Re: Let's talk Tactics!

Okay... Apparently I was really sleepy because it took me a while to get back to this. My apologies to anyone reading this. After a lot of reading, listening to podcasts, and research of my own I have a revised tier list (Pre-Restricted List): Tier 1 1 - Scorpion (Dragon Influence) 2 - Phoenix (Drag...

Let's talk Tactics!

Yo! Long time no talk right? It's been ages since I've posted here but I figured with the Kotei in Atlanta coming up in a little less than a month for now it wouldn't be a bad idea to talk to my brothers and sisters here on the forum about the current meta and the state of our clan. Though I've gott...

Re: Shinjo Shono

First and foremost, thanks for posting this spoiler here Yamada. Based on first impressions, Shono looks like a keeper to me. He's the first 4 cost character we have that is worth his weight in fate/skill ratio in my opinion and interestingly enough he seems to be designed to abuse our Stronghold, C...

Re: Mysterious Stranger for 5

I guess that's where we'll have to disagree. While in a vacuum he would be a legitimately decent card, given the current environment and unicorn's place in it I think the needless redundancy of his ability points at best in a lateral direction as opposed to the right one (which is effectively bad w...

Re: Mysterious Stranger for 5

I would try not to be so disappointed. Juro is good, not as good as he was rumored to be (because a character with a built in Rout + Child of the Plains would've been great), but he's still a step in the right direction. Does he replace Altansarnai outright? No, it will depend on the way you build y...

Re: Mysterious Stranger for 5

I saw this rumor on the FFG Forums. I'm wary about the validity of this card based on the previous Unicorn cards we've received so far this cycle but if it proves to be true then I'm all in! Honestly this card will outshine Altansarnai in most Military builds and gives us the true Champion level cha...

Re: Best splash for constructed play

No arguments here, Keeper looks to have the better suite of cards in the first pack. Talisman is the better of the two unicorn cards, IMO. I really enjoyed all the pairings. Each has something different to add and promotes different styles of play. Even with the Crab splash I have two different ver...

Re: Best splash for constructed play

I've run through them all and I'm pretty much sold on Crab for the time being. They allow me the most non-event conflict cards to splash which I feel is important vs the 6 Counter Crane deck, arguably one of, it not the best deck in the format. Lion combos get broken up too easily. Scorpion just ca...

Re: After two weeks of playtesting...

Nice list. Curious about your thoughts on some exclusions, such as Assassination, Keeper Initiate, Miya Mystic, and Favorable Ground? Those are the cards that I thought I'd be asked about. Glad to see we're on the same train of thought. Assassination - A very powerful conflict card at the cost of 0...

Re: Ideas for splashing

After taking some time to review what we've seen from the other clans I'm leaning Lion personally. I think that it's better to play to our strengths out of the box than to shore up our weaknesses. Especially when the cards we have access to are spread thin. Keep in mind that the Crane and Scorpion (...

Re: Curved Blades - Unicorn Fiction

A really well written fiction in my opinion. A solid reminder of why I chose to play Unicorn.

It's good to be back! So, what'd you guys think?

P.S. - Also, thanks for the original post Coyote!

Haven't gotten around to reading it all yet but I think it's safe to say that we all appreciate the effort you guys put into finishing the story for Ivory Arc. Thanks!

Re: Going to my last kotei. need help

Honestly I tried your deck out. I liked it at first but my main opponents tends to be dragon kensai dueling and spider fear with attachment destruction. Also, the lack of destined meant that after that large fight, if I lost or broke even, my hand was depleted and I had a hard time recovering. Luck...

Re: Going to my last kotei. need help

I think Min-Hee's playstyle depends heavily on deck construction and your type of build. She naturally leans towards a commander/follower build to get use out of her action. Her trait is icing on the cake and is what I believe makes her a viable option in competitive play. A build whose personalitie...

Re: Modern Decks?

I could've sworn that there was a build for a Modern Takeru Sensei/Plains of the Maiden deck floating around here somewhere. I believe it even won a Sun and Moon tournament. I was thinking about playing Min-Hee Sensei/Plains of the Maiden in Modern. A 7PS 5G 6FH Unicorn stronghold seems like it woul...

Re: Going to my last kotei. need help

Gotta agree with Nomad. Those cards are among the few that stand out to me for Unicorn builds. I think a couple to look out for may be: Avenge Your Slights - Not only does it bows the duel's loser but it destroys a card without attachments in the unit. It becomes a kill duel if the duel's loser has ...

Re: 20F Arc - A Matter of Honor (Min-Hee Sensei)

I completely forgot about Jengzan! I guess it's because I usually keep the cavalry filter on when I search through Oracle.

I just wish he had 2 PH, that's the only downside he has in my opinion.
