Hi,

 

was wondering if anyone could help with building a deck. I've only just started and want to enter the store championship this weekend.

 

at the moment the only cards i have are 1 core set and 1 the desolation of hoth pack.

With that I would say go for a Rebel deck using Hoth Ops and core set vehicle sets.

For DS I would mix Sith and Navy core sets. Vader, emperor, Devastator, defense protocol, counsel, kuat, Motti. I wouldn't use any of the DS stuff from the pack.

1x imperial command

1x kuat reinforcements

2x hoth operations

1x decoy at dantooine

1x mobilize the squadrons

Add Hit and run to the LS. Use rebel as your affiliation.

Add Recon Mission, and the other two non Imperial only sets to your DS make Sith your affiliation. So all the Navy sets except for Tarkin.

Personally I would go:

 

DS - Imperial Faction

1x Emperor's Web

1x Fall of the Jedi

1x Counsel of the Sith

2x The Killing Cold

1x Black Squadron Assault

1x Imperial Command

1x Kuat Reinforcements

1x Death and Despair

1x Defense Protocol

 

You'll have a 6/4 split so you (most likely) won't be resource blocked. Notice the Black Squadron objective can be used to remove a focus token from backstabber. There are also three objectives of fighters to make use of Talon Roll and the Black Squadron Pilot.

 

For the LS I'd go:

 

LS - Jedi Affiliation

1x A Hero's Journey

1x A Journey to Dagobah
1x The Secret of Yavin 4
1x The Defense of Yavin 4
1x Mission Briefing
1x Fleeing the Empire
1x The Rebel Fleet
1x Draw Their Fire
2x Hoth Operations

 

Luke can be a powerhouse on his own, and you'll toss in the protectors to help out him, Leia, and Mon Mothma. The protectors can also just be used to attack with your ships to give them shields. You'll gain a lightsaber deflection that you can use to either redirect damage to leia, or off of Luke/Mon Mothma. You end up with a good number of resource generating cards (6). A Journey to Dagobah gives you a ship with a lot of damage capability that you can take advantage of if you get a good opportunity to strike.

Good luck and have fun!

With the Sith heavy environment you are likely to face that is why I recommended vehicles over LS mains. I do like the idea of adding in Red 5 and changing affiliation to Jedi.

But it's all a matter of personal preference. With only one core set it's difficult.

Tip with all the LS sleuth scout decks out there relying on certain objectives be aggressive with your navy ships. Play low cost storm troopers to protect against their attacks.

Yup I was just thinking of ways to help with Mon Mothma and Leia. Also wanted to add another twist and some kind of event cancel for him :). Hit and Run is a really good choice too.

Toqtamish is offering really good advice. You will see a lot of people playing ships that can't be blocked by units costing more than two, if you can flood the board you'll find a good blocking capability is helpful.

Sorry to break it to you, but with just 1 Core and 1 Force Pack, at a store championship, you're gonna get destroyed. :-p  I would check Barnes and Noble if you have one nearby, you'll probably be able to find another Core there. Maybe even Edge of Darkness and/or some Force Packs.
