So I am fairly new to playing L5R. However I can play...etc but for what ever reason, I cant win. I dont think my deck is working that great. I would like a deck with more spells...etc. If someone could maybe give me some help on the deck that would help. I also find I cant get a lot of gold till the next turn around. While my opponents are all ready get attackers out and have a lot of gold. The deck also needs to be legal play. I have a kotai coming....Help.

Here is my deck list

I would start by asking the primary question what is beating you and why?

I would follow that up by asking what you are trying to do with your deck?

It looks at first glance as having issues with focus and gold development, and that almost always leads to death.

I would also look over the lists in the deck list forum or repost this there as it is move likely to get specific card responses rather than generalized strategy talk there.

I'll be able to give some better ideas once I test the scheme out myself if I can find the time

cheers and welcome to the clan

I have been destroyed by phoenix, crane, crab.... just about every deck you could think off. I know that I cant get a enough worriers out with enough force to take a provence. I would like to have a deck that can get things done right away in my deck. Like getting my people out, cast a few spells...etc to stop them and to take a provence.

The game is more complex than most other ccgs, and have quite a steep learning curve.

So most new players will end up losing a lot to more experienced players, which is part of what makes bringing new blood quite hard as overall, it is a difficult process and can put players off.

The game is left less to chance, if i was to hazard a guess, it will be 60% deck building, 30% skill and 10% luck.

If the deck building is not there, no amount of luck and skill can turn it around (assuming if the other person is playing a better tuned deck). So i suggest to start working on deck building first, and look at what others had done as a guide (you don't have to play exactly the same cards, just go for similar ratios of holdings, attachments, personalities, etc....).
