2 gold for 2F with a very relevant battle action and a kicker against farms is too good to pass up. People will play Conscripts even without farms in the environment.

Yeah, Conscripts is ridiculously efficient, has a very good battle action for it's cost (more efficiency), and can come in free in a certain situation - which makes it added holding destruction, which is BONKERS good?

Yeah, Conscripts is stupid good. I don't see how their formula for costing things got all that for 2g.

Story-wise, not much of note here. Sure there's the Lion-Scorpion conflict, but that's hardly important given the larger, looming crisis that's about to render it irrelevant. I'm sure we'll get some new lore snippets tomorrow when the Mantis-Clan previews go live.

The cat follower is cute, though.

The more flavor text I read...

The more Iweko Seiken's betrayal of Kanpeki needs to be in order for Onyx's story to be excusable.

In other news...

Yeah, it'll be great after we lose after the first Kotei Season of Onyx and they go back to the status quo from there. That'll show 'em.

The Mantis stuff as a whole seems.....fairly good for an already strong faction. I'd gripe about the Two-Handed Club that most Spider can't use if I thought it was any good (as there won't be an equivalent 'can only be equipped if you have Shadowlands card).....but it doesn't seem to be playable.

The rest of their stuff, however, yeah, playable. The 'Ranged 1 and draw a card if it destroys something' seems workable for us, given how force-jab is something in the our deck's wheelhouse.

beginning to feel very similar, was looking forward to some of the spider stuff we are getting but as I see more and more flavour text bringing us back down to being the outright bad guys even before we have made our choice is disheartening.

in other news unwanted tutelage made me giggle before sighing once more

My guess is that Seiken will blame Kanpeki and the Spider for the recent strife in the colonies. Hundreds of samurai died in the Traditionalist vs. Progressive fighting, and Seiken probably holds Kanpeki responsible for pitting his little brother against him in a bid for power.

He wouldn't be entirely wrong, either.

I hope its not that, because the Mantis were WAY more vocal and Hiromi was in a position of leadership, leading the major victory over Seiken's supporters and if they just pin it on the Spider... well that would be dumb.

This story wouldn't work if Shibatsu had inherited the throne. Remember that due to design constraints, AEG knew about the broad strokes leading to Onyx for almost a year now.

I know this won't likely happen but what would be interesting would be, if during the power of pan ku if seiken and shibatsu were both effected by him and then left willingly under the guise of a rokuganni victory, biding his time for when one of them came to power. Then when one is on the throne yurishi or another goju over hears the emperor (seiken in this case) talking to pan ku and tells kanpeki. This information causeing his war against the throne knowing, seiken being the empire and all, his words would fall on deaf ears...

this as the story develops it wouldn't be just the spider taking over the empire but could be the spider fighting to remove pan ku madness.

just a thought :)

Maybe it's a remnant of Seiken's encounter with P'an Ku.

I remain very confused how you write a betrayal serious enough to drive the spider to forsake their clan status that could be committed by either heir. Which is to say any indication in the flavour we see will probably be vague at best. Even aeg wouldn't be so clumsy as to fix a kotei choice like the heir selection but telegraph their having done so in the cards.

Phoenix previews up.

I'll take 3x Hasty Defenses please and thank you. The only downside there was I think TA was finally going to fill some holes for me to be able to play brotherhood sensei, but, seeing Hasty Defenses will probably take me right back to Kobi sensei.

Hasty defenses is too bonkers good out of spider against military. Two showing up turn one means they are looking at PS11 Spider. That is pretty crazy.

Though its useless in the political matchups, but that might not be as relevant as the military buff.

Can VtD please just go away like right now? An honored guest + kharma's first form is amusing enough for me to almost consider playing again.

Walking with the Water is also great.
Absent move-in with terrain meta and 3FV is just awesome.
