Wes Janson: 29 points, PS 8, EPT (v2.0 W12)

After you perform an attack, you may remove 1 focus, evade, or blue target lock token from the defender.

Wes Janson is unique. He's the Rebel with the Scummy ability to deny tokens. You want him firing first to set up whatever you're doing with whichever ship you also bring that isn't Biggs.

Dan Hars made Top 4 at 2016 North American Championship and won multiple Regionals with Wes clearing the way for Corran. Stress and token control at PS 10 set up minimalist Corran to double-tap naked victims to victory.

(32) Wes Janson: Veteran Instincts, R3-A2, Integrated Astromech
(42) Corran Horn: Veteran Instincts, R2-D2, Fire-Control System
(26) Biggs Darklighter: R4-D6, Integrated Astromech

The Biggs nerf hurt this squad badly; Selflessness is now required, but that means shaving R3-A2 to a 1 point droid, which is a pity. A 41 point Poe makes for a durable Corran replacement, but he doesn't bring the same offensive thump.

Token Denial - Rank B

(31) Wes Janson: Veteran Instincts, Flight-Assist Astromech, Integrated Astromech
(41) Poe Dameron: Veteran Instincts, R2-D2, Advanced Optics, Autothrusters, Black One
(28) Fenn Rau: Adaptability, M9-G8, Weapons Engineer, Vectored Thrusters

All three pilots move in any order, maximizing Fenn's coordinate boost on Poe. Wes strips a token, clearing the way for Poe's punch. Black One breaks target locks, Fenn softens enemy strikes, and double M9-G8 provides added offense or defense as necessary. The biggest issue is the prevalence of Wookiee gunships who are completely unaffected by the control elements of this squad.

Five Double-Modded Dice - Rank C

(30) Wes Janson: A Score to Settle, R4-D6, Integrated Astromech
(40) Keyan Farlander: Opportunist, Heavy Laser Cannon, Collision Detector
(30) Lowhhrick: Draw Their Fire, Wookiee Commandos

Wes clears the way for Opportunist. Keyan target locks, rolls the extra die, and uses the Opportunist stress for a satisfying 4.7 hit expectancy. Lowhhrick and R4-D6 keep that Wes engine going as long as possible, and they both chip in what they can with minor mods.
