Magnaguards even if it's their canon versions that ignore their individual skillsets. 

The Magnaguards are a bigger threat than Grievous and are so more consistently throughout the show.

They can also get shot to pieces by mere TIE pilots. I'm sure the BX can at least shoot the Mangaguard before the other gets in range.

Yeah, it happened in SW issue 12.

3 TIE pilots took out like 3 Magnaguards.

Also TBF Zenwolf, are you sure this is supposed to be a canon matchup?

I'm figuring that because it's more fair for the BX. Plus I don't do that whole TCW is both Canons thing(at least to C-canon anyway) and that's where the BX really has all of its appearances anyway.

I respect that. I hate "legends tcw" as well. 

In that case I agree, BX commandos have performed on a similar level against forceusers, and have the advantage of better gear and adaptability

BX Commando Droids might have this due to their ranged advantage. They've proven mobile enough to dodge strikes from the likes of Anakin Skywalker and Adi Gallia, so they can hold their own in close quarters for a short while against a Magnaguard (though the Magnaguards are definitely the more capable melee combatants). 

However, BX Commando Droids also have insane mobility and ranged capabilities that would make them very difficult for a Magnaguard to deal with. If a TIE pilot can kill a Magnaguard with a blaster, I don't see why a Commando Droid wouldn't be able to do the same. 

I do feel it is worth pointing out the Magnaguards used by Grakkus the Hutt may not be the best examples. They may not be all that well maintained, much like the rest of Grakkus' collection. This could explain why TIE pilots could simply blast them apart, and why Kreel was able to blitz multiple with no resistance.

I mean true, that's a fair point, but I don't recall seeing any evidence to the contrary in TCW that they could avoid blaster shots, whereas BX droids were capable of with their mobility. Or at the least they were so quick, that tagging them was a tad bit difficult.
