Anakin pairings?

Recommended Posts

What do you think? He’s cheap, powerful, and has tons of options due to being neutral. 

With villains, it’s gotta be Tormented Kylo for mono-color, because he can’t pair with Spirit of Rebellion Vader. But who else? For hero, his ability synergizes really well with Qui-Gon Jinn, but his Villain version is probably just more powerful (since shields aren’t very valuable with Vibroknife being a thing). What about paired with two magnaguards? Or non-elite paired with the Grand Inquisitor?

Magnas are 9 pts each, so you can't fit 2 unfortunately. 1 MG, 1 Servant isn't the worst though.  Getting access to Electrostaff and Imperial HQ is pretty clutch for economy.

It says 20 cards and 9 dice, so I’m guessing there’s 20 different cards in this “set”, nine of them with dice, and the draft pack comes with exactly one of each. So, like the two-player starters, you’ll want two.

But will that be legal? If so...  That seems like pay to win.

They seemed to indicated that draft/sealed would take on the format of 'one Rivals pack' + 6/8 Boosters. So you can only use one Rivals pack to play legally in draft/sealed, but you will want to pick up a second Rivals pack so that you can run two copies of those cards/upgrades/characters in constructed.

FFG parting ways with valuable dice profits?

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHA doubt it....

What's more: you need to buy FIVE of these to get a full playset of Jawas. But who would do that? Me.

With all the cards being neutral there should be some interesting choices to be made.

If you play a sealed/draft do you but the set and the packs or can you come with a Rivals Pack that you opened elsewhere?

If you have to buy a new pack each event 5 Jawa cards may be easy enough to collect in time and a few events.

I'd try him with elite K-2SO, more consistent damage than Rey, better protection than Kanan, while still giving access to Bestow. Not extremely competitive most likely, but I'd like to try it anyway.

It would be an avaricious shop owner indeed who forced you to buy a new Draft pack every time you came in to play. It could happen, but I feel like most would be fine letting you bring your cards from a previous draft.

Finn! You get options for both actions out of his ability. But, that deck would also stink of Finn, so probably not.

Hey that's not bad. You could pack two Riot Batons, two E-11D Rifles, and two DT-29's. Give Anakin the Baton, and either equip the guns to Finn, or throw them out with the special for a sneaky bit of damage. I like it!

If these new neutral characters only come with one die... we're going to see a lot of jawas and 26/27 points worth of non-elite characters being played.

Me and some friends made a draft tournament when EaW came out. Only difference with those rules were that you had to bring 2 non-unique character of your choice instead of the draft pack and we drafted 9 boosters instead of 6. What happened is that everyone played 3+characters, nobody elite. It was really fun and a good change from constructed.

Be nice to combo with stuff that lets you pull stuff from your discard pile, preferably expensive stuff you couldn't pay for anyway and therefore used with Anakin's ability

So, Rise Again (sabers and forcepowers are great on anakin) or re-equip (electrostaff and riot baton especially) 

Wait re-equip is hero. Derp
