New Defensive Shields

Post by Hayes »

Dark side: Take Them Away
Light side: Revealed (no silver bullets for either card)

Once per game, lose 2 force to place out of play one opponent's undercover spy. Your opponent may retrieve 1 Force (may not be canceled).

(Sorry for the clickbait title, I just want to build a deck that doesn't start with AFA and Corran)

Limit this to opponent undercover spies? Otherwise it lets someone play an UC spy and then use their own shield to remove it from table if it's about to get into trouble.

I know you can use for example On The Edge to bail Boushh out of trouble but that's a card in hand, not much different from having a Houjix ready. This is a shield you always have.

If that actually happened, if it was used as a safety net to encourage more Undercover spy use...

I'm guessing, based on the timestamp, I was a bit sleep deprived. Updated OP (but idgaf what the underlying cards are).

I get that the point of these is to stop people from playing the UC spies in the first place, but I'd probably make the text "Once per game, opponent may retrieve one Force (may not be cancelled or reduced)" to ensure that you have to give your opponent something in exchange for placing their character OOP.

Otherwise, I'm kind of down for these.

LOL. I had 4 Wesa, Jar Jar, Naked 3po/Puller, C/TV, and one Quite and his u3po turn 1 stopped me from draining for 6 turns. :)

I remember all the times Amar talking about how horrible UC spies are.

Cool idea. Is A Gift acceptable collateral damage?

I like it hitting UC spies with no effect on them (ie not a gift).

But I really think the meta would benefit from these.
