Matthew Low Wednesday 6/31 - Kidomaru [Elite of the Sound]

So unless you're playing those silly Gate missions, it's going to be T3 through T6 dropping the Sound 4 guys before you can use Kidomaru's effect. How about no. How about running actual good cards like Second, Zabuza, and Kisame with Ghost Panic, instead of mid-range guys with next to no upside. If I wanted Kidomaru, I'd run a good one with an effect I can actually use.

Constructed: 1.1 out of 5.0 (No.)
Limited: 2.5 out of 5.0 (At least he's a 4/2 2/2 with Ambush.)

N-535 Kidomaru-Elite of the Sound

Yeah, this makes tons of sense...puppets and Kidomaru...

This Kido has all the same stats you remember from Kido the last time we saw him, so no need to look over that. His new effect is that while you have all the sound 4 in play (or can fake it with missions*Wink*) you can flip a coin twice during your mission phase. If it's heads twice, you win a battle reward. That's a really good effect, but it's not Valid, just like every other ability so far. The best of the new sound 4 abilities, but being the best out of a pile of sad still doesn't make it good. Stay away from Kido in stage 1, as the only good Kido is in stage 2, who actually sees play some of the time.

Constructed:1/5 Yeah, it's not seeing play.
Limited:1/5 Seeing even less play, but can't go below one. And this card's "No way FR Limited is possible" rating is Tobi is a Good Boy/5
Art:1/5 Naw, he's a horrible spider man, and he makes me sad.
StormVyper Zera Kidomaru [Elite of the Sound]

Ok, Kidomaru's have got an uphill battle, because [How to Beat the Game] dishing out free Damage based solely on the flip of one coin is a pretty powerful effect to go against. Naturally, this card is nowhere near as consistent or potentially game changing as his State 2 counterpart. Not only is assembling and maintaining a field of all 4 Sound Four Ninja an immensely difficult task (trust me, I've tried it), but his effect delivers no real guarantee that you'll ever get a payoff from him with any sort of consistency. Flipping a coin is pretty meh, but flipping two coins means I better be getting something damn good if I connect with both coin flips. Sadly, all you get is 1 Battle Reward. Lame~ The amount of work it takes for this guys effect to even come online, coupled with the low chance of you ever cashing in on it makes this a pretty bad card. Maybe if he only needed one coin flip or got a bigger payout for succeeding, he'd get a better rating from me.

Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 1/5

Kidomaru N-535

  Another print of the long gone sound four member, Kidomaru. He's a turn 3 with no state on its characteristics, his same stats and he's got ambush which is honestly the only positive of this copy of him.

  His effect requires four ninjas to be in play and the ace two coin flips. Unless the effect reads "you win the game" it's just no lol. There are better copies of him out there, MUCH better.

Limited: 2/5 (He's not bad here due to stats and ambush)
Constructed: 1/5 (Yea right)

Art: Supersonic spider arms!?/5
