characters such as Muscular or Nomu who provide huge stat bonuses to their attacks in single chunks.

    Moonfish Character Spotlight

  • Latest news
  • News
  • Villains
  • Welcome to the fifth article highlighting the various characters in Set 4 of the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game: League of Villains!

    This week, we’re covering the blade-toothed villain from the League’s Vanguard Action Squad, Moonfish (I)

    Moonfish focuses on going wide, using a large number of cards to defeat opponents with a flurry of small increments of damage. While “go wide” can often find themselves out of gas and petering out in the late game, Moonfish has surprising scaling and can snowball out of control at any point in the game. 

    As a 7 hand character with a frail 18 health, Moonfish trades survivability for the hand size to flood with Foundations. With Air, Earth, and Void cards to choose from, Moonfish has some killer options in his villainous arsenal! 

    His first Enhance is simple, giving his weaker attacks speed to make them trickier to block! They get even faster if your rival is high on cards in hand. Combined with his rapid chip damage playstyle, this Enhance can really punish characters similar to Moonfish who operate with low health and high hand size!

    Moonfish’s second Enhance allows him to discard an attack that dealt 3 or less damage from your card pool to make your rival discard 1 card. It’s an ability that feels counterintuitive to Moonfish’s first Enhance. After all, discarding opposing cards gets your rival further from the “3 or more cards in hand” threshold needed to trigger the +1 speed boost from his first Enhance

    However, this means that any Moonfish rivals will either be punished for having too many cards or will have so few that they can’t both block everything and keep their hand safe. This villainous strategy puts rivals in a “doomed if you do, doomed if you don’t” situation with their dwindling hand. 

    Of course, with a character that focuses on the printed damage of Attacks, Moonfish has some pretty powerful low-damage attacks of his own! Shrapnel Tooth and Glacier Breaker are both useful in their own right, but it’s Razor Deluge that strikes fear into Moonfish’s rivals! 

    Razor Deluge is one of the big standouts for Moonfish. It’s just low enough in printed damage to benefit from Moonfish’s speed boost, but the real benefit is its two Enhances. Like most of the Moonfish arsenal, Razor Deluge is a Weapon, allowing players to combo it with a perfect 3 damage Void attack for any Moonfish deck: Binding Cloth Precision

    The first Enhance can force out a card from your rival’s hand, potentially forcing out important blockers and increasing their progressive difficulty in the process.

    Razor Deluge can be a must-block in many situations despite its low damage and difficulty, thanks to its second Enhance with the ability to make your rival lose 1 health for each attack in both card pools!

    The bread and butter of any Moonfish deck is the killer Blade-Tooth! For a 1 difficulty Foundation, Blade-Tooth’s Response can completely take over the game with its rapid chip damage. 

    Blade-Tooth makes your rival lose 1 health every time a non-Throw attack deals 3 or less damage. With multiple copies Blade-Tooth in play, Moonfish can scale out of control and ping opponents for huge chunks of damage at a time! 

    Featuring all of your favorite Villains for the first time – My Hero Academia: League of Villains lets players join the League of Villains and show those Heroes what they are capable of!

    Air Symbol Primer

  • Cards
  • Latest news
  • News
  • Welcome to the Jasco Games’ Design Team Symbol Primer! Today we are going to help you understand the Air symbol and the ways in which it can play the game. If you are looking for a deck that can move its cards around your board, then Air may be the symbol for you!

    Card Movement is the primary theme of the Air symbol. This is commonly expressed in manners such as

    • Clearing cards from your card pool
    • Readying foundations.
    • Moving cards to other piles, such as to the momentum or the removed from game pile.

    Card Pool Clearing

    Air’s core concept is keeping its card pool clean. This can be achieved by discarding your attacks, adding them to your momentum, or even the bottom of your deck. An Air player is happy when they aren’t getting much progressive difficulty tying down their attack turn.

    Let’s look at a few cards that give examples of this theme:

    Uses the theme

    It’s not just enough that a symbol is able to perform the theme, though! You should have cards that utilize cards leaving your card pool in interesting ways. This can be through a reward if you have already cleared your pool, such as Tongue Smack giving you access to its draw ability, or you could find the reward directly on the card you clear from your card pool, like how Jet Kickback and Frog Kick both give you a stat bonus for clearing them.

