Why tweak Jango? To make him stronger. Jango is by far the weakest 2v2 deck in the original set. Good movement doesn’t make up for weak offense and weak defense. We find the whole “if not blocked” concept in Zam’s SNIPER SHOT to be largely ineffective. Overall, the original version doesn’t have much going for it and isn’t much fun, these tweaks give it a little more bite.
1x KAMINO SABER DART
A9, draw 3 cards if target is destroyed
Tweak 3x SNIPER SHOT to: A3*, SNIPER SHOT does double any damage.
Theme: A pair of fast, hard-hitting bounty hunters
Path to Victory: ROCKET LAUNCH + KAMINO SABER DART
Strengths: High attacks, high movement, strong minor
Weaknesses: Low staying power, attack power is spread across 2 characters
Strategy: Use movement to keep the distance and rotate Jango and Zam to keep both alive
Test Level: Very High
Notes: Tweaks don’t make them much stronger, but they give Jango another big attack and Zam a bit more punch, that’s enough to contribute to a win here and there, which is better than they used to do. Jango still has low overall staying power and has to rely on his considerable movement abilities and Zam, who’s damage output is a little better. Jango loses his signature Flamethrower but he doesn’t really miss it.

The 10-Year Anniversary Tweaks are slightly different than ours.
There are a few other options out there but nothing I’m really familiar with.
