After piloting the much more Common Hero Vehicles build of eAayla eRose Ezra for the last month, i ended up being inspired by Hyperloops article around Hero Vehicles and the road to worlds - https://www.thehyperloops.com/18wc2/

It references dustin13862's deck with Wedge, eRose and Jedha deck. It also mentions how Hired Gun is a serious contender due to health and 2 resource sides so i decided to explore this, and build on the card selection based on what i had experienced playing my previous Hero Vehicles Deck.

I previously had this down as a recent GNK winner but it suprised me and got me to Top 8 at World's! I was knocked out but Mads and his Rey Aayla deck (very worthy winner!), but played some great people and was impressed at how well this build performed. Will do more of a write up in the near future, as well as making a couple of small tweaks based on some learns from the weekend.

I have now updated this with WotF and it has become unbelievably more consistent with capability to ramp even quicker. Considering their cost, the Resistance Crait Speeders are one of the best dice in the game when coupled with Roses ability and Suppressive Fire/Blaze of Glory make it even easier to stay alive whilst you drop multiple vehicles per turn.

Be interested to hear peoples thoughts!

I know we had a good conversation the last time you posted, but have you tried Hailfire Droid Tank? I feel like the 4 cost is fairly prohibitive.

Nogutsnoglory11 139

We did! Always good to talk to fellow Wedge players. Yeah i think you hit the nail on the head, the 4 cost just makes it that little bit more awkward to get out. I have tried to remove anything that causes friction, which has led to me replacing the HWK with less restricting options. The deck feels at a place where each card adds a lot of value and it is now very rare that I'm sad to see any particular card turn up in my hand.

Forgot to tag you @dustin13862 in my last comment, how are you finding Wedge with the WotF release?

@Nogutsnoglory11 Why a Fang Fighter instead of a second Y-Wing?

dustin13862 249

@Nogutsnoglory11 I find his power action just as good as before with even more cheap and effective vehicles. I LOVE the Resistance Crait Speeder though!

Nogutsnoglory11 139

@Razelll - Great question, and there are two main reasons. Firstly, i like to have some big direct sides amongst all the indirect to allow me to finish characters off where needed. The second reason for leaving a Y-Wing out is a bit of a meta call due to the popularity of high resource generating decks like Snoke Thrawn who make the Y-Wing special quite redundant.

@dustin13862 I know what you mean, it is absolutely bonkers how good the Craft Speeders side are with Rose. Getting one out with Weapons Factory first turn and then power actioning to a Resource side for another 2 resources feels bonkers!

@Nogutsnoglory11 Even if they generate a bunch of resources. Wouldn't it be good to disrupt for 4 so that they can't play a big vehicle. So if they wanted to keep their resources to play their big vehicle, then they have to take the damage.

Nogutsnoglory11 139

@Razelll Early game you are absolutely right, it's later game once they have some big vehicles down that they are then able to essentially mitigate the Ywing damage with resources. I find this isn't just the case with Snoke Thrawn but lots of other decks that can ramp a good board state early.

Just took my deck to a SC in Virginia and went 3-2 and missed the top cut. I should have been 4-1 but I made a major misplay forgetting that my opponent (mill) switched the battlefield and milled the last card out of my hand on his claim. If I had gone to another round, with 5 vehicles and all 3 characters, Im pretty sure I could have gotten the 4 damage required to win.

Nogutsnoglory11 139

@dustin13862 good work! I know your deck is slightly different to mine but think you've switched to Hired Gun since last time we spoke? Will probably be taking this to UK Nationals in a few weeks time to see how it gets on!

`@Nogutsnoglory11 how are you using C3p0 and why not tech team?

Nogutsnoglory11 139

@Blakeclevenger I found tech team a bit too slow, Rally aid, C3PO (will explain) and the Crait Speeders are much more effective at churning out vehicles.

As for C3p0, the question is more what don't I use him for? In a situation where I have lots of dice out that havent rolled well, C3p0 turns a 3 indirect into 3 focus. Early game, he turns a 3 indirect into 3 resources for another vehicle. Most importantly, C3p0 kills characters. I can't count the number of times I've used C3p0 to resolve a Bombers 3 or even 6 indirect side as direct damage for a killing blow.
