After over 150 iterations tested of Reylo in the current environment, this is the iteration of the deck I decided to play at Worlds 2019. On a macro strategic level, the biggest difference between this deck and most Reylo decks is that it plays Theed Palace and actually wants to get upgrades down early. I want to see at least 1 one-cost upgrade early and will take resources instead of re-rolling for more damage on the first turn.
This ultimately makes the early game a bit weaker, but the long game much stronger. In the current meta, it specifically means the deck is a little weaker to droids (less likely to spike a character on turn one), but stronger against Aphra, Palp, Mill, Jabba, 4LOM, and the mirror. I felt like Droids were cooling down and the mirror was going to be more common, so I definitely don’t regret my choice of this version of the deck.
Some cards included that are not commonly seen in Reylo decks are Maul’s Saber and No Questions Asked. Maul’s Saber is absolutely a MVP card in the deck, so if you haven’t tried it do yourself a favor and give it a spin. It works particularly well in this deck, as I’m building to a character with 3 upgrades for the endgame. The number of games I’d drop this late in the turn as an overwrite with a melee already showing, a resource, and my opponent out of cards was immense. +3 or +4 damage can completely warp a game!
No Questions Asked was a card most people had to read when I played it, but it really fits this version of the deck. At the end of a game, it can easily be the final straw to topple the game my direction. Removing 2-3 of their best dice when resources are irrelevant AND drawing 3 cards is pretty insane. Even paying 1 to remove dice (like Vader’s Fist) that the deck has trouble removing can be super valuable.
Major props specifically to Eric Wainright for forcing me to evaluate a lot of cards in the deck from a very different perspective and to the entire Tulsa and OKC meta for helping me test in the months leading up to worlds. Also, shout out to all my worlds opponents for all the incredible games. It truly was “peak Destiny”.
