@dbm - Thats a viable alternative, but I dont recommend it. Prior to Desolation, I had LMR in there instead of Message from Beyond, and I liked it a lot. Not because the Redemption is good (its not really), but because if had a lot of high-force value cards in it, so it made it easy to win edge battles early, which I desperately needed to do. If you wanted to go straight Jedi, its a possibility, but LMR doesnt really give you what you want. My concern is that you miss out on one of the most obnoxious characters in the game right now, and lower the number of big annoying characters by a bit, since the Redemption can't use any of the new stuff. Rejuv is nice and all, as is Return, but both took a hit from Lord Vader's Command and their overall need has decreased when using Message.
In my experience, Jedi now really just want to get a big annoying character with Obi's Spirit and then follow it up with more big annoying characters. Work your opponent into "I can't kill anything, and its only getting worse". If you can make this happen, you almost dont even care if you win edge or not after the first few turns. Han/Luke/Yoda/Obi are the best way to do this, since each of them has a way of putting your opponent's board presence in bad shape, then constantly turning the knife until they have lost.
Han's set also brings a lot to the table, in the resource and Swindled, which I think is really underrated. Crossfire is also very problematic, and the Twi'Lek is solid gold as a support character.