    Triggers off of the theme

    Not everyone is an Air player, though. If you’re sitting across the table from someone who keeps clearing their card pool, you should look into some ways to force them to slow down a bit, or at least punish them.

    Interacts with, or restricts rivals playing the theme

    Readying Foundations

    Readying foundations is a core ability for both Air and Water, seen through multiple cards that happen to share both symbols. This can allow you to extend your attack strings further, or to defend yourself when it looks like you were pushed to your limits.

    Uses the theme

    Triggers off of the theme

    Readying cards for re-use is generally powerful enough unto itself, but there are some cards that activate when things are readied. Check out the Water symbol for more synergies with foundations re-readying as well, cards such as Enamored and Blood Evaluation will serve you well.

    Interacts with, or restricts rivals playing the theme

    Minor Theme: Momentum Generation

    In keeping with Air’s theme of card movement, cards can sometimes be flowing through your momentum. While Air may not be as adept as Chaos at generating momentum, Air certainly has its own ways to get ahead in the momentum department. 

    Uses the theme

    Minor Theme: Speed Pump

    The second most efficient way to get momentum is to just make sure your attacks hit, and Air can help you get there with its plentiful speed pump abilities!

    Uses the theme

    Triggers off of the theme

    Interacts with, or restricts rivals playing the theme

    Lastly, I’d like to highlight some characters who I believe represent the symbol’s core values the best through their gameplay. You don’t even need to play these characters on Air to feel like you’re playing an Air deck!

    As we have highlighted today, the Air symbol is largely about mitigating risks and being able to stay vigilant. If the cards in this article caught your eye, maybe you’d like to explore the Air symbol a bit further in the future! Stay tuned for next time when we go over the deck manipulation that is the All symbol.

    Organized Play Update #2

  • News
  • Overview

    We’ve made an abundance of changes to the Organized Play structure for 2023. We wish to provide extra details and some of the intentions behind the changes that were based on community feedback.

    Redemption Changes

    We recently announced that both Plus Ultra Promos and Provisional Store Championship Promos would have a 60 day delay for being put onto the Loyalty Shop. The primary driver behind this decision is to encourage local play. There are countless retailers and players worldwide who are going above and beyond to build, manage and grow their own communities. These communities are the lifeblood of our game and we wish to award the retailers and players efforts by prioritizing in-store play. For the first two months of the Organized Play season, players will earn Loyalty Points from playing at their locals. Players can then pick up additional missing cards on May 1st, 2023 when the Plus Ultra and Provisional Store Championship Promos make their way to the Loyalty Shop or players can redeem their points at an in-person Regional License Exam event.

    Promo Legality

    The Plus Ultra Promos will be legal for play the moment players acquire them, the Provisional Store Championship Promos will not become legal until May 1st, 2023. 

    Provisional Store Championships

    As discussed, our biggest focus for 2023 is growing local play for players worldwide. Following the success of the Provisional Store Championships from last year, we decided to double down on this tier of event as the first step towards Premier Organized Play. The Provisional Store Championships (Or PSC) will be purely dedicated to local play. Each PSC will award victors the required qualification to compete at any National Championship event. This method of earning a qualification will be the majority of qualifications awarded throughout the year. Each approved Local Game Store will be eligible for up to three PSCs a season. Events with more than 16 players will have a second invite up for grabs and events with more than 32 players will have 4 invites awarded at that event. With up to 200 PSCs in North America, 100 PSCs in Europe/United Kingdom and 100 in Oceania per season, we are looking at 800 total qualified players. While there are a few other methods to earn your qualification into any National Championship, 800 slots are dedicated to players’ at local stores. We are excited to see teams of players travel to compete at multiple PSCs and create some friendly rivalries. Qualifications are not the only prize available at PSCs, the PSC exclusive Promos will be revealed at a later date as well!

    Qualifications for National Championships

    This year, we are requiring players to earn their qualification to compete at the National Championships. As stated above, the bulk of these qualifications will come from competing in PSCs at the local level. However, this is not the only way to earn your qualification. Any player who makes Top Cut at a Regional event will also earn their qualification into all National Championship tiered events. Players will be able to compete in Last Chance Qualifiers just before the National Championship events to earn their qualification. Having an exact number of qualifications possible ensures we can plan ahead and in turn, provide you with event information sooner so you may make travel arrangements well in advance.

