Yup. All of the downsides of his Inexperienced version's bow are now additional opportunities.

Honor as a keyword makes me want to throw things at Reese.
And this. Love the Death priest except for the 3F for 8. Also tired of getting inefficient over-box guys (Yabusame). Also have to note that all of our guys shown here are 3 chi or less in the set where there's an open that kills 3 chi guys.

I have to say, another set where I'm not impressed. The past few have made me not even particularly interested in trying out new decks.

It doesn't take much investment to protect a 3C guy from the new kill action so that doesn't bother me too much. And if the opponent wants to spend 10G to kill one of our naked 6-9G guys, we're usually getting the better end of that deal.

Chinua's fairly priced for a good battle action that hits a lot of targets, the Death Priest is Navalry, the infantry guy is really good for less-mobile decks, and the Magistrates might be enough to make defensive honor Tselu into a contender. Not a lot of plug-n-play for our existing decks but definitely some good stuff to go in new directions.

Heck, the new infantry guy gives us a good option for Defense. Since he gives all his cav followers Resilient, you can throw him on a province for dummy force to prevent a break once per game. That's nothing to scoff at. And if that turns out to be really strong, we could run Camel Mounts and bring him into the Cav game. They aren't a bad follower at all really, and come with a movement trick.

Eh what?
ThA gave us access to a heap of reserve personalites, which I have built a new deck from. This set has a sensei that allows Bmaiden switch decks and conqueror support, that is 3 decks in 2 sets. What more do you want?

I find it incredible that someone could think that a 3f naval cav personality with an ability for 8g isn't good enough. This batch of personalities are really quite good and cover a lot of bases.

Some people are just never happy.
