The Kozuke's are a good choice, but if you want a cheaper counter, pick the Izumi. You probably won't kill on offense, but on defense you'll hurt them. With counterstrike, you can take advantage of the whiff or 1(2) dice roll.
*This came from the 'Tip's and Tricks' section on the Heroscape site about the Izumi Samurai because it said "finally a counter to the Minions of Utgar"
