In case you haven't seen him yet, from the Holiday pack preview (And also to be a fixed card in 20 Festivals):

Other Players Effects will not move dishonorable Personalities to oppose your Magistrates
Battle: Dishonor a target enemy Personality. You may take an additional action printed on your Magistrate or a card in his unit.

I want to tinker with a Magistrate deck, but we're a bit short on magistrates. Likely need to team up with Ide courtiers to mitigate that high honor requirement. That said, stacking him with Justice of the Crane would be hilarious.

I have a feeling he's going to be our fixed in IV2. Maybe magistrate will be one of our themes going forwards.

I am underwhelmed with him after looking at what some of the other clans are getting.

Same here. The ability and trait are fine but he could do with either another force or chi to match the others. But I am interested to see if we get Magistrates as a theme in IV2. If that happens then I'm sure he will fit nicely into that theme.

A straight dishonor and then the ability to take another action on ANY other magistrate unit in your army? That's pretty damn good. That 8 honor requirement though SUCKS. That's at least a 3rd or 4th body before he can even come out.

if only his honor requirement was lower. 8 is too high. 6 would have been just nice

8 HR is pretty manageable to get if you're playing with Courtiers, since you're likely playing with Takeru Sensei. 1-3 honor off the sensei and then any 3 honor Courtier. If you want more of a military mix, you have guys like Moto Kyouaku-Inu, Shinjo Saeki, Utaku Sang-Ju, and Utaku Sayaka.

If they do make Magistrates a theme of ours, Shinjo Saeki also has a 3 PH, so it's likely they'll be a high honor group.

Not a fan... if we get a magistrate theme I might be more interested... I always kind of liked magistrates.
