[Protection with Bones]
Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans.
Today's card is Kimimaro [Protection with Bones].
This Kimimaro is different from the first one. Off
the bat, he's got one hand cost and he's a turn-5.
But, he does have growth and a pretty decent effect.
Your opponent targets ANY ninja in Kimimaro's team
with a Jutsu, and the Jutsu is applied, the user
gets one damage. That could make your opponent think
twice about using targeting techniques. He's pretty
decent, particularly in constructed (sound deck
Kimimaro [Protection with
We continue to look at Series 8 cards, and today we
look at a Rare Kimimaro.
He's not that bad of a card either. His effect
allows him to deal 1 damage to a user of a Jutsu
card that targets any ninja in his team including
His stats are pretty solid as well boasting 6/3
healthy and 5/2 injured. He's a turn 5 and has a 1
hand cost to see play, and on top of that he also
has growth, so he could be a 7/4 and a 6/3 overall.
However, Kimimaro fails where it matters most. He
does not have the Jonin rank like most of the other
turn 5 Water ninjas that see play like Zabuza and
Kabuto[CO]. Overall, I don't see him making that
huge of an impact to gameplay, however, in Limited,
I see him doing well because of his solid stats.
This is the rare version
of Kimimaro(the only non-SR one), and it is pretty
good. Same stats as every other Kimimaro, turn 5,
Growth(a nice addition), and a good effect. Every
time your opponent 's ninja successfully plays a
jutsu card targeting any of the ninjas in Kimimaro's
team, including himself, the user of that jutsu card
takes 1 damage. This is a decent effect, not quite
as powerful as Tsunade(the one who protects the big
tree), but it has a wider variety of jutsu that will
trigger it, as well as being able to hit ninjas not
battling against him. Sadly, this is not a valid
effect, so if they hit him, you'll get to do 1
damage, then no protection after that. But it might
be a deterent, especially if the jutsu they are
using is Suicidal Action. This Kimimaro is good in
any Sound 5 deck that can't get the SR Kimis, or
would just prefer to play this one, since it has a
good effect, growth, and only needs the 1 hand cost.
Definately better than the SR Kimi from QFP, and
could be argued against the other SR Kimis(not
effect-wise, but overall playability).
Constructed:3.5/5[4.5/5](More splashable than the
other Kimis, and with a good effect and stats,
however, still needs a hand cost and has no rank.
Works better in Mono-water or Sound 5 decks, but his
lack of rank and State 2 restrict what jutsus he can
Limited:4/5(Great stats, only 1 hand cost, and a
nice effect make him a definite pick if you pulled
enough other water cards to justify him.)
Welcome to Monday,
February 11th's Naruto Card of the Day!
Today the card is Kimimaro [Protection with Bones].
In my opinion, for a rare, he's really not too
shabby. He's better than the turn 4 Kimi, and not
much worse than the turn 6 Kimi's actually. But the
only problem is, he is not valid, which also means
if your opponent is smart they will target Kimi with
jutsu's first; or just throw something at him with
Not bad, but Kidomaru State 2 is better now. Also
kind of unusual he ahs Growth. Hmm.
