Crab/Lion Athens Tournament winner!

Title says it all! The deck took first place in Athens in a field of 90 people!

And no, the deck is not mine, but it was brought up on the ponies FB page, and this page talks about each top of clan’s decks there.

Thoughts?

Reaction: At the start of each of your opponent's turns, kick him in the nuts if he is a Crane Clan or Spider Clan player.
Limited: Drink shots of liquor with your opponent, if he drinks less than you or doesn't drink: Target and destroy one of your opponent's provinces.

Looks like a solid aggro deck. A few quick notes;
4 Holdings - many decks lists include 6.
0 Eager Scout
0 Vengeful Berserker - Aggro decks seem to favor this, however I can see that the number of high costs characters could result in a flood.


I look forward to play testing.

I think this was an example of the pilot being greater than the deck. I don't think that deck makes it out of day 1 at world's.

The tournament was a 'learn to play l5r' and celebrate the relaunch. 70% of the field hadn't played a game of new L5r up to the first round of the tournament. The deck is an OK-ish aggressive deck with some odd choices (no greater glory, Oathkeeper) that managed to avoid all Dragons and end up top 4-1 from SoS (too much dropping in the tournament).

@HidaHayabusa where did you get that information?

... This explains a lot though. Wandering Ronin hasn't made a deck in any thing except in the one Core Lion vs Crane.
