Oh sorry. I meant the official spoiler list. The finalized “this is what the actual cards will actually do forever*” list won’t be ready until it’s pdf’d/gemp’d.
Surely it'll be ready at least a week or two before PDF/gemp'd, as it gets locked in after final playtesting and stuff? Or do you mean it just won't be released until then, even if it's ready earlier?

The official text/cards literally won’t be posted until the pdf is released.

I think EBT is going to post what proofing finalized.

Rather than have Flash of Insight V and Shot in the Dark V be retroactively added to set 0 in place of IJ and Evac, it might be less confusing to have them be set 14 preview cards or something like that.

Thanks EBT. I didn't spot any, but want to confirm--there are no changes made by d&d between the spoilers on holotheater last week and your post?

Just the old proofer, but isn't the list on Entanglements wrong? It's not alphabetic.

I find it a bit weird that we're getting doomstack bullets in Set 14 while also getting errata to Legend and a new Rey that pretty much encourages stacking in Legend? With the errata and new Rey, you can do 4 points of damage and 2 retrieval from a single site around Ultimatum.

At least you still need a second location to get around coward, but yeah. Seems weird to go two ways. However, I don't think doomstacking is gone. I also don't think it should be gone. It just shouldn't be 'the' way to play. But it's super difficult: either you make mains so weak, that you don't have to doomstack, but then mains can't really do anything to anyone. OR you make them better, so that they are mains and can take on a couple of guys - but then scrubs have to doomstack to survive.

Yeah, you'll probably have Jakku to satisfy Coward and Batte Plan. I'm neither against nor for a bit of doomstacking, just found it a bit schizophrenic to see bullets and then also the errata and Rey.

The issue is that Legend doesn't have a guaranteed way of pull Rey now. Even if you set up ABR (which requires Jakku), you can no longer use strike planning for General Leia and then ABR into Rey, who is now ability 6.

Is it guaranteed that Legend players will use Jedi Rey? Is she obviously better than Epp Rey? Especially given the non guarantee of getting her into hand.

Sidenote: Why Does Everyone Want To Go Back to Jakku should be reworked.

In Legend? The force pile pull is still there, but yeah, I guess Rey is just a good of candidate as any for that pull.

Honestly I wouldn't mind if the pull was moved down to While this side up. It makes more sense, and makes allows DS to pressure for a flip to cut them off the pull (or eat some weapons).

Tier 1 ones? Good question. Maybe some carefully-crafted Mains-y pile?

Yeah who knows. Any mains-y deck most likely packs Saitor v, which makes Reys ability to pull a lightsaber not as great (although i guess you could do two characters in a turn). I am offended by the "All of the Jedi", which borders on Cloud City in terms of silliness. Next thing you know, we'll have "Oola, Jabba's Palace THOT"

I mean, every other deck in existence gets by without pulling every one of its characters.

I think Legend could handle one being unpullable, and floating her.

Also there's the force pile pull, as mentioned.

Further, run an epp rey you can grab with Leia via ABR. Having an EPP is useful, and she'll probably die. Even if she doesn't, you can persona replace when you find Jedi.
