I have x2 base game, Millenium Falcon, Firespray, x2 tie advance x2 B wing... My wife playes rebel and I play imperial. I like to try to balance my purchases. I plan on getting x1 regular tie and x1 xwing in next purchase.... What else? I think maybe phantoms for imperial... not sure for rebel. I think maybe something with good movement. A wing?... I'm not too familiar with newer stuff and feel like Y wings might be too similar to B Wings... What else would anyone recommend. I'm trying to fill my cart for 100$ Shipping... More big ships maybe/ Not sure what has great agility for rebels but doesn't suck (As I hear A Wings do....)

Just to point out, there are two different "base games". The original Core and the Force Awakens Core. Which ones do you have?

I play Imperials myself so I am not an expert in Rebel stuff. I know the YT-2400 is a good ship and I see Corran in the E-Wing periodically. I think that's one of those ships that is only really used with one pilot though. When I see A-Wings, I see them in multiples. K-Wing looks good and can move very fast. Y-Wings have turrets which gives them a different feel than B's I think.

On the Imperial side... Imperial Veterans gives you a lot of good stuff, and a TIE Interceptor (either blister or from Imperial Aces) is a good ship. TIE Defenders are popular right now with the new titles from Veterans. Phantom is good. TIE/fo is good and comes with great cards, you can run a strong setup just out of a blister with Juke & Comm Relay. Inquisitor's TIE is very good too (TIE Adv. Prototype).

Since you have the TIE Advanced, you could also consider picking up a copy of TIE/x1 + Advanced Targeting Computer from eBay. It will cost about $14 w/ shipping but will make Vader way more useful.

Check your local Target for core sets. They occasionally have them in the clearance section.
If you get the Phantom, be aware of what a PITA it is. If you want your wife to like you I suggest getting the YT-2400 so she can have Dash to beat up your phantom with. The Phantom pushed the meta in an ugly direction, so be sure it is something you truly want.

Or he can just proxy it if he isn't doing tournaments.

I will say that you might end up needing to buy a few more Imperials over another Rebel. Tie Fighters are pretty cheap and you can fit a lot more Imperials in a list than you can Rebels.
