Emperor Edition Decklists #6

What, two weekdays in a row with no updates? It’s almost as if I spent a weekend off at a Kotei after having spent a whole mess of the prior two weeks pushing out four episodes of the podcast, and needed to spend some time with the family. It’s the most important ingredient of a succesful podcast – the tolerance of Mrs. Podcast. 🙂

Just be glad the first day back isn’t my much-anticipated review of Doomslayers: Into the Labyrinth. 😉

I mean, you’re going to get that eventually, as part of my “old White Wolf books no one cares about” review series.  Just not today.

The Emperor Edition environment nears its close, but there’s still more gems to be found, including David Winner grabbing the Crane’s first Kotei of the season (and first tournament of the environment).  So let’s start off with that one (and then continue with something for everyone who isn’t Phoenix):
