This is one decent version of Kabuto if you ask me.
Two combat attributes, Ambush, Medical and 2
Mental... plus a good effect! By removing from play
a Ninja in your discard pile to negate a Jutsu is
nice. Just remember: the user of that Jutsu has to
be of equal or lower value of that of the removed
Ninja. Still, late game that should pose no problem
for most. Pretty good Jonin, I must say.

I love this card; if only he wasn't a Kabuto. >.<
He's jutsu negation on a stick, and has some Nice
healthy stats to boot plus Ambush. I don't think
you'll be using this guy's effect to stop
everything, but turning your discarded Ninja into a
negation tool is not only a unique effect, but a
I tip my off to Bandai for this guy. They've
certainly outdone themselves.
Card: Kabuto (Stock)
Hey guys. Today we are reviewing the new Kabuto
from Foretold Prophecy.
First off, his stats are pretty good at 6/3, 2/2,
almost as good as Kakashi's really. He has good
characteristics in mental power 2, jonin, and
ambush. His effect, however, does not warrant
His effect, when you boil it down, is you RFG one
ninja from your discard to negate a jutsu being
played by a ninja w/ entrance cost less than or
equal to the RFGed ninja's entrance cost. There are
several reasons why this card sucks. First off, his
effect is very situational. You are hoping you have
a high enough EC ninja in the discard pile for his
effect to work. The thinking on that is inherently
wrong, considering you want those higher turn ninjas
to serve as end game ninjas.
Also, this card has competition from other
kabutos. The first, most obvious one, is Kabuto
(Database). Being a staple in water decks, in order
to warrant removing Database from your lineup, you
had better be putting in a very good ninja as a
replacement. This Kabuto is just not it. Also, even
among turn 5 Kabutos, this is not the best one. The
SR Kabuto from Emerging Alliance is minimally
better. Kabuto Covert Operative is much better than
Constructed: 1/5 <---- This card is competing
with Kabuto Database, with a mediocre effect. Guess
who wins that one.
Limited: 2/5 <---- A little better here as being
a turn 5 with good stats is decent enough.
lets see sound/jonin/male/medical/ambush/mp:2
its stats are ok 6/3-2/2
its effect its ok during th eoj you can remove 1
ninja from your discard pile to negate a jutsu of a
ninja battling againts this ninja with entrance cost
or lower to the ninja you remove.

limited:2/5 its ok effect in draft
constructed:1/5 i dont see it in decks
art:?????/5 im busy playing marbles dont you see
