Mighty Model Spotlight – Monk of High River

With Yokai, Thunder Brothers and Charm Warders, the five-stone slot is hyper-competitive in Ten Thunders. The Monk of High River has stiff competition, but with a solid (0) action, some great model/master synergies and a couple of key abilities, the monk has plenty of play.
