International Day of Peace

by Ross Fertel, Director of Second Edition

21st September 2019

This update is a day late(and briefer than usual) owing to Sacrifice of Angels being revealed on the site.


Rob S played a TOS Beginner Deck II.  This deck focuses on simple cards and only has four cards that aren’t personnel or ships in the draw deck.  Bob Geis played a Next Generation deck called Recurring Character.  This deck focused on solving but had a few tricks relating to various Matching Commanders of the Enterprise-D to get around the corner.  Lucas Thompson played Maquis Beginner Deck II While the Maquis have some shenanigans in their arsenal, this deck takes it a bit easy.  It does include Biogenic Weapon, but isn’t nearly as aggressive as it can be.  Cayenne Geis played a Deep Space Nine Next Generation deck called Combo-st Heap v2.  Comparing it to the previous version, the total amount of cards is the same, but the line between the two factions is walked very nicely so as not to get ‘mana-screwed,’ to borrow a term from another game.  Chris O’Connell won the day by going pure Next Generation with a deck called Taking the D.  There are quite a few favorites for the decktype included.


Leslie McGInty played a Big Fat Borg Deck and with a draw deck of ninety plus a dilemma pile of sixty, that’s an accurate description.  It may seem unwieldly, but there is enough in the deck to help cycle to the good stuff as needed.  Avery Matteson played DS9 for Avery leaning very much into Rainbow Deep Space Nine.  Daniel Matteson played a Next Generation deck called What’s a Paladin? Rick Kinney played a Bajoran/Romulan deck called Murder Incorporated with a lot of Non-Aligned support.  Looking it over, the Non-Aligned cards outnumber the rest and the ships are entirely Non-Aligned.  If you’ve been waiting for the right assassin deck, this might something to look at.  How did it go?  Find out in his Tournament Report.  Robert McGinty openly asked Are Cardassians Good?  With a deck that certainly makes the case for checking them out making strong use of several advantages they have access to.  Sean O’Reilly played Intelligent Cardassians which makes room for capturing as much as it does Intelligence.  Ted Reebel won the day with a Borg deck called More Dissidents taking advantage of The New Resistance and Reprimand.


Looking ahead, there are tournaments in Roseville, Minnesota; Winter Park, Florida; Atlanta Georgia and a double header in Camberwell, Greater London this weekend.
