Another set, and another round of character rankings! In the Convergence version, I’m going to take a little different tack – grouping the characters together, not only based on how good I think they’ll be but also based on what kind of Destiny character they are. Let’s see how it goes!
Today marks the start of a new series we’ll be doing at the Destiny Council, called Magnuson Madness. Jon and I have garnered a reputation for out of the box deck ideas, some of which have turned out to be successful. We’re going to lean into that reputation in this new series, in which we explore some of our crazy ideas – theory crafting and imagining what might be possible. And who knows, maybe one of them will turn out to be the next Aphra/Executioners.
Though the entirety of Convergence has yet to be spoiled, we’ve seen a number of plots already. If you include Allies of Necessity, we’ve seen a total of 8 plots so far, and 7 of them are in the 2 cost slot. In today’s article, Jon and I are going to evaluate the plots we’ve seen spoiled and grade them on an A-F scale. Hope you enjoy!

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.
