Today’s article comes to you from Rami Chehouri, Destiny Council member and a key part of our core test group. He piloted Han Droids to a Top 64 finish at Worlds, where he was knocked out by Mike Gemme. Read on for his recounting of the action!
First and foremost, I want to congratulate my teammate Andrew on his worlds win. He’s a really talented player, and he constantly makes you consider scraping your deck after testing against him. Andrew and I were pretty set on chopper weeks before worlds. I dabbled with Reylo and 4LOM a bit but both felt underwhelming. We had a prime the weekend before and decided to just play Reylo to keep the list off streams. Of course Andrew took me out in the cut of the prime. Luke’s Han deck had started coming to form a couple weeks before worlds and after the prime win, I wanted to explore it further. After some testing games, I decided I wanted to play Han. Partly because the Reylo matchup felt much easier than with chopper. Roy Wilkins Auditorium is only about 2 miles from my house, so I was able to grab a Lime and scooter back and forth.
