Re: 3 Kobai, 3 Yoshi 3Nunchaku and 3 CoaaT
I've been tinkering with an "Iron Dragon" slow honor runner
that uses the same concept. However, I'm not all that
enthusiastic about have to discard a bunch of cards to the
"Mountains Below" to find a terrain. Since there's no way
to recycle those cards back in, and every card counts in a
well tuned deck, I've been thinking about adding Hiruma
Osuno (Crab Clan Oracle of Earth, 4F 5C 10G 5Fh 3Ph,
Unique). Even though he's fairly expensive a good Iron
Mountain deck should be able to get him by turn 3;
furthermore he can destroy two terrains per battle without
bowing and also bow to retrieve a terrain from your deck to
play in a battle.
I have a question about his ability in conjunction with the
restrictions on generating actions in a battle:
Assume battle at province 1 - I defend with a Daini, Osuno
stays in the fief.
Can I use Osuno's abilities to affect this battle? His
ability to blow up terrains says "at this battle" so I'd say
no for that one.
But, his ability to play a terrain doesn't mention opposing
forces or this battle. I've got a peep at the battle
(condtion 1) and the action would be targeting the current
battle (condition 2).
