Brian (Obi Maz) vs Andrew (Poe Hondo)
Portland’s regional event was one of the first glimpses we’ve had of the Legacies meta. It’s worth noting that starter set cards were not legal, but the results are still informative. This article will focus on the deck that placed #1, Hondo Poe.
Legacies is in its honeymoon phase, where everyone is messing around trying out new characters, new cards, etc. Plenty of regionals are around the corner and most competitive players are out there searching for the best deck once Legacies becomes tournament legal. So how do we go about finding that best deck? Keep reading to find out.
This past weekend saw what I think (?) was the biggest regional to date with 85 players showing up at FFG’s event center. The Destiny Council spent quite a lot of time preparing for the event, play testing among ourselves and with a couple others (Luke Magnuson, Rami Chehouri, and Gil Nevils). With a week to go we were quite varied in our deck choices, but as we came down to the wire, the most recent iteration of Qui-Gon Kanan was having such success that everyone ended up running it at the regional.
Why was it having success? Well that’s what I hope to tackle in this article.
Today we’re going to take a look at the most consistent character in the game: Mother Talzin.
