Inspired by a few similar strategy threads (and after finally getting around to actually creating an account on Deckbuilder), I decided to start creating a few decks comprised only of cards currently in my possession. Given that to be only a single core set and the EOD expansion, that can often prove to be difficult. Either way, here's my first attempt at a competitive deck built with my limited resources. All criticism welcome.

Deck: Rebel Assault

Total Cards: (50)

Affiliation:
Jedi

Remnant of the battles from the original trilogy, the Rebels have often relied on aggressive, calculated strikes designed to cripple the Empire by engaging vital targets of opportunity.

Built around rebel starfighters and capital starships supporting a couple elite units, this deck is designed to bring maximum force to bear against Imperial forces. Winning edge battles are essential, as is inflicting as much damage possible per attack.

Just off the top of my head, Mobilize the Squadrons is a Rebel only objective and cannot be used with a Jedi affiliation card, while A Journey to Dagobah is a Jedi only.

Just double checked, and you are indeed correct on both counts. Will have to rethink this one.

Since my last attempt was technically illegal (thanks for pointing that out, FaydeShift!), let's try this again. Clearly this is my first real attempt at deckbuilding, so I'll use that as my excuse.

Rebel Assault 2.0

Deck Created with CardGameDB.com Star Wars Deckbuilder

Total Cards: (50)

Affiliation:
Rebel Alliance

Although outnumbered and lacking the vast resources of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance has often relied on calculated strikes against targets of opportunity to level the playing field.

Designed as an Assault Deck, the Rebel Alliance must rely on aggressive strikes against enemy objectives, or ideally, the Death Star itself via the Trench Run enhancement. Both fate and event cards are optimized to win critical edge battles, and damage enemy objectives further.

Objective: (10)
1x The Defense of Yavin 4 (Core 8-1)
1x Mission Briefing (Core 9-1)
1x Fleeing the Empire (Core 10-1)
1x The Rebel Fleet (Core 11-1)
1x Draw Their Fire (Core 12-1)
1x Mobilize the Squadrons (Core 13-1)
1x Decoy at Dantooine (Core 14-1)
1x Hit and Run (Core 18-1)
1x To Arms! (Edge of Darkness 78-1)
1x Opening Moves (Edge of Darkness 79-1)

Unit: (23)
1x Red Two (Core 8-2)
1x Y-Wing (Core 8-3)
1x Mon Mothma (Core 9-2)
1x Battlefield Engineers (Core 9-3)
1x A-Wing (Core 9-4)
1x Leia Organa (Core 10-2)
1x Fleet Officer (Core 10-3)
1x Home One (Core 11-2)
1x Y-Wing (Core 11-3)
1x Repair Droid (Core 11-4)
1x Admiral Ackbar (Core 12-2)
1x X-Wing Escort (Core 12-3)
1x X-Wing (Core 12-4)
1x X-Wing (Core 13-2)
1x Rookie Pilot (Core 13-3)
1x Wookiee Navigator (Core 14-2)
1x Rebel Trooper (Core 14-3)
1x Secret Informant (Core 18-2)
1x Secret Informant (Core 18-3)
1x Sullustan Weapon Tech (Edge of Darkness 78-2)
1x Sullustan Weapon Tech (Edge of Darkness 78-3)
1x Massassi Temple Lookout (Edge of Darkness 79-2)
1x Massassi Temple Lookout (Edge of Darkness 79-3)

Enhancement: (11)
1x Astromech Droid Upgrade (Core 8-4)
1x Hidden Outpost (Core 8-5)
1x Heavy Blaster Emplacement (Core 9-5)
1x Stolen Plans (Core 10-4)
1x Hidden Outpost (Core 11-5)

1x Heat of Battle (Core 18-4)

Sweet deck, but 2.0 includes cards from EoD. I was under the impression this was core only.

...sighhh...

It appears I left "single Core and EOD set" out of the title. Chalk it up to roughly 10 months of sleep deprivation after the birth of our daughter. One of these years I'll catch up, I swear.
