Ongoing eKylo/Grievous Part 3 (technically two for eKylo/Grievous but eh whatever!)

So last time I left you all with a deck list of and had made some really good choices from the previous build. One of the biggest issues I was having was some of the mitigation cards weren’t really cutting it, so I needed to cut back on a few and go with cheaper options. I’ve been finding this deck is REALLY tight on the resources. I never really like giving my opponent free damage with Enrage (AW81) but with as greedy as this deck is with the funds, you’ll need it.

So going into my Sunday game I’m feeling quite happy with the deck so far. My first opponent is none other than Mrs. Kim Breeze!! Oh how exciting! Problem – the night before she requested I give her a decklist… sooo she’s running a Mace Windu (EW34) deck and I know exactly what’s in there.

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!

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.

Tournament Report: Asheville Extravaganza

The Asheville Extravaganza was the first large scale tournament in the local area and the talk leading up to it was that there was going to be a huge turn out. Leading up to the event, my testing partner Chase and I had been going back and forth on a few different decks. I was high on Villain Blue deck variations while Chase had been having a lot of success with Hero Red. I think in the two weeks leading up to the event, we put in about 10-15 games throwing our best takes on both decks against each other. We kept finding that the Hero Red (more about this later) was winning at a high percentage against non-melee decks but had a somewhat unfavorable match up against Blue Villains.

League Report: Level 1 Game Shop – Week 4

I want to start this article off with something I meant to put in the end of last week’s. I’m going to end this series now. I figure there’s only so many times you guys want to read “I lost a ton and it was close every game.” I’m planning to do a wrap-up of the entire league in a podcast bite. That should come in about two weeks.

League Report: Level 1 Game Shop – Week 3

Week three has come and gone, and I’m back with more games and more insight! I really mixed things up this week, playing 3 different decks! First, I started out with eDooku/Bala/Trooper, getting in two games. Then, I got in two games with eKylo/eJango, as well as one game with eRey/eFinn. I’ll do a quick overview of the games, then we can discuss what how I’m handling things after this week.

LEAGUE REPORT: Level 1 Game Shop – Week 2

Week two is here! After going 1-4 last week, I was excited to see how things would go this week. I was determined to redeem myself. While I wasn’t dead last after week one, I wanted to ensure that I could cement myself into the top four early, ensuring that I get either the tokens or full art Kylo Ren (AW11) at the end of the league. Well, things didn’t go so well, my confidence was shot, and a friend helped me come to an interesting realization that I will mention after my short event report.
