M-611 Narrow Escape
It seems Pojo noticed that for most of the last
review, I complained about the word "Rampageous" not
being real. He then looked it up, and I guess it
is, despite what my spell check says. Who knew? So
my review yesterday was probably a bit shorter due
to that. Honestly, this card plays into the
"Couple's Skate" theme this week seems to follow
(excluding horror pig).
Today's card is a cool new counter mission that
really just stomps squads flat. It's a card that
might even be overkill in the right situation, but
outside of that, it's not useful. But let's check
out it's stats, shall we:
1 "Squad" Ninja that was put into play this turn.
Remove the target from the game.
And bam! That's a massive effect, slamming your
opponent's two ninja investment and building your
chakra. Imagine all the ninjas that hits: Sas/Oro,
Naru/Yama, Saku/Tsu, Shiba, Saku/Hina, Saikura, the
new Shikashi, and others. Making your opponent burn
both parts of a squad, and not even having to chain
to your opponent's squading makes this card a very
hard hitter. Now some cards rely on the squad deck
more than others, so this is a pretty solid side
board card, but something tells me that it would
make one heck of a main board as well. In both Fire
and Wind, this card is dangerous.
If your opponent isn't playing squads, this is a
dead card in hand, but having two symbols helps ease
that a bit. Still, this card does rely on your
opponents deck to function at it's full potential,
which just reeks of side board. I personally really
like this card, but it seems like it'll be a bit
hard to fit it into any deck's mission lineup
without seeing your opponent's deck in action. But
when it goes off, a card like this wins games.
Limited: 1/5 Squads are rare here, so would be
getting this card off.
Constructed: 3.75/5 Massive power here, but
situational...I like it!
Block: 3.75/5 Same as constructed for now, but has
lots of potential!
Art: Just like everyone else, Naruto wants Sai to
shut his pale mouth. I can get behind that kind of
