This week’s flashback is to a classic card from the 2004 Return of the Jedi expansion, with remastered high-res cards by IDC member EasyHaechOven available to download. This set introduced the Hidden Cost keyword to the game, forever changing the dynamics of how units can enter into play. Since that time, the Meditate, Alternative Cost, and Reduced Cost keywords have all built upon that Hidden Cost legacy.
Rogues & Scoundrels Flashback + New Academy Theme

Flashback: Bo-Katan Kryze
To coincide with her return on The Mandalorian, this week’s flashback is to all the versions of Bo-Katan Kryze made for the game so far. Her C version from the Fires of Rebellion expansion is the first time Bo-Katan wields the Darksaber.
Flashback: Zillo Beast (A)
This year, we’re bringing back the flashback feature, starting with a look back on Zillo Beast, from the A Galaxy Divided expansion, in honor of a recent tie-in to Zillo Beast lore. When paired with untap and/or Upkeep removal cards, Zillo can be a potent force in the Ground arena. Thick scales will stop most damage from getting through, and unpreventable Retaliate damage will make quick work of most units who dare get too close.
Revenge of the Sith Academy Theme
This month’s Star Wars TCG Academy draft event features packs from Revenge of the Sith and Fall of the Republic. The image used for this theme is from the classic Revenge of the Sith theatrical teaser poster. If you join the event or complete any of the side quests during the month, you’ll unlock access to a sneak peek of an upcoming set.

New Clone Wars Academy Theme
The next Star Wars TCG Academy draft event is coming next week, featuring packs from the classic 2D Clone Wars series. Players will open booster packs and play with the cards they choose from those packs.

Card of the Week: Championship Podracer
This week’s card is from the Galactic Podracing Circuit mini set. This Naboo hybrid podracer is one of several different podracers featured in the podracing mini sets, along with a variety of podracer pilots, equipment, and support cards. Did you know there was once a championship podracing course on Naboo? It was introduced into lore in the Racer Rush online game when The Phantom Menace was re-released in theaters in 2012.
Card of the Week: Anakin Skywalker (A2) + Star Wars Lackey Plugin Update
This week’s card is from the recently released Boonta Eve Podrace mini set.

Also, the latest update for the Star Wars Lackey online gaming plugin featuring both podracing mini sets is now available!
