This is a restoration of an old deck. With a lack of Ackbar decks and lack of Wedge decks around, and great figures, images and quotes for both, I’m determined to figure out something fun for this duo. I always thought this was the most intriguing of the Ackbar deck concepts, so comment below and let’s put something together!

Strong Ranged Minor Deck
Ackbar – 8 special cards
3x CONCENTRATE ALL FIREPOWER
A4*. *Add 3 to the attack value if Wedge can also attack the same character.
2x ASSUME ATTACK COORDINATES
A6. After attacking, move Ackbar up to 4 spaces, and then move Wedge up to 4 spaces.
1x IT’S A TRAP!
D8. Ackbar may play this card as defense for Ackbar or for Wedge. If played for Wedge, Wedge receives any damage and effects.
2x PREPARE RETREAT
Ackbar and Wedge each recover up to 2 points of damage. Move Ackbar up to 5 spaces and then move Wedge up to 5 spaces.
1x MAY THE FORCE BE WITH US
Choose an opponent. That opponent must reveal their hand and discard all basic combat cards.
Wedge – 4 special cards
2x I’LL TAKE THE LEADER
A4*. *If the target of the attack is a major character, the attack value of this card is 8.
1x COPY GOLD LEADER
A8. Double the value of any basic combat card played as defense.
Bonus Wedge .PDF card: replaces one PREPARE RETREAT
Draw 5 cards. Then remove Wedge from the game. Playing this card does not count as an action.
Notes: This version looks pretty solid to me. They’ve got the potential for really good offense, but they’re a brittle pair and they lose most of their O once Wedge goes down.
