What a fun card. Often a very overlooked card, Shot in the Heart can turn the tides of a game as it is almost like character removal, and the character can't even come back. Shutting off characters like Bankotsu and Jakotsu can be extremely helpful.

The problem with this card is that since it costs 3 and limit 1, there's no reliable way of getting it out. You'd be hardpressed to fit it in a deck since you'd need to rely on drawing it, and even then you also have to use it in place of an attack. This card can easily save a shard or even more as time goes on. Personally I would think A Tragic Death would be preferable in more situations than this, but that's for you to decide.

You'll need to attack this character eventually, and that said it probably won't be saved and there goes this card. It's definitely a card to take a look at if you need to stall or have problems with those huge 2 shard characters. The only problem is finding room.

3.7 out of 5.0



Shot in the Heart

Stop what you're doing! ... No, really, that's the point of the review.
Shot in the Heart is an event attach that stops an opponent's character from attacking. Excellent tech against power character decks or decks that need a specific character to attack. I still don't see a lot against event attachments, which make these incredibly useful. Now, all that said, I'd Kaitou this. Swarm decks scoff at this card. Not affected at all by it. Kaitou it until you come across a potent unique character deck.

Rating: 3.5/5

Shot in the Heart.
Today we`re looking at a pretty nice promo. Shot in the heart renders one of your opponent`s characters immobile, unable to attack. This can be quite
nice if tacked onto a character that your opponent consistently attacks with

first, such as Inuyasha, Chibi; etc. It is also useful on something you simply don`t want to have to worry about attacking you, like Bankotsu or Suikotsu. For a three cost is a little heavy, but if used right will be worth the cost. But work wisely, because this card takes an action to use, so you will likely have to wait until after you can`t attack anymore to use this, and by then you might have defeated the character you want to put this

on, but likely not since you`ll be planning to put this on that character once you get this in your hand. Definately Kaitou deck worthy, if not main deck.

Casual:4/5(all about attacking here)
Tournament4.2/5(this can possibly screw up your opponent`s strategy, or simply tip the balance in your favor)
Art:4/5 That`s gotta hurt.
Justin Balatbat Shot in the Heart

It's been a while since I've been reviewing cards. Well, after that long break from the not, reviewing world, I'm heading back to school and I might be able to help people with deck fixes soon enough! Anyway, I might also add in a deck that I would like to put up or something.

Aside from all that, let's continue. "Shot in the Heart" is a great card. Not very many people actually put in cards that would remove events from play like "Child Sacrifice" or possibly "Kirara, Enraged Protector." It would possibly force you're opponent to either kill off that character, or find that character completely useless since it cannot attack. It will help you in some tight situations, especially if you're going against decks that rely on a certain amount of characters, such as Three's Company. I would side deck it as much as I could.

Casual Play: 4/5
Tournament Play: 4/5 It's pretty good..
Side Deck: 4/5 You choose...

Art: 5/5 I felt sorry for InuYasha when he got shot...*sighs*
