Welcome to another week of reviews. Today's card is
one that makes me smile... seriously!
Urushi is one of Kakashi's dogs. And he packs some
nice stats. 2/1 - 0/0 is nice for a turn 0
(comparable to Shino as a Genin). Being Fire and
Leaf makes him fit in quite well with Kakashi [ANBU
Days] (the Dog-searcher). Now, what would a cool dog
be without some cool effects?
First off, Urushi has the "Tracking" effect. These
effects, although they have the same name, vary
depending on the Tracking Ninja. In Urushi's case,
when he comes into play (be it by deployment or any
other way) you make your opponent's Ninja a Tracked
Ninja. Remember: there can only be one Ninja per
player who is being tracked at a a time.
Also, when your opponent's Ninja is tracked, Urushi
gets +2/+0. Simply put, he's that good early game.
Mid to late game, he can still be useful. Too bad
the effect isn't valid, though you'll probably get
the boost for only a little while.
In Limited, he's good. In a dedicated Dog Deck, he
just makes me smile! =)
7/12/10 N-895 Urushi
Today's card is the first of our many set 18
previews, and the first of our Puppy Theme week,
For starters, he utilizes the new "Tracking"
mechanic, which is the trademark of of the new set,
allowing you to screw over one of your opponent's
ninja. or in this case, pump yours up. Compared to
the new Zetsu, and Hinata, however, Urushi's
Tracking ability is underwhelming. At best, he's a
4/1 zero drop, but Sasuke [-] is better in my
opinion. If you go second, you can simply track
whoever your opponent throws out, but if you go
first... well good luck. Additionally, if you have
him out, you can't play Ninja Dog Squad (All
Gathered), since NDS (AG) has "Name: Urushi".
This card still has it's uses though and is great
for Circus Rush decks. He's hit and miss in my
opinion, try him and see if you like him.
Limited: 3.5/5 A Possible 4/1 at turn 0 is great
Constructed: 2.5/5 Better options, but still tech
I hope everyone had a good weekend. Hope you are
enjoying TP1 as well, the new mechanics, a ban list,
and well, the multitude of changes we are seeing
this SJ season in Naruto.
Today (and all this week in fact) we bring you a
Pojo exclusive card from set 19, Fangs of the Snake!
Not only that, but all 5 of this week's cards fit
into a theme that Andy has lovingly dubbed "Ninja
I'm really intrigued by this new tracking mechanic,
and so far we've seen it on ninja that should
actually be trackers. (The dogs, and our Hyuuga
family mainly.) Urushi is a spiffy turn 0 that can
be a potential 4/1 right off the bat. The card in
and of itself isn't that great, but once you start
combining it's tracking effect with other missions
and jutsu, the fun begins. As you'll see this week,
all five cards will play off of each other and boost
each other to dangerous levels. It's not called a
rush deck because it's ninja are weak, that's for
sure. Even if you don't use it in the rush deck, you
still have Kakashi that was reprinted in TP1. I'm
hoping that we get more opportunity for the ninja
dogs to go back to milling (since we are losing a
few key cards for the deck after Gencon) but I'm ok
with them being able to rush and boost early game.
Plus, if you can pull these puppies out in a draft
event, you should have a pretty fair chance of
winning. Just a little heads up to those out there
who are playing in the Fangs of Snake booster draft
Since he's a feral tracker, I'm guessing we'll be
getting a balance tracker and a resto tracker too.
