Title: Koga, Inuyasha's Rival
Card Number: 95
Card Type: Character
Deck Cost: 4
Traits: ANIMAL DEMON GOOD MALE UNIQUE
Power UP: No
Game Text: Once per turn, you may remove 2 Good
characters from your hand to ready KOGA.
Reviewing a bad card again...
There are plenty of better Kogas out there. Koga,
the Furious, Koga Hidden, Koga, Protector of Kagome,
Kogas with Wolf in the title, and so forth...
It's great that you can double attack with him, but
the cost is stiff. Bankotsu requires two discards,
though he has to do that immediately after defeating
a character. Koga removes 2 Good characters,
restricting the decks he can be used in. His colors
are decent but nothing to be excited about in an
environment filled with 7 6 4 characters.
Bottom line: He CAN be useful, but other Kogas, IMO,
are just bottom line more useful.
2.0 out of 5.0
Koga, Inuyasha's Rival
I'm really not a fan of this card. This card is made
for a Team Inuyasha or Good Character deck which
isn't where most Kogas end up. At stable colors, his
effect isn't very impressive. Yes, it has the
potential to untap and attack 2-3 extra times in a
turn. However, you're removing 2 Good characters
from your hand. If you have extra characters in
hand, it'll usually be 2-3 tops. Also, that limits
who you can save. Not a fan. Not a fan at all.

Koga, Inuyasha`s Rival
First of all, it doesn`t have wolf in the title, so
wolf decks will be dismissing this right away. On to
the effect, once per turn you can remove two good
characters from your hand to ready Koga. A hefty and
for a pretty good effect. However, you would really
need to run this in a good deck to be able to meet
the cost consistently, and even if you do, since
you`re running him you are cutting out other
possibly vital cards, such as trimming the number of
copies of other characters, making this cost all the
more costly, and you might need those two good
characters you had in
hand to save ones in play. I guess it could work
well, and don`t get me wrong I love being able to do
a second attack with a character, but for this
cost, and with this character, I`m not too eager.
That and his stats are only barely decent for a 4
Casual:3/5(against only casual players who aren`t
too difficult, the cost is
easier to work with)
Tournament:2.5/5(add maybe .5 if in a good deck, I
might be too critical, but I just don`t like this
Koga too much.)
Art:2/5 meh, junk food.
