Beastly Mage

Anbu (The Foundation)

This card is a KILLER! First off, great stats at turn 3, plus Ambush. He's good for Earth Decks, as well as Anbu Rush. When he hits the field, he'll nuke both discard piles, and then comes the "valid" part: when a card is sent to the discard pile, it's removed from play instead. So, no Emina or anything like that when this guy's on the field. He's also got good stats, and the Anbu/Foundation Characteristics (which helps with the new Anbu Mill decks popping up). Try it and see!

Ratings:

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3.5/5
Art: Anbu masks FTW!/5


N. Jolly
N-609 Anbu (The Foundation)-The Will of the Foundation

N. has a bone to pick with a certain COTDer...Master Wang said that Ino was our favorite Navel Exposing Kunoichi, and that is a lie! Mine has been, and always will be, Karin, and I will fight him to prove this! You hear that, Wang! I'm calling you out!

Wow, that really got away from me...Today's card is more Anbu support, and honestly, pretty good Earth support as a whole. As per always, let's take a look at it's stats: Leaf, The Foundation, Male, Anbu, Ambush, Mental Power: 1, 4/3 0/2 on T3. I love those stats, and honestly, I think they should have been Sai's stats (Not being Earth, I wouldn't have cared, but he's cool in Lightning) but being a T3 with awesome stats like that and Ambush is incredible enough to run just for his Combat and Support. I really think Earth needed a ninja like this for a long time, and I'm glad to see them getting it. It's one of my fave cards from the set, but let's check it's ability first.

Vaild: When this ninja comes into play, remove all cards from each players discard pile from the game. Valid: While this ninja is on board, all cards that would be discared are now removed from play. In Earth, that effect isn't really hurting you at all, as your discard pile doesn't really do a lot, unless you're running Zetsu (Which I wish was still played), you're not going to notice it. But for your opponent, it could be devastating. Lightning loses Emina as well as SCJ and Naruto COP being more dangerous cards to run. Fire can't run Copy Ninjutsu (...oh no!), and Wind can't abuse Sasori TBT or Gaara FOS, two very good cards in my opinion. Water can't get back things with the new Kabuto, but he's really not an issue right now.

So his effect isn't the biggest draw, but Earth having a great stat'd ambush ninja on a turn that it really doesn't have a lot going for it at the time as well as being a good part of any Anbu/Foundation deck makes this card a solid pull.

Constructed:4/5 One of my faves
Limited:4/5 Ambush is love, love the ambush
Art: I've never seen him before this, but he looks familiar...BOO!/5
StormVyper Zera Anbu [The Will of the Foundation]

This card is liked a beefed up version of Yugioh's Banisher of the Radiance. Like Sai, when he comes into play, Anbu removes every card in boths player's Discard Pile from play, but this guy takes the RFG aspect to another level by removing any additional cards as well. This guy will undoubtedly see a lot less play than Sai though, simply because Sai has one thing this guy doesn't: awesome Squad cards. Curiously, I had this guy pegged as being more powerful than Sai, so I'd have thought the two would've switched stats and Turn Cost.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3/5

Master Wang Anbu (The Formation)~Willingness of the Foundation

Another day, another card and today's is not as confusing as yesterday's in the least.

This card, flat out, is Earth's version of Haku~Camouflage, if not slightly better. There's nothing wrong with running this card in any deck so long as you don't have recycling cards. While the effect is very good-looking, it's stats are great as well. Having Haku-stats w/ better injured value plus Ambush is very nice.

Much like Ino~Pressing, this is just a solid card with a very nice effect that almost any deck can use. I do advise you keep him out of Anbu decks however for the obvious fact of removing your own discard pile from play, but that's just a side note.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: Come on! Pull my finger...er...sword /5
