    First, comments on the rules changes; later, I'll comment on the new virtual cards.

    -Dueling
    I'm not sure I like the idea of a player "passing" not getting to initiate battle this turn. If I initiate a duel and draw a bad dueling hand, I get penalized twice it seems.

    -Dueling Damage and Dueling Text
    In general I like these changes. The "Damage" rule takes some of the sting out of losing a duel, and the "Text" rule makes it even easier to defend a duel without having dueling characters in your deck.

    -Armed & Dangerous
    I think the PC is trying to have it both ways: you can't target MTTs with Pounded Unto Death, but you can target them with Jedi Force Push?? I don't like this rule.

    -Deck Construction
    I'm not convinced this is a good rule yet. It seems too arbitrary. I don't know what its purpose is, but I suspect there must be a better way to achieve that purpose. I can still have 30 battledroids in my swarm deck -- but I can only have 10 Qui-Gons in my dueling deck instead of 15? Is Jira the only reason for this rule? If so, there should be a better way to handle it.

    -Hyperspace
    No problem. Makes sense, and adds some strategy.

    -Podracing
    Okay, this weakens podracing somewhat, so I guess it is a good rule. But its not what I wanted to see. I wanted to see podracing be more interactive by allowing your opponent to podrace against you even if they did not put the podracing objective or even a podracer pilot in their deck. SW:CCG did this with their podracing game mechanic, and I think something similar could have worked here. This rule may slow down podracing, but it doesn't make podracing interactive, and probably won't discourage podracing that much.

    Never mind my comment on Armed & Dangerous cards. I was confused on that issue.
