> 3 SHutt
Have you found these to work??
I tested them but found that at best they produced 3 gold (with a small farm) at worst nothing. I see Jade works as a much better investment.
> 2. B?? Temple? ( nor familiar with this card off top of head )
>WIll assume Sancfified.
Temple of Bishamon?
You must have at least 5 Family Honor to bring the Temple of Bishamon into play. Limited: Bow the Temple of Bishamon to gain 1 Honor. Battle: Bow the Temple of Bishamon to bow a card with the Shadowlands trait attacking one of your Provinces. You may take this action during a battle in which you have no units.
If this is so im not convinced. Its a very limited meta card and really expensive at 5 gold.

Personally I'd go for both Hiruma AND Jade works to maximise the gold you can make first turn. Playing both gives a much better chance of having 7 gold turn two.

>or Juppan or Shaitung.. ( nothing more then a ajde works. )
Vedau is a samurai so its 4 gold for him as well. Even if it wasnt a 4 gold holding which produced 3 gold would be lovely. Comes of the box and makes most of our other holdings.

Familiar Surroundings, Counterattack, Suspended Terrain, Counter attack and Brash Hero for your consideration.
Familiar surroundings lets the defender pick the other of battles, due to the new reaction rules (player left of active reacts first) if the big battle is resolved last then you get to counterattack before he gets to rally. Suspended terrain makes sure he cant rally. Brash Hero forces an attack which works well with all the above if he sends everyone or just counterattack as a cheap rally. Brash Hero can target quite a lot in gold as nearly all clans have a stable 2 chi samurai.
> Then the cards I'm not sure :
> 3 charge
> 3 arrow from the wood
> 3 test of courage
> 3 avoid fate
> 3 investigation
*snip good stand advice*

3 gold cost
Reaction: When an Assassin action, Ninja action, or Kolat action targets you, your Stronghold, or any of your cards or tokens, negate all of the action's effects except Honor losses to the player taking the action and make the player lose 5 Honor.
(gotta love www.l5rsearch.com)
The problem with this card is you have to leave 3 gold unbowed, if you are really having kolat troubles your better of playing with fortresses of the dragonfly.
