We tried a lot of tweaks over many years, but finally settled into this set around 2016, and it’s pretty much set in stone for us. You can explore the reasoning on each of the individual deck pages, but a collection of all the tweaks can be found and discussed here.
“BOBA & DENGAR”
Dengar replaces Greedo with 10 HP (instead of 7), the same basic cards and 3 new talent cards (listed below):
1x UNCONTROLLED RAGE
A7. Dengar takes 2 damage.
A5. If Han Solo is target, draw 3 cards. If another named character is the target, draw 2 cards.
D*. Dengar takes full damage from the attack. If Dengar is still alive, attacker takes equal damage.
Results: A much stronger deck, probably the strongest shooter deck, like Boba Fett probably should be.
“DARTH TYRANUS” (Dooku)
1x FORCE DRAIN
1x GIVE ORDERS
2x DARK LIGHTNING: Inflict 3 damage to one character; controlling player must choose and discard 1 card.
Tweak 2x GIVE ORDERS cards by adding “draw a card”.
Tweak 2x FORCE PUSH by increasing the damage from 1 to 2.
Results: A stronger and more thematic deck, a Tier 1B deck and one of the best teammates.
“SITH LORD VADER”
Tweak 2x DARK SIDE DRAIN from A3 to A5.
Tweak 1x ALL TOO EASY from A3* to A9*, still 20 damage if not blocked.
Results: A stronger and more fun deck, but not stronger than a mid-ranged deck.
“JANGO & ZAM”
1x KAMINO SABER DART
A9, draw 3 cards if target is destroyed
Tweak 3x SNIPER SHOT to: A3*, SNIPER SHOT does double any damage.
Results: A stronger deck and more fun deck, but still very weak, Tier 3B, just not as terrible as before.
“LUKE & LEIA”
Tweak 2x JUSTICE from A4 to A6; still A10 if Leia is destroyed.
Tweak 2x LUKE’S IN TROUBLE to: Move Leia adjacent to Luke, Luke recovers 4 damage, Leia recovers 4 damage if Luke is destroyed.
Results: A stronger and more fun deck, solid mid-Tier.
Replace 2x WISDOM with 2x MASTERFUL FIGHTING
Then, tweak 4x MASTERFUL FIGHTING from A5 to A6
Results: A really strong, Tier 1A deck.
“OBI-WAN, JEDI KNIGHT”
Tweak 2x FORCE CONTROL to A5, move Obi-Wan and attacked character up to 3 spaces.
Results: Still very strong, but instead of ridiculously so, he’s more like Tier 1B with these tweaks, which is appropriate.
“MASTER YODA” (but more like Dagobah Yoda)
Tweak 3x FORCE LIFT to allow Yoda to choose any character, not just an adjacent character, and to allow only the affected player to discard 3 cards, not any player.
Tweak 2x FORCE STRIKE from A6 to A8.
Results: Mostly less annoying and more fun with the FORCE LIFT tweak, but also a little stronger, more like 1B.
