So I'm planning to go to a Destiny tourney tomorrow and am not sure what I feel like playing.  I have most of the card pool, but not everything. 

 

One thing I have done for quite some time with the Star Wars LCG game and my Yoda's Hut youtube channel is post threads asking for deck ideas, then I pick some decks and record myself playing them.  I thought it might be interesting to try that for my Destiny tourney tomorrow. 

 

Suggest a complete decklist (including battlefield) and I'll pick one to play.  As long as there is enough space, the store holding the tourney should allow me to set up a camera to record my tourney games.  After that, Queklaine and I will do commentary as usual and I'll put the videos up on the Yoda's Hut youtube channel.

 

One thing for people to consider is (as I mentioned before),  I do not have the entire cardpool (although I certainly have enough to make decent decks).  I have entire playsets of commons and uncommons and I have at least 1 of all but 6 cards (5 are legendary). 

 

The cards I do not have any copies of are:

 

Black One

Han Solo

Jabba the Hutt

Kylo's Saber

Thermal Detonator

Survival Gear

 

The cards I only have 1 copy of the following cards are mainly legendaries, but there are a couple rares I only have one of:

 

 

Captain Phasma

AT-ST

Commanding Presence

Darth Vader

Crime Lord

Luke Skywalker

One with the Force

Millennium Falcon

Holdout Blaster

 

 

So if you have some time and feel up to it, suggest a deck using my available card pool and I'll pick one to play tomorrow.   I'm looking to have fun since the store is using the same promos I already won as prizes.

Not getting much love here it seems :).  I just threw this together if you want something I've not suggested before to you.  Every card I list here is a 2of except for hold out and launch bay since you have only 1 blaster.

 

2x leia

2x ackbar

 

echo base

 

launch bay (1x)

scout

promotion

IQA-11 rifle

Hold out blaster (1x)

DH-17 blaster

commlink

 

rearm

logistics

leadership

its a trap

hit and run

field medic

dug in

defensive position

all in

 

plenty of resources with very low costs.  Should be able to play launch bay easily if you draw it.  Depending on if you want to be more defensive, you could swap in dodge or block depending on whats common in your local meta.  Biggest hits should come from using all in with your massive amounts of focus sides and by using its a trap once you have a lot of red dice on the table.  I've never played this deck myself but I've lost to something similar in to different tournaments so far.

I am enjoying EGrevious/Dooku right now.  Not sure if you have the cards to make it.

 

Holocron and blue abilities, and datapad for Dooku.  Generic redeploy lightsabres for Grevious.

 

Almost all blue events. 

 

I find if I can get out an early lightsaber and holocron, i'm well on my way to winning.

I probably have most of that stuff.  I just don't have any of Kylo's saber, but I pretty much would have everything else.  I've tried eGrevious/Dooku some but it seems like nearly everytime I play it, Grevious dies and early death.

Shields.  What about Hidden in Shadow or Dug In.  I have Hidden in Shadow in mine, I get 2 or 3 shields out of it and it helps gain me an extra turn with Greivous.  I was thinking of swapping it out though for Dug In.

One key thing is to run the red upgrade on dooku that gives him guardian to protect grevious.  I think its called personal escort.  I usually hard mulligan to get it because the game is very different if you dont have it.  It takes quite a while to get to grevious if you can protect him with shields and dooku.  My problem is I just cant roll hits with grevious.

Been using Dug In and Personal Escort and Hidden in Shadows.  Gotta draw them though and also need to the battlefield for Dug In.  Maybe I've just had people roll too good against me when I've tried Grevious and Dooku. :)

 

 

Out of curiosity, are people using No Mercy in this type of deck?  I've tried building decks both with No Mercy and without it.  I honestly can't tell if I prefer one over the other.  No Mercy at the right time can really deal a lot of damage, but I also like to use Tactical Mastery along with Dug In and Personal Escort which means 6 cards are Red and can't be used with No Mercy.  If I added in Take Covers to get more potential shields, that would bring it to 8 Red cards and then I'm not sure if No Mercy is worth it.

I use no mercy.  I run 2 copies of datapad, and 2 red events.  The other 26 are all blue.  When you have it, it can be a game changing card.
