Instant Killing

Hmm... the biggest Asumas we have at the moment are, I believe, entrance cost 4 or 5, yes? I don't think I like this jutsu much. For starters, it requires a specific ninja and 3 chakra, and the effect doesn't justify that. Second, jutsus are typically for use against things bigger than you that you can't beat through battle normally. This could come in handy if you send out an injured Asuma to beat a team of smaller ninja with annoying effects, but still, situational and expensive = bad.

Limited: 1/5 The only Asuma is Asuma & Kurenai, and there aren't any Kurenai either.
Constructed: 2.2/5

Beastly Mage

Instant Killing

This is one of Asuma's signature techniques. One Earth + Two random = Pwnag3 to the team... as long as the team is composed of ninjas with a lower entrance cost than Asuma that is. This can work great against Genin Rush Decks and Sound Decks as well. Not much else to say.


Limited: No Asuma/5
Constructed: 4/5
Art: Ouch!/5

Today's review is short and to the point. It has a kind of expensive chakra cost. It has a specific requirement, both for the user and the target. And the effect is not that superb. It could be use full on genin rush, but when elsewhere? If you run three Asuma's ( and most earth decks do) if might be worth putting in your deck. That is pretty bad, and earth is the weakest element.

My ratings:

Constructed: 3
Limited: 2

Now now, I'm playing Path of the Ninja. Sakura, Shikamaru, and Neji suck like hell. All I can do do is grind for some more levels and BAM! Anbu ops keep using their Instant Killing Jutsu. Dammmnnnn.........

It's also today's card.

Bam bam.
Bam bam bam bam bam bam bam.

Expensive, but nice. Bams all 3 and under Ninjas. Shagawabam-O.

The First Hokage


Instant Killing

It costs 1 earth and 2 random chakra. It also requires Asuma Sarutobi to use the jutsu. It's an Earth Jutsu, so it's fine. The effect is also decent, but I am not sure if I would run it since only a specific character can use the Jutsu. The effect says all ninja's lower than Asuma will either get injured or die that are battling against him. This card is only an uncommon to boot. I don't think it will see play. In limited, it won't get too far either because the odds of getting Asuma and this card are slim to none...

My ratings:

Constructed: 2.5.5

Limited: 1/5
