Today's card is a new version of Kurenai. Same
basic stats (as a no-hand cost Kurenai). The effect
is a good one. During the Battle Phase, your Ninjas
are protected from your the effects of your
opponent's Ninjas. That means that, for example,
Sasuke [CH] won't do anything to them. She's good
for any deck that can find space for her,
particularly Kunoichi decks. She's also good in
Limited, where Ninjas with no hand cost are a must.
Try it and see!
Art: Another order of fries?/5
Today's card is the newest version of Kurenai,
and a very good one at that. Kurenai returns with
her usual 4/3 2/3 stats, Jonin, and Genjutsu CA,
plus she's a Female which is good, but her main draw
is her effect. She can protect your ninjas from
cards like Sasuke Uchiha [CH], The Fourth Hokage
[SN], Baki [AB], and other annoying ninjas that can
do heavy damage to your teams.
Her effect is very good in any wind deck and it's
quite splashable as well for the side deck. It's
been awhile since we've had a Kurenai, but this one
makes up for the wait.
Limited: 3/5 No hand cost, decent stats, and good
Art: I always laugh whenever I see this card for
some reason. I know I'm a bad person.
[Waiting for Someone's Return]
Man, she looks so sad. Understandably so...the
father of her child is dead...poor Asuma.
Anyway, I do like this Kurenai for sideboard
material. She has usual Kurenai stats and
characteristics, and is unfortunately not valid.
She's good to swap in when your opponent is running
an ninja effect heavy deck. Her effect covers from
the beginning of the battle phase until the start of
the showdown. (So she stops Gaara.) Thing is, there
are just so many other better turn 4 ninja; no one
will have the room for poor lonely Kurenai. If you
are running females, you'd run big sister, and in
Genjutsu you'd run the Genjutsu -1/-1 version that's
being reprinted in the Chibi packs.
Limited: 4/5 Always nice to have a 3 support.
Block: 2.5/5. Sideboard material at best. (If you
even have the space and are THAT worried about ninja
Unlimited: 2.5/5. Same as above.
