1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.

Knives101 Deadly Fighter Braid Claw. Well creatures for one mana are very rare. D.F.B.C. is very useful. You can cast him on your first turn. This is crucial in a rush deck. Ok ok. Everyone knows that Claw is just plain good. There's no point in going into any further detail.

Rating: 5 (Duh)

Hello Pojo People! This will be my first of many reviews for cards in this wonderful new game Duel Masters! I hope with my "expertise" on these cards will help you decide if they are worthy of being in your great, powerful, I never lose deck! Well, on to the review:

Deadly Fighter Braid Claw -

Constructed - 2/5

An interesting card..it really does require its own deck. Nowadays, the only deck that this thing really fits in is those Red / Black Suicide decks. This card does get "owned" by stuff like La Ura Giga and other cheap blockers. But still, by making your opponent drop that cheap blocker, then they have missed a turn of attacking..so it kinda balances things out. I still really don't suggest this unless you're running a Suicide deck.

Limited - 3/5

In limited this can be a pretty nasty card. Though there are still the blockers to be afraid of, you really dont need to worry about an opponents shield trigger all that much.

Cecillbill Deadly Fighter Braid Claw
Although Deadly Fighter Braid Claw is forced to attack each turn when able and packs a paltry 1000 power, this 1 mana drop has more "deck-ability" than most players give it credit. Deadly Fighter Braid Claw is Fire's "little engine that could."

#1. Rusher. For 1 mana you get a hitter than can take out a shield on turn 2 if your opponent isn't rocking 1-2 drop blockers or early removal. Dropping two or three of these guys out against a slow-starting deck can spell mucho trouble for your opponent.

#1. Forced To Attack Each Turn When Able. If there are any untapped blockers in your opponent's battle zone when it's time to attack, then Deadly Fighter Braid Claw is toast.

#2. Low Power. Any creature can kill Deadly Fighter Braid Claw and every removal spell can slap it except for Critical Blade. That's almost complete vunerability.

Deadly Fighter Braid Claw is well-suited for Rush and mono-Fire decks that apply rapid and constant pressure. In fact, that's the whole idea behind this creature. Deadly Fighter Braid Claw will be seeing increased play now that mono-civilization decks join the ranks of top tier decks. Even so, using Deadly Fighter Braid Claw entials viewing it as an expendable hitter since it's card text often sends it slamming into a blocker. Usually that means dropping it 1st turn or at the random moments when your opponent's field is blocker-less.

Constructed: 3/5. Deadly Fighter Briad Claw can fit into the most popular deck builds that employ Fire--ie. Fire/Darkness Rush, Human Rush, Armored Dragon, mono-Fire. Don't get attached to Deadly Fighter Braid Claw if you deck it, but don't necessarily ignore it if you're running Fire.
