Since we have the previous ruling that Suicide Attack + Cheat Death would be able to save a ship from that destroy effect, I thought about this with the new Cube upgrades. lol

Borg Cube (46)
Borg Queen (6)
Seven of Nine (4)
Borg Ablative Hull Armor (10 - 3)
Assimilation Tubules (8)
SELF-DESTRUCT SEQUENCE (5)
CHEAT DEATH #1 (5 + 1)
...then...
INDEPENDENT KLINGON FLAGSHIP (10; free scan; add tech #2 and Elite #2)
CHEAT DEATH #2 (5 + 1)

TOTAL: 98 SP

The non-bolded stuff could be changed around. But with the 2x Cheat Death, you could pull off Self-Destruct Sequence twice before actually having to suicide yourself on the third time. But with the Flagship adding +1, it's a 10-dice attack with the opponent possibly getting 0 defense. If you are in a scenario like Tholian Web, they are almost guaranteed to be in range 1-3. It's a lot less restrictive and more damaging than the DOM Suicide Attack options.

I have not playtested it but may play it one month for funsies. Thoughts?

I think you can't count on getting it off the third time. Basically all the ships have to face a 9 die attack in two turns, and another nine dice 2 turns after that if they don't take you down. Focus firing should take down your shields, and cheat death will destroy your hull, so they only need to do 2 more points of damamge to finish you off. Curious combo, I wonder if Ablative hull will take damage cards from Cheat Death? RAW it should, making it effectively useless...

I thought of this combo too when they previewed the cube. I think it would be cute, and fun -- but I suspect it wouldn't be very good. Still, I'm going to try something like it at some point after it comes out this week.

A Projected Stasis Field will look pretty scary after you perform one of your Borg-splosions.


Come to think of it, how does Projected Stasis Field work with Self Destruct Sequence (since SDS is an attack and PSF prevents attacks)?
