1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
Today's card is another jewel from the new set.
Basically it stops OC dead on its tracks, since
neither player can put in play Ninjas with that
effect name. It also prevents both players from
putting in play the new "Tailed Beast Form". What's
that? If you've read the manga, you know what Tailed
Beast Form is. *wink-wink*
Like this week's previous card, it's good for Water
control decks, but as sideboard material mostly.
I have pounded out argument after argument about how
terrible this is, one as a card, and one that it was
actually made. This is possibly the worst attempt
that any TCG manufacturer has ever made, in any card
game, for any meta-killing problem. Instead of
repeating my same points over and over again, I'll
take a long search into my Bandai account and just
copypasta my opinions on this card. (20 minutes
later) Tired of searching, here's one thing I've
said about this card.
Anyone who thinks Sealing will stop OC is an idiot.
It's specific to just Earth and Water - currently
the worst elements right now (though only a little
bit behind wind, depends on build), and by playing
it, you've lost two cards, and only one goes back to
Chakra. Furthermore, you have to get this mission
out before the OC comes out. When you're siding
this, you'll need to put in 3 to make it effective,
which will just murder your deck's performance.
Even when each player is using 3 of the cards, the
OC is still more likely to get out before Sealing
does. Even then, Chain Lightning can simply put in a
little bit of mission hate. Sealing the Nine-Tailed
is a terrible attempt to stop OC. It's a bad card
for the game because it'll start turning it into a
side-war, and we have enough to shove into our decks
Bandai needs to make a real attempt to stop OC. Just
errata it, and everyone moves on with their lives. I
know Bandai doesn't like erratas because they hinder
the CCG's sales. The OC tins are old, and already
bought out. Giving them an errata, even if it makes
them completely unplayable (which it won't), will
not hurt sales. Erratas are not the plague. They're
necessary for the game, and are very good for it.
Imagine if, instead of errata'ing [Addressing Past
Wrongs], we had a card that says "The Third Hokage
can't be played". Would that have helped back then?
No. Does something like that help now? No,
especially after all the mission hate we got from
Art: Naruto Uzuhangover.
Fun Fact: Stardust Dragon is cool.
