The mysterious Darth Plagueis and his apprentice, the powerful Darth Sidious, have become a very nice presence in our Geektopia set, a dueling bad guy with the power to resurrect.

Theme: The Dark Arts can even create life
Path to Victory: Sidious plays big attacks then dies, Plagueis resurrects him and follows up
Strengths: High attacks, strong defensive major, can bring guys back from the dead
Weaknesses: Limited attack power if minor gets killed early, minor damages the major
Strategy: Attack with Sidious, get him killed, bring him back, attack again
Test Level: High
Inspiration: Cagey BB really wanted to do this one. Roman always wants more bad guys.
Playing Plagueis & Sidious: This can be a tricky deck to use, especially getting the most out of DARK ARTS, which takes a little luck. Hopefully, you get good Sidious offense early and just run him out there to do damage before he gets killed. If you can bring Sidious back from the dead, this deck can be pretty tough to beat, but if you can’t, it can be tough for you to win. Plagueis is no slouch as a melee combatant but he’s also not going to carve much of anyone up so he needs Sidious to do some damage before he loses him.
Playing against Plagueis: Stay on Sidious, even if Plagueis resurrects him. Sidious is powerful but fragile and simply needs to be eliminated. Plagueis can hang in there melee-wise but doesn’t really have any tricks to beware of and will struggle to do enough damage if Sidious goes down early.
