The Highlander tournament was tremendously fun today. I would strongly recommend the format for any group trying to organize an event between the big tournaments or releases. Each game was very different and your own decks could also play wildly differently each time There was a lot more variance than in regular play, but decks were still able to field a slew of mains. Actually even more so since they couldn’t run duplicates! It’s really scary facing off against Vader, Mara, Sariss and a Defense Fleet. Also I think I was hit with more There is No Escapes today than ever before in my life.
Random musings about my decks
First turn wampa is awesome. Two wampas on the first turn in brutal
Mara Jade is very self sufficient
Mara Jade with Forward Command Post is awesome
Veers can give so many guns
6 Hoth Objectives and 5 Battles of Hoth creates for one resilient highlander deck
Desolation of Hoth swings games!
Looping Desolation of Hoth with Palpatine is disgusting
Turn one Heavy Blaster Emplacement does so much work over the game
Looping Old Ben’s Spirits on your mains with Message from Beyond is still really good
Obi-Wan has a lot of tactics.
LS heat of battles help empty boards.
Forgotten Heroes helps you draw more heat of battles
Jedi Mind Trick wins games
