Mysterious Kook 387
Took 1st place with this deck at a store championship in Louisville, KY on 7/7. There were 17 players, and a lot of good competition. The event was 4 rounds with a cut to top 4. I decided to run Kylo at this event because I figured a lot of people would be trying to get in one last tournament with Sabine and Aayla before they get balanced by the force, and thus I'd be able to prey on monocolor decks. Sabine and Rey/Aayla were also pretty popular choices in the pre-WotF meta, and figured people would just play what they knew. The meta was very diverse, and there weren't a lot of monocolor decks, but I got lucky with a couple matchups.
Round 1 - Leia/Cassian Mill
I focused on Leia and was able to secure a kill in Round 3. His Cassian dice weren't rolling very well, and once Leia was off the table there was a lot less discard pressure. I was able to find both my Ancient Lightsabers for some mill insurance, and ultimately I ended up milling him out with Pryce's discard sides after he had pitched to reroll a lot during the previous rounds trying to get Cassian's dice to cooperate. Win 1-0
Round 2 - Luke3/Aayla
I was able to kill Luke early in Round 2 with a New Orders play and that was basically the game. He had no redeploy weapons out yet and Aayla was no match for a full health Kylo and barely damaged Pryce. Win 2-0
Round 3 - Lando/Yoda Mill
This round I definitely got pretty lucky. I focused down Yoda, killing him Round 3 with a Throne Room claim on Crossguard, and luckily milled both Second Chances and a Hyperspace Jump with Close Quarters Assault and his Force Illusion. The key to this matchup was staying ahead of him on claiming to keep the pressure up. I also rolled above average this round, which definitely helps against mill since every card counts and pitching to reroll can be dangerous. Win 3-0
Round 4 - Kylo/Snoke
I anticipated this game was going to be a slugfest, but I was able to burst down Kylo pretty fast and control his resource generation by mitigating his Chance Cube. I had the advantage of always being able to tag one of his characters for 2 with Kylo's ability, while keeping a good mix of blue, red, and gray cards in my hand. Snoke is scary, but he wasn't able to utilize his power action very much since I kept applying pressure to Kylo. Win 4-0
Semifinals - Luke3/Aayla
This was a rematch from round 2, and while he was able to play a more competitive game this time, I was still able to take out Luke early in Round 3 while having a full health Kylo. Aayla did get some good damage in, but the extra 2 damage a turn from Kylo was too much to overcome.
Finals - Poe2/Cassian
This was a very intense game. I had no mitigation early and he was able to do a number on Kylo while I wasn't able to get much going. Kylo died in Round 3 and Pryce already had 4 damage on her from Cassian indirect damage. I barely finished off Cassian that round with an Intimidate removing 1 shield and a 2 melee from Pryce, but I had to face a full health Poe2 with Poe's Blaster and a DH-17 equipped, all while my opponent was looping Suppressive Fire and Honor Guard with Docking Bay. Force Illusion showed up on time, and a clutch Feel Your Anger removing 2 dice allowed me to claim the battlefield and set up for another New Orders play. I was very lucky and rolled out Pryce with an Heirloom and Ancient equipped and rolled double Special on Pryce and a resource on Heirloom. He wasn't able to remove both the Heirloom die and the Pryce dice and I was able to turn the Heirloom to the 3 and resolve it +1 with Pryce since I had the battlefield for the kill. I played the New Orders anyways because I already had the line set in my head, but didn't need to. I think there's a lesson there about re-evaluating each play, regardless if you already have a specific line of play in mind.
Moving forward I think I'm going to swap 2 Shoto for 2 Vibroknife and cut It Binds All Things. Just having Logistics felt like enough resource generation, plus with Pryce you can always use her special to get 2 resources if you control the battlefield. I'm also going to try to work in another copy of Tactical Mastery, and potentially another New Orders. Force Speed probably deserves a spot too. I believe this list can be vastly improved, so any suggestions are welcome.