    The Player Journey

    We want our players to get on a competitive adventure every set. Here is how the adventure will go:

    1. New set, means new cards! Gear up on these new cards and build new decks!

    • With the launch of a new set there are so many great opportunities for new deck building options!
    • Play in pre-release and sealed events to collect cards and build your new decks! Earn exclusive Pre-Release and Extra Credit promos for playing in these sealed events! More info
    • Bring those decks to your local Plus Ultra events and win even more cards to strengthen your decks! More info

    2. Compete to be the best in your area!

    • Provisional Store Championship events at LGS’ in your area will be an exciting battleground to test out your mettle PSC Retailer FAQ
    • Earn exclusive cards by participating in PSC events to continue to refine your decks in preparation for even bigger events!
    • Winners of PSC events have proven themselves worthy to receive invites to the National events at the end of the year!

    3. Get serious with Regional and Nationals

    • Time to refine your strategies, use in-person redemption at Regional events and the online redemption store (opening May 1st for Set 4 Plus Ultra and PSC cards) in order to pick up the missing pieces in your arsenal
    • Bring those decks to a Regional event near you – with 6 Regionals this season spread out globally and online, we hope there are one or more events you can compete at to really test out your skill. There are exclusive promo cards only available at Regional events that are up for grabs! More info
    • Once you’ve proven yourself at a Regional or a Provisional Store Championship, make sure to prepare yourself to face the best of the best at the Pro Hero National during the Championship Season at the end of the year!

    Additional Notes

    In case you missed it, we recently announced the prizing structure for all Regional Championship tier events during Season 1. The prizing structure can be found by clicking HERE

    The Season 1 OCE Regional License Exam has moved from in-person to online. While the event will be open to anyone, we will only offer National qualifications to the Top 16 (Potentially Top 32, depending on attendance) OCE players following day 1 of the event. Top Cut prizing will be handed out regardless of player home of record. Information about the Season 1 OCE RLE can be found HERE.

    Send an email to LGS@UniversusGames.com with your store’s information and we will reach out to them!

    Provisional Store Championship Retailer FAQ

  • News
  • What is a Provisional Store Championship?

    The Provisional Store Championship allows Universus Gaming Network (UGN) organizations everywhere to host store-level championships. Participating players will be able to earn exclusive Foil Promo cards and the winner of the event will receive their qualification to all National tier events! Each PSC kit is designed around a 16 player cap. If your local scene is larger than this, you are welcome to combine your kits into a single event to increase the max player cap of 48.

    (Note: If your turn-out requires you to combine kits, please provide proof via pictures / UGN event details so we can send you more kits for your other PSC events!)

    When are the Provisional Store Championships?

    Provisional Store Championships can be held at any time during Season 1 2023 (24MAR23 – 30JUN23). Stores can apply for up to 3 Provisional Store Championship events during the 3 month long season. We advise organizations to work with their player groups to find the best date(s) that work for everyone. 

    How do I apply or qualify to run a Provisional Store Championship event?

    You can apply today to run a PSC event at this link.

    We determine store eligibility based on the size of the store’s player group as measured by the UGN platform. Newer stores interested in growing their communities are also eligible, and should contact our team at lgs@universusgames.com and show their commitment to growing their communities in time for the Provisional Store Championship event.

    How much is it to play in a Provisional Store Championships?

    The suggested entry price is $15, however an organization may charge more or less. The organization is also authorized to add additional prizing. Should a store charge more than $15, it should be reflected in additional prizing. Our Provisional Store Championship kits include sufficient promo card prizing for a 16 player event. Specific prizing details to be announced at a later date.

    National Invites: The Provisional Store Championship will award invites to the Pro Hero Nationals for winners. If two or more kits are required for a turnout higher than 16 players, the 2nd place player will be awarded a Qualification for National Events. Additional prizing to be distributed evenly.

    Are you a player interested in a PSC event near you? Ask your local game store to apply! They can get started by creating an account and organization profile at: play.mhacardgame.com or by sending an email to LGS@UniversusGames.com

    Love in Universus? 😍

  • Ashley Fullerton and Keenan Meadows are UniVersus’s new power couple! After Keenan’s killer Top 8 run in the 2022 HLC (and successful on-camera proposal!), we reached out for an interview.

