Hello Pojo Fans,
Secret Six Samurai – Fuma is a Level 1 Samurai that gets you a search and Special Summon from the deck except itself. Being Level 1 you can use One for One with it if you’d like, it may be quicker just searching it with Shien Smoke Signal or RoTA or Gateway. It can also get Aestheticism of the Six Samurai if Kageki has 200ATK as well. The search and Special Summon is great, Samurai needed a generic search and Special Summon archetype-specific monster. 1800DEF is decent and can hold against some monsters, but losing a Samurai and gaining another isn’t bad at all. It also is worth noting that it doesn’t specify a level, so you can go for Grandmaster with Fuma. Fuma also inherits the banish to prevent a destruction of 1 Six Samurai monster. While mass removal is still dominant, there are still target effects that exist that can hurt Six Samurai. With only Magatama and Shi En as forms of protection against spell/trap, this is quite the useful monster to consider teching in the Six Samurai build. The spots are few and far between for a standard Six Samurai deck (having played one in the past), so you may only run one.
Until Next Time
Secret Six Samurai – Fuma is a Level 1 Wind Warrior-type Tuner monster with 200 Atk and 1800 Def. 1800 Def is nice for a Level 1. Also, being a different attribute from yesterday’s card helps search ability along with the usual ROTA and Six Samurai search cards. Fuma can Special Summon any Six Samurai monster from the deck if it’s destroyed by anything during any turn. It doesn’t even need to go to the grave. The effect is not once per turn, so running multiples shouldn’t be a problem. If you have a card that gives you advantage by destroying cards from your hand, use it on this to refund the ‘cost’. Being a Tuner helps with another way to do Shi En, but there are easier ways already in the deck. Finally, Secret Six Samurai standard effect applies to protect a single Six Samurai from destruction by banishing Fuma from the grave. Effects that can be activated multiple times per turn are good. Special Summoning from the deck is good. The only thing that hurts is it not being Level 3.

We dig deeper into the new Secret Six Samurai monsters with a Level 1 Tuner, Fuma.
Being a Level 1 Tuner, you can Normal Summon Fuma and then use Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan to Special Summon himself and immediately go into Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En. Fuma is a Warrior, so Reinforcements of the Army is an option and being a Six Samurai gives you Shien’s Smoke Signal as well. The stats are standard in the ATK for a Level 1 and great in the DEF for a Level 1. Being Wind has few advantages, since it honestly is one of the more undersupported attributes. Fuma has the effect where if he is destroyed, you can summon a Six Samurai from the deck. This is good with yesterday’s card, Kizaru to be honest, but you can also get to a Level 2 Tuner like Kagamusha if you already have a Level 3 like Hatsume or Kaigeki. This also gives synergy between Six Sams and True Dracos thanks to Diagram still being at 3 in the TCG along with Master Peace. Fuma also has the Secret Six Clause. Overall a great floater for the Six Sam deck, helping the diversity of the deck in ways you can play it if you want to mix True Dracos into the Six Sam deck.
