Beastly Mage


Today we see Tenzo, Yamato's other name. This Starter Deck Exclusive has, along with the ANBU Characteristic, the name Yamato. This Ninja is good for Earth since his effect allows him to make an opposing team skip the showdown. By paying to Earth Chakras, Tenzo's team and the opposing team skip the showdown. The effect is good, though something is missing. Notice that he can't use the First Hokage's Jutsus?

That last part makes him lose points in Unlimited format. Still, he's good. Having ANBU, he can be brought back by the latest ANBU Days version of Kakashi. Try it and see!

8/12/10 N-842 Tenzo [Strong Measure]
Today's card is the first version of Yamato using his other alias, Tenzo. Tenzo was his original alias while with Anbu before he joined Team 7 as Kakashi's replacement. History lesson aside, let's go to the review.
Tenzo is a turn earlier than his other incarnations with no hand cost, and only has a small drop in stats. He has the usual Yamato characteristics, most importantly, Tree CA which gives him access to Earth's deadliest jutsus. He has Anbu, which makes him a target for Dispatch/Raid of Anbu which is great for those decks, but his effect only really helps earth. By discarding two Earth Chakra, the Showdown is skipped for all teams. This can prevent your opponent from winning any BRs and your teams from being defeated or completely defeated. A nice effect, but he has one bad downside; you can't play Yamato [CBF] while he's out. You can still run both of course, but there will be a possibility that you might raw [CBF] or this guy while the other is out and screw yourself.
Limited: Starter/5
Constructed: 2.5/5
Block: 2.75/5
