Some Things Never Change
This card, while there is an obvious upside to it,
has some major downsides.
First off, you start with 7 cards. Immediately, one
would think this as a major advantage. It gives you
a total of 10 cards at the start of the game to plan
out your strategy. There are some things you'd
obviously want this to run for such as hand control.
However, you can seriously do better. Let's compare
this card to Let Me Go Home which lets you draw 2
-Some Things Never Change compared to Let Me Go Home
+ Opens the game with a +2 card advantage
- Both give you a +2 card advantage eventually
- LMGH doesn't effect your shard exchange option
- LMGH allows more cards in the Kaitou deck
Therefore, by sheer comparison, Let Me Go Home would
be a lot more effective then Some Things Never
Change in the end.
1.5/5 Run LMGH instead

Some Things Never Change.
The new Ultra rare Kaitou card, which has the same
name as an event in Jaki, one other judge told me
that since they are different kinds of cards, it is
fine, but I still think that Score might want to
make a slight name change.
Anyway, this is a very interesting new Kaitou, with
an all right kaitou deck size of 8, and the
intriquing effect of letting you draw 7 cards at the
start of the game instead of 5, though you cannot
switch out for your shards. I think this will be a
very good new Kaitou, since having more options is
always a good thing. This card means that at the
start of the first turn, you'll have 10 cards to
work with, instead of 8 like your opponent, this 2
card advantage could greatly help. This does
slightly thin your deck size, but with it being 2
cards, who cares, and people use cards that draw
anyway, so this just does it right away. I would
compare this to Let Me Go Home, since that lets you
draw 2 cards as an action in battle once, with a
kaitou deck of 9, Some Things Never Change does this
sooner, and with only 1 less kaitou deck size. I
personally like this card, and am trying it out in a
couple of my decks.
+Lets you draw 7 cards at the start of the game
+8 is a pretty good kaitou deck size
-You can't switch for your shards
Art:3.5/5 Miroku, what are you up to this time?
