Beastly Mage

Yamato
 
This Yamato was made for Decks that run a lot of Permanent Mission Cards. He's an Earth/Water with 1 Hand Cost who's also a T5. Having two ways to pay the Hand Cost can really help. He's 5/4-3/2, which makes him a good Back Ninja for most situations (sometimes he just could be good as the Head Ninja as well). His first Effect is activated when he's put in play. You get to look for one Permanent Mission Card in your deck whose Entrance Cost is equal or lower to the amount of Permanent Mission Cards you have in play at that moment. This can be good when you have a lot of Permanent Missions out. And, remember: The Permanent (X) Missions count as well.
 
The second part, which is Valid, is activated when one of your Permament Mission Cards would be removed from play. Rather than send it to your Chakra Area, Discard Pile, or anywhere else, you get to shuffle it into your Deck and then draw one card. That part is pretty awesome if you ask me. Note that it says "removed" but doesn't specify how. Remember that when a Mission Card is removed it can be due to an Effect that takes it out of play or simply because it expired. This effect is optional, but the draw power looks pretty good.

   That Guy

Turning Over A New Leaf
 
This shinobi definitely has an unique style, but before I get on down to the details of today's review I'd like to say that every card has potential and not every deck should be packed with cards of all the same kind. Don't take this as a signal beam beckoning for anti-meta play styles, but lets not downplay a cards utility by comparing it against Mr.Perfect Combo's....with that out of the way, the winds of change that breathe life into the fire of the Leaf Village offer us Yamato.
 
Yamato has always seemed like an interesting character in the anime, and has proven this fascination right through Yamato (Unique Style). First thought that popped up, the Ino-Shika-Cho starter deck, a deck that will take advantage of this card six ways to Sunday. Many of Earth decks benefit from draw support, and being able to fetch and recycle cards like Messengers, Lunch Box, BBQ, and others. The first effect might seem unreliable for those that play on the sure path, but I'll take what some might consider a risky effect any day in my deck...matter of fact I play him myself! His second recycle effect is not as glamorous on a re-examination, you have to make sure your mission is getting removed from play...but let that boil down to semantics. For a turn 5 his stats are fine, and three mental power plus his duel element is something to keep happy about. In limited, this guy will play not as well due to the choice to use other versions more First Hokage friendly, but in unlimited and block he'll do amazing in an Earth dominant deck. Just plant the seeds of strategy with Yamato and your victory will surely bloom...
 
Limited: 3.5 / 5.0
Unlimited: 4.0 / 5.0
Block: 4.1 / 5.0
Art: I Don't wanna know why he's holding his arm and I don't want to find out...
