  1. I get the feeling that the only decks to actually make good use of composure would be dueling decks whose duels kind of force the opponent to try to win them, or a Scorpion duel deck that utilizes Social Puppeteer.
  2. The last several decklists I made out has had a majority core set population. I hope the next cycle has cards that make it harder to decide between core set cards and the fresh cycle.
  3. With the wording on proving grounds, it does look like you can use it to react on both, since both characters won a duel. I am not sure how often this will come up, though, since it would be a bad play to use her duel where it is not mostly assured to win against an opponent who has proving grounds up
  4. I am looking forward to disguising in a character with a non-unique army character. "I disguised myself as an entire army, and they didn't know it was only one person. HA!"
  5. The article says you can play a disguised character anytime you can play a character from hand.
  6. Miya Library will only grab characters and not holdings.
  7. I have mind barb in mars with two normal mind barbs in the deck, and a poison wave in brobnar.
  8. It is even better when their province has an action rather than an action, and you attacked with a child of the plains to eject out of that province. It would be nice to get out of Shameful when you can.
  9. I like the idea of it firing from a shameful display myself.
  10. Utaku Tetsuko seems to be the strongest card in the pack. And that Scorpion got a conflict courtier in-clan that doesn't cost five fate is nice. Shinibi decks might be a thing, but I am not sure yet. It may still be missing their Togashi Mitsu. Personally, I do not know how many of the cards from the pack I would end up using competitively, though I do see myself playing shinobi for fun at local games. I see Doji Fumiki being played as Crane has a few bow effects going on. I am not sure about the new stronghold yet, though ready effects are pretty strong, being able to take an honor from an opponent is really strong.
  11. The cards previewed are interesting so far. I am not sold on dueling yet, but maybe this boxed set can change my mind. I like that there is a neutral card that lets you refuse a duel, though if dueling becomes too good it may force decks to take a couple of copies just to stop some duels from going off. I do not feel composure will work out well, since having effects rely on having a higher bid has not worked out so well for me with Scorpion so far. Time will tell, I guess. I am looking forwards to this set, though. More cards to use is welcomed. I hope there are at least two copies of any neutral provinces in this box, as I do not like having to share cards between two decks, even if they are provinces and not shuffled in a deck.
  12. Look under setup, the language for fate for the player not chosen as first player is no longer present.
  13. As far as I know, all of the promos have been extended art, which this is not, and the symbols on the promos I have seen have been different from what is in Toshi Ranbo. I am going to hope there is another release after the Scorpion clan pack this year, I do not want another drought like between the last two cycles.
  14. From Toshi Ranbo, we learn of a new set coming out this year, as it has a new set symbol and a 2018 copyright. Maybe another cycle at the end of the year?
  15. The game has had just over a cycle and the developers said they wanted to take it slow with honor victory. Honor needs some tools, but it has to be done right otherwise the restricted list will get longer than it should be. And honor will need counter effects that won't be overly abused by dishonor decks. A Game of Thrones power rush deck can be a good model to follow as long as there are ways to hinder the march towards victory. Time will tell.
  16. It would be nice to only get one of the stronghold, but that hasn't been how FFG has produced these types of cards in the past besides Disciples of the Void. The extra copies of the new stronghold will just have to sit in the core box with the extra copies of the other strongholds and clan provinces. Just as identities in Netrunner had to do.
  17. It is my duty to completely drain you. Of honor, preferably, but of the will to play against all of our control cards as well.
  18. It looks like Dispatch is card 99 of the cycle, which is a bummer for Unicorn at the Gen Con Kotei. I hope Uni get other cards like this to help boost them up a bit in the first four packs of the Elemental cycle.
  19. I also see FFG having the Elemental cycle releasing rapidly so the entire cycle is out for a major tournament, and that tournament being winter court as most likely. I also see all of the dynasty packs for it available at Gen Con since that is into the third quarter a fair bit. Good read.
  20. That would make sense. It just seems weird aGoT has their event in already but not L5R. I suppose there could be details they are working out yet.
