Pre-update I loved the Shikami. He was my star player. He's a fantastic Rambo piece that's worth 0 SWC letting you take even more long range weapons to support him with, he can push a button, shoot just as well as any light infantry, and CC like an animal. A boss in suppressive and an all around hard to hit target. He was my go to, after a couple games of practice with him I included him in nearly every list I wrote unless I was playing Domaru Haramaki link or an O-yoroi or something like that. That being said, since the update, I find myself never writing him into lists. I'm not sure if it's because I am eager to play with all the new toys or because of all the order efficiency with every link team under the sun a one man Rambo piece is now a little weaker relatively. His button pushing asset is now mitigated by Domaru - who you're almost always taking in some type of link. Even his CC ability is over taken by the Domaru getting Dual wield. He's outgunned by the Yokai in the 0 SWC department, and his board control ability has also diminished due to the introduction of the Ryuken. Now I'm not saying the Shikami is bad now. in no way shape or form is that what this post is about. But the introduction of various harris options makes it so hard for me to justify taking him. What are your thoughts? is the Shikami still making it into your lists? has his role changed for you? are you incentivized on taking that sweet sweet 0 SWC duo now?
