From the article review - http://www.cardgamed...view-crab-r2098


Benjoewoo – 5/5
Card draw and fate gain for to effectively make this character a resource gain from almost any angle, with the bonus of having a non-0 positive number military stat make this a solid inclusion and auto-include. It can be a poor choice to play when the board requires more significant force counts, but that risk is far outweighed by this being generally useful and a good way to get a body that maintains or gains resource advantage.

Kingsley - 5/5
Amazing autoinclude card. You get a body to use and potentially sacrifice, it pays for itself, and you draw a card to boot. This card's strength is a significant component of why I'm not that thrilled with Eager Scout.

nyxnyxnyx - 5/5
There’s no question this guy is good. An interesting question is, is he better than Bayushi Liar? I had that conversation with a bunch of people and I think he actually is just slightly worse than Bayushi Liar overall. But you still jam 3 copies of this in every Crab deck likely from now till the death of the game. (P.S: He’s a Bushi)

Grendel - 3/5
Cost for stats is probably the worst in the game, but it allows you to roll resources to another turn and draw a card. If you can take the tempo hit you can come out ahead. A reoccurring theme with Crab. My only fear with dynasty characters like this is in multiples the tempo hit can potentially be to much. This compounds with other cards like Eager Scout and Vanguard Warrior and can give you very high variance on your dynasty flops. 

I Fight Dragons – 5/5
The sheer economy of this card means that I think he’ll see play even in decks that don’t care for the sacrifice theme. You put 1 fate on layaway and in the meantime you get a 1/0 (or 2/1 with the stronghold on defense), then get your fate and a card back later. Envoy is just economic value in a game that has a fixed economy.
