Re: TTO For a new guy

Questions: 1. What effect is supposed to come out with OAP? My guess is Arrest Order Correct. IAO gets you the DBs for activation and a place to put Jerjerrod/Piett/Merrejk while they do their part for your setup. 2. Where does the Moff go? I've been putting him in the Docking Bay or on a Star Destr...

Re: What would your solution be to balance TRM?

I liked the approach Decipher took in later sets - high deploy, with a -2 modifier for going to their thematic locations. The virtual sets have mostly done away with this, causing a lot of virtual mains to turn up in TRM. I’d like to have seen Rey as deploy 6, -2 to Jakku, for example - which would...

Re: Random obscure text on cards.....

A lot of this stuff was also (sort of) relevant back in the day, even if you'd have to be out of your mind to play something like it now. I remember shortly after Profit was released (it was JPSD, right? So post-DSII and 3rd Anthology?) Pat Ziagos won Coruscant Regionals playing a Profit deck that I...

Re: Desert Landing Site SSA(v) - How many Mauls can one man play?

I think it's a reasonable instinct, but all the issues you raise - LS Farm, Menace Fades, activation - all nix it IMO. Activation in particular - you're going to have to pay to drain, and the deck is a little light on activation anyway. Blizzard 4 is in a rough spot here also since Perimeter Scan is...

Re: Desert Landing Site SSA(v) - How many Mauls can one man play?

If you have that many masterfuls, all but 2 should be noncombo. And image v isn't a bad call at that point. It should definitely be a split, though I'd lean towards 2 noncombo, 3 combo - I made the switch from a WMAOP package to this after realizing that I wanted at least 2x combo MM/EO anyway beca...

Re: Leia Organa V - "Instead"

Kind of makes sense; "if unable to otherwise" sounds like it should take precedence, though - I can't otherwise here. If scheduling normal BD draws happened as an action that would make more sense, but it doesn't, no?

Leia Organa V - "Instead"

Leia Organa (V) P: 3; A: 3; Force-attuned Agenda: rebellion. May not be 'choked'. Gains [Republic] at Galactic Senate. Draws one battle destiny if not able to otherwise (if with an Imperial leader, may add one destiny to total power or attrition instead). 'Diplomatic' immunity to attrition <3. Say I...

Re: Podracing... what a bummer

There was anti-I Did It text but I feel like it got harsher? Maybe I'm wrong, but anyway, the new shield being harsher in and of itself makes it a much heavier cost to play racing, which in turn makes it tougher to get to I Did It... Just went and checked, and that text is the same, good call. So ma...

Re: Podracing... what a bummer

The thing with podracing pre-reset is, yeah, with the shield it's just starting a bunch of stuff that isn't helping you set up in exchange for a few retrieval... but for the LS, at least, I Did It! is a broken card and because your'e essentially 100% to win the race if you're racing and your opponen...

Re: AOBS v. TRM

I feel like I've seen some of the players who are better than me discuss only putting out one Xizor's Palace site early so that you can stack it and not give LS somewhere to go. Lets you ping with the objective and get a small drain in and if they want to come to Coruscant, they have to come to your...

Re: Could you point me to a recent IE list that you’d call the “typical” build?

My worlds day 3 list is a good place to start. Quite standard. https://www.starwarsccg.org/2019-worlds-day-3-joe-olson-ds-ie/ Agree, this is a good starting point. The two most recent high-level players lists were this one and Emil's list from last year; they differed by 13 cards, so when I played ...

Re: What Cards Would You Like To See Virtualized?

It's interesting. Of my ~4 favorite cards, Choke Vader is really the only one that couldn't be V'd, but none of them have been. I wonder if I'd like it if they were - I feel like probably not, weirdly. Might be cool if Rebel Scout got virtualized into something? That was one of the first cards I eve...

Re: Please talk me out of building a 12 Card Start Court mains deck

Interestingly, I always felt OA was a pretty interesting and even matchup for 3-effect court mains - P-59 plus two cracks at Dengar with Jabba's Haven isn't bad, and setting up Arica in the AC to retrieve 1 all game is awesome; plus they either eat the ping or waste resources at the Great Pit.

Re: Please talk me out of building a 12 Card Start Court mains deck

Bill is right about the effects. At a minimum, getting back Mara or Dengar or Dr. E and being able to pull a system vs decks that don't play space / for activation is enough of a reason to not do the 12-card-start. Past that, the 12-card start makes you way worse against TRM (which will take a hit w...

I like the GEMP deckbuilder but have never used Holotable. I do wish GEMP provided the ability to goldfish a deck. Hard agree with this. I mostly don't mind the Gemp deckbuilder, but I do miss the ability to goldfish a bit. Very helpful for getting to understand the viability of a brew, or getting ...
