Weapons of War

Today's card is a Mission that could be called "Reset Button". At T5 this card can be a late-game table turner. You get to shuffle your hand, your Discard Pile, and your Chakra Area (all cards in those areas) into your Deck and then draw six cards. Now, the thing is that this applies to both players. But, just in case you're thinking of abusing this effect, the last part states that this Mission is removed from play right after the six card draw.

The effect is very balanced, and works good when facing Mill decks. It also helps if you have a bit too much draw power and/or you tend to thin out your deck a bit too much. Even with all that shuffling in, it doesn't help you recover Battle Rewards, removed cards, or whatever is out in play.

It's an Earth Mission, but I think there's gonna be at least a couple of decks that will show up with this card other than Earth/Earth Hybrid Decks. It could even work in Limited, and it's good in other formats too. Try it and see!

M-791 Weapons of War

Today's card shares the same name of the set, but strangely, the art has nothing to do with it... The set's name comes from the description of the Jinchuruki: "Weapons of War", not literal weapons, but I digress. The card is interesting and is reminiscent to the set 1 mission, "A Kind Teacher". The difference is that Weapons of War returns just about everything to their owner's deck, except battle rewards and cards removed from the game as well as giving both players a new hand. Obviously, this card helps against the ever rampant mill decks, albeit at turn 5; mill can easily win before you can play this card.

Similarly to Suigetsu's Joy, Weapons of War can mess up your opponent's game plan by ridding them of their hand, however, it could help them more considering you are giving them a full hand. All around, this card is interesting, but not too great.

Limited: 1/5 Not that great
Unlimited: 1.5/5
Block: 1.5/5
