3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.


Gamabunta [Confrontation After a Long Separation]

An alternative to the other Gamabunta; the main differences being that this one has a 2 higher cost and you must have Jiraiya in play, but the other one must be summoned with Summoning Jutsu.

Since there are no slugs or snakes with an entrance cost less than him, and you need Jiraiya, who is at least 5 entrance cost, the second effect doesn't really come into effect.

A less situational Gamabunta for the Jiraiya deck.

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5


Thursday's card is the new and in my opinion slightly better Gamabunta. He's a 9/1 healthy and 7/0 injured, comes out on turn 7 after you summon Jiraiya, an unfortunately you can't play him unless Jiraiya is in play as opposed to summoning him via Summoning Jutsu, the former a slightly better back bite as you can play him now with Summoning Jutsu or normally as long as Jiraiya is in play. The best part of him is if your opponent runs Manba or Katsuya and has one of those in play, you can play Gamabunta without worrying about entrance cost. Gamabunta is typically played in a Ninja Toad deck, but otherwise, he's a big use of space. To use him, you need Jiraiya and if you aren't playing Lightning as one of you main elements, don't bother using Gamabunta.

Limited: 2/5(the Ninja toad deck would be hard to pull off but is doable)
Constructed: 3/5(Ninja Toads 2.0 would be a pretty decent deck, I think)

Beastly Mage

Gamabunta (n220)

Hey there, Pojo-ers. Today's card is the newest version of Gamabunta. This version has two effects. Like both Manda and Katsuyu, it can only come out when its original summoner is out on the field. But, when you or your opponent has either a Slug or a Snake, his entrance cost becomes 0, coming out a bit faster in certain occasions, but still a bit situational. At least it doesn't necessarily need Summoning Jutsu to come out. It's a good card, but a bit hard to use unless you run a full Ninja Toad deck with Jiraiya.


Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: 3/5


Today we get to look at Gamabunta, or as he is known in my bedroom, Master Pimp. Gamabunta is a frog, but not an ordinary frog. A really F**KING big frog. On top of that, he smokes a pipe. Now if that’s not cool, I don’t know what is. But enough of that, let us go below the surface. Though Gamabunta is huge and tough looking on the outside, on the inside he is just a lonely frog looking for friendship, but he doesn’t know how to be nice and scares away all potential friendships because of it. But I… no We, we can change him. I willl show you my true feelings Gamabunta. I’ll make a deck around you, how bout, say, fire lightning. I’ll run three cornered dead lock and summon you into play the same turn I play Jiraiya. I know it’s not the most consistent combo, but I love you and since you and your buddies are all leaf, I can run The One Who… for draw power. Then, once you’re in play, I’ll shower you with gifts like Toad Flame Bombs. Isn’t it every little Toad’s dream to deal 2 damage to each member of the opposing team. That’s just like an insane Vortex. I know it sounds inconsistent and it probably is, but Gamabunta, I love you, and I will find a way to make it work <3.

Limited: 1/5 (Hard to get the right cards)
Constructed: 3/5 (Big but inconsistent)
Art: 5/5 (…I wonder if he has Lung Cancer)
