InuYasha, Seeker of the Shikon Jewel

So, we get a look at the promos announced for this year. First review is on InuYasha. First, an interesting cost of needing a different InuYasha in play first to play this one. Now, InuYasha's special features come in his two graveyard search mechanics, making his cost more like a hint of when you want to play him. You search for a Tetsusaiga and attach it to InuYasha. Then, when you defeat someone, you can search for a non-limited card and put it in your hand. The versatility in "any card" searches, even with the restricts, is powerful. You could in theory continue to take characters from the discard to save ones in play every turn. His colors are big enough without the additional fact he gets his sword.

Rating: 4/5

How’s it Pojo Inuyasha fans? Now, I took some time off because of school, women, and a brief delve into Pokemon, but I’ll be back for a while. (Might end due to a trip to china, but that depends if I have a comp there…)

 

Anyway, this week we get to take a look at the promos people got when they went to the Regional and just show up. I would like to at least hope for one of these to be in the Northwest eventually seeing as how So Cal had one with only 9 people…

 

Inuyasha, Seeker of the Shikon Jewel

Cost: 3         

Rarity: Promotional

Traits: Cute – Demon – Good – Human – Male - Unique

Attack: 6 White – 3 Red – 4 Purple

Ability: To play this Inuyasha, you must control a different one. When played, search your graveyard for a Tetsusiaga and attach it to Inuyasha. When Inuyasha defeats a character, search your graveyard for a card not limited to 1 copy and put it in your hand.

 

Wow. This card really makes me wonder why the hell they made this exclusive to people who either have the money to fly everywhere or are lucky enough to have a regional nearby…

 

The first effect kind of blows a bit. You have to waste one of your 2 summons to play this guy, and you have to have another Inuyasha out to begin with…a different one. What that means is that it’s mainly late game or desperation type of deal.

 

The second effect should almost always happen because this card is a later game card. Chances are you already milled your deck of a Tetsy already, so it’s all good…If not, meh. At least you still have the next effect

 

The 3rd effect is really what makes the card friggin incredible. When Inuyasha defeats a character (which it will since you should be attacking with it first), you get a non 1 limit card for free. Should we take a list of cards it can get?

 

My Hero – Deal With It – Whirlwind Slice – In Command – Backlash Wave – Wind Scars – They’re So Cute – oh and HALT!!!

 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. More than likely, you’d be pulling out defense cards like They’re So Cute and Deal With It because it is late and you need to get all the attacks you can before you end up decking yourself because you already destroyed your initial Inuyasha, Bodyguard so you can’t replenish your deck…How very sad…

 

A downer with this card is that it doesn’t protect Kagome. I mean, in reality, if you actually got your hands on this thing, you probably have the Kagome promo along with it that we’ll review tomorrow (that one has the Inu-Kagome Protection thing), but this Inuyasha doesn’t have it like the Bodyguard does…

 

I see this working in Inu. Groups famously, and I’m guessing that’s exactly where it belongs. I can see some other combos too, but come on…Regen Halts, My Heros, Deal With It’s, and They’re So Cutes cry out Inu. Group…

 

Constructed (Inu. Group Deck)4.5/5 – The First effect is what keeps it from being a 5, but if it wasn’t there, this card would be insanely broken. Still, it’s worth a tech; especially if you’re running effective discard searching.

 

That does it for Inuyasha, Seeker of the Shikon Jewel. If anyone has any questions or just wants to chat, e-mail me at nimbly@gmail.com

Later Days….

Hm...I have a real good liking to this card for some reason. I love his effects! Just the first part...I kind of don't like. The colors are decent and so is the deck cost. Trust me, this card is very good when it's needed at the correct time. It's a good card to refill your hand. Not only that, if you have any Tetsusaiga, preferably the Tetsusaiga, Red, this card has come to good use. I would use it in a Tetsusaiga support deck or an InuYasha refill deck. It's good all around for decks that need to refill hands or use Tetsusaiga as a filler, or a cute, good kind of deck.

Casual Play: 4/5
Tournament Play: 4/5 You might see decks like this in tournaments if you know how to use
InuYasha Refill Deck: 4.5/5
InuYasha, Tetsusaiga Support Deck: 4.5/5

Art: 4/5 I just like it...I really just like it...

Not bad in my opinion. Decent stats for a 3 cost character, you must overlay him, but that isn`t too much of a hinderance, just be sure to only run like 2 of these, 3 at most alongside another Inuyasha such as BodyGuard or one of the other new promo Inuyashas. The second effect lets you grab Tetsusaiga from your discard and attach it to Inuyasha at no cost. This is good because Tetsusaiga on Inuyasha is always good, and if the previous Inuyasha had the Tetsusaiga on it, this gets around the discarding of all attached cards on the previous version. The Third effect is a doosy. When he defeats a character you may take from your discard pile ANY card and put it in your hand, as long as it isn`t limited to 1 per deck. Halt! anyone?
Or even characters to make sure you can save, or a location you really need(low likelyhood in an Inuyasha deck, but whatever).

Pros:
+decent stats
+cost of 3
+Nets you almost any card from discard when defeats a character Grabs
+Tetsusaiga from discard when played, turning decent stats into great
ones.

Cons:
-Has to be overlayed.
-Because of above-mentioned con, can be dead draw.
-Because of above-mentioned con, should only be played in limited numbers.

Casual:4/5
Tournament:4/5(in Inuyasha deck with Tetsusaiga) Art:4/5(pretty cool) Overall:4/5(Who didn`t see that coming?)
