So it's not recursion, eh? Looks like I was slightly off on this week's theme. Oh well, there's still some recursion-y goodness in the pipe. Anywho...

The pro's are pretty sweet on this one, as it's one more in wind's already formidable arsenal of mental boosters. Unfortunately, that's also the problem, and that one snag is enough for me not to suggest this card for regular play. You take the fact that Wind and Earth combined have a whole slew of great mental power cards, and you end up with yesterday's situation all over again: namely, you're already at a premium for mission space in your deck, and you don't want to go filling it with mediocre cards when much better ones are available. Heck, One Morning isn't mental-based and people still run it over this one.

Again, it's another card I'd reserve for Limited and those without an overly-abundant supply of cards.

Constructed: 2.5/5 - Good, but there's better out there.

Limited: 3/5 - Drafting Mental? Snag this for a nice little buff.

Art: 3/5 - Can a normal person even bend like that?


Situation Assessment

Pros: + Mental Power
Affects All of Your Ninja
Turn 1

Cons: Only Lasts Two Turns

Gomen Gomen. I’m so sorry I haven’t been keeping up with CotD lately. Being on college break and going back to a house without the interwebs makes it kind of difficult. But I managed to somehow find a way to get online and back to you. Happy, belated, Christmas by the way, may each of you have pulled Supers out of your stocking stuffers. Taking a look at our card of the day, it’s actually not that bad. I’m not too sure it’s main deck material, but it makes a nice side deck card for anti-anti-mental side decks. This card makes sure that Sakura, or any other 2 or 3 + mental side board ninja, doesn’t eat the face of your Ibiki or Suzume by herself as long as they have some company, regardless of who they are. This also helps you fuel up for that Wind Style: Great Breakthough for later in the game or some other Wind Jutsu you’re looking to use. All in all it’s not bad, just not great.

Constructed: 3/5 (Just not main board material)
Limited: 2.5/5 (Can be amazing in a Wind/Mental build, if you can pull it off in Limited)
Art: 4/5 (Shikamaru with Shadow Head to Wall Smash FTW)


Situation Assessment
Cost: 1 Turn, 1 Card
Permanent (2)
All your ninjas get +2 mental power.

Very Short today.

This card gives your ninjas +1 mental for 2 turns. This could be good in mental decks, and of course terrible anywhere else. It's not too good in mental decks, though, as it's only for 2 turns. I've seen better.

Constructed: 2.5/5
Limited: 2/5

Catch me here:


Hey all, hope everyone had a great Christmas, or for others who don't celebrate it, happy holidays! Now that we're back to work, (with no wage still...), it's time to check out today's card:

Situation Assessment-Rare Wind Mission; Costs: 1-1
Permanent (2) Effect: All your Ninjas get + 1 "Mental Power".

Yet another card to help the ever popular Mental Decks. This card is pretty straightforward, boosting all Ninjas in your Village with +1 "Mental Power". Every Ninja has Mental Power, and if not, then its stated in the Characteristic line, as 0 "Mental Power". Able to bring this out on turn 1, not really sure how it would help out a Deck, even a Mental one, so early in the game. But the lower the cost the better I assume. Overall, a decent card, one that's bound to find its way into Mental Decks, so watch out for it, and it might be a reason to side deck a Hayate Gekko (Detecting a Plan) Ninja.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 2/5
