Hello everyone and it’s time for another Friday question!

Back in early November, the Continuing Committee announced a couple of bans (The Ultimate User and The Final Frontier) which should shake-up the meta a bit while Balance looks at those cards. Without the staple fall-back, easy options of [OS] decks and [1E-TNG] [Bor] decks, what are you excited to try out in this new meta? What new decks have slipped you by in recent months that you now want to try? What old decks are you excited to revive? What has you excited? Or maybe you’re saving yourself for the next new expansion?

I haven't gotten to try out much [22] stuff yet, since that was just wrapping up when I returned to the game. I've played a [Sch] deck and MACOs, but not much else. I want to see what havoc I can wreak with Orions and what possibilities there are for [22] [Kli]. I guess I should also try out Drone Control Room.

I also need to play [TE] to close out the Can't Do that in 2E achievement.

I'm looking forward to trying out [Redacted] and [Redacted] once Project Solo comes out....

I played the current [1E-TNG] [Bor] and was hated on by 2/3 of the opponents by how good it still was. I don't think it has been knocked too far off the top tier.

I don't think we took away enough toys I'm afraid.
But I seldom let meta stop me from building fun/stupid decks that can win in 4 rounds anyway...

I'll stand by my photonic boys as being great, but not broken. Expect a new one early next year from me...

I'm excited to try more Vidiian though. Next Dojo event for them.

PS, I eat TNG Borg for breakfast :wink:

i dont think it opens room for new decks, it just reduced the available options
you dont make a tier2 or 3 deck into tier1, by banning any of the tier1 decks
