So far my deck ideas have all been pretty offensive based with the only defensive properties being there to protect my heavy hitters and hold objectives
But with the Death Star dial ticking over every turn this gives the Dark Side the prefect opportunity to play a defensive and control strategy
Only problem is - the best cards for this are (currently) across all 3 DS affiliations
I am however, going to attempt to make this work!
So first you have
2 x Take them Prisoner
2 x Bespin Exchange
2 x Cruel Interrogations
these give you your capture objectives and card actions, focus tokens to lock down the enemy, intimidate, enhancement removal and some units
and ignoring resource matches for the moment these 3 objectives and cards has (IMO) really really good synergy
but, we cannot overlook resource matching for ever so we need -
2 x Looking for Droids
Most importantly to ignore resource match requirements but also Viper Droid units to keep in play and the pretty handy 'It's Worse' card
finally I think this deck can benefit from
2 x Shadows of Dathmir
Nightsisters for the force struggle, Disturbance in the force and of course, The Rancor as an ace in the hole
The Hands Blessing is a pretty handy card to have as well
So while not guaranteed I think this deck shouldn't have resource issues and I am pretty keen to give it a go (after I test my Imperial Navy deck)
My only really worry about this deck is that it might not be fun to play against…..
thoughts, opinions? maybe a better 5th objective set than Shadows of Dathmir?
