N-717 Tobi [THE MAN OF MYSTERY]
It's opening paragraph time again, but this time I
have an issue...is everyone else using my review
format? You know, doing the card's characteristics
and then it's effect? It seems like that has become
the uniform way of reviewing cards now. If so, I'm
cool with it, but I'd just like to know if this is
on purpose or what...should be getting a new vid up
soon (Pojo told me he's link them here! Yay!),
hopefully finishing up my BP trading soon, so this
should be a good week.
Today's card is the best card to come out of this
set by far. Normally, I'd give you the card's stats
and then it's effect, but this card's stats don't
matter. It could actually hurt you to put on the
board and you wouldn't care. That's not the reason
this card is Naruto's first staple, it's its
brutally simple effect. Ladies(?) and gentleman, I
give you the effect of Tobi, KING OF NARUTO!!!
[MAN OF MYSTERY]
During your Mission
Phase, if this Ninja card is in your hand, you can
reveal it to your opponent and move it to the bottom
of your Deck. In that case, draw 2 cards and discard
This is both a very
simple effect, and a very game breaking one. This
card adds to the speed of any deck, with only the
cost of a discard (which is easier for decks that
don't use a lot of growth ninja), which for some
decks can even be helpful. It's hard to really
explain why this card is so good, as just
understanding the bare mechanics of the game should
be reason enough to enjoy such a powerful cycling
engine. It allows you to see through more of your
deck, making you more consistent, which allows you
to do what your deck is intended to do more often.
I think you guys
may have noticed, but I'm giving lower scores to
cards because a lot of the ones we review are
average to good, so the 5 that I'm going to give
this card is going to be special, as I will
hopefully never give another one again. But a card
that has a slot in EVERY DECK EVER! deserves this
Limited: 5/5 Run
it in your deck!
Constructed: 5/5 Run it in your deck!
Block: 5/5 RUN IT IN YOUR DECK!
Art: This card is perfect...run it in your deck.../5
