Well, the turnout sucked because of the Toronto Kotei, but it was still a
pretty fun time. I was running an honor/duel deck (list below).The clan
4 Rounds of swiss then a 4-man final.
Brandon- Corrupt Crab Oni w/O-ushi sensei
Ugh, I hate O-ushi sensei. I also hate this deck since it's fast as hell. He
takes, and brings out a Crab Oni with a One Koku. Peasant revolt hits on my
turn, a repreive, but a short lived one. I didn't see any duels, and tests
were useless. Block supply lines and the favor held him off for a bit, but
not long enough. I get to 27 honor then get crunched. Blah, wonderful start.
Paul- Toturi's Army follower deck w/ Seppun sensei
He gets a crummy gold start, I get a good gold start going first. I start
cranking out people and killing off any annoyances. I fly up in honor and win
without him ever attacking.
Can't remember his name- Lion w/Akodo Sensei
This guy was a new player who was given a deck from a friend. He also had
Hantei sensei in his deck, and a sheet of paper telling him what to call
against certain people (like FtH against Kaede sensei). He didn't have
anything on Dragon...pity that is. ;) We go back and forth, I get a decent
start and get ahead in honor. He puts a clansword on a lonely ken'o and
attacks, I duel him with Mio (and yoshi helping of course). We get into a
dueling war, I win by 2 (yay toshimoko sensei!) and the game is pretty much
over from there. He makes one last attack with everyone at my last non-clan
heartland province. All my people defend. I give him 16 honor, but keep my
province. I honor out, clan heartland plus another province, and I win.
Ray (our T.O.) Unicorn Tactition stuff w/ Yodin sensei.
I get a great start. Hiruma Dojo/Inheritance/Sanctified Temple/Small Farm. He
gets an ok one with a Hiruma Dojo and a SF. I bring out Yoshi and more money.
I start cranking out honor and testing or dueling his Asami's away. I honor
out easily, and he takes only a single province.
Woohoo! Finals baby!
Finals round 1
The other lion player w/ Hantei sensei
He goes first, flips over an Imp. Gift. Oh joy, more honor that I need to
make up. He grabs some money. My turn, all people. Damn. The whole game I
get a SF for money. He gets much better. He steamrolls me. Dammit.
Playing for 3rd
Chris- Ninja Tactition deck w/ Kaede Sensei
He gets a pretty good start. Most of my actions get cancelled when I target
him. He runs me over relatively quickly. I get 4th. D'oh.
Overall placings were:
1st- Connor Alexander using Naga enlightenment
2nd- Lion Player (sorry, can't remember your name) from Finals Round 1
3rd- Chris Lagrone using ninja tactition
4th- Me using Dragon Dueling
