Ivory Edition Decklists #3 (Mostly Dragon Edition)

OK, I’m still working on that Thunderscape review (from that Shawn Carman guy you L5R players may have heard of), which I thought I was going to get done this week (totally not going to happen – that work travel schedule got changed up … also, I may have played some Mass Effect … that’s right, the original Mass Effect, I am that far behind on video games, and got the Mass Effect Trilogy for Christmas 2013 … could I fit any more asides into this parenthetical?), but it seemed like I should make sure to actually get some additional post up this week, and I do believe there are some L5R decks laying around somewhere to link to.

As always, make sure to click through the links to see what the players comments on playing the deck are. That’s much more valuable than just reading a decklist. Also, like last time, skipping first and second place decks for now because AEG is publishing them on their forums.
