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.

This is one of those Battlefields. Here we will attempt to understand why.… Read More
