Beastly Mage

Kimimaro [Protection with Bones]

Welcome to another week of reviews, Naruto fans. Today's card is Kimimaro [Protection with Bones]. This Kimimaro is different from the first one. Off the bat, he's got one hand cost and he's a turn-5. But, he does have growth and a pretty decent effect. Your opponent targets ANY ninja in Kimimaro's team with a Jutsu, and the Jutsu is applied, the user gets one damage. That could make your opponent think twice about using targeting techniques. He's pretty decent, particularly in constructed (sound deck anyone?).


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

The First Hokage

Kimimaro [Protection with Bones]

We continue to look at Series 8 cards, and today we look at a Rare Kimimaro.
He's not that bad of a card either. His effect allows him to deal 1 damage to a user of a Jutsu card that targets any ninja in his team including himself.
His stats are pretty solid as well boasting 6/3 healthy and 5/2 injured. He's a turn 5 and has a 1 hand cost to see play, and on top of that he also has growth, so he could be a 7/4 and a 6/3 overall. However, Kimimaro fails where it matters most. He does not have the Jonin rank like most of the other turn 5 Water ninjas that see play like Zabuza and Kabuto[CO]. Overall, I don't see him making that huge of an impact to gameplay, however, in Limited, I see him doing well because of his solid stats.

My Ratings:

Constructed: 2.9/5 No Jonin Rank
Limited: 4/5 Solid Stats
Art: 3.75/5
Wyatt This is the rare version of Kimimaro(the only non-SR one), and it is pretty good. Same stats as every other Kimimaro, turn 5, Growth(a nice addition), and a good effect. Every time your opponent 's ninja successfully plays a jutsu card targeting any of the ninjas in Kimimaro's team, including himself, the user of that jutsu card takes 1 damage. This is a decent effect, not quite as powerful as Tsunade(the one who protects the big tree), but it has a wider variety of jutsu that will trigger it, as well as being able to hit ninjas not battling against him. Sadly, this is not a valid effect, so if they hit him, you'll get to do 1 damage, then no protection after that. But it might be a deterent, especially if the jutsu they are using is Suicidal Action. This Kimimaro is good in any Sound 5 deck that can't get the SR Kimis, or would just prefer to play this one, since it has a good effect, growth, and only needs the 1 hand cost. Definately better than the SR Kimi from QFP, and could be argued against the other SR Kimis(not effect-wise, but overall playability).

Constructed:3.5/5[4.5/5](More splashable than the other Kimis, and with a good effect and stats, however, still needs a hand cost and has no rank. Works better in Mono-water or Sound 5 decks, but his lack of rank and State 2 restrict what jutsus he can use.)

Limited:4/5(Great stats, only 1 hand cost, and a nice effect make him a definite pick if you pulled enough other water cards to justify him.)
MeGaMaRiK Welcome to Monday, February 11th's Naruto Card of the Day!

Today the card is Kimimaro [Protection with Bones]. In my opinion, for a rare, he's really not too shabby. He's better than the turn 4 Kimi, and not much worse than the turn 6 Kimi's actually. But the only problem is, he is not valid, which also means if your opponent is smart they will target Kimi with jutsu's first; or just throw something at him with Gaara.

Not bad, but Kidomaru State 2 is better now. Also kind of unusual he ahs Growth. Hmm.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 3/5
