Are there any Decipher cards that seemed especially rare to you?

Post by dms »

I'm not talking about Ultra Rares, or highly prized rares that were hard to find for that reason. I mean regularly rare cards that for whatever reason you never came across in packs or stores' binders. There were some cards that I never saw, despite playing the game for years and having a huge collection.

For example, I'd never seen R3-T6 before when it popped up on GEMP.

Another is Concussion Grenade. I never pulled one, never saw one in a game or a store's binder. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the real card and a fanmade one.

Were there any cards like this for you?

When I needed them, I had trouble finding the following:

Jedi Levitation, Janus Jerrick, Force Push, LTWW, and a few more of the common v-cards that are for good cards like Anakin, etc.

Super random, but Alternatives to Fighting. Then again, I haven't made a concerted effort, but for some reason, I don't have that card.

When I got back into collecting a few years ago, for some inexplicable reason, The Circle is Now Complete was the LAST card I needed to complete my set of Premiere. Thought it was a pretty fun coincidence.

Outer Rim Scouts.

I dreamed of having 10+ for an ISB deck, but struggled tooth and nail to get the few I could get. I think I had more DVDLOTSs than ORSs.

Expand the Empire. Two of us had almost full Premiere sets and no expand the empire.

I agree with the OP about R3-T6. Definitely did not see much of that card.

That was Jango wasn't it? I think I had trouble with that one too.

Oh also any methods neccessary was weird. I knew I had them, couldn't find them. Opened whatever enhanced pack it was in, somehow lost that when I needed it. Ordered a few from PC and just sucked up I'd never find the card when I needed it.

Most of the U1 (Uncommon-1) cards, or as they should have been known, Ultra-Uncommons.

I find that the U1’s, particularly from Hoth, like to disappear from me. Not when I open packs, etc. but when I go looking for a particular card for a deck. I also conveniently have like 20 extra copies of the other U1’s I don’t need when that’s going on as well.

Dark Collaboration WB.

For some reason, my friend and I had a lot of mains of which we had more copies than that card. To this day, it seems like it's the rare in my non-mains premiere box that is in the lower numbers.

Even today, I have yet to get a single JP Leia.. bought two near-complete JP sets and neither had it, no random boosters have had it, at this point I'm refusing to buy the single out of spite...
