Wedge Antilles (v1.0 W10)

When attacking, reduce the defender's agility value by 1 (to a minimum of "0").

Wedge Antilles is the man: no cheaty Force powers, just pure unadulterated Empire-bustin' badassery. We should be living in a universe where the FFG forums are filled with threads discussing how to nerf him because he's breaking the game, or if it's fine anyway because he's Wedge freakin' Antilles.

Unfortunately, we reside in the reality where Wedge doesn't impact premiere events. The Notorious H.S.U. did manage to fly Wedge to a successful Regionals season in 2015, including a win at Mesa, AZ. The Hsunami employed the Draw Their Fire off Biggs archetype with a Stresshog and Bandit. It updates to:

Richard Hsu - Rank A

(34) Wedge Antilles: Draw Their Fire, R2-D2, Integrated Astromech
(26) Biggs Darklighter: R4-D6, Integrated Astromech
(14) Captain Rex
(26) Gold Squadron Pilot: Twin Laser Turret, R3-A2, BTL-A4 Y-Wing

Biggs covers Wedge who keeps him alive (Draw Their Fire and R4-D6 are quite effective in tandem). Rex/Hog control further keeps Biggs alive. Wedge has to do the heavy lifting offensively throughout, and needs every bit of his ability to do so. PS 9 and R2-D2 make him a passable endgame finisher; if only he could reposition...

Uh oh... Thematic squad inbound:

Trench Run - Rank F(unsies)

(37) Wedge Antilles: Predator, R5-X3, Proton Torpedoes, Guidance Chips
(37) Luke Skywalker: Draw Their Fire, R2-D2, Proton Torpedoes, Guidance Chips
(26) Biggs Darklighter: R4-D6, Integrated Astromech

It's barely playable, and would be substantially improved with Poe swapped in for Luke, BUT it's awesome to fly this trio on a Death Star mat.
