Why tweak Boba Fett?  Actually we didn’t do a thing to Boba. We just gave him a minor of closer association in Dengar, with a level of strength commensurate with other personality minors. The change also gives Boba Fett his rightful place as the most powerful ranged deck in the Geektopia universe.

Why break Boba and Greedo up? One advantage of having a set of 40+ decks is that you can make major corrections to the originals, such as splitting up two popular characters so each can star in his own deck with characters he is associated with. Greedo doesn’t even appear in the same movie as Boba Fett, let alone the same scene. Dengar not only appeared in the same scene as Boba Fett, but it was the scene in The Empire Strikes Back where both were originally introduced. Dengar and Boba also have a working relationship in the extended universe. Dengar is probably who Boba should have been with all along, while Greedo should have had his own deck all along, but while there wasn’t enough room for both Dengar and Greedo in a set of 12 decks, there is plenty of room for everyone in a set of 50+.

Tweaks: Dengar replaces Greedo with 10 HP (instead of 7), the same basic cards and 3 new talent cards (listed below):

1x UNCONTROLLED RAGE
A7.  Dengar takes 2 damage.

1x GRUDGE
A5. If Han Solo is target, draw 3 cards. If another named character is the target, draw 2 cards.

1x PAYBACK
D*.  Dengar takes full damage from the attack.  If Dengar is still alive, attacker takes equal damage.

Theme: Big ranged attacks
Path to Victory: Any combination of big offense cards
Strengths: Big ranged attacks, high direct damage, THERMAL DETONATOR changes the way people play you, strong minor, hit-and-run
Weaknesses: Low staying power
Strategy: Use Dengar to deal damage and draw fire early, hit with Boba’s big damage from afar.
Test Level:
Very High
Tier: 2

Notes: Boba is not a bad 2v2 player in the original ED with the menace of THERMAL DETONATOR and his arsenal of big attacks but Greedo always weighed him down like a green albatross around his neck. Pairing him with the dangerous Dengar instead of the pathetic Greedo gives Boba a major boost. Dengar is a viable threat who can do damage, draw fire away from Boba, and potentially absorb a fair amount of damage with 10 HP — all the things a personality minor generally does, but that Greedo never really did. Boba retains his unmatched ranged offensive arsenal, a very valuable asset in 2v2, and this is a Tier 1 deck in 3v3. With 2 legitimate ranged threats on the board, these bounty hunters are a nasty, mid-tier duo in any set.

Want more Boba Fett?

umondy did a complete deck with Boba & Dengar, if you’re interested.

Moonsylver did Fett with 2 Stormtroopers.  Nothing new design-wise here, just a deck for Fett himself without Greedo, thus all 12 Talent cards to himself, including Jango’s FLAMETHROWER and FIRE UP THE JETPACK, plus a modified A7 MISSILE LAUNCH.

There is also the 10YA Tournament set of tweaks of Boba & Greedo, with a slight tweak to SUDDEN ARRIVAL to help Greedo.
