New and Improved

Before I post the idea, I just had to get this out of the way. HOLY CRAP! And with Galactus, against 3 people, he can get this bad boy out on turn 8 at the latest, as long as there is nothing else that allows Galactus to gain resource points (which there very well may be). Galactus is starting to look more amazing than I originally had thought (and I love me my cosmic Marvel characters).

Ahem, and anyway, I thought I would try and let you all in on the combo I am trying to harness, and unfortunately, failing. New and Improved reads: "Ongoing: KO a non-Army character you control -> Characters you recruit this turn with the same name as that character enter play with two +1/+1 counters." The first part of "non-Army" makes sense, as you wouldn't want to have a deck with a character you could recruit multiples of to get lots o' counters. However, Aspiring Pawn reads: "Whenever Aspiring Pawn causes breakthrough while attacking a player directly, put a +1/+1 counter on Aspiring Pawn, and it loses the version Army and gains the version Knight." Now, if you cause direct breakthrough with the Pawn, he becomes a Knight and is no longer an Army character. In case you haven't found where I am going with this, KO multiple Aspiring Pawns with the version Knight and you can have lots o' swarming, humongous Pawns. Now, I can't quite get enough Pawns in my hand for this to work, and I can't seem to deal direct breakthrough to get Knights easily enough. If you have ideas, please post comments.

sounds like you need some out of combat stuns and some card first thoughts on card drawing are Barbara Gordon<>Oracle, Hacker Elite; Birthing Chamber; Ego Gem+New Baxter Building+Black Cat+ESU or something along those lines.

Well, Birthing Chamber is a good idea, but I'm not sure about a lot of the others, because while they may work, I can't have too many other characters. Barbara Gordon is good, and I think I'll include her. Um, Ego Gem is something I don't know I can fit, because it will best work with visible characters (only work), and I don't really have many. The Black Cat/ESU combo is good, but I don't really have much room for the 2-drop. Well, I'll see if I can make those work, but I'm not sure about some. Thanks for the help!
