Wednesday's card is Tsunade and I'll save time by reviewing both versions of her. She has the highest combat of any ninja out there at 8 and a measly one support but she's not going to be run as a back ninja anyways with that big combat. She has Medical and can use the Medical Jutsus out there, but her big drawbacks are the nasty effects that temper that big power. Legendary Sitting Duck(uh, should be Legendary Sucker which is a gambling reference folks, more bad English Translation/Editing) makes all your opponent's coin flips Heads so running this one against the myriad of cards with coin flip effects is bad. Breakdown of Negotiations I think is the better one. She is a 9/1 when she comes into play but as long as you have two or more injured ninja in play, she gets -2/-0 to bring her down to 6/1. Depending on the deck you encounter, your ninjas aren't likely to get injured as more like outright killed so the drawback isn't so bad unless you are dealing with a Fire or Lightning deck using a lot of damage cards or a deck with cards that injure ninja. Tsunade is a Wind and while I was hoping she was an Earth because Earth needs the Turn 6 ninja more than Wind does, I'm not complaining. Kunoichi decks are now possible thanks to this set and Tsunade will be the biggest hitter in one.

Limited:5/5(the only thing that surpasses her 8 attack is Manda, congrads if you pulled her)
Constructed: 5/5(despite the drawbacks, she's still the biggest ninja you're likely to encounter in tournament play).

Beastly Mage

Tsunade (n-201)

Hello again Naruto fans. Beastly Mage here. Today's card is just one version of the Legendary Super Sucker... Erm... Sannin: Tsunade. Her effect is a bit strange. When you think about it, coin flip effects aren't used so much nowadays. So, it won't really harm you that much unless you're facing someone who uses Lions' Barrage or some other coin flip effect card, but that's a rarity. Having 8 combat makes her the strongest Sannin, plus her Medical attribute and her mental stats make her a solid card for a Wind/Wind Hybrid deck or a Medical deck (which are popping up where I come from).

Ratings:

Constructed: 4/5
Limited: 5/5
Art: She's twice my age?!/5
