You're right. Domo. I had not quite seen it that way. Actually, through
cards like Naseru's Strength, Naseru could do both (go get Art, Challenge,

Very likely. Could you imagine trying to assign a Kabuki Theatre Troupe to
defend? Actually, that sounds like some sort of wacky new card.
Battle: Destroy a holding you control to create a unit with force and chi
equal to half its gold cost. This unit is immediately assigned to this
battle. This unit is not considered to be moving. This action may be taken
in a battle in which you have no units.
Gold Cost: 0 Focus Value: 4

True, but isn't that how great decks are created. Start with the basics,
then add in some power cards, and then meta against decks you really don't
want to lose to?

Well, maybe not every clan, but those that we would be challenged by who we
expect to show up in droves at Gencon ; )
