Kabuto Yakushi

Today's card is an interesting one for Water. This version of Kabuto allows you to bring back a Ninja from your Discard pile by Charging (as in, sending one card from your hand to the Chakra Area) a card with a Water symbol during your Mission Phase. This guy is pretty good, since he doesn't have Hand Cost and even has Ambush. Problem is that the effect specifies that bringing back the Ninja (during the Mission Phase) counts as a Deployment. Still, the effect doesn't specify turn cost, rank, or anything like that. So all Ninjas would be fair game for this guy. Fitting effect, I say.

08/26/10 N-828 Kabuto Yakushi [Recycling]

Today's card is a very neat Kabuto. This version of Orochimaru's favorite lackey is a T4 ninja instead of his usual T5 self (T5 for Jonin at least). For his drop, he has nice support and decent combat while healthy, but he isn't to good injured. He has Jonin and Ambush which are two critical keywords if you are a water player. He also has Medical and Medicine CA which makes him splashable in a Medical deck since he has no hand cost. Now let's examine his effect.

During your mission phase, you can deploy ninjas from your discard pile by charging a water card from your hand. Since it says "deploy", entrance and hand cost must be met and it counts as your one ninja per turn. This can allow your to replay some of your ninjas that might have been killed off. This can frustrate opponent's who spent all of their resources killing a specific ninja, only to have them re-deployed the net turn.

The only downside to this card is its name. Most water players will be running a pair of Kabuto [Database]. This will only lave one slot open for this guy or the new Kabuto from set 18, which is also very good himself. Of course, you can run one of each, but the two [DB]'s will be the more popular choice. Try out the different options and see what works for you.

Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 3.75/5
Block: 4/5
