R2-D2

R2-D2

 

An astromech droid with well-proven battle experience. R2 gained notoriety during Episode I when he saved a Naboo Fighter's shields as Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi blasted their way through the Trade Federation's blockade surrounding Naboo. He eventually wound up with Luke Skywalker, and is arguably one of the main reasons the Jedi and the Rebellion overcame the Sith and their tyrannical Empire. For more information on this resourceful little droid, go here.

Mike Maloney's R2-D2 and C-3P0 deck is a classic. There are debates about whether or not the duo belongs in a dueling game, but little debate that if you're going to include them, this deck is how you would do it.

Mike Maloney's R2-D2 & C-3P0 is an excellent deck, for sure; they'll have trouble closing the match out on their own, but they can disrupt their opponents' game quite well and give their allies the boost they need to turn the tide and secure victory. Sure, your buddy's A13 is nice, but he's only got one and his deck has no way to get it out again before the deck cycles; when you play WEAPONS COMPARTMENT, suddenly your buddy can bust it out again while your opponents are still reeling from the first time it hit. Artoo and Threepio's own relative weakness means their teamwork shenanigans are well-balanced, however. If you're looking for the best decks out there, you want this, no questions asked; even if you think R2-D2 & C-3P0 don't belong in Epic Duels, I urge you to give this a whirl anyway; I personally think the excellent quality of the deck and the iconic characters outweigh any concerns about whether they fit in (besides, this is a game where Han & Chewie have a somewhat reasonable shot at wiping the floor with Emperor Palpatine; I think canonical strength can be overlooked for the sake of a fun time). This one could've (and perhaps should've) made it into the 10YA expansion, and I encourage you to treat it like it was a part of it.

Was just reading back over some of the debate about including R2 and it got pretty heated, with at least one person stating that he'd leave the project if R2-D2 was going to be included. Many others didn't feel like the duo, despite their screen time, belonged in a dueling game. From a character prominence standpoint, their inclusion would have made more sense than Luminara's, but hers was a famous deck. From a vote standpoint, R2 fell pretty far short of Aayla Secura for the final spot.

Does anyone still have Mike Maloney's R2-D2 and C-3PO Decks or list?

There's a download link for Maloney's entire Galactic Battles set on his Decks page, which includes it; however, uBlock Origin is telling me that the site it's uploaded on, mycloud.me, is a "malware domain." If need be, I could re-upload it (unless Maloney has any objections to that).

I went on the page and i am not sure if I am doing something wrong or not but I cannot access any of his decks either. If you could upload his decks that would be great. Do you by any chance have Kazdan Paratus, Maris Brood, or Jedi Exile by Maloney?

In the interest of not directing you to a site possibly infected with malware, I went ahead and re-uploaded the set for you:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lJIhPMlL-ZSHdWV0JiYUZaRU0/view

This includes all the decks you're interested in, plus the rest of Mike Maloney's decks. (Maloney, if you're still around and want me to take this down, let me know.) I've only played with a few of them; some of the decks have so much card text that the cards can get straight up difficult to read and would almost certainly be rendered illegible when compressed into JPG for Tabletop Simulator. Those decks might play just fine (I can't imagine Maloney would keep decks around that didn't at least work for his play group), but I wouldn't know. The R2-D2 deck doesn't suffer from this at all, FYI, nor do Maris and many other decks. Kazdan and Exile's cards are definitely stuffed with text, so YMMV there.

(For the record, you wanted to click the text that says "Epic Duels - Galactic Battles" on the Decks page. I'd just grab it from my link, though, just to be safe. For anyone who might read this in the future: my link leads to the 3-11-13 version of Maloney's Galactic Battles set, latest as of this writing. Considering that Maloney's last activity on his site seems to be from 2013, it seems doubtful there'll be another version, but only time will tell.)
