Using Taken Hostage, you can pop her yourself for a -6 Force Penalty, and then just bring her back and proclaim that delicious 4 honor again
Hadn't even considered that until now. Wheels Within Wheels is the first card that came to mind after seeing Zo-Sia. I wish she had the Imperial keyword for flavor.

Oooh, Wheels is a good one too. There are a few ways to get a lot of mileage out of her.

Wheels within Wheels also if you manage to make the deck a Turbo honor of some sort. I can see her making some people try the Takeru decks on other styles, but still not very much into it, as any of this out of Phoenix just seems better, they can do it all day from their SH and can even use 2 spells that make all the difference in speed, I think. (the +1 to the honor in holdings and the one vs honor, with Karmic).

PS: MAYBE, just maybe, our extra PS can win a couple game and round that out, but... honor vs honor they still gona win.

With courage beyond question so common, Taken Hostage is a gamble IMO

It's too bad that neither Gempukku nor Miryoku no Shima can give her courtier, if you could give her courtier An Act of Disdain would work amazingly with her.

Who knows might even see her in other clan decks if Oath of Fealty's clan alignment stays when she leaves play. I can see it now...Oath of Fealty, wheels within wheels/taken hostage, resurrection, then recruit with Makoto's bonus for 5 honor gain, a bit janky though...

Or better yet if you were running spider honor using Oath of Fealty and then using Susumu Takuan's ability.

Requires the Samurai trait. Wish she cost 2 more and had Destined.

Did not realize she wasn't a samurai. Nice target for Gempukku though. :D

Right now I look at Zo Sia as a new Shinjo Shono (basic version). Not really anything to write home about, but could be the foundation for some really cool experienced versions of a great storyline personality.
