Re: EoW Previews The Snow Has Teeth

What I find interesting, is that the way I read it, the PS max and terrain destruction are limited to this battle, the send home negation is not.

Re: EoW Crab Berserker Previews

The Power of Strength looks nasty at the start, but if you have even 0F followers on your guys, the range attack never happens, since it can ONLY target the personality. As a bow action it's sub par since you have to have two legal targets to bow one.

Re: EoW Crab Clan Personality: Kaiu Tojikana

Possible use for our PotM and new Tactician boxes. In PotM he makes up for his lack of BM keyword with the 2 honor gain (same as if a BM kills an army and takes the provence afterwards) and does better for when you're turtling. Main problem is when you get stuck with him when you don't want him, doe...

Very good for Void though, since it's a battle that happens during the Action Phase.

Re: JEK Commander

I would replace Tetsuo with Utaku Mai, while force reduction is often less useful than a range attack having Cavalry makes her better imo. They have the same utility of allowing you keep a reserve incase your opponent does something you don't expect, but Mai can assign to solo a provence (with follo...

Re: Khan's Estate Tact/Paragon

Using Ki-Chang and not attacking with him means that on top of getting the fate card you also get a 1F follower. If my choices are to send Byung or Ki-Chang, I'll send Byung unless I really think that the one force will make a difference.(It almost never should)

Re: overall impression?

For our gold scheme, Prosperous Village is a huge boost. 1st turn gold, even 2x 2 for 2 you can buy a personality for six and the village. 5G is a common number for us to work with. I'd drop Silk Works out of the line up before I did the Village. Granted you usually cycle it if you see it 1st turn, ...

Really, wow, you're right, (l5rsearch had Tsukiko as uncommon) a 3/2 blank for 7 fails to impress me for a rare. I agree, she should be easy to trade for.

Re: overall impression?

Moto Naleesh, expensive but I'll use her, neither good nor bad. Shinjo's Guidance exp, see Moto Naleesh. Moto Houseguard, zero complaints, excelent. Clan Virtue, open/battle straighten, needs an unbowed personality, but can rehonor both. Good, will use in most decks for now. New, never seen before p...

Re: Khan's Estate Tact/Paragon

Like I said at the top of my post, Caught Unawares is there to back off a blitz since I need more gold with all my attachments. Ki-Chang along with Junpei are the only tacticians I don't mind leaving behind to fuel the box, with Tairu I'd want to assign him since I'd get the same card draw, and have...

Re: Unicorn Enlightement

I've heard two opinions on that, and well, being a casual player and not a judge I don't know which is correct. First is that if any part of an action cannot be negated then it's all protected, the other is that if negation protection is part of the effects and you play something where the effects d...

Re: Khan's Estate Tact/Paragon

I'm doing something similar, but more attachment heavy. (it's been preference of mine for a long time, when looking at old cards looking for reprints, came across some Jade decks, and they had about 10 each) With Shinjo's Guidance giving a benifit I thought, why not? To balance out the slower start ...

Re: overall impression?

Well, on the plus side, this could be the most economical set for us. With all the cards we care about being recycled old cards, we can get by with buying a couple starter decks. :lol:

Re: overall impression?

The Loyal keyword is used because there are some personalities that, even paying extra, are so good that other clans can use them and unbalance the game. I find it extremely interesting that in all of EE, SC, FL, and BtD our only Loyal personality is Moto Naleesh. The Lion are in the same boat, but ...

Any personality with a battle action gives the same benifit. If you didn't have to have someone there to pull him in it would be different.

Re: Christmas Shopping!

if you're going para/tac I'd go SC, the only really big rare for BtD is Iron Will (huge, but the only one.) SC has Effortless Counterattack (major meta card with every shugenja taking extra actions) , Utaku Liu-Xiung xp and Surety of Purpose; Moto Jun is also in SC incase you switch to Commander (Iu...
