Since then, support decks have continued to sprinkle in powerful upgrades (like Handheld Cannon), understanding that the more above the curve cards you can include in your deck, the better. As I’ve been theory crafting Convergence, I’ve noticed that my Middle/Middle decks have trended in a similar direction – they all seemed to be including Megablaster Troopers.

The following are 3 examples of how this can be done.
