Burst of Power

This is one mission that is a bit... "MEH!"

Taijutsu/Surge decks are stating, but I don't see this card being that useful at this moment. It works when you Surge a Ninja. Once that Ninja is surged you draw a card. Pretty easy, right? Problem is that this only happens if ALL of your Ninjas are Taijutsu Ninjas. So, unless you have few Ninjas out and it happens that all of them are Taijutsu, I don't think this card is worth the space at the moment.


Limited: 1/5
Constructed: 2/5
Block: 2/5
Art: Emo Break-Dance.../5


Burst of Power
Lightning are in great need of drawing. Limited in draw power, Burst of Power doesn't work for any deck type except Taijutsu. Even then, it also requires Surge. When I say require...well let's look at the effect.
"Effect: When 1 of your "taijutsu" ninjas is surged, if all of your ninjas are "taijutsu" ninjas, draw 1 card"
Step one, surge a ninja
Step two, all ninjas on your side need to have taijutsu as an attribute
In a taijutsu deck, is this card really gonna help?  Let's take a look at the ninjas that can surged and are of Taijutsu attribute
n649 Gitai (turn 1)
n913 Rock Lee (turn 0)
n915 Might Guy (turn 5)
n963 Sasuke Uchiha (turn0)
n969 Might Guy (turn 5)
n971 Naruto Uzumaki (taijutsu) (turn 0)
To play burst of power, we need one of these cards to get surged.  It's likely to use the effect between the gap but this card is a turn 2 mission... okay turn 2 to turn 5, it's usable.  Gitai is great, Rock Lee isn't bad, Sasuke is good, Might Guy is great, Naruto is not so bad either but that's it. Assuming we run 3 of each card, it's a surge ninja card so it's justified to run 3, we have 15 ninjas cards that can get past step 1. It's not a bad card for a focused taijutsu deck.  It doesn't even have a hand cost, nice.
Block: 3.5/5
no hand cost tho needs a surge ninja, still, it's not hard to pull off
unlimited: 1/5
rare for a player to use taijutsu in unlimited..

Burst of Power M-708:
This card is GREAT for strictly-Taijutsu decks that plan to use Surge. This card works great with Rock Lee N-913 from Set 18, in that you can discard ANY Taijutsu ninja in your hand to +2/+2 and draw a card. Additionally, if you have the Set 19's Might Guy N-969 in play, you can draw as many times as you have ninjas to discard with Rock Lee's effect. Also, for the deck, there is Set 19's Sasuke Uchiha N-963, Set 19's Naruto Uzumaki (Taijutsu) N-971, and Set 15's Gitai N-649.
Constructed - 2/5
(I'm not sure how playable Taijutsu-Surge is in Unlimited, but personally, I wouldn't see it going anywhere in that format)
Limited - 1/5
(This card is horrible unless you have the right deck built around it, which is basically impossible in Limited)
Block - 3.5/5
(If you can draw this and Rock Lee N-913, you basically have an extra card every turn, helping you draw the Taijutsu OTK)
