Beastly Mage

Kiba Inuzuka

[Strong Bonds] is one card I trully like. OK, so I'm a bit partial to the "House of Dogs" (Inuzka) Clan, and this version of Kiba fits well into Animal decks. First of all, he's got the "Animal" Characteristic, plus growth AND a cool effect. When he's injured you can heal him if Akamaru is in his team (but Akamaru has to be healthy). Aside from the situation, this Ninja is pretty solid for Mill/Animal decks. He's a new Starter deck exclusive too.


Limited: Starter/5
Constructed: 4/5 (Animal deck)
Art: Man, I wish I had a coat like that!/5

2008 Sand
Village Kage
Kiba Inuzuka [Strong Bonds]

Todayʼs COTD is a preview card from the upcoming Sasuke starter deck. I like the new template for the cards. Itʼs a treat for our eyes after 10 sets of the same template over and over again.

So this Kiba auto-heals if Akamaru is in the same team as him. Very nice effect. If you get the two ninjas out by turn 1, you have some good blockers to keep you alive till you drop your Sasuke [OC], Kakashi, and Itachi or 3rd Hokage. Will it replace Kiba [Man Beast Clone]? My guess is probably not. The problem with this Kiba is that if you donʼt have Akamaru in your hand, then you have a weak ninja in your hand with stats 2/0 healthy and 0/0 injured that has no beneficial effect. Probability-wise, if you were to run a deck with 3 Kibas and 2 Akamarus, you might have both in your hand on turn 1 less than 40% of the time (not taking into consideration Sakura [ADP] or Drifting Clouds).

But a potential combo regarding this card would be the Futaba draw engine. Run some Kibas, Akamarus, and Hinata [Ointment] comboed with Drifting Clouds and Futaba and you have yourself a semi-consistent draw engine. Itʼs cool that we have this new Kiba, but the fact that you need to combo this with another specific card drives down the playability of this card (especially with the card limit going to 50).

Rating: 2.5/5
meemas alright, todays card is kiba, lets look at him now...
he has the standard kiba stats and attribute thingys including growth...now lets look at his effect, if he is injured but there is an akamaru in his team that is healthy at the end of your turn you can heal him...now looking at it right away you see simple things such as he heals himself if he loses a battle, however he also combos well with suicidal action which could lead to a lot of abuse. all in all a really nice card for a turn 0

limited:3/5 only if you pull akamaru, otherwise he has no effect

The First Hokage
Kiba[Strong Bonds]

Today we are reviewing a starter exclusive Kiba which is going to be coming out in the upcoming Approaching Wind starters and he also has a new card template which is very cool.

He’s the same Kiba you’ve known, 2/0 Growth, Genin, Male, and Animal. His effect allows you to heal if you have an Akamaru in healthy status in the same team at the end of the turn. I prefer using the old Kiba that searches for Akamaru. This one has some potential, but I still think the old one is a lot better,

Constructed: 2.8/5
Limited: 4/5
Art: 4/5 Template is nice
Kiba [Strong Bonds]- Good Card For stalling when youre up against a powerful team or ninja. This card wiill be at 4 power when Akamaru [Reliable Partner] is in its team. And you just wait till turn 3 and bring out Double Headed wolf and go crazy. Good Card for mill.

Limited- Starter deck
Constructed- 2.5/5
Art- Gotta love the new card backgrounds. 5/5
