There's a lot to love about these two...but what we love most has nothing to do with Kylo's mediocre dice or the big three damage sides on young Vader...it has everything to do with their zeros.
And, if you're like me, you roll blanks. LIKE A CHAMP. Like it's your job. If this game had a mechanic that rewarded blank rolls, you would be the one getting the glory.
So why fight it? The design of this deck is such that it's intended to reward your blanks, not fight them. Rather than being a thorn in your side, each blank in this deck should instead be seen as an opportunity. You've got Meditate whose sole purpose in this deck is to turn a blank into either 3 damage from a Vader special or as much as 5 from a Kylo special.
Datapad is basically meditate with a die. Oh yeah, and it's got two blanks. Who loves you? Data pad loves you.
Did you just roll two blanks at once? Time to party! Toss down an Anger to resolve a 3 damage Vader, Luke, Obi, Palp or Poe (and many more!) die as if it were yours AND get that die out of the pool. Then meditate into a special.
Did you actually roll all "good" sides? NONSENSE. How can you go a turn without a blank? Answer: you can't. Manipulate an opponent's die into a blank and turn one of yours with it. Boom, now you're set up for more meditate synergy. Also, time to Feel Your Anger and use that lovely blank on their side to remove more dice.
"But fella, I know how to roll well and don't need stupid gimmicks to get my dice to show good sides".
Thanks for the input, Jack. Then throw down your Sith Holocron, Super-Sayin roll your way into two Mind Probes and force speed-mind probe into ten damage in one action. You can have your cake AND eat it.
Also, there's a Vibroknife in here. Because shields.
And Emperor's Throne Room - Death Star II is here because it's scary. Don't worry, you're literally never going to win an initiative roll. Make peace with it. This is about the blanks. Just embrace the chaos. We want them to take their battlefield so that you can put two shields on Vader and not feel the heat from his first two Specials.
And if they don't...then guess what just happened? You've got another blank you can turn into a special. It's like Easter and Chinese New Year had a baby with the Ghost of Christmas Past, and then threw a party for it (no RSVP required).
So have fun, but most importantly, keep rolling blanks.
