Modern Scorpion Dishonor

Postby Shosuro Kaite » Sun May 03, 2015 7:57 am

Greetings all, first post so sorry if I sound a bit formal. I recently discovered my love of L5R in Modern format with my favorite clan, the Scorpion Clan. I was hoping to get some critiques on it and hopefully improve it. I find the Limited/Open Honor Loss is a lot stronger than the Battle, and was hoping to improve upon that. Unfortunate Incident may cause 5 Honor Loss each use, but I have 3 out of 50 and I would like to keep up the consistent Honor Loss. I'm finding room for Personalities extremely tight, as I have 25 currently.

Stronghold:
Midday Shadow Court
-Reason: I love how I can lock my opponent out of the Imperial Favor. The Tireless Open to cause Honor Loss is very good in my opinion. Not to mention if I get Nitoshi Experienced 2 on board, I can use it twice.

Dynasty: 50
-Personalities
3x Bayushi Jutsushi
1x Bayushi Jutsushi Experienced
1x Bayushi Kachiko Experienced CoM
3x Bayushi Komiya
1x Bayushi Nitoshi, the Poison Mask Experienced 2
1x Bayushi Paneki Experienced 4
1x Bayushi Rentatsu
2x Bayushi Shibata (Would like to try and find a Personality to swap out for my 3rd copy, that trait to get +1 Province Strength is so good.)
1x Shosuro Jimen Experienced 2
3x Shosuro Kameyoi
3x Shosuro Uyeda
3x Soshi Komiko
1x Soshi Yoshihara
1x Yogo Kazunori
-Holdings
1x Counting House
3x Den of Iniquity
3x Geisha House
3x Indomitable Home (Absent Battle +2 Province Strength per Holding is just so great to me.)
3x Prosperous Village (I foresee the 6 base Gold Cost being a problem, any opinions on this particular Holding?)
3x Small-Time Bully
1x Stolen Merchandise
1x Temple of Tengen
1x The Merchants' District
1x Traveling Peddler
-Events/Celestials
1x Ignoble Demise
1x In Time of War
1x On
1x Suspicions
1x Bayushi's Guidance Experienced

Fate: 50
-Strategies
1x A Game of Dice
3x Accidental Confession
1x Destructive Priorities
2x Dirty Politics
3x Favors
3x Game of Sincerity
3x Inexplicable Challenge
3x Pull the String
3x Remember Your Ancestors
3x Request Authorization
3x Shame Never Dies
3x The Law's Strength
3x The Power of a Word
3x The Scorpion's Strength
3x Unfortunate Incident
3x Veiled Menace
-Attachments
1x Koutetsu Shinri
3x Record of Failure
3x Writ of Reprimand

That's what I'm working with. Things like Bayushi Komiya and Yogo Kazunori are currently on order from PlayCCG and I have 2-day Shipping on them. I'm proxying them for now so I have place-holders. Please let me know what you think as well as any improvements you may have. Thank you for your time!

While I think there's a Modern deck to be had for Scorpion Dishonor, it bears noting that Modern is a highlander format; only 1 copy of each card may be included.

It is indeed a highlander format. But I must say I have seen some pretty amazing dishonor builds for Modern. I believe you have the right idea in what you're going for with this list. Tighten it up and I believe you got something here.

My apologies, was on mobile earlier so didn't have the best of grammar.
Alright. I can easily edit for a highlander format. We're talking locally of just a Modern Constructed, like a super-extended Standard. I'm curious to see who breaks the game first. We may get creative though. We'll see.
Thank you for your guys' points. I will remove this post as it is not Modern Legal if requested.

You don't need to take the post down, just edit your deck when you get something.

Also... good luck trying to break it.

The allure of the officially sanctioned, flavorful Highlander Modern has hit me at last. I'm going to try it out. I have a new post up. Thank you for your help on this one guys!
