Asakichi continues the 108 themes of extra movement and easy influence. With Cooke and the outfit, you can move two dudes around the table at a moments notice.
You have to discard a card for her effect, which is no problem if you have extra Kung Fu techniques in your hand that you'll be able to get back out of the discard later. She also helps thin your hand so you can draw more cards at the end of the turn. If Bai Yang Chen ever gets stuck at a location when you want him at your opponent's home, move Cooke over and discard a card to get him back where he needs to be.
She only costs 3 with zero upkeep. She can make a great starter with that low cost or she can be mixed into a Kung Fu deck that is relying on low pulls and taking advantage of Zhu's Ferocity and Raking Dragons thanks to her low value of 3.
Cooke's Nightcap is the deed for those that want a jumpstart to their economy. It provides three income for an easy 2 ghost rock investment. It's worth no control points to you, however and it's worth two control if your opponent takes it from you. If you plan on dropping this deed, you better make sure you can defend it. As always, Clementine Lepp is a great way to defend your Saloons.
You can also use the nightcap as bait. If you're running a deck that doesn't start fights easily, feel free to drop the Nightcap in hopes that your opponent will try to take it. When they do, move in and start a fight. Any opponent will find it hard to resist shutting down 3 income and taking 2 control from you.
If you thought there were going to be new Kings in the vein of Chow and Chief Seven Eagles, you would be right. These Kings all have the advantage of a discount based on the thing your faction is already good at. You won't necessarily need to build a strong economy to get them into play; you'll just need to do what your faction already does best.
Sloane is reduced by the number of wanted dudes you control and she unboots each of those wanted dudes when she enters play. She then gets a bounty for each of those dudes. With the tendency for Desolation Row to want to run jobs, she will help you run more than one in the same turn and set her up with a stash of bounty worth a control point.
Since she has another version, you could bring this one into play, receive all her benefits, and then swap the old Sloane into play for long-lasting benefits.
