"When you would choose a unit to strike" refers to the timing of the strike; there is no requirement that you have a unit capable of striking in the engagement, as both players have framework-defined times to resolve strikes that don't check whether they have units in the engagement. See the flowchart on p. 31 of the rulebook. 

 

Basically "when you would choose a unit to strike" = "when it would be your turn to strike in an engagement."

I would think so. Can anyone else confirm?

Yes, that satisfies the condition.

Is this card working if you have no defenders?

Not quite. Red 2 refreshes after an objective is destroyed; Boba refreshes immediately after he strikes. The engagement doesn't end as soon as the objective is destroyed; you still have to go through all the steps, including striking with ready units until all units are focused, even after the objective is gone. Red 2 can refresh in some circumstances because he can trigger in a step after the engagement itself is over (check for unopposed); Boba can't.

For that matter, couldn't Boba do the same as Red 2?  If Boba's first attack destroys the objective, and there are no units for him to damage, then there is nothing for him to engage, and he would remain unfocused, yes?  Thanks!

Red 2 can end an engagement unfocused, if the objective he is engaged with is destroyed by unopposed damage.

Red 2 is a similar deal (although it triggers when an objective is destroyed, so he could be in 2 different engagements in one turn if you blow an objective up in between the two)

You have it right: Boba cannot use his Reaction to end an engagement unfocused. If he uses it, he must strike again within the same engagement.

I thought so, thanks for confirming it. I must say, I've seen a lot of people abusing the Fett in the wrong kinda way.

I'm still confused about his reaction. I understand that he can strike twice during an engagement by removing all focus tokens on him. But is it possible for Boba to come out of an engagement unfocussed? On first thought it might be an easy yes but let me explain my confusion.

 

The rulebook states

 

(Page 23): After all units participating in the engagement are exhausted (either by striking, by receiving a focus token during a tactics icon resolution, or by other card effects), the resolve strikes step is over.

 

(page 20 ): If a player has at least one ready participating unit, it must focus to strike.

 

So basically an engagement cannot end until all units involved are exhausted. And I’m assuming that reactions are resolved immediately after the trigger and that the reaction  must be resolved before a new strike, action or phase can begin.

 

Taking that into account, would the following scenario be correct?

  1. Boba is the last (or only) unit to strike in an engagement.
  2. His strike resolves and as a reaction to this resolution he removes all focus.
  3. But now there is still an unfocussed unit in the engagement so the engagement cannot end and Boba is forced to strike again.

So it is my understanding that it is impossible for Boba to come out of an engagement ready to strike again in a different engagement (by using his reaction at least).

Is this logic sound or am I totally missing something?

 

Thanks in advance

No, since it's an interrupt, Sate hasn't made it to the discard yet. Reactions, however, resolve after the triggering condition.

Because it's an Interrupt, Sate's not in your discard pile yet.

If it was a reaction, I think it would be possible.

Seems like a great splash for a deck with 2x The Imperial Bureaucracy (and Palpatine).

Can Sate's interrupt be used to return him to hand, or does the timing not work?

so moldy crow wouldn't work cause of the white blast.

It depends. There is an action window after edge resolves, so you could wait to see if you win edge and then use the ability.

That's right. You could focus Keyan to strike before the edge, but you wouldn't be dealing any damage with Moldy Crow.
