Welcome back to another issue of Redemption Spoilers. Without further ado, let's get started.
I have never felt as close to walking away from Star Wars: Destiny as I did last Saturday (January 2nd 2021). Not even when the game was officially cancelled. The stealth way that whomever currently has the controls of the FFG Organized play social media account released the news that there would no rearranged World Championships and nor would Wild Horizons be released in the Echoes of Destiny event kits. This deserved a proper website announcement, because the players, their customers, often across multiple games, deserve that. I completely understand the business reasons for it and I am sure most people do and we all should have had the courtesy extended to us that our patronage has merited. The pandemic is not something anyone could, in all honestly, have predicted and especially not how paralyzing it has been, especially to things such as organized play.
It is that time of the year again, it is spoiler season. We are back with this season's series of articles focused on the second set of the SWD Continuing Committee run, Redemption. We would like to thank A Renewed Hope for sending us 3 exclusive spoilers. Without wasting any time, lets dive right in.
“I’m thrilled the Whitehouse called me as I’m working on a hip-hop concept album about someone who I think embodies hip-hop Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. You laugh but it’s true. He was born a penniless orphan in St Croix of illegitimate birth, became George Washington’s right hand man, became Treasury Secretary, caught beef with every other founding father and all on the strength of his writing, I think he embodies the word's ability to make a difference." - May 12 2009.
Now that a couple of weeks have passed since the release of A Renewed Hope’s first set, Faltering Allegiances, I am going to look at some characters who provide the most interesting deck building options in the set. Given that for ARH: Standard this set triggered rotation of some of the most powerful cards out of the format, this opens up the avenues for new deck designs. The first character I am going to look at it is Merrin - Nightsister Survivor. She is from the video game Jedi: Fallen Order, and is a big part of that storyline.
