  1. I get it. You're better than me. I won't post anymore or waste my time trying to play a Master that isn't worth it.
  2. I, again, never claimed to know anything about Jack Daw. I said it looked like Youko would have a favorable matchup. Charm Warders shut down Demise. Lust penalizes card draws, Youko can easily lock down a Guilty as a target to use discard effects with their low willpower. It's going to be a balancing act. Malifaux 3ed is remarkably balanced. I think Jack and Youko are good in their own ways and the best part about Malifaux is you pick your list for each pool and each match. I also don't think that any particular Master or Keyword is dramatically underpowered compared to anyone else.
  3. I don't play Shenlong. And I never claimed to have played against Daw. I just am stating I think it would be a potent matchup because of the handsize reduction and the variety of tools that Qi and Gong can bring against him. I've never played against 3 ed Daw. He's not in my meta. I think we've gotten a bit off the original topic anyway. I'm certain you can create a new thread to continue affirming that Youko is not worth running. I find her fun and potent and believe with enough practice she can be useful in plenty of Pools.
  4. It's a lot of things. Because you can also utilize it to disengage or maneuver and enemy into a bad position or scoring position for yourself. My favorite is utilizing it with Hinamatsu and forcing an opponent to take a disengage which then triggers wicked. You can also use it on folks that aren't engaged to drop schemes in bad spots that may prevent scoring. Or pick up a scheme marker. Additionally pass tokens turn her models into near guaranteed damage so you're not only getting two pass tokens which she uses for accuracy but also the action on top of that. Seems like it would be ve
  5. Yeah, Jack Daw is a good Master, but he's in Outcasts and I tend to play TT so I don't play as him. I couldn't give an informed opinion on him.
  6. 1) It also works with other pass tokens that you get from other sources. Summoned enemy models, Blackmail, or her totem. Additionally, yes, preventing your opponent from scoring is one of the major points of the game, however, if your opponent is deliberately delaying their scoring until turn 4 or 5 they're just opening themselves up for you to stop them or potentially telegraphing their schemes to allow your hitters to snipe folks out. 2) Bill is a tech piece not a beater. Min 3 is solid, scheme removal is solid, his mobility is top notch because of his triggers and his Heroic Interventi
  7. Bunraku are great scheme runners in keyword. Risky just barely let's you scheme bonus scheme because of the base being an inch long. They're not as good as Hucksters for sheer mobility or Scheming but the lure makes them useful for repositioning your own models as well. Youko is a crazy Master to pick up because she asks a LOT of your game knowledge. There's a ton of knowing when to stack distracted or go for larger things. I'm glad you're giving her a shot. Condi removal is a huge pain for her. One Tanuki can do a lot to keep her safe. Kaeris is also just a bad matchup. As are shockwave
  8. Youko is weak overall with middling defense tech because she has to be. She fundamentally plays the game differently from other people. Pre nerf Tara shows that activation manipulation is key to scoring when you want how you want to and Leverage does that. Cody had insane plays late in turns because he could pick and choose where and when Tara and the Nothing Beast could activate. Same theory different execution. If your opponent tries to scheme late to counter it then instead Youko has a bonus action you can stone for to force two discards at random. Bill can remover scheme markers non linea
  9. Oh hello. Youko Hamasaki player here. Blackmail and We Own You are turbo obeys. It's short range because no matter what you do she still gets an advantage off the action. That's the point. She owns hand pressure. Most crews don't have huge abilities to draw cards. She also has action manipulation with pass tokens. Blackmail is not the best action in the game. But it can be. It's significantly easier to land than an Obey sans the short range, but her crew is full of lures and neg willpower auras. You can use a ton of good bonus actions and just use them to do shenanigans. It a
  10. It's McCabe. Just...just saying. It's McCabe. He's a monster. Fast. Fun. Good in almost any scenario. Not that I'm biased. But I'm biased. He's more fun just to pick up and play into any scenario.
  11. And she's interesting! I like the additional way to get Scrap, makes card draw a bit more reliable with the crew and can let you do it off Blown Apart from Sidir. I'm gonna have to give her a shot with my usual McCabe nonsense. Will definitely take her as a tech piece but kind of want to use her more reliably in certain matchups. Being able to counter-scheme and scheme makes her seem like a prospector almost from Outcasts on steroids.
  12. Hey! Unofficial McCabe Master here. Thanks to HomelessOne for linking my thread but...yes. I would state that McCabe loves the current GG and he's absolutely amazing. He can play any setup and Scenario. Definitely get the Hucksters and Desper. They're good for starting out. Samurai are prime too. Dawn Serpent and Shadow Emissary are also good. So. I'd suggest starting by learning activation order. Luna first. Get an Artifact and toss it with her bonus to whomever is going after and spread that fast around. Once McCabe gets going he can also throw them out alright, but
  13. It's over folks. It's over. We have been defeated. Only hope is to wait for the errata. It's probably for the best. With those tiny arms we couldn't hold up the sign anyway.
  14. Nope. There was the Explorer's split with Sonnia Witch Hunter minion. Spelleaters. I'm concerned about Ivan being as...potent as that with those summons though. It seems far from incidental. Shade Upgrade needs to be revealed or talked about.
  15. I assume it's coming with other wastrels in Explorers. I hope.
