I'm confused unless the mercenary is attacking alone he'll have unit damage, so every unit in this set has unit damage, best yet if he's attacking with the main it will be a black unit damage instead of white.
It'd be insane to attack alone as a single heat will kill you. I think with the large number of cheap units in S&V this unit can be a powerhouse in some decks (assuming you can keep him alive). Those IG88 droids, and jawa's will work really nice with the chuds in this set.
also Jedi set looks to include Vima Da Boda.
From the product page we'll be getting Jedi Master Qu Rahn in pack 2, so that's two new unique Jedi units already.
There's a little blurb about interrogating prisoners with Sith on the product page for this pack as well, so maybe some more capture support for non S&V factions.
I'm confused too on why you replied to my post.
I said "basically no unit damage unless your are attacking every turn", meaning it does have situational UD albeit bad for the DS situational UD. Point being as the DS even with a hyper aggressive deck you have to defend at least a little bit. If you think you can outpace my damage with a one black blast unit and kill 4-5 objectives before I can kill 3 as the LS - lol. This unit wouldn't be as bad with the LS, but if you draw two of these your first turn as the DS you are in trouble. You just gave your opponent the board state and you can't even defend, let's pray that they didn't draw a TS unit, cuz you just wasted a whole turn. People saying that these units are great with Dannik are cracking me up, yeah, if you even draw him and are able to outpace your opponent. These things are still 1 health and 2 cost.
As far as the Jedi comment, I was talking about the art. I said that. Because if you haven't noticed, usually even in Jedi events and enhancements there is a picture of a Jedi. I never said anything about there not being Jedi units. Maybe it was just a coincidence that you made a Jedi comment that followed your reply to my post and said "and". I don't know, maybe you didn't really read my post.
Anyway, I'm not really excited about this Scum pod nor do I think it's a viable two of unless we get a lot more units like new Boba that can one shot objectives and just try to not defend at all and pray for corrupt official mitigation.
