So funny story, I played this yesterday on a 7-man tourney, placed 1st against Crab Shuggies and 2 Shika Mantis decks. This deck also has 4 pre-games against Phoenix, Lion, Unicorn and Spider to which it all won. Haven't tested against Honor/Dishonor but I think I know how it will end, and it will not be too well.
This deck has explosive gains after T4 (around 4 to 6 honor). Highest ever was 10 after bringing a Jaru out for 6, 2 from Temple fortresses, and another 2 from Terumoto plus honored sensei. I am thinking of another build where it focuses on using fortifications to take advantage of our PS, but for now:
Yogo Junzo's Angels
3 Honored Sensei
3 Summer Court
3 Suana Dojo
3 Temple Fortress
1 Counting House
3 A growing Rift - hinders T3-T5 attacks, but is also useful if you already have clouted the whole board leaving your opponents limited choices for attackers)
3 Flashy Technique - very powerful since we have a high PS.
3 Inexplicable Challenge - I'm still not too sold on this card, esp in an attachment based environment. 2 honor is nice but I would rather put something more defensive which either bows a unit or gives force redux.
2 Lookout Post - this was originally a block supply but changed it last minute because i knew i'd be facing mantis. But surprisingly, I didn't need it against them afterall since my PS was really tough to crack.
3 Your Past - can't go home w/o it
2 Control - really helpful against super units
3 Imperial Summons - never fails me
3 Strategic Withdrawal - Remove your presence while giving a force jab
3 Oppression - Removes your pressence while giving a province boost
2 Combat at court - removes your presence while giving a blanket force jab
3 Alliance Threatened - combos great with the 3 aforementioned cards
3 Encircled Terrain - your trump card
1 Hidden Mach - very powerful card. filter your fate, then gives you that last minute game changing action (flashy tech, growing rift, Jaru, imperial summons). I'm thinking of making this a 3-of
1 Progressive - didn't build aroubd this, but it's nice to have one
3 Official Sanction - another control card. I use it mostly to negate next straighten more than outright bow (due mainly to me having 2 ph peeps)
So how did I beat mantis?
