Nice deck you got here! I love playing the battle droids! I’m excited to try them out with the new Imperial Troop Transport. Why no Salvo?

@Corbog Because the only cards that generate ranged damage in the deck are the battle droids themselves and the Imperial Troop Transport. With 5 active droids, I have a 59.8% chance of rolling one ranged damage per round, and a 33.3% chance of rolling a ranged damage on the Transport by itself, which works out to a 73.21% chance of seeing ranged damage on a die per round. That seems high, except that in only one case am I actually "happy" to see the ranged damage (for Salvo usage), and that's on the transport itself.

There is definitely a case to include it, but it would only make sense (IMO) in a direct play with the transport, which would require drawing both it and a transport and being able to play (and afford) both of them before I lose enough battle droids to make it not as strong of a play. This deck doesn't have amazing resource generation, so locking down 5 resources for an possible extra 3-5 damage early on feels like it'd rely way too much on luck.

Gotcha. Yeah I guess I’m use to putting 2x LR1K Sonic Cannon with Imperial Backing. Makes salvo a little more useful. I know what you mean about not generating resources though.

have your thought about running Aftermath We Have Them Now Ammo Reserves or even Drop Zone

for me the above cards work well
