Just from what you have seen, I would have actually put Silver Samurai in the Cap deck and Punisher in the Iron Man deck. After Iron Man won the first game, Cap came back and rallied (not as much as Caps' deck, but you know what I mean) and was able to triumph both of the rest of the games. Highlights include Red Skull, Moonstone and Bullseye as my only remaining characters and cards, as Hulkling tried to not become stunned from attacking Red Skull. It ended in failure, but then there were no cards left. I have to say that Bullseye is really cool. After IM missed 7 (got a 6 and something) and Cap got a Red Skull 7, IM had to team attack with 2 6-drops and a 5-drop in order to stun Red Skull as Bullseye would take out any individual. He is cool. Also, after a poor start, Iron Man's side steals Speed Demon away and he joins the Avengers (Switching Sides) and he had been around since turn 1 and had just gotten stunned to Speedball is Dead, so the next turn, Cap had to face down a 7/7 1-drop that is reinforced automatically. All in all, a lot of fun, and Cap was able to take down Iron Man. WOOT!
