I developed this list from my Hera/eKanan/Maz list that I used at Pax South. Yoda typically draws their fire, but that lets you build around Maz and Hera for late game.
Deck list is mostly untested - a few changes were made on the way to the regional.
Thoughts on cards:
Getting Quadjumper and any big vehicle is such a power play with Hera. It's like her special becomes a 3-4 resource side.
Millennium Falcon w/ Maz has blowout potential, but the 1/3 chance of whiffing if you don't have any extra focus in the pool can hurt.
Speeder Tank might be overcosted at 5, but it's pretty great at 3 w/ rally aid, or 2 with a Hera -> Quadjumper trick
R2-D2 isn't quite as good as C-3PO, but being able to play both felt better than one.
If Resistance Bomber was hard-played (without Hera's ), I usually rolled it out first. If your opponent spends removal on it, you don't need to take 1 damage on the support.
Y-wing feels like the best card in the deck, but a cheap/early U-wing is game changing if you use its special for 6 shields.
Caution is great, but it's hard to find that moment where you can give up a Hera/Maz die to protect Yoda. It's necessary, but it feels like a tough decision. Same goes for Vandalize on targets with more than 1 cost.
Republic Cruiser was disappointing. Seems good on paper, but I found myself getting resources when I needed shields and shields when I needed resources. Could have just been bad luck.
T-47 is solid, but I didn't see it much.
Turns out Yoda actually has 2 blank sides - and . (Disrupt was great against decks with Hyperspace Jump though, occasionally)
I was nervous about taking Force Illusion because of Vandalize. getting more popular. Definitely a mistake - Force Illusion would have been much better to have.
Notes on Tournament
Very fun tournament! Surprisingly spacious tables for a store hosting 75 people. Pairings were up quickly and judges were excellent. Also nice to see 3 guys from Golden Dice's local meta make Top 8!
