I tried searching on Polar Haven and couldn’t find Center of Tyranny. Can someone describe the deck?

It was a light deck based on Coruscant. You played a lot of ability 2 and 3 rebels, i think you flipped if you blew up a shield generator on courscant and opponent lost 3-5 force. Then when flipped your ability 2/3 rebels got battle and drain bonuses? Probably off somewhat but from a very zoomed out view kinda like no idea in some respects

They also got forfeit boosts.

You would start out pulling a system and Wedge (ds2). Then pull another guy and could pull field dressing as well.

You would drop what you could to the power plant on coruscant. Then during your control phase, you would try and blow it. You need a destiny - something for # of rogues there > 5 I think. Then you'd flip and pull any card in reserve deck. When rogues died, they would go to their version of droid racks and keep coming back. They would also be able to steal ships, they would get drain bonuses from Bail I think. It was a really resilient deck that you just didn't expect to be from scrubs.

Did anyone specifically mention the German beatown WYS deck? That should for sure go in here. Boomrace was a pretty influential deck insofar as it highlighted building to achieve an extreme end (the race/bunker turn). How to Cook a Chevin beautifully presaged a lot of other "fakeout" decks. And I think, as Casey mentioned, Reid's toolbox CCT IG-88 deck was a masterwork and really highlighted how useful destiny manipulation, card selection, and denying your opponent characters can be...
