Commentary from... Heifinator

I find the balance of action cheat, aggro, control, and survivability to be as good as you can get in Destiny. When putting it together the thought was to ensure that I had an answer to everything.

My favorite thing about the deck is that I never feel helpless, there is always an answer and I almost always have it in hand or some way to grab it in a couple actions.

Card Selection

Bowcaster - Redeploy, enough said. Before Rey eats it you should fish for this to replace her vibroknife.

DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol - Ambush & the dice removal makes this card amazing especially with Starship Graveyard - Jakku. I can't tell you how many games I've replaced a holdout blaster or a DL-44 with another DL-44, gained 2 actions, a shield, and removed a dice over and over and over again. Really annoying for the opponent.

Fast Hands - Nothing to be said. First action Han roll with an immediate 3 damage or 2 disrupt is painful.

[Force Illusion] - I only play one of these which I get some criticism for. My logic is that you will need this on turn 2-3 ideally. This deck cycles your entire hand most early turns which means you are already half way through your deck, by this point I either have drawn the card or have a caution / hold on to buy myself another turn. Only a couple games have I wished I had 2 of these. Really great way to extend rey's life, especially with good use of the battlefield.

Holdout Blaster - Again redeploy and ambush.

Second Chance - The king of the deck, using this in conjunction with hans ability and the graveyard makes a very hard to kill character.

Vibroknife - Ambush 2 cost, yes please.

Caution - I only run one of these as I rarely want to eat a dice for shields but it is a good way to buy a character another roll out.

Destiny - What an awesome card. Criminally underplayed IMO. Rey's dice suck, lets be honest. This just adds some value to her dice. Dropping a vibro or holdout blaster for free and netting 2 actions + 1 shield is crazy good.

Disarm - Playing against FN, hard mulligan for this bad boy. I am considering adding a second, so good on the rey +2 damage side.

Friends in Low Places - Anti-control, this deck has a hard time with mill or palpatine, this card helps a lot.

High Ground - Adding just a little more removal to the deck.

Hold On! - Previously a defensive staple in this deck - noving shields from Han to Rrey and then gaining another shield, solid card. (Removed in favor of High Ground)

Loth-Cat and Mouse - The best control card in the deck imo. I usually get han on the table quickly, I am either happy with the roll and fast hands it off, or am unhappy and loth to control the board a bit. Again, attrition!

Negotiate - If I am against palpatine I hard mulligan for this card. Great way to mess up palpatine on turn 1.

Overconfidence - As much as I love this card, it isn't great in this deck. I get use out of it but this would be my first card to go.

Riposte - A closer, typically it ends up getting used to finish off a character. Really solid way to add damage to a deck that doesn't have a lot.

Unpredictable - What a nasty card, underloved IMO. Love to use it off a rey double action to get the roll fixed up before resolving. Plus a shield. Worst case you toss to re-roll.

[Force Speed] - Heifinator doesn't play this upgrade. He says, "I found that I didn't need it. With the battlefield being mine half the time, coupled with all the ambush cards and rey I just really didn't ever feel hurt on action cheap potential. That being said I probably didn't give it a fair shot either. I can see where in some games it could be really helpful. If I ran speed I would get rid of Guard and Deflect." So... I (Billeddy), dropped those two cards in favor of the two 'Force Speed'.

How to Win (Matchups)...

[vs. Poe Maz]: Not too bad of a match up. This deck is nice and fast and can claim with the best of them. Keep the first action as long as possible and keep trying to smack poe for 3 at least each turn. If poe has 6-8 damage on him when Rey goes down you are going to win. Look for shields against this deck. My favorite round 1 is destiny into vibro on rey, 2 actions roll han, resolve something. Caution shields onto rey then have a loth or disarm ready to throw away a fast hands.

[vs. FN Decks]: Always a difficult match, FN is so good.... Do whatever you can to disrupt resources and keep him poor. Find fast hands and disarm if you can. Disarm a 2 cost upgrade off FN and then fast hands on han. Keep the battlefield, you want to instant roll han on action 1 and disrupt 2. Even if it only happens once or twice a game that really hurts for FN. Keep the dice count under control. Eat FN asap.

[vs. Baze Decks]: Easy, shields win, kill baze, be disciplined on damage. If baze does 6 and you do 3 you will win eventually. Once baze is dead its over.

[vs. Mill Decks]: Just slow down and use upgrades.

[vs. Emo Kids]: Don't sit on bowcaster, DL, or Second Chance. Use them for re-rolls or get them on the table. You don't have a lot of expensive cards so it is pretty easy to manage. Vaders ability actually helps you which is funny. 3 for 1 is a GREAT trade with this deck. We generate shields and have second chance, they don't. Blow up vader, don't leave strong dice on the table and enjoy.

(Heifinator's) Final Comments... Remember there are almost no bad roll with this deck, which is where the crazy consistency comes in. The mentality playing the deck needs to be go with the rolls. Obviously you need to make key decisions based on the decks your playing against but the dice are easy. Don't reroll much. Almost everything can be worked with to your benefit. Use bad rolls for Loth, negotiate, disarm, guard. Gladly take 3-4 resources if you can get them and drop a big upgrade next round. Disrupt or discard if you get it, and when you finally see those blaster symbols don't hesitate to pop them quick.

  • Claim, leave dice on the table, this deck is all about staying in front of the action. I hate dice, I hate RNG and because of that I love [Han-Rey]

My Personal Note: I greatly respect Heifinator's advice and I wanted to use 'Force Speed,' so I took his advice as to what cards should be removed in order to make room for it.

Thanks again, to Heifinator and to any commentators for any advice that you will give.

Hey nice list!

I actually have over the last couple days toyed around with adding force speed as well.

I also took out the Hold On! x2 and replaced them with another Negotiate and a High Ground.

Good luck to ya, stick with it as it takes a while to get the deck learned!
