Mace Windu

Minor(s): 2 Clone Troopers

“Master Windu”
Modified deck. Original Epic Duels deck by Rob Daviau and Craig Van Ness. Modifications by Geektopia.

Mace Windu
19 HP
Melee
22 Cards
Blue Deck

2x Clone Troopers
4 HP Each
Blaster
9 Cards
Weak Ranged Minor Deck

Mace – 12 Talent Cards
4x BATTLEMIND
A*/D;* * = number of cards in hand after Battlemind is played

4x MASTERFUL FIGHTING
A6, draw a card

2x WHIRLWIND ATTACK
Inflict 4 damage to any enemy Mace can attack

2x WISDOM
Move 5, draw 1

Why Tweak Mace? To make him stronger. Geektopia considers Mace the strongest duelist in the 6 movies, yet in the original SWED set, Mace is only an average deck.

Tweaks:

Replace 2x WISDOM with 2x MASTERFUL FIGHTING
Tweak 4x MASTERFUL FIGHTING from A5 to A6

Theme: Grows in strength as the battle goes on
Path to Victory: Draw to a full hand then BATTLEMIND + BATTLEMIND
Strengths: Balanced with the potential for strong attacks and strong defense, high direct damage
Weaknesses: Susceptible to opponents that make him discard or play a low-card game, weak minors
Strategy: Build up a big hand to become the strongest fighter on the battle field.
Test Level: High
Tier: 1
Notes: Same old Mace, just stronger. Tweaks boost his strength from an average deck to a sluggo that can combat the toughest foes with ample amounts of power attacks and power defense. The price is less movement, but most games, it is well worth the trade. He might be the best 1-on-1 melee fighter in the game, which was the goal.

Want more Mace?

You’re out of luck.  The original, with or without tweaks, is your only option.  Derrick Ronning has another set of tweaks.

    I like the idea of changing 2 wisdoms for 2 Masterful Fightings. I think the A6 instead of A5 may be pushing it for a standard ED set, although I know Geektopia has a power creep. How strong is he? And without the creep, would it be better to just switch the wisdoms for MF? Does Mace actually miss wisdom at all?

      Mace does occasionally miss the hit-and-run ability that having so much WISDOM gave him but it’s a great trade-off for him.

      The new “Power Level” page addresses his level of strength — right at the very top. He’s the best toe-to-toe melee combatant in the Geektopia universe and even eclipses the original Obi-Wan in this regard. However, I think the original Obi is a slightly better 2v2 deck due to the ridiculous power of FORCE CONTROL.
