Orochimaru

Today's card is a new version of Orochimaru. *shivers* This time he's got both an effect and a characteristic that will really work in your favor. First, his effect allows his team not to be blocked by any opposing team that's composed of at least one turn-2 Ninja (or lower turn cost). That's pretty sweet. Second: he's got ambush! For those who don't know, the ambush characteristic means that if the ambush Ninja is in the Chakra area, you can deploy him from right there (as long as you can pay the hand cost). It still counts as a regular deployment, though. He's pretty good just with the ambush part. He's also a Starter Deck exclusive. Try it and see.

Ratings:

Limited: Starter/5
Constructed: 3.5/5
Art: Creepy!/5

For Wednesday we bring you Michael Jacks…err…Orochimaru!

This guy and his tongue…it’s always out…or something coming out of his mouth…err…yeah. We’ll leave that with Kishimoto and whatever he was planning for him…

Anyway, this Orochimaru is very, very nice. It’s my favorite one so far, with a continuous effect that is like a built in “Attack From Blind Spots.” The last two Orochimaru were very situational, giving you the ability to play any water jutsu, or making all card values stay printed. This one however, like Hayate, prevents chump blocking, but on a much more nasty scale. He can’t be blocked by any team with a turn 2 or less ninja. Ever get annoyed by Shika, Sakura or Ino chilling in their team? Drop him, and they’ll be forced to switch them out. Plus, he has that new Ambush effect, meaning you can use him for a hand cost on turn 5, then put him into play from your chakra area the next turn! This Oro is a whole new beast.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 5/5
Art: Still Creepy…
Mark Howard Okay, he can only be blocked by a team with only high-turn stuff, he has Ambush (can be deployed from the Chakra area), 3 Mental, Sannin, and crazy stats. What more is there to say? There's no drawback to this, and it's even better than [Deal]. Probably the best Orochimaru.

4.5/5
Art: Only a Japanese person could picture Michael Jackson licking a sword. (Thankfully, the one you kill people with.)
Fun Fact: I have a lot of windows open.
Tomorrow: Do we need another version of this:
