Chizuken looks objectively great.
I was going to ask if they just gave mumoshi random keywords, but apparently air ninja shugenja have been a thing before.
It looks like they're doing more terrains with immediate effects.
Poisoned shuriken looks interesting. By interesting I mean annoying.
A 6g 4/3 kensai?

Coronation festival looks OK. Onyx ascendance is a thing I guess.
For the curious, other barracks holdings in 20F besides mess hall (including other ThA holdings): forward encampment, garrison hub, heisha

I like coronation festival a lot. Might be good in kaiu.

AEG was determined to prove people wrong and make bitter lies good. And they have. I don't mind at all. It's the only non crab deck I currently play and another conqueror is a much welcome addition to my scorpion ninjazerkers. Today we die, blade of toshigoku, ambushing, masked badassness of doom.

It's annoying that coronation festival has a hard counter in absolution, which will leave CF in your province to be kharmic'd away, but it's plenty useful. There's some weirdness to be had with how the card actually works - you resolve CF to put it into play, then you get the open ability to create a delayed effect which later lets you decide a province should be refilled face up. So for example it works on your or your opponent's turn with cards that open (I think just ivory courtroom at the moment) or battle recruit, or if they trigger from provinces...

Events are discarded after they resolve, so if they play Absolution it will be discarded. Otherwise you could just resolve it the following turn, which would make The New Order a lot scarier.

Yeah, that cf will be toasted-My bad. I only realized it after i posted.

I guess the scorpion box will be even more obnoxious by naming absolution?

Unlikely, since non-Honour decks would rarely waste a slot on Absolution, and Honour decks will rarely trigger the Event. If you are doing absolutely nothing else that turn you'd do it just to be safe, but if you can't think of something better to name then the box is doing nothing either way.
