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.

2nd Place Crane/Phoenix Deck - Release Event (Athens 90 players) [Version: 1]

Swiss Rounds (5-0)
The 2 first rounds were won by dishonoring against lion and dragon and the rest 3 by breaking their Stronghold. The games were fast ( 'cause of Phoenix Splash). When i started playing Crane i was testing them with Scorpion Splash for board control but the games were too slow and most of the losses were by dishonoring.
Top8 (Dragon/Lion)
The game was even from the beggining until the end, but spending more fate on my characters (control) was the key to break his stronghold as he had only 3 against 6 of mine.
Top4 (Scorpion/Phoenix)
I was nearly dishonored but the draw mechanics and Kakita Asami saved my game. (MVP especially against scorpion decks).
Final (Crab/Lion)
I played again with my best friend which i met in the swiss. It was a tough game. I pushed him very hard, but it wasn't enought to break his stronghold, that i attack twice. I lost against a heavy military attack when he played the last card from his hand.

No Shadowlands or Maho, as per the tenets of the Jade Hand.
Deck finished in the Semifinals of the 2018 Seattle Grand Kotei. It lost to the winning Crab deck in an extremely close match.

Overall record was 8-3.

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

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.

One with the Elements [Version: 7]

Phoenix with Crane splash. Please comment! I appreciate any suggestions. Crane is the best influence hands down! Im currently undefeated. I am undefeated so far. I have played Dragon, lion, Scorpion (gave me a little bit of trouble), and Crab (they never stood a chance also I would always use my stronghold to cancel out the effects of their champion).

Crane Control [Version: 1]

Crane with lots of control options. Splashed scorpion for ultimate event lockdown and some value attachment-hate. Initial testing shows that the first 2 round are hard versus quick decks (like lion). Against slow decks (phoenix, dragon) it plays a bit easier. Not tested vs scorpion, crane mirror and crab (which imo should be the most difficult matchup)
