Murakumo's Stride vessel. As his GB2 skill, which is normal for units like this, once per turn, when a clone vanishes back to the deck, you then summon it back, and it gets to stay there PERMANENTLY. On Stride, CB1, choose a rear-guard, clone it twice.
 
So this is basically the most reliable way to play Homura Raider outside of Lake Diver. Now this is a better option over Magatsu Storm; not only does he grant more freedom in deck choice in favour of stuff that actually feeds your gambits, he can also let you keep your advantage once you've Stridden enough times. Granted it's not exactly Neo Nectar or similar and probably won't be ever, but it's nice to have.
 
Downsides? Obviously copy management for everything's a bit of a pain, considering you have to have one unit on the field and only one removed from the deck to clone optimally and with a sufficient amount of board-wipe is easy to disrupt, but come on. I wasn't expecting it to break the game or anything.
 
He's okay and probably the best option Murakumo have. Which isn't saying a lot, mind.
 
2.5/5

So, we have the Break Stride of the Murakumo clan.  And what's the Break-stride ability here?  When you Stride, CB1, choose a Rear guard and call up to two copies of it from the deck.  Then at the end of the turn, put them at the bottom of the deck.
 
That, that's not TOO bad, now three units with the same name?  Why does that seem familiar to me?  I could have sworn that there was a...
 
Oh right!  Homura Raider!  Yasuie grabs 2 copies of a unit from the deck and calls them to R, and then Homura Raider uses them to restand?
 
Okay, so it costs three counter blasts to do that, but so what?!  Three counterblasts to make Murakumo go from the worst clan in the game to semi-decent?  That seems good to me.
 
Murakumos need a LOT more work and a real advantage engine before they can move up past this, but at least it's a start and...
 
Oh, right, the GB2 skill, almost forgot about that one!  Mostly because the Break Stride ability is pretty good on its own.
 
If a unit is placed on the bottom of the deck by another skill, go grab a copy of the card that just disappeared and call it to rear guard.
 
Won't work with Homura Raider, but dang!  That's EXACTLY what I was talking about when I said that Murakumo decks need a solid advantage engine and a way to make use out of their temporary cloning abilities.
 
Overall, it won't make Murakumo suddenly compete with the top five decks, but at least Yasuie pushes Murakumo towards the middle of the pack instead of dead last.
 
Okay, after the horror that was yesterday's card, I'm officially impressed with Bushiroad here.
 
Also, tomorrow's card has a history with today's card.
