Thanks *grin*. It really depends on the deck. My current tournament
deck runs 3 Merchant Caravans, 3 Corrupt Gold Mines, 3 Empty
Crevasses, 3 Gold Mines, 2 Large Farms, 1 Charter of the Dragon. It's
REALLY fast and does quite well. I am REALLY big into the META game.
I look at what people have been playing and adjust my deck week to
week accordingly. If people start to run Bandit Attacks/Plague of
Locust then I'll change the gold scheme (I run 2 Bandit Attacks).
You just have to base your deck around your gold scheme. You want your
gold to flow. For example, in the gold scheme I listed above ever gold
holding can buy anyother gold holding (except for the charter), meaning
after turn 1, my SH can be used to buy people or more important things
(can you say Otomo Sensei?). Using 4,5,6 gold personalities, the deck
flies. The only thing lacking is quick force, which Tattoos take care
of. Kobai, Dragonfly Tattoo, Mountain Tattoo, Beserkers = Turn 2 province.
And speaking of the meta game. When GenCon comes around and the Kotei's that
are here. I think that Kyuden Hitomi is the way to go. 70% of the time, even
if you run Iron Mountain you will be going 2nd anyway. And the meta that you
can run will be a lot more helpful.
Just my 2 Koku.
