Good morning everyone! Matteo from Force Squad writing right now :) I'm here to present a very interesting list Fabio and I leaded to our hometown Regional in Bologna. With this deck I made top 8 with a 6-1 swiss record. Unfortunately Fabio didn't reach the top with a 4-3 record in swiss; he was unlucky in the early matches and this had an huge impact on his matchups. However, I'm here to talk about the deck and how it worked for me. It is simply amazing! A lot of possibilities are given by every card in the deck, creating every time a new combination to blow your opponents.
We decided to try this particular deck for fun, since the Grand Inquisitor is a card we didn't had for a long time and once we put our hands on it we had the moral duty of trying it. Of course, we wanted also to be unexpected. This was basically a Fabio's idea, and what an idea! First lists were not so effective, but testing it a lot we made a very solid base in our opinion, thanks also to our playtesting mate Gianluigi, alias Bad Destiny.
The deck focuses on upgrades, Holocron in particular, and a relevant factor in our decision of bringing it to the tournament is the probable absence of Rend. Here's the explanation of the main cards and choices.
Grand Inquisitor - Sith Loyalist: since Empire at War was released we thought the Inquisitor was a good card to play, with very strong faces, but his cost and in particular his absence in our hands made us ignore him. Now we have it, the meta allows a deck like this and it is completely unexpected, so we decided to give him a chance.
Seventh Sister - Agile Inquisitor: looking for a partner for our boss we tried Ciena, but her different color and different damage faces aren't good for a stable strategy. So, to share faces and roll 2 dice at activation, the only choice is the other inquisitor.
Dark Counsel: great card with very good faces for this deck, the chains with many other cards, the are food for your best card, the allows you make good things without using your strong dice, the faces prepare your Anger. What else?
Sith Holocron: as said before, this is an upgrades deck, and villains have many Abilities that relies on . We decided for the maximum sinergy between these upgrades, trying not to make the deck excessively heavy: so we have Lightning and Push, with a lot of good faces and . Throw is here because we wanted more control, more and more holocron targets.
Doubt and Overconfidence: other controls. These are very important because are the only sure control cards allowed without dice in pool. Overconfidence is also very strong when you have 2 or more droid dice in pool, since all his faces (except ) are high.
All In: guys, this cards is soooooo great for this deck. A huge amount of dice in play and let you do outstanding things.
- The Power of the Force: another really good card. I never used it with less than 4 upgrades, and when 1 become 5/6 almost every opponent says bad things. It is great also with or faces.
Round 2: Win vs Kanan/Rey/Padawan; another tournament in which I face my teammate Nathan early, so annoying. His deck is far more consistent in my opinion (I played it until the previous tournament, and it is really good) and he played very well. I had to lose that game. He countered every play I tried to build, and the only thing that saved me was the overtime: we had same damage on board and same number of cards in the deck, but I claimed the battlefield so I won. Very undeserved. 2-0
Round 5: Win vs Poe/Sabine; this game was so difficult for me. The opponent's deck had a very interesting concept, based on speed plays and claim effects. However I was fast enough in killing his guys and win. 5-0
Round 7: Win vs Poe/Rey; on the last swiss round my opponent was Gianluigi Basta (Bad Destiny), a very close friend with which we tested a lot in the last weeks. That game was very defensive and full of counter plays, and finished at the overtime, when 2 extra shields were game deciding for the win. However congratulations to my opponent who at the end won the whole event! We're so happy for him :) 6-1
Top 8: Loss vs Poe/Rey; again vs the very first opponent of the day. The good game I had on round 1 disappeared suddenly, and that top was very sad for me. 2 games of bad cards and rolls gave a quick win to my opponent.
So here is the end of the report. Thank you for reading all this! I and all the Force Squad hope you like that profile. Please give us any opinion on the deck!
Thanks also to the whole Force Squad and particularly to Gianluigi, and congratulations again for the result! Goodbye guys, and to the next time!
