Kiba Inuzuka and Akamaru [Outstanding Sense of Smell]

Another platoon?! This one could fit well in Animal decks. When they're sent out to battle, reveal the top card in your deck to your opponent. If it's a Ninja, move it to your hand and move one card in your hand to the bottom of your deck. No ninja? Just move it back to the top of your deck. Thing is: would you want to show your opponent your next draw? Kinda risky, I say.

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 2/5
Art: 5/5 (just because I like the Inuzukas)

Kiba Inuzuka & Akamaru [Oustanding Sense of Smell]

This is the second Kiba/Akamaru platoon released and shows less competitive potential than the first. The stats are the same as the other Kiba/Akamaru platoon released in Quest For Power, which if you think you actually have a need for a Kiba/Akamaru platoon is the one you would choose. The effect of [Oustanding Sense of Smell] is not optional, and the chance of losing important cards is just about as likely as finding something decent. Stat wise it's below average. I'd rather just have a second Kiba to growth in.

In a Constructed tournament, if you're playing Kiba enough to warrant a platoon you're better off playing the Double Headed Wolf ninja that has great stats and is a turn 3.

In Limited tournaments this is more or less a dead card. There was a single Kiba card from the BoD set, so the chances of playing this Platoon are low.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Limited: 1/5

Wyatt Kiba Inuzuka and Akamaru. Once again, another dissapointing Kiba+Akamaru platoon. It has some things going for it, ninja dog, animal, and an okay effect. But this card seems to be only useful in Kiba/Akamaru based decks, or Ninja dog/Animal mill decks. The stats are meh for a platoon, and the effect only happens when he is sent out to battle, and even then it might only give you a glimpse at the top card of your deck. Don't get me wrong, possibly drawing another card(especially a ninja) is good, but it just doesn't seem like the best way to get it. It just doesn't feel worth it to me.

Constructed:2.5/5(3.5/5 in animal/Kiba decks.)
Limited:2/5(1 Kiba and no akamarus in this set make it hard to actually play, but the effect might come in handy here.)
