This is my current rebel deck along with mission briefing (mon mothma pod)...

Thinking of replacing mission briefing and trying to decide with what

My top 3 choices are in order..

1) Hit And Run (fate cards, decent objective) and Ewoks (they are really good used at the right time but Yub Yub can be hit or miss.. the enhancement card that effectively lets you focus an attacking unit is also amazing.

2) Ackbar - Its a trap! Decent set. the shielding enhancement is great to protect weak fighters. Ackbar is a nice surprise and/or meta to keep your opponent from deploy a bunch of chuds. And it adds more vehicles which are great ...especially xwing escort

3) Red Five Pod - Its great for red 5 which is a beast but it stinks that doublestrike is character only

Any thoughts?

Mobilize the Squadrons is a nice choice for the additional Rebel Assaults, Trench Run, and of course the objective itself.

While I think the Mon Mothma pod is REALLY good, if you were replacing it, I'd pick the Hit & Run / Ewok option.

I would also consider Questionable Contacts. It's not only a great all around pod, but you can use Swindled to trigger Leia!

Though the other suggests are also fine. You should try them all and see what works best for you.

its currently in my jedi deck...lukes also a decent choice for rebel deck but im trying to keep 4 complete decks atm


the mon mothma pod is ok...

the blaster enhancements are good if you draw them early. Once your opponent has units how to deal with its they arn't much of a threat.

Id much rather have the abiltiy to tap an attacker.

Mon mothma herself is meh imho...shes just "ok" at a bunch of stuff not steller at anything

If you replace fleeing the empire with journey to dagobah, and keep mission briefing, you'll have the deck I used at regionals. I was pretty happy with most of what comes in JtD (red 5, R2, target of opportunity), and the objective itself is great since it lets you fetch hoth operations to replace it.

So yeah, see how Red 5 fits your deck. I'm picking between Ackbar and Leia to replace Mothma, myself.
