  1. Greetings, FanZ faithful! It’s been over a month since our last update — things have been busy out there in the real world. Thankfully, there is a ton of great content being posted from the fans, notably Random Number Gaming and FanZ Warriors Gather. Be sure to check them out on a regular basis to get your content fix! This blog will see a lot of activity around new set releases, mostly in the forms of previews (we are only a few weeks out from Legends previews). You’ll also get event dates, top decklists from completed events, and teasers of the Kai event winners’ custom cards that will be released in future sets. Don’t forget the CRD & Frozen List will be updated after the completion of the West Kai event, so that the final 3 Kai events of the season have a fresh feel & meta. (In addition, Set 9, Legends, will impact the last few Kai events!) East Kai’s Time to Shine Our second official Kai event – East Kai – is fast approaching! It will be held in Glassboro NJ at The Comic Book Store on Saturday, May 27. Click this link for the official event page. Expect a solid turnout with some of the big playgroups in the Northeast making the trip. I’ve even heard some rumors that a new MP from Legends may be on display! Check out a photo of the trophy: Legends say the trophy is filled with the tears of the Dennis Brothers. Only the champion will know for sure. Kai Event Schedule We have the official dates of the remaining Kai events, with the exception of Grand Kai (Gencon). Once the exact event date for that tournament is finalized, we will post it! East Kai – Black – Saturday May 27, The Comic Book Store Glassboro NJ West Kai – Red – June 17, Forgotten Path Games Vacaville CA South Kai – Orange – July 15, Showcase Comics & Collectibles Slidell LA Supreme Kai – Saiyan – July 29, Paradox Comics-N-Cards Fargo ND Grand Kai – Namekian – Gencon 2017 (exact day TBD) Indianapolis IN Australia events are still in the works – once we have concrete info, it will be shared.

  2. Saiyan Rampaging Trunks is a fantastic deck. Saiyan is fine and amazing at what it does.
  3. Someone also go one of these:
  4. In all actuality, if the game would have had more traits from GT, most of the cards that were printed would be completely different.

  8. Here are some more updates for the FanZ Kai Events! We are working out details between stores to determine which location will host the 3rd and final Kai event of this half of the season, before Legends releases with a new CRD update and Frozen List update. Remember, the winner of each event gets to create a styled card matching the style of the Kai event in an upcoming FanZ set! North Kai – Blue – Saturday March 25th, Xtreme Games Lindenhurst IL East Kai – Black – Saturday May 20th, The Comic Book Store Glassboro NJ West Kai – Red – Date TBD, Forgotten Path Games Vacaville CA South Kai – Orange – Date TBD, Showcase Comics & Collectibles Slidell LA Grand Kai – Namekian – Gencon 2017 (exact day TBD) Indianapolis IN Supreme Kai – Saiyan – Date TBD, Paradox Comics-N-Cards Fargo ND Click to read the full article...

  10. Elite Darth Vader (Awakenings) Tusken Raider Battleground: Maz's Castle Supports: (2) 2x Backup Muscle Events: (16) 2x Isolation 2x Electroshock 2x A Quarter Portion 2x Deflect 2x He Doesn't Like You 2x Force Strike 2x Bait and Switch 2x Friends in Low Places Upgrades: (12) 2x Fast Hands 2x Force Speed 2x Lure of Power 2x Vibroknife 2x Lightsaber 2x Kylo Ren's Lightsaber This is a starting shell for my Vader/Raider in a post SOR meta. This version of the deck isn't running a Holocron package but is instead running a ton of Melee damage in an attempt to make it more focused as well as most of it's upgrade dice are now playable on both characters. Force Strike and Bait and Switch give the deck the ability to deal consistent damage. Friends in Low Places allows the deck to play around removal by giving hand knowledge and discarding removal options to allow Vader's Dice to stay in the pool. The deck has a ton of spot removal, with 10 different cards - A Quarter Portion is Electroshock without requiring a spot at the drawback of giving the opponent a resource. I want to make room potentially for High Ground or Feel Your Anger. The upgrades are all focused on Melee Damage or gaining more actions/resolving dice quicker. Lure of Power seems very interesting as it can resolve for any side you roll. Most of the time it's going to be Melee damage or resources. Seems pretty solid. It will be interesting to see if this variant is competitive or not.
  11. Elite Palpatine Battleground: Frozen Wastes Upgrades: (12) 2x Force Speed 2x Force Illusion 2x Lure of Power 2x Force Lightning 2x Force Choke 2x Sith Holocron Events: (18) 2x High Ground 2x Isolation 2x Feel Your Anger 2x Manipulate 2x Deflect 2x Overconfidence 2x No Mercy 2x Premonitions 2x Rise Again This is the starting shell for my Elite Palpatine deck. I had initially thought Palpatine might be unplayable after more spoilers were revealed, until I saw Force Illusion and Premonitions. Since the deck runs two copies of everything, Premonitions can set up a free Rise Again to give the deck more longevity. The deck has a TON of blanking the opponent's dice/removal options. Can't wait to test these SOR decks.
  12. Elite Jabba with Elite Asajj Ventress Post SOR Battleground: Command Center Upgrades: (14) x2 Force Choke x2 Force Throw x2 Force Speed x2 Fast Hands x2 Mind Probe x2 Vibroknuckles x2 Sith Holocron Events: (16) x2 All In x2 Deflect x2 Electroshock x2 Feel Your Anger x2 He Doesn't Like You x2 Isolation x2 Bait and Switch x2 A Quarter Portion Inspired in part by the current Jabba/Dooku decks, this deck is all about Milling to the extreme - with a ton of spot removal and using Asajj's ability to force extra discards for re-rolls. Fast Hands seems great with Jabba, allowing the possibility to instant mill two potentially on his activation. The deck has 12 removal events designed to slow the game down (and combined with discard, make it very hard for the opponent to advance his game state.
