So after buying two core boxes (isn't everyone?), I decided that I probably shouldn't gleen decks from other players.
I've really only played games with other newbs so it's not like I know what's down for competitive play. However, I am a competitive CCG player, so I figure I would give it a try:
First off Light Side
On the LS, I wanted to make a deck that took advantage of the stupid broken cards that weren't Princess Leia. Yes, I understand there's a lot of stupid good stuff to do with her, but I wanted to see if I could focus on the not so stupid. So I basically focused on the main Jedi, Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda. All 3 come in different objective sets so I'd have to include at least one of each. It just so happens that Obi-Wan's set (Forgotten Heroes) also happens to draw you an extra card when you throw one of those force users into play. Unfortunately, Luke and Obi-Wan both cost 4 or more, which means you won't get much card draw on a turn. So perhaps to maximize, I wanted to stick in other Force Users. The only one I could really find in the collation of Jedi was the Jedi in Hiding. Only costs 2, and that's 2 for 2 Unit Strikes. Very nice. Plus it's possible that I could put into play 2 at a time, that's 2 cards I could draw out of it. And those trixy edge battles need cards. To collaborate all this together, I wanted to maximize the output on card draw AND synergy (again, staying away from Leia and her silly Rebel Alliance). Throw in some Yodas, and some high force count Objectives, and more Jedi in Hiding (off of Jedi Training) and viola, I haz decklist.
So here it is:
2x Jedi Training
2x Forgotten Heroes (Obi-Wan, hiForce)
2x Last Minute Rescue (jedi recursion, extremehiForce)
2x A Hero's Journey (Luke)
2x In You Must Go (Yoda, hiForce)
That said, I am looking to revamp this to somehow include a Corporate Exploitation (swarm is good since unopposed gives you a free objective dmg) and somehow also fit in Reconnaisance Mission (meta cards and +1 refresh).
On the Dark Side I already had a plan: I wanted to make a trooper deck. And since the DS already has a nice selection of Storm Troopers, I can throw in the Trooper buff card, some Espa Troopers and call it a day.
So here's the DS Trooper deck:
Imperial Navy Faction
2x The Ultimate Power (wait.. a card that blows up Objectives! Elite Stormtroopers? Grand Moff Tarkin?? WEEEEEEEE)
2x Take Them Prisoner (I need the trooper buff, Trooper Assault, in this deck, and it comes with Death Star Troopers… WIN!)
2x Imperial Command (Duty Officer is awesome, as is Admiral Motti, and Heavy Stormtrooper Squads.. SQUEEEE)
2x Death and Despayre (this was mostly filler, but added Devastator, more money, added life for objective, and had a cool name)
1x Corporate Exploitation (DUH!)
1x Reconnaisance Mission (I wanted meta cards)
That said, I could replace Death and Despayre with some of the Neutral stuff, like Ewoks or the Droid one.. I just want to try it out like this first. (and the Devastator is one bad MUTHA).
Comments, alterations, and posting your own decklists ARE WELCOME!
