Re: The Book of Ebon Armor

I realize this synergy list is tedious to keep up with, but Morgan's Riflemen, Millerson, Wastewalker Gage, Ranjit Singh, and Louis "Mad Dog" Malone can be added to the Animated Materiel list if anyone is bored!

Re: The Book of Ebon Armor

Realized I never wrote up anything on the Ebon after using them to success in OHS Season 43.

The Ebon have great second order synergy with Tomoe Gozen, to the point that imo, Tomoe/Ebon builds are almost in a separate class to normal Ebon builds. Obviously, the Ebon are better with unique human squads more than human heroes, because squads offer more chance for the Ebon to return from the dead. But, those unique squads typically start to get lower offensive output once their members start to die and the Ebon come back. You have eternal Ebon, but the rest of your army is falling apart. Tomoe flips that for unique Samurai squads. With her Life Debt, she makes a Samurai turn with one Samurai dead just as effective as a full activation Samurai turn. And that's great, because it means you still have a fully effective unique squad, and you have some Ebon back. It takes quite a few Samurai and Ebon kills against an Ebon + Tomoe + Samurai army to push the build under activations, compared to the average all unique army.

The key to using the Ebon well in this build, and pretty much any Ebon build, is staggering them. Sending out all four Ebon as a strike force may be tempting, but if you ever lose all four Ebon all at once, they become pretty much a dead card, even if you have a lot of humans left. Your opponent can repeatedly kill the first Ebon that respawns and you're unlikely to ever make them a threat again. Being more conservative, sending out two Ebon for a couple attacks of 4, while simultaneously developing up the other two for later positioning, is really good. You know that the frontline Ebon are going to die, but you also know you'll be getting them back later, and they'll have companions waiting for them.

When I did this build, I went Kozuke and Izumi as my Samurai squads. I also had Kaemon, who was crucial as a ping, and has great synergy with Tomoe too. I think Kozuke and Izumi are best pairs for Tomoe and Ebon, due to price point and the roles they fill. Izumi are a screen, Kozuke are big hitters for when your opponent engages, Ebon are bread and butter offense. You can definitely try Tagawa, but I feel like due to the nature of Bloodlust, they demand lots of sequential order markers in a way that the Ebon don't really want to give. You want to spread your order markers around a lot in this sort of build.

Unfortunately, this build is extremely tilted to be strong against melee and not great against range, due to the natural tilt of the Samurai. The Ebon do have Defensive Positioning, but that power is pretty situational. I would like to experiment with Skahen + Otonashi instead of Kaemon, to get a different direction and some anti-range.
