Star Wars Destiny Tournament Meta and Top 4 Lists

Star Wars Destiny Tournament Meta and Top 4 Lists

Ritchie McAlley1 comment

This weekend at JustPlay we had our Christmas Party, part of which was a Destiny tournament which turned out to be quite sizeable at 16 players! A brilliant showing - the free cake might have made all the difference!

The structure we have been running for all of our Destiny events so far has been the following

  • Swiss Pairing
  • 75 minute matches
  • Each match is best of three games
  • At the end of the round time, players take 5 more turns after the currently active player has finished his turn

So with 16 players, we played 4 rounds of Swiss with a cut to top 4.

Players getting stuck in on round 1!

We had a really varied field taking part in the event, with some surprising decks having good success - the Destiny meta will be a varied one, not just Han/Rey and Vader/Raider as some people would have you believe! Here's a meta breakdown from the event:

  • Elite General Grievous, Count Dooku
  • Elite General Grievous, Jango Fett
  • Elite Padme, Rebel Trooper x2
  • Elite Kylo Ren, Storm Trooper x2
  • Darth Vader, Storm Trooper x2
  • Elite Kylo Ren, General Grievous
  • Elite General Veers, Nightsister x2
  • Bala-Tik, Nightsister, Storm Trooper x2 
  • Elite Leia Organa, Elite Rey
  • Elite Han Solo, Leia Organa
  • Elite Grievous, Kylo Ren
  • Elite Rey, Padawan x2
  • Elite Kylo Ren, Darth Vader
  • Nightsister x2, Storm Trooper x2
  • Elite Rey, Elite Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Elite Rey, Elite Han Solo 

After 4 rounds of Swiss the final standings looked like this:

Here are the decklists from the top 4 competitors:

Ian and Phil made it to the finals beating the top two Swiss finishers - both semi finals were rematches from the Swiss rounds that both of the winners had previously lost. A Hero vs Villain final was on the cards, and you can check it out below on our YouTube channel - there's also a winners' interview and deck tech!

Thanks once again for reading and watching! Follow us on Facebook and YouTube for even more Destiny content coming up soon!

Dude did not get his two shields at the beginning of the game during the finals match for losing the roll and having the other battlefield chosen.
