Beastly Mage

The 5th Kazekage

Today's card is a new version of Gaara. If yesterday's card had somewhat of a situational effect, this one is even more. It only activates if you have 4 or more Sand Ninjas. When that happens, he gets +2/+2 and can't be affected by your opponent's effects. The effect is good, but not valid. >.< Still, good for a Sand deck, but nowhere else.

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: "Dude, where's my gourd?"/5


N. Jolly

N-661 The 5th Kazekage [Reliance]

Hello again, it's Mr. N. Jolly, and today I've finally done another N.'s End! Check it out, just tool'd around with a Sand/Medical deck!

But here's a card that I actually suggest for the deck, Gaara with a job! Yeah, it's another 5th Kazekage, so let's check out his stats, shall we:

T5 HC1 Wind
Sand/Male/Satoosa/Name: Gaara of the Desert
6/2 4/2 CA: Sand
Rarity: Rare

The 5th is actually a decent T5 for Wind, but he has other forms that are generally better. I'm not much a fan of his power, but I've probably just been spoil'd on how good Kakashi is, so he's not bad at all. Having the Sand CA gives him access to all the Gaara jutsu we've all come to love, but he's really not the guy to be using them, so just stick to the normal wind line up for him. But his effect is actually pretty nice, if not a bit restrictive:

[Reliance]

While you have 4 or more other "Sand" Ninja in play, this Ninja gets +2/+2 and cannot be affect'd by your opponent's effects.

This should really be valid, but beyond that, it's a pretty good effect. I guess I'm yet another person who bemoans that puppets don't have villages, but you should have a good amount of ninja to pull this effect off, especially considering Sasori (Childhood) will be coming out next set. There's plenty of Sand ninja for you to play, especially considering The 4th comes out this set too. It's not the best effect, but as the center of a Wind City deck he's a pretty good ninja.

Construct'd: 3/5 A good card, but hard to overcome a legacy of other Gaaras out there.
Limited: 1.5/5 I doubt you'll get off it's effect, but it's still pretty good as a beat stick.
Art('d): Oh god, Gaara can see the sky shark! It's God's perfect killing machine! Save yourself!/5

And check out the new N.'s End, up after a month of danger and sexy adventures! Be sure to send your decks in and I'll give them a look over. And remember, always fight the whale!
