Dan got his start in LCG's with Warhammer 40K Conquest. After that game was cancelled a friend introduced him to L5R which he has been playing since roughly the launch of the game. Though he was active in Conquest online play he has yet to get into jigoku.online

Dan lives in Portland, Oregon which has a healthy L5R scene with many strong players. He tries to get in 2-3 game nights a week. He is the developer and administrator for the deck building sites bushibuilder.com and traxissector.com.

My main concern with shrine maiden is giving my opponent access to it when she shows up as a result of trading. While this deck isn't hampered if an attachment discard shows up and hand to hand being during conflict only helps contribute to cards pla [continue reading]yed requirements. I don't think H2H is ideal and likely any number of cards can fall into that slot while being conservative in what may become available to your opponent.
Added: 6 months ago
You should do a write up on this so people know how to play it
Added: 7 months ago
Not in how I play the deck, which tends to have only a couple facedown province cards a turn and also competes frequently on political. AtImost river would help cheapen shinomen, but i don't expect the shinomen wayfinders to test well so don't want [continue reading]to skew my deck too far towards synergy just for them. The next card in line to add is court games or banzai if shinomen tests poorly

Congrats!

I have considered but have not tested that card as of yet. The two cost along with the restrictions around participating and contested ring and that it offers no other synergy have not made the card appealing to me. What is your experience with it.
Added: 7 months ago
I get great draw from the shrine maiden hits and library. And the fate boost from inquisitive, awakened and embrace. So I'm feeling good with playing this out of Phoenix.
Added: 11 months ago
Thanks - I updated the write up. I had made some tweaks to the deck and forgot to revise the strategy. Crab is already good at dealing with dueling just from their base deck so the more I test this the more it is looking like a standard crab deck. I [continue reading]still favor Scorpion ally because of Calling in Favors and the added covert. No video for the deck in action.
Added: > 1 year ago
I haven't played this deck in a month or so but removing initiates would be a reasonable move when expecting a lot of Phoenix. However, I'm more likely to change to a different ally in that case as initiate is an important component of the deck and I [continue reading] would want to find a conflict char to replace the power that they give.

Congrats on your performance! How often are you able to get diplomat to fire?

Interesting deck and congrats on the 2 1st placements! Have you gotten any honor wins out of this?
