Ambush Demon Stealth Rogue, Yasuie Tenma
If At First You Don't Succeed: the card. Yasuie Tenma's skill is GB2, is once per turn, requires a G Persona Blast, and then he gains a Shadowstitch skill: any time one of your rear-guards fails to hit the vanguard, you Counterblast 1 to call another unit with the same name as that unit (and yes, you can even call it over the unit that finished attacking).
Just one of the many reasons to go Critical-wild with Murakumo: can't kill them with Late Game skills if you won't send them into Late Game in the first place.
Works pretty well with Yashabayashi (and they're supposed to be used in the same deck anyway, so of course synergy) for essentially saving yourself Counterblast to keep the multi-attack hate train going. This is THE go-to finisher of choice as long as you go light on Counterblasting or have a damn good Countercharge engine going on 5 damage. The problem lies in his annoyingly specific timing, so it sometimes isn't worth wasting a G Guardian just to rush to him unless the opponent is basically going to die (you got the opponent to 4 damage on your Grade 3 turn ride and he stayed that way) but overall all the extra attacks can whittle him down.
Has basically little merit outside of dedicated Yasuie builds but since people ought to be grateful they have a useable Murakumo deck at all, I won't complain. This is probably the best finisher next to Homura Raider.

[Ambush Demon Stealth Rouge, Yasuie Tenma]

For being a clan about stealth and hit-and-run tactics, Yasuie Tenma is looking like a Spike Bro, emulating that clan's Hail Mary-ish style of smashing in face till you can't no more, or the opponent loses.

Yasuie Tenma is a "my opponent is at 3 to 5 damage" kind of stride, because at anything less, they can just let you hit and carry on with their day. Conveniently, Yasuie has a Grade 2 that can attack the Vanguard from the backrow all by himself, combined with other Shadowstich buffs that can be passed around like Halloween candy. 

You run the risk of burning out since you're gonna be calling units over other units most of the time, and the only things that can put things back in your deck is Murakumo's Generation Rare and the new starting Vanguard from the set. (Forget about Legion; it's abysmal compared to the Shadowstich stuff.) That being said, your opponent is gonna have to damage check a trigger for their 4th or 5th damage to be safe from all the poke you're gonna be throwing out. Or, be playing Gavrial. X-Carivou can be annoying for you as well.

Murakumo is shaping up to be the brilliant multi-attack deck it was meant to be. Get your 4 copies and live out those long-forgotten teenage Naruto dreams.
