Between Shadows Review Dark

You came last Monday for the light side review, and now it’s time for the Dark Side review. I’m going to be up front about this: I’m not good at Scum & Villainy. I’ve never been good at Scum & Villainy. I’m going to play it for a while thanks to this box, but my heart is really with the Sith and I expect I’d play them whether they were good or not (well, not entirely true, since my preferred LS faction is Rebels and my current deck is mono-Jedi). That said, I do think there’s at least one good mono-Scum build now, and I want to know what it is. So let’s find out what the Black Sun sold us today!

Between Shadows Review Light

Welcome back everyone! It’s been a long time since we’ve had some new content, and the World Championships kept the community buzzing until December, but now that the holidays and the long wait for the Jedi are over, it’s time to get right back into the thick of things. Consider this my resolution to produce more content for everyone this year, starting with everyone’s favorite… the set review! Since a deluxe expansion has so much content, I’m splitting it between light side and dark side, and will be putting them out together this week. To begin, we look to our favorite hero…

I decided to have a break from playing Nazdreg

at our tournaments and went with Colonel Straken instead.  I went for the Space Marines alliance, as I was very keen to play cards like Exterminatus and Daring Assault Squad.

In my previous article I discussed the five cards that make up Ku’gath and his signature squad, and went through their strengths and weaknesses as I see them.  For this article I have made a list of cards that I think at first glance have some synergy with one or more of these cards and I am going to look at them in a bit more depth.

After the events of Worlds 2014, there’s been a lot of discussion about the meta, with much of it focusing on Packmaster Kith

 (the top performer during Swiss) and Captain Cato Sicarius (the top performer during elims and eventual first/second place winners). This article aims to discuss the matchup between those two decks in greater depth.

I will get this out the way immediately; Chaos were my favourite faction in the tabletop game.  So it will come as no surprise that ever since The Scourge warpack was previewed I have started thinking about a deck containing Ku’gath.

My early attempts at a Zarathur, High Sorcerer

Chaos deck were full of elite daemons and the games with them seemed to be very dependant on good draws and if Y’varn was in the lineup or not.  This gave me a somewhat unsatisfying experience, so I experimented with other factions and I have been playing Orks as my main deck since.

With the release of The Scourge on the near horizon, I thought it would be time to re-visit Chaos.  I have now played many games of Conquest, including several local tournaments, so I can look at the cards with a more experienced view than when I first read the preview article.
