two 4g shugenja, one with cav, looks like my control deck just got the option to get aggressive if need be.

Onita is awesome and both duelists lack printed honor losses so that's a plus.

Scour will continue to be a problem, but, some really interesting stuff.

The Chuda are back!

Sensei is awesome

Pretty excited with these previews so far. Now let's get greedy!

TWO DUELISTS?! i'm into that. especially a force duelist, shenanigans notwithstanding. the duel is not fantastic, but its certain well suited to our personality base. duel, reduce force, slap em with fear. i mean, thats a lotta steps for a bow or possible kill. but still. niiiice.

They're all really really mediocre to bad. Blank guys, more "can only do if you're losing" traits, and dueling is still garbage. Sorry Spider, nothing to see here move along.

DAT ONITA ART.

This looks like a very decent crop of previews.

Caveat, other than the Ninube, not really packing a lot of proactive actions on these guys, however.

EDIT: At second glance, it is a lot of blank guys, or guys who don't really do much immediate. Less fond of things.

onita is good, for a duelist. and may give duelist theme what it needs when combined with a few of the other cards in the set for spider.

Tairao/Onita dueling FTW!

You can pretty much bully duel everything

Unicorn magistrate will probably find the duel more useful.

Some nasty stuff you got there. Lets see what some madman will make with the new cards :)

Spider has Compassion often because we don't care about the first province versus military... I can't wait for the Compassion traits to let me take several provinces at once when I decide to attack them.

That is true, Spider can usually let the first province go against Military, but against Honor/Dishonor/Enlightenment?

Compassion's just as blank as our Stronghold is against those three.

Ok, before I mass review. One question I have been waiting for months.

How the hell does Tomiyama, who is horrifically tainted, NOT have honor loss, but Daigotsu Hachiko does...

Compassion sucks if its not on a political card. Susumu needed Compassion, not these guys.

Onita and tomiyama are pretty good and help to speed up the dueling deck which is what it needed.

The 4g ninja has an amazing statline, one of the best personalities previewed this set imo.

I'm pretty happy with what we got this set.

Onita's a Murder Princess with a Sword. I'm less fond of the rest of what I've seen, though we still have the IA and l5r stuff (which is, of course, since it's the Spider, late).

I know Ensorcelled Longsword sees some play, at least.

Singing Blade would be....amusing with her and a Come One At a Time.

Yajinden Sensei, until proven otherwise, might be the best sensei spider has access to.

Seriously, all those bonkers good undead followers now are completely playable.

Its a dawn of a new day for spider, a dawn of the dead :twisted:

i hate to be so negative but all i see is low force, honor lossses, and duelists. If your having fun with a dueling deck thats great but none of this is going to bring spider up to speed with scorpion mantis and phoenix

No, nothing is. l5r expansions are about the rich getting richer, and the poor getting poorer.

If you're expecting Spider to get caught up in an expansion, you're forgetting that the last two times Spider started an arc bad (Samurai, Emperor) Spider ended the arc bad as well. The Design Team has never successfully rebalanced Spider after a poor start to an arc, and Ivory isn't going to be any different.

exodus of the spider is interesting. all about darkness inside's flavor, but i'm not clear at all who is actually in the art. is kanpeki dressing like daddy now?

THANK DAIGOTSU! Exodus of the Spider is what got leaked MONTHS ago, and I have had to sit here and wait through it all not telling anyone.

The sensei is fantastic and makes undead playable. As for everything else:

Toniyama: 3/3 blank overcost guy that I may be able to pay six gold as an open action to buy him if I'm losing against military. Against anything else he's an overcosted blank 3/3 guy. Whoopie!

Onita: Can be killed by a ranged 1 unless she hulks up, then she's a 1 chi duelist on the defense. Woooo! Good against high chi shugs decks if you know, dueling wasn't terrible.

Aitso: Such a ludicrous restriction, overcosted and understatted. The bow through attachments is nice if half the personalities played right now didn't have 3 chi.

Kenteiru: Decently statted with a huge drawback of losing three honor versus dishonor. Gets better if you're losing. Man they really want Spider to lose lots.

Strike of the Obsidion Blade: Meh? It's not a waste of carboard per say, but again investing up to five cards for a bad force plink in an environment with Courage Beyond Question exists? Yeah that's not good at all.

Legion of the Ninth Kami: The only real good card out of the previews, especially coupled with the amazeballs sensei.

Yajiden Sensei: Undead baby! All day er'ryday!

I think he is......and I do not think I like that, just because that look was Daigotsu's, and I had grown fond of the differences in Kanpeki's look from the look of his father.

Mind, it'd be an effective terror tactic, as Daigotsu is still one of the great boogeymen of the setting.

he's got shadowlands on his new version, which is supposedly on l5r.com except the linkis busted. so yeah. kanpeki is tainted. and maybe changing up his style?
