7/3

Acid Slime
Jutsu-Wind, Cost: 2 Wind chakra
Requirements: Katsuyu
Target: 1 Ninja

Effect: Give 2 damage to the target.


We look at another jutsu card from Dream Legacy today, and it is another specific requirement one that can have a much nicer effect than yesterday's jutsu.

Acid Slime is Katsuyu's signature, if not only offensive attack shown in the anime. As such, it packs a decent wallop, effectively killing any ninja on the board barring random damage prevention effects. The cost is only 2 Wind chakra, a bargain for the 2 damage coming out, as 3 chakra is the going rate for 1 damage to a target these days. Unfortunately, only Katsuyu can use this, so you will have to dedicate some of your deck towards getting the big slug out. Fortunately, there are several support cards for getting out the summons in this set, so it is a little bit easier now to get out the big beasts.

Constructed: 2.5/5

Limited: 1.5/5

Beastly Mage

Acid Slime (j206)

Today's the day, Pojo-ers. Transformers hits theatres today and you know I'm gonna be rushing off to the theatre to see it. ^_^ Now, today's card is one of those character-specific jutsus. Acid Slime gives two damage to one ninja, but only Katsuyu (Tsunade's giant slug) can use it. That balances it out a bit. Notice that it's "1 ninja", not just one battling the user's team or anything like that, so you can use it against a stand-by ninja if needed. It's a pretty good card, but only in the right deck.

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5 (the valid user is an SR who needs another SR to work, good luck)
Constructed: 3/5 in the right deck
Art: I just lost my appetite/5

Ajj

Today we look at Acid Slime, an extremely character specific jutsu that will see no competitive play. Acid Slime can only be used by Katsuyu, Tsunade’s turn 7 slug, but it does pack a powerful punch dealing 2 damage to an opponent’s ninja. Though it is a good card, its character requirements are just too steep. In the only competitive Tsunade decks, Medical decks, there is no room for this card as it takes up valuable jutsu and mission space and will hardly ever be pulled off. In order for this jutsu to consistently work and not just used as a handcost, it would have to be put into a deck centered around Katsuyu that runs 3 Tsunade, 3 Katsuyu, 2-3 Summoning Jutsu, and 3 Acid Slime. Those type of deck’s just aren’t competitive as they require too many inconsistent combos. Though it has a nice effect, the draw backs are just too great keeping Acid Slime from seeing any play.

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 1/5 (very hard to pull off, but good if you can)
Art: 1/5 (Vomit)

 

Darth Sideous

Acid Slime

Today we look at another card from Dream Legacy called Acid Slime, which is another ninja specific Jutsu. It has a nice effect that will instantly kill the target... However, there is a down side to that and that would obviously be the requirements. The user has to be Katsuyu and since Katsuyu can only come out on turn 7 when there is a Tsunade in play, the odds of using this Jutsu are very, very slim.
Most games would end around turn 7 unless it is a drawn out game. Either way, this Jutsu won't come in handy often. It's just a waste of deck space in my opinion, you'll find better damage dealing cards later. If you do use, good luck on using it as you'll probably throw it into chakra or have it as a dead draw.

Ratings:

Constructed: 1/5... Not going to happen often

Limited: 1/5... The odds of getting Katsuyu and this Jutsu are slim

Darth Sideous Out!
