Well, Baatar took the words right out of my mouth... seems pretty good for the cost, too.

I find it amusing that the only Spear shown this set can't be used by Baatar.

I will play 1 of those personalities in Arc and none in extended or big deck unless someone can convince me why people worse than paikao should make decks.

That's right about what what I expected from the personality base.

I like better spitting llama a lot.

Very solid reviews, nothing outside the normal power curve. Too bad for me I avoid playing the low chi dudes currently, but this will change as my environment go away from duelling.

The followers are great, but not great enough to replace khan's legion for the expensive slots.

I'm sure commanders is now playable as a theme.

It sure seems that way, however comparing them to the other clans I can't help but feel a bit underwhelmed by our personalities :|

Our personalities may be a little underwhelming, but something to note:

We now have an absolutely ABSURD number of Reserve personalities, and can battle-equip followers when reserving them in due to officer's lodge.

Also, Utaku Zo-Sia is weird, but for honor she is a reusable 4 proclaim

Yes I noticed the amount of reserve as well, which will definitely help against engage/movement negation.

And I think that there will be room for running a Be Silent or two, just to mess with honor

Oh definitely, it could even take the place of Kozan.

Reserve-o-rama might be interesting with Jalair? Jalendu? whatever his name is. I'm sure it would confound many unprepared opponents.
Might be niche right now, because all those dudes show up to the battle nekkid which could be a serious issue. A flaw that might be outweighed by getting a Dynasty phase early. Definitely will want some harpoon since wise opponents won't defend and will leave us with over-costed dynasty. Need some cheapies then so that we can buy a T2 person to get the T3 attack started. This might mean we can run infantry reserve followers without consequence since we want opposed battles anyway. All phases NOW!


My brain is also stuck on finding ways to reliably blow up Zo Sia. Maybe something with Ensorcelled swords and Wedge... hmm...

So, basically, hooray for interesting and thought provoking personalities.

Shinjo "Soul of the Fresh Prince of Jalair" Jalendu is happy to finally be relevant!

I love all our Reserve options now. Hyo-Yeon makes it into a lot of my decks already and the new Reservists are great choices. The followers are all good stuff and I'm glad to see more Battle Maidens. This is a nice batch of previews!

So Sakiko prompts a few questions.
Reserve overlay?
Destined works when overlaying?
Will I be able to make a maiden deck work yet?
Do I actually care if it will work yet?

AEG: Your first theme in 20F is Shinjo Magistrates.
AEG: Here, have a bunch of really interesting Utaku.
AEG: Also, have an underwhelming magistrate.