    Ashley and Keenan are both former UniVersus World Champions (2019 and 2011 respectively), and they have both been cornerstones to the community for years.

    1. How did you two first meet?

    Keenan: We met through a mutual friend who invited us out to boardgame night at a local gaming restaurant/bar called Battle and Brew. We were having way too much fun playing a board game, and we met up later for a date!

    2. What was the first tournament you traveled together to?

    Keenan: We traveled to Las Vegas for Ashley’s first Worlds in 2018 hosted at Level Up Expo. I think that was Ashley’s first trip to Las Vegas, and we had a blast!

    3. You’ve both played Universus for a pretty long time – what are your favorite decks in the history of the game?

    Keenan: Mine was Mad Pierrot with Coffee Samba. I’ve never liked 1 checks until Coffee Samba came along. The insane swings that card can give both positive and negative, make for really exciting games!

    Ashley: Mine was Lord Raptor; apart from the fact that I did well with the deck, all of the components worked together ridiculously synergistically so I always felt like I could think myself out of any situation.

    4. What is your favorite part about traveling to events together?

    Keenan: I love having someone to explore new places with. Traveling for tournaments is like a mini-vacation, and we always try to go out of our way to see something cool while we’re there. 

    Ashley: I really love that I get to travel with someone who is so down to go explore new things but also so social, so every event we travel to is like one half couples vacation and one half meet up with friends and play games.

    5. Have you ever had to play against each other in a tournament

    Keenan: We play during locals a lot, but I can’t remember a time we played at a major.

    Ashley: You’re absolutely right, we get paired literally every locals and most regionals but never at a major!

    6. When you two play, who wins more often? 👀👀

    Keenan: Lately I’ve been winning but if you asked me that question when Ashley was playing her 2019 worlds deck, it would be the exact opposite.

    Ashley: Absolutely agree with Keenan, the fact that I stopped playing during COVID means I got nice and rusty, and he can read me like a dang book when we’re playing so I have to win honestly – mind games will not work!

    We would like to thank Keenan and Ashley for their time on this interview, as well as their support of UniVersus over the years. We wish them the best, and a happy life together! 🥳

    Inspired by their tender moment on stream

    And remember, Ashley is the 2019 Universus World Champion — what a power couple!

    HLC Main Event

    The Hero League Championship’s main event was incredible to watch. As the day progressed we saw an incredible diversity of strategy, ending in a top 8 with five different characters in it!

    From merciless, all-in aggro decks like Tokoyami to defensive, late-game strategies like Recovery Girl, there were a lot of favorites to root for.

    Kevin Broberg’s run with Midnight was incredible, ending in a to-the-wire match against Philip Chybiorz’s Jiro, leaving Broberg on top! (And $125,000 richer 😲)

    Congratulations Kevin Broberg for becoming the 2022 Hero League Champion!

    Pre-Release Dates: February 24 – March 3, 2023

    My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game: League of Villains launches on March 3rd, 2023.

    The Pre-Release event allows you early access!

    This Set introduces a slew of dastardly evildoers from the anime, with 8 new playable character cards including fan-favorites like Shigaraki and Toga.

    Why join a Pre-Release event?

    Pre-release events are fun and great for new players, so bring a friend.

    You will get a special Pre-Release paper playmat to take home. It has zones to help you assist your play.

    These events are super casual since the focus is not the competition but a way to check out the new cards. Of course, some of the competitive players will be there, but they are also there for the fun to check out the latest cards.

    And everyone gets a promo card.

    This time it’s Mr. Compress! So make sure to join the event!

    Organized Play in 2023

  • Latest news
  • News
  • Organized Play
  • Dear UniVersus Community,

    This past year has been absolutely incredible, but this is just the beginning. We are more excited than ever for what’s to come. Today, we are excited to announce the details surrounding the 2023 Organized Play season. This includes a revamped Organized Play announcements and news structure that will make it easier for everyone to stay up to date with UniVersus. The latest announcements and news can always be found at our new Organized Play homepage.

    Transparency with our community is important to us, so a goal of ours is to check in regularly with the community to discuss the happenings, challenges, and exciting things to come for our game. For this reason, we’ve also included an in-depth summary on our view of the state of UniVersus (past, present, and future).

    To Our Players

    Your overwhelming support for the launch of the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game has helped us onboard droves of new players to the game that we all love. It’s been heartwarming to witness the growth of local playgroups, where veteran UniVersus players taught this new wave of players our beloved game. 

