Man that is a really cool and impressive bunch. After the unicorn previews, I was expecting another subdued set, but these spiders are on a different level. Evil Portents indeed.

*crosses fingers* Hopefully this is indicative of what the Crab previews will be like.

I just want a break from Shugenja. I'm all Kuni'd out. A quick search by Onyx shows we already have 6 Kuni for the next arc.
As much as I hate the engineers, I would like this set to have even more of them, to see if an honor runner will be viable by the end of it all. That and some Samurai with battle actions. Maybe 1 more Zerker.

So hoping for:

2 Military Samurai guys
2 Kaui honor guys
1 Yasuki dude
1 Zerker

I'd still like one Kuni. And storyline wise I think it makes sense they keep printing Kuni. Or another personality with the commander trait for fucks sake. I am also really hoping we get the Kaiu Sensei this set as well. Dishonor totally deserves something as well but I can't honestly say I give a single twit about dishonor. :)

I'm not sure if I'd prefer Without Your Weapon over Your True Nature. Right now I think Your True Nature is winning out because its open, but the chance to destroy two 3 gold attachments for free when going second is tempting.

My big hope for this set is that we get at least 2 decent Yasuki.

I'm pretty sure you still have to pay 3G to pop 2 3G attachments even if you are going second. But the Open nature (get it?) of YTN gives it utility against stuff like Official Sanction or Mark of Heavens Favor.

Ahh, yes. I misread that. Still unless they reprint YTN or come out with a lot more open kill I'll probably find room for WYW in Onyx.
