We also cover playstyles and discuss specific matchups against Vader/Raider, Jango/Veers, Jabba/Dooku, Luke/Ackbar and a couple rogue decks. You don’t want to miss out on this week’s coverage of one of the best decks in the meta, how to build it, play it and understand its strengths and weaknessess in any given matchup.
Welcome to the basics of building your first Star Wars: Destiny deck. This video covers all the points on characters, colors, deck restrictions, card types and more. Just remember to have fun and May the Force be with you.
Special guest Corey Konieczka joins the Knights of Ren as we discuss his work on Star Wars: Destiny from initial designs to playtesting and current sets. This week we talk about game/card designs and early prototypes as well as ask him questions from our listener’s posts on the Knights of Ren Facebook page and Star Wars Destiny Facebook group. You don’t want to miss out on what Corey has to say about what Destiny used to look like and what card effects used to be a part of early versions of Destiny
Star Wars: Destiny like any other trading/collectable card game allows players to find cards they want, build their decks, test, adjust and keep on playing until they find the deck they love. One of the biggest advantages a player can give themselves is understanding their deck. This is a point that not many people attempt to breakdown, but I hope that this article will give players tips to increase their understanding of Destiny and overall gaming experience.
Well, Wednesday just got interesting.
Before Christmas, FFG mistakenly sent out a Tweet that blew up the Destiny social media community. They mistakenly announced the new Destiny set, stated it would be Rogue One based and added a url which turned out to be empty at the time. But that was enough to light the touch paper of speculation and rumour.
Today, we were graced with the article that resides at the other end of that phantom link. The announcement that The Spirit of Rebellion, a new set of 160 Star Wars Destiny cards, would be released in the second quarter of this very year.
This week we cover a tournament report with Jay and dive right into the Hero Luke/Ackbar deck. We cover each card in the deck as well as how to play it and what the cards offer to make this deck stand out in the meta. Check out the decklist here: eLuke/Ackbar List
Good question. Are they? At my latest tournament, a fellow player levelled this question at me and I had no credible answer. There are 43 rare cards in the set. There are 43 uncommon cards in the set. You only get one of each in a booster pack. Does that not make them equally rare?
Tournaments, decks and a special guest on this week’s show! Jay covers two of his local events and the two decks he took to play. We also have a special guest, Christopher Dale Bates, he won a 54 player tournament at the Fantasy Flight Games HQ over the weekend
Christmas: A season full of surprises. The best of these are exceptional gifts or visits from friends and relatives. The worst? More Y fronts. But when news broke on Christmas Eve of Carrie Fisher’s heart attack on a plane bound for LA, there was a sense of impending doom. 2016 is already infamous for bad news and celebrity mortality has been a big part of that. Things didn’t look good.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years! On our last show of 2016 we cover 2 deck lists, one budget and one luxury deck for players to tinker with. We also recap they year and thank so many people who have helped contribute to the Destiny community as well as the Knights of Ren podcast. And we have announced where you can get your own Knights of Ren sticker and playmat swag at the end of the show.
