Lando Calrissian

His set does have a resource but both Trust Me and Questionable Contacts just couldn't keep up with the power curve. Both sets suffer from a poor pip count and the low health on all of the units across both sets is a major sticking point. Here's what I'd do to fix them:

 

Trust Me - Give Lando an additional pip, health and white bomb (1 resource on the unit optional). Saboteur would get another health as well. Then either the chud or event would get a pip to bring the total up to 8.

 

Questionable - I'd give the Smuggler an extra pip and health. I'd also give Crossfire another pip (I think Swindled is the better choice but Swindled is also in another pod). You can argue that Han is "balanced" around 2 health with his ability and black tactic but unfortunately if you don't win edge with him he's dead (and this is compounded with the pod itself being low edge) so he needs another health as well (at this point in the meta he's balanced by not being Elite).

The only bad apple in an otherwise very strong objective set.

I hate the objective.

 

That being said, if this card got replaced with a better resource then this set would be an automatic 2-of. Running it as a 2-of is difficult though; finding other pods with resources that can fill out your deck is tricky and as a personal rule I want to have four 1-cost enhancements that Luke can use to double strike. 

 

Here's a write-up to a deck that has all of that though:

I much prefer this Leia to the GA one.

This objective set is for me a top 10 from the Rebels faction.  I've fit it in to many decks due to its 8 force pips, Twist, and blast (yeah it's only 2 white blast but that can be pretty impactful).

An awesome defensive ability, but there is so much I want/need him for already: attacking with his two blast, using his resource, and removing damage/placing shield.  Works good with focus removal effects, Core Leia, and Concentrated Firepower.  But exhausted units is the name of the game for this objective set.

It would certainly be better if it could capture a 2-cost unit, but the set would still not likely see play.

I've never understood: Why is this not a unique card? There's only ONE Valley of the Jedi.

A very strong fate card.

Actually quite a strong set.

The whole pod is pretty poor. Dengar was done better in Heartless Tactics.

 

This unit might be good if it could capture a 2-cost or lower unit,

Wouldn't really be very good even if it cost 2.

A poor chud, and (no offense to the artist) the picture looks like a hasty photoshop job.

The way I define meta is "is it worth considering in a competitive deck"? Doesn't have to be like May the Force Be With You or the aforementioned Emperor's Web, but if it can hold itself in a tournament-level deck, I consider it to be meta.

I like this picture much better than the Core set Luke.

You don't like the big lips Luke?

It takes some work but it can be an extremely powerful card, especially against Sith and Scum (not so much against Navy).

Really the only S&S objective in all of Imperial Entanglements that I run, which is a low down dirty shame since this was their box.

I don't find him situational at all, and as long as you have resources he can have a significant impact on the board on every turn (LS and DS).  He can use his ability even when focused down, which I always rate highly.  Putting him into an engagement is something I typically avoid, unless the DS has no defenders, I can push one out, or I'm certain to win edge, as he is just so vulnerable with the two health.  (It is kinda fun for him to push himself out of an engagement, however).

 

Now if his set had a resource to help fuel his ability, he would really come into his own.

A high variance card, if it had another 2 force pips I would really love it, as many times holding on to it in your hand until just the right time is not a good idea, and the extra pips would make the whole objective set not as big a drag on the edge battle effectiveness.  You also have to be sitting on 2 resources, with one a S&S. . .

 

(Also, is S&S the faction with the lowest force icons?  Seems to be to me).
