Avg. Standard Rating: 4.00


Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.



  Genkai, the Young:
Not much to say here really. You run her in the 5th slot of a non urameshi deck if you want to run her. In a urameshi deck you can run her anywhere, just because some of the urameshi characters are lacking in the stability department.

 Genkai the Young. Now Genkai is pretty sweet even if she's a one trick pony. Right now Genkai is the fifth charachter of choice in most decks, with Jin being a close second. Her abilities make her lame printed attacks very efficient espescially in an heavy item or technique deck. Her offensive +1000 and attack cost reduction apply to any techniques as well as her printed attacks which is even more of a bonus. 4000 defense is fairly average right now and with a defensive item or two, or with a halt! to back her up she's not likely to get overwhelmed. However most decks have that one I'm Calling You Out which can pull Genkai into an earlier match which drastically weakens her. But since it's restricted you may go the whole game without seeing it.

Unfortunately Genkai's time in the spotlight will be shortlived. Yusuke, Unleashed in the dark tournament set could soon replace Genkai, the Young as the 5th char to beat. And Genkai herself is getting two new versions (and her own team). Genkai, the Young is still a top tier char but the bar is about to get raised.

Overall 5 of 5
Not overly tricky but in the fifth and final match you won't be upset to have her.
Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone.


Without Victory, there is no survival...
