Dark Side Droid Synergy Cards

Post by Corran »

Hello, I'm messing around with a MKOS deck that uses Jawas and Droids, since some of the unique Jawas have relevant droid text. It's probably going to go nowhere, but I'm looking for some cards that synergize with droids. The big two are Self-Destruct Mechanism and Oh, Switch Off, but I'm drawing a blank on others. Right now my droid package is EV 9D9, the typical scum droid package, and a couple B2 Battle Droids for good measure. Suggestions? Also suggestions for droids that I may have forgotten?

The Wed Septoid droid works ok with Scum, if you're running Chokk.

Or better yet, just ban DDM from playing creatures.

That's a neat little combo. Maybe I'll cut Boba Fett, Bounty Hunter for it.

Thanks! This was the card I was blanking on.

It's not the perfect platform for it however. I used to play SYCFA Ties with it.
I would then get a TIE Scout (since you're playing SRFighters x2/3 anyway), add the droid and Chokk aboard, with Justice V.
You could hold Battle Plan this way, vs anything but some destiny 7.
To restore the forfeit, you'd just have to move out Chokk and droid during the move phase.

In court, if they saber your droid, he's immediately gone however.

Side note: Chokk is so underrated in MKOS (probably in Court, too, though I don't know that deck as well). I'm not sure why more people don't play him.

He doesn't fit in Court because you have to fit in so many mediocre bounty hunters. He's probably worth it in MKOS, especially if you have something that beefs up folks' forfeit. I really want to play double Jawa Pack.

Forced Servitude can also be good and is pulled by SIG(v).
If you're playing B2s, then There They Are can be good as well.

Yeah, though even without a forfeit bonus, he at least lets characters forfeit for their value as opposed to zero (unless they're SATMed). He also makes leaders harder to hit and can be up to 14 power with Jabba! Been a mainstay in my MKOS from the early days.
