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 http://swdestinydb.com/decklist/view/15776/ongoingkylogrevious-1.0 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/ePhasma Part 2… er… umm I meant eKylo/Grevious…

Sooooo.. yeah… Errata happened.. and well, my original ongoing series got, well… murdered! Maybe not murdered per se, but the deck needed to be changed since eCad/ePhasma was no longer a legal deck. I took another vote… this time even branching outside of just the The Chance Cube’s hangout (Shameless plug to become a Patron!). The voters were VERY clear on who they wanted me to work on and it was eKylo (TP1)/Grievous (AW3).

So last night I decided to run a version of my own making, taking with it what I have used before in other decks that are similar.

Immersion in Destiny – II. A Great Theme These Card Abilities Have

Welcome back. In part two of our little series on how the Star Wars theme is brought to the game, we will look at certain card abilities that just are very thematic. While there have been a ton of spoilers over the last week or so, and it is getting hard to keep up with all the news, here are my favorite thematic abilities from what I have seen so far.

To start off we look at a card that was just spoiled over the weekend. General Grievous (AW3) is a red villain character who boosts 10 health backed up by a high damage die. He comes with 10 wounds for 13 points or 18 in the elite version. His ability lets him steal a non-ability upgrade from a dying opponent character. How fitting is that for a Jedi Hunter who collects the lightsabers of the ones slain by him? And obviously, if his latest victim does not have a lightsabre, the General is flexible enough to accept another weapon or a piece of equipment as an alternative trophy.

Another card that I really like for its ability is One With The Force (AW42). It is a powerful hero blue upgrade which costs 4 resources, but it has an amazing die without blanks. You can only put it on a force user, but the upgrade becomes a permanent after the character dies. Given that the artwork shows old Obi-Wan, I initially thought that he his spirit guides the character. However, then I realized that the artwork is a force spirit. So it is not Obi-Wan helping out, but rather the blue character her- or himself becomes one with the force during life and therefore learns new powers and upon defeat it is the force spirit of the deceased who lingers on and interacts with the physical world for a while, helping and guiding the rest of the team.… Read More
