Covert Missions is finally here! Yes the newest and last set has dropped, just in time for you to spend weeks locked in isolation while waiting for coronavirus to get under control.

A Star Wars: Destiny Grand Championship was held Jan. 24-26, 2020 at the Las Vegas Open. Nick Nelson (aka The Gandork) shared a file with the decklists for everyone who played in the event. Following the approach we took with other major events over the past several months, this article will just focus on the decks for players who made the Top 16 at LVO in order to compare similar amounts of data.
The much anticipated new Standard Holocron for Star Wars: Destiny dropped recently, and it's a doozy. There's a lot here to unpack and I'm sure that I won't be able to address every way things will change.
