-----------------------------

I changed around the gold a bunch... and now I feel like I have too much sometimes, and not seeing enough personalities. But its miles better then no gold which was my original problem. Personalities, I am still mucking around with. I have a fantasy I can use the Kitsuki to punish all the dishonored people my duels create, plus they are duelist. I may drop Kimura, Forgiver of Sins for Kalen, but his gold cost is so expensive, and Kimura is free most of the time.

Fate wise, I am needing to test this out, in my frictionless void of gold fishing it seems to work well. The weapons are attaching, I am seeing duels, I believe I have some good synergy, but I need to test against steel to see if this is holding water. I would like to run with all five rings, but maybe that is just a pipe dream.

Thoughts?

16-18 is standard from what I've seen. Not a fan of yasuki trader, the chances of seeing the shuffled cards are marginal at best. I would only run 2 venegeful populace. Having too many 3g cost holdings will make your gold really clunky, I'd drop the traveling markets in favor of 4g or 2g holdings.

I'd only run 1-2 copies of nokkai, every copy you see after the first is basically a blank 2f for 6g in a deck that is hurting for force.
I don't like any of the kitsuki, low/no force and above box honor requirements is a bad combo for military.

Youe missing the best duel in ivory, exposing weakness, a battle kill duel. I'd drop sanctioned duel to make room for it. Just remember, you have to bow the sensei to use its bow effect, having too many limited duels has diminishing returns.

Kimura is only good if you intend to run air in almost all your games. He's a dead draw if you have to pay gold for him.

Ya, I dropped Weakness Exposed for its low focus value. But I suppose I can absorb the single Focus of 2.

Otherwise, thanks for the suggestions. I cannot disagree with any of that.

I am trying to shy away from the 4 gold holdings, but I do like Productive Mine.

I still need to do testing. But if anyone else sees any flaws, has suggestions, or else have some insights, your welcome to cast them.

I still don't like mixing and matching Colonial Dojo with Secluded.  IMHO you should be running one, or the other, not both.  You are risking some very awkward gold flips currently.

Aside from that, I think the best thing you can do is just playtest the hell out of this.  You need to know it inside and out.

At 2 focus stand or run is not worth it. You also have too many weapons, 14+3 In Stillness is effectively 17 weapons. Drop 3 dotanukis and a In stillness for more proactive actions, like entrentched or ruthless determination.

@sleep, ya I have had bad flips from those before. It is rare, but constancy is the key and can ruin you in a tourney. I will try some different holding mixes, and see what I can come up with. Try and stick to a 2 good cost. The Johny in my wants to put Oracle of the Void so badly! And consider it an event I buy for six good.

@Rich. Really? Slimming down the weapons? I will trust your judgement and try with less, but I have found I had just enough. But I will still try it and see if that gives me the edge I need.

You are also missing Elemental Adroitness, which might be the best card in the deck.

Personally, i would drop kiaken as i don't feel it gives enough force, putting it on a 3f personality only makes your guy 4 force and still easily in the range of most r/m actions. At 5 force you can feel a little safe, but i wouldn't be comfortable till my guys where at 6 force.

You should probably drop Shrine to Hachiman as well, the only weapon you have that benefit is the Kaikens.

Shrine to Hachiman was there for that weapon and also Vengful Populace. Need the weapons straight for the defense is good. The problem is I am not sure what other holdings could go in it's place. 


And ya, the 1 Force bums me out, but it's force swing in a battle is amazing. But I need to threaten to take provinces in the first place. :/
