I too am still here.

I have emotions about it. I will shortly be writing a thing about these emotions.

Re: Medford Kotei 3rd Place, Top Unicorn

Enlistment, when I found it, was a great help. The deck is a bit low on card draw, but you normally win before it is a problem. For everything else, there's Enlistment. The New Order: Can't really say. I love having it in there as an Ohshit card, but my two matchups with Honor didn't really revolve ...

Re: The Unicorn Project

Iuchi Kwaida Status 1, Glory 1 Iuchi Shugenja/Fudoist Monk Kwaida would be the first to tell you that the teachings of Fudo are a false path that lead one off the road of enlightenment and into a cycle of selfish fulfillment of Desire. Of course, he would be lying when he said that, but to say othe...

Re: Medford Kotei 3rd Place, Top Unicorn

In retrospective, I think so. The weak links are as follows -Forward Encampment- Ideal situations had me spending all of my gold every turn, and I couldn't really spare the gold to re-buy a lost follower in battle. Likely, I would replace this with a Garrison Hub, because too often I was only able t...

Re: Medford Kotei 3rd Place, Top Unicorn

Round 1- Crab Iemasa Sensei Fortification Honor This one ended quickly through a combination of a number of factors. The roll off for go first went in my favor, so I got to start out. My start was unspectacular, not bad, not great, but my opponent wound up with a whole bunch of Honor fortifications ...

Medford Kotei 3rd Place, Top Unicorn

Hey all! Not a bad placing for my second ever (and last) kotei! A few notes before the report: This isn't entirely the deck I wanted to play, I had my heart set on a few builds, but lacked the cards for them. It didn't at all occur to me to proxy (derp), so my Scorpion friend and I built this deck a...

Re: Going to my last kotei. need help

Hey, I'm going to be in medford too! There are a few cards in the field for EP that I would absolutely consider for our standard military stuff. Moto Jengzan- He is your bro. Same price/Stats as Shinjo Okaiu, trading Scout/Cav for Commander/Resilient with some useful traits. Very much worth consider...

Re: FFG buying L5R

It's hardly a death, and from a purely competitive standpoint, an LCG format in which everyone has access to a full playset of every card they need rather than spending several hundred to build a competitive deck will be better for people playing in tourneys. FFG also does AMAZING artwork, so we hav...

Re: [EP] Evil Portents Unicorn Previews

Heck, the new infantry guy gives us a good option for Defense. Since he gives all his cav followers Resilient, you can throw him on a province for dummy force to prevent a break once per game. That's nothing to scoff at. And if that turns out to be really strong, we could run Camel Mounts and bring ...

Not necessarily. A bunch of the Standing Fast builds include weapons that bump Chi for dueling protection, and 4 chi with 1 weapon is not hard.

No.

Re: So, how 'bout Dat Naleesh?

I'm happy Naleesh is coming into her own. I'm more than a little concerned that the Kokujin have been shown to be able to force-convert people, and the Togashi have all, Daimyo included, apparently been sharing dirty needles. Naleesh's next edition now has tattooed. Interesting. War between the Shin...

Re: [EP] Evil Portents Unicorn Previews

That art for Dai-ketsu...so different o.O Like something from Warhammer. Same artist that did Shinjo Tsung-min. Lots of detail, more muted colors. I kinda like it. Of course, Tsung-min's artwork turned out to be from the larger art on Superior assault, so I can't help but wonder if Dai-ketsu is the...

Re: [EP] Min-Hee Sensei

You cannot move to battlefields without enemy units, but you can still force sub-optimal play by assigning multiple places and choosing where to make your stand. This should be fine. I'm interested to see that our Commander and Battle Maiden sensei is one and the same, and the 5 starting Family Hono...

While I hope it is not the case, I think at least 2 of our preview slots are going to be taken up by the Evil Portents Commander Strats that were in Clan War.
