[Article] Legacies - Spoiler Review So Far (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

I love that people are theorising that a character utilising shields might become "too strong"...

That would be a refreshing change from the "its turn 3, all your characters are dead" aggro meta that went on for a while there.

I think QuiGon/Yoda will be a great deck, but i can't see anything that makes it reliably broken... yet.

Yoda lacks damage sides, which makes all the pressure go onto his partner. In practise this turns into a ~11HP deck that´'s weak to control. That is not a good starting proposition.  He looks more like a mid-range or mill guy over aggro as he needs more dice out to really shine.

I´m more impressed by Secura. Her, red guns and Baze for four threatening dice from start with the focus option on top.  The problem is speed. Kanan's tempo ability is just so good by allowing you to play the various "...if you have the BG" control cards, utilize claim abilities and with focus too.

A sleeper no one talks about is Lobot from Rivals. That special is Lure of Power which is very versatile and marries well into his die. The vanilla scenario is him turning that random Resource side into three. Without losing tempo. Or one Shield into three (Qui-Gon approves!), one Focus into three.  How about three Discard? That smorgosboard of choices looks looks real nice to me.

Except Lobot only does that 1/6 of the time. Assuming you have the dice to resolve. And the opponent doesn't control the one viable side he has. I'm of the opinion that Lobot is absolute garbage, and he's evidence that FFG don't really get support characters, though Yoda's double special is a big step in the right direction.

Aayla seems almost like Poe (TPG), special chaining and annoying the crap out of the opponent at the same time

wonder if she and profitable connections could end up replacing Rey (TG), just fill the deck up with weapons that have powerful special sides and slap on lightbows and such on turn 1 without needing to reap any crystals

really do like Rey's free, guaranteed damage though
