Hello everyone, I just wanted to post my take on #rainbow 5's. It is so solid and I personally like to play more controlled games. I had three cards that i would highly recommend to play are Force Illusion, Bait and Switch and Friends in Low Places. I definitely would change one Flankfor a Feel Your Anger. Just a personal feeling after that day. If you want to know any thing elsw just ask m. :)

has Deflect more relevant than Overconfidence?

Olsen 193

It was relevant in every game expect the Kylo Ren - Tormented Oneand General Grievous - Jedi Hunter one. In the game versus Kanan Jarrus - Rebel Jedi and Qui-Gon Jinn - Ataru Master I deflected two times kanan's gun before I discarded his Force Misdirection. In the top 4 cut I placed against ekylo and baby Vader. In one spot I could deflect a range die of Mind Probe to kill kylo. In the final I used it twice against Captain Phasma - Ruthless Tacticianand Jango Fett - Lethal Mercenary. If the meta is Sabine/Ezra, quigon/kanan, mirror and rey2/poe2 it is never a dead card in this match up.

Is this better than eCad/eCiena? I really like access to all 3 colors and it has 3 more hp and endless dice rerolling. % wise, this deck has more fire power. The only thing cad has is his insane action cheat. I run cad and Ciena but I'm thinking about changing.

Olsen 193

First I haven't seen any ecad/eciena deck in the top of the latest major events. Second I think you got a very good controll suit for #rainbow 5's and sister's ability is just insane. I haven't thought about playing Cad Bane - Vicious Mercenary. I don't like his pay sides either.

If you want to watch a deck very similar to mine. www.twitch.tv It was played by one of the best players in the world honestlysarcastic.

i play this deck with Tie Pilot instead nightsister and i dont bother about removing my guns

Do you get much use out of the X-8 Night Sniper as it does not have Redeploy? I have a similar deck but chose to put in On The Hunt to get rid of those pesky s

Olsen 193

I have three reasons to play Nightsister. First you get access to blue what makes you play awesome cards. Second you have 2 black damage sides which are rare in this deck. And last but not least you have an great ability that can change games. One game I was left with no cards in hand and three +2 sides. I put three damage on here to deal 7 damage kill a character and untap Bala-Tik - Gang Leader to do another 5 damage... GG

Olsen 193

@eckospider X-8 Night Sniper is the best late game card. While testing I found myself often in situations where I had a lot of money. I played Z6 Riot Control Baton first but in the end the free reroll isn't as good as the guaranteed 3 damage side for two dollar.

Olsen 193

@eckospider sorry I just see that you asked a second question. I think if you expect a lot of quigon and r2p2 I would prefer a second Intimidate. I like On The Hunt in the phasma guard build but in my opinion it is too slow for this deck.

Who is the first target playing against this deck? Bala or Nightsister? Leaving either of them alone is a terrible option.

Olsen 193

In most cases it should be bala... In every game when I untapped Bala with 2 weapons on it I won that game. If you playing Palpatine - Galactic Emperor your first target should be Nightsister.

Hello, new to the game. Why do I see these decks with Ciena Ree - Adept Pilot not running any vehicles?

Olsen 193

@arefarwelcome. As I started playing star wars destiny there was a deck close to this one. It played General Veers - Field Commander instead of Ciena Ree - Adept Pilot. Veers has although an ability for vehicles but no vehicle was played in this deck. Because you want cheap weapons on Bala-Tik - Gang Leader hopefully you kill a character before he dies just to untap him and roll him again. The redeploy weapons stay in play, like the vehicles do.

Secret Facility - Scarif vs. ??? May I ask, if you were to play something other than Secret Facility, what would it be (and why). I would like to know what makes S.F. preferable. Thank you.

Also... if you felt the need for one more Intimidate, what would you remove to make room? Would it be better to remove one Logistics? Dare I ask -- is removing one of the Feel Your Anger cards a possibility? I would love to read your response on that (and the previous post). Thank, again -- and thanks for taking the time to share and comment.

Olsen 193

@billeddyfirst I wanted a battlefield that provides no real benefit for my opponent. Because I don't claim very often. The second thing is that you sometimes able to claim surprisingly for your opponent. Just to be ahead in the action race. If you want another battlefield I would try that one with the modified side.

@billeddy - i also run this Deck, I have found the extra Intimidate helpful as s have become very predominant in our local Meta, I would say Logistics is a viable choice to remove, I have not had issues with Also as far as the battelfield, you could try B'Omarr Monastery - Teth, it can help resolve an extra modifier.

Olsen 193

I wouldn't cut logistics. I love it first turn to play 2 weapons on Bala-Tik - Gang Leader;). And the X-8 Night Sniper needs a lot of money in the late game. I think if I would have to play it tomorrow I would cut a Friends in Low Places.

Olsen 193

Because you have to spot a yellow character and Bala was always the first target.
