based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
Gaara... What can I say about this version? For
starters he's great in Sand-Oriented decks. This
version allows you to look for one of his signature
Jutsus from the top five cards on the top of your
deck when he's sent out to battle. That's pretty
good in my book. After that, put the card in your
hand (after showing it to your opponent) and shuffle
your deck. Too bad it isn't valid. Still, I'd run it
if I ran a Sand deck.
Constructed: 5/5 (in his own deck)
Art: 5/5 Just because he's got the cool outfit
Alucard of the Abyss
Today we get to the last
card of the week and it's a card that I think has
potential in a deck based around it. Today we get to
Gaara [Immese Power].
As usual, his stats. This time Gaara is a turn 4
with a solid 5/2 stats (zomg, a Gaara with support)
and injured stats of 4/0. He's a Genin still and has
Sand combat attribute like all other Gaara made so
far. His effect is what's interesting. When he's
sent out to battle you can search for a Jutsu card
with "Requirements: Sand Combat Attribute" in the
top 5 cards of your deck and add it to your hand.
The set this came out of also brought us some
awesome new Jutsu that Gaara has as his disposal
being a turn 4. Currently, I don't think a deck
based around Gaara and his Jutsu can make it to top
tier, but if Bandai does the smart thing and take
care of Gaara [Tragic Name] then we may very well
see this Gaara and his deck make an appearance.
Unfortunately, he isn't searchable by The 9th Match
so that limits his playability a little compared to
the turn 2 Gaara and running a lot of Jutsu
dedicated to Gaara means less Jutsu you will have
playable by your regular Ninjas. With these flaws
Gaara decks just don't have what it takes to top a
tournament higher than a Chunin at this time.
For combos there is really just using his Jutsu.
Sand Tsunami is especially nasty as is Sand Tomb.
Giant Sand Burial also has potential but isn't as
good as the first two. There is also using Ninja
Academy to get him out as early as turn 2 but that
also means running Earth in a deck that should be
In Limited you would generally choose him first for
his solid stats. His effect isn't as useful unless
you also pull some of his Jutsu so you will mainly
be using him for his stats.
The art on this card is amazing. It looks really
good in Diamond foil and has one of the best artwork
so far on a Gaara card.
Constructed: 3.5/5 (can't give it any higher rating
as it still lacks what it takes to make it to the
Limited: 4/5 (his stats are good in this format)
Art: 5/5 (great card art)
Welcome to Friday,
February 8th's Naruto Card of the Day!
Today's card is Gaara of the Desert [Immense Power].
This guy has a strong effect, just like almost all
the other Gaaras. However, he's turn 4, unlike his
other counterparts. His effect is strictly for Gaara
decks only, searching the top 5 cards for one of his
jutsu. Now if you do the math, you will most likely
find at least 1 of those jutsu in the top 5. 5/2
healthy and 4/0 injured stats; not too shabby.
Short and sweet today, however this Gaara is only
good in his deck, not in any wind deck.
Gaara of the
Desert(Immense Power). We review today one of the
new turn 4 Gaaras, and this one just might prove
useful in a Sand deck. He is now a turn 4 ninja with
5/2,4/0 stats. Not bad for a turn 4, although he is
still Genin, which hurts in most respects, since he
cannot play any of the big rank jutsus. This is made
up for somewhat by the release of several Sand
jutsus that require sand combat attribute + an
entrance cost of 4 or more, although he can't use
the ones that require an entrance cost of 5 or
more(only Possessed mode and Shukaku can use those),
these new ones are actually quite good. Add to that
the fact that this version searches the top 5 cards
of your deck for a Sand combat attribute jutsu when
he is sent out to battle. These new Gaaras are
powerful, but don't quite fit into decks not focused
around them(Sand, or Genin rush[Naruto Vs. Sasuke
Constructed:3/5(Still a genin, and an effect that
basically requires the deck to be based around him,
in a Sand deck, 4.5/5)
Limited:3.5/5(Good stats, and plenty of jutsus for
him in this set make him a decent choice here, but
not a first pick)
Gaaara of the Desert
YYYYYAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite
Ninja!....... Has been killed.
You see, the first
thing you may notice is how the new Gaara is not
On turn two, he had
4/0. This was awesome. This was godly. I usually am
still using him by the end of the game. However, a
5/2 on turn four is AVERAGE. AVERAGE, I SAY!
AVERAGE!!!!!!!!!! Would Gaara, the host of Shukaku,
the One-Tailed Beast, be AVERAGE!!!!??????
1/5 For ALL new Gaara
cards, and also because they come out two turns
later. WHICH ES MUY MALO!
And the picture sucks!
Who CARES what the effect is!? It's bad, too!
