    A spoiler on the [link=]TeamBus.Net[/link] website all but confirms it. The card is a mission card called "Remember the Prophecy":

    Remember the Prophecy
    "Choose a player and a card type. (The card types are Battle, Mission, Space, Ground, Character, and Location.) That player reveals the top 5 cards of his or her deck, puts all those cards of the chosen type into his or her hand, and discards the rest."

    So we can pretty much expect to see this be the new card type in ESB this November.

    How do you guys think this will work? Personally I think it will be some kind of long term effect placed on the table until covered over by another location that then has a new long term effect, etc, etc. I think it would be something like "Tatooine: All Skywalker and Tatooine units in all arenas have shields 2 and power plus 3 as long as Tatooine is the location on the table." This is a bit simple but just an example of my guess.

    What would you guys guess it will be like?

    Deffinately has some interesting implications... Can't quite figure out how they will do it -but i'm sure they will be creative with it.

    Also theres the new ability too Disrupt - tap the character when your opponent plays a battle card and they must discard the battle card - I know the new ESB promos Yoda and Vader have this.

    well I hope they make them give "extras" or restrictions to one side or the other.

    I wonder if they'll have light/dark of each location or if they'll be mostly neutral with a few light and a few dark like the mission/battle cards?

    My theory is they will be the Magic equivilent of Enchantments, only they will effect all tatoine units, or all naboo units, etc.

    That's my thought Itchi. This game is really starting to look like a mix between Magic and SWCCG :) Now all we need are weapons and land and we'll be set :p
