Kazekage
[Request for a Delay]

Average Card Rating

Limited: 3.06
Constructed: 3.25

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.

Beastly Mage

Kazekage (N-147)

Hey fellow Naruto fans, Beastly Mage once again here. Today's card is Ninja 147, the Kazekage (masked version). It's a pretty strong card. 6/3-4/2 is pretty good, and being a turn 6 is kinda standard for Satoosa/Sannin-Level Ninjas. A Mental Power of 2 is pretty good, not as much as others, but still quite good. Now, the effect is actually good in some cases. If you're preparing something good to finish the game, but need to buy some time, this guy can help. Or, he can delay the inevitable, it all depends on the situation.

Ratings:
Constructed: 4/5 in a Mental Power deck or a Sand deck, 3/5 in any other.
Limited: 3/5

St. Yuriy

St. Yuriy or Yuriy (that's my nickname. I prefer St., but I can understand if you can't put that. I don't know, religious reasons or something.)
Kazekage - T 6, 1 C
Sand l Satoosa l Male l MP: 2
H 6/3, I 4/2 (Ninjutsu)
[Request for Delay]
Valid: During your opponent's Mission Phase, you can
discard this Ninja to skip the Battle Phase of the turn.
Finally Wind gets a satoosa rank ninja, basic kage combat and support.
Besides Baki though, Wind has lacked a ninja with over 4 combat. The effect though is the real kicker. Unless they are pumped up with high power teams, you really wouldn't want to get rid of him. I think it would look better on a smaller ninja, but it doesn't work on Kazekage. He is a big hitter for wind and I'd run him or the other Kazekage if you are running wind.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Limited: 3.5/5
Art: 2/5 (Kinda dull, but I like the Kazekage)

Kazekage

Welcome to the start of a new week with even more cards to review.

This card has good stats for a turn 6. A good metal power. Its effect could buy you some valuable time. It is also good that the effect if valid.

However you have to give up a 6/3 ninja to stop your opponent from battling this turn, which seems a little steep in my books.

My advice is if you do play a wind deck with a lot of sand ninjas Kazekage Masterpiece is a much better choice.

Constructed: 2/5
Limited: 2.5/5
Art: 4/5

Kazekage
Sand/Satoosa/Male/Wind/Mental Power 2
Entrance Cost 6, Hand Cost 1
Combat/Support: 6/3, 4/2 Injured
Valid: You may discard this Ninja during your opponent's mission phase to skip the battle phase of that turn.

Welcome welcome to another week of reviews. We start of with the rare Kazekage aka. Orochimaru-in-assassin-mode. This card is one of two main options for the top of the curve in the dedicated Wind deck, so let's take a good look at this one.

The turn cost and hand cost are standard for a Satoosa, as are the stats. His effect is Valid, which is especially nice given the effect. This card is in a lot of ways like Hizashi Hyuga's from last week. However, giving up a Satoosa to give basically the same effect (i.e. delaying the inevitable) while weakening your board position just hurts the concept. One plus is that the effect is Valid, which means that you can pop the guy off to stop the battle phase even when he's about to die. That gives this card a bit more buff in general than Hizashi. Mental Power 2 is always a plus, giving Mental Wind decks a nice finisher. On to the ratings!

Constructed: 2.75/5 (Just not a fan of this type of sacrifice effect)
Limited: 4/5: Grabbing a rare Satoosa can never be a bad thing...)

-Until next time, meb9000
