You get Errata, you get Errata, WE ALL GET ERRATA!! Aka so long to the ongoing eCad/ePhasma.

First, a shout out to my homie FN-2199… you got hit with not one but TWO hammers of justice because you were just so good.

With Fantasy Flight updating the Rules References, it will bring about a new meta for all to see. While the official date of acceptance is not until November 6th, I’m already just planning events and decks in my head based off the new rules.

Let’s break it down to what is now “fixed” and what this blogger thinks still needs to be addressed.

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!

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!

Let’s start at the beginning….

Again.. after each new set it seems like we are always starting out with a fresh new set of cards getting the whole Meta figured out. So far I think there are going to be some FUN decks as well as some competitive ones out there from the days of old that might be able to come back to the top. Let’s go over some of the fun decks that I’ve found so far.

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.

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.
