After all of the rebalancing everyone has been left guessing what to play. Palp got hit, Palp’s friend got hit(Watto), and hero mill got hit(No Answer). Standard now becomes one of the most intriguing formats of Destiny, if it wasn’t already. Going forward Vader is one character I feel is worth revisiting. Vader has been asleep way too long. Red Vader has already started making names for himself in an infinite GQ and now is the time to let him loose in standard. Choosing between FOST and battle droid is personal preference. FOST has the better die but Battle Droid allows for Retribution. I personally like battle droid, but I’ll let you decide.

A part of deck building and theory crafting is trying to find ways to gain advantages over your opponent. Hand advantage, though less important in Destiny than in some other games (due to drawing back your hand each round), is one possible area to exploit when considering possible combinations of characters and cards. An easy example of a character who gained you hand advantage was the original Darth Vader, whose ability essentially gained you a 20% card advantage over the opponent each round (5 vs 4 cards). The advantage this presents is subtle but important – more cards means you have a better chance of maximizing your round than your opponent does. So in today’s addition of Magnuson Madness, I’ll be looking at a combination that maximizes card advantage – Dooku3 + Separatist Conspiracy.
Today I’m going to be taking a look at the sorry state of Aphra. I’m not a statistics person, so I don’t often follow all the meta results looking for which deck is doing best and such. With that said take the following with a grain of salt, it appears that Aphra lists are overall underperforming in the current meta. I believe I know why. It all stems from the fact that the most common Aphra list, Grievous Sentinel Aphra, is the wrong Aphra deck to run. Why is that? And what should we run instead? Keep reading to find out.
