Miroku, Warrior Monk

Woot! Ultra Rare Miroku! About time I say. Then again, if I had any say,
next set would have an ultra rare Jakotsu and an Ultra Rare Shippo. You
know you'd want that Shippo :)

Anyway, onto the card at hand. He has two effects, and both have kill
effects. The first is a power-up ability that will kill an opponent's
defeated character. A solid effect. Secondly, as long as he's only with
Good character, he kills any
character he defeats unless your opponent discards a card. So, either
lessen their options on the board or in their hand in one attack. Control
decks will enjoy Miroku effect I do think, as will Team Inuyasha and
Priest/Priestess decks. I mean,
all around his effect is worth it. Keep in mind, however, that he only has
3 white and he'll be a big target to your opponent. Give him the Hakudoshi
item or something to just protect him in general.

Rating: 4.5/5

Miroku, Warrior Monk.
First I want to say I`ve been waiting for really good priest/priestesses, especially an UR to come out for a while, and we finally get a Miroku UR.
3, 7, 6, not bad, not bad at all, not as strong as Bankotsu from yesterday, but BO7 characters are breaking the mold of what the color patterns were, so just coming close is nice. Also, a 4 deck cost, a little high, but reasonable for the high colors. His power up lets you kill an opponent`s defeated character, nice for taking out that important or high deck cost character that you defeated earlier. His continual effect is@that when Miroku defeats a character while you control only good characters that character is killed unless your opponent discards a card from his/her hand.

Notice it doesn`t say kill INSTEAD, I always hate seeing that attached to any kill effect, because it doesn`t steal you a shard, this however does defeat the character and then kill it, netting you the shard. Your opponent can stop this, by discarding a card, but if they do, that means they have to discard that card, and another when during recovery to save the character.
Excellent, either they have to give up the character, and replay it next turn, or they have to use 2 cards to save it instead of 1. Card advantage is important in pretty much every card game, and Inuyasha is no exception, despite the greater hand sizes and drawing each turn, cards are used quickly in this game, and having to give up twice the amount to keep a character in play might be too much for your opponent.
casual:4/5(good colors, though his effect won`t get off in a deck that isn`t solely good, or at least mostly)
Tournament:4.5/5(I really think this is a great new card, it works in any good deck, but this will definately help Priest/Priestess.) Art:3/5(Miroku is cool, but this isn`t great, not crap, but not great.)
Justin Balatbat I haven't done this in such a long time...good to be back in action with it!

Anyway, moving on. This is the latest ultra rare that I pulled out, and the first one for my friend who bought a box last week. I see this as a nice little card for both Priest/Priestess Decks and possibly a Hero's Deck. I pulled one out and slapped it in to my Hero's Deck. It works; however, use it wisely. I love his effect. Killing a character isn't as hard as it seems, but sometimes when the opponent doesn't have anymore cards at hand, they need to kill it. Sounds good, no? I love it's effect. Great for an ultra rare, but the white could be a bit more...or of a different color like black for instance or green. But all in all, he's good for a hand destruction deck, an auto kill deck, or things that could be blown into your mind. But not every deck needs it. You could possibly build around it too. I would love to see one!

Casual Play: 3/5
Tournament Play: 3.7/5 I would more or less see it in play
Any of the Decks mentioned above: 4/5

Art: 3.5/5 Stern face for Miroku...
