Spirit of Rebellion Spoilers

A few gems spoiled from the upcoming Star Wars: Spirit of Rebellion set

It’s really sweet to see a new Darth Vader so soon, I was personally getting really bored of the old one since everyone seems to be running him.

obi-wan

Obi-Wan is very cool, but is however not the counterpart to Palpatine. Perhaps Yoda will rise up to the challenge? The first thing that comes to mind with Obi-Wan is clearly to use One with the Force in your deck. It’s almost an auto-include at this point.

rise-again

Rise Again is great design that’s not inherently super powerful and encourgaes you to want to discard something like a Mind Probe or Force Throw early to re-roll or to discard between rounds, knowing you can later get more value out of it.

The chamber is very similar to Frozen Wastes with a twist: its effect will work next turn, making it a little trickier. They also mentioned they wanted to make battlefields more impactful in future sets, so claiming will probably be higher on your priority list rather than re-rolling some dice that are less relevant to the board state.

They also mentioned that the 2 missing points from Palpatine would maybe get to be used in future sets, but much more into the future. It’s really cool to get a few newer spoilers here and there for what is probably going to be one of the most anticipated CCG sets this year. They just keep us wanting more and more until the product releases in April.
