Brute Force

Ok. I'm back from my little vacation after PortConMaine. Wasn't too thrilled at the lack of Inuyasha players, especially compared to last year.
So, it appears J. Wyatt been keeping things going by review the Ultra Rares of the new set. And look, one's left for me to do. Yay!

Brute Force is a nasty little bugger, espcially if you don't really bother using your sidedeck. First, let's look at the large positive. If you swing with anyone, you can discard a copy of that character from your hand to lower the defender's color values 0. On top of that, your opponent can't do a thing to change it for the turn. It stays 0. So, a free swing through and death of your opponent's character, right? Well, not really. Let's take a good look.

When you attack, you can choose to activate the effect to lower to defender's colors. So, how could this be bad or turn against you? Well, first you're discarding a copy of the character which, in turn, prevents you from possibly saving that character if defeated. Also, and I'm not a judge, but as I read the effect, it would not work if you or your opponent have a card out that continuously prevents color value lowering (School Hallway for example). You're hand is restricted, although I rarely see a hand of 9 or more. You have an incredibly small Kaitou deck which immediately sends this card out of the running for some decks.
Lastly, this card does not prevent your opponent from lowering your character's colors or stopping the attack all together.

Brute Force has a huge up side to it, but it is not for all decks. I suggest some Kaitou-ignoring decks and some Swarm decks may like it.

Rating: 2/5

A very interesting new Kaito, which I like, however it must be stressed that you can`t just run this with any deck. That 3 Kaito deck size is very small, and the 8 card hand cap could hurt in some decks. However, in a deck with around only 6 characters(uniques, since you`ll need a different version with this), this might be good. Especially if your characters might be a little weak and work off of defeated characters. If you are good at keeping your characters alive and don`t need that extra one you tossed with this, and you need a little extra power, try this out. But remember, School Hallway kills this.
Tournament3.5/5(in a deck that works well with it)
Art:4/5 cool
