A Six Samurai Tuner monster?  That's interesting, as there are not many of these around.  Kagemusha of the Six Samurai, is a Level 2, Earth attribute, Warrior monster, with 400 attack and 1800 defense, who as I mentioned, is also a Tuner.
 
Does our Tuner Samurai do anything spectacular?  Well, when one face up Six Samurai monster you control is targeted by essentially anything (Magic, Trap, or Effect monster, or any effect there of) you can change the target to thi face-up card instead.
 
It's interesting, and fairly reliable protection, but it kinda is a downside that the effect of whatever you are moving to ths card can only be something that targets one monster.  Anything used that targets more, or say all of your monsters, than this simply becomes a Tuner.

Kagemusha of the Six Samurai

Kagemusha is a level 2 EARTH Warrior Tuner with 400 ATK and 1800 DEF, which is pretty much the only thing that matters with him. It is best when used with Kageki, which allows you to bring out Shi En, which is great. It can also get around Bottomless Trap Hole, which is increasingly becoming a not so good card in newer formats.

Kagemusha does have an effect, which almost is never used. When another Six Samurai monster is targeted by a Spell or Trap card or Monster effect you can switch the target to Kagemusha. This means that things like Mind Control and even Puppet Plant can backfire when targeting your Shien En. It is just another layer of defense that is added to the Samurai deck.

He is played in 3's in Samurai decks, no question, and is not really even remotely playable in any other deck, as he is almost exclusively made for the Samurai deck.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-5/5

Hey, Pojo, Assailant here with your Card of the Day. Today's card is Kagemusha of the Six Samurai. Kagemusha, a name that sounds like, let's face it, an oatmeal brand, is a 2 star, Earth, Warrior-type with stats of 400 ATK and 1800 DEF. So, although its attack is pretty much nonexistent, its defense isn't that shabby. Its effect isn't half bad and is as follows: if one and only one Six Samurai monster is targeted by anything, be it a trap, magic, or monster effect, you can change the target to Kagemusha instead. Unfortunately, Kagemusha must be face up, which in any deck without the unbelievably fast swarming powers of the Six would mean exposing his unimpressive 400 attack, but this IS Six Sams so it's all good.

Now, forget everything I just said. You shouldn't care. See, there's really only one thing important about this card. It's a freaking tuner. A freaking Samurai tuner, to be precise. Everything else is just fluff. Fluffy fluff to be even more precise, since you insist. Just in case the true Six Sams weren't broken enough, along comes their own tuner. Now, I don't claim to be a Six Sam expert by any stretch of the imagination. But just about any archetype specific tuner is pretty good, and an archetype specific Samurai tuner is beastly epicness in liquid form. Or something like that. The amount of fast, easy synchroing this card will allow you to do in Six Sams is unbelievable.
Oh and then there's Shi En. ^_^
