Matthew Low
Jaken, Sesshomaru's Loyal Companion

3 Black, 6 White, 5 Blue

What more could you ask for? Three's Company's weakest color has been White for the longest time, and now they have a weapon on it. Sesshomaru, Wanderer took care of Purple and Green. Rin covered Red. Sesshomaru, Transformed covered Black. Sesshomaru, Legendary Foe covered Blue. White was the weak link, with Blue behind it due to Legendary Foe mainly being used for the Power Up effect. With 6 White and 5 Blue at your disposal, Three's is a huge threat as the colors are all covered.

Adding to this is the Power Up effect. While that will most likely never be abused due to the discarding of items after you Power Up, it gives you options when/if you draw him during battle.

The Remove from the game addition to all opponent's events is huge. Many decks like Hero Mains revolve around regeneration with Fun at the Hot Springs, among others, and removing that card along with Halt!, My Hero, Workin' the Looks... these can win games.

The next effect will virtually never work so don't think too hard.

The last effect is what makes the Jaken good. It's not hard to lock opponents out from attacking Sesshomaru. With a shield on Rin and Jaken, your opponent can easily be at your mercy. Attack with Jaken FIRST and take out two characters that can hit Sesshomaru. In most cases, they'll only have two. If done correctly, this should lock your opponent, since Jaken is still unattackable. Then just go to town, Sesshomaru, Rin for Preparation, Sesshomaru, Rin for whatever, Sesshomaru... 4 straight shards, and maybe you can finish the game with At What Cost or really turn the tide of the game with You Are Defeated.

Combo this with You and I Share Similar Fates on the defensive. They'll have to attack Sesshomaru, so you'll knock out two guys just on the defense with Three's Company. Then take out two more with Jaken and go from there.

If you're running Three's Company, there's little to no reason why you shouldn't be running him. Master Thief is uber tech, and Legends is a great annoyance with Staff, but Sesshomaru's Loyal Companion should overall be the choice when you're choosing the main Jaken to run.

4.8 out of 5.0



Jaken, Sesshomaru's Loya Companion

This Jaken is just loaded with tricks to try and exploit. Remember "I leave them to you" from Tetsusaiga? This card tries to breathe new life into it.
On top of that, he has a protection ability, can retrieve item from the deck, and makes your opponent remove all the events they use. The negatives? All of these abilities are iffy. Your opponent may not be affected by event removal.
You need to empty their graveyard to look for items, and if Sesshomaru attacks, Jaken's open. All in all, not too impressed.

Rating: 2/5