    To these veterans, thank you for being the foundation that has allowed this community to blossom. We hear it all the time: We have the friendliest community in all of card games. This is all thanks to our kind-hearted “old heads” who have been so accepting and friendly in welcoming all of our new players. We hear your desire to play with all of the cool cards from older sets and we want you to know that we will continue to support your ability to play those cards. 

    To the new players who have joined the game in the past year, congratulations – you’re well on your way to being UniVersus veterans yourselves! Now that you have learned the game and started competing, we are counting on you to usher in the next wave of players who will be joining our community over the course of this year.

    My Hero Academia is just the first of many chapters we have in store for this new era of UniVersus gaming. Get excited, together we’ll be shaping and exploring new ways to experience “UniVersus” in the months, years, and decades to come!

    To Our Retailers

    Thank you for being the backbone that makes this all possible. Whether you are a retailer that has been carrying our game since it was known as UFS, or you are just getting started with UniVersus and My Hero Academia – thank you. We want you to know that we are grateful for your dedication and efforts in supporting our game. You have a busy schedule and a business to run, and we want to make sure that we are providing you with all of the tools and resources you need to build a successful UniVersus community at your store.

    As you look at our Organized Play programs for 2023, we hope that you take note of the extensive support we have for Local Play and the opportunity for stores to be directly tied into Premier Play as well. We are only getting started on this front. Alongside Organized Play, we are also committed to rolling out a best-in-class demo program to help onboard new players and help grow local play groups. More to come on this program separately.

    If you want to contact us, you can reach out to us at LGS@universusgames.com OR if you are attending GAMA this year, please stop by our booth, we would love to meet you in-person too!

    A Look Back on 2022 Organized Play

    It was such a pleasure to see our veterans and new players competing side-by-side at local game stores everywhere. Seeing pictures from Provisional Store Championship events hosting thousands of players from around the world was truly gratifying — keep sending them our way! 

    We started 2022 still wrestling with COVID-19 which caused a lot of in-person play to be restricted to webcam play. Undeterred, hundreds of dedicated players showed up week after week to play in Provisional Showdown and Wednesday Webcam Weekly events!

    With the return of in-person events, things started to get heated with Regional License Exams kicking off. Players competed to earn points towards a qualification to the Hero League Championship event. With just 32 available spots, the race was on to compete for the cash prize of $250,000! 

    The Regional License Exams led into the Pro Hero Nationals where the largest event in UniVersus history was hosted in Dallas with over 300 players in attendance! 

    This all culminated in the Hero League Championship that just drew to a close this past weekend. Thousands of unique viewers tuned in to watch our Twitch stream, making it the most viewed UniVersus event of all time! Congrats to our HLC Champion Kevin Broberg who took it all down – well deserved!

    2023 Organized Play

    In 2023, UniVersus is set to be bigger and better than ever before. We are kicking off the year with the highly anticipated League of Villains set which launches on March 3rd, 2023, kicking off Season One of our Local and Premier Play events. The structure of our events will follow a similar pattern as 2022, which includes familiar events such as Provisional Store Championships, Regional License Exams, Pro Hero Nationals and Hero League Championship. 

    One of the major changes we are implementing for 2023 is regarding how qualifications will work. Looking back on 2022, we felt like we could have improved a few things in order to make Provisional and Regional events more meaningful. Only Regionals had a direct qualification into the HLC, but given it was a point system based across the whole of the Regional system, this system favored players who were able to play in many events over those of equal skill level that  might not have been able to attend as many events due to budgeting or scheduling constraints. For 2023, the Pro Hero National will be invite-only. To qualify, players will either have to earn a 1st place position at a Provisional Store Championship event OR place in the Top Cut at a Regional event. A Last Chance Qualifier right before the PHN will also grant players entry, but they will also have to Top Cut those events to make it into the main event! We believe that these changes will make the Provisional Store Championship and Regional License Exams much more competitive events and drive players to really compete for those coveted Pro Hero Nationals spots. 

    Players may only earn one Nationals invite, and if they would earn a second Invite that invite is “passed down” to next eligible player in the standings.

