5 is the highest rating.
This Yamato was made for Decks that run a lot of
Permanent Mission Cards. He's an Earth/Water with 1
Hand Cost who's also a T5. Having two ways to pay
the Hand Cost can really help. He's 5/4-3/2, which
makes him a good Back Ninja for most situations
(sometimes he just could be good as the Head Ninja
as well). His first Effect is activated when he's
put in play. You get to look for one Permanent
Mission Card in your deck whose Entrance Cost is
equal or lower to the amount of Permanent Mission
Cards you have in play at that moment. This can be
good when you have a lot of Permanent Missions out.
And, remember: The Permanent (X) Missions count as
The second part, which is Valid, is activated when
one of your Permament Mission Cards would be removed
from play. Rather than send it to your Chakra Area,
Discard Pile, or anywhere else, you get to shuffle
it into your Deck and then draw one card. That part
is pretty awesome if you ask me. Note that it says
"removed" but doesn't specify how. Remember that
when a Mission Card is removed it can be due to an
Effect that takes it out of play or simply because
it expired. This effect is optional, but the draw
power looks pretty good.

Turning Over A New Leaf
This shinobi definitely has an unique style, but
before I get on down to the details of today's
review I'd like to say that every card has potential
and not every deck should be packed with cards of
all the same kind. Don't take this as a signal
beam beckoning for anti-meta play styles, but lets
not downplay a cards utility by comparing it against
Mr.Perfect Combo's....with that out of the way, the
winds of change that breathe life into the fire of
the Leaf Village offer us Yamato.
Yamato has always seemed like an interesting
character in the anime, and has proven this
fascination right through Yamato (Unique Style).
First thought that popped up, the Ino-Shika-Cho
starter deck, a deck that will take advantage of
this card six ways to Sunday. Many of Earth decks
benefit from draw support, and being able to fetch
and recycle cards like Messengers, Lunch Box, BBQ,
and others. The first effect might seem unreliable
for those that play on the sure path, but I'll take
what some might consider a risky effect any day in
my deck...matter of fact I play him myself! His
second recycle effect is not as glamorous on a
re-examination, you have to make sure your mission
is getting removed from play...but let that boil
down to semantics. For a turn 5 his stats are fine,
and three mental power plus his duel element is
something to keep happy about. In limited, this guy
will play not as well due to the choice to use other
versions more First Hokage friendly, but in
unlimited and block he'll do amazing in an Earth
dominant deck. Just plant the seeds of strategy with
Yamato and your victory will surely bloom...
Limited: 3.5 / 5.0
Unlimited: 4.0 / 5.0
Block: 4.1 / 5.0
Art: I Don't wanna know why he's holding his arm and
I don't want to find out...
