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.
Ships and space battles are an iconic part of Star Wars lore, to the point that we often associate specific ships with their own pilots - be it Luke Skywalker and his X-wing, Darth Vader's iconic TIE Advanced, or Hera in the cockpit of the Ghost, once the connection between a pilot and their ship is formed, it almost feels strange seeing someone different at the controls.
The Star Wars Destiny World Championships were held Oct. 18-20, 2019 in Minnesota. FFG's Matt Holland (#MattHollandForPresident) shared a file with the general public that had the decklists for everyone who played in the event.
Nothing turns the wheels in my head like spoilers for a new set, and the most recent releases are no different. As soon as I see a mildly interesting character, support, or (in today's case) a plot, I run to swdestinydb and start constructing decks.
By all accounts, 2019 Worlds for Star Wars Destiny was a big success. As we started to dive into the data from the decks that made the top cut, JediGeekGirl had an idea she asked me to explore and it's led to this brief article.
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.
