Kabuto Yakushi


Today's card is one that truly belongs in Orochimaru Decks. This version of Kabuto prevents Orochimaru from receiving any damage during the showdown. That's just great! Thing is that the effect is somewhat situational, but it's still good.On top of that he's got the stats to back his effect up (such as Jonin and Medical). This guy combined with Orochimaru [Master of Every Jutsu] would make a killer team on their own.




Limited: 2/5

Constructed: 3/5

Art: Don't anger the Medic!/5

Nus-073 Kabuto Yakushi


For the final review this week, we go out on a low note with Michael Jack…err..Orochimaru’s little peon. Personally, I’m not a big fan of water cards, especially not Kabuto. Did water really need any more 5 drops? No way. It’s clogged to the brim with two better Kabuto, two Zabuza, Kisame, Tayuya, and Kidomaru. Lets see, there is something good about this…oh yeah, pay the hand cost for him on turn 5, then the hand cost for Orochimaru on turn 6 and you have an infinite chump block team…unless it’s outstanding. Yeah, in constructed play, this card is trash. Have to say, I like the art though, he’s pretty evil looking in that pose.


Constructed: 1/5 (Water has much better to offer.)

Limited: 2/5

Art: 3/5

Kabuto Yakushi [Orochimaruʼs Right Hand]

Ending the week with Kabuto, a turn 5 Water ninja with very mediocre stats. The effect is why anyone would think about running him. Pulling off the combo of him and Orochimaru is fine and dandy but itʼs not worth building a deck around them. Orochimaru will still be vulnerable to jutsus. Kabutoʼs effect isnʼt valid either. Definitely try something else.

Rating: 2/5
