This version of Genma is pretty good. Liquidating
either a permanent mission or a client can really
help when you're in a pinch. Now, remember, this
only happens when he's discarded due to the
showdown, not by Ninja effects or anything like
that. He's also got some good stats, and he's a
common. This could be useful in Limited, and better
in constructed. Try it and see.
Art: How he fights and keeps that Senbon in place
This Genma is very interesting and I almost want to
play it. The problem is that for his effect to go
off, you have to chump him away, not discard him by
some other means like Gaara [Tragic Name]. And
losing board presence is typically not a good plan
unless there's a good reason behind it.
He has decent stats at 4/2 for a T3 MP1. His effect
is pretty new though, as if he dies due to the
Showdown, you can nuke a Permanent Mission or Client
in play. The first thing that came to mind is
getting rid of my own Emi so I can replay her.
Second thing is getting rid of my opponent's Emina.
Third thing was... I'd rather play Anko to get rid
of Permanent Missions, but Genma can nuke Caged
I can see him seeing some play in sideboards as a
possible removal tool for Emina instead of Shabadaba,
as he'll be on-element for Fire, not a completely
useless card in worst-case scenario, and can nuke
other things as well. I'm just not fond of his
trigger. I would have rather had the effect similar
to Kabuto [Withdrawl] or Anki [Blocking the
Ambition] as Genma is something you can't
necessarily control. Even chumping with him may not
work if they play removal on him instead.
Unique card with an effect that's not seen often.
Just would have liked a better trigger.
Limited: 3.3 out of 5 - Solid Ninja drop. Effect
likely won't be used.
Constructed: 2.6 out of 5 - Sideboard card at best
IMO, though tempo might consider it. Even then
likely a stretch outside of decks that won't run