    Local Play

    Our LGS retailers are incredibly important to us. A vibrant local scene is critical to community growth and quality player experience. In 2022, we supported local events via Plus Ultra Kits, Pre-Release events, and Provisional Store Championships. In 2023, we are tripling down on Local Play support.

    A couple of weeks ago, we announced a new “Sealed Play” event that will be supported by the “Extra Credit” promos. Starting with League of Villains, our newly released “Extra Credit” promos will be available exclusively via “Sealed Play” events at local game stores. Contact our LGS outreach team to learn more!

    As previously mentioned, we are making our Provisional Store Championship events more exciting by providing Pro Hero Nationals invites to the winners of our PSC events. This should make these events much more competitive and provide players with a real reason to compete! Players looking to get their Nationals invite will want to try their shot at multiple events, and to help them reach their goals, we are going to be increasing the number of PSC events we are running during each of our OP seasons.

    Plus Ultra and Provisional Store Championships will continue to offer mechanically unique promos To ensure strong participation, we want to make sure that the primary way to earn these promos will be through participating in events at Local Game Stores. In 2022, we observed a lot of players redeeming them on our online redemption store instead of participating in events. For this reason, we are doubling down on our efforts to prevent unauthorized sales of Plus Ultra Kits and we are adding a 60-day delay between the release of these promos and their availability on the online redemption store to encourage in-store play.

    In-Person Redemption at Premier Events will be unaffected by this change to ensure players have access to mechanically unique promo cards for play.

    We are always looking for more ways to support our Local Play experience. We have more plans for in-store events this year that we are not yet ready to announce, so stay tuned! 

    Premier Play

    This year, we are focused on listening to the feedback we have received from 2022, and implementing improvements to address your concerns.

    What we heard from you:

    • You would like more advanced notice in order to plan your trips to big events.
    • You would prefer in-person play to webcam play, especially for big events
    • If you are in Oceania and Europe, you would like more OP support and events in your region.
    • You would like more side events and prize support outside of the main event after you drop on day 1 or for day 2 (top cuts).

    What we are preparing for this year:

    • As of today, we have confirmed TOs, dates, locations for ALL Season 1 events through June 30. These events have all been announced on our website, and registration links are going to open in the coming weeks. We are currently confirming Season 2 events and will be announcing those TOs, dates, locations once they are ready.
    • We are moving away from webcam Provisionals. All Provisionals will be ran by Local Game Stores starting this year Local Game Stores can choose to run their events in-person or via webcam play. We are also moving all national events to be in-person. We will be keeping two webcam regionals to allow those that prefer webcam play or are unable to make an in-person regional to participate in events.
    • We are working with European and Oceanic TOs in order to have regional and nationals events announced well ahead of schedule. As previously mentioned, these will be in-person events.
    • We know that our OP promos are in high demand, so we are rebalancing our prizing distribution. Our goal is to make these promos more readily available via “side events” rather than solely through the main event itself. We will also have a variety of side event formats, on-demand pods, and more. The popularity of our first Prize Wall at the HLC has prompted us to bring the Prize Wall back for all future in-person Premier events. These Prize Walls will offer an even larger selection of prizes as well as more opportunities to earn and spend Prize Wall tickets.

    We’re excited to move forward with these improvements to our Premier Events and look forward to seeing you at one of our Premier Events this year!


    Going into 2023, we wanted to share our current thoughts on UniVersus formats and touch on some of our future plans for them as well — we will not be announcing everything we have planned for the years to come, but want to provide some transparency around how we are thinking about formats going forward.

    We will be supporting 4 formats for OP play in 2023 at various levels:

    1. My Hero Academia Block Constructed
    2. Standard Constructed
    3. Sealed Play (Draft and Limited)
    4. Retro

    Our main format for the competitive year is the MHA Block Constructed format. This format consists of all cards released as part of the MHA IP and any alt-art cards that share the exact mechanics and name as cards within MHA. Yes, this means that starting today, Merciless Rush (Crit, the Origins Promo Card), One With Nature (Capcom Platinum Series) and Sense of Justice (Capcom Platinum Series / Mega Man; Rise of the Masters) are legal for play at all OP events.

    Our second format is Standard Constructed, which consists of the last 10 sets released from UniVersus. Standard will feature primarily at side events at Premier level events, and will be able to be played with Plus Ultra kit support at Local Retailers who want to run Standard local events. We are also working with our TOs this year to plan a Premier Standard Tournament towards the end of the year. 

