Benjoewoo – 5/5
This is one of the few cards and the only neutral card that draws you a card. It will likely be auto-include for most factions in the core set only environment, being phased out as more efficient and higher utility holdings are released.

Imperial Storehouse trades a single turn’s dynasty slot for a conflict card. I like that trade.

Grendel - 2/5
My rogue opinion is that currently in the game these are not worth running unless you are bidding 5 every turn or ending every game at 1 honor. Losing the opportunity to play a character is very devastating as tempo decides a lot in this game, and watching the board state reset after a turn only to flip your provinces and *draw a conflict card* instead of a Lions Pride Brawler.

I could be proven wrong as to how the competitive meta will develop though.

Kingsley - 3/5
While mostly appealing only to decks that will be bidding low, this provides a bit of extra draw - the problem being that dynasty draws are often more valuable than conflict ones. In situations where dishonor is more of a threat, this card will increase significantly in value.

I notice a natural synergy with Daidoji Nishima and Staging Ground.

 

Trade the Storehouse for a card, refill face down, use Nishima to flip that card face up. No tempo loss in getting cards to the play area, one card gained in hand, though it's action intensive so will likely mean the other player gets the bonus fate.

 

Also, of course, playing with low Honour Bids may synergise well with a Crane-like emphasis on honour victories, as the game goes on.
