Glad she is coming to EE. Solid card in the Maiden deck. I can only hope for another lock down card like Jin-lao to go along with her.

3PH and no UP? Really? That girl will see play on the beggining of the arc simply because you'll have no other paragon to fill all the spots.

Glad to see her back, but it sucks that we can't overlay her with Liu-Xeung anymore.

We can't, even if she's a soul-of, right?

Since overlay is now quite useless it's no big deal

Yep... totally forgot about losing the +1PH but a -3F on engaging is still a solid ability. Needless to say she will remain in my deck until a newer, shinier model comes along.

The main problem I have with the 3 PH isn't her ability, but how it interacts with all out other Paragon cards, Iron Will won't work on most Cranes anymore. Like the others said, early arc use, but won't last to the end like she did in CE

I just hope we get a boxable BM along the way, the EE version of the BM house is worthless early arc.

this- if paragons keep getting actions which have to target peeps w/ lower PH, she'll be blank against half the field-

3 force redux is also pretty weak, prob not that useful unless we get a slew of built in RA's or another peep like jin-lao from CE- really all paragons should have a 4PH to keep them usable if they are going to keep the trend of using PH as the target stat for BM's

i think she'll be one of the first BM's to drop out of play

I wonder about her effectiveness without the Utaku Plains also. However, she should still be a great set-up for Force-based effects like Ranged Attacks and the naughty side of Paragon cards.

Not another blank! How about they just give us Utaku Yanai back +Paragon? Not only that, but 3/3 blank for 6 seems to be the standard, barring Tactitian.

Rumor has it that you're getting a little close here to describing an actual card and leaking information... Stop now. Yes, this is an official Mod Nudge.

And I'm using this color because Red looks horrible and unreadable on our background....

I could tell by the mod lazer blue death ray lettering. One thousand apologies


Sooo back on topic... Ryokos newest reason for being in my deck (because now even overlaying her doesnt help) is being the redirect spud. She gets her battle action off first, can be bought early game for honour even out of the tactician box and I couldnt care less if she dies over almost any other maiden available.

Even bentens blessing is a waste on her because id rather use bentens on our champ or on eun-ju or mai.
