She's a little off, based on her art. That being said, I like her card overall, and think the flavor text fits with the art.

What she is, is a walking platform for 'I Give You My Name' to enable a turn 2 Raido No Oni stompage :D

I think you should just call it "Raido no Stompage".

All I can say is meh....over-priced for a blank 3/3. Compare her to the Mantis getting a 3/3 for 4 gold. Yes ours has Cav. but theirs has Naval. (just imagine if they switched Cav for Naval AND dropped the gold cost by 2 on all our personalities, we'd never lose)

Pretty handy overall. Comparing her to Moshi Tomeno is not the best comparison since Tomeno has an above-starting HR for most of their boxes. Rani is maybe 1G overpriced but that's what cavalry costs. I'll take a cheap spell platform that can still crack most Crab provinces with a Strength of the Tsunami.

I love her art and flavor text too. I hope we hear more about her in EE.

I like her too, was used to the 7g 3/3 vanilla crap of always.

Also, goth chicks are hot.

i tend to agree that she is 1G too much- otherwise shrug

i'm prob the only one here not really excited about the death priest theme (the lack of Akikazu just kills it for me- maybe Cheezeburger will fill that void inside of me)

We've only seen 8 EE personalities.... my instincts tell me there should be more in a base set.

CE had 13, SE had 20 (some were starter only reprints of KD and TTT personalities), LE had 16 (including a MRP of a card from a prior legal set), DE had 13, GE had 12 (L5Rsearch shows 13, with the 13th being Akasha, who was not in GE).

Either way, I doubt we'd see that big of a cut in base set personalities.
