  1. I would highly recommend the Hoth cycle. DS and LS got some excellent additions. As far as a Hoth only format, I don't think there are enough objectives for either side.
  2. I've seen a couple of drafting ideas for this game, but they didn't really seem to work for me. Here are some draft format ideas I have: 1) Players will build a LS and a DS deck, minimum 10 objective decks each. 2) Players IGNORE all resource matching while playing matches. 3) Players may play any cards in combination with any objectives. 4) Shuffle all LS/DS objectives together. (Or you can select 20-30 of each LS/DS) 5) Create packs of LS/DS objectives mixed together. Players will use the abilities and resources from the objectives, but IGNORE any resource matching. Select objectives one at a time, until all are picked. 6)Shuffle all LS/DS cards together. (Or you can select 100 DS and 100 LS cards and shuffle together. 7) Create packs of 15 if you want to make (MTG style packs to draft). Google: Draft Variants if you want 2 player drafts like Winchester, Wiston draft formats. Select cards until all LS/DS are picked. 8) Players build LS/DS decks simulataeously as they draft. 9) Players play normal rules, rotating from LS/DS decks between matches. Thoughts? I am going to test this idea this weekend.
  3. YES! A LS card that has more than one blast damage icon. More Luke Skywalker-esque cards. LS needs some gas.
  4. I have never been a fan of Sensor's Placed. It, like the latest Hoth spoiler, doesn't destroy DS objectives. I don't care about defending my LS objectives, or unit damage on LS. Give me blast damage or go home. In that case, I would make sure my confidence in the thread title is well-justified. If you ever lose as the LS, it's unfortunate to have destroyed LS objectives, since that's the DS tiebreaker. My comment was more of a general bewilderment. LS pods are too heavy on unit/pistol damage. I suppose LS decks win much too easily with multiple units equipped with blast damage.
  5. The hyperlinked pod lists take you right to the number.
  6. After playing around do you prefer this version or 1x Rebel Fleet instead of 1x Defense of Yavin 4? I have never been a fan of Sensor's Placed. It, like the latest Hoth spoiler, doesn't destroy DS objectives. I don't care about defending my LS objectives, or unit damage on LS. Give me blast damage or go home.

  9. Further testing indicates that my Hoth Speeder build is awful. I have tested the GenCon list: Deck Created with CardGameDB.com Star Wars Deck Builder Affiliation: Rebel Alliance (Core) Total Objective Sets: (10) 2x The Rebel Fleet (Core) Home One (Core) Y-Wing (Core) Repair Droid (Core) Hidden Outpost (Core) Target of Opportunity (Core) 2x Renegade Squadron Mobilization (The Search For Skywalker) Renegade Squadron (The Search For Skywalker) Renegade Squadron Operative (The Search For Skywalker) Munitions Expert (The Search For Skywalker) Echo Caverns (The Search For Skywalker) Target of Opportunity (The Search For Skywalker) 2x Prepare for Evacuation (A Dark Time) Renegade Squadron Escort (A Dark Time) Renegade Squadron Escort (A Dark Time) Action-series Bulk Transport (A Dark Time) Ion Cannon Burst (A Dark Time) Battle of Hoth (A Dark Time) 2x Raise the Stakes (Edge of Darkness) Blockade Runner (Edge of Darkness) Cloud City Operative (Edge of Darkness) Bothan Spy (Edge of Darkness) Smuggling Compartment (Edge of Darkness) Swindled (Edge of Darkness) 2x The Defense of Yavin 4 (Core) Red Two (Core) Y-Wing (Core) Astromech Droid Upgrade (Core) Hidden Outpost (Core) Rebel Assault (Core) This isn't perfect, but it punches for a ton of damage. I don't like the the fact that the deck relies heavily on Defense of Yavin 4. Blockade Runner has impressed more and more. If you DS opponent is ready with 2 drop units, in mass, they are going to get crushed. Home One, an oldie but goldie, is still fantastic. I want to tweak the resource base to include a few more 2 resource generating objectives. This, or Falcon and Friends, seems to be the best, although WAY outclassed by most DS decks. Is it time to return to Yoda and Message from Beyond?
