Disclaimer: I’m still a novice so expect somethings I say to be wrong.  Correct me if necessary, so I learn.

 

I’m a bit underwhelmed by Fuzake...he just seems painfully average and I’m not sure we needed another unique Shugenja that costs 3+ and seems born to sacrifice to trigger his effect.

The biggest problem is me.  I love the Yasuki characters and my attempts to build a deck around them have so far proved average at best.

Anyway, if anyone wants to correct my notions please do - I can read them at work until I’m done and can go home and watch Imperial Adviser.

Unfortunately, character pool/choice isn't big enough to make such "side families" thematics decks work yet, and most of the time, such theme decks would end up being Janky and lacking oomph to be fun to play. 

Let's face it, Rokugan's take on "each family has its role" shows us the interdependency of the families and their need of each other to survive. For example, of course the Hida family needs the Yasuki to feed the wall, but if there wasn't the Hida, the Yasuki would be easily wiped out by the crane. 

Currently a Yasuki themed deck would seem to revolve around resources management: cards from the shrewd, getting fate from the sacrifice of your characters (Taka, Broker, but both are costy), play attachments (to get the proc discount) and punish the use of events with Oguri. 

Overall, not enough to make a Yasuki strategy in itself, beyond benefiting of their keywords to enable courtier actions, but definitely some synergy with some Crab themes. 

But indeed, Fuzake doesn't match this classic Yasuki role of resources manager. Not the courtier Keyword and a weird ability not really in line with the rest of crab strats. 

Does Crab need a cost efficient and useful Shugenja? Yes. Is it Fuzake? I don't think so.

Fuzake is something of an homage to this guy: https://l5r.fandom.com/wiki/Fuzake_Garou who is himself the character used by parody fan-fic writer Rich Wulf for his humorous retelling of some of the old stories.

 

It should be noted that Rich was also the story lead for the old game for quite a while.

Yeah.  But I think my favourite bits of his writing are the Rokugan 2000 stuff and Legend of the Hidden Chicken.
