"discard 1 card at random"

 

Nope, you don't see anything but the discarded card.

The wording implies that you (the DS player) picks the card to be discarded, correct? So basically, you're also peaking at his hand as well as choosing something to discard AND potentially stealing an enhancement?

You might be interested in Kiramode's discussion of the Cracken deck he used to win an online tournament, which you can find at http://www.cardgamed...n-deck-write-up. You can see the finals match at http://www.cardgamed...-est/?p=245881.

Many more recent Cracken decks incorporate Feigning Captivity, which has several ways to capture cards and a strong main. For a discussion of a deck that helped CCBPE win the New York regional, see http://www.cardgamed...egional-results.

Does that help?

I see a lot of people saying he's good but how does someone effectively use this set?

Resolving edge in the rulebook:
 
After resolving fate cards, each player counts the number of Force icons on cards in his edge stack. The player with the higher total wins the edge battle and has the edge for the remainder of the engagement. In the event of a tie, the edge goes to the defending player. 
 
Each player then discards the cards he placed into his edge stack.
 
The winner of edge battle is determined before you discard edge stack.

"The player with the higher total (force icons) wins the edge battle and has the edge [...].

Each player THEN discards the cards he placed into his edge stack". Pg. 20 from the Rulebook.

 

So as I understand, you can't use Out of the Mists to retrieve a unit you just discarded for edge.

You win edge --> you react with the objective --> you discard.

Does this effect take place after you discard your edge stack? Can I pitch a unit to the edge and then put it into play after if I win?

No, you can't pay costs with game elements not under your control. If an Endor mission is played against you, then you can use it, since it is considered to be a DS objective.

Are you allowed to focus an opponant's Endor objective or enhancement with this ability?

This card?  Probably still not worth it.  This set?  Intriguing, but probably still not a great choice.

So, has anyone tried combining this with Maw of Madness yet? Looks like there could be a good Dark Side discard deck.

 

3 cost, focus to use, AND only usable during force phase makes this card way bad.   Its such a huge tempo hit that it is almost never worth playing and when it is, its because your so far ahead  that its just a "win more" card.  terrible card...

Drat! Thanks for pointing that out.

Journey to Dagobah is Jedi only, so you can't play it together with False Report :x

The False Report

May 24 2016 12:15 PM by Thaliak

The closest I can think of is A Journey to Dagobah, which replaces itself with an objective of your choice when it is destroyed.

If Trust Me only has two health remaining, you can destroy it during your opponent's turn by playing an event and using the reaction to cancel the event. But as usual, you'll have to wait until your refresh phase to place the new objective.

Similarly, you can destroy your Endor objectives with the action on the SpecForce Pathfinder and your Hoth objectives with Snowspeeder Counterattack or Battle of Hoth.

Other than having an objective destroyed and then replacing it during the Refresh phase, is there any way in the game right now to destroy and/or replace your own objective?

Can Brainiac affect fate cards attached to Piett?

Outside decreasing numerals on the respective cards, not really.

No. Cracken's bonus blast damage is recalculated constantly, so if you change the currently engaged objective to one that has no captured cards or fewer captured cards, he will lose all or part of his blast damage.

Han Solo

Nope. Cracken's is a continuous check against the engaged objective, and Han changes which objective you are enganging, so if you move against an objective without captured cards, Cracken will have zero blast icons.
