FL Decklists: Crab, Crane and Unaligned

Forgotten Temple’s dominance may be a thing of the past, and you may have picked up Second City a month ago at GenCon, but there’s still a month left to play in the Forgotten Legacy environment, so it’s time again to collect some high-performing decks from around the web – tweak them or test against them, but don’t ignore them.

Don’t forget to click through the links to see what the player’s who ran the deck have to say about them (including what they would remove or add in).

Below are a couple of high-placing Crab Scout decks from GenCon, as well as Crane Embassy Honor. I’ve also include, for reference, some Broken Oni lists, although they’ve now been nerfed out of existence.
