Keeper of Void is a good role, as being void-attacked is a common experience for us. Also, that big stack of influence allows us some nice fishing for outside attachments.
My initial build has been Dragon/Crab, for Watch Commander and Reprieve.
Reprieve has been VERY good, as it can help keen a voltron going one turn longer, or more importantly, it can make a strong 2-coster safe to play fate onto, barring DOUBLE assassinate. Agasha Swordsmith, Niten Adept, and to a lesser extent, Seeker of Enlightenment are all really good for their cost, but you really want at least 2 fate on them. Reprieve is even better for Niten Adept, because while it is in play it serves an additional function - powering the ability text.
Watch Commander, otoh, has been okay, but not as solid as I hoped, as Dragon don't really put Dishonour pressure on opponents. A savvy opponent will be bidding low till they find Restoration of Balance anyway, and Dragon tends to need to draw a lot of cards to set its combos up.
So right now I'm feeling less enthused by Dragon/Crab.
Now thinking Dragon/Crane.
Above Question isn't that great in Crane but I think it could serve Dragon really well, as it stops Assassinate, and more importantly, it negates almost every soft control bow-effect, which are the absolute bane of dragon. Nothing worse than having 8 strength in one character getting bowed.
The other 7 influence though, I'm not so sure where to go with. Height of Fashion is kind of expensive, and is too one-sided in its stats for Dragon's more balanced approach, though as we can only take 2 copies that might be okay anyway. Duelist Training could be easy to win with very high military values on one character, but it starts getting too much eggs-in-one-basket.
As an added bonus, none of these three cards belong in my Crane deck!
Any thoughts on this or other alliances?
