Embers of War Decklists #2

Another set of Embers of War decklists for you. Some newly posted, and some that make it look like I must have not looked hard enough when I was perusing the Kobune Port last time. Appearances by a couple Pokemon decks and a couple Kalani’s Landing decks, plus Dragon Kensai, Goju, and Phoenix Spell military.

    1. I actually prefer to play honor/dishonor. It just hasn’t been viable in a shade of green before. I’ll play lion again the next time they have dishonor.

  1. KL is stupid good even if it requires a strong player to pilot correctly. I hope they errata the stronghold before next season or things are going to get really bad with all the current and upcoming things that just feed off the stronghold like a vampire on a middle-aged woman.
