A contender for the best magistrate in the game. When played with Isawa Mori Seidō, this attacks with 3 glory. The list of characters that have 3 glory or more is a very short one. Most clans have one or two characters that qualify. Crab has zero, and the clans that do have someone might not even play them on the grounds of being bad against dishonoring effects. To add to this, the ones that can compete are essentially clan champions. It feels great when they have to defend with their clan champion against your non-unique magistrate.


Within Phoenix, you could even escort this character with your other high glory characters, or play a stat increase and get your break through a single magistrate.


You need a good reason not to run this card if you play Isawa Mori Seidō.
