If Tarkin blanks Energy spider at the beginning of deployment, can you place Hate on the Energy Spider?

And even if the Spiders were Characters and you could do it, Hate would still fall off at the beginning of the next phase, because the "no enhancements" text would turn back on.

If you have a spare resource you can blank them at the beginning of the refresh phase allowing them to refresh, you'll even get the resource right back. Might not be the best use of Tarkins ability for the turn but it's an option.

It really depends on what you plan to do your own turn.  If there aren't any other decent targets for Tarkin, there are worse things you could use him for than freeing up a unit with 2 black guns, 2 black blast and 4 health to attack.

It's a moot point, but the "no enhancements" wouldn't turn back on. It's a keyword, not a trait, and thus remains blanked by Hate.

I don't think it's a bad play at all. Being able to refresh all those black icons would be good. I've noticed that I use Tarkin sparingly on my turn unless they have a bunch of good enhancements I want to deal with so using it to refresh doesn't seem so bad.

I've been toying with the idea of using Tarkin along side this set to mitigate the downside of the spiders. The problem is that you can't play Tarkin alongside Xizor.

Use Tarkin to blank the "Navy Only" text on Tarkin Doctrine. 

 

Problem solved :P
