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

 

Kingsley - 4/5
While in some situations this ability is near-blank, you do get a chunk of stats and the ability can be great in big battles or 
in dishonor-focused decks.

nyxnyxnyx - 4/5
Extremely annoying and threatening. Dishonor is a lot easier than honor, at least in the core set meta, so it’s a 1 honor swing in the relevant direction. 

Grendel - 4/5
One of the few dishonor cards that can you get there and once there put a serious choke effect on the opponent.

I Fight Dragons β€“ 4/5
This card is one of the most obnoxious cards in the game. By adding a cost of 1 honor to any card your opponent plays, you really make them think twice about how much they want to invest in the conflict, and you get nice value out of the card either way. It also gives decent stats for its cost, to boot. Nice!

Can this card be used multiple times in one conflict, allowing you to react to every single card played in that conflict? Four cards played equals four honor lost?

 

Focusing on the (Unlimited) key word.

Yep, four cards played = 4 honor lost.

Yep, four cards played = 4 honor lost.

Two Watch Commanders would certainly exacerbate the issue ;) 

This feels like a very good card :o Especially the unlimited use! Certainly 5/5!

Good card. It's a defense against decks focusing more in cards than characters (like scorpion). Can be played around by good players, but still useful.

How does this play against the cursed card of the Lion, Kitsu Spiritcaller? If they dig a card based on a Spiritcallers action, is that considered playing a card?

Spiritcaller "put[s] into play" which is not the same as "play" as per the RRG.
