I will edit later for more details. Just a quick update. Round 6 is underway. Me and Greg P (Yasuki) got matched together at 4-1. A draw gets us both into top 8. Crab truce assures 2 Crab in top 8.

Ofc. And if the tutor kiho from Evil Portents had been legal there would have been 3 of those too!

Yes. Vs military decks the goal is to drop all 3 zazen and all 3 stones on the same guy in one turn. Gets you 30+ rock tokens and a repeatable fear 9. It gets more force than just about any deck I've seen because it does it pretty consistently. And with all the fears you can throw about 35-40 force is really hard to match. It is susceptible to a few key cards obviously, but if you don't run into them or your opponent doesn't have enough of them in their hand or they misjudge how much redirect/cancel you have. ;).

At the very least its fun to watch your opponents face when you put 36 rock tokens on Kuni Renyu.

Vs non military mu's you really just play everything by ear. You don't need more than one stones and one zazen per person vs honor and dishonor. And vs enlightenment you just cancel/redirect the right cards and they are usually forced to concede.
