Legend of the Five Rings Decks



  Deck

Court of the Elements [Version: 48]

I WON THE 2ND PROVING GROUNDS AT PAX UNPLUGGED IN PHILADELPHIA AND GOT A SEAT AT WORLDS!!!! Phoenix with Crane splash. Please comment! I appreciate any suggestions. Crane is the best influence hands down! Scorpion and lion gave me a little bit of trouble. I mainly win through dishonor because I bid 1 every turn but against scorpion I find it better to go military and bid high when I can.

BAM BAM!!! [Version: 4]

I am a phoenix player and I built this deck to show my friend I could make a crab deck that is better than his since he refuses to take advice from others while being extremely arrogant and obnoxious about his deck.

Essentialist Scorpion, a Philosophy [Version: 6]

Reject the "jack of all trades/master of none" approach and capitalize on Scorpion's natural strengths by further developing their already impressive ability to control your opponent's resources.

Crane/Crab Top 8 Winter Warfare Athens (64 players) [Version: 1]

Swiss Rounds 5-1
I played against 3 scorpion, 2 lion, 1 crane. I lost from a scorpion 'cause i missplayed, otherwise i think i would have won it.
Top 8
I lost from the winner of the tournament, which i practiced with in previous days. He did some last changes in his deck and that was enough to win me with the element of surprise.

Crab/Lion deck Top 4 Winter Warfare Athens(64 players) [Version: 1]

Swiss rounds were pretty easy.I made it to top 8 with a 5-1

First round was vs Crane that it is one of my worst matchups but i had a great dynasty breakdown so i snowballed and broke stronghold in turn 3

Second round was vs a very good scorpion player that made me pretty anxious,i made a stronghold break at turn 6 never been under 5 honor the whole game

Third round I lost vs a lion(7th turn) that had a magistrate that pretty much made me something less than nothing xD and i had no rout,both of us hit eachothers stronghold twice.

Fourth round was a scorpion match up. It was scorpion dropbear spending no fate at any character he got so i won by turn 3

Fifth round was vs a phoenix that got me pretty low on honor but i had a stronghold break at turn 4 after getting him choked by card and field pressence.

Sixth round was a hard but fast game(21 min game) vs a scorpion we both had assasinations being played in turn 1 and 2 getting us to 3-4 honor each round we bid low so we had dynasty control,mines and a good court games won the field pressence so i got a stronghold break in round 5.

Top 8

Top 8 match was the most difficult game of the tournament for me.Crab vs Crab.I broke 4 provinces i had never bid 1 in the whole game but still had some honor left. I broke 3 provinces with iron mines on them so i could get the field pressence and pressured his card draw. he had early keeper iniciates so i focused on getting the earth ring in both offence and defence.I broke his stronghold at turn 10 with a force of 27.

Top 4

I played vs a very good player from our country the only one that had a 6-0 on swiss.I had a good dynasty/conflict but i tried to rush it down to his stronghold so i made a few missplays in the proccess that made me lose some key units early. I had no other choice but get a high bid to get me saved. Lost by dishoning eventually.

Finished top crab

Imperial Unicorn/Crane Alliance [Version: 3]

Well if everyone thinks Unicorn has poor card quality... I'll just run non Unicorn cards! Perhaps the Imperial Court will learn something from the Unicorn's strange foreign ways

Crab/Lion deck Banzai! Athens (90players) Winner [Version: 1]

Swiss rounds
4-1 in the swiss rounds(hoped for more rounds but it was a one day event) all of the swiss round games were 30-45 minutes.I finished almost first each time.
I lost from my best friend's Crane/phoenix in the last swiss round,he scored 5-0
Top 8
I played vs a Lion deck,i had the field advantage from the start so my deck snowballed
Top 4
I was nearly dishonored from a Scorpion/phoenix player.I high bidded twice to get the field superiority,almost lost from a display of power and the abuse of air ring
Final
I met again with my friend's Crane/Phoenix. It was a big game,he had me cornered for the four first rounds he broke 3/5 of my provinces and hit my stronghold twice.Our honor was even,he discarded 9 cards from my hand in total.I was breaking 1 province each round so he had only the stronghold province to protect.After wasting all of our good cards i made a good military attack and got his stronghold killed
