Beastly Mage

Sealing Barrier

Today's card is a little jewel in the new Rouge List. Sealing Barrier can pretty much nuke your opponent's strategy. Let's say they use Long Awaited Reinforcements and look for a Ninja. You counter with this once he or she reveals that Ninja, and you just removed all of those Ninja cards from the game! Same goes with all those other tutoring missions out there. Also, if your opponent plays Kankuro, hoping to get Salamander out on the field, this card will get rid of that critter in an instant. In constructed, this is one card to fear (if only a little, LOL).

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: Someone forgot to pick up his toys.../5


N. Jolly
M-486 Sealing Barrier

Hello, my little droogies, it is I, your daring protagonist, N. Jolly. And today, we've got a card that tends to invoke a bit of the old ultra violence. It's real horror show, this card. Real horror show...

(10 points to the person who can guess the movie that came from in my deck garage...and later I'll figure out if points do anything...)

Today's card is one that has caused a lot of controversy, including getting an errata even before it came out. Even after that, people are crying for it to be banned or limited to one, even in it's current form. The card is simple enough: T2 HC1 Water/Wind counter mission, name one card and if it's your opponent's hand, remove it and all copies of it in their deck from the game.

Seems simple, but it really does strike down theme decks pretty hard. Imagine hitting Gaara in a Shukaku deck (I love using examples of decks that aren't going to see play!), or hitting NVS in an NVS deck (a more likely scenario). The only problem is that unless you have some way to see their hand, you're running in blind, hoping to hit their best card before they hammer you with it.

Is it a good card? Yeah, it is. You can deck around it with cards like Temari [Wind Scythe], Kiba [Ninja Art of Beast Mimicry], and Temari & Kankuro [Menace of the Sand], but if you're decking around a card, it's not really broken. Do I think it should have been made? Not really. It's a cool effect, but with how this game works, it hurts too much if it hits something vital.

Constructed:4/5 It's a strong card, and it can be a game ender
Limited:2/5 Just not a lot of ways to abuse it here
Art:I...just don't really get it...but yeah, Sasori is still dead, real horror show.../5
