Beastly Mage

Yoroi Akado

Greetings, Naruto fans. Sorry for reviewing late. I've had my hands full... >.<

Today's card is Yoroi, the Chakra-Stealing Sound Ninja. When he attacks you pick one of your opponent's Ninjas. During your turn, when that Ninja goes out to block, you can discard up to two Chakras from your opponent's Chakra Area. When that Ninja (if it's still there) goes out to attack the next turn, you can discard up to two more! Pretty sweet if you ask me. Chakra control just got a boost from this card. I limited, he could be a killer too. Try it and see!


Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 3/5

Matthew Low Tuesday 8/4 - Yoroi Akado [Unique Talent] - Water - Ninja

The other Sound Ninja sent to test Sasuke has had playable forms in the past, and this one, IMO, creeps the other one. While personally I like guaranteed effects like the old one from Curse of the San has, this one has an effect that can potentially be much better (up to 4x), AND he has +1 Support (at the small cost of losing 1 injured Combat... which will rarely matter as he'll be a chumper). The Support pushes him over the edge.

Yoroi is simple; send him out, and choose the most likely Ninja to block, whether it is the big team or the chumper. Choose the big team and you can hose four chakra, which sometimes is enough to completely change a situation (I'm looking at you, Gaara [Immense Power]). Character specific decks with one guy to fuel the jutsus will likely have lots of problems with Yoroi.

I can see him played in 2s in lots of decks, even some that aren't Water. He also can be a great tech option as a "replacement" for Neji [Detection by Byakugan], but that's just a random thought. Sideboard? Maybe.

Constructed: 4.6 out of 5.0 (Good stats with great effect and sideboard application. What's not to like?)
Limited: 4.5 out of 5.0 (3/2 T2s are some good I hear.)

N. Jolly
N-630 Yoroi Akado: Unique Talent

A retraction: On yesterday's card, I stated that Misumi would be known for not beating Sasuke...I'm pretty sure I was talking about today's card, Yoroi, but to be fair Misumi did not beat Sasuke, he's just not well known for it. Perhaps on my new Sasuke review I will give a list of people who are famous for it...N. Jolly is one...

Today's card is Yoroi Akado, one of the few villians to be in both the main series and filler, and his card today is pretty cool. His stats are now 3/2 0/1 which is pretty good for a T2 ninja. Just like Misumi, he's only Sound and Male, so there's not a lot there other than he can be Temptation of Power'd out, which isn't going to happen to this guy.

His effect is actually pretty interesting as well as being better for late game than early. When Yoroi is sent out to battle, pick on of your opponent's ninja. For this turn and the next, if the chose ninja goes out to block, you can discard up to two of their chakra...that's pretty nice! So if they only have one team when you swing in, they have to either block and lose chakra or let it go through, still knowing that you can't send out next turn or else you'll lose more. Two chakra is a lot at any point in the game, making this probably the best ninja for killing chakra consistently. He's really good, but Water has so many good ninjas this set it'll be hard for him to see play.

Constructed:3.75/5 Very good card
Limited:4/5 Good stats, good ability, good for limited

What a beating. Swing with this guy, pick your opponent's best ninja, and they'll be thinking twice whether or not they want to have him engage you or not. If that ninja leaves the Village, Yoroi instantly burns 2 chakra (effectively cutting the amount of jutsu your opponent can play that turn). What's worse, this guy has no restrictions on who he can target and his stats are fantastic. His 2 Support allows him to be used for the rest of the game, without your overall teampower suffering. Anyone who has used the first Yoroi should know exactly what I mean.

Limited: 5/5 (Card is phenomenal here. Nice stats, killer effect, and solid jutsu to play.)
Constructed: 4/5 (He's got a little bit of competition, but I expect to see him around.)
