The fifth (and final) Emperor Edition preview for today is Blade of Perfection, a relic of past misguided Kensai design. Kensai have historically been awful without Weapons – so this Weapon can come back into play. And historically a lot of Kensai actions have required bowing a Weapon – so this Weapon straightens itself. So you end up with a Weapon that, on its own, doesn’t do much, but that helps fill in the holes in your other overly-restrictive cards. When you have to play cards that are sub-par in a vacuum just to make your other cards decent instead of bad, it’s a recipe for deck disaster. I hope Kensai in EE never have to use Blade of Perfection.
Was that a bit harsh on poor little Blade of Perfection? Maybe so. Still true though.
