Worlds 2019, was quite memorable. But possibly for none of the expected reasons.
I’d been planning on Chopper for quite some time leading up to the event, basically since popular opinion had said Satine was the better yellow (gotta stick up for my main man). Played three pods, to 8-1 overall, which felt decent. My one loss was to the legendary Cuenca delving a Fist turn 1. But I also had a scare vs the standard Reylo matchup, (which was harrowingly close) and it pushed me to reconsider the blue titan.
Rolled in Thursday with the intent of finalizing my Reylo list. Played one pod, had a matchup vs the 8-0 Hunter on Aphra, and he literally dropped BT, Trip 0, AND Megablasters, turn 1.
Let’s just say, that’s the game that I won.
The other two matchups I got smoked. Turns out Delve Fist turn 1 is good and Rey’s special is removable. Who knew. :’) At this point, I was officially off Reylo and on something that could beat Delve Fist.
Re-enter the master of versatility himself, C-C-C-C-Chopper. This little guy is Jango Fett, if Jango Fett could recur stuff, namely melee Dh-17’s, hello Grappling arm, and another card that’s arguably better. He also comes with Easy Pickings and Flee the Scene. Oh yeah. The fact that your opponents often shouldn’t target him first, is icing on the cake and also hilarious, in an evil master of villainy kind of way.
