Beastly Mage

Anko Mitarashi

Today's card is a new version of Anko. She's got the usual stats for her. The effect is OK, I guess. When she attacks she can only be blocked by teams composed of 2 Ninjas or less during the turn. That means she's safe from really big teams (like Sasori and like a gajillion other puppet-coin Ninjas >.<).

Other than that she's a decent turn 3 drop. Try it and see.

2008 Stone
Village Kage
Anko Mitarashi

Fun card here! This is actually a pretty new effect that we’ve never seen before. When Anko attacks, she can only be blocked by a team of 2 or less ninja. The nice thing is, she can sit in any deck effectively. Of course, where she is gonna do the most damage is tempo, and most likely a bit of OC/Tailed Beast decks. Drop her behind your invincible Naruto and swing. Because of how your opponent would have to organize their ninja, it would be hard for them to overwhelm Naruto, which is really the only way to deal with him. Puppets however can get around her effect by blocking with a puppet user, then swinging the puppets into their team. Anything else though, will have issues with her.

Matthew Low Thursday 4/9 - Anko Mitarashi [Chase] - Lightning - Ninja

Today's Anko is interesting, and seems from the outside to be an option for Tempo. At first glance that is. It's like she has a reverse Kiba [Leading Scout] effect; can't be be blocked by a team of 3 (or more in rare cases), though she does not need to be the head ninja. This makes her more or less useless in the early game, and situational in the late game. Likely your opponent won't have all teams of three with some chump blocker somewhere, so her effect just stops your opponent's huge teams from blocking her. That isn't a bad thing, but if running into chump blockers isn't your thing, then you will be hard pressed to find a scenario for her.

She has solid stats for a head Ninja and keeps the 4 Power, but personally I'd go with Blocking the Ambition for the utility uses it has.

Constructed: 2.1 out of 5.0 (Better Anko in Blocking the Ambition.)
Limited: 4.5 out of 5.0 (Her effect can have use in sealed with solid stats.)
Mark Howard Anko [Chase]

Today, we get a new Anko. I remember way back then, when people complained that we needed a new one, and now we're getting another Anko next set. Is she good? Let's see.

She's good.

In a nutshell, you can't block Anko with a full team. She's a great Puppet counter (maybe), she has cool stats (4 combat in both stats means the opponent will be reluctant to damage her, and minimizes the damage of losing her effect), Proctor, Special Jonin, and [1] Mental. She's a simple card, and there's no way to go into detail with her effect other than it's pretty good late-game and mid-game, and with the right support, can be deadly.

Art: Eew.
Fun Fact: Elephant laxatives.
