Cosmetic Snowfall, Shirayuki
Now here's why a Murakumo G-Zone is actually decently strong. It needs Shirayuki as the heart to gain ALL the benefits, but either way, when placed on VG circle, call a copy of your heart from the deck. If the heart is Shirayuki, it goes to the hand at the cost of discarding 1 card. Otherwise, it goes back to the deck, like almost every other clone skill does.
A good way to fall back on your fail-con in Yasuie-based Murakumo, and grabbing an extra attacker that will then Swiss-Army as a defender is not unwelcome. However, it's not really a 4-of card given Yasuie is still the priority, and if you can play him, you'd rather Stride into Kagamijishi first instead, since without original Shirayuki it's just an extra attacker for a turn.
She's an option that doesn't encroach too badly though. She's better than that Train thing, at any rate.

Cosmetic Snowfall, Shirayuki
Didn't we review this one?  No?  Huh, feels like we did.
Anyway, this is a Stride that needs Shirayuki as the heart to get the most out of.  When placed on V, choose one of your hearts and call a copy of it to the field, at the end of the turn, put it to the bottom of the deck.  If you have a heart with "Shirayuki" in the name, you add the card to your hand instead and discard one card.
Just a FYI, there's an errata on this card, but it was even on the Japanese card, so it's not the translator's fault for once.
But, really, Bushi?  This feels like a half-assed attempt at making Shirayuki playable in the modern game.  You give Brawlers and Overlord awesome Strides that can do some really awesome/nasty things, but when it comes to Shirayuki, nope, you need to "balance" it somehow because god forbid, Murakumo get something really good, right?
Urgh, it's easy to see why Murakumo players get so frustrated about anything new and complain to the point of annoyance about new Murakumo stuff.
