To fill out the complete set of characters, we have adopted the unedited R2-D2 & C-3P0 deck by Mike Maloney for occasional Geektopia play. We tinkered with our own version but in GenCon 2012, Roman and Cagey were defeated by a team using this as one of their two decks, and Cagey finally believed a deck without an A8 could succeed. It’s a Tier 3 deck, at least in Geektopia, but it can help a teammate win.
This isn’t a deck we’ll break out a whole lot but if you want to represent R2-D2 in Epic Duels, Mike’s is pretty much how you would do it and we do play it once in a while. It’s a great design.
It’s included in the Geektopia Vassal set so that you can easily mix with the other decks. It’s Vash’s R2-D2 deck, just worse-looking, but convenient.
What does this deck do: Just enough to frustrate an opponent, control the board, and aid a teammate while doing a great job of representing the droids.
