AT-ST

Minor(s): 2 Scout Troopers

This is an interesting deck that we break out only once in a while, considered more “fun” than core.  It plays like a standard deck and character, just with 23 hit points.

AT-ST
23 HP
Blaster
22 cards
Yellow Deck

2 Scout Troopers
4 HP Each
Blaster
9 cards
Weak Ranged Minor Deck

AT-ST – 12 Talent Cards

4x TWIN BLAST
A3*, *After attacking, AT-ST immediately attacks the
same character again with an attack value of 3,
without using an action. This attack may be
defended.

2x CONCENTRATED BLAST
A8.  If AT-ST attacked with your 1st action, you may
not play this card as your 2nd action. If you play this
as your 1st action, AT-ST may not attack with your
second action.

3x IMPERIAL SURGE
Move AT-ST and each Scout Trooper up to 4
spaces each.

2x STOMP
AT-ST does 3 damage to any one adjacent character.
If you have taken an action that was not an attack
this turn, then playing this card does not count as an
action.

1x IMPERIAL SUPPLIES
Playing this card requires 2 actions and you must play
this card as your 1st action. Draw 5 cards or recover up
to 5 damage between all of your characters, or any
combination up to 5.

23 Hit Points?  If any character should have more hit points than Darth Vader, it’s a 27-foot tall machine with armor plating. It should probably have 50 hit points but 1) That would not be any fun to play in Epic Duels and 2) 23 is the most that Deck Designer will accommodate. That’s enough for this character and with his Yellow Deck and lack of power defense, it’s not hard to get it down to 0.

Theme: Action management
Path to Victory: IMPERIAL SURGE + STOMP + CONCENTRATED BLAST or multiple TWIN LASER BLAST
Strengths: High attacks, no-action attacks, high HP
Weaknesses: Weak defense and minors make it an easy target, can’t do much damage in a single turn
Strategy: Wear down your opponent with no action attacks, finish with big ones
Test Level: Low
Tier: 3

Inspiration: I saw a cool AT-ST figure at a comic and gaming store in Ann Arbor, MI.  It looked about Epic Duels scale and though I didn’t buy it, I kept thinking about how it would look on my Epic Duels board. Eventually I bought it and made a deck that tries manipulating how you use your actions.
