Hey everyone, It's been almost two months since i've been on tabletop or even picked up my cards at home due to a very dead scene in my area, but with the release of new cards you know I had to start grinding again. I've seen a few different pairings with the new version of the Ataru Master. I like what the original Rey brings over yoda/Aayla or the double gungans. This is a very early version of the deck, i've tried a few things even getting jedi robes back in the list but it was just far too slow for my liking. I have yet to try lukes protection but i fear the tempo loss isn't worth it. Perhaps take cover or defensive stance should be in here since this decks power and economy live and die by shields. In fairness i haven't run into a lot of shield hate decks yet, but if he ends up being strong those frighten and intimidates are sure to come out.
What I love about the deck is it's functionality. I usually select my opponents BF to get the shields on Qui-Gon Jinn - Defiant Jedi Master right away. The best side to hit early is those money sides. If he gets one, rey has 2 on her dice you can find yourself affording eveything quick. If not, a 2 and 3 damage side isn't bad. Destiny is a fantastic play early as well since Qui-Gon Jinn - Defiant Jedi Master trait is persistent it changes the value not just during resolving dice. So his 2's are 3's for the purpose of Destiny.
The plays with this deck are pretty standard Rey - Force Prodigy plays. Load up who she is supporting, throw down a force speed on her and then an ambush weapon for two actions so your dice are unmitigated. Loth-Wolf Bond is nuts for a few reasons, you get the combo in and it gets all your dice on the table, while shielding up and getting that 2nd action with everything you got. If you hit a force speed special even better, you've basically just won. Vibroknife is as powerful as ever since the modified side is crazy in this with shoto's being +2's and +3's when EQ2 is shielded up and Rey brings +2's herself. This deck lacks focus sides so sometimes Destiny ain't giving you that unmodified side.
Heightened Awareness is banana's since your opponent can strip your shields or hit them off you thinking it will drop your damage by 2-5 then you drop the HA and your back in the saddle. If you have a resource showing, that card is essentially free since after you have 3 shields his 1r is worth 2r. This deck is very very combo-y.
My Ally Is The Force is very solid but expensive, i've gotten quite a bit of mileage out of it, yet i wonder if ataru strike just isnt a better version minus the ambush.
Cards I like but might need to come out:
Dagger Obi's Saber Qui-Gon's Saber MAITF
This deck revolves around shoto's vibros and action cheating. I rarely use more than 1 3 drop making me think I should be using Heirloom in place of at least 2 of the 3 drops. At least if EQ2 goes down, then rey will be loaded. I'll do some more testing but I think the non redeploy uniques need to be switched.
This deck thrives on EQ2 having shields, so I'm very interested in trying Take Cover since its free and this can be an expensive deck. Other considerations are Trust Your Instincts since I do tend to dump to RR and filling the hand back up isn't bad, plus it is cycling for you ambush weapons. Swiftness is worth trying as well to give the drops ambush, but you really want every non ambush upgrade except Force Speed on EQ2 already and the benefit of swiftness is to get the two extra actions from Rey. It may prove useful enough to include it but it is something i haven't tested yet.
Anyway, cheers. I really like it so far and there are other cards you could take in and out, but have fun its a brutal deck!
