back in my day we didn't have fantsy markets and what not and we drew exactly one rakano artisan and liked it, or we drew more and kind of didnt like it.
bladecrafter is sick, I liked it in my fjs market that let me have a fire focused market that could get my stormhalt knife in a pinch, should *probably* have some runehammer but I was just playing this for gauntlet and it actually seemed quite effective.
I really like eloz choice as it can either sweep away nonsense like the carver deck but also kills dawnwalker *and* the new dawnwalker lite as well as being able to grant 3 armor to a weapon which is kind of nice.
the soldrain smithing is just good clean fun, its part rakano artisan, part smugglers stash
we have quite a lot of recursion, because I'm playing bladecrafters I dont really have room for the stranger that rebuys weapons but this should get you through gauntlets fairly easily.
sweepers are less important when you have cards like traveller and brel to just stack huge weapons.
brel is a card that sadly never saw enough play due to icaria generally being "better" in that slot, but when youve stacked up a daisho with the +4/+4 and warcry, well, thats gas.
