Would be considered “fringe” in Star Wars Miniatures as he’s not really good or evil.
What does this deck do: Blasts you with a variety of shots while looking for direct damage to swing the game.
Tobias Beckett & Val
by Roman F
Strong ranged deck
12 Talent Cards
Beckett – 9 cards
3x HEAVY SHOT
A4*. *If the target character takes damage from this attack, HEAVY SHOT does 2 additional damage.
2x QUICK SHOT
A3. Playing this card does not count as an action.
2x TRICK SHOT
A3*. *Any defense card is discarded, effects are ignored and defender takes full damage.
If Val is alive, move Beckett and Val up to 4 spaces each, and draw 2 cards. If Val has been defeated, choose a target and roll the die. Do that amount of damage to target on green, or all other characters on purple.
Val – 3 cards
2x CRACK SHOT
A5. Draw a card.
1x HELLUVA RIDE
Val does 4 damage to all adjacent major characters and 7 damage to all adjacent minor characters. Val is destroyed.
Inspiration: Beckett is an interesting character and also a very skilled shooter with a quick draw and some gun tricks. Between TRICK SHOT and SURVIVOR, I’m trying to capture his sneaky, out-for-himself personality. There’s little evidence in the movie that Beckett really reacts to Val’s death, but it’s a fun mechanic for a deck. Maybe I could build out that feeling a little further by dropping Val and just giving him 2 generic “crew” which are essentially Val and Rio, and freeing up 3 more card slots for him. In this version, I like the way Val forces you to attack her, giving Beckett some defense of sorts, and time to build up an arsenal. His shots are nasty, but a Yellow Deck with no power defense is never going to be that good. Her card looks overpowered but I honestly doubt it will ever go off for much — but I admit it will be a NPE when it does. Let’s get feedback on this version.
Vassal X-Y: 300, 2650, in a spot that the Jedi Exile held for a while, part of the late 2022 X-Y shakeup.
Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to bring the Demolishor deck from the Transformers game into SW Epic Duels?
I’ve been thinking this over. Beckett isn’t really a “loose cannon” — he’s calculated in what he does. At the same time, the deck could fit him in that he’s only in it for himself. It’s definitely a fun concept to install but it might a forced fit here.
Yeah, I was just throwing that out because I would really like to see that deck in SWED.
I put a little flavor of it in there.
Actually yeah, I think this is a good idea after all. I’m not all that interested in playing this deck without a little more “do-something”. Beckett is a gambler, so his using a dice roll makes sense, and you kind of never know what he’s going to do next.
I don’t see a PDF for download here? Can someone upload it?
Thanks JusDan. Try it now.
Thank you! Excited to give it a go!
I recently re-did the entire base game with the Wizards miniature series and have been custom building minis for Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Solo expansions you’ve made.
I really appreciate it!
Cool! Would love to see photos of the minis!
Hey, the link doesn’t work? any chance this could work again?
Hi thanks for pointing out the problem. Should be working now.
