Re: Ide Tadaji

Same statline as Guest of Honor - worse ability. GoH is ridiculously good while Tadaji is... playable?

Re: Call to arms ! an article on unicorn competitiveness !

The key difference between Lion and Dragon splash is Lion gives us one proactive action in Strength in Numbers (underrated) whereas Dragon's arguably two best cards to borrow are both helpful in conflicts. Mirumoto's Fury can be a single card province-saver while Let Go is one of the most useful car...

Re: Child of the Plains

I'm not sold. What kind of actions do we have that need to happen before the defender's first action? Routing out a lone defender is decent, having a hard time thinking of good uses otherwise. If bowing characters prevented them from using their abilities like it did in the old game then maybe Admit...

Re: Card advantage tactics before breaking provinces

Contingency Plan only modifies your own bid so at best it replaces itself when you use it to bid higher. Spies at Court is very good for controlling your opponent's hand but sometimes tough to trigger in Unicorn - I don't like running more than 2x for that reason. Spyglass is a great card to get ext...

Re: Advice for New Unicorn Players?

Beginning with basic deckbuilding stuff: Start building your deck with the cheapest Unicorn characters and conflict cards, then fill in as you go up. Dynasty-wise our 1-cost characters are both pretty good and we have some of the best 2-costers in the game. Our 3-costers are alright so I'd suggest e...

Re: After two weeks of playtesting...

My current build naturally favors military with some political support in order to initiate/defend those challenges and I find that Breakthrough is best for mid-late game tempo. Though it can be used on earlier turns in order to force a defense from your opponent when your "off" conflict threatens ...

Re: After two weeks of playtesting...

Not a fan of Breakthrough. Maybe my games are against more defensive-minded players but having to break a province on my first attack does not happen often enough for me to consider it. I'll give it a nod for high potential to be useful even if it never panned out for me. Keeper Initiate is totally ...

Re: Ideas for splashing

Dragon's contributions are very good for any Clan - Let Go is the most attractive pick to me. Lion has some good stuff too but their cards don't complement my style so I haven't tried them as much. Crane's best card to borrow is Height of Fashion since it turns anyone into a credible Political threa...

Re: My Gencon Thursday deck

Funny that Shameful Display is what's recommended in the suggested 'starter' deck for Unicorn after I recommend against it. :lol: I really dig Pilgrimage instead because it's harder to break and denying a Ring effect (unless it breaks) can often disrupt an opponent's plans. Maybe I've just had too m...

Re: My Gencon Thursday deck

It's a meandering mess, like everybody will be with just a Core set to work with. You've covered the bases with all the 0-cost Conflict cards I can think of. Fallen in Battle might be hard to trigger so I'd consider Rout instead. Province selection is solid. I'm not keen on Shameful Display in Unico...
