Replacement for Sidious?

Okay I know he's good and all but I want to replace him simply because everyone uses him and I'm sick of his face haha. I recently got Savage from the Squad shipments and have nearly got him to 4*, would he be a viable replacement? Please tell me anyone who could replace him. The rest of my team is:
Phasma (leader)
Luminara
Ackbar
Fives

Please don't say "don't replace him" or anything like that cause I am going to and you'll just be ignored so it's a waste of time really

  • If you have Kylo ren, that's a good replacement
  • depends on the table... in darkside battles or cantina, whatever you want, imo. as long as the damage is good, you'll be fine.

    for galaxy and arena, for me, i'd only replace him with someone who can also block heals from working... which i think is kylo and anakin only... that or stack more ability blocks or stuns through characters like vader, daka, ventress--this type of cc is less reliable in my experience than heal blocks, but works well more often than not.

  • Don't replace him.

    I've been working towards getting him in cantina, about 30 shards out of 80 I think, get there eventually I suppose haha

    Is that his basic attack that blocks the heals?

    I know, that heal block is hard to replace haha, it's useful but I find its resisted more times than not... is Kylo more likely to hit it?

    Sidious' heal block is much more reliable. I run both Sidious and Kylo. I'm curious WHY you want to replace him.

    Yup, I read that. That's the reason I emphasized WHY. Lol. To me it's not a good/real reason to drop him.

    Because I hate him as a character haha and don't want to use him basically. I don't want a team of just the best heroes if I don't like the character, that's just how I want to play it basically

    Fair enough, I get that. Anyway, Kylo only has a 55% chance to inflict healing immunity. I don't rely on it to focus a toon down. It's more useful for when he counters and applies it to secondary toon.

    Oh that's a bit crap really; I'd probably get someone who doesn't do that but maybe stuns instead cause I don't have any stunners, or does offense down maybe? Any suggestions?

    I hate to say it, but consider Dooku. He's very fast, which is what the current meta demands, and has a decent chance to stun with lightning: 40% chance to stun a target and 40% chance to stun secondary target. 90% chance to stun if target is Jedi. He's a flexible toon and fits in a variety of synergies.

    I know I'm shooting myself in the foot with these things but I don't like Dooku either haha. What about Eeth Koth? He's got a decent stun chance and would be a good counter against a droid team.

    Sorry to keep shutting down your ideas man I do appreciate your input!

    Go droids team or jedi team, or first order team(never seen that maybe it takes time to farm all the characters )

    I was thinking droid team maybe, would take a while though. A Jedi team wouldn't really work for me though cause I'm free to play haha
