The new Q1 2018 X-wing kit is being described as a “Stay on Target” tournament. Clearly inspired by our podcast, of course. After all, it’s not like the phrase “Stay on Target” is used elsewhere. You’re welcome, FFG. Michigan Regional semi-finalist Tommy Adams joins Gordon, Mikhail and Franch to discuss his four ship rebel list.
In this week’s episode we honor the great show that has been Star Wars Rebels as the series just ended this week. We take a moment to highlight our favorite cards inspired by Rebels, some Rebels cards that have impacted the competitive meta, and some Rebels-themed cards we’d like to see come to Destiny. Dont’ forget to send us a response to our Question of the Week on our Facebook page as well.
In this week’s episode we hit all the formats: draft, standard, and trilogy! Mike won a draft. DHaus got a Worlds ticket. Can the Jedha Partisan find a place in damage decks? Is mill really a negative play experience? You tell us! Thanks for listening!
On this week’s shorter episode, we discuss Mike’s experience going 5-1 at the first ever Trilogy-format Galactic Qualifier. (Of course he played Jar Jar…). We also talk about a couple drafts DHaus participated in and how Mike’s influence is negatively impacting him. Enjoy the ride!
Dreams do come true! Who cares if it took a different Gordon than the show’s host to climb the mountain top? Suffer with Mikhail and Franch in their dismay, having to listen to Gordon and guest sychophant Camden go on and on about the achievement of his namesake – Gordon Pinkerton – who won the Portland System Open. Oh yeah, and obligatory meta talk — in all its Fenn/Ghost glory.
Gordon and Mikhail think they have the show all to themselves, but Franch crashes the party. Then DHaus of all people shows up to brag about being in another Organized Play promo pic. There’s also talk about the Indy Regional.
This week is a special regionals recap with DHaus and Mike the RebelSpy. After going over a few regionals winners, we go into a deep analysis of Mike’s top 8 regional run with a Jar Jar Binks mill deck. Yes, you read that correctly. Is Jar Jar the Sith Lord he’s always been rumored to be?
What do you get when two hosts of a podcast are sick at the same time? A shorter episode! We talk about some fun decks we are trying, the first couple regionals where Legacies was legal, and another round of Draft It or Pass It.
It was almost a perfect weekend: X-wing streams everywhere and the Steelers (Big Ben, Brown and Bell) advancing to the AFC Championship. Ugh, the Steelers! Fine, at least Jeff Berling joins us for some meta analysis. Nevermind, he’s not available. Okay, well, congrats to the Birmingham Barons podcast member Joel Killingsworth for going 15-0 across two events at PAX South?
This week DHaus and Mike are joined by Jay from Double Blanks to talk about their experiences with the limited release of Legacies this past weekend. From single box sealed, to draft, to normal 8 pack sealed, we did it all! Stick around for another round of ‘Draft It or Pass It” too!
