Why kobi sensei? I don't see what it does for this deck besides giving potential tempo to scorpion and mantis. If your going to run big attachments you should be running Taitaken, especially with built in unit straighten.

25 guys is way, way too many. Do to the need for gold, and the cost of your attachments, you will be pitching 50% of the bodies you see. in this style of deck you want close to a 50/50 mix of guys to holdings. With that said, crab has the option to run corrupt gold, you have enough good - personalities to make it work.

WotC looks really bad in this deck. Not only do you already have box unit straighten, but you have 5 straighten actions. Its overkill, and  blowing up a dude with an attachment seems like a bad idea.

I think the deck is too slow to beat phx, but we would need to test it out.

Investigation is very, very narrow. I'd drop at least 1 and go to 3 vtd.

Kobi sensei is in for possible going second against mantis and scorpion I like having 9ps plus shutting down a reserve or the mantis lol at guy who gives extra gold. The deck is designed to beat shika, which so far it has crushed. Investigation stops shiho, kolat nonsense and the off chance a ninja action goes off. Wotc is a tester right now, getting rid of force penalties is nice but it's not nessisary.so far I haven't had any problems with the gold, but sometimes computers lie it needs more real life testing.  It's been 50/50 against honor losing favor has really helped when I need to swing and I make them lose the favor. 

As you said needs more testing but so far I've been happy with the results standing fast in crab is stupid good, really appreciate the input rich. Smile

I feel like cutting one dude and adding new order would dramatically increase your chances vs honor.

New order can go in. Rich what corrupt gold holding are you thinking of? Maybe run all of them or just certain ones, like lane of immorality? I'm very curious about it and would like to try it out.

You could cut to 40 cards and run slave pits, house of disgrace, jade mine, famous bazaar, iron mines and some nexus of lies. You would have to commit to an all - lineup though.
