One thing I've been noticing lately: Stand and Yogo Towers OWN most
defensive honor decks. To this end, I've been considering experimenting
with Farmlands and Ashigaru Archers/Spearmen. Use PKill to take out the
largest units, and Ashigaru to protect your own largest units so you can
soak up a Stand...I'll let everyone know should it prove effective.
