Another great episode. I am wondering what you guys think my decks. I am currently playing with these objective sets.

Jedi

Hero's Journey x2
Questionable Contacts x2
In you Must go x2
Message from beyond x2
Forgotten heros x1
Last Minute Rescue x1

for my dark side deck's

Sith

Shadows on the Ice x1
Imperial Command x1
Fall of the Jedi x2
The Emperor's Web x2
The Killing Cold x2
Counsel of the Sith x2

Navy/Vehicel

Imperial Command x1
Death and Despayer x1
Defense Protocol x2
Lord Vadar's Command x2
The Endor Gambit x2
Kuat Reinforcements x2

Those are the decks I am currently running with, still on the fence like you guys about the rebel decks. They do really feel luck based and it very well could be that jedi are needed.
The Sith deck looks great it's nearly identical to what I've been running this week. The only difference being the new Vader pod for a Counsel of the Sith.

The Jedi pod is different from mine in that you've taken out the Guardians but that seems doable now that you have Obi Wan's Spirit. It finally feels like Jedi has options again. How is one copy of Rescue working out for you?

As far as Navy goes, the choices look reasonable but I am not qualified to give a judgment on Navy as I have yet to get them to work for me. But in theory it looks good.
I am thinking of removing rescue and putting in 1 defense. My thoughts where to discard a jedi and play it from the discard pile for less then what it normally costs. With only 1 copy of it in the whole deck honestly I think it was just wishful thinking.

As for the sith deck are you running 2 vadar sets in your deck then?

You reference the mixed Rebel/Jedi deck of our tournament winner and I just wanted to point out that at least in the match I played against him, it was his DS trooper deck that actually won and was dominant.
Maybe in his other matches the deck faired better, but it's important to note that it's technically possible to get through a tournament with only one of the decks winning.

Maybe I was just bitter about the Rebel/Jedi deck he played because it set-up so well for him
This podcast has been up for a day but it's not showing up on iTunes or Android RSS feeds... please check what's up.
I concur with the abvoe statement - the winner of our last turney played just about the standard Sith Control and haven't struggled with that. On the other hand, his LS deck fell short and he won both the semifinals and finals via tiebreaker.

Tiny do you use 2 vadar pods or just out right replace the sith vadar for the navy one?
LOL "Palpatine is a crutch!"
I played for 1st in Regionals, playing 2 sets of The Emperor's Web and never drew an Emperor in 6 games!
