The news that Covert Missions will be delayed until sometime in the first quarter of 2020 certainly dampened the spirits of everyone looking forward to shouting “Stand by alert! Death Star approaching!” at our opponents while showing off our new Destroy the Death Star plot. But while we have to wait a little longer than we may have liked before trying out the new win conditions, we can spend this time productively.
Before we ever learn that the Force can be used to stop blaster bolts in mid-air, move a user safely through space, or scramble the brains of droid-seeking stormtroopers, we get our first description of this mystical energy from Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope: “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power.

The NOVA Open hosted the Star Wars Destiny U.S. Grand Championships on Aug. 31st - Sept. 1st.
Over 160 players took part in the 2019 European Continental Championships in August. Our friends at YOUR Destiny were kind enough to publish decklists for the Top 16. In this article we will again focus solely on cards in decks (namely downgrades, upgrades, supports and events) and not the characters, battlefields and plots which were used, just like we did for Gen Con.
The first truly major Star Wars: Destiny tournament of the Spark of Hope meta recently took place at Gen Con. Now that the decklists have been published in various places by various content creators, we can take a look at which cards showed up in the 22 decks that were played in the Top Cut and leave it up to readers to determine whether or not the meta was diverse.
