Crix pod x2
Rebel fleet x2
Hit and run
Aldaraans promise
Rogue 3 pod x2
Red 5 pod x2

Try that. Very fast and soon to be even more effective

I run that with blue squad instead of Aldaraans promise. It runs really fast. 7 targets of opportunity, with a couple ways to expand that, secret informant or adaptive strategy. Lots of blast damage. Very solid.

Would it be a bad idea to run both objectives?

Gave a friend who'd never played before (he'd only seen tutorials on YouTube etc.) a Freeholder deck.


He beat everyone at the table in turn 2-5 for 4 games straight, against various decks. (this was before the restricted cards list mind you)


Please don't say it wasn't broken then.

I think this discussion has changed drastically since the restricted list has been released. After the first two rounds of regionals worldwide, the astounding record of the Freeholders coupled with Dash made for a combination that was so good that, as Flip the Force has commented, "there is no reason not to play it." I am fairly certain that if the total number of tournament wins were tallied with them and compared to its tournament losses, there would be no question to this fact.


That being said, and to the baseline of the conversation, I love the game right now. There are so many options for decks that it is an exciting place to be. The new sets have inspired an entire crop of successful decks that do not need hard counters to beat but still win often enough to be tournament worthy. The Force struggle has become far more important than just a way to do a single damage or get an extra click of the dial. I believe FFG did it right by making it about resources and unit control; ensuring that players absolutely need to pay attention to it or suffer potential serious consequences.
