Today's card is a new Sand Ninja from Shippuden.
Matsuri is a turn 0, which is good in limited, and
gives other Sand Ninjas +1 support, which makes
Temari [Wind Scythe] a 0/3. It also makes the
Shika-Tema Platoon a 5 supporter since Matsuri's
effect doesn't specify platoons or Sand-Only Ninjas.
She's good, but: Will she make the cut in
constructed? Only time will tell.
Limited: 3/5 (A turn 0 with good stats)
Art: It's a girl?/5
Yeah, we're starting off the week big with...really?
Bandai only got one preview?...so we're going with
That's right, we're doing the cards from the Sand
theme, starting with Matsuri. Now I know I generally
give a long review on cards, but with one this
underwhelming, I can't go into much detail. She's a
T0 Sand ninja, 2/0 0/0, Mental: 1 that gives every
other Sand Ninja +0/+1. That's kinda cool, makes
Temari into a 0/3 and Kank-Tact into a 3/4, but
other than helping out a Wind City deck, doesn't
really make Wind rethink it's curve.
Constructed:1.5/5 Not garbage, but deckable if
Limted:1.5/5 Same as Constructed
Art:Who the heck is this?/5
Oh, and my deck garage/column should be up by now,
so check it out!
Oh man, is this the beginning of Namekian Farmer #1
phase? Either way, it's about time we started
getting more playable unique ninja; it's seems like
every deck is packing the same handful of Genin
names. Her stats coupled by her effect however,
leave something to be desired. 2/0~1/0 was decent
before, but with Naruto [Control of Power], vanilla
Sasuke, Rock Lee [Loopy Fist], and now Choji
[Infuriation] all packing 3 Combat or higher on Turn
0, poor little Matsuri is gonna find herself getting
steamrolled.. a lot. My opinion is if they don't
have just an amazing effect (like Shino [Insect
Warrior] used to have), then they probably shouldn't
just be a 2 Combat ninja if you expect them to see a
lot of play. I don't know, I just think the pump is
pretty negligible and this'll only really see play
in dedicated Sand decks (and maybe a few Wind builds
just to keep the off-color count down).
Good day to all,
and welcome to Monday weeee >_<, lol without further
a due we present to you another review on a new
Well, wind needed more 0 drop ninjas and here she
is. Gaara's crazy fan girl is here to the rescue.
She's a turn 0 ninja with decent stats (H:2/0,
I:1/0), weapon combat attribute, 1 mental power and
genin + sand obviously. She has a very nice
characteristics setup for a sand ninja although
stat-wise she doesn't really cut it.
Her effect gives +1 support to every sand ninja
in play you got. Which in technical terms is good to
give support to a baki, a temari, a kankuro and so
on. That's not bad at all. However, if this ninja
were to have SOME support and a valid effect it
would be much better off in this aggressive low-turn
environment nowadays. Still, in sand/puppet decks
she may be very useful to run 1 or 2 of her. In the
late games she REALLY gets deadly adding support to
Sasori, Third Kazekage, Chiyo, Kankuro, Ebizo and so
on, which one by one it adds up to a lot.
A good 0 drop wind ninja that was needed but she
could have been much better.
Limited: 4/5 (0 drops are great here)
Constructed: 3/5 (Not bad at all for wind decks)
Art: The face of doom for Gaara.../5
