This is spicy.

@PorgChop it's like sriracha...so spicy but great for making a feast of other player's dice.

What would you say are the best/worst matchups for this deck?

Drop it like it's Hutt 2

I like where this is going. Why did you go with Maz's Castle - Takodana and how did it perform in action?

alsarkis 51

@agentc13 the only decklist this really struggles against is action cheat decks, like Cad/Snoke. If I don't get a chance to mitigate their dice, I can't do much. Also three wide vehicles can be a problem if I can't find my Force Wave right away. But even then, it performed pretty well against Launch Bae.

Its best matchups are probably two character aggros, like Luk3/Rey2 and KRAP. I can mitigate their dice all day long.

@Drop it like it's Hutt I chose Maz's Castle - Takodana because I usually don't want my battlefield. I want those shields so Snoke can get a few more pings out of DJ. In case we do play with mine, I can use it to dig for my Sith Holocron. But this deck usually moves slow enough that very rarely do I claim.

After playing it at GenCon, though, I may switch it to Rift Valley - Dathomir. I run mostly odd costed removal, so I can hit it the majority of the time and it offers another way to remove dice (and trigger DJ's ability).

Even so, very rarely do I choose my battlefield and I have to be playing against something very slow moving to claim on a consistent basis.

@alsarkis so what's the logic behind just 1 force illusion? Doesn't trigger dj but its still good?

alsarkis 51

@crawwurm no doubt that Force Illusion is an amazing card...but I found through testing that it wasn't as necessary. I have so much dice mitigation that I was stopping damage before it was getting dealt to me. So, while helpful, it isn't as necessary as it is in other blue decks.

1 Force Illusion is probably a factor in the weaker Cad match up though. Cad needs the proactive defense. 1 slot could be found for the second 1 im sure

@stranglebat It is possible. I haven't actually missed it yet, but you are more than welcome to tweak this list to your play style. If anything, I am looking at adding Rise Again.
