|Piett/2x Super Commando||3||2||2||1.0|
I ended up winning my 2nd store championship with this deck on 7/28/18. The first was won with this deck, http://swdestinydb.com/decklist/view/22205/mandocommandosscwinner5-1-1.0. Chatting on a local discord server led me to this Piett version, created by Henry, also known as @arroz_con_mango on discord. Thanks a bunch for this list Henry. This was at Tacoma Games, with a 10 person store championship, no cut, 4 rounds swiss. Both wins had low-ish turnout but the level of play was good, with each having at least 2 regional top-8 players.
Fundamentally, it's very similar to my Talzin deck (linked above). Both have plenty of cards to trigger the Mandalorian Super Commando Power Action and also tremendous consistency for rolls. Talzin fixes bad rolls, Firmus Piett - Ambitious Admiral lets you set both Mando dice to a value of 1. I'm fairly sure the math is similar on both, since typically Talzin is going to set one of them to a 2, but Piett lets you set them both at 1.
I won an SC with Talzin, so I figured I had nothing to lose piloting this version with Piett, plus red gives me access to DH-17 Blaster Pistol and The Best Defense..., two fantastic cards. Probe is also one of my favorite red cards.
Game 1: Brennan, running Leia/Yoda mill. (his deck here: http://swdestinydb.com/decklist/view/22438/yolo-2ndplacestorechamp-1.0). Brennan was top8 in the Seattle regional last year.
Leia/Yoda mill is disgustingly good, i'm sure folks are starting to figure that out. This came down to the wire, but the Mandalorian Vambraces saved my bacon, with them being able to sneak around mill and also do damage. I had one card left in my deck. Brennan finished 2nd.
Game 2: Shane, also playing Leia/Yoda mill.
This game started off really bad for me, Hit-and-Run into Commando Raid to snatch 4 from my hand, including a Vambraces. I eventually was able to kill Leia with a sneaky Relentless Pursuit, and afterward pinged Yoda via power actions and backup muscle enough to get the W. Mill is really good right now. Shane finished 4th.
Game 3: Alex, eRex 2x Clone Trooper
This deck was super scary. He was able to get Rex's Blaster on Rex turn one, and also managed to get Wingman on a clone trooper to activate all of his characters, and roll 2 dice every round. I was lucky enough to get enough damage on Rex to take him out, then it was fairly smooth sailing after that. He ended up getting 3rd place, great deck.
Game 4: Lucas, eDJ ePhasma2.
I really wasn't sure how to go about playing this deck, since both characters are fairly solid in their own rights, but decided to get DJ out of the way due to his passive being so consistent. I also felt my deck was in a good place against him, since the majority of the damage I'm dealing is 1 or 2, removal tends to feel very inefficient against low damage sides. Again, Papercuts is the best name for what these decks are doing to you. I took DJ out with a #relentless, which always feels fantastic, and Phasma had already sustained some damage when I left DJ at 9/11 health and moved toward her. My opponent wasn't quite sure what I was planning until I sprung the trap after he used #risky and gave me the chance to seal the deal with the Relentless after mitigating some of his damage and a free ambush.
My other deck has taken off in popularity on here and again if you have any questions about this deck, how to play it, please post a comment and i'll respond as quickly as I can. Same with the Talzin version, tons of consistency and damage with these decks. 27 health starting is no joke, you can outlast a lot of aggro with the HP and cards like Armor Plating and Plastoid Armor. Try to mulligan for a dh-17 and something free like a Quickdraw Holster or Plastoid Armor to get some ping damage on early. Piett to focus both Mandalorians to 1 or melee was awesome and puts your opponent on a lot of pressure.
