I recently took a pretty bizzare deck to a 33 player Dallas Store Championship and finished 5-0 in Swiss! I lost in the top 4 to my brother Tim, who was using his Unkar + 9's deck.
Early on, this deck plays similar to a standard 9’s deck. You play weapons on 9’s and squeeze out as much value as you can. By the mid to late game, your opponent’s will start to see a big difference! Instead of a relatively weak Unkar remaining once 9’s is defeated, you have a threatening Knight of Ren.
The deck centers around a key concept, which is to get as much value out of it’s upgrades as possible. You get a lot of added value from redeploy, but even more fuel is added to the fire with Price of Failure and The Best Defense. Stacking upgrades on 9’s serves to mark him as your opponents primary target. As he gets closer and closer to defeat, playing The Price Of Failure or The Best Defense on 9’s to force an early redeploy and ready Kylo or remove two enemy dice can swing games. Because the deck nearly forces your opponent to attack 9’s first, this all but guarantees that your Stormtrooper will also be available for Price of Failure and The Best Defense.
The deck has several plays that create game ending turns, so keep your eyes open. Even when you don’t hit these game ending turns though, the deck tends to be ahead going into the late game. I find it common to either blow an opponent out or have a one on one situation with Kylo and one of their characters. Thanks to redeploy, this is usually a very advantageous position to find yourself in with a stack of powerful upgrades on Kylo.
All in all, I was very happy with this deck. Not only was it supremely fun, it was a very strong deck that can win when opponent least expects it. If you are tired of your current decks and are looking for a way to freshen things up before the release of Empire at War, I highly recommend looking at switching out your characters!
