L5R How to Train Your Dragon Deck Tech
Aneil Seetharam

Rated: 3.75
This province is hard to break and can be very tricky for your opponent when used with other cards that manipulate the dial, but also forces you to have predictable bids if you want it to survive an attack. It works well with cards that change your dial without having an honor exchange, but can cause a too great honor loss otherwise.
Rated: 2
Can be strong when combined with Solemn Scholar, Tadaka or Henshin Disciple. It's stats, however, are very underwhelming for its cost, so it probably won't see much play.
Rated: 3.75
A card one has to play a few games with to learn the true power of it. Becomes even more overbearing in decks that draw a large amount of conflict cards as it becomes more likely to draw back into the thinner your deck gets.
Rated: 5
Personally I think this is broken good but in other comments I've seen people just say this is strong. The action that the card comes with addresses any downside it would otherwise have had. Allows for first turn dynasty pass and inefficient attacks/defenses from opponent when you can play up to 3 dynasty characters directly into any conflict.
Rated: 4
helpful against scorpion to fade Fate worse than death. Wouldn't fault you for running ancestral.
Rated: 5
good reason to bid low
Good luck with your deck.

Why don't you play Upholding Authority? Great way to control the opponents hand. Also have you thought of Formal Invitation? It combos well with spyglass. I would also add a third Representative.

On another note, a third Steward is probably superior to 1Keeper Kami. Even if you need to fire off a ring in defence every now and then 1Kami is too few to be consistent where adding a third Steward would render the Steward+ For Shame combo more consistent
Thanks for your breakdown and incredibly helpful video. A couple questions: with your suggestions for the air role, do you think Uona is viable with only 4 triggers? How many do you think she needs? Also, can the deck survive without the let go's, if we used another clan for influence (in the Kotei environment)? thanks again
Made a few changes based on the feedback my fellow fire-chicken brothers provided:
-Removed Tsukune. Too many 5 costers.
-Removed All and Nothing, as it is too situational
-Added Benten's Touch, as the deck greatly benefits from having lots of honored characters
-Filled the remaining dynasty deck slot with another copy of Bustling Academy
Tried this out at my local games night. Played Crane twice, went 1-1.
Winning first game by sending 4 characters into their stronghold and all having covert for no defenders was amazing!

I still like the idea of Know the World but unsure where to make space for it...
Karmic Twist lost a lot of edges with a lot more uniques in the field. It's pretty solid against Lion still as a way to deal with Spiritcaller and Crane, but everyone else - especially Dragon - can easily play around it and make it dead. Beyond that, with increased unique counts in the Phoenix deck as well, it can be clunky to set up as a pseudo-reprieve as the only big characters you can do this with are Prodigy and Master of Gisei Toshi.
There are some very Flexible options in terms of spells. I'd take Twist of Fate any day, considering how it can remove a stacked Niten Master out of the game. Anyway, I guess it's just different styles of deckbuilding I guess.

GenCon
08/02/18 thru 08/04/18

I had a great time at GenCon. However, first round was against Nick Soto (Phoenix fish boi for days) who was at the top of Swiss on Day 1A. I defeated a lion player round 2 on HMT. Then round 3 I was up against Trevor Cuba, which is an excellent Crane player. Round 4 I needed a win to make the cut, but had a mirror match. The other unicorn player had the encampment turn 1...I didn't so it was pretty easy for him break my provinces and SH.

I did go to the skirmish event on day 1A and defeated a Dragon and another lion player on HMT. My loss was against a Core set SH lion player. Finally, I played one round of the skirmish event on Saturday to get another KoF vote and played a Dragon player and won with TW being the MVP. I dropped to play in A:NR where I proceeded to go 50/50 Wins and Losses in 7 rounds of swiss.

So overall record with this deck at GenCon was 50% 4 wins and 4 losses:
Wins - 2 Dragon, 2 Lion (HMT)
Loses - 1 Phoenix, 1 Crane, 1 Lion (Core Set), and 1 Unicorn

Surprises:
Reprieve (for Shiori, Kachiko, Hiroue or Disguised protector)
Hiruma skirmisher (surprise military covert poke, ideally with air ring for 2 Honor damage)
Spies at court (for a non-threatening political Earth conflict for a 3 random card loss)
Maze of illusion (dial manipulation for Web of lies, ineffective but somewhat interesting for surprise character control)
Blackmail (Everyone expects a 3-honor loss Assassination and a 4 Fate-cost Fate worse than death. Nobody expects Blackmail. Great vs 1-2 surprise drops that pokes).
