N-765 Messenger Ninja
Man, is it hard to do anything when you're thinking
of not doing it...by the way, I was on Naruto
Shippuden Live last night, so check it out! You can
find it through Bandai's boards, and we had a
special preview card on, so you're really going to
want to watch it, boy howdy!
Today's card is one of the new lightning staples,
Messenger Ninja. Aside from this card itself, it's
also a part of the best draw lightning has right
now. So with that mentioned, let's check out it's
stats, shall we:
T0 HC0 Lightning
Leaf | Male | Messenger
0/0 -1/-1 CA: Delivery
Set 16 Uncommon
Wow, it's stats are really bad! I sure hope one day
there's a reason for it's Messenger Characteristic
and Delivery combat attribute...this is a card
that's super not used for it's statistics. Let's
get to it's effect quick, shall we:
During your Mission Phase, you can reveal the top 6
cards of your Deck. If there are 1 or more Ninja
cards with an Entrance cost of 1 or less and a
Lightning Symbol, you can discard this Ninja. In
that case, put 1 of them in play and return the rest
and shuffle your Deck.
It puts itself into discard for it's own mission,
nets you a ninja who might actually be higher than
turn cost, and thins deck? Wow! This guy is a
beast! He's pretty much a three of in any lightning
deck, as his effect does so much. Even getting
ninjas into discard is nice with Group Training to
pull them back. In Unlimited, he's a perfect Emina
Limited: 2/5 Consistency is his problem here
Constructed: 4/5 Strong here
Block: 4/5 As well as here!
Art: He can see into your soul.../5
Today's card is another ninja from a filler I've
never seen (I skipped all of them due to lack of
patience). For starters, this guy has the weakest
stats in the game, and is one of the only two ninjas
with a negative stat value, the other being an old
Naruto, if I recall correctly. Additionally, his
characteristics and combat attribute (Delivery? wtf?)
are mostly useless except perhaps Leaf since it
helps Succeeded Will of Fire activate. Now with all
of those weak stats, he must have a good effect
right? Indeed he does. During your mission phase,
you look at the top 6 cards of your deck and if
there is a T1 or less Lightning Ninja among them,
you can put said Ninja in play by being an hero
(read: killing yourself). This can add some
consistency when you don't have much low drops in
your hand and can speed up a T1 ninja such as Naruto
[DC] by a turn. The main reason this card is highly
played though is because of the "Messenger Ninjas"
mission card. The mission let's you draw 3 cards if
you have a dead Messenger Ninja, which is nice given
the ninjas effect.
Limited: 2/5 T0 is welcome here, even if it has
Constructed: 3.5/5 Really good here since Lightning
is lacking on on-color T0 Ninjas and it triggers off
the corresponding mission.
