Sango gains +3 to all colors when attacking a Demon. When Sango defeats a Demon, draw 2 cards.

Back in the day, this Sango was one of the best characters. Demons were all over the place, so she got her bonus more often than not. Though now that's not always the case, which makes her a lot less useful than before. Her colors aren't horrible, but a weak stat (3) and semi weak (4) with one strong (6) makes her a little on the maybe side. Against a Demon she can hit with pretty much any of the three colors, but against others, she can be an easy target.

The bad part is she loses her draw 2 ability, which is also a big key. Slayers revolves around Demons and using these abilities, and while it may seem that hand advantage would be helpful, Sango has other options like Scarred Warrior and Legends that are also quite nice.

Overall she's not completely horrible, but just a bit overshadowed as more other Sangos seem to take her light.

One of the best Sango's around for Inuyasha and Company, and in Slayer Decks! Sango brings power to either deck as she is THE Demon Slayer in the game right now. She also helps fill your hand (but go through your deck too fast. This game doesn't always like going through decks fast).

In Inuyasha and Company, run her or Sango, Slayer of Demons. Either works quite well, both being powerful and deadly.

In Slayer Decks, you have the choices of...

Sango, the Demon Slayer
Sango, Passionate Demon Slayer
Sango, (Legends)

Personally, Legend's can become one of the most powerful characters in the game. Passionate Demon Slayer can become insane, and the Demon Slayer can fell most Demon's easily, but drawing cards too fast is bad.

That's why Legends fetches out Hiraikotsu and makes herself deadlier, and then borrows other Slayer's effects and becomes twice as deadly. All in all, Sango, (Legends) is probably the best choice for a Slayer Deck.

Casual Inuyasha and Company: 4/5
Casual Slayer Deck: 3/5
Tournament Inuyasha and Company: 3/5
Tournament Slayer Deck: 2.5/5
Art: I like it, really. Kirara is in there so it's a 5/5!
Rob F Sango, the Demon Slayer

looks like tetsusaiga won't save inuyasha now. the best slayer from kijin is here for review. slightly weaker than yesterday's card, but its still decent.
its effect really pulls this card together. when attacking a demon,it gets +3 to its attacking color(s). very powerful boost, and can be sinister if paired with her father. usually with that boost it can kill almost everything. then if it defeats that demon, u can draw 2 cards. although drawing cards will thin your deck and bring u closer to losing, 2 cards might determine whether you have access to that one event that you need from your deck or a charcter u need for saving another. options are good, and like most TCGs, big hands are good. use this card in a slayer deck, and its not hard to get, considering the starter deck thing gives you 5. so why not use it

Undefeatable Duelist Sango, the Demon Slayer

Cute, Female, Good, Human, Slayer, Unique
Deck Cost: 3

Sango gains +3 to all colors when attacking a Demon. When Sango defeats a Demon, draw 2 cards.

This version of Sango is pretty situational outside of a Slayer deck. In a non-Slayer deck, if you are up against a deck that doesn’t run even one demon, Sango won’t contribute much.

In a Slayer deck, the chances of using her effect are quite high since Sango’s Father, Demon Slayer makes it so all of your opponent’s characters gain the "Demon" trait while he is in play. Not to mention, he gives Slayer characters +1 to all colors when attacking a Demon, increasing the bonus given to Sango when attacking a Demon to +4.

The card drawing effect is great for the early-mid game, allowing the player the potential of drawing into key cards such as On the Move and Halt! However, late game when decks are running low on cards, the effect can actually work against you. In a deck that runs this version of Sango, a few regeneration cards and working fast to win the game as quickly as possible are good ideas.

I would recommend running this version of Sango in a Slayer deck only. However, Sango, the Demon Slayer might not be the best one to run. Sango, the Scarred Warrior can’t be attacked by non-unique Demons and when she defeats a Demon, it is sent back to the opponent’s hand. Sango, Legends searches the deck for a copy of Hiraikotsu and allows Sango to use the effect of any other Slayer in play. Both of those versions are great and there are many other Sango's that have their own way of helping Slayer decks so it is most likely up to a player’s preference when deciding which one to choose.

Slayer Deck: 3.5/5

Non-Slayer Deck: 2.5/5 - You’re either up against a deck with at least one Demon in it or you are not.
