Release Review: Ancient Rivals

Welcome! You might notice that the format has changed from the way I used to do Release Reviews, and that’s because it’s not just me who wants to weigh in on the cards. We’re going to try something new, which I think will make the release review format more interesting, and which will incorporate many of the other contributors to the site. Starting on Monday, each pod will have its discussion published on the morning of that day: Ahsoka will be discussed Monday, Sabine on Tuesday, Han & Chewie on Wedesday, etc. So strap yourselves in, and let’s see how this Force pack fares!

Note: See below for a brief introduction from another of our newest contributors.

Ancient Rivals






Introducing AussieJedi

Welcome to my reviews of the first Force pack of the Opposition Cycle; Ancient Rivals. I hope to bring some new ideas to the “table” and look objectively at the cards which make up our beloved game. Feel free to agree or disagree with what I have to say and please let me know what you think, I am always up for looking at things in a different way, its a way for me to improve as a player/reviewer.
For something different, I have included a little “pairing” with each set to something already existing in the game. Much like a food pairing I thought it would be fun to throw a sometimes wacky pairing to encourage a new deckbuild or maybe begin a new decktype; who knows.
Feel free to send me a message to my Facebook account, or find me on the forums as AussieJedi, or even email me on
