Of late I have been looking at doing some of the deck types for Dissidents keyword, type of decks. I noticed that at this point there does not seem to be one for the Cardiassian's or Romulan's.

Most of the others that I have found have a unique ship or some part of a factions history. So I wanted to know if I might have missed something or if maybe these two groups have a deck type achievement for dissidents and it might one of the hidden achievement.

When I looked at the Romulan dissidents, I thought they might be tied to the reunification episodes of TNG. The Cardiassians however seem to be from various episodes of TNG or DS 9 or some variation there of all the Trek shows.

Anyone have any thoughts on having a deck type for either of these groups.

Thanks

Are you looking for it to be story-centric or gameplay-focussed?

Definitely a tier one deck in its day.

True enough. The issue is it's a real dicey proposition to bring a 2HQ deck in a world where every NeuNeuDominion deck is rolling with Provoke Interstellar Incident.

Yes. When you design cards to make your favorite affiliation super awesome and immune to everything, it shouldn't be a surprise that they dominate the meta.

Unfortunately, if it's *Not* your favorite affiliation, then you might not like your options if you want to win.

The [Car] Dissidents have a lot of 1-cost personnel, and Elim Garak downloads For Cardassia!. You can go for three 30 points missions and rely on the interrupt to get you the last 10.

Sadly [Rom] Dissidents don't have any sort of unifying mechanic, or even a unifying story theme. They're split between personnel from Spock's Underground and Romulan supporters of Shinzon's coup (though weirdly not Shinzon or his Reman companions).

Thanks to all for the information and ideas. As it was pointed out that there is not a unifying theme for the Romulans and that the Cardiassians have a lot of 1 cosr personnel.

I think for now that I will keep this in mind for some future deck and work on some other projects as our group has just started our league season.

Angain, thanks for the help everyone.
