The Power of 2: Bajorans

by Ross Fertel, Chant

2nd April 2024

The Continuing Committee is focusing on the Bell Riots of 2024 with their Organized Play Promos. For Second Edition, they all focus on personnel with a printed cost of two. The Committee is supporting this in several ways, going so far as to have not one but two series of tournament promos that all cost two covering all affiliations. Let's go deeper as we look into each affiliation/ faction and see how these personnel can improve play.

Disclaimer: While Benjamin Sisko and Julian Bashir are key cards in several decks, this series will look at all the cards for the affiliation. Note that your mileage may vary.

Teero Anaydis, Misguided VedekThe biggest group that costs two for the Bajoran affiliation is the Bajoran Resistance with only eight personnel not having a printed cost of two, three of whom have versions that cost two. It may have been some time since there was a Bajoran Resistance renaissance, but when their ranks include Kulan, Militia Soldier and Treyam, Militia Soldier who can both be played at a discount and boosted. Their ranks also include Li Nalas, Legend of Bajor who gives you a card draw when played and a not horribly useless for the Bajorans discard when he is killed.

If you want to go the combat route, Lupaza, Resistance Fighter will download Just Like old Times while Day Kannu, Field Colonel will grant you five points upon your glorious victory.

Outside the Bajoran Resistance, two cost personnel are prevalent in the clergy. Bariel Antos, Selfless Scapegoat from the recent Timeless expansion is in the mix along with Teero Anaydis, Misguided Vedek, both of whom have good skills. Ranjen Koral, Student of B'hala costs two as well; although you mainly want him for the ability to take a card from your discard pile into your hand, his skills will prove useful as well when it comes to mission solving.

No discussion of the Bajoran affiliation is complete without Kira and there is a quintet that costs two. Perhaps the best is Kira Nerys, Impassioned Major who rescues personnel from the brig upon using a skill to solve a mission. Another useful Kira is Kira Taban, Husband and Father who gives you points if you are behind when he is played.

Krim, Thoughtful Tactician is also in the mix with a great ability to get dilemmas under your missions at a cost of five points, only once per turn. Finally, the eminently pumpable Dukat, Pah-Wraith Puppet has a printed cost of two as well.

While one group dominates two cost Bajorans overall, there are other useful cards to protect when looking at the affiliation as a whole. Let us know in the thread below how do the Bajorans fare with the new promos? Which deck gets the biggest boost?
