Zach Bunn – Team Covenant
  • I am a huge fan of Ahsoka Tano, so I have been looking for a way to get her on the table since she was released. Over the weekend, I streamed a handful of games playing Elite Ahsoka and Elite Yoda at the monthly […]

    • Great write up and video Zach. I somehow missed this, but will be passing this to any friend I invite to come to draft with me in my local store.

  • Whether it was opening my first pack of Pokemon TCG cards or seeing Star Wars TCG cards on the table for the first time, there is something truly special about finding ‘your’ new game. For what seemed like months, […]

  • I was at the Fantasy Flight Games GAMA panel earlier today when the fifth set of Star Wars: Destiny was announced. After squirming through the rest of the presentation live streaming from my phone, I finally got […]

    • I really like the “spot X character” mechanic, that’s a exciting place to take some of these cards in the game. I also enjoy how the cards are becoming a little beefier for less cost. Bo-Katan’s ability is a really interesting space to explore as well…we had Finn with it of course but her die is so good and at rare will be pretty easy to acquire too. Overall, I’m really excited for this set and what it’s going to bring to the game.

      • Bo’s die is pretty rocking as well – of everything we’ve seen in the preview, she is the first character I would explore right out of the gate. You can pair her with another ranged hero and go all blasters, or with a melee hero and go all sticks.

        And because of her ability, you should have better upgrades than other decks.

      • Not sure that she is 20pts worth of character though. We will see!

        Maybe eBo, and Yoda?

      • Calling out specific characters really let’s them explore some fascinating territory. Cannot wait to see where this game goes!

    • Not to pile on, but the character-specific cards in Destiny are so clutch because of exactly what you say here, Zach: They work with all cards, but are BETTER with the character specified. I distinctly remember the Decipher CCG having stronger restrictions on character equipment and weapons (i.e. Vader’s Lightsaber could only be deployed on Vader). It works thematically, but it also serves to create dead cards in your collection. This system allows you to use powerful cards from the jump, but then work to get the matching character to make them even better (if you so choose). FFG is definitely doing right with this game….looking forward to getting some more previews about what is to come.

      Awesome write-up!

    • This doesn’t have to do with Ways of the Force (but is relevant for ‘future products’)
      What if either FFG or a third party (@ y’all Team Covenant) sold Decks (characters+fitting battlefield+ 32 or so cards leaving some room for customization) that were specific to a story arc in the SW universe? Like a Rebels deck, with Hera and another member of the Ghost crew, The Ghost, Chopper, some events that show depictions of Rebels scenes ETC. Idk, just a thought. I play casual and I only have limited purchasing power. This would be a fun way to not go broke scavenging for cards, but also not tracking down singles online.

      • I feel like quite the fool BC this is essentially what Starter Sets are. But you get the gist. Be more Refined, so instead of having cards like Bamboozle and Maz’s vault in the Luke Starter Set, having something related to the OT and such

        • There is definitely some really interesting territory here though! I have been thinking a lot about story telling and campaign play lately. I would love to see FFG dive further into both.

      • That would be cool! I love “theme” decks! Maze + Chirrut + all their cool weapons vs. a hoard of Death Troopers, for example. Or Jyn + Cassian vs. Director Krennic and…another hoard of Death Troopers! Mace Windu vs Palpatine/Darth Sidious with Conflicted Anakin off to the side. Roll a d6 at the beginning of every round to see which side he chooses…There are all sorts of decks you could build that aren’t competitive tier 1 decks–maybe not even tier 3 decks–but they sure are fun!

      Played first game with this Adam deck v Weyland deck from this page.
      The corp got totally hammered…8:0. Have you played these two together?
      We we will have another try..maybe just crazy luck/bad luck combo..
      Congratulations on you superb videos.

      • Adam can put insane pressure on upfront, and Corp is pretty hard to play when you are learning. Weyland needs to protect their centrals and use Hunter Seeker to create scoring windows by trashing breakers.

        Snare! and Punitive Counterstrike are also very powerful cards against Adam, who tends to be pretty reckless. If that’s the angle, consider Hunter Seeker on Brain Chip. Remember that you can setup Punitive Counterstrike, Archived Memories, Punitive Counterstrike – getting more money than Adam is not terribly difficult so you can pull this off.

        Luckily Employee Strike doesn’t hit Skorpios very hard. Ultimately, Weyland needs to keep Adam poor and then find those scoring windows from lack of money to attack OR trashed programs. If you can land an Archer, you have a huge opportunity. Good luck ever breaking that with Mimic.

        You’ll generally be scoring points via Trick of Light or by installing right after a Hunter Seeker on whatever program Adam needs to hit the remote.

    • Err the dynasty deck is also referred to as the conflict deck and the dynasty deck is missing a card. This isn’t meant to be just a negative comment though, just trying t give some feed back! Thanks for all the articles and videos you’ve made, they have been very helpful.

      • The deck list has been corrected, but I do not see anywhere that the dynasty and conflict deck are mis-referenced!

        • I think he is referring to the title of each deck in this section. They are both listed as Conflict and not one as Conflict and the other as Dynasty.

    • Hey guys. I was hoping that y’all would cover the seeker and keeper aspect of each deck. Could yall show use some strategy and their use. Thanks
