Matthew Low Monday 6/29 - Sasori [The Best Toy]

Regardless of the fact that he's technically supposed to be a puppet deck character, who cares? Recycle put in play Ninjas like Temari [Wind Scythe] and Shino [Insect Warriors], and suicide swing because the Ninja's going to die anyway. Gaara [Tragic Name] fodder. Chiyo, Kankuro, or Ebizo for some puppet advantage. Whatever. His stats might not be the greatest for combat healthy, but his support is good and you'll be using his effect more often than not (though the chakra is heavy), so you can drop your suicide expert as head anyway.

He's quite good and I can see him more heavily played once Kankuro [Tactician] finally goes on the restrict list July 6.

Constructed: 4.6 out of 5.0 (Very good, lots of options. Could be played in standard decks as well.)
Limited: 1.8 out of 5.0 (You're not going to get him to work.)

N. Jolly
N-542 Sasori-The Best Toy

Hello again, my many and beautiful fans! Today we start with one of the most expensive, and in my opinion, overrated cards of the set.

Sasori is simply a better version of the last set ninja of the same name, except this one has Ambush, which honestly makes it a lot better, especially with Sasori of the Red Sand at 1...His stats for the turn are pretty good, but Puppets really need someone who isn't a support character leading them, as every other puppet master does a great job of that...and all three other ones have the same healthy stats...I really think Sasori should have Deidara stats, but that's just me...

Onto his effect, you can burn two Wind chakra to deploy a ninja from your discard pile, If you do that, the deployed ninja is removed from the game at the end of the turn. That's...not really that good. Since it's deployed, you have to pay hand cost (I'm pretty sure of this) and it burns your deployment for the turn. And really the best on element target to hit is Temari, and if by this point you don't have Shika/Mari or Tem/Kank on board, you're probably pretty sad. The best targets for this ninja to hit are off element, like some horrible Wind/Water deck idea...I may build that...also it's a good ninja if only for the fact that you need it in play if you want to play The Third Kazekage, who will never be reviewed...ever!

Rating
Constructed:3/5 He's good for a T5 Wind, but not for much else
Limited:4/5 This is really just based on his price...wait, you can't even play Limited with FR, so forget the four out of five. I'll give it a rating based on whatever combination of words I think of, so this card gets a Ultimate Dragon King/5.
Art:4/5 He's one sexy ginger!
StormVyper Zera Sasori [The Best Toy]

I'm not quite sure why we're previewing this card for the second time, but I haven't really changed my mind much about this guy. He's still a pretty good card, but he's not making as big a splash in competitive play as some people may have thought he would, and I really don't see that changing in the near future. Guess we'll just have to wait for Emerging Alliance to see if he picks up any new toys to play with

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5

 Hey there guys, welcome to what the heck week. That's right, what the heck week, it's the week that'll make you say that as you see it progress lol :P

First we have a card we reviewed shortly ago:

Sasori N-542 [The Best Toy]

http://www.pojo.com/naruto/cotd/2009/June/9.shtml

Above you can find my thoughts on this card through the link, I will however update you on it's current status with possibly a different rating.

Not much has happened since he was reviewed last time, actually, nearly nothing at all. However he's seeing more play lately and has become substantially harder to find. He's a great ninja and should be given such respect, as to its effect, its still going wild as ever. However, I think Sasori [Legendary Puppet Creator] deserves a chance as well and has been blatantly sacked because it carries no Ambush. This Sasori is going to see more use due to the newest update to the rogue list in puppet decks.

As good as it was last time I reviewed it, maybe a smudge more useful now.

Limited: 3.5/5 (Good here, deserves .5 more lol)
Constructed: 4/5 (Hasn't gotten that godly as to get .5 more here)

Art: Sexy is here again???/5
