Inspired by a forum post I saw a few days ago, I decided to take the Provoke Songhai idea one step further:
While Wood-Wen is perfectly well, Lady Locke with our minions with give us even more Provoke per deck. It’s a simple backstab deck through and through, but with Provokes, your opponent can’t exactly move out of your choke. (Fun Fact: Shimewaza is the name of the choke in Judo. The more you know.)
Credits to @seraphicreaper for the original idea.
The way you play should be pretty simple, just don’t provoke until your dudes are in a backstab position. Then, you Wood-Wen and buff as you please. Alternatively, use Lady Locke to put your minions IN the backstab position, so even if they attack they take the bonus backstab damge.
BONUS FINISHER: Hamon + Wood-Wen. Could be fun.
