Beastly Mage

Iou
 
If there ever was a Ninja that Weapon Decks love, it's this guy. He's a T2 with 2/2-1/1, who's Leaf and Weapon. When he's in play, and you put Ninjas with the "Weapon" Combat Attribute in play, those Ninjas get a +1/+1 Coin on them. His second effect kicks in when any of your Teams with one or more "Weapon" Ninjas wins an Outstanding Victory. If that happens, you get a Battle Reward. For an Early-Turn Ninja such as him, his effect is pretty good. Remember that if a Ninja has two or more Combat Attributes, if one of them is "Weapon" the effect still applies. Remember that a lot of Ninjas such as Temari and Tenten are Weapon Ninjas.

That Guy

The Toy Makers Card Friendly Cousin

Weapon Users have something to smile about...thanks to Iou (Weapon Creator) you can all grab your trusty kunai and shurikens off your shelves and polish those bad boys off. Just kidding but seriously, don't be surprised if you run into a Kunai or two being played by an opponent who's main strategy is revolving around the Weapon attribute...but I digress from the main topic.

Iou is a solid support card, with fair stats considering he's a turn two, but the effect is the real beauty of this card. Any other weapon user who comes into play will get a small +1/+1 boost, and if any ninja team that has a weapon attribute ninja with a +1/+1 coin on it wins an outstanding victory you'll snag a prize. Consider that this effect could have been limited solely to when Iou comes in play means this guys coin ability will stack and as long as you can keep Iou on the field is effect is available.

The opportunities of gaining combat power in a weapons deck is not only probable...it can sometimes be the sole strategy of the deck. Either a small one two combo or using Iou as key support for a whole deck, this guy has some serious potential and will definitely been seen around local shops...

Limited: 3.5 / 5
Unlimited: 4.0 / 5
Block: 3.0 / 5
Art: Must....Resist.....Easy puns......
