Beastly Mage

Rock Lee & Tortoise Ninja

Today's card is the new Rock Lee Platoon. When it comes to play, you can search for one Might Guy in your deck, show it to your opponent and put it in your hand. As long as he doesn't get the Sealing Barrier treatment, you're good! Then, this Platoon allows you to draw a card whenever you score a Victory or Outstanding Victory (not a BR or Outstanding BR), a Valid effect. Then, more Valid fun: these two guys together can use Might Guy's Jutsus. For a Taijutsu Deck, this two guys are great. Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 4/5

StormVyper Zera Rock Lee & Tortoise Ninja [Pupils of the Hot-Blooded Teacher]

Lot of effects here, and all of them exceptional. First up, dropping this guy into play allows you to use that cool new Might Guy from this set. +1 to your hand for nothing seems good, but it gets better. When his team wins a victory, you get to draw a card. That's on top that he's pretty beefy for a Turn 2, and he's Valid. It doesn't even matter too much about his ability to rip Asakujaku (though it is hilarious when it happens), but this card is good all around. Just one more piece helping to push Taijutsu decks into competitive play.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5

N-633 Rock Lee & Tortoise Ninja [Pupils of the Hot Blooded Teacher]

 

Hey all, N. (Who is I) totally spaced yesterday, but just so you know, yesterday's card (Temari [Some stupid effect that wasn't Wind Scythe]) isn't worth playing over Temari [WS], which seems obvious with that name...not a creative day at Bandai...

 

Today's Ninja has been popping up in decks all over the place, especially with Rock Lee [LP] still finding a place in any deck that has room for him.  And as per normal, let's check out his stats, shall we?

 

T2 HC0 Earth/Lightning

Leaf/Genin/Male/Animal/Tortoise Ninja/Platoon.

5/3 3/0 CA: Taijutsu

 

Man, for a T2 Ninja, this card has some pretty nice stats!  While I don't like how his support takes a nose dive when injured, his attack is just awesome.  Being a Genin, he's also great for NVS and Taijutsu decks.  His stats are quite good, but again, it's his awesome effects that really drive him home.

 

When this Ninja is put into play, you may search for 1 "Might Guy" in your deck, show it to your opponent and place it in your hand.  Then, shuffle your deck.

 

Valid: When this Ninja's Team wins a Victory or Outstanding Victory, draw 1 card.

 

Valid: This Ninja can become the user of Jutsu cards with "Requirements: Might Guy".

 

Wow, he can tutor out a deck specific card, allows for you to pull a draw off of any early game victory, and can use Asakujaku...that right there is pretty impressive.  He's a great piece of support that's hard to stop if he hits on turn and allows you to keep your hand full.  Even if all you do is plat him out, you're still up a card with the Might Guy, making him an even exchange.  There's not a lot of cards that can do that and still fill your hand, which makes this guy awesome.

 

Sorry I'm gushing so much.  It may seem like I'm just handing out high scores this set, but it's really because this was a very powerful set.

 

Constructed:4/5 Solid drop, great stats, great abilities, great card

Limited:1/5 No good Rock Lees here, and plats aren't really that good in Limited

Art:I think the tortoise gave him the liquor...that's a smart tortoise, something I never thought I'd say.../5
