Cruel Interrogations

starhawk77 is discussing the card "Interrogation", not this particular card.

One of the cards text is that: event cards do not affect it.

 

If your enemy plays A New Hope would this card count towards one of the three units you pick or would it be exempt from the card effects overall because of the above text?

you must read the card text exactly for rules to make sense.   "this unit cannot be TARGETED by enemy events"     So it is immune to EVENTS that TARGET something.

 

Ion cannon blast for instance reads "Action: A target Vehicle or Droid unit cannot be declared as an attacker or defender until the end of the phase."   so this actually TARGETS something, and its an event, so the DSSD would be immune to it.

 

A New Hope, as you asked about reads: "Action: Each player chooses up to 3 units he controls. Return all units not chosen to their owners' hands."  This is an event, but it doesn't specifically TARGET anything, so the DSSD is not immune to this cards effects.

It can't be targeted by enemy events. Since A New Hope doesn't target anything (it's the DS player who chooses which 3 will not be destroyed) then Death Squadron Star Destroyer will count as one of your 3.

Remote Hideout

If DS gets more cards with a strong "when this unit comes into play" or "after you play this unit" effect, then it might be an ok resource. It reminds me of Flea Bottom in AGoT. Use it to put in your Newly Made Lord or Flea Bottom Scavenger in play, get the great effect, and then anything after is gravy on top.

Even then, though the unit that comes into play isn't "played" so the unit that you play after that is still the first one played that round and gets the focus. There are a lot of hoops to jump through to make this card work.

 

EDIT: Okay, I think I misread your statement. If there are stronger "when this unit enters play" effects, you would still get a solid benefit from playing the unit even if it were exhausted upon entering play. At the moment, we've got Bossk's ability, but since he has to be focused to use it, Remote Hideout shuts him down unless you can get a Jawa or something out first.

 

Oh man, this could really bite my Tri-faction TIE deck. If you play "Backstabber" on your opponent's turn, it enters play with a focus token. It would still use its ability, but you wouldn't be able to strike with it unless you had Tallon Roll ready or something.

I like to use this in conjunction with Aqualish Thugs.

It works because generally you always have multiple jawas out, so you can attack with one, force him to defend, lose the edge and both return to your hand allowing you to utilize remote hideout each turn

So is Boba any better now that there are more 3 damage capacity LS units running around? I feel like it's hard sometimes to deal enough damage to take them out in one hit, especially with the prevalence of shields, but Fett can capture these guys in one hit.
 
Man, if only we had an event that searched your deck for a Scum enhancement. I would play Boba Fett if we had that so we could more reliably get him his Mandalorian Armor.


I don't think so. At 3 cost or 3 health, I think he'd see play all day, but he's really edge reliant. Then his objective and the event are pretty bad. The chud is really.... Meh. The blaster and armor are both decent or good but not enough to include the set IMO.

Could this set get better at some point? Possibly, but we've been saying that for years now, and also, depending on your level of competitiveness, including him and his set are still just gimmping your deck.

Sweeeeet. Comes with Utinni, and 6 Health. I'm liking it.

I would say he reacts to each one, as the card reads "After a fate card is revealed in an edge stack" and not "After 1 or more fate cards are revealed in an edge stack".

So if you put 3 fate cards in the edge stack, does Crix react to each one? Or does he only react to the one reveal since it is only one stack?

I've been having fairly good success mixing Boba in to my ho-hum Emperor-Vader Sith decks.  He's actually quite good at clearing protectors, which are fairly common in Jedi and Smuggler decks.

 

Plus, the other cards in his set (Armor and Blaster) work really well on Royal Guards, if you don't have Boba out when you draw them, and his focus-clearing event couples nicely with big Sith events if the right situation presents itself.

Yeah. My brother was telling me about a deck he saw on Monday that used Remote Outpost with Jawas and he just kept cycling them back to hand by losing edge. It didn't sound like a good tactic (loosing edge, I mean), but evidently the Scum player completely shut down his opponent.

If I replace this during refresh, I would then be able to execute the ability since it says the reaction is after refresh. Right?

When i have used this set i generally will use it along side jawas so i can put them in for free and they take the focus, but this set is just another in a long line of scum sets that has a lot of issues.  this enhancement is bad, the chuds are too expensive.   4 cost is too much for dengar at his base stats and it takes too many hoops to jump through to get him worth even deploying.  The objective's abil;ity is really bad, i mean it takes a captive just to get an extra resource so it equals other 5/2's that need no captives and if you put too many focus on it, you'll never use it again for the game and your opponent will likely just leave it on the board to choke you of resources.  I just shake my head at FFG's designs for many of scum's early, and even some newer sets (Hello Wittin....)

play and put into play are two different rules.   This card says to play, so yes you have to pay for it.
