West Gate, North Gate

Today's preview card is one that is sure to please at least the Tayuya fans out there (since she is, in fact, one of the most used of the Sound 4). This card makes it so it's like Tayuya and Sakon are both on your village, but you can still put them in play. When the Four Sound Ninja are in your village they all get +1/+1. That's pretty good, though it'll only see play in Sound Decks. If you run that type of deck, give it a try.

West Gate, North Gate


I don't even know where to begin with this. Bandai better bring us some SERIOUS sound 4 support to make this card worth it. Otherwise, it's going to be pretty worthless. Yay, a pump for the sound 4...

Like I said, we will need something serious with "When you have all four sound ninja in play..." effects that will make this worth it. Um, lets hope for better on Thursday...

Limited: Dunno if there are Sound 4 in the packs yet.
Constructed: Leaving that alone for now...(Hopefully)
The Poo Toucher Today we have an interesting preview West Gate, North Gate from A New Chronicle (Set 12)

West Gate, North Gate (West/North) is a turn 1 permanent mission that is considered to be Sakon and Tayuya on the table (and you can still have them on the table) and while you have 4 of the sound ninja 4 on the board each one get's a +1/+1.

This card intrigues me greatly in the Kimimaro OC deck. I've seen the deck run things like Four Flames Formation from Revenge and Rebirth (set 4) that require on of the sound 4, but gets insanely better if you manage to have all 4. Now I think we can all agree that Sakon is just the lamer of the group, so runing it is not the best idea. Giving your Four Flames the secondary ability to be used and re-used again is a very good thing, and this card gives you 2 of those ninja is not a bad thing.

The second part is what's really making me think, droping this, Jirobo Meal from Battle of Destiny (set 8) and Kidomaru How to Beat the Game from Battle of Destiny (set 8) gives all of your Sound ninja 4 +1/+1 making Jirobo a 7/1, Kidomaru a 6/4, and if you droped Tayuya a 4/4. Sound Decks tend to be really flexible in its mission space so a 1 of this isn't going to be hard to squeeze in.

There's a lot circling around this card as it needs 4 different ninjas to work, but with this and yesterday we may be seeing a boost in Sound 5.

Overall we're going to have to see, but I like it.

Constructed: 2 out of 5.
Limited: N/A out of 5. no info
Art: 1 out of 5. Gross

Sorry all for getting the whole mission mix up...:P

But now, we have a weird new pump mission for S4 decks that also lies about Tayuya and Sakon being on the field. Now this mission would be great if it didn't have a hand cost, but it does, so sadness. But the only thing that makes this card good other than the baby pump to S4 is the fact that it helps you get off the second effect of Four Flames Formation. Oh, that and the fact that S4 decks don't run Sakon, as he has no good form.

Constructed:2/5 Not good.
Art:2/5 Tayuya, Sakon and Orochimaru doing nothing of interest...
