No love, FFG. No love.

 

 

Kind of ridiculous at this point.

I feel for you, but what happens when some 10 year old kid looking for the newest SWLCG spoilers listens to RotC?  Think of the chillrens!

Maybe they'll get the Charizard objective set.

Awesome can't wait for the Zekka spoiler. I've got really high hopes for this pod. Lets hope they don't ruin it with duplicate 3 cost garbage.

So, no pressure or anything, but...you may have just jinxed it.

Lol, it's hard to get too upbeat about scum sets still. Even though we have certainly seen a few good ones, we're still getting some pretty bad ones too.

The set I'm stoked most about is prince xizor's. If he isn't a beast, then I'll quit getting excited at all for new scum sets.

I know what you mean. That Scum set from the Rogue Squadron cycle (Eater of Luck) did not do anything for me. Sure, it has some neat tricks, but I can't see myself putting it in any deck that I really expect to win with. That's how a lot of the Scum sets are shaping up to be.

 

I totally agree with Sellout on the cost issue. A lot of the early objective sets had some interesting ideas, but then put 2x of some 3-cost generic in. It's really hard for Scum to pay for those sorts of cards. Of the Scum sets from the Hoth cycle, the two I use are Jabba's Orders and Lucrative Contract. Both of these sets avoid that unsavory trend because I find it's not hard these days to get the Weequay Elites in for 2, and Twist of Fate in Lucrative Contract is nice.

 

...Back on topic, I'm hoping to get around to the podcast tomorrow!

I am not sure anymore Scum has a cost issue. Toggle's "Dirty Dozen" deck he played at the Winter Kit Tournament on Worlds Weekend works very well with only 3 resources, also using 3 2-resource objectives and Payout. I have won a game with it against Smuggler Jedi without drawing any of the 3 resources. The deck is pretty good at establishing board dominance by playing more and more units, capturing key LS units and defending the prison objective with Corrupt Officials and tactics. It can take down objectives with counterattack quite efficiently, having a really decent amount of blast. Toggle won the tournament with it and I am 3-1 on OCTGN with it, all my games against Smuggler Jedi and Pure Jedi. If this deck gets access to Snoova, I have really high hopes for it.

I am not familiar with this "Dirty Dozen" deck. I've searched for it, but nothing's come up yet. Obviously with Payout it's running The Findsman's Intuition. What else?

 

But I don't mean to say that resources are why Scum can't win, I'm saying that's part of why some sets (like The Hunt for Han Solo and Hunt Them Down) don't see as much play. Because honestly, I believe the Kihraxz-class Assault Fighters could have been a key component to DS decks during the reign of dual Along the Gamor Run decks because they could capture the pesky Hired Hands and prevent C-3PO from recurring. But at 3-cost, they just aren't that economical, in my opinion.

 

Anyway, I finally got around to listening to the podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to more (and not just for the spoilers). Keep up the good work!

I don't know... They seem to be alright giving Netrunner spoilers to casts and websites that also use 'adult language'. What about THOSE cyberpunk 10 year olds? THE HORROR! THE HORROR!

It'd just be nice if we got an email that flat out said, 'no', rather than no email at all.
