Tobias Beckett

Minor(s): Val

I actually like where this is going.  I have other ideas for him that I couldn’t include.

Tobias Beckett & Val
by Roman F

Tobias Beckett
14 HP
Yellow+ Deck

Val
10 HP
Strong ranged deck

12 Talent Cards

Beckett – 9 cards

3x HEAVY SHOT
A4*.  *HEAVY SHOT does double any damage, up to 6 total.

3x QUICK SHOT
A3.  Playing this card does not count as an action.

2x TRICK SHOT
A3*.  *Any defense card is discarded, effects are ignored and defender takes full damage.

2x SURVIVOR
If Val is alive, move Beckett and Val up to 4 spaces each, and draw 2 cards.  If Val has been destroyed, Beckett does 3 damage to all characters he can attack, including allies.

Val – 3 cards

2x CRACK SHOT
A5.  Draw a card.

1x HELL OF A RIDE
Val and all characters adjacent to Val take damage equal to the health that Val has remaining before playing this card.  Val is destroyed.

Inspiration:  Beckett is an interesting character and also a very skilled shooter with a quick draw and some gun tricks.  Between TRICK SHOT and SURVIVOR, I’m trying to capture his sneaky, out-for-himself personality.  There’s little evidence in the movie that Beckett really reacts to Val’s death, but it’s a fun mechanic for a deck.  Maybe I could build out that feeling a little further by dropping Val and just giving him 2 generic “crew” which are essentially Val and Rio, and freeing up 3 more card slots for him.  In this version, I like the way Val forces you to attack her, giving Beckett some defense of sorts, and time to build up an arsenal.  His shots are nasty, but a Yellow Deck with no power defense is never going to be that good.  Her card looks overpowered but I honestly doubt it will ever go off for much — but I admit it will be a NPE when it does.  Let’s get feedback on this version.

    Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to bring the Demolishor deck from the Transformers game into SW Epic Duels?

      I’ve been thinking this over. Beckett isn’t really a “loose cannon” — he’s calculated in what he does. At the same time, the deck could fit him in that he’s only in it for himself. It’s definitely a fun concept to install but it might a forced fit here.
