based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
Friday's card is Shukaku,
and I for one am glad we finally have Shukaku and
the Nine-Tailed Fox. Sand decks are finally
possible, and Shukaku is the big guy of the Sand
Attribute Ninja. While you need to use Possessed
Mode Gaara's effect to summon him, you won't see him
leave the play that turn to an 8 Trigrams, Gianmt
Vortex Jutsu or a host of removal spells. He has the
same stats as everyone's big snake Manda, plus he
can abuse Gaara's Jutsus, which I think were limited
to the fact only Gaara can do them. With a deck that
can now contain 12 Sand ninja(3 baby Gaaras, 3 the
normal Gaara of your choice, 3 Possessed Mode Gaaras
and three Shukakus), Sand decks are now possible
finally(thanks Bandai :) )
Happy Friday! All I have to say about this card is:
WhOa! o.0 Total inmunity from opponent's game
removal? Yes, please. Problem is that this tailed
beast is a pain to get out on the field. You need a
regular Gaara, Possesed Gaara, AND Sand Coccoon.
But, he's still pretty good. In the right deck, he's
priceless. Try it and see.
I don't like
this card. I really don't like any of the card
with this new mechanic.
cannot be removed from play by your opponent's
The problem with this is that it is too hard and
complicated to get out. First you need Gaara.
Then you need sand cocoon. Then you need
Possessed Gaara. Then you need to play Shukaku.
And when all that is done you get a 9/0 7/0
ninja that cant be removed.
Okay, so once
somebody gets that out, yes, Baki is worthless,
along with great breakthrough and others of the
like, but trigrams still works on other ninjas
and Shukaku can still be damaged by
effects. Or I could just muscle through him.
All ninjas die eventually, and Shukaku is really
no different. The only thing that bothers me is
the power, but even then you ask yourself: Is
it really worth the trouble and money to play
answer is usually no.
unplayable/5 (there is no sand cocoon in this
Oh, and if
you REALLY like the "unremovalble mechanic" the
best one is probably Naruto & Gamabunta.
