While Yoda Cassian quickly popped up as an extremely fast mill deck, it took time for people to consider the fact that it could also deal damage. We’ve been keeping this deck in the background for awhile now, as the Council was considering bringing it to Gen Con. And indeed, Will, Andrew, and Brian all brought Yoda Cassian damage, even Brian’s brother Russel brought the deck. Andrew and Brian both made top 16, while Will and Russel ended day one at 5-3, narrowly missing the 6-2 cut. So what is it that made us want to play the deck? Let’s find out.
Snoke has certainly been taking the destiny world by storm. His versatility and consistency have made him a desirable deck building tool. He can generate resources, push for extra damage, and help focus to the sides you desire. While he didn’t see much success at Gen Con, he’s still likely a tier one character. So today I’ll be giving you all a look at a couple decks that I’ve really been enjoying. Both use the combination of Snoke and Mother Talzin, who work quite well together.
A new set has released, and with its arrival comes a multitude of new deck combinations we’re going to have to try. Rex is definitely one of the more intriguing characters of the set, with his ability to secure the battlefield repeatedly. Thus today, we’re going to start with what I call Driver’s Ed, a deck in which Rex puts up with Ezra’s shenanigans as he attempts to teach him how to properly drive vehicles. We’re running eRex, Clone Trooper, and Blue Ezra.
