Ok… Here is the deal. Sadly, I am very new to the competitive card gaming world. However, I have picked up the game quickly and was competitive. Then the new set came out and I took some stuff out of my rebel deck to add Wedge and the Speeders. Then, like an idiot I chose to switch to a Jedi deck with Luke and Han as this deck had been giving me fits because the Empire has little to counter targeted strike. Needless to say, being used to aggressive Rebel decks, I did not fair well playing the Jedi deck (mostly because of awful draws.. I won the only match that I got Han OR Luke :-(…) My first mistake was to play with a deck I had not extensively practiced with, of this I am painfully aware. But I chose it because the Empire can't really counter it and if the opponent brings out the Emporer Han can make quick work of him. My mind is ablaze with questions. First, Jedi or Rebel? Both have their merits and I don't know which works best. And second, How can I counter Han and Luke when I am playing Empire (Being an aggressive player I like to play the Imperial Navy)? Third, I noticed, and have read many things to this effect, that the Tournament rules favor the Imp. Navy over the Sith control because it takes LS objectives destroyed into account when deciding tie breakers. However, Sith control decks, when played properly, can be almost unbeatable (ALMOST)…. Lastly, I am not entirely sure what a "controld deck" looks like, what should or shouldnt be in one, or even how to play it if I had one… Therefore, can anyone help me with this?? There is enough here that I can imagine it should generate tons of talking points and, honestly, the more the merrier cuz I need the help… I just want to be competitive. 

Thanks a million everyone!

You're on the wrong forum for this advice. I hope you got what you needed elsewhere.

ok i will do my best to help you out with the knowledge i have.

the first thing i will ask is how you are playing han without resource matching to his affiliation (smugglers and spies) unless you are getting the luck of the draw everytime you play your first three objective sets and are managing to get his obj set then you cant resource match him, meaning you cant play him. So i personally wouldnt even put him into your obj set build if you dont have more than one smugglers obj set.

secondly, i run jedi and sith affiliation, and run equal amounts of rebel and jedi, sith and imps. as long your resource matching correctly you shouldnt have any dramas. i run equal amounts so i know i will have at least both affiliations to resource from, from the first round.

both affiliations on both the ls and ds have good combinations to be very effective, dont listen to stigmas and just do what you think will work well and practise it.

Get to know every rule, every card, every tactic and you will become a good player.
