    GrumpyMuffin reacted to Alphastealer in Time to test the famous POE/MAZ. This deck is insane.   
    To me the secret is to kill Maz first. Once she is gone, Poe is only really hitting his special on a claim or a lucky roll, but it is far from guaranteed.
    Villian counters this better with feel your anger, isolation, he doesn't like you, fore illusion, force choke.
    For me the answer is Palp. Palp can usually drop Maz round one if you have a few key cards in opening hand.
    Most other decks will suffer as they take 2-3 turns to ramp into good damage and do not have enough health to survive the onslaught.
    Another deck that can meet it head on is EKylo, EYoung Vader. Both of these characters benefit from the throne room battlefield, even if you win/lose the roll off.
    Kylo's special will also punish them for having a hand full of high cost cards. Add a few shuttles, force illusion and rise again to hold out.

    GrumpyMuffin got a reaction from John Tenzer in cheat caught on video??????   
    His action of placing the Decimator dial all the way across the board after he flipped it, as if he was making sure that his opponent saw the maneuver that was on the dial, looks like a subconscious response to his shady dial handling.  Especially since he didn't flip with Advanced dial and "show" it to his opponent.

    With the card name being "Adaptability," I've got my money on the rule being that you must verbally call an adjustment (-1/+1) of your Pilot Skill and turn the card to the appropriate side at the beginning of each Planning Phase before setting dials.

    Just to clear up any confusion...
     
    Before creating a new thread about the Dual Card, I actually did my due-diligence and read through the entire original article posting (6-pages at the time of my reading) as well as the ninja'd post (8 comments at the time of my reading).  If you need a reference, thats when conversation started about whether or not you could tractor beam your own ship for greater maneuverability.  There was little to no discussion, at that time, about the actual functionality of that card.  Only then did I decide to create the new post.  So, when you say, "for the last 90+ minutes," I'm sure it can be agreed upon that the timeframe is relative to when I read the thread vs. when you read the thread.

    I think "multiple choice" cards would be awesome.  Think of a card where, at a specific time, you were able to pick from two or three abilities printed on a singe card.  Or even a card where you rolled a red die and the action was based on what you rolled - Hit = Action A; Crit = Action B, etc, etc.  This opens up a lot of new possibilities.

    GrumpyMuffin got a reaction from Plainsman in How much have you spent and how do you rationalize it?   
    I've spend just over $1600.00 in ships alone.  To get a True Cost, I'd have to factor in the PlayMats, tokens, Maneuver Templates, KickStarter Campaigns, Battlefoam, Plano Boxes, card plastics, binders, etc. I'm not sure I'd be willing to put the time in to make that calculation.  Either way, I don't rationalize my X-Wing spending.  It really doesn't need justification.  It's a hobby, it's something that I have fun participating in and I don't have to sacrifice anything to stay active in x-wing.

    How hilarious would this be?  No range bonuses, no focus or evade and no target locks where you want them!  Probably not super competitive but should be fun to play.  I might run this at a tournament tomorrow.

    I don't mean to be a wet blanket here...  I know you got the okay from the TO, but will the other players be displeased that you'll be running cards that they won't have access to?
