[FL] Spider Clan Personality: Daigotsu Murota

Post  panku on Sun Jun 19, 2011 4:16 pm

Daigotsu Murota
4F / 3C
-HR/7GC/0PH
Spider Clan * Samurai * Shadowlands * Conqueror * Dark Stalker * Paragon
After Murota enters play: Lose 2 Honor.
Battle: Target an enemy card, which must have no attachments unless Murota has performed a Dark Virtue action this turn: Bow it.

"I have never killed a Naga. I look forward to the experience."

-----------

Given the power level of FL i was anticipating a good non-unique Paragon that might make Paragons playable in EE. All my hopes have been completely curb stomped.

Murota is the epitome if mediocrity. Avg stat line, horrible art and the ability isn't powerful enough to justify the additional cost. This guy is playable, but this is just another example of the poor dark virtue synergies that made paragons garbage all arc.

If i ever find out who is responsible for designing Spider Paragons, i will TP their house. They have yet to print a single good non-unique Paragon all arc. That's 11 consecutive strikes.

Bow a target card without attachments is a decent battle action. Bow any target card if he performed a dark virtue? Seems fine to me...

*shrug* People are so angsty about cards these days.

I don't think he's THAT bad... I mean, he still bows if you don't have dark virtues... so he just gets better with a dark virtue. I think the biggest problem with Spider Paragons was a combination of the mediocre personlities with the ABSOLUTELY HORRID dark virtues. All of the personalities were printed with awesome dark virtue synergy built in, but all the dark virtues were horrible thus making the personalities horrible. If the DT prints some really solid dark virtures next arc, personalities like this will get much better.

That being said, all things being equal, I'd rather run a Lion or Crab personality who would get similar force/gold without the dark virtue limitation. I can't help but feel like this guy should have been 1 more gold and 5f.

Do you know how many playable dark virtues there are that are performed? 2, the new DV from this set and Will. Basically that means he will almost never get to bow through attachments.

So in comparison lets look at Shinjo Junpei, a boxable tactician that bows a card without attachments, but does it from home and potentially negates movement. So if everyone here thinks Shinjo Junpei is poo, then Murota has to be complete shit.

Since he is Dual bugged perhaps they'll be printing more good Dark Virtues in the future. For CE he certainly won't help that deck but for EE he might be pretty decent if Dark Paragons get better support.

Even if there where good dark virtues, the tempo cost on his ability is much too steep. Normally you want to exhaust your personalities abilities before you start playing actions from your hand. If he where to perform a dark virtue in battle, he will most likely eat the next action from your opponent, keeping you from using his ability at all. All of this, just so you can bow a card.

So, unless they start printing dark virtues with good open actions, he basically will only ever bow a card without attachments.

Let me also point out that we already have another personality that is basically the same card. Yoritomo Aranai. She is 9g for 6f so its comparably a wash. Her battle action bows a card with less gold cost, and if she has performed a dark virtue the card will not straighten. She hasn't seen play in Paragon decks because the whole performing dark virtues portion is never active.

If they keep giving us personalities that must perform dark virtues, the abilities get weaker as you can only have so many dark virtues to perform and you won't always have the tempo needed to perform all those actions.

Anyways, ive already mentioned that i think Murota is playable. So far every personality we have gotten for the Paragon theme this arc has been playable at best, horrible at worst. That's assuming dark the virtues are good, which they have not been.

I'm upset because you can't make competitive decks out of just playable cards. At some point you need Powerful personalities to give your decks an edge. So far going into EE, we have: Miki, who is complete garbage; Taishu, who is good against control but blank against anything else; Gyoken, who is good against attachment decks, but blank against anything else and finally Murota, a playable personality who is basically a early edition bench warmer. So, Paragons are already starting out poorly as there isn't a single CE Paragon i'd be happy to see reprinted in the EE base set.
