6 Honor req is horrible and the design team should feel shame for having put it on this card.
Not sure why they choose to not make it an invest cost unless you can rocket thunders back into play from the discard pile.

I don't like him because they made it a point to say that one on one he was the strongest thunder. But Hoturi straight up janks him 100% of the time. His melee doesn't even kill Hoturi :|

Melee 4 and Tactician are great, but 6HR and 14G render him too slow for the current arc. Such a shame, I really wanted to like him.

You could technically buy him turn 4 provided you got a guy with 3PH and he is jade, so jade works kind of helps. He feels like a beast stuck in a cage at a zoo lol.

Yeah, it's not impossible. There are a number of 3PH Crabs that actually see play (Gorobei for sure, Toranosuke?) and are relatively cheap. With Jade Works x3, Yakamo suddenly becomes EXTREMELY affordable.

14 gold is never going to be extremely affordable.

Agreed, especially in Economy Edition.

Nonetheless, Tsujiken Military may be able to bring him in on T3. The deck gets on average 21G on T3 i.e. 6G for 3PH guy, and 15G for Yakamo. So there is still hope. Need to test...
