Card Dissection: Jar Jar Binks (LG47)

A long time ago, somewhere on Earth, George Lucas himself sat crafting what would be known as the Prequel Trilogy, with such hits as The Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith (don’t even get me started on sand). But not only did we get new movies, but new characters including the dearly beloved (please note the sarcasm), Jar Jar Binks (LG47). The Gungan, the myth, the legend, was recently announced in the upcoming Star Wars: Destiny –Legacies set.

Card Dissection: Ciena Ree (EW1)

Empire at War, as anyone can agree, skews pretty heavily toward getting supports and vehicles into play more often, and Ciena Ree (EW1) definitely fits that mold. As an Imperial pilot, she rose to the rank of Captain in the Imperial Navy, and was a veteran of the Galactic Civil War, specifically the battles of Endor and Jakku. How does she fit in the Destiny game? Read on and find out!

Card Dissection: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Master (LG32)

 

Of all of the Masters of the Force found in our favorite galaxy from a long time ago, far, far away, my favorite will always be Obi-Wan Kenobi. And, despite my overall underwhelmed perception of Episodes I-III, my favorite version of Obi-Wan is Prequel Obi-Wan. Suffice to say, I’m quite excited to see the newly announced Legacies set bringing Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Master (LG32) to the table!

Card Dissection: Ahsoka Tano (EW31)

My girl is here!!! Finally, Ahsoka comes to Star Wars: Destiny. This is a character card that once I saw, I knew I had do a card Dissection on. I know we don’t have the full set for Empire at War, but that doesn’t mean that we can not look at her as is. Join me as we take a look at the card my favorite character, Ashoka Tano (EW31).

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.

Card Dissection: Jyn Erso, Reckless Operative (SR44)

This card was one of the characters I obtained during my first night playing Star Wars: Destiny. At the time, I had no Starter Sets, and had simply attended a local tournament because the organizer had mentioned they’d be able to teach the game after the tournament. I was free for the evening so I figured I should go and learn what the game was all about. I pulled a Tie Pilot (SR4) from my first booster and had this one a little later on. Immediately, I knew I wanted to make a Jyn Erso (SR44) deck. She was a great lead character in one of my favorite Star Wars movies to date, and I was excited to test her out.

Card Dissection: Cargo Hold – Eravana (SR152)

There are a lot of cards to be excited about in Spirit of Rebellion, but in spite of all of the seemingly amazing cards that are sure to change our meta, I keep finding myself being most excited about Cargo Hold – Eravana (SR152). That’s right; Force Speed (SR55) is amazing, Fast Hands (SR150) is really good, and of course, Palpatine (SR11) is going to get some love, even if he turns out to be non-competitive. And don’t get me wrong, those cards are great, but I’m still most excited about Cargo Hold, and I’m going to tell you why!
