Homura Mitomon (n-199)
OK, first of all, why would they make a Ninja like
this?! No combat, no support, only increases stats
by one combat point... What the heck?! 0.o Two
Mental points can be good, but still, this guy will
get pwn3d instantly!
1/5 all around
Thursday's card is Homura
Mitomon and I'm not particularly thrilled by this
one. For waiting until Turn 5 and giving up a card
you get a 0/0 ninja who gives all your Leaf Ninjas
+1/+0. That really only helps the Head ninja and the
fact that he has no stats means he'll be staying at
home most of the time. We have better: Izumo and
Kotetsu, Spectator, both of which give Ninjas +1/+0
for a discard while remaining in the Village and can
do it more than once. Homura's is a permanent bonus,
but the restriction on the Ninjas it gives the bonus
to and the fact you can only have one Ninja with the
same name in your village at a time means he doesn't
really do much for you. Hokage Rocks basically does
the same thing yet can be used in multiples of 3,
which is significant. He may be useful to you, but
his stats are what really kill him.
Limited: 2/5(you really want a ninja with better
stats more than the power-up).
Constructed: 2/5(Earth's staple of ninja at Turn 5
isn't much better than him).
Today we look at Homura Mitomon, the
senior adviser, and let me stress senior (as in
Senior Citzen). Homura is a confused old man
wrapped up in the complex politics and hierarchal
system of the leaf village, so why does he get his
own card. I mean, come on, I could kick this guy’s
ass, with his nerdy green glasses and shawl.
Besides having god awful stats, he has a crappy
effect not worth the cardboard it’s printed on.
Who’s going to waste a ninja slot on this guy, if
you want strong leaf ninja teams, run Hokage Rocks,
but not this crap bag.
His effect only targets
the head ninja and only if it’s a leaf ninja, so
that’s one ninja per team an on turn 5 you probably
have 2 strong teams, so that’s plus one to each.
You may think that’s a good thing, but not when you
could drop a Jiraiya and add 5 (soon to be 7) onto a
team or a Kakashi. This guy is a waste of a card
who will see no play, at all, and come on Bandai,
could you at least make it a little less obvious
that you hate earth so freaking much.
Limited: 1/5 (sucky, sucky)
Constructed: 1/5 (probably even
worse than limited)
Art: 1/5 (why does he even try to
look serious, he’s just going to get his ass
kicked. Maybe he has Alzheimer’s and forgot he was
