Play Style: This list has a lot of tricks, and knowing when to play which command card is the key to success. In general the Rebel Troopers should be focused on the objectives at hand with the support of Leia, while Luke and the AT-RTs can deal some damage and keep the enemies of the rebellion at bay long enough for the Rebel Troopers to complete their mission. Be aggressive with Luke, he is incredibly fast and deals a lot of damage - if you can get him into melee early using Jump, Force Push, and Environmental Gear your opponent will be forced to stop and deal with Luke where he is and that frees the rest of your forces to deal with the scenario. The AT-RT are equipped with Laser Canon instead of Rotary Canon to be able to deal with enemy AT-ST and AT-RT in the mirror match. If there is no enemy armor, which happens from time to time, use the AT-RT to move up and distract the enemy from your troopers. Use your number of activations to your advantage, if you are able to hold your more impactful activations to the end of a turn you are able to do more with them free from fear of recourse - Ideally this means always activating Luke last and threatening him as an option (except on turns in which he wants to go first to get back to safety or deal with an enemy before it has a chance to activate).
