| First of all, against PCP, you need Iron Mountain. You want to be able
to put defenders where they are needed.
Good call. Frankly, nobody should be using the Mountain Keep anymore.
Iron Mountain's higher family honor is vital to the types of decks you want
to run off it (basically, honor-runners or decks with Mizuochi).

| For personalities, to protect against PCP and Horde/Nio, you need a
personality base like this:
| 3x Mirumoto Bujun
| 3X Mirumoto Yuyake
| 3x Mirumoto Daini
| 3x Togashi Shinseken
Hrm. I like his personality selection better, but replace Taki with
Yuyake, get more Kaagis, and if PCP's a problem, swap out Bujun for
Shinseken. That'll give a hearty, rapid

| 3x Gold Mine
| 3x Jade Works
| 3x Gambling House (pack high focus values)
| 3x Small Farm
| 1x Master Smith
| 2x Sanctified Temple
| Charter of the Dragon Clan - it's off the box, even with Nio, and it'll
let you force out the Taki's and Yoshi's.
I'd skip out on the Master Smith and Gambling Houses and add Merchant
Caravan (or Large Farm) and another Sanctified (or Kabuki Troupe).

| I'd ditch the Test of Stone. You're better off with Test of the Emerald
Champion - the loser dies, you get nearly as much honor, and you gain a
province (even if they refuse). Not a bad bargain for the cost of losing
Why not both?

| Ditch these - how many people with 4+ chi can you challenge? Most of the
time this will sit in your hand.
Yoshi only has 2 chi, and knows the art as well as any samurai.

| The combo with Corrupted Jade Sliver is questionable. At least FtE has a
good focus value.
Yeah, personally, I think it's pretty crappy. These spots could go for
Shiryo no Togashi and Mirumoto House Guard, not to mention Gift of the

| These can come out. Replace them with high-focus cards that do
something. If you need more honor, try the Mirumoto Wakizashi. It's a
weapon, which you need more of, and you can send people home if you block
with a lot of defenders.
Agreed that Moment Before can go, but Focus should stay. It buys Daini for
full off a MC, and wins Iaijutu Art without a Yoshi.
