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


Benjoewoo – 5/5
He keeps someone out when he attacks and can potentially gain you resources, which should be often considering how good funeral pyre is. Auto-include because he’s actually useful and likely to stick around in multiple decks because no matter your win condition, you’ll almost always need to swing at least once in a turn.

Kingsley - 4/5
The stats aren't great, but Covert sure is, and Shuichi's action is extremely strong as well. Even when holdings aren't in play, he's often worth playing, and when they are he's excellent. Just watch out for dishonor.

nyxnyxnyx - 3/5
I think this guy should really have costed 3. As he is now, he’s a 3 for 3/3 Covert after your first activation of his ability (which has the same holding requirement as other Crab cards). On subsequent activations, assuming he’s still around, he’s a 2 for 3/3 Covert. Not the most exciting of cards. 

Grendel - 4/5
Powerful keyword. Powerful ability. Relevant stats across the board. 

I Fight Dragons – 4/5
Paying 4 for a 3/3 with Covert is already pretty solid for a unique that can potentially get extra fate from duplicates, but the extra fate gain ability on this card really makes it cool. So long as a holding exists somewhere in play, Shuichi pays back in fate you put onto him over time and that adds up very quickly over a couple of turns. Also, Covert may be the best keyword in the game, so that’s nice too.

Excellent character, great and balanced stats, awesome keyword and nice economy ability. Hard not to love it.
