Strengths

  • 7:5 power-to-deploy cost ratio
  • Easy requirements to gain an extra battle destiny
  • Easy requirements to gain two battle destinies in heavy Vader and/or Bounty Hunter decks
  • High immunity to attrition
  • Powerful for both Space & Ground

Weaknesses

  • Game text as well as ability of 3 is weak when battling alone; limits Boba to a powerful support character
  • Costly end-of-turn requirements (use 2 force to keep on table, lose 2 force and place in used pile, or place in lost pile)

Great for… 

  • Decks centered around Vader or Bounty Hunters
  • High force generation decks

How to Use Effectively… 

  • Most powerful when deployed into an existing battle area where the Dark Side \has Vader and/or Bounty Hunters deployed
    • Due to deploy cost it is deploy simultaneously with other characters during same turn
  • Consider using as a “kamikaze card” by adding two additional battle destiny to clear the board and forfeiting Boba in order to alleviate attrition and negate the costly card upkeep
