Card Staples: Crash Landing (LG 137) – Our Newest 0-Cost Removal

One of the most important aspects of any deck in Star Wars: Destiny is dice removal. Most dice removal cards come with a condition: giving your opponent a choice (e.g. Loth-Cat and Mouse (SR114)), requiring you to have dice in your pool (e.g. Guard (SR103)), forcing you to meet a play restriction (e.g. Defensive Position (AW104)), etc. Three things you should consider when deciding which dice removal cards to include in your deck are its play cost, playable situations, and place in the game.

Many of the best dice removal cards cost 1 resource to play: Electroshock (AW159), The Best Defense (AW75), and Isolation (AW85).  With the upcoming release of Legacies this December, we have another 0-cost removal card that is worth a look — Crash Landing (LG137).… Read More

Ongoing eCad Bane/ePhasma Part 1

After posting a poll in our hangout, the winning deck for me to run and do a blog about was none other than Cad Bane/Phasma.

After Sabine (EW40) and Poe (TP25) were first in the polls for a couple of days, I thought I’d need to design one around them, but I was wrong when people then voted for this pairing.

So the plan is to run this deck into the ground until I either am sick of running it, or you the people are tired of hearing me talk about it!… Read More

A Casual Player’s Perspective of the Australian Nationals

Today, we share an article from guest author Simon Turner about his experiences in the Australian Nationals.

Star Wars: Destiny Australian Nationals

A Report From a Casual Gamer

By Simon Turner

“Hmm, time to put together a deck for the Australian Nationals,” I tell my deck-building buddy the night before the competition. “I need a deck that can win, what do you like?”

“What? You never play decks that can win!” He says. “I like Wookiees.”

So we end up with a deck that has a Wookiee theme. It even has a fun opener. When I sit down and my opponent asks: “So what are you playing?” I go: “Wookiee.” And place down a Wookiee Warrior. “Wookiee” as I place the second one, followed immediately by slapping my hand down on them saying “Snap!” as I place Snap Wexley down.… Read More

Star Wars: Destiny Australian National Championship

Saturday, October 7th marked the Star Wars:Destiny Australian National Championship with a field of 99 participants. The results of Australia’s tournament truly speaks to the meta that we are in post-Empire at War and with the addition of the Two Player Box. First place was won by Blake Moody who was piloting eFN-2199 (SR2) and eKylo Ren (TP1), which is currently at the top of the meta, with many speculating that Fn-2199 will soon see a nerf to his ability. Within the top 10 of the tournament, four of the decks piloted were eFN-2199 and eKylo Ren, take a look below to see the top 10 from Saturday’s event.… Read More

Card Dissection: Mace Windu (EW34)

Let’s get this party started (get it? Because Mace apparently doesn’t like parties and his most famous line is “This party’s over” (in Star Wars, that is)). Ok, I will stop with the terrible puns, but let’s get right down to it. Empire at War has been revealed and the first card I was excited to see was, you got it, Mace Windu. Every since I saw him in Attack of the Clones I knew he was a bad ass; how else do you live in a galaxy far far away wielding a purple lightsaber and not be a bad ass. Not only does Mace show up on his own card, but he is also on Master of the Council (EW36) (we will get back to that card in a minute), which is saying something as he beat out Yoda for that card. But what has me most excited is the potential for Mace.… Read More
