With the bulk of the regionals season behind us, we’re at a good point to evaluate the Across the Galaxy Meta. The last meta to include the Awakenings block, we’ve seen some serious abuse of some of the most busted cards to come out of the first few sets. From Friends in High Places, to Price of Failure, to Hyperspace Jump and Retreat – a number of cards have gone out with a bang. Not to mention the introduction of new meta defining cards like Vader’s Fist and Armored Reinforcement. While the meta hasn’t settled completely, I think we have a pretty good idea of what the meta is and what you should expect to see at the top tables. As I see it, there are two decks that have separated themselves from the field, one archetype poised to threaten the top decks, and a plethora of archetypes that have seen success but aren’t quite strong enough to garner Tier 1 status.
Today’s post is a tournament report by Russell Lindberg, who was the finalist at the North Carolina Regional. The deck he played – Yoda/Han – is one I’ve thought could be great ever since the announcement of the new Han. I haven’t had much chance to try the deck myself, so I was excited when he decided to play the deck, and especially excited to see him perform so well! I hope you enjoy his tournament report.
This past weekend was the first set of Regionals in the ATG meta post Snoke and OTK nerf, and the meta was wide open. We saw all sorts of different decks make top cuts, and a variety of characters were represented. The Destiny Council participated in the Fargo regional (which Andrew won!), and it was a blast to see such a variety of decks perform well. Here is a summary of my thoughts from the Regionals results this weekend (results can be found at I Rebel Destiny).
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.
