    Well, here's another deck idea I wanted to try for fun, using the objective "This Deal is Getting Worse All the Time/Pray I don't Alter it Any Further". The idea i to get dark deal going by owning cloud city, while I try to hurt them with destiny draws during battle (hence the seven cards w/a 7 destiny that do nothing for the deck) so I'm concetrating on the 6 and 7 destiny cards, with a few 5-destiny cards that are pretty useful for the deck.

    Doh, forgot reactor terminal wasn't immune to alter, so prepared defenses can't deploy that, so I've throw in an extra (second) one of those, and may or may not choose another effect to throw out at the start (maybe throw in an All Wrapped Up for that)...suggestions? I also added IG-88, Aurra Sing and switched the west gallery to the interregation room, so i can add force drain bonuses when IG-88 captures someone or when all too easy is played.

    Also considering making room for Sebulba's Podracer too..but may or may not pursue that possibility...

    Here's a thought on your destiny strategy. Instead of packing a bunch of destiny 7 cards you aren't going to use, pack some TIE bombers -- especially Scimitar Squadron TIEs (destiny 2) -- and start Planetary Subjugation. Planetary Subjugation lets you add up to 5 to the destiny of any TIE bomber drawn for weapon or battle destiny. And those 4 Intruder Missles you've got will deploy quite nicely on them thank you very much. Three Scimitar TIEs, four Intruder missles ... voila, now you have 7 useful "destiny 7" cards instead of 7 useless ones.

    A couple of other thoughts:

    TDIGWATT lets you deploy Secret Plans (and/or All Wrapped Up) at start of game. That gives you one more effect you can use with Prepared Defenses. ... How about No Escape? You'd hate to have your opponent drop down Honor Of The Jedi and kill CCO and DD, wouldn't you? Or how about TINT/OE combo to kill SAC?

    Since you've got a couple of All Too Easy and three characters w/sabers, why not throw in the Carbon Chamber site and take out Interrogation Room? Gets you more activation, too.

    ok, I sacrificed the +2 power bonus at the lower corridor for the carbon freeze chamber, that way it is possible to freeze people there with All too easy, and drop them off at the interregation room for the force drain bonus, plus anyone IG-88 nabs.

    Dropped the Evacuate? for No Escape (and thank you very much for pointing that out for me, I forgot that) since the only one who'll really be aboard a cap starship thats able to be rescued is Thrawn.
