Orochimaru

Today's card is a new version of everyone's favorite Michael Jackson-Like Ninja: Orochimaru.

This card, an exclusive from the new Fire/Water starter deck, helps you draw cards in the right situation. If your opponent won two battle rewards AND you have a Sasuke in play, at the end of the turn your opponent won those two battle rewards (could be more BR's) you draw two cards. It's pretty good, but somewhat situational. There are better Orochimarus in constructed.

Ratings:

Limited: Starter/5
Constructed: 2/5
Art: For some odd reason, I picture him doing the Moonwalk.../5

Mark Howard Orochimaru

This is the starter Orochimaru. Excellent draw effect if you have Sasuke in play, and Ambush included, but you arne't running this over Presence. This Orochimaru doesn't auto-end the game when you pull him out on Turn 3 with Ghost Panic at the Disco. The [For the Next Generation] set is just filler for starter decks to have an excuse to not have good Sannins in them. Any Orochimaru can do better than this.

1/5
Art: Meh.
Fun Fact: Orochimaru is a pedophile. He wants Sasuke.
StormVyper Zera Orochimaru [For My Desire]

... -facepalm- Letting your opponent actively win the game just to pick up 2 cards is a terrible trade-off, especially on a Ninja with a Hand Cost, that drops on Turn 6, and is named "Orochimaru". And to top it all off, if you don't have Sasuke in play when this happens, this card doesn't do squat. Yeah, [Presence] over this guy all day long. I'm glad this card is only a starter deck exclusive; I just have a feeling that Bandai would've made this guy an Uncommon or a Rare, and I would've thrown a tantrum every time I pulled one. I find it a bit funny how we have cards that are utterly absurd and then we have cards that are just garbage. What happened to the middle ground? =/

Orochimaru has been around since set 2 (Coils of the Snake), and we've only seen like 2 good ones in all this time. We'd better get a pro Orochimaru for his fight against Naruto, Bandai. I'm serious.

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 1/5
