On paper, I really like this vs. Dengaroo.

Strong range three opening salvo from Miranda (though mitigated somewhat by Countermeasures) with maneuverability to keep the Jumps at range 3 - and in a manner of speaking Corran's double-tap ability cancels out Dengar's - but it doesn't really, since Dengar will always be on the winning end of that exchange with Zuckus/Countermeasures and superior hull and shield.

That, and that single agility on the K-Wing can make for a short game vs. a list that can burst as much damage as Dengaroo can.

Still - the old math of 'don't put more than one or two upgrades on your ship' is pretty much put to rest when the #2 squad in the world is absolutely crammed with secondary weapons piled onto 1 ship.

I thought about getting out of X-Wing this year, but builds like these and the new viable options coming out pulled me back in. It's a really good time to be an X-Wing jock.
