Pretty solid and well rounded build IMO. Disruptive, Levitation, Cunning, Opportunist, Door Control and Tempo Control. Only missing out on Init Control!

There have been 2 suggestions/ideas that I have been tossing around in my head.
1) Drop Kyle JBM for Kyle CI

2) Drop Kyle JBM for Han Solo, GH

Just wondering what you think of the options.

This is precisely what I've been running the past few weeks. I really like it. I also really like Kyle JBM in there over the other two options mostly for the GOWK matchup. If you drop Kyle for Han you're down to Ganner being your only melee piece; you also lose out on Riposte, which makes you a little worse off against Lancers.

Kyle JBM over Kyle CI is a slightly tougher choice I think. The block/riposte or double riposte combo is nice, but you lose out on some of the more useful force powers (Assault and the direct damage), lose the grenades option (not always useful, but there are times when it can be pretty devastating), go -1/-1, and drop down to double from triple attack. I don't think that his CE and an 8 point difference quite makes up for all that.

I think it's a very strong build. Mara and Dash are a great balance as very strong Cunning/Opportunist attackers, the Levitate gives you SO much flexibility, and Kyle's just a beast.

Now that I have Dash and Kyle, I look forward to running something like this. My Regionals squad was Mara, Kol, Zuckuss, Ganner, Wedge, and filler. This one looks to have more damage potential - i like it!

Kyle is good, but he really doesn't pull his load in 200. I would drop him for Han, who gives you the much needed Accurate Shot. Plus, that still gives you a Cunning/Opportunist duo after Mara (inevitably) bites it. Seems we're all running the same NR squads nowadays...

I ran it with shado vao over Kyle at my regionals and took a fourth. I beat a squad with Kyle bm and lost to the eventual winner who had Han in there with anakin

I've always liked han over kyle, but thats just me.

As far as the gowk matchup goes you can kill his support fairly easy with han and mara, then just push and shoot him to death and you will win.

Kyle in the meta as of now just gets steamrolled by good shooters cause he doesnt have wedge as backup in mos of the newer builds so id say go with Han or Shado. Han for Damage or Shado for tying up melee attackers. Heck you could even do Kol. I really depends on how much you like Disruptive, the faction offers you many ways to get it 2 Kyles for Melee or Han/Talon for range.
