Phoenix Rock-hard Enlightenment Deck

Post  Aaronious on Fri May 06, 2011 4:52 pm

Hey, y'all:

See the title for my deck concept.

Basically, I want to use a lot of Earth-movers using spells like Jaws of Stone to preserve my territories until I can amass an army of golems and well-equipped shugenja to defend, instead. Meantime, my win condition is enlightenment.

A couple of questions: (sorry, I'm a newb still.)

Are spells considered strategies? Or are they equipment? If they are equipment, do they count as strategies when used?
If they are equipment, I think my idea already fell apart, since I would need too much space for spells to allow enough strategies.

Are there limits as to who can use which spells? For example, can a Fire/Void shugenja use an Earth spell? If the example is acceptable, does he gain the Earth keyword while it is equipped? Some spells say, "while he is Earth." Is that a reference to cards that negate keywords?

I know everybody hates Enlightenment. Is it supposed to get any development love anytime soon?

There is no such thing as "equipment" in L5R. There are "attachments", which, as the name implies, covers anything that can be "attached" to a personality. An attachment, or an action from an attachment, is not considered a strategy. When a card references a strategy, it is specifically referencing a red bordered fate card with the two sword symbol in the upper left hand corner.

People love enlightenment! It's fun, difficult to accomplish (and rightfully so), and not a negative play experience like some control decks. Enlightenment is less about board control and defense, and more about combos. The deck requires a very high amount of synergy amongst its cards, so that you can set up perfect turns where you get 3-4 rings out and then hopefully the last ring comes easily.
