FFG Worlds 2017 Final Match
Fantasy Flight Games

Join us for the Final Match of Legend of the Five Rings: the Card Game featuring John Urbanek and Samuel Benies. The winner of this game earns the first ever World Championship title for the L5R LCG!
Unfortunately, this does not combo with Height in Fashion, because it only flips the base stats.
Rated: 3.75
A good selection when tempo disruption is more important to your deck strategy than ring effects, as can be the case with blitz decks or swarm decks where conflict cards have more weight than character abilities. Like most 3 strength provinces, falls apart under the effects of Pathfinder's Blade.
Rated: 4
In Crane this is a good card for disrupting opponent's pushes (particularly military, but really any) and forcing an over-commitment by opponent on defense. The Courtier trait is necessary. You can defend with Doji Rep so that it is available in conflict in order to play Courtier-based cards, such as For Shame and Disdainful Remark, or just disruptive cards like Outwit and Policy Debate, or to gain a benefit from Shameful Display, and then send home ready for your own conflict push. The 2 glory here also frequently comes into play.
Rated: 3.75
One of the more satisfying cards to play in the game. Nothing feels better than putting a Nitten Master in the corner and telling him to shut up. Rating suffers a bit due to the high cost (which I think is appropriate) and the fact that, due to the high cost, you really need to have cards in your deck that either allow you to see your opponent's hand before you pay to play this or enough cancels in your hand to cancel your opponent's cancel.
Rated: 4
Great addition to unicorn and embodies the playstyle with ability. Move effects diminish send home mechanics. Can be used to force opponent until an inefficient defensive position by pulling back from a first conflict push that won't break in order to preform a second.
Rated: 4.5
Strong with stronghold that buffs glory. Ability impacts your characters also so requires careful planning. Largely is played to force cards out of opponent in order to counter and at times can break a province. Has little useful traits for phoenix.
Hi! Thanks for dropping by your comments. I'm thinking of dropping Kosori as she hasn't been pulling her weight. Seeker of Knowledge might follow suit. If I decide to keep them, I might just put 3xInquisitive Ishika back in the deck to help reduce their cost (as they are both air cards and would therefore cost 1 less during air conflicts).

I will however try to find stronger substitutes in the conflict deck to replace them.

Rally to the cause is there because there needs to be a stronghold province and Elemental Fury wouldn't cut it. Ring denial of the air ring is achieved through DoP and Guardian Kami in this case.
Also, why rally to the cause over Elemental Fury? With the other one you can deny him the Air Ring potentially
Interesting. I haven't been able to make this work for me. My decklist doesn't include 3x Kosori and 3x Seeker of Knowledge though. Generally they are god damn expensive. Considering this, how do you get enough fate to play them and a bunch of 3,3+ costers from the dynasty?
#AlwaysBid1
Seriously, this deck was inspired by Bayushi Akai's article on Defensive Dishonor article ( http://imperialadvisor.com/wp/2018/05/29/defensive-dishonor-theory/ )in response to the announcement of the restricted list and as I did not have a huge amount of time to fully test a new deck I tried his 1st draft and won our local Stronghold tournament the week before the Kotei. After that test, I made a couple of changes to better suit my preferred style (4 cards) & took the list to the Grand Kotei in Birmingham.

All in all I faced 2 Scorpion (who were all running standard high bid decks), 3 Crab, 2 Lion, 1 Dragon & 1 Phoenix. All opponents that beat me (Lion, Crab, Crab) proceeded to Top 16 placements or better (T13, T8 & Final respectively)
None of my games went to time & all of my wins were due to dishonor in around 45 minutes. I only mention this because one of the complaints of this style of deck is how long it can take to win, especially against Scorpion & this indicates that it can be done.

Whether you agree with the deck philosophy or not, I highly recommend that you read the article & give the deck a try and hopefully you will come to understand the game a little better (or understand the steps that any deck adopting this style may take).
Interesting build man. After the Kotei in Dusseldorf I'm trying to put a working version of such a deck, however something doesn't quite click in my builds. I run less holdings and different province choices, but my testing also shows that going with conflict chars is the way to go. Thus it makes more sense like you to have few and cheap dynasty chars. How the 3x Waning Hostilities work for you? I tried with 1 and it is ok, but with many of them I feel you miss chances to hit back with unopposed conflicts. Also aren't you wasting your RL slot for a single Forged Edict? I'll try with Policy Debate and Way of the Phoenix in my next builds. :)

Vs Lion (Casual): Victory. Round 1 his Lion's Pride Brawler runs into Endless Plains, I win a Void Ring round 2 with 3 Keepers available, game goes my way from there, Stronghold break round 4.

Endless Plains is doing some serious work when it works, other times it's pretty much blank but its worth it for the blow out potential.

Overall: 6-2

Vs Unicorn; Win. First time playing a mirror match in a long time, I got out the gates early, 2 keeper initiates and claiming the Void ring the first 2 rounds built my board big, LoO breaks provinces. His scorpion splash was low impact due to my wide board. Moto Nergui ran into my Endless plains, that really powered me forward in the first round.

Overall 7-5

Vs Crane (casual); Loss. 5 cancels & an assassination in the first 2 rounds made this tough to get traction early, managed to come back into the game but couldn't get Yoshi off the board and when he was finally about to leave, he flips another. I lost on the stronghold to an all out attack, whilst I was ready to attack his stronghold that round, A few misplays early cost me later down the line.

Finished 2nd place; 2-1 overall.

Beat Phoenix & Crane, Lost to Crab.

Crab seems to be auto lose, whilst Phoenix seems to be a favourable match-up. Very happy with the deck. Send home cards & LoO seem to be doing great work. Great prep for the Grand Kotei.

Overall: 6-4
