Embers of War Decklists #1

Kotei season is over, and most lists that will be published have been, so hopefully this will serve as a complete-as-we-can-get look at Embers of War decklists prior to the legality of the Kotei pack cards. Decks include Spider “Ninja” x3, Unicorn Death Priests x3, Phoenix Honor, Crane Aerie x2, Unicorn Weapons, Mantis Pokemon x2, Crab “Scouts,” actual Crab Scouts, Dragon WED Kitsuki x2, TFT Oni, Crane KOXP Honor, Dragon Kensai Dueling, Lion Ancestors x3, Lion Nonhuman Swarm, Lion Paragon Switch, Mantis KL x4, Scorpion Paragons, Scorpion Dishonor, Scorpion Dishonor out of a different box, Spider Paragon Blitz, and Unicorn Followers.

That’s 33 decks! Note to self: don’t wait to do one big post next time.

Q: Why aren’t there pretty pictures to go with these decklists?
A: Because time is finite. Sorry.

6 thoughts on “Embers of War Decklists #1

  1. It’s really good to see three Death Priests decks and two Kyuden Kitsune decks among these lists. I’ve felt since the beginning of this season that Temple of Death was underplayed.

  2. [sarcasm] I was promised links to every card via L5R Search Chris, I’m disappointed in this large amount of free work you’ve done. [/sarcasm]

  3. The Shiro Chugo deck from the Philippines isn’t a Paragon deck, it’s a dishonor deck that happens to be playing out of Shiro Chugo.

  4. Man, my top 4 deck from Grove City wasn’t even worth considering to look at the environment. I guess you consider me an outlier.

    1. The only judgment I make about including a deck on the list or not is if a top-of-clan deck didn’t make the cut. If a deck made the cut and isn’t on this list, it’s because I missed it when digging through all the various sites. If you could provide me with a link, then I’ll include it in the next decklist post.
