Alright, Pojoers. Today, we review Guillotine Sword. A card that I can barely spell! D@mn guillotine....

Now, that effect sounds familiar... Oh, yea! That Demon seed Zabuza! This card effectivly turns any ninja into Zabuza. Well, Any Head ninja. You can't have Emo... I mean, Sasuke in the back with this huge sword, all protected... It has to be the person leading the battle charge! With it's low cost, it's quite nice to toss into a deck, and it could be of some great use for people like Orochimaru, who would only get the effect on that turn, and not have to face anything else afterwards. But you gotta watch out for those new players who take card effects like Yu-Gi-Oh! "I'll Equip Zabuza, Demon of the Mist with Guillotine Sword!" That's when you slap your head and hold back a laugh. If I'm right, though, this card should be Starter Deck only, thus you have to sit through a lot of other cards to get this one. And if I'm even more right, this only comes in the Sasuke Starter, cause I didn't see this in my Naruto starters when I got them, and I got both.

Constructed: 3/5. It's not perfect, but it can be fun in combination with Haku: Kekkei Genkai. Use it and watch as they can't Sharingan it... lol

Limited: I don't think these will be easily drafted as they aren't in packs. If you do deck, then sure. 1.5/5 though, cause the decks aren't all that strong to begin with, so this card might go to waste.

Art: Eh. It's Zabuza, so why not? Least it's not Sasuke... 3/5


Ninja Lesson of the Day: Well, I kind of forgot yester-two days ago... So I'll start us off with some fun ones. Now, these translations get changed a little, but the general idea is there. This is my favorite style of attack. Katon. Katon = Fire Release = Fire Style. The translation that I prefer is Fire Release, but the dub as dubbed it (ironically... Dub dubbing... Think about it...) Fire Style. When a fire technique is used in the anime, and it's not dubbed, you will always hear first: KATON!
 

Apprentice of Anubis

For Thursday, we review an odd little Jutsu named Guillotine Sword

For the pros of this card, we have a decent kill effect that can kill either 1 or 3 of the opponent’s ninjas, and on top of that, it has a VERY manageable Chakra cost of one Water and a Generic. The only problem?

We already have Zabuza Momochi [Demon of Cloud Village].

Don’t get me wrong, I know why they made this card. So we can get his effect way earlier then we could have by summoning him. Though we all see why this was made, it’s effect won’t truly shine until late game when you have the possibility to take out an entire team with this guy.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Constructed Water deck (Not utilizing Zabuza): 5/5

Limited: 4/5

Guillotine Sword

This is simple, pay 2 Chakra (Water|One) to make the User (who has to be a Head Ninja) have the exact same effect as Zabuza [Demon of Cloud Village]. If you make a deck around Zabuza this is a good trick to let someone else do what Zabuza does. So those collected Water Dragon x3 and Fire Ball x3 don't go to waste if your Zabuza all got Rewarded or discarded.

Simple enough, good sideboard in a Zabuza Demon deck. However maindecking is iffy. Getting Zabuza out isn't all that hard. If you feel that you need it, use it.

Constructed (Zabuza Demon Sideboard) - 3.5/5
Limited - NA/5 (Starter only, unlikely to see limited)
