the anime &
based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 = average.
5 is the highest rating.
the Tailed Beasts
This is one card that truly shines in the
Water/Chakra Control Deck. Think about it: you're
getting rid of three of your opponent's Chakras,
then you gain three, plus this mission and the hand
cost, making the whole thing go for 5...
And it's a common!!!
It's not really broken, since there are ways to
negate missions (cough, Hayate, cough) but it could
be good in limited, and even better in constructed.
Try it and see.

Friday 4/16 - Threat of the Tailed Beasts - Mission
So we're looking at +5 chakra due to hand cost and
the actual card, and -3 for your opponent. A plan
The problem with this card is that it does
absolutely nothing if your opponent has no chakra.
And if you have no discard pile then you don't get
anything back, which in Water what exactly is going
to make you a discard pile?
Can it be good? Yes, in those rare situations where
you can take away your all your opponent's OC chakra
and swing in, and you have Vortex chakra with some
to spare. Is it worth a slot? No, not really. At
best, I'd sideboard it for those random matchups
where it can work, but on the flip-side I'd probably
lean toward more conventional chakra destruction
like Yoroi and Kisame. That's just my opinion
Constructed: 1.5 out of 5.0 (Great if actually
pulled off. Keyword "actually.")
Limited: 1.0 out of 5.0 (Why?)
Talk about getting swept up in things, water weak
just keeps giving us some great cards. Unstable
Ground, hmmm it's effect looks a lot like a jutsu,
oh I don't know Water Style: Exploding Water
Shock Wave. Yes that's right this mission is
exactly like WSEWSW, only with a few subtle
differences. Since WSEWSW needs a jonin to activate
it essentially can't be used till turn 3 at the
earliest and for more than others turn 4. Unstable
ground is basically no different except no ninja on
the field is needed and it will last for three
turns. As for our second card Threat of the Tailed
Beasts, I feel it's another broken water card. Don't
take this as an insult or as arrogance, it's just
that the card advantage for this card, unless I'm
miscalculating is an overall gain of +4. That is you
discard three cards from your opponent, get back
three cards in your chakra, and only use the card
itself and the discard. In constructed I believe
both of these cards could shine but Unstable Ground
not as much. In Limited the conditions are basically
1) Unstable Ground is
a mission form WSEWSW which I believe is better than
the jutsu, but that's just my opinion.
2) Threat of the Tailed Beast is a card that
screams card advantage.
I'm grading these both together so it's out of 10.
Constructed: 8.5/10 ( 3.5 for UG 5 for Threat of the
Limited: Ditto as above
Art: Unstable Ground: Aftermath of Water Style:
Exploding Water Shock Wave
Gaara looks sad but Shukaku is happy.
Threat of the Tailed Beasts
This card is a COMMON!? THIS CARD IS AWESOME!!!! It
slices an amazing three cards out of your opponent's
Chakra (equal to using Kisame CES), AND give you
three more. So, counting this card itself, your
opponent loses 3 Chakra and you gain 5 Chakra.
I'd have to say that Water players have officially
lost the right to say that they don't get any good
Art: Stupid Zombie Gaara, you ruin everything.
Fun Fact: Egotistical is such a funny word if you
say it out loud.
Threat of the Tailed Beasts
Chakra Burn in the form of a Mission. That's new. On
a good day, this card nets you 5 Chakra while
burning 3 of your opponent's. This is an awesome way
to reload those Ambush Ninja, or just give you
enough Chakra to Vortex a team and Water Dragon any
innocent bystander. Fun times. However, this card is
really redundant and unnecessary IMO. Kisame/Yoroi/Jirobo
burn more than enough Chakra on their own.
Limited - 3/5
Constructed - 1/5 (Water has and is getting much
more potent Missions IMO.)
Artwork - ..They could've totally used the 2-Tails
for this. It is a turtle after all.
