Sora Bulq is a new deck we created for several reasons: We always want more Jedi types, we want more bad guys, and we want to find a way to make the “attack again” mechanic from the EU and 10YA Asajj deck work in a deck of our own.
In a 2016 session Sora was considered “fun” and “ready to step in”.
What does this deck do: Duels with up to 4 strong attacks in one turn, and attacks while defending too.

Figures: I would go with the Weequay Leader, far from perfect but you get it. I modded one with lightsabers.
This deck centers around the “attack again” mechanic from the aforementioned Asajj deck, plus it might be the first deck where “if not blocked” attacks have a chance to, well, not be blocked (in most decks, opponents always block those cards). This deck is intended to wear you down with up to 4 attacks in a single turn (following a possible counter-attack), depleting your defense enough to get an “if not blocked” attack through for big damage and a victory. GAIN POWER is included mostly because this deck needs that exact card to function or otherwise the controlling player will spend all his time drawing cards to launch a second attack. Other names were considered, but since Sora Bulq is affiliated with Count Dooku, it makes sense to keep the name the same. I mulled over whether to include RISING WHIRLWIND, a card that is a signature move of Sora’s, but probably serves to dilute and weaken him a bit instead of a 4th FURIOUS ATTACK, but am keeping it for flavor and because he probably shouldn’t be better than Tier 2. He isn’t, since we swapped his fairly tough Sith Acolytes for Battle Droid Officers.
Vassal X-Y: 100, 2650, getting moved down to the 8th line where the Jedi Exile used to be. So if you have the Jedi Exile in Vassal already, you’ll have to get the new one, which is one spot over on the same line, currently for extended universe types who didn’t appear in a film.
