Solo Play Saturday is a new weekly (well, maybe semi-weekly) feature. We'll introduce a theme for you lone wolves to try out.

This week's theme is Understudies. The second string gets a time to shine!

You may not include any :crew with a cost above :credit1 in your captain's deck!

I find that Heroics make nice :ev padding cards. All of these cards are usually 2 :ev.
