THE YOUR DESTINY GAUNTLET

The YOUR Destiny Gauntlet consists of the decks we recommend testing your tournament decks against (in Standard Format). Rather than splitting the decks into tiers, we've rated each of them as follows:

POWER LEVEL is our assessment of the strength of the deck, within the competitive meta..
POPULARITY is an estimate of how often you'll see this deck being played at competitive events.
SKILL LEVEL shows how "easy" or "difficult" a deck is to pilot.

The Power Level, Popularity and Skill Level are subjective estimations of the decks. All estimations have been made by our The YOUR Destiny Test Group: The European Gauntlet, and they might differ within your local, regional or national meta.

LAST UPDATED (Sep 27, 2018): The Gauntlet is continuously updated, when decks pop-up, fall out of favor or pick up in power level due to new cards arriving or cards disappearing due to rotation.

WAY OF THE FORCE

This is the newest version of the Gauntlet, and has been valid since July 5, 2018. The major tournaments of this period, and the main bulk of data that has been used to compile the Gauntlet, has been the Store Championship season 2018 and the North American Championship 2018. The current meta looks extremely diverse, and quite a few decks could be included in the list, but for the sake of simplicity, we consider some decks so similar to other decks already present in the Gauntlet, i.e. Yoda/Cassian vs. Poe/Cassian, that only one of the decks have been included. Similarly, there are a lot of different iterations of an archetype, i.e. 3wide or 4wide hero vehicle decks, that we've included only one version of this particular archetype. We recommend you consider this when doing your testing in preparation for a major tournament. Monoblue heroes are represented with Plo Koon/Padawans, and although it is extremely vulnerable to the ever so popular Kylo Ren, we do feel it does something uniquely powerful, whereas none of the 2 character monoblue hero decks, i.e. Luke3/Rey2, have made the cut due to the same vulnerability.

LEGACIES

This Gauntlet was valid until July 5, 2018, but is now OUTDATED! The major tournaments of this Gauntlet were the Regional Season 2018, Worlds 2018 and the European Championship 2018. All of the below decks are now considered archived and have been replaced by the decks in the "Way of the Force Gauntlet". Some of the decks could still be considered worth testing against, while others are no longer valid decks, i.e. Rey2/Aayla, due to changes in the rules/holocrons.

CREDITS: This is Joe Colon aka HonestlySarcastc of TheHyperloops version of the Drive-by-Shooting deck, that he designed and piloted to a top4 finish at WORLDS 2018.
