All the Duchess's Men

Created by:

All the Duchess’s Men is a 60-card Jedi/Mandalorian/Clone hybrid deck, created by the IDC, centered on 2 key cards from the Battle Lines expansion: Obi-Wan Kenobi W and Duchess Satine Kryze C. While the (A) and (B) versions of the Duchess are primarily meant for pure Mandalorian decks, her (C) version in this deck is designed to buff Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan’s W version is the heart of this deck, as his Armor and 9 health makes him a stable presence in the Character arena. Satine significantly buffs his offensive capabilities, giving him both Critical Hit and Fury. Obi-Wan’s (U) version can be used for an additional stacking buff, and he also works well with both the Duchess and Anakin. Anakin Skywalker (X) adds some Stealth and even more Protection. Rex and Gregor offer great offensive and defensive flexibility. Most Characters here have a Protect ability that will help keep the Duchess alive. In the Ground arena, you have a bunch of cheap, fast Mandalorian speeders offering even more damage prevention, and the 501st as your main fighting force. The AT-RT Squad and Speeder Subordinates offer support. In Space, both versions of Coronet act as support cards, for either build point/Equipment gain or boosts for Obi and Satine. Hand of Justice gives you Force and card draw capabilities, along with a useful captivity counter removal. Twilight is great defensively and can shut down your opponent’s Battle card capabilities for a turn if you have 2 leftover build points to spend. This deck also includes non-unit cards such as Shield Gauntlets, which help shield both your Clone and Mandalorian units, and its Deflect will work great with your AT-RT squads. Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Resolve is the perfect addition to Obi-Wan W, as it makes him stronger even if your opponent is hitting him hard. For Battle cards, Anakin’s Methods is useful to see what cards your opponent has, and if you should bother paying for Twilight‘s Battle card stopper. It will also tap a damaged unit, which pairs well with the 501st’s “move a damage counter” ability. Qui-Gon’s Guidance increases your Focus, can’t be disrupted with Obi-Wan, and also contains a useful Meditate option. Several Resources could work well with this deck, but the most straightforward is Clone Production Line. This will give you access to Hidden Cost for your Clones, which you’ll be able to afford with the extra Force generated by the Festival of Light Event. Remember, your Event and all Subordinates are stored off to the side in your supply, opposite your deck. For a counterpart Dark Side deck focusing on Maul, check out the Shadow Collective deck.
