Early results from the Way of the Force meta are in, and it appears we are living in a 3-wide meta – 12 of the top 16 decks from UK Nationals last weekend were 3-wides, leaving no doubt that wider decks have taken over the meta. This leaves effects that trigger after character deaths in a great spot. Previous cards like Aftermath and Bala-Tik should pick up more value in this meta, and I expect them to start to see more play. But there’s an additional card that triggers after death, one that more recently came onto the destiny scene – the Executioner. The Executioner has been overlooked thus far, seen as a pretty average non-unique character, similar to a FOST but costing 1 additional point. But with the meta in 3-wide mode, the Executioner suddenly becomes a lot more spicy, with opportunities for multiple procs of the passive in a game. As such, we’ve been exploring some builds including Executioners in the lead-up to NOVA, and are excited to share them with you. Hope you enjoy!
