Today's card is a version of Asuma that can help you
out a bit. He's a turn 4 version, with nice stats in
Healthy and the "12 Shinobi Guardians"
characteristic. Now, once he hits the field, you can
look for one Ninja card in your deck that includes "Shikamaru
Nara" in the name. If you're familiar with the B&G
reprints from the last set of tins, then you know
that the Shikamaru/Asuma Platoon was reprinted
there, and that Platoon is a valid target for this
effect. Also, remember that you can Platoon this
Asuma, and then Squad that Platoon. Simple, but
effective. In Limited he's good, even with a lack of
targets in that format. In Constructed, he's great
for Earth decks. Trust me on that one.
08/24/10 N-823 Asuma Sarutobi [For The Next
Today's card is one of the best cards in the game
right now, at least for Earth (and somewhat for
Wind). First off, he's a T4 Asuma, but with a
different stat pool than previous Asuma's on T4. He
used to be 5/2 and 3/1, but [FTNG] has 6/2 and 2/0.
Personally, I like this better since you wil most
likely be using him as your head ninja anyway and
you won't be using him in injured since 3/1 on T4+
won't get you anywhere. His characteristics are all
"meh", except the always useful Jonin and Weapon
Combat Attribute. Now here is the great part of this
Asuma: his effect.
His effect let's you take any card with "Shikamaru
Nara" in its name from your deck into your hand. The
obvious combo here is to take the "Shikamaru Nara &
Asuma Sarutobi" platoon that was reprinted in the
set 16 tins. Play the platoon, then simply squad it
into the powerful Shikamau/Asuma squad. The platoon
has a handy effect of allowing you to look at all of
your opponent's battle rewards and adding one of
them to your hand when it wins any victory or is
removed from play. The act of squading it will
trigger the effect so you can get a free card out of
Basically, this Asuma is an auto-squad into one of
the best cards in the game and it gives you a free
card from your opponent's BRs when it does so. A
great card, in my opinion.
Limited: 2/5 Good stats for it's drop, but the
effect is much harder to use and not as good.
Block: 4.5/5 The main combo with this card is block
