You don't want Advanced Gunnery as both your ISDs have Gunnery Teams and the FAQ confirms that the word "cannot" on the GT card can't be overridden by anything - even the scenario. Most wanted would be a good alternative or switch out the Kuat's GTs for BT Avenger (ISD-I version or ISD-K).

Fighters will be a problem. A decent Sloane list will kill and ISD easily then try to avoid the other - offering you a flotilla or a Quasar kill in return. I think a Slicer Tool on one of the Gozantis would help a lot. To avoid eating into the bid too much the bulkheads cold go and maybe even Relentless.

Drop gunnery teams on the kuat for Boarding troopers and avenger. Might even be better to swap apt for external racks, but I'm not sure on the math for that. And I'll second the slicers tools comment.

I would stay away from a cymoon in a Double ISD list that has a Kuat in it. 1. they are trying to be in different ranges, and 2. The Cymoon is very easy to destroy with anything. I am still wary of vader because he gets rid of your tokens. I have been running this to much success:

Assault: Advanced Gunnery
Defense: Fighter Ambush
Navigation: Superior Positions

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Hondo Ohnaka (2)
• Comms Net (2)
• Suppressor (4)
= 31 Points

ISD Kuat Refit (112)
• Grand Admiral Thrawn (32)
• Governor Pryce (7)
• Boarding Troopers (3)
• Electronic Countermeasures (7)
• Leading Shots (4)
• External Racks (3)
• Avenger (5)
= 173 Points

ISD Kuat Refit (112)
• Captain Brunson (5)
• Boarding Troopers (3)
• Electronic Countermeasures (7)
• Leading Shots (4)
• External Racks (3)
• Sovereign (4)
= 138 Points

Squadrons:
• Ciena Ree (17)
• Mauler Mithel (15)
= 32 Points

Total Points: 374

It is really risky and a lot of fun. it's not the best way of running it I am sure... I also have some motti lists if you are into him. They are already out on the forum. This kind of list is why I got into armada. So I can chuck a whole bunch of dice and blow entire ships up in one blast

Touche. I always feel wary, but it is more the pilot than the list. Congrats @Ginkapo!  Did you feel that your ISDs were trying to do different things? Did you slow down the Cymoon and have the Kuat going faster? Were you able to use the Lambda to any effect? In comparison I am a newb, so I have many questions. Teach me master of Double ISDs!

Right that's why Pryce is so good. I normally set Pryce for turn 2. Do you find yourself setting pryce that early, or is it normally slower for you? Many of my games end up ending on turn 5 with a 400 for me. How fast do you run your ISDs? I always start them at speed 2 because that gives them the most flexibility in speed change. I assume the Cymoon is brutal against MSU? What are your "weaknesses" and is your bid sufficient to win it 100% of the time?

Raddus is certainly an issue... I think the best way to go against raddus is either super aggressively, or super conservative. What is your general plan with raddus? 

Happy 8,000th post!

I would suggest replacing gunnery teams on the kuat with ordinance experts to get a re roll on the black with out having to spend a defense token also then you have a ship to use with advanced gunnery. Other than that it seems pretty solid.

First, I did not take this list to worlds. Took a Motti LMSU. ISD Kuat with gsd, arq, raider and goz. When 2-2 day 1. Made day 2. Went 1-2 day 2. Finished 31st. My Achilles heel was imperial 2 ship. Had no real experience against it. But I learned for the better. Just thrilled I made day 2.

Would you mind describing in broad strokes how you fly this list/what objectives you tend to go for/what your gameplan usually is? 
I am planning to try something similar and would love pointers.

Point the Kuat at the biggest thing and kill it using a Pryce doubletap. Kill everything else with a following Cymooon...... its fairly self explanatory, point and shoot :D
