  • Good day to all you UniVersus fans out there!

    My name is Tim Frie and I’m the lead game designer here at Jasco Games. The design team always has a lot of fun working on new cards, but this set in particular has been a blast. Focusing on the bad guys is not a thing we get to do often! We’re nearly ready to begin previewing the next expansion of the My Hero Academia CCG, but before we do, I wanted to give everyone some tidbits of what to expect over the coming weeks. 

    Things you can expect to see in League of Villains:

    • Villains, of course!
    • A cycle of powerful actions for blocking!
    • 2 throwback reprints.
    • 4 never-before-playable characters to build your deck around.
    • An attack that searches your deck.
    • Multiple Rare attacks with a Check of 1.
    • The return of the “3 damage matters” archetype.
    • The first 2-Difficulty attack printed for My Hero Academia.
    • Revisiting counters as part of a character card.
    • A brand new Keyword Ability!

    Some Game Text on cards in League of Villains:

    • Enhance Commit: If you have 5 or more different symbols in your card pool, this attack gets +2 damage or -2 speed.
    • Deadlock First Form Commit: Destroy 1 rival foundation.
    • Response Flip: After your rival adds a card to their momentum, they build it face down committed. Then they add 1 ready foundation to their hand, then add 1 card from their hand to their momentum.

    • CHARACTER Enhance Flip, remove 1 momentum: Add 1 card from your discard pile to your momentum.

    • If you have more health than your rival, this card gets -1 difficulty.
    • Second Enhance Remove: This attack gets +2 damage. If it has Taunt, draw 1 card and it gains Stun: 1.
    • Response Flip: After your attack deals more than its printed damage, gain 3 health.
    • Enhance: Build 1 card with a check value of 6 from your card pool.

    Hero League Championship & Set 4 World Premier Overview

  • Latest news
  • News
  • Months of fierce competition have been building to this point – the Hero League Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada is almost upon us!

    Thirty-two players from all across the world have earned the right to participate in the Hero League Championship’s Main Event on January 27-29 in Las Vegas, Nevada, a $250,000 prize pool tournament! However, that’s not all – there’s plenty more to be excited about for the HLC!

    The entire weekend is chock-full of amazing side-events you’ll have a blast participating in, such as an early sneak peek at Series 4, a once in a lifetime sealed event, and the last MHA-only constructed event in the “Set 3 Meta”. Plus, we’ll be introducing a new Prize Wall at the HLC, allowing attendees the opportunity to purchase exclusive swag you can’t get anywhere else and a second chance to snag rare Organized Play promos!

    Besides the Championship, here’s what this weekend will look like:


    On Friday, the Hero League Championship will showcase the Series 4 World Premier! This will be the first opportunity for players and collectors to snag Series 4 cards and merchandise before they’re available anywhere else in the world!

    Over the weekend, we’ll be hosting tournaments and events that anybody can partake in!

    On Saturday, we’ll be hosting two constructed tournaments – one will be a “MHA-Only” tournament, and the other a “Standard Format” tournament. Make sure to bring your Standard cards! 

    On Sunday, we’ll have two special events – a “Common Ground Constructed” event where you can only play with Commons and Uncommons, and a special Team Sealed event called the “Dragon’s Hoard!” – where teams of three players will build three decks out of 24 packs that span across the entire  history of UniVersus!


    At the HLC, we’ll be testing out a new method of prizing for our events – the Prize Wall. It’s pretty simple – for every event you enter, and for every win you get in that event, you’ll earn tickets you can spend on all kinds of sweet My Hero Academia Merch! 😲

    The HLC is special, so we’re bringing some pretty cool stuff out of the vaults – there will be limited quantities of previously retired Organized Play promos available on the Prize Wall up for grabs, as well as new, event-exclusive merch!


    We will also be live-streaming the event on our Twitch, so if you can’t make it you can still be a part of the action!

    December 2022 Ban & Errata List Update

  • Latest news
  • News
  • Greetings, Heroes!

    Following a rigorous Nationals season, we’ve analyzed gameplay data and have found certain decks to have outlier win percentages, whilst either having incredibly high power floors or ceilings. Given the tournament and locals data we’ve been collecting, we’ve decided to make these additions to the Banned & Errata list to balance out the format and open up more characters into the meta. These changes will be effective Monday, December 12th 2022.


    Crow & Frog Takedown – Banned

    This attack brings great stability to the decks it’s strong in, helping to end games much quicker and bring less stress on the attacker’s resources. The decks where this card is most problematic tend to be decks trying to end the game much earlier than we are comfortable with. Winning the game on early turns is a viable strategy, but this card increases the consistency to achieve that result by an unhealthy margin.


    Stronger In Darkness – Banned

    While this only works for a small portion of characters, it is simply too strong for its low risk of play. Compared to the similarly shaped Basic Training was the (#) most played card at the Pro Hero Nationals in Dallas, Stronger in Darkness is drastically stronger in characters who can take advantage of it. It is much more comparable to cards such as Bench Press or Making A Stand, cards that have a higher difficulty and impact on deck building.


    Kirishima 2 – Errata’d

    “Enhance [Twice Once per turn] Destroy 1 foundation: Build 1 card from your hand face down. Draw 1 card. Your attack gets +2 damage.”

    Kirishima’s consistency is higher than where we would like him to be, so we’re trimming his effectiveness a bit. His enhance being Once per turn will help ensure he sees less cards and has access to less ready cards over a turn cycle.


    We appreciate your ongoing support of the My Hero Academia CCG and will continue to work towards creating fun and engaging gameplay experiences across all player types.

    Thank you,
    Jasco Games™ Team

    1. Create an account on UniVersus Gaming Network.
    2. Navigate to the Organizations dropdown and click Create Organization.
    3. Follow the prompts to fill out your application.
    4. Once submitted, a Jasco Games team member will review your application. Once approved, you will be free to host events at your organization.

    How Do I Create an Event?

    1. In the center of the home page click “Create Event”.
    2. Follow the prompts to create your event.
    3. At the time of your event, follow all prompts to navigate through gameplay.
    4. At the end of your event, remember to formally “end” the event within the system so your players can earn loyalty points!

    How Can I Grant Another User Access to My Organization to Run or Host Events on my Behalf?

    1. Navigate to the Organizations dropdown and click on Managed Organizations.
    2. Click on the organization you wish to grant another user access to.
    3. Click on the Users tab, and click Add User.
    4. Add the email address of the user you want to add (note: this user must already have an account on UGN) and toggle the permissions you wish to grant that person.
    5. Once you hit save, the designated user will see your store by clicking on Managed Organizations when they’re logged in on their account. All events for your organization will automatically appear in their account under Managed Events as they are created.
    6. To remove a user from accessing your organization, toggle all settings off.

    Note: this is the best way to add a user to an event on a one-time basis. This user will not have access to your store’s bank information.

    HOW CAN I DISCOUNT TICKETS TO MY EVENT FOR A CERTAIN TIME PERIOD?

    Some organizations like to incentivize players to sign up for an event early by offering a discount on tickets. The best way to do this is editing the cost of the ticket within the event details on the day you want price changes to take effect.

    Example: the price of your event on February 1st is $30, but you offer a $10 discount to those who sign up by January 28th. If you create your event on January 20th, set your ticket price to $20. On January 28th, log back into the event and update the cost of the ticket to $30. Once you make this change, only new sign ups will have to pay $30 for registering; the existing players will not be prompted to pay a difference. Likewise, refunds to players will be granted based on the price paid to register.
