Ivory Edition Decklists #2

Luckily for the advancement of the metagame, there have been quite a few folks posting decklists from their Week 1 tournaments. The links below will take you to those of them that I happen to find – just the decklist is here, but you should click through to find out the player’s thoughts on the deck and how to play it. You may notice a distinct lack of first and second place decklists in this post. That’s because AEG is (finally!) posting some decklists, and in particular are posting the first and second place decklists for each Kotei over on their forums. I may do decklist posts collecting those as well, just so I’ve got them stored somewhere that I know they’ll always be around, but for now I’ll focus on linking to information that isn’t as easy to find unless you visit all of the various L5R clan forums.
