Now this Sasori is cool. Why? Ambush, no entry requirements, and good stats, that's why!

The effect also gets to you. During your Mission Phase you can discard two Wind Chakras to deploy a Ninja from your discard pile. Remember, it's a "Deployment" and not a "Put In Play" effect, so you probably can't use this effect at the turn this guy's deployed. After that the revived Ninja is removed from play, so it's a bit of a one shot deal for that Ninja. In the right deck, this Sasori can own. Try it and see!


Limited: 3/5

StormVyper Zera Sasori [The Best Toy]

This card is pretty much the best Sasori, and a welcomed addition to Winds Turn 5 slot. When wind of this card's effect got out, people instantly saw his syngery with put in play effects like Naruto [Like Whirlwind] and Temari [Wind Scythe], as well as missions like Substitution. He also feeds Gaara [Tragic Name] ninjas to chuck at your opponent for damage. Fun stuff.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5

 How's it going guys and gals, today we're reviewing

N-542 Sasori[The Best Toy]

Ahhhh Sasori, a great Akatsuki ninja and this one lives up to that title. It has many nicknames in the local hobby leagues, call him "Boy Toy" or "Jesus" however people want to call him he's a good card, let's take a look at him shall we?

He's a turn 5 "Wind" ninja with the "Jonin" attribute, Ambush, Mental Power:3, Puppet Master, Manipulation and the Akatsuki status lets him use a few nifty jutsus, but that's not the point. Right off the bat we see he has solid stats (H:5/3, I:3/3) he's a good support all around and that's what he's meant to be nonetheless.

Now let's look at the strong point of this card which is his effect, by discarding 2 "Wind" Chakras you can deploy(not put in play, so handcosts are met) any ninja from your discard pile... nice! This effect has a LOT of potential, for example, re-using a Third Hokage[APW], a Third Hokage[GLTV], Shino[IW] and the list goes on and on. The down side to this effect is at the end of the turn, the revived ninja is removed from play, in other words, it goes bye bye for good this time. Now how could you abbuse this effect? Easily, platoon or squad the ninja you just revived, now the revived ninja is not considered to "be in play" at the end of the turn therefore you keep the ninja you just squad'gd or platoon'd. A very nasty effect, although not valid, if used correctly and in one of the strongest elements currently in the game.

He has a great effect all around and there's a chance that a deck could be built around him in the near future, who knows what could happen, but potential is here and surely this is easily noted by how expensive he is and the demand for him as well.

Limited: 3/5 (pull off enough wind and he's good to go, not probable that the effect will fire off as it should but you know)
Constructed: 4/5 (a nice card all around, but he's not perfect, valid on him would've gotten a 5)
