Oh and how does that "Jedi Purge" ability seem to you? Appreciate all constructive critique on this character/ability. Would this piece work in tourney play?

In all honesty, if your opponent isnt playing Clones (and most squads at the most have Rex and thats it) then this guy will go down like a sack of potatoes.

130 hp + 20 defense + ability to use more force points per turn than he can earn will kill him quick once he has shown himself.

Indeed he reaches his maximum potential when facing a squad with clones. However, you might have missed my point of adding MF3 so as to spend force points 3 times in either re-rolling attacks and/or Lightsaber Defense. He can potentially do 120 damage @ 19 attack (cunning attack & sith rage)... and god help you if he lands a crit with Vicious Attack.

The commander effect is also potentially devastating to an opponent with a unique force user... Imagine "stealing" some one's cornerstone character.

Yes his base defense is low for his cost. But Im basing this off the fact that in all his saber battles his opponents never 'wiffed' hitting him. Instead, what he lacked perhaps in agility while engaged in saber combat, he made up for with his consistent and elite parrying skills.

Perhaps upping his HP by 20 would be a good idea :emperor:

I disagree. 95 pts for a anti order 66 mini and Motf 3 really. Having 0rder 66 guys in the squad is nice like the old one. I would just update the old one so he doesnt suck than trying to make a super sidious that is just overcosted in the end.

I would just go with a Motf 2 and fix the whole CE and Order 66 thing so you can get him at the high 50-low 70 range. At 95 he just plain is not worth his points he turns in to GM Luke or Revan from FU.

Made some changes. Base stats were increased and changed the definition of Jedi Purge. The CE has been completely changed.

I think these changes make the piece better. Any ideas on his cost given the abilities? Over-costed or just right?

Thanks for the critique ladies and gents!
