All Neutral Decks

Recently I posed the questions to Zhugebob “Do you think it’s possible to make a totally neutral deck that could be used basically with any flagship?
and if so, is that worth an article?”

His response was “The answer is yes and yes.”


  • Want to turn any flagship into an aggro deck?
  • Want to run an NX or Negh’Var a hard control deck?
  • Want to run a Galaxy as an Aggressive variant or play a versatile Vor’Cha?
  • Maybe you just want some good ideas of where to start looking at the Neutral cards for your own decks.

Well, look no further than these oddly neutral decks. That’s right, entire Deck Archtypes and not a faction card in sight. These decks can be run with ANY flagship. Experiment and have fun with it! Try something new! And maybe you might just uncover the next great deck anomaly that could bring you to rank 1!

I made these lists because I think that it’s fun to experiment. I’ve always felt that Star Trek games are at its best when I’m able to explore the new and exciting. I wanted to share some tools with the rest of you so you could try exploring on your own too! STA has a unique mechanic with the distributions of “Core Cards” and “Special/Ults”, but I think a lot of people are too quick to assume that simply because a flagship is “intended for this role” that it’s “the best” at this role. I’m not so convinced. At least not without far more experimentation. So I decided I’d make something that would allow us to boldly take the metagame where no metagame has gone before!

Here’s the thing… something I’ve noticed about STA is that many people seem to believe that the thing that determines a deck’s archtype is its “Flagship” but in fact, it’s more likely the 30 cards that go into it that determine what kind of deck it is. The “Flagship” is a utility feature. One that — once more people understand it — will let them do some awesome and incredible things with their deck building. An “All Neutral” deck is a perfect way to showcase that idea.
