Today we'll take a look at Snoopy... erm, I mean,
This version of Akamaru is all grown up and ready
for action. It packs the same stats as his human,
and a nice effect that's good for Animal Mill Decks.
Send this little guy out to attack with at least one
"Inuzkua" Ninja in his team, and you can discard two
cards from the top of your opponent's deck. Pretty
sweet if you ask me. Right now, that we know of, we
only have Kiba and Tsume, but I'm having this
suspicion that Hana will be here soon. ;-)
At least, that's what I think...
Limited: 3/5 (if you can draft an Inuzuka)
Art: I still say he looks like Snoopy.../5
N-660 Akamaru [Faithful Ninja Dog]
Again, sorry for the sporadic schedule, I might miss
tomorrow as well, but I will definitely make sure to
make it up for Friday's super special awesome card!
Today's card kind of falls under what yesterday's
card was, which is a "it's hard to top what we've
already got" version of a former card. Let's check
out it's stats, shall we:
T2 HC0 Fire
3/2 1/2 CA Fang
It's got all the attributes we've grown to love, and
with good stats for the turn, but it lacks growth,
which would have actually made it a good card to
throw into decks. Without being able to play this on
top of Akamaru P, it has no place in regular fire,
but I guess it's effect tends to lean more towards
mill anyways, as we check out it's effect:
[Faithful Ninja Dog]
When this Ninja is sent out to Attack in the same
Team as 1 or more Ninjas that include "Inuzuka" in
their names, discard 2 cards from the top of your
With an effect like that, it sure begs to be place'd
in Dog Mill, but that as of now still isn't a very
consistent deck, which hinders this card. Again, if
it had growth, I'd have really like'd it, but
without it, it just isn't worth playing except in
dedicate'd mill, which has yet to be a force to be
Constructed: 2/5 It's not bad, but we have better.
Limited: X/5 I don't know how mill will work here,
but it looks decently support'd
Art: Just like Brock, he's just too busy being
awesome to open his eyes...
Akamaru [Faithful Ninja Dog]
I really like this guy. For a while now, I've begone
to notice that [Partner] kinda sucks. I mean, you
can free drop him into play, which is cool, but he
only has 1 Support which isn't even that great Turn
1 either. Whenever I play Kiba, I usually just leave
Akamaru in my hand to be used for a Hand cost
because, as stated, Partner sucks. This guy,
however, is a much better ninja to have around for a
number of reasons; he serves the exact same purpose
as Partner, except with a few added perks. First up
are his higher stats. He's a consistent 2 Support
that's searchable by MBC, but you can actually drop
this guy in play without the unpleasant aftertaste
of having a fairly useless ninja who is only there
to be used as cannon fodder for Tragic Name or to
get RFG'd to Squad into Kiba/Akamaru. And if you
decide not to deploy him, just Hand Cost him as you
would Partner. And on top of all of that, he mills
cards when he battles alongside Kiba. Seeing as my
Fire deck has a decent number of Turn 1 ninja
already, but only a handful or Turn 2 ninja, I'm
planning on giving this guy a whirl come next set.
