This is really powerful card.
This effect is insane for light side.

This effect is insane for light side.

Is it? It seems to be a weaker version of Jedi Mind Trick to me. Though the mind trick is a very powerful card IMO, it has hardly been game changing with all those Vehicle-based Navy decks out there...

That's a fair comparison, but nonetheless the ability to take a unit out of the Conflict phase shouldn't be understated. Mono-Navy decks have seen a significant decline since the introduction of the new affiliation cards so this card can see a lot of mileage and I imagine this pod will see a lot more play than Core Obi as well.
