This is going to be the best lion sensei by far
But seriously, Lion or Dragon are the big ones for me with this.
Lion gives it the greatest advantage against dishonor, -1 starting honor means 19 sources of dishonor with 9ps as well... good fun.
Dragon gives it the toolbox utility of Earth,, Air, and even Water while starting at -4 for 16 sources of dishonor for the loss.
I wouldnt use it any lower then dragon on the starting honor scale... too easy for dishonor which is a pity as the crab box would have been fantastic.
Funny enough this sensei is terrible with spider, starting at -8 means they only have to ping us 12 times, without us able to even try to gain some of it back.... meh. But to be fair, Goju and Yajinden are better played out of spider then this one.
Gold should be fine, if we ever got to another set or two I guarentee this would have support, you can already feel the push they are trying to make to give older players their oni decks back.
This sensei should have existed though in the Ivory 1 base set however, that we had to wait 2 years just to finally be able to play oni is nonsense. either way its up there with Goju and Bitterlies as the biggest swinger sensei this set. The meta was about to be tossed on its head, too bad the game died.
