Tokijin, the Evil Sword
Welcome back to the last day of Legendary Swords
HAHA! TYPO! Anyway, Tokijin, the Evil Sword is a
GREAT card. Even without Seshsomaru, it's still VERY
good because it cripples whoever it hits, and
usually marks that character you hit off. No way
they are surviving a -3 to their colors assault.
Sesshomaru, on the other hand, makes Tokijin's true
power emerge. With a mighty +2 to all his colors, he
comes a god with the additional -3 to all colors of
the attacked character Tokijin gives. You have NO
reason why NOT to run this with Sesshomaru in a deck
(Three's Company, Son of the Dog Leader).
Now, in any other deck, you must be careful with the
"Evil" Tokijin induces (Thus making him useless with
Inuyasha and Company). Infact, don't bother unless
you drool over -3 to all colors to your opponent.
Tokijin, the Evil Sword...
Casual (Three's Company), 5/5
Tournament (Three's Company), 5/5

Keep it cool everyone, and thanks for viewing
Legandary Swords week!
love when your e-mail comes back errored. I thought
I’d slide in my Tensaiga review alongside Tokijin.
Tensaiga, Sword of Life
So, let’s take a look at the effect. You bounce the
sword back to your hand in order to save a defeated
character. Well, as most people on first glance saw
this card, why wouldn’t you put this card in your
deck? A recurring save for any character for a
rather low cost. So, where’s the drawback?
Speed. Tensaiga cannot be used until the recovery
phase. By that time, the character equipped with
Tensaiga may have been defeated, thus Tensaiga’s
effect would be null. Odds are that that character
WILL be defeated as well. Your opponent isn’t dumb
enough to allow you the option of who to rescue and
let you keep Tensaiga.
Tensaiga = Bull’s Eye
So, how do we effectively use Tensaiga? Well, give
it to a character who’s odds of survival are high.
For example, if you have Hojo; Kagome, Sickly
Beauty; and Ayumi; you’d want to give Ayumi Tensaiga
since your opponent would normally need to go
through Hojo then Kagome in order to get at Ayumi.
By then, you should be able to neutralize their
advance. Tensaiga can be incredibly useful, but you
need to plan ahead in your deck and play smart in
order for it to truly be helpful.
3/5 It’s effect is very potent, but you need to
really plan it out smart.
“Evil Sword” doesn’t do this card justice. Any
character it’s equipped with gains ‘Evil’, which has
little effect to most decks. However, when that
character attacks, the attacked character loses -3
to all colors. So, effectively, your character gains
a +3 bonus when attacking. At the cost of 2, I’ll
take that! Now, let’s also not forget that
Sesshomaru gains +2 to his colors when equipped. So,
Sesshomaru gains a +5 advantage when attacking…AAH!
That’s sickening! So…
Most decks: 4/5 Bonus only when attacking, but
Sesshomaru/3s Company Deck: 5/5 SICKNESS!
