General Hux has so far been sort of a typical commander deck who relies upon troops, so we added some twists in early 2023.
Mainly though, he’s a cycler of direct damage who damages opponents just by being on the board. In 2023 we changed his secondary game to a forced discarding game to make him unique from other commanders, and also to pair well with other baddies like Palpatine, Snoke or ironically, Kylo Ren. He’s got plenty of power, but with 14 HP, a Yellow Deck and no power defense, he’ll never be in danger of being too powerful.
What does this deck do: Typical Geektopia Commander stuff like power up with his Troops, move them around, and heal them, but with a direct damage cycle and forced disdcarding.

Figures: Imperial Officer is a decent Hux, add a dab of red paint for his hair and you have a good one. I can’t distinguish between Stormtroopers and First Order Troopers.
Notes: As it was for the prior two trilogies, the new trilogy featured several colorful, interesting and unique heroes, but the villains were primarily officer types, leaders of throngs of faceless forces. General Hux didn’t really do a whole lot on screen to inspire making him into a dueling character, but he was a primary villain in the trilogy.
Hux is supposed to be sort of a direct damage timer that can play FIRE THE WEAPON up to 6 times, with Hux alone dispending 18 direct damage while his Troops deal it to minor characters. Plus he’s got some nasty forced discarding, and a RUTHLESS ATTACK Plan B once his troops get destroyed. He was ultimately revealed to be a spy in the final film, but that is an angle not brought out in this deck.
