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.

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)
