Evolution Ability Enhance [The enemy is here!]: AOE base chance 25% Confuse with 5 layers of Accused on the target.  Confused Shikigamis would attack the Accused unit.  Accused unit is increased damage taken from normal attack by 20%.  Upon Evolving, Accused unit counters if the attacker has higher HP and loses 1 layer of Accused.

Soul

Example: Soul Edge/Fortune Cat x4 + Effect HIT x2
Position 2/4/6: SPD/Effect HIT/HP

There are two main stream souls for Hoshiguma: Soul Edge and Fortune Cat

Soul Edge is the perfect fit for Hoshiguma.   His passive synergizes with this soul perfectly.  Using Soul Edge would give Hoshiguma more opportunity to confuse enemies.

Fortune Cat is another popular choice.  While Soul Edge is the number one choice, Hoshiguma can use Fortune Cat if there is another Soul Edge already in the team.  Hoshiguma is a fast Shikigami so Fortune Cat is an excellent choice for orbs.

Speed is an important stat for control units.  This is no exception for Hoshiguma so SPD at slot 2 is given.  The rest of stat is a balance of SPD and Effect HIT.  Personally I think SPD takes the priority since being able to use controlling skills first would be a huge advantage.

Sample Team

Hakuzosu, Kamaitachi, Hoshiguma Doji, Kujira, Shiranui, with Kagura

When to use Hoshiguma largely depend on what team we are up against.  He works well against the teams with strong attackers but not so much if the opponent has potent dispellers.  I would save Hoshiguma for fourth or fifth pick to minimize the chance of opponent picking the likes of Juzu.  Another point to note is to make sure there is enough orb supply especially when the team has other allies that are heavy orb users.  Other than that, there is not much specific team builds for Hoshiguma.  He’s one of the meta control Shikigami so he can be used in many situations.

Shikigami Comparison

Onmyoji Mobile Game - Shikigami YumekuiYumekui – There is not much similarity between Yumekui and Hoshiguma other than the fact that they are both used for control and that they are/were the meta of their time.  Before SP Shuten was released, Yumekui was pretty much the default control for most teams.  The reason is his high inate base chance to sleep.  Hoshiguma has lower base chance but still high enough to take over the new meta.  Plus he’s not as affected by SP Shuten.  Hoshiguma can also inflict control outside his turn, which Yumekui cannot.  Yumekui is still very viable once SP Shuten is banned so if you see that banning, be prepared to face Yumekui.

Acquisition

Summon, Demon Parade

Wanted Quest

Sample Gameplay

Verdict

The fun factor for this guy is through the roof lol.  Not only that, he’s also very useful since he can turn enemies against themselves.

I would suggest maxing his skills since all three contribute to his success in confusing opponents.   This also means either you are very lucking with summon or it’s gonna cost alot of Black Darumas.
As a side note, I feed him the Black Darumas when he first came out.  While some may think this is a waste on SR but at the same time, I get to use his full skills earlier lol.

Hoshiguma is PvP only so if you are only doing PvE, you can skip him.  However, if you are doing PvP, even casually, he’s the most entertaining Shikigami in the game.  I strongly advise building him.
With a little getting used to Hoshiguma, he’ll bring alot of joy to Duel (and frustration at times lol).
