I have an opportunity to buy 1 core, 1 EoD and the entire Hoth cycle. I won't be investing any further so my question is: with casual play with the same 2 people is there any overpowered/underrepresented factions. with almost 1000 cards I'm assuming the opportunity to tweak decks/replayability is very good. any reason not to jump on board without 2 core and 2 EoD

The hoth cycle offers some good Rebel pods, and most of the other stuff is ok. A lot of the pods in the hot cycle are a bid odd, and don't fit in well with other synergies.

With one core, and one EOD the rebel deck will probably be best, as it has the most consistent synergies between core and both cycle. Sith and Smugglers will be hit and miss, possibly really good when they get their best units, and they may not do so well when they don't. Jedi will be similar, but weaker that Sith. Navy likely has some solid synergies to be decent. Scum and villainy will probably be nearly unplayable unless you purposefully build a weaker light side deck to compensate. This situation might work if you actively build scenarios (specific deck matched to each other) rather than building the best deck possible for different factions.

It's hard to say all in all. What you are looking at I would regard as FAR from ideal for having a fun balanced pool of SWLCG cards to play with, particularly if you're really committed to not getting anything additional. I would recommend waiting for another deal, because I think that overall the decks to which you have access will be very hit and miss. People are regularly buying and selling SWLCG. I would really wait to get, ideally 2 core, 2 EOD and one of each of the Big Box expansions (except the multiplayer expansion, it's not necessary, and has limited use.)

Hey Chris,

It's great to see that there's another SW:LCG player in town! I would be happy to meet up sometime to play the game with you, and introduce you to the community of players in Ottawa if you're interested and when you're ready.

The best decks with what you've got will be Sith ft. Motti on the Dark Side, and Jedi ft. Han, Chewie and the Falcon on the Light Side. But yeah, you'll struggle with inconsistency until you get a few more expansions. A second core and EoD is advisable as well.

Cheers,

Drew

Toss in one more core set and IMO you are good to go. It's pretty much what my son and I played with for a while. It's been great. Look for the 2-core starter deck threads. Another thread also give decks for 2 cores and EoD. If you like the game, you can get a 2nd EoD. It's all gravy after that.

BTW I got the two cores, Hoth, and 2 EoD at a con flea market from a fellow for $30! It's my favorite Lcg/Ccg, and I have many. You will want more.
