Card of the Week: Ahsoka Tano (F)

This week’s card comes from the upcoming TCW: Battle Lines expansion. Last week was the 10th anniversary of Ahsoka’s character first being revealed. Ahsoka Tano (F) is one of 4 new versions featured in the Battle Lines set. This Stealth version is meant to pair well with Anakin Skywalker (X), and her game text makes her immune to any negative speed and power effects, which means she also has the ability to cut through Shields. This expansion will also include a variety of support cards for Ahsoka, for both her offensive and defensive capabilities.

Card of the Week: Anakin Skywalker (X)

This week’s card comes from the upcoming TCW: Battle Lines expansion. This version of Anakin Skywalker features the 2 new keywords being introduced in Battle Lines.  Ambush and Protect are both activated after you pay the activation cost as follows:

Pay Cost -> Ambush X (If your opponent deploys, moves, or puts a unit into this arena, this unit does X dice of damage to that unit.)

Pay Cost -> Protect X (Prevent up to X damage to one of your other units in this arena.)

Ambush works like Retaliate, with a cost that you pay to activate whenever a unit is deployed, moved, or put into this arena. Ambush is also an effective way to help counter multi-arena units that can move arenas. Protect is basically a combination of Evade and Intercept, allowing you to protect your other units in the same arena.

Card of the Week: Vector

This week’s card is from the rapidly approaching TOR: Days and Nights expansion. This Vector Event makes sure your unique units won’t contest with your opponent’s. If you know that your opponent’s favorite deck is heavy on a specific expansion, Vector can also make your opponent feel the pain every time one of their favored expansion units is deployed or put into an arena. This might encourage your opponent to bring more diverse decks in the future, using cards from multiple eras and expansions.
