My Lobot card was almost the same as 'The Force Is Strong In This One' - but who cares.

I see that only serious, climatic cards passed to this stage - those funny or overpowered did not.

Those are some good cards. I can't even say mine was any good at all - it's not even in the same league! i did have trouble choosing one to vote for, but when I thought about what I'd actually use there was only one I'd have in my deck.

Good luck to all!

Congrats to all the finalists!  I'll be at DragonCon when the winner is announced, so congrats to the winner in advance, lol.  My favorite card isn't doing so well in the run, heh.  Oh well.
