I actually like where this is going. I have other ideas for him that I couldn’t include.
Strong ranged deck
12 Talent Cards
Beckett – 9 cards
3x HEAVY SHOT
A4*. *HEAVY SHOT does double any damage, up to 6 total.
3x QUICK SHOT
A3. Playing this card does not count as an action.
2x TRICK SHOT
A3*. *Any defense card is discarded, effects are ignored and defender takes full damage.
If Val is alive, move Beckett and Val up to 4 spaces each, and draw 2 cards. If Val has been destroyed, Beckett does 3 damage to all characters he can attack, including allies.
Val – 3 cards
2x CRACK SHOT
A5. Draw a card.
1x HELL OF A RIDE
Val and all characters adjacent to Val take damage equal to the health that Val has remaining before playing this card. Val is destroyed.
Inspiration: Beckett is an interesting character and also a very skilled shooter with a quick draw and some gun tricks. Between TRICK SHOT and SURVIVOR, I’m trying to capture his sneaky, out-for-himself personality. There’s little evidence in the movie that Beckett really reacts to Val’s death, but it’s a fun mechanic for a deck. Maybe I could build out that feeling a little further by dropping Val and just giving him 2 generic “crew” which are essentially Val and Rio, and freeing up 3 more card slots for him. In this version, I like the way Val forces you to attack her, giving Beckett some defense of sorts, and time to build up an arsenal. His shots are nasty, but a Yellow Deck with no power defense is never going to be that good. Her card looks overpowered but I honestly doubt it will ever go off for much — but I admit it will be a NPE when it does. Let’s get feedback on this version.