    Sealed Play is a format supported at Local Game Stores via Extra Credit promos and Pre-Release events. We will also support Sealed Play at Side Events at our Premier Events.

    Retro is a format that includes every single set released in the Jasco Games Era of UniVersus. Retro events can be hosted at local events and will be featured at Side Events at select Premier Events. Dedicated Retro Tournaments may be held by select TOs during the year in combination with dedicated Standard Premier Tournaments.

    We believe that having a multi-format OP system can keep the player experience fresh and interesting by allowing players to experience the game in different ways. Going into 2024 and beyond, we will keep refining and evolving these formats based on player feedback and the newest set releases. 

    Any future changes to formats will follow certain principles that we want to make clear:

    1. We want to support an onboarding experience for new players that is not overwhelming.
    2. We want to support the ability for all printed cards to see play in one or more formats.

    A  dynamic formatting structure should help with player engagement, and allow us to proactively create fresh experiences for both new and veteran players alike. Our team is already hard at work charting out the future of UniVersus over the coming years, and we can’t wait to share with you what that future looks like. 

    You can find more details about our new formats (including a new ban list for Retro) here:

    Organized Play Home Page


    There is a lot that goes into the planning and execution of a successful OP program, but we are fully  committed to creating the best OP program you can find across any card game. We still have a lot of work ahead of us to get there, but you can rest assured that the UniVersus game is in good hands. We have an awesome community and an awesome team that is working tirelessly to bring you the best card game on Earth.

    See you all at an event in 2023!

    League of Villains Kurogiri Character Spotlight

  • Cards
  • News
  • Welcome to the third article highlighting the various Characters within Set 4 of the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game: League of Villains!

    This week, we’re covering the enigmatic Kurogiri (II)!

    Kurogiri (II) is an odd character at first glance – his Form lets you remove the top of your discard pile until you remove an attack, and then play it with 3 bonus speed. This Form lets you re-use devastating attacks like Warp Gate Portal multiple times in a game without having to play a ton of copies of them in your deck. This makes Kurogiri (II)’s turns very consistent — with a tidy discard pile, he’ll always have the ability to play his most powerful attacks.

    As a 5 hander with only 28 Starting Health, Kurogiri (II) looks relatively fragile, but don’t be fooled! Kurugiri (II)’s Response lets him block with cards from your discard pile! Being able to get a second use out of defensive abilities with Breaker: 2 is huge, and blocking with attacks you want to remove lets you re-organize your discard pile to make sure the card you want to play with your Form is always on top!

    Kurogiri (II) loves blocking with his Response using cards like Compression Sphere and Fierce Whirlwind that interact with your opponent while in your card pool. If you keep track of what your Rival is up to, you can use his Response to always make sure you have the right block to interfere with their plans.

    Warp Gate Portal asks a lot of your deck due to its 1 Check, but the power that you get is undeniable. With an entirely reasonable 5 Mid 5 Damage stat line and a block modifier of +0 Mid, Warp Gate Portal is an outstanding card to have in your hand at all times.

    On top of that, the Enhance guarantees you’ll always have the attack you need! This can lead to some devastating attacking turns via searching for cards like Dropkick Slicer, Villainous Waylay, or Gale Force Punch. Leveraging Kurogiri (II)’s new attacks like Dark Interruption (featured below) lets you play a spread of powerful 1 and 2 Check attacks without sacrificing his consistency. 

    Dark Interruption provides a lot of structural stability to the deck through its two Enhances and Breaker: 2. Being able to always draw a card is great, and the second Enhance lets you guarantee your next attack will work by discarding a high check value the next time you play a card!

    Dark Interruption has great synergy with Kurogiri (II)’s abilities as well. The ability to block from your hand and trigger Breaker: 2 and then attack them with the same copy of the card from your discard pile on your next turn provides consistent pressure on both player’s turns, making it difficult for your rival to always have strong defensive answers.


    Featuring all of your favorite Villains for the first time – My Hero Academia: League of Villains lets players join the League of Villains and show those Heroes what they are capable of!

    My Hero Academia: League of Villains can be seen for the first time at the Hero League Championship this month, but if you can’t make it make sure to attend a Pre-Release (starting February 24th) at a Local Game Store near you! https://play.mhacardgame.com/events
