Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans.
Today's card is from the latest set: Kankuro
[Tactician]. First off we notice it's a turn 3 Jonin.
That's pretty good if you ask me. He's 3/3 - 2/2,
which is decent for his turn. Now, the effect is the
really good part. First off: when he's put in play
via deployment you can look for one "Puppet" Ninja
in your deck that's turn 3 or less and move it to
your hand. Then comes the valid effect. During the
exchange of Jutsu you can move one Puppet Ninja from
your hand to Kankuro's team in any position. With
the new Puppets out this Ninja's team can become
quite strong. Just remember to keep him and his team
protected. You wouldn't want the whole team to get
Vortex'd, do you?
Limited: 2/5 (if you can draft at least one Puppet)
Art: What's with the face-paint?/5

This is one of my favorite cards in this set.
Kankuro is a pretty impressive swarming machine. Not
only is he a turn 3 jonin, but he’s got great stats.
Aside from that, his effect is useful in almost any
deck. Drop him down, search out Salamander, and drop
it in your team during the EoJ. You have an
essential 7 support ninja that only drops 1 when
both are injured. The nice thing about this card and
Salamander is that the tutor ability makes him
splashable almost anywhere. Problem is, most people
hold on to this card with fervor, so good luck
getting a hold of one.
Limited: 4/5 (3 puppets in the set)
Constructed: 4/5 (7 support on turn 3? Yes please.)
Today we review one of the best cards in set 12.....Kankuro
Kankuro has many, many upsides. His effect let's you
grab any puppet from the deck, he let's you play
them for free. Kankuro by himself is a 3/3, but he
adds another 2/2, 3/3, or 1/4 to the team for free!
His effect is not only great, but he also is one of
the only three ninjas to be jonin or higher and be
lower than turn 4, making him an easy splash for
fire and water as they have great jonin removal in 8
trigram and Vortex.
Another high point of Kankuro is the fact that he
has never had a solid Kankuro, meaning unlike Naruto
and Sakura and sasuke, Playing this late game ninja
won't hinder your early game! Making him easliy
The only downpoint of this cards is you'll have to
dedicate 2-3 slots in your deck for this. And
drawing the puppet with no Kankuro is bad:(
Constructed: 4 out of 5. Very, Very solid card.
Limited: 5 out of 5. Tutors a solid ninja, plays the
ninja, and then adds the ninja to his team each turn
for free.......sign me up
Art: 1 out of 5. Men don't wear makeup.......
Shalom and welcome to another week of cards, all of
which are wind related. Have you ever walked through
a desert, if not you will experience that this week.
Kankuro (Tactician) is a super rare whose abilities
are very effective for a puppet deck. This Kankuro
is its own solution, for the only problem with
puppet decks was that without the puppets you will
get SLAUGHTERED, common sense ehh. Only having
manipulation ninja's like Kankuro on the field is no
longer a problem since this Kankuro is guaranteed to
snag you puppet if one exist in your deck. Being
turn 3 does hamper the playability of this card, for
the Crow's (the one's most played with the poison
counter strategy) is a turn 3, plus there is Black
Ant and their platoon, all being aroud turn 2 and 3.
As for this Kankuro's stats their mehhh, atleast
when he loses power he still is stable with 2/2. Two
areas this card shines is the fact that it's valid
effect is great. The ability to add additonal
puppets of level 3 or less lets you get Black Ant
and Crow. The other less noted fact is that he's a
turn 3 jonin. Tha'ts ballin in itself. Now sure
there might be other turn 3 jonin's but I believe
there isn't any one's that are wind. His other
effect is great, allowing for you to atleast have
one puppet if you have a bad hand.
Constructed: 5/5 ( for puppets )
Limited 5/5 ( for puppets )
Art: As good as the card is, is as bad as the art
Kankuro is one of the most valuable cards in the
game right now, and for a good reason. He has
EXCELLENT stats, 3/3-2/2 on T3, which makes him a
big supporter. Furthermore, he even has JONIN on the
third turn! As if that's not enough, he even
searches a Puppet out of your deck. The trick with
Kankuro is to search Salamander (1/4-1/4!!!) from
your deck and drop him into Kankuro's team for free.
Tomorrow: She sounds like an MRI.
Fun Fact: Kankuro is Jeff Dunham.
