Kabuto Yakushi [Spy]

Hmm... a Medichal ninja...

Stats are meh, effect is meh... He does let you know what's on top of your opponent's deck, which can be good with certain jutsu/missions, but no reason whatsoever to use him over Covert Operative or even Impact of the Jutsu. Kabuto is getting to be like Kakashi...

Constructed: 2/5
Limited: 3/5

Thursday's card is Kabuto, Spy, another rare ninja from Eternal Rivalry. This Kabuto is in my opinion pretty good, especially the sucess I've seen with Shino Aburame, Tracking from Eternal Rivalry. For a chakra, Kabuto can rearrange the top three cards of your opponent's deck in any order you like. While you can only do this during the Mission Phase, you could potentially get two of your opponent's key cards as Battle Rewards. It's very similar to the afformentioned Shino. Kabuto's effect could be risky but play in your favor as his effect never goes away if you use it right. However, Shino's ability activates when you really want it too, during Battle when you stand to win Battle Rewards. It's not as good as Covert Operative or Impact of the Jutsu, but if you have the right setup, this version of Kabuto can help you control what cards you let your opponent draw turn after turn, always a good thing.

Limited; 3/5(It's not bad but not as good as some of the other Turn 5s in eternal Rivalry)
Constructed:3/5(Kabuto has potential, but you may want to use his other versions more)

Hello, Naruto fans. Today's card is Kabuto (Spy), another US exclusive card. This one is pretty good. Discard one Chakra to look into the top three cards of your opponent's deck? Yes, please! He doesn't have the great stats that CO has, but he's still decent for a Jonin. He's also got the mental stats, and the Medical status. Not much more to say about this guy.

Today we look at the Rare version of Kabuto from Eternal Rivalry. He's another turn 5 for water, which already has too many turn 5's as it is. Let's see how this Kabuto stacks up with the rest of the competition. Unlike Kabuto's first version with stats of 6/3 in healthy, the past two have had a 5/2, which is mediocre at best when it's a turn 5. He has the same attributes as usual, which is always nice. Next, we'll move to what makes a card a card in this game, and that's always the effect. At first glance, you can see that the effect isn't valid, which is never good. For his effect, during your mission phase, you can discard 1 chakra to rearrange the top 3 cards of your opponent's deck in any order. So basically, you can have them drawing jank upon jank over and over as long as you have the chakra to do so. I like the effect as it helps you gain some advantage, but Kabuto is too weak for a turn
5 character. It might be fun to try him out and see how good he is, but I don't see him making the cut for turn 5's in water. In limited, he'd definitely be very fun to use against your opponent.

My ratings:

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 3.75/5
