L5R fan who took up playing when they revived the card game in it's current iteration. Love, love, love the aesthetic and lore of the Unicorn clan, but I'm also a big fan of Dragon and Crab as well. I dig the style of the game because its so radically different from other card games I'm use to (like MTG), and the lore behind everything and the way the game evolves over time is amazing to me. Anyway that's all I have to say about myself.

Oh it is, nice. Still I'm not sold on charge for this deck type
Added: 5 months ago
Against the Waves is restricted I believe and I'd rather have the three Labs to help pump my little guys in all honesty. I thought about adding Funeral Pyres, those would replace my mines if I did.

So this deck is a bit of an experiment but this is what (at least in theory) I'm looking to do. So here we go...

Strategy: Overwhelming Defenses, Towering big Shugenjas, and sacrificing little weenies.

Provinces: Put Revels [continue reading]under the stronghold and defend the shit out of all the other ones as best you can.

Offensive Shugenja: So the premise of the deck is focusing on Shugenja characters, and when it comes to attacking your go to characters are Kuni Yori, Kudaka and the Steadfast Witch Hunter. The goal here is to tower these guys with Fine Katanas and Jade Tetsubos and pumping them with Spreading the Darkness or Supernatural Storm when needed. Kuni Labs also help and if you have the Earth or Water ring Third Tower Guard can pitch in also. Kaito Kosori is also extra aid if you attack the Air ring. Seeker of knowledge also helps here since Earth and Air are your two big targets offensively, with Water a solid third. Drop her in on an Earth ring contest and then if you have to take the air effect, and if you're lucky you can hit the air ring on your next attack if able. This deck towers but it prefers defend to attack, so don't get over zealous here.

Defenses: The champs here are Kuni Ritsuko and Yasuki Broker. Throw them into every defenses and have your weenies join in. Mantis Tenkinja helps lower the cost of Mountain and Fight on, While Nezumi Infiltratiors help bolster your defense on the softer provinces. Way of the Crane and In Defenses of Rokugan are meant for this as they play well with the brokers effect giving you a return when you sack things like Eager Scout. Watch Commander is good here too as are your pump cards. Cloud the mind helps make the other sides bigs less spooky and Kuni Lab does what it does. Also if you can use the Witch Hunter's ability here when the Broker is defending, if you know the result of the conflict is no going to change so she'll be ready to attack or defend. Ritsuko and Meditations should be a key defense strategy for you as well.

Other Cards: Iron Mine and Reprieve help keep your Towers out longer as does Vanguard Warrior. Sack keeper initiates while they are in tandem with the broker in conflicts if you can. Finger of Jade keeps you safe and Against the Waves keeps the Shugenjas ready at all times. Warm Welcome can be tricky to get off but it can help if you meet the requirement to reuse your pumps or other events. Miya Mystics are nice attachment hate that also counts towards the Shugenja count for Super Storm or if you have a Cloud in hand, and hey could always sack them in a conflict where a Broker is present.

Feel free to bid low and hit their honor early on if you can, this is not your chief win condition but it is a good way to exert some serious pressure on your opponent.

That's all I got to say here, sorry if it was pretty wordy, like I said this deck is an experiment at best. Hope you all have fun with this one and feel free to leave any comments below.
