Someone just seen Goro?

The answer is certainly not, the game would break!

I may be contemplating a "Betas" theme though ;)

There seems to be no place for the onisho. You've got the alpha's theme and the bake's theme so they can't go in that. As for balanced, in my opinion you take 1 oni and the rest bakes to make good use of the bakemono horde card.

I can't see where I would use them. I love the models and their stats just can't seem to fit them in anywhere.....

Onisho are great to add some hitting power to a mixed list. I generally find you have enough bakemono after  18-22 rice (drum, tra peng, Xi-Han) so plenty of points left to play with.

 

My 50 rice for goro;

Yusha

Goro

Xi-han 

Tra peng 

Drum

cave bat

Bakemono spearman 

Decent amount of punch and 5-7 ki in the pool for darkness or summon.

You see I prefer more Ki on the horde card. Darkness and summon for both early turns is more important than the hitting power he brings Imo. Rhinso is just as good especially when you numbers advantage.

The tourneys' down south are 4 games of 42rice, so I am yet to play a 50 rice game as I am always play testing at 42 rice.

I'm sure you are up there as your close to UKexpo. I was going to come this year but a good friend is getting married that weekend so I'm having to suffer instead.....

Next year, 2018 both I and da gobbo will be gracing you with our presence
