@hobbyman

I'll try to answer some of your questions.

1. For the Dynasty side there are 1x of some personalities and some that are 2x of mostly for flexibility. Sumiko, for example, is not there for her ability, that going o [continue reading]ff is just a bonus, she is there because she is a 4/4 personality with 1 Glory so she doesn't get too weak if she is dishonored. Toturi similar, for his 6 Mil that occationally is worth it. Also so that the provinces don't get stuck increasing the risk of flipping the same Unique in separate provinces. They are also just 1x off because I don't like to buy 5 cost personalities too often since it stops me from bowing the opponent with Midnight Revels sometimes.
On the Conflict side there is only Pesant's Advise. Its there to have a chance to counter Kanjo and Kurada districts, sometimes Shintome Encampment and rarely else. I don't want to draw two copies in my hand. Think of it also as a meta for the top tables. If my opponent sees I have a meta card in my deck he plays differently than if I don't. Assassinate is a good example of that. If I don't have Assassinate in my deck my opponent is free to put fate on good cheap personalities like Brash Samurai, Agasha Swordsmit and Bayushi Liar without any chance of loosing that investment.

2. It's the place Dragon is in at the moment. We face opponents we cannot outmatch in pure stats in conflict unless it's by luck or spending a lot of cards so we tend to end up on the defense more than we like so we better be prepared to do so when we need.
Often I buy just 1 personality on the first turn. Optimally I play 2, one solid and one cheap. Depending on draw there is also the option of buying one solid an play a Tattood Wanderer for ping/scouting

3. Yes. It's doable also because even if you don't have the Daishio the duels still help win conflicts. Kitsuki Investigator and Policy Debate help scout if the opponent have the attachment meta before playing a Daishio and also simply play it into conflict and play Defend Your Honor to counter any Event meta. With the Crane pack (that wasn't legal in Birmingham) I've added Gossip to the deck to counter attachment meta or other useful things as needed.

4. As I see it Dragon cannot simply Brawl it's way to victory at the moment. We don't have any chance of matching the force in play against too many clans for it to be any viable option. Unicorn can easily outclass us there. Crane, with honoring through their stronghold, can probably do the same. Phoenix with their Supernatural Strength too. And when we can match them we do so at a greater cost (more cards/fate and so on) so we loose by attrition in the end.
That is why I opt for this path to victory.

5. It's a delicate balance of picking your battles and try to hit them for multiple duels in a conflict where you can win the duels and they cannot move away. Sometimes it means dueling the weak personality accompanying their larger unit in the conflict and sometimes, regretfully, it means issuing a duel you cannot win. I usually try not to do that unless I don't loose anything by loosing the duel. Like issuing a Mirumoto's Dojo duel when my personality has no fate and so on.

The path of the Dragon is rarely easy and that's why we have the most fun. When we manage to do well we know we have earned it! :)

I played a lot of games during the event but here is a brief summary of what I can remember and apologize if I get anything wrong.
All my victories where dishonor victories, although some I would have been able to win by military also.
[continue reading]r /> Game 1 vs Unicorn
I saw quickly that he was splashing Dragon so I needed to play carefully. I managed to set up a Duelist and had enough duels to lower his hand size and honor enough that the pressure was too much and he was dishonored out.

Game 2 vs Crane
This game did not go as easily. He managed to win favor and play Yoshi . I managed to find a province that wasn't Magistrate Station to attack (I think it was Pilgrimage) so I could attack back. We broke provinces and both where attacking the other's stronghold. If I remember correctly the key to victory in this game was Duelist Training bowing personalities when he was attacking my stronghold as well as bowing with Midnight Ravels.

Game 3 and 4 where against Phoenix.
They kind of blur together in my memory and I don't remember any details.

Game 5 vs Unicorn
He started and played Chagatain with 2 fate. In hindsight I should have passed there because I had a conflict character in hand but I played a character and he got the passing fate. That meant that he could charge a Boarder Rider into the first conflict and had enough to win it. I played Kazue into that conflict to duel but it didn't go as planned and I overcommitted to that conflict. I had 1 fate on Kazue so his attack for Void would have cost me all my investment so I attacked back. Ran into the province that makes every conflict military and it meant that Chagatai was able to break two more provinces and honor by claiming Ring of Fire. I could not stop his attack on the stronghold on turn 2.

Game 6 vs Scorpion
It was a Kyuden Bayushi dishonor deck. He had a lot of Covert so my strategy was more aggressive than usual (can't defend if he covert) and using Favorable Ground and Hawk Tattoo wisely. Also defending with smaller bodies saved provinces. Late in the game he attacked for Ring of Fire and I defended with a Kitsuki Investigator and saw that he had 2x I can Swim and 3x Backanded compliments in hand. I managed to win that confict by moving the needed force in with a Hawk Tattoo.
Key points to the game was that he stole at least one Daishio with Calling in Favours. He was low on honor because of Assassination, bidding, duels and dishonored personalities leaving play. Most of the game it was a bid 1 situation but I was considerably higher in honor. When the game was drawing close to time both had broken 1 province and we where close on honor after him playing 3x Backhanded Compliments. I had a few more cards in hand due to that. In the last turn I broke another of his provinces and when time was called he conceded since it was clear I would be higher on tiebreaker points.

There was another play into the finals event on the Sunday but since I was already qualified I played another "fun" deck in that event and didn't do too well and I didn't really expect it with that deck.

Top 32 vs Unicorn
Playing in the bracket games has always been tense so I don't remember the details of the match so much. I do remember that he didn't have Enless planes so I was free to attack his provinces with strong personalities by themselves without fear of them dying suddenly.
If memory serves we both broke 3 provinces and where attacking the other's stronghold but in the end I managed to play enough duels with a Character with a Daishio attacked to dishonor him out.

Top 16 vs Unicorn
I had reasonable expectations on this matchup since I have played many games against Unicorn. Fate would set a different path. I bought a Raitsugu on the first turn with 2 fate. He was first player an attacked for Void and after some considderation I didn't defend. I attacked back and broke one of his provinces, I think by playing an attachent on Raitsugu rather than using a Banzai!
Next turn I think I managed to break one more of his provinces with a Kituski Investigator with a Tattooed Wanderer attached but he broke 2 provinces in turn.
In short, aside from the first turn, I didn't see any useful personalites. I think I managed to play a Doomed Shugenja on turn 2 but on turn 3 I had 3 personalities out wih 1 Mil stat because I hadn't flipped any. I was bidding 5, 4 and then 5 for cards but I didn't see any Banzai or Mirumoto's Daishio's. I did get some attachments like Daymio's Favor, Cloud the Mind and Duelist training but when he broke my stronghold my hand concisted of 2x Finger of Jade, 3x Defend Your Honor (that I could not use because he had higher force) and one other card that I don't remember.
