Where do I go from here?

I picked up the starter pack plus Satsuki and Kaihime, but I feel as if I've created a bit of a muddled force without a proper focus as a result.

 

For 50 rice, I was thinking of this list to get a good few stack of Blood of Orochi going and a more sturdy team focused on melee with a side of poison:

Kaihime (9)

Masunagi (9)

Naoko (8)

Saburo (7)

Satsuki (7)

Temple Bushi (5)

Temple Bushi (5)

Anybody have any recommendations? I'm relatively new, so I have no idea how well this would do - what could/should I swap to have a focused list rather than my usual "bit of shisai, bit of melee" list?

I'd consider getting the Ito special card pack so you can use the Blessed theme. You'd have to drop Masunagi and the 2 Bushi, though. One Bushi could be replaced by a Temple Asp (same model, card from the same pack) for 1 rice more. Masunagi could be replaced by Kenzo for 1 rice more. Then, you'd have 3 rice for special cards (Hotei's Coin on Kaihime? Lots of options here.), or a Shimogama Vyer to be an annoyance to your opponent.

  • Kaihime (9)
  • Kenzo (10)
  • Naoko (8)
  • Saburo (7)
  • Satsuki (7)
  • Temple Asp (6)
  • Shimogama Viper (3)

Alternatively, Kyou could come in and give Satsuki a buff whilst doing good work on the melee front. No substitute for the murder Kenzo and Masunagi can dish out, but this is OK.

  • Kaihime (9)
  • Kyou (8)
  • Naoko (8)
  • Saburo (7)
  • Satsuki (7)
  • Temple Asp (6)
  • Shimogama Viper (3)
  • 2 rice for special cards

Kyou could replace Naoko, instead.

  • Kaihime (9)
  • Kenzo (10)
  • Kyou (8)
  • Saburo (7)
  • Satsuki (7)
  • Temple Asp (6)
  • Shimogama Viper (3)

  • Kaihime (9)
  • Kenzo (10)
  • Naoko (8)
  • Saburo (7)
  • Satsuki (7)
  • Temple Asp (6)
  • Shimogama Viper (3)

Thanks I'll have a look at those. The other thing I was thinking about was a Jade Mamba Guard for the bodyguard benefit, plus trying to work out the point of Akimoto but they don't show up in those suggestions.

 

If I wanted to run Itsunagi instead of Kenzo or Masunagi for some variety, would the Mamba be helpful in keeping him alive?

Jade Mamba is a solid profile. Akimoto is not. There's an alternate profile card for Akimoto in the special card pack which is more usable.

Itsunagi's pretty good at keeping himself alive, tbh, but the JMG would allow you to avoid unfavourable matchups and tarpits.
