2014 Scum and Villainy?

11 posts in this topic

Scum and Villainy. The most loathed faction in SWLCG to date. Annoying fan boys and power gamers alike by bombarding us with a lacking mechanical theme(Capture) and chaining the most feared Bounty Hunter in the galaxy(and his ship) to bottom of the power curve. While its counter part, Sith and its antithesis, Smugglers sit atop the meta. This faction needs help fast.

 

I find it very much upsetting that we wont see any new scum pods for months. Does this annoy anyone else?

I'm currently running this deck...

Mercenary Support x1

Hive of Scum and Villainy x1

Trandoshan Terror x2

Feeding the Pit x2

Jabba's Reach x2

Lucrative Contract x2

I'm having a lot of success with it so far. Resources are pretty much never a problem and all of those Trandoshans help cope with speeder and Sleuth Scout decks. Edge Battles are dealt with using Twist, bluffing, or Reversal, but usually you will have a high enough volume of units to dish out damage to attackers regardless of who strikes first. Destroying objectives is trickier, but clever attacks with Jabba's Pleasure Barge or Bossk can help you with that. All these new cards coming up are just gravy, really.

I have had a good mount of success with Scum as well.  I wouldn't run it in a tournament, but it can win pretty consistently.

 

I've been running:

 

2xJabba's Reach

2xJabba's Orders

2xCarbonite Transport

2xTrandoshan Terror

2xTatooine Crash

 

Not a lot of capture, but enough to trigger several abilities and a lot of really solid units.  I actually prefer having a minimal amount of capture since it is much less damaging when your opponent only gets 1 card back, especially since I can delay that from happening at all if I get Transport.  I usually win by flipping between force control and attacking depending on my opponent's deck/strategy.  The Slave I pod provides a good amount of punch and its easy to get unopposed with the amount of tactics.  Weequays are key to the deck, even if you end up paying 4 for them here/there since they are very difficult to deal with.
