N-633 Rock Lee & Tortoise Ninja [Pupils of the Hot
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
T2 HC0 Earth/Lightning
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
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
