In this weeks episode, Luke and Jon talk about their experience at a 24 person tournament last week. Poe2/eKit Fisto + Armored Reinforcement – did Jon really bring this deck? Listen to find out why it worked pretty well!
Today’s post is a guest article by Michael Spaulding. Michael is a Minnesota local who does a lot for the Destiny community here. He helps run the Twin Suns Cup – a local tournament circuit. He recently won one of these tournaments with a version of the Shadow Caster reset deck, beating both Luke and Jon on his way to the title! It’s a deck reminiscent of the 7th Sister reset decks from back in the Legacies meta, and I think you’ll enjoy his tournament report.
After a few weeks, one podcast we failed to post, and one new house, we’re back! This week we’re talking about how we would approach beating Thrawn/Snoke. Hope you enjoy!
The introduction of Across the Galaxy has seen all sorts of wildness enter the game. Double Down, -1 plots, Vader, and all sorts of pushed characters. Much of this wildness has been good and exciting, and I have loved playing ATG. But, a negative aspect of this wildness has been the introduction of more OTK decks – decks that seek to kill you in one round by drawing their whole deck and abusing a few cards. No one likes these decks (they’re awful to play against), and I am confident that some errata attempting to curve these decks will come – but FFG is notoriously slow at putting out errata, so it’s tough to be sure when changes might come. So, in the mean time, I consider it my public duty to help keep these decks off the table. Today’s article will look at some decks that I think can beat these OTK decks, hopefully giving those of you with an early Regional or GQ some ideas as you prepare. (Full disclosure: I have not tested extensively against the new OTK decks, so take this advice with a grain of salt. However, these decks are where I would start if I was preparing for a Regional in the next few weeks, and I think this is a good place to start if you’re looking for ways to beat OTK decks.)
Across the Galaxy has given us quite the crop of new plots to experiment with. So far, the majority of the attention has gone to Double Down and the -1 plots, and rightly so – these plots expand our options tremendously! In the hype over these crazy plots, a potentially excellent plot that has been left behind – Armored Reinforcement (though, to be fair, it has started to get some love since I started writing this post!). In today’s post, I’m going to talk about Armored Reinforcement, and what vehicles might be worth tutoring in at the beginning of the game.
