Urushi

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, Urushi!

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
Block: 2.5/5

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 Dog Rush."
 
Urushi
N-896
[Feral Tracker]
 
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 at Gencon.
 
Since he's a feral tracker, I'm guessing we'll be getting a balance tracker and a resto tracker too.
