Some interesting ideas for Hot Shot but I’ve never really seen him have an effective game.  His cards look like he can have one.  I tried a 4x A4 version of QUICK SHOT in SWED but it didn’t work at all.  One of many failed ideas for our Kit Fisto deck.

    A little out of the blue, but what do you think about this tweak?

    Replace:
    3x QUICK SHOT

    With:
    3x DEADLY AIM: A4: Draw 2 cards.

    Then:
    Tweak 4x QUICK SHOT: A5: [same effect]

    That way Hot Shot has a reliable “bread-and-butter offense card” that helps him draw into his QUICK SHOTS, which now has a higher base value allowing him to get off big attacks at a more consistent rate. I’ve tried these tweaks a bit and they seem to make him stronger overall although still a bit weak compared to the other “tier 2” decks (Red Alert, Demolisher, and Cyclonius).

      So you would have 4x QUICK SHOT? A5*. Show your hand to all players. Add 2 to the attack value for every other Quick Shot card in your hand.

      We tried a version of this in an old Fisto deck and it was pretty weak but that’s ok as long as he has other things to hit with, like your DEADLY AIM card. Your overall version looks fun.

        Yeah, that’s it; same effect just a higher value. I actually tried to make my Qi’ra a SWED version of Hot Shot and I think it turned out fine.

        One thing I’m mulling over is whether to keep the name DEADLY AIM or change it to something else. Right now it’s just a reference to the Boba deck, but I’m thinking I could change it to CHARGED SHOT and that way it would poke fun at the fact that the card called QUICK SHOT is the one you need to “charge up” by having up several copies of it in your hand. But, I don’t know.
