King Enma

Well we all hope you had a good weekend. Today COTD is a rather disappointing one in my opinion.

The stats have quite good supporting value for a turn
5.

However the combat stats are quite poor for a turn 5. Then we come to his effect. You cannot send him out to battle is you don’t have a The Third Hokage in play, and the effect is valid. This means that he is useless to you until turn 6 if you are lucky.

My advice is that if you have the third out teamed with Enma it is a pretty sweet combo but that is all it
is.

Constructed: 1.25/5
Limited: 1.25/5
Art: 4/5 (Cool Picture. Should have been a better card)

Monkey King Enma
Leaf/Animal/Fire-Fang
Entrance Cost 5, Hand Cost 1
Combat/Support: 5/5, 4/4 Injured
[Adamantine Nyoi Staff]

Valid: This Ninja can only be sent out to battle when you have "The Third Hokage" in play.

Welcome to another addition of Naruto COTDs. As we continue to review Revenge and Rebirth, we come to another of its super rares, the big, beefy ape Enma himself.

This guy seems to run along similar lines to other summons in that they have specific requirements to meet in exchange for strong stats. Enma certaintly has both. Having equal combat/support at high values for both healthy and injured stats is a force to be reckoned with. However, Enma needs his pal Sarutobi around to be sent into battle. You got some options, though. It doesn't necessitate a team to be sent out in, like Gamabunta. You can either use his 5 support to make a minimum team value of 11 with the Third or he can lead a squad of his own. He is versatile in that regard. Having a hand cost in addition to the Third's can be tough to pay, but his entrance cost does fit well behind the Turn 6 Hokage. However, Enma has no rank and thus cannot be sped up with Konohamaru [Hokage's Grandson]. Also, since Enma is a Super Rare, he is as hard to get as the rest of 'em.

Constructed: 1.5/5 There are just better slots for your turn 5, Kakashi ES anyone?

Limited: 1/5: The odds of you pulling this and the required SR Third Hokage is just not gonna happen...

Until Next Time, meb9000

Monkey King Enma - Fire - T 5 - C 1
Leaf l Animal
H 5/5 I 4/4 (Fang)
[Adamant Nyoi Staff]
Valid: This ninja can only be sent out to battle when you have "The Third Hokage" in play.
The famous monkey king, he isn't as good as one would think. Sure he has good stats, but he has a requirement for the Third, which is a turn later than he and a hand cost also.and he is 5/5 healthy which is less than Kabuto.

Constructed - 2.5/5.0 (There are better choices for a turn 5)
Limited - 1.0/5.0 (Unless you pull The Third too, no)
Art - 2.0/5.0 (The Monkey King is supposed to be young and mischievous)

Monkey King Enma [Adamantine Nyoi Staff]
Fire
Leaf | Animal
Valid: This Ninja can only be sent out to battle when you have "The Third Hokage" in play.
Healthy Stats: 5/5
Injured Stats: 4/4
Entrance Cost: 5
Hand Cost: 1


Not a bad card. But before we continue to say anything else, lets look at the Pros and Cons.

Pro's:
Great Healthy Stats
Great Injured Stats
Fire

Con's:
Discard a card
Valid

Normaly, Valid would be a good thing, but sadly, here its not the case. Healthy or Injured, Enma HAS to be with Sarutobi to be sent out to battle.

Fire is one of the best types out there.

Its stats are incredible. Why? Because they're versatile. If your Hokage is injured, you're probaly gonna make Enma the Head Ninja. If Hokage is Healthy, then you're obviously gonna have Enma as a backrow/support Ninja.

Limited: 3.5/5 [Alot of Hokage support here. You can make a good Sarutobi Deck]
Constructed: 4/5 [You could make a good Sarutobi Deck with him in it. Alot of support, and 8 Trigrams :D]
